    AtlantaRed got a reaction from finally on my way in December 2013 Sleevers Come In!   
    Alright December Sleevers, I'm hoping that this title brings more people in so we can follow and encourage each other through our journeys.

    I am 40. I'm 5'4" and about 308 right now. I'd like to get to a healthy BMI which would be around 145. I'm hoping for a December 4th or 5th date with Dr. William Johnson.

    Everyone introduce yourselves!

    For me, that is a classic feeling of being too full. I would say it's definitely the eating with drinking. If you eat and drink, you'll have to leave room for the fluids by decreasing the volume of food you eat. If you chew your food well, it really isn't very hard (for me, anyway) to not drink while I eat. It's such a small amount. That's why we're not supposed to drink with our meals, because the Fluid takes up valuable room so we take in less food and then are likely hungry sooner.

    Hi Cindy,
    I'm no expert but I've seen several times in the boards that our bodies cannot process more than 30 g of Protein at a time, so you may want to split up that shake into 2 servings.
    Yes, the calories in shakes counts towards your daily caloric intake. On my plan, anything without caffeine counts towards your Fluid intake so the shake counts towards your fluid goal. Fluids should be at least 64 ounces a day. In my plan, we are supposed to aim for 600-800 calories a day.
    Hope that helps some!

    So I'm wondering if anyone else is experiencing the yoyo scale? I'm down a pound for a day or two, then up a half or whole pound. The next day it usually goes back to lower than before the gain but it really depressing to see gains when I'm eating 500 calories and walking a mile. Grrrrrrrr.

    Maybe just tell them you had girl issues and while recuperating, you lost some weight and it has motivated you to continue!

    Thanks for the great advice guys!! I decided not to say anything and I'm glad! He didn't comment and I didn't offer. My mom ended up coming over which is awesome. He did eye my plate and portion of food but didn't say anything.
    I am definitely getting stronger. I was always scared to talk in groups of people and finding it easier to converse with my son's hockey team parents and my daughter's dance parents as well. Also I'm in University and answered my first question in a class of 75 last week. Feels good to be confident!
    Thanks everyone for the support. I can't believe I didn't think of not telling him, like that was even an option! Ha!

    So today I am 4 weeks out. I am down 32 pounds however that also includes the 2 week preop. I am just a tiny bit disappointed but I know it will come off and 32 pounds is nothing to sneeze at. I've gone from a BMI of 52.2 to a BMI of 47.5 and have lost 19% of my weight. I was going to check my measurements but decided it would be easier to do it on the 13 of each month rather than every 4 weeks.
    Hope everyone has a great weekend!

    Hi all, just wanted to update. I was sleeved 12-16 and went for my first post-op appt yesterday. I'm officially down 22.2 pounds!! I was excited & my surgeon was very pleased. I know it's not as much as some folks but it feels great to me! Down at least one pant size and probably another if I would just try!
    Have a great weekend!!

    My list of soft foods includes deli meat. So, I get 2 different deli meats (usually London broil roast beef and turkey) and I measure out 3 ounces for lunch and dinner. There's about 20 g of Protein in the deli meat. You can also have chicken salad, egg salad, tuna salad. I'm not a fish person but I think most baked fish is "soft." I do deli meats, string cheese, unsweetened applesauce. I can even have regular chicken if it is cooked in a crock pot and very moist. Hope that helps!

But wow, I feel ur pain, I got up today w intentions of a good shower n walk, started out drinkn Protein from the get go. Then this rush of debilitating exhaustion came ovr me. Yuck! I mean, I was panting from being tired. My 9 yr old asked if I was ok bc she said I was breathing hard. Wow, tired is an understatement:( took my bp, was 130/80 hr 103, geez. Neways, guess I'll lay here n c what happens for a bit. Follow up is Monday, Shuda been two weeks but I was in for a week n a day, so he said to come c him to make sure I'm ok. Well I pray that this day is a gr8 one for you all. Take care n hope to chat ltr. )
