Got gastric vertical sleeve on 12/17/2013.
408.0 lb Lost so far: 12.0 lb.    Still to go: 183.0 lb.    Diet followed N/A.

Diet Calendar Entry for 20 December 2013:
34 kcal Fat: 0.07g | Prot: 0.04g | Carb: 8.24g.   Dinner: Wyler's Chicken Bouillon Cubes, Apple Juice. more...

I had my sleeve 12-06-07. I lost 115 lbs in first 8 months. I gained 40 lbs back though, which was not hard for me to do, in the past 6 years. Just got to cut back on those nasty, but good tasting, carbs! Best of luck to you!

It's important right now to get your fluids and protein in. I had a very hard time getting fluids in the first month and had a hard time choking down those protein shakes as well. Dehydration is your enemy and not enough protein is bad for your muscles. A few words of wisdom from a fellow sleever. :-)

My wife has done an excellent job of getting the protein into things I like so that hasn't been an issue. I do have a problem trying to get all that water in at this point though.

Please, make sure you eat and drink as much as you can. I don't mean over eat just don't get like I did in 2005 when I had a RNY. I got anorexic . I wouldn't eat and got very sick. Best of luck to you.

Thank you Debi334, I have noticed that my water intake is really lacking... I am going to focus on that this week and try to make sure I keep my protein up as close to 60g as I can.
