    Hi JenMN I was just wondering how everything is going with your thyroid? I was reading in thyroid post and saw yours that it was changed in April and weight loss was going good. I take .200 daily and have only lost 15 since surgery on June 9th and 23 total and feeling like a failure because it doesn't seem to be working for me. Thanks

    Hey JenMN -I'm doing really well! I do try a lot of stuff and it all seems to go down - sometimes I can only have a couple of bites and I get full fast or it sits a little heavier than normal, but it's all good. but I do seem to go back to the basic foods of soup, eggs or refried beans. right now I think exercise is the hardest thing for me to do right now. It's just a matter of finding time and just go and do it. Now that it's starting to get nice out - I can actually walk more outside which will be nice! So if this your first stall? I've been at the same weight now for the last week and a half....but after readying so many posts - I'm trying not to let it worry or stress me!

    Thank you for that, it's really going to help me going forward. My doc told me to try and drink 1.5 litres of milk per day, although I'm really struggling with that at the moment and not even managing a third of that. I will keep persevering with the water . Thanks again

    How did you find the first couple of weeks after the op? I still seem to be very swollen and I'm currently 2lbs heavier than I was when I went into hospital (presumably due to swelling). Struggling to drink much more than 20oz of water per day, but am having a little sorbet to get some flavour into my diet. Lol. x

5th week Post OP

by JenMN on 03-07-2014 at 03:54 AM
Hi I'm new here this is my 1st post. I'm Jen I had the vertical sleeve on Feb 3.
I am doing well I lost 23lbs on my pre surgery liquid diet and 27lbs since my surgery. I don't know if this happens to other people but do you guys forget to eat sometimes because you're not hungry? I can't tolerate too many different foods yet seems I do best with a poached egg, greek yogurt, cottage cheese, and canned fruits in water, or berries. I have had pain in my left shoulder and on my left side since
