    I was sleeved on 12/10/2013 and am down 84 pounds. I average about 675 calories/day and exercise 4 or 5 days/week.
    Aside from my ongoing constipation, things are going very well.

    Well dec. sleevers it's been two months and three days since my VGS. I'm down 52.4 from my highest weight. I'm overjoyed with my weight loss and higher energy level. The journey has had it highs and lows but the highs out weigh the lows. I'm so glad I made this decision and I look forward to my new life and all the activities I've been missing (but didn't know it). Wishing all of my Dec. buddies well and would love to hear about your progress. Miss seeing your thoughts, rantings, and ideas. :-)

    Today I bought yoga pants and a t shirt XL down from a tight size 22- probably should have been wearing a 24! I am so excited to get something that wasn't a plus size... Don't think I am out of the women's section yet, as the yoga pants are stretchy... But I'm getting closer

    Ok, two month update: 60 lbs lost. I started eating a few things here and there outside of diet, but keep in mind a healthy lifestyle, healthy diet and very heavy on Proteins.
    I have not had my two month appt yet but called NUT to talk to her about working out and diet. I feel so good and got clearance to work out so I've been working my butt off and the results are coming in.
    I still get nauseous if I drink Water too fast and at times forget to drink it slowly. I really can eat anything I want at this point but choose not to as a reminder of all the hard work to get me here and stick to the healthy diet.
    I hope all of you are seeing your results. I look drastically different, lost 3 whole pant sizes and am about to lose another.
    Keep on keeping in everyone. We all worked hard and will get there!!

    Hope everyone is doing well! Just checking in.. been super busy with work, family and other things.
    Managed to Celebrate my birthday this past weekend without indulging in all the party food that was around me. My ex-hubby had a huge superbowl party and I was surrounded by wings, pizza, chips, pretzels, subs, cake, Cookies, chili, mac and cheese, beer, wine and mixed drinks... O.M.G.!
    But I was good...actually took some Wendy's Chili, turkey pepperoni and string cheese with me...and happily ate only that... Amazing how much I've changed..I used to dive head first into all the goodies...
    What a difference a year makes.

    BTW you Look great. Congrats. Answer to you question have you tried using any of the yummy crystal lite drink mixes like mango pineapple, lemonaid, cherry etc. Vodka really mixes with anything as it really doesn't have much of a taste and clamato make a really good Bloody Mary. You could make a fresh fruit smoothie using berries instead of citrus. Wow lots of possibilities.

    teekay8887 reacted to tiffany1521 in 8 Months post op- 120lbs lost!- pics included   
    Hi everyone!
    I just wanted to post a few pictures of my progress since having been sleeved on 5/3/13. I know that there's someone reading this that's either considering surgery or already had it and are not where they wish they could be. I just want to say that it takes time, effort, dedication, and determination. I'd be lying if i said that i ate a ton of junk food since having been sleeved and lost all this weight. I lost this large amount of weight by working out and training like an athlete, eating clean, and staying hydrated. There were days where i cried, cheated, and gave up but ultimately, i got right back on track and continued. It hasn't been easy but it's definitely been worth it.
    I started at a size 26 and i am now a size 16/18. I weighed in at 383 on 5/3/13 and as of today, i'm 263lbs. I worked hard to see that 263 and am continuing to work hard till i reach the onderlands.
    I hope that this post can inspire atleast one person today
    If any of you guys have personal questions you'd like to ask, you can always reach me at: sleevedtiffy(at)gmail.com
    Wishing all of you luck and great success!
    Tiffany

    teekay8887 reacted to mistysj in Closet-shopping coming to an end   
    I went through my closet again and weeded out more things that were too big. I also tried on two tops and a pair of jeans that were too small last time. The tops both fit fine now and the jeans are just a bit too snug around the waist. I doubt I will ever wear them because they are already too big in the legs. They are a funny cut and I'm a funny shape. So this is basically it for closet shopping and everything smaller will have to be new now! Kind of a weird feeling. Also a weird feeling to be wearing some size 10s.

    My stall was about three weeks out and lasted for about a week. I was sleeved on 12/18. My weight lose is now steady and I really try only to weight myself a couple of time a week but that's not working to well. I'm still on phase two of my physician's diet. Don't move to fruits and veggies for another two weeks. :-(. Missing my veggies. My physician is conservative on diets. Hope that's a good thing. I go back to work on the 29th and I'm looking forward to getting back in a routine. I'm trying to get my daily meals on my work schedule to make it easier. I work some crazy hours and take call at least three days a week. My days can last from 10 to 16 hours especially this time of year when so many dialysis patients are hospitalize due to illness. Taking a big tub of my favorite Protein Powder to leave in my locker for those O My Goodness moments need some energy. Need some ideas on easy meals for breakfast and lunch.

    I make a tortilla-less chicken enchilada casserole
    Ingredients:
    1/3 cup skim milk
    3 ounces chopped green chile (I used canned)
    1/2 cup onions chopped
    1 cup Sargento Reduced fat 4 cheese Mexican blend
    1 can premium chunk chicken breast drained (I use costco or sam's club brand which are about 13 ounces)
    1 can Campbells 98% fat free cream of chicken Soup
    Preheat oven to 350 degrees
    Combine the Soup, green chile, onions, and milk in a large saucepan and heat to boiling.
    Remove from heat and add canned chicken breast and stir.
    In a small casserole dish, add one layer of the chicken mixture, top with 1/2 of the cheese, then another layer of the chicken mixture and top with the remaining cheese.
    Bake at 350 degree oven for 30 minutes or until bubbly.
    So easy!
