    Triple H reacted to jenni9579 in July sleevers please check in..   
    I know I should be happy with 27 and I really am. It's just that I thought being almost a month out I would've lost a little more. I'm really trying to be patient but i waited almost a year to have this surgery, and now I'm stuck waiting for the stupid scale to move. Doesn't seem fair.

    Sleeved 7/24 and have lost 27 lbs so far. My scale hasn't moved in 2 weeks either. Getting so very discouraged I knw stalls happen but I wasn't prepared for it to be so soon.

    Triple H reacted to goutt in Stall Question or Not Working Question   
    I am in the same place you are. I was sleeved the 25th of June. I had a stall for 3 weeks. It can be so frustrating. I keep reading about some people who are just slow losers. It is disheartening to realize I am one of them when the NUT said to expect about 5 pounds a week. However, I keep reading about people who are successful over a longer period of time. I am following the rules and doing everything I am supposed to be doing. We just need to hang in there and count the non scale victories. I am off some meds I was on before and I am at the weight I was when I met my husband 14 years ago. Hang in there all! We can DO it too!

    Nope you are not the only one. I lost a lot right away, then nothing for a month and a few stalls that last a week or so. Just hang in there! It will fall off when your body gets ready for it to fall off. DOn't even worry about the pounds that came back. They will disappear too and you will start on the downhill slide again. Promise:)

    Triple H reacted to DeniseM in No weight loss with sleeve?!   
    I think that in the first few months, you really have to work hard at eating all the wrong things to not lose weight. Physically, there is only so much space in your sleeve for food, so it is almost a guarantee that you will lose. However, if you do not change your lifestyle by adding in exercise and completely change your food choices and eating habits, and eat the same way after surgery that you did before surgery, then the surgery will not work. It is merely a tool to get you started on a new path, but you have to put in the work and make many changes and sacrifices to see big and permanent results.

    Triple H got a reaction from LivingForGod in EATING.....   
    Hi there I am 6 weeks post op. My surgeon told me to follow the 30 min rule above but I am a rule breaker to the core of my being! I have tried it all, so I find that I can not eat as much if I drink up until I start eating. If I try to drink even a literal SIP of anything after I've eaten, I throw up. It's very frustrating because you get so thirsty after you eat! I carry gum or sugar free hard candy to combat the desire to drink. Good luck!

    Triple H reacted to DebiC in Lasagna Cupcakes!   
    Made these for dinner tonight- 1 was more than enough for me (plus salad). The other adults in my family each ate 2. We all voted this is a definite do again!!!! Portion controlled.
    Lasagna Cupcakes
    2 cup marinara sauce (I just used 1 jar)
    3/4 pound ground beef or turkey
    24 wonton wrappers
    8 ounces shredded mozzarella
    3 ounces Parmesan cheese
    4 ounces Ricotta cheese
    (optional) basil for garnish
    Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spray muffin tin (12) with cooking spray.
    Brown beef and season with salt and pepper. Drain. Add sauce. Mix.
    Begin with a wonton wrapper and press it into the bottom of each muffin tin.
    Spread with a small spoonful of Ricotta cheese.
    Top with a little meat sauce then some parmesan and mozzarella.
    Use around 2 teaspoons of all the ingredients depending on your personal preference.
    Repeat layers ending with cheese.
    Bake for 18-20 minutes or until edges are brown. Remove from oven and let cool for 5 minutes. To remove use a knife to loosen the edges then pop each lasagna out. Garnish with basil (if desired) and serve.

    Triple H reacted to AmandaRaeLeo in Breakfast Wrap   
    I just wanted to share my tasty and easy to make Breakfast wrap.
    1 Eggland's Best Cage Free brown egg
    1oz Oscar Meyer's Carving Board ham
    1 slice Kraft 2% American cheese
    1 Buena Vista low carb tortilla 8 inch
    I use Smart Balance nonstick butter spray to toast the tortilla in the pan and keep the egg, which I make over hard, from sticking. I use the nonstick spray when browning the ham.
    I toast the tortilla. Set it on the plate.
    Place the cheese on the tortilla
    Cook the egg over hard, then place it on the cheese.
    Brown the ham and place it on the egg.
    I've also made it with crumbled turkey sausage. It takes me about an hour to eat it and its very filling.

    'shrinking the liver' helps your surgeon who is trying to help you. Try HARD to be strict for the next week. Remember you will have to make BIG changes with the sleeve, just start now!

    Hey Triple... what kind of diet are you on? I was sleeved on June 24th &I had to do a 2 week low carb diet. It was hard but the last 2 days I only did my protien shakes with almond shakes & drank a bottle of magnesium citrate. I wanted to be sure my liver was shrunk enough. I did cheat that first week by pigging out on a pint fried rice. I ended up losing only 3 pounds that first week, then 10 the second week for a total of 13!!! Ask me any qeustions you want , & I will try to help you!

    Hang in there. It's 7 days left of the diet. You can do this, and you need to do this! I know it's tough - I'm finishing my diet as of tomorrow, for surgery on Tuesday, so I definitely know how tough it is.
    That said, what makes you say that you are failing the diet? What is your diet plan, and where are you deviating?
