  1. Made this tonight, found it on the All recipes site (great resource) It was lovely and I served it with grilled swordfish that was yummy too: Squash Casserole Try this squash casserole, Saute a yellow squash and onion for 5 minutes until partially done. Crush a half sleeve of butter crackers take one half add one half cup colby or chedder cheese one egg and a half cup milk. Mix the egg, crackers and cheese together. Fold in the partially cooked squash and onion. Put in a shallow baking dish and top with the remaining crackers. Put a couple of dollops of butter on top. Bake at 400 degrees for 25 minutes. Enjoy

    July sleevers please check in..

    I was sleeve on July 24, 2013. Started at 387 and i'm down exactly 200 pounds. No regrets everything positive. Feeling great. I love life again.
  8. Hello everyone. I am now down almost 200 pounds and everyone tells me that I am too thin. I feel great as a matter of fact I can't remember when I felt better than right now. When I enter my food using My Fitness Pal, I almost always get a warning that I haven't eaten enough food for the day. I know I have to eat enough to keep me well nuorished. I am averaging about 1200 to 1500 calories a day. Are you folks doing about the same? Let me know how your doing and what your calorie intake is. BTW I am 16 months post op. Thanks everyone, Mark
  9. I think this is one of my latest pics. 200 pounds down in 14 months

    July sleevers please check in..

    I was sleeved on the 24th of July 2013. I am down 200 pounds and I feel fantastic. Getting the sleeve was the best think I ever did. No regrets whatsoever.
  12. Thanks Hope. I have started walking a bit and I feel really fantastic. I plan on working out in November after I am done working. And thank you for the compliment. Mark
  13. Hello all, I had my sleeve on the 24th of July 2013. My starting weight was 387 and my weight on the day of surgery was 341. As of today I weighed in at 191. I have lost all of my weight by controlling my food intake entirely. I do plan on starting exercise soon because I need to get some tone back. I look pretty gaunt considering I am six foot four inches tall. I went from a size 50 jeans to 34 jeans. Let me know what you all think. Regards, Mark

    Sleeve Vet Diets

    I eat everything I used to eat with the exception of moderation. I stay away from all white foods, no alchohol reduced fats except for nuts and avacado and olive oil. I stay mostly with chicken fish and veggies. One protein shake for breakfast in the morning made with almond milk, followed by a mid afternoon and mid afternoon protein bar. I still only eat around 1300 calories a day and up to 90 grams of carbs.

    The leg crossing is true, I never crossed my legs when I was heave, now I do it all the time even when bench rest shooting. Amazing

    Before and After Pics

    You will like Dr. Walton. He is the doctor that assisted my surgeon Dr. Hamilton Le. I had my surgery on the 24th of July 2013 at Integris hospital. I know of very few people that had many complications at Weight Wise. I had none also. Best of luck for you.

    Can't stop losing

    I am in the same boat. My nutritionist asked me to increase my amounts of "healthy fats". Like olive oil, avacado and things like that into my daily diet. I have also added a couple of small Snacks to my daily food intake. I know its hard to do but a half an apple or orange or even 3 or 4 crackers with Peanut Butter will help. I am 35 pounds below my goal weight my self. I still lost two more pounds this week. Good luck, Mark

    Dropped 3 pants size in 2 months

    I started out 13 months ago with size 50 pants and a 4xlt shirt. I am now down to a size 34 pant and a Xlt shirt. For most of last year I would buy 2 pair of cheap Walmart jeans because I lost so many inches so consistantly that it didn't make sense to buy any decent clothes. Now I have completely replaced my wardrobe with nice clothes and I am back in business.
