    March 2018 sleevers

    I was sleeved 3/12. I've lost almost 30 lbs since! I haven't really hit a "stall" yet, but I guess it depends on age and so many other factors too. SW: 255, CW: 227 Height: 5"3 Sent from my SM-G955U using BariatricPal mobile app
  4. Today I am exactly 4 weeks out. I was sleeved 3/12. I am down 22lbs! I can't believe it. I'm more excited about how I feel though. My energy is crazy, I'm so much happier, and the feeling of being full is amazing. It is something I have truly never experienced. I can't wait to see what else this life change will bring me.

    I do the premier protein shakes because they are genuinely the only ones I don't hate. They're only 160 calories for 30 g protein. So if I don't feel like having real food, I can drink two and stay under 400, even with the addition of a string cheese. They say to eat 4 times a day, but I find I can barely drink a whole protein drink in one sitting, so I'll split one of them into 2 and that's how I get my 4 meals in a day.

    I've been eating chicken, ground Turkey, shrimp, fish, etc. Honestly, I must puree the food in my mouth. As long as you chew it well enough, it has the same exact result as blending it. Sent from my SM-G955U using BariatricPal mobile app

    I'm on soft and only able to take in ~400 a day, but I get my 60 g of protein in with that. If I had to eat any more than I do I don't think I could do it. Sent from my SM-G955U using BariatricPal mobile app

    Oh wow! That is a lot of calories for 3 weeks out. My doctor expected us to not get any more than 500 in a day! Sent from my SM-G955U using BariatricPal mobile app

    You might be eating too big of pieces or too much in one sitting. Try eating slower and smaller. Keep taking the laxative. My doctor recommended I take the Miralax every day until I was able to go regularly without it. I now just take colace whenever I need it. Sent from my SM-G955U using BariatricPal mobile app

    Well, I know it wasnt the hibiclens. They gave us a bottle pre-op and we had to wash our entire body with it the night before and the morning of surgery. The only place I broke out in hives was in the exact shape and area where I had the orange prep after surgery. It was in the exact line of where they prepped me, even my surgeon noticed it immediately when I came in after the hives popped up. Sent from my SM-G955U using BariatricPal mobile app

    Chlorohexidine doesn't contain iodine, so I'm fine with shellfish Sent from my SM-G955U using BariatricPal mobile app

    No. I was fine with the hibiclens! I was allergic to the iodine prep they use (my surgeon told me it was specifically chlorohexidine). It's that orange stuff you wake up to being all over the area and surrounding areas of where you had surgery. Sent from my SM-G955U using BariatricPal mobile app

    It will! Just hold on. We all heal differently, all surgeons do the surgery different, some of us had more stomach removed than others, etc. Just keep on pushing through, because it is so worth it. I feel my clothes getting baggier and baggier every day! Sent from my SM-G955U using BariatricPal mobile app

    I'm so sorry! I had a rough recovery because I was allergic to the chlorohexidine prep they use from your chest to your pubic area before surgery. I was broken out in hives for the first two weeks. Then they found out I was allergic to the glue on my incisions, which made the irritation on them even worse. They're still not fully healed, but MUCH better. Sent from my SM-G955U using BariatricPal mobile app
