    Any September People

    IM SCHEDULED FOR SEPT 12
  3. There is still studies on the sleeve, I just want to share with all of the new sleevers and those who are about to be sleeve. I am a slow loser, I have not lost any weight in over 6 months, the weight loss stopped at 6 months, I don’t think anyone stalled for this long. Right now the gastric sleeve is still under the scope and mimicking the bypass. I am writing this to let you know this is not at all easy at least it wasn’t for ME. I am going to share a few pointers that I have learned on this post op journey. Now I am not saying this is you, but there just might be someone that is going through the slow loss as well and don’t understand why. The sleeve is a tool, you still have to work hard to get to goal Take my advice, don’t rush to eat solid food, stay on liquid, and soft for as long as you can. Stay away from coffee, I didn’t realize the importance until I did a detox and tried to drink coffee afterwards, the pain, that tells me what it is doing to my tummy. Did I mention don’t rush to eat whole food. Lol stay in that frame of mind, eating lightly Don’t let the fullness fool you, meaning you can really pack on calories even with the new tummy. Once you are post op from day one stay away from sweets, all sweets, I thought dark chocolate was ok, NOT OK. Did I mention don’t get comfortable with the sleeve Don’t compare yourself to others, you are designed the way you are. Eat high dense foods, full longer. I was eating light Snacks, eating the wrong foods ***NOTE*** I AM NOT GIVING ADVICE, JUST TAKE A LOOK AT WHAT YOU ARE DOING. I recently did a 5 day detox and the scale is moving again, sometimes you have to cleanse to get rid of toxins so the scale can move. So far so good. I will let you know

    Post Op September Sleevers, Roll Call

    i hate me right now i stopped losing at 6 months and have tried everything under the sun to lose. and nothing. i gave up at one tiime and we all knows what happens then old habits and old thoughts. i did the whole workout eating right to gain 8lbs and that 8lbs wont leave me. and no its not muscle, clothes are tighter. im so frustrated right now. i havent even been to my appt. for what for the dr to rag on me about how i didnt lose enough. starting to day i am on a 6 day cleanse and see what happens. i stopped working out for months due to issues. i started back last night after work 30 min on the bike. i am the original poster and i have not posted in a while. i feel like i am the only one that failed at this. i apologize for being so negative buts thats how i am feeling right now
