    August Sleevers?

    Its so great I checked this out. Its exactly 8 weeks since my surgery. I was 357 day of. I forget my weight at the one month mark but can day tod ay 8 weeks later I'm 317 so a loss of 40. I was getting so frustrated because I think I lost 30 first month and only 10 this month but it sounds like we are all in the same boat. What I do know is I've gone down through 3 different goal pants and clothes are fitting much better. Also I loved water and hate it now unless its ice cold....odd...and I now can smell an onion a mile away. Ive been bad with protein I don't keep track and don't drink my drinks....but then I try to eat high proetin foods. So frustrated I haven't lost more my second month but then again happy I haven't gained! ! Neal<br />Starting weight: 363. Goal: 250. Current: 337

    August Sleevers?

    Hey all...sleeved on august 22. Lost 45 so far. I am soo worried about stretching my stomach though. Now that I feel better I can pretty much eat anything. Some days I worry cause I've eaten more than I could during recovery. I listen to my body and eat when hungry and stop when I dont. I haven't dietedb at all figuring I can't diet and have the sleeve. Should I be concerned or am I being silly. Some days I can eat more others I cant. I just had a cup of soup with meat in it and feel guilty bit maybe I shouldnt. I just don t want this to fail since it seems to be working. So scared of stretching it out. Neal<br />Starting weight: 363. Goal: 250. Current: 337
  4. Hey all, As the title says I am new to the site and just recently had the sleeve done. I think I'm doing fairly well I'm past my first two weeks of Fluid and am now starting pureed foods. On the date I started the presurgical diet I weighed 363 after surgery and two weeks I now weigh 337. Not too bad. Looking forward to being able to update as I've gained confidence reading all your stories. Oh and ya, split up with my bf a month before this...never a better time to start!

    I appreciate the response. I too expected it to be much worse and I guess I am one of the lucky ones who have had little issue with any if it. I guess when I put that together with now not loosing I figure right away...oh just like my failed diets this ain't gonna work either. Ill try and put that fear aside and hopefully soon ill start to loose again:) Neal<br />Starting weight: 363. Goal: 250. Current: 337

    stalling with weightloss

    Well I'm still stalled its been about 8 days I'm really starting to worry like I can eat as much as I want or rather about a quarter to half a cup but can eat every couple of hours. So I'm wondering if I'm eating too much and that's why I'm not losing although eating half a cup is a lot less than I used to. It's just frustrating loosing so quickly and now not losing anything I'm feeling like I'm feeling somehow. Neal<br />Starting weight: 363. Goal: 250. Current: 337

    August Sleevers?

    I was sleeved on the 22. I have to say I have been pretty lucky not very much pain and I was out of the hospital in 2 days. It's now been just over two weeks and I'm back to work. I am a little sleepy sometimes but other than that my incisions are you in quite nicely and I don't have very much pain. To be honest the worst part of this whole surgery was when they took the drain out man that hurt like hell but as soon as it was out it took almost all the pain away I had em up side. Anyways now I have lost 24 pounds but I lost all of that within the first 10 days the last 8 days or so I haven't lost anything and I'm starting to worry. My surgeon says its normal but I feel like I'm eating too much I listen to my body n eat when I'm hungry I can eat very much maybe half a cup and then I'm full. But then I eat a couple of hours later. I am on pureed foods although I have snuck in a few things a little chunky and all seems to fit fine. I almost feel like I haven't had the surgery and I'm half worrying that I've stretched out my stomach already or something because I haven't lost anymore weight. Has anybody else experienced this?

    8 Week Post-Op Progress (With Pic)

    Great job!! I was wondering if you recall any stalls? I was loosing 2 pounds a day amd now 3 days in a row I've lost nothing. I'm worried that eating when I'm hungry isn't the way to go but I was told to as I'm still on poureed food. Should I be concerned? Neal<br />Starting weight: 363. Goal: 250. Current: 337

  13. Lol I know exactly what you mean. I tended to ignore the actuality of it as I was going through the year of hoops....it wasn't until I was on the surgery table when I though....hmmm what am I doing lol. But for me I had to go through with it. 30 years of failed diets was enough for me. Neal<br />Starting weight: 363. Goal: 250. Current: 337
  14. Congrats. Being excited and nervous is natural but you'll soon see the nervousness disappear as you start to loose weight. It's a great feeling. Good luck...and remember lots of liquid and Protein ( as awful as it might taste - although its still not as bad as Buckleys cough syrup...yuck! Neal<br />Starting weight: 363. Goal: 250.

  15. My dietician said after the post op liquids and purees food stages there isn't really a set diet. Right now I let my body decide. .if I'm hungry I eat. Is there a max calorie I should still be looking at? Am new to the sleeve and just starting on pureed and just wondering what I should be looking at after that. Starting weight: 363. Goal: 250.
