    Keto/VSG help please!

    Hey guys!! I haven't logged in here in forever! I had surgery 4 years ago (surgiversary was on the 8th) . My highest was 280.4 , I dipped down to 193 and then got pregnant. I didn't gain much through out my pregnancy, i breastfed after, and lost all the weight and then some. i got to 184.4 i think . Then i don't know what happened. I got back up to 220.2. On may 23rd i started trying to lose weight, I went to a weight loss doc and got put on phentermine . It curbs my hunger for sure but i went from doing the 5 bite diet, to counting calories, to low carb, to keto. 5 bite was good i was losing but it was hard and i kept cheating. counting calories was good but i wasn't losing a whole lot and felt like i needed more structure. Low carb was good but i felt like i needed more than that. so i tried keto. which im on now. I like it but i have someone helping me that hasn't had WLS and doesnt understand it. It's still hard to get in a lot. Like Protein still makes me super full , super fast. so i feel like im forcing myself to eat. I started on aug 2 at 202.4 i think it was. so 11 days later im hovering between 200.6 and 199.6 . i feel like EVERYONE is losing faster than I am, and i had WLS. So....has anyone that had the sleeve ever done keto? I'd like to continue doing it but is it ok to cut back my macros? what should they be at? can anyone help me????? Thanks in advance!!

    Weird Pain!?

    I think you just described what i've been feeling not sure though. I feel like on my left side when im sitting in a position such as driving, it feels like theres a lump there or if something is folding over inside. and on my right side i feel like i have lumps. I feel like these "lumps" are moving. I' mgoing to the doctor tomorrow so hopefully he can tell me if im crazy or what this is.

    You've come to the right place. This is sleeve nation Your making the right decision. I think if you did the pre-op diet that most of us have to do... (2-3 weeks of protein shakes....Mine was 6-8 a day of 100 cal shakes) Then you'll lose that in no time. I lost 16 lbs my friend lost 40. You will not regret getting the surgery, its amazing!

    Many questions

    Good luck! Every time I had a thought I wrote it down and asked my doctor. How long til I can lift my 75lb patient, how long should I be out of work, what are the chances of a leak, why the sleeve and not something else, can I gain back, how much am I expected to lose in the first year, what should I eat, how long til I can exercise, whats the diet like (they should give you a print out). I'm 9 months out tomorrow....If you have any questions feel free to message me i'll answer any questions you have .

    exercise..

    Sounds like your job IS exercise lol. I do home health care and since no ones there but me and my patient (who spends all of his time in his room) I keep dumbells, a resistance band, & ankle weights there. So throughout my 5 hour shift I do that stuff, and crunches...and run back and fourth in the livingroom. At my next patients house, I take care of a child so I take him for walks and I run up and down the stairs. Not sure what you do but theres ways to make a routine for yourself. Good luck If ya need a buddy msg me!

It's a lot thinner than it used to be but i think its coming back a little

  14. I was going to say b12 too, how much are you taking? Are you getting in enough protein? Maybe lack of protein is making you tired....and hungry. How much are you eating?
