    Great loss! I had been on biotin over a yr before being sleeved to help my hair, skin and nails. Never did anything for any of them. I started shedding hair about four months out and it started easing up at eight months out and by ninth month, back to normal. Some folks use biotin shampoos and stuff but I didnt. Im more at a maintenance weight these days... 143. I stalled for two months, lost a pound about two weeks ago and nothing since then. This is my new normal :-)

    I'm still on puréed and I have half a Weetabix for breakfast with 50ml of semi skimmed milk, or porridge. For lunch I either have scrambled egg (1 egg) or a yoghurt, and for dinner I tend to have minced beef or minced turkey (1oz) with either carrot or broccoli (1oz). I always feel so full after my meals. During the day I drink a 500ml bottle of protein water. This takes me about 12 hours to drink, in between meals! How are you going with your food? M x

    That's good that you have quarterly follow ups with your dr. I went private for my surgery so not sure what the after care consists of. I have monthly dietician telephone appointments which are ok. I am taking liquid multivits as well as liquid calcium and magnesium. I sometimes have liquid iron too but the taste is so awful I tend to miss that occasionally!

    Hi Brenda, great to hear from you. I'm doing great too! I am one month post op and have lost 35lbs since starting this weight loss journey. I had a slight problem with one of my incision sites, but it seems to be healing now. I have been on puréed food for 9 days now and getting sick of the mushy stuff! Can't wait to get onto normal food in 3 weeks time. My stomach can only hold 2oz of food, so not a lot of calories going in. I am back at the gym too and burning more calories than I am eating. I've not had a follow up and don't even know if I will have one! Glad you are doing great! Keep in touch. Michelle x

    It could be from eating too much or too fast. Try eating just half of the amount and eat really slow to see if that helps. Eggs give me issues because there isnt much to them and its hard to not eat them fast. Ive thrown up more than once eating them:-)
  9. Hi Brenda, I got sleeved yesterday, I am home today. I had some discomfort for a few hours, but the meds really helped me. I walked the hallway at the hospital for 20 minutes about 4 hours after surgery. Then again later that evening for 40 minutes. I feel OK, some twinges when I try to bend, but no nausea, or significant pain. Good luck with your surgery!

    I have had good days and bad days. I had some nausea complications right after surgery so I had to stay an extra day. Since then I've been ok. I'm in the pureed food stage which to me is just disgusting LOL Can't wait until the next phase. I can tell you at first I did ask myself why I decided to do this, but then... when the pounds started coming off and I started putting on clothes I haven't worn in years... just seemed to make it all worth it! I see your surgery isn't until September? Are you going through nutrition classes and/or support groups pre-op? They really helped me have a realistic understanding of what I'd go through. I also did a lot of research on YOUTUBE and say so many video diaries.. I just listened to so many other experiences, good and bad. It really helped me.
  11. Thanks so much!

    I got mine from the chinese restaurant down the street. I would order a quart of it every few days. I also added a bit of unflavored protein powder to get that in as well. If you have any other questions, just ask:-)
