    jenngetsthin got a reaction from rs in Summer 2018 Surgery Buddies: POST-OP Discussion   
    Checking in. I was sleeved 8/16. I've been doing great. Had a slow loss in Dec (my own fault). I've already lost more in January than in December and only half way through the month! I'm down 69.2 from HW and 50.5 from SW. I've lost 44 inches too. Gone from a size 24 pants to a 16 or 18, a size 3X or 22/24 top to XL or 14/16, and a 44C bra to a 38/40 C/D. I've also been doing Zumba, which I love. I want to try kickboxing too. I'm super happy with my progress. I attached my most recent progress pic.

    jenngetsthin got a reaction from FluffyChix in To snack in between meals or not to snack   
    I eat 4-5 small meals/snacks per day. My surgeon is fine with it. Otherwise I can't get all my Protein in (and I don't do shakes anymore). My typical Snacks are cheese or Jerky, sometimes Pork rinds or nuts.

    I've been in the 240s since December 14th! I'm almost out (need to lose 0.7) so hopefully soon. I definitely had a slow go of it from Thanksgiving to New Years and it has picked up a bit. It's ok, I'm not in a hurry and I know I'll get there. I haven't been in the 230s for 10 years and even then it was a very brief stay. I plan to whiz right past and get into the 220s.

    That's awesome! I'M proud of you, keep working! I'm down 105 pounds as of monday, 95 since surgery. Down from a 28 to a 20/22, sometimes an 18. I work out 6x a week, weight train 3x. Working on seeing the chance instead of having body dysmorphia. I'll get there!

    jenngetsthin got a reaction from RinRin in New member, getting the gastric sleeve...and nervous   
    Honestly, it's not so bad. In the beginning, you won't want that stuff anyways. And after awhile, you can incorporate some of the stuff back in but in a healthier way. I eat burgers. I get them lettuce wrapped. I usually eat half and it satisfies me. I eat salami and cheese all the time. I eat an occasional slice of pizza. For me, it's all about moderation and Portion Control. I choose not to think of it as giving stuff up, it's just a new way of eating. I don't really miss Pasta or soda like I thought I would. I can still eat a small amount of bread (half a bagel or one slice of toast).
    Whatever you decide, I wish you luck.

    I was sleeved 8/16 and I've lost 37.1 since surgery and 55.8 including preop. I'm happy with my rate of loss. I'm 46, 5'4" and in perimenopause. It would take me months to lose a few pounds before surgery and I was always up and down the same 5-10 pounds.

    I'm 46 and sleeved almost 2 weeks ago. I've lost 9 lbs since surgery and 27.6 since my highest. I went through the process about 8 years ago but had some other health problems which prevented me from having the surgery. After taking care of those and then trying on my own to lose over the years, I decided to go forward again. Glad I did.

    Thank you. It sounds like you're doing great also. I didn't have a goal before my appointment which is why I thought I was doing really well. According to my NUT I am doing just fine. She simply said "surgeons are not dietitians ". He told me to try and get my calories from food rather than shakes like your Dr said so maybe I'll try and cut back. Otherwise I'll stay the course.
