    You know you lost weight when

    When you get on an airplane... You actually fit in the seat with room, and you have tons of leftover seatbelt. :-)

    Any september 2013 sleevers?

    Hi everyone I was sleeved on September 25th, 2013 SW 282 CW 192= 90lbs lost so far. I feel amazing I'm excited for my 9 month appointment with my Dr. I'm hoping to hit 100 lbs lost by then. My weight loss has been pretty consistant, averaging about 8-10 lbs per a month. I work out 4-5 times a week, i change my workout routine every 3 weeks, this week i've added bulgarian split squats, and jumping jacks with weights. I do a ton of cardio usually about 17-20 miles between the bike and eliptical or eliptical and running on the treadmil. I tend to spend close to 2 hours at the gym during my 5 day rotation. I love it and feel stronger every day. If I hit a stall I actually take a break from the gym and change up my eating usually incorporating a tiny more fat and carbs in my diet and that seems to do the trick. Making up on the weightloss. I eat 5-6 small meals still. I weight and messure everything I eat, I'm doing 1/4 cup portions of Protein my dr said at this point I can basicly eat as much as a can of tuna will hold. so i try to keep that in mind when i'm doing my 3 main meals and portioning out veggies, althought I can honestly say I never finish because I still get full very easily. I hardly eat any carbs! My carb intake is usually under(12 grams) per day unless its that "time of the month". I'm so happy I finally put myself first for the first time in my life. It really feels amazing

    *September Sleevers Check In*

    Hey everyone, I was sleeved on September 25th, 2013 SW 284 today I'm at 222= 62 lbs lost. I'm at a major stall I haven't lost anything in over a week. I know I have not been getting enough Protein either! Today I'm trying to get in 60 Grams It's so hard! I know when I eat protein I get out of my stalls though. Today I'm doing, Yogurt 2 oz at a time 6 grams of protein per (12) chicken Sausage protein(11) Chicken 2 oz at a time hoping to have the full amount by the end of the day for 31 grams of protein and FF Ricotta for a snack later should bring me to 60. If I can truly eat this much! How are you guys getting in your protein?

    *September Sleevers Check In*

    Congratulations Everyone: I'm also having a hard time getting Protein in. I take1 bite and am full. Protein drinks I am not able to drink. I know I'm suppose to take in 60 grams a day, but it's so hard, I'm no where near that! I know if you get a good amount though and drink Water it helps with the weight loss, I wonder why that is?. My 3 month appt is next week. I was hoping to be at a 40-45% loss of my excess weight. I lost another 2 lbs this week so I'm hopeful to hit my goal I set for myself. Keep up the good work everyone!

    Anyone Afraid of Telling Others about WLS?

    Hello, I Only told my mom, my boyfriend, my brother and my aunt. Noone else needs to know my business. If I eventually decide to tell people I will but right now I have not told anyone. Before I had my surgery you have to start eating healthy so everyone new that is what I was doing. I'm just a little over a month out and people do notice and I just say I'm working out and eating healthy. Has seemed to work for me. As far as being in the hospital I just said I was having my Gallbladder out. No questions asked. Anyways congratulations on your surgery date. :-) It's the best decision I have made for my life. :-)
