    Wounds all nicely healed, weight down 27 lbs, feeling very tired but everything seems to be going well.

    Weirdly having loads of fat days and not feeling the loss at all.

    Not feeling hungry at all, I forget to eat or just don’t fancy anything. I have to get better at reminding myself to eat.

    Congrats on the weight loss, glad you’re feeling good. I’m so glad I had my sleeve, it’s taken some getting used to but I’m getting there! Go out for my first meal with the family on Sunday to a chinese restaurant! Am planning my 4 mouthfuls very carefully ๐Ÿ™‚

    It’s great to have some ‘sleevers’ on here with whom to share wisdom and support. It’s also educational for me!

    Fab weight loss. Really try to remember to eat regularly as that will keep your metabolism ticking over. When we starve ourselves, our bodies go into famine mode and hold on to every last ounce of fat on which it can feed in the future – hence no weight loss. Isn’t the body clever. Bit too clever when we are trying to shift the pounds though!

    Keep up the good work and thank you for posting so regularly. I will start a new thread just for Sleeve patients so you can all ‘meet’ up together there and swap tips ๐Ÿ˜‰

    I’m having to make an effort to eat regularly to maintain energy.

    Hi Falcon

    Please don’t forget you have had major surgery and one that is supposed to help you control your appetite. However, if you are feeling poorly, I suggest you contact your team. So long as you keep hydrated, you should be fine (and take your supplements) but as I am not a clinician, it would be wrong of me to say ‘Don’t worry’! If it were me, I think I would contact my team just to be on the safe side.

    Hope you are feeling a bit brighter today ๐Ÿ˜‰

    I’m not poorly, just low energy but I have been allowing myself to go far to long between meals. Trying to be more disciplined.

    After years(decades) of feeling bad every time I eat it is a huge change in mind set to remember that it is important to eat regularly. The old habits of the past are deep rooted.

    As they are with about 99% of us who opt for wls. It can be done though. I didn’t get to 26+ stone by mindful eating!!

    There is nothing virtuous about skipping meals. It’s almost as self destructive as constant eating. finding the happy balance will come but it will take time. In the meantime concentrate on keeping up your fluids, taking your supplements, getting enough gentle exercise to keep everything moving (not eating causes constipation in the long run) and allowing yourself some time to adjust. Be kind to yourself. Be patient with yourself and learn to love yourself again ๐Ÿ˜‰
