    Any March 2018 Sleevers?

    Good morning and I had my surgery March 2018 .. yes I have hit a stall but still trying to maintain. I have reach my goal but the goal of the doctors I’m not sure but from weighting 367 to 165. At this point it’s trying to stay on track and I say to myself I’m not dieting this is a lifestyle change and I’m commmited. So fellow BariatricPals congratulations on your one year and congratulations to the ones who made the choice

    I feel so down

    Do not feel sad or bad .. the weight is coming off and that’s a good thing if it wasn’t then start to worry. You don’t want to loss to fast and with exercising this will help you tone better.

    It’s hard to believe...

    Congratulations
  6. I was sleeve on 3-22 and I feel the same way not hunger but drink plenty of water and protein shakes food has no appeal to me and just trying to eat soft foods gets boring. I have tried like chicken and chicken salad but at this point I can only tolerate 3or 4 baby spoons and my taste buds have change tremendously please tell me they will return to normal
  7. Make sure you go and get fitted to make sure that is the size you need. I don’t know what department stores are in your area but major stores will fit you. I went from a 42DD to 36G and breast looks great went to Dilliards but the web site is a great idea after you know the correct size

    Keeping Surgery Secret

    I had to experience this over the weekend when I went out of town and spent time with family in another state and people were wondering why I wasn’t eating I just explain I was watching what I eat and trying to eat healthy but one lady just keep going on and on and eventually I just excuse myself from table but I felt she didn’t need to know and going forward my answer will be like everyone else I issue and watching what and how much I eat

    Poll: What is your goal?

    I didn’t set a goal weight but at 5’5 sleeve on 3-22 @283 lbs wearing a size 18/20 now @ 214 size 12/14 last check which was 2 weeks ago.. I want to look healthy and off all prescriptions but mentally and physically I think it’s what best for you. If people didn’t know you before and you were a size 4 or 6 they would think you are okay but it’s people who you know who look at you differently so get to your happy spot

    Optimism??!

    Let me be clear I don’t want to upset anyone. This is my opinion. I was taught to love myself at any size. I did not have a weight problem growing up I was the typical high school school and all the way up to my 30’s my weight gain started with kids and eating on the run ( yeah blaming kids) but we were constantly at different sports event and traveling so we ate fast foods but to get back on subject . My size was a 18 when I started my journey and now I am a 14 since my 3-22 sleeve. I look at my size 18 and they are hanging off so to be happy like I wanna be I decided yeah I need new clothes I still wanna look good so I was just saying out with the old in with the new I know a lot of people on this site are larger and had to struggle as I did with weight and we are at different stages but congratulations to all who are doing something about it so no shade

    Biakitty.. I had 1 week liquid then purée which I am still on and like must of us I don’t eat a lot so in a sense I still have liquids also .. so far popsicles, smoothies, beets, hummus, mashed potatoes, I did try the ground beef and cheese (2 baby spoons) and got tired of chewing where it was soft and trying different things but water is my best first I even put my protein powder in it

    Any March 2018 Sleevers?

    Thanks for the information I was wondering did it get better eating and the layered ground beef sounds so good. You seem to be on the right track even with your work schedule. I have 4 weeks of paid @ 100% and I am taking that time off let’s keep in touch and keep up the GREAT work..

    All is well with me on soft foods and that’s only 2 to 3 baby spoons and I trying to get water in as well as protein powder but seems like March sleeves are doing okay. I guess patience is the key if you were like me I did everything fast .. eat , talk etc just life moving fast so to say take sip or sips I am learning.. I lost almost 50 pds prior to my surgery date which was 3-22 starting at 283 at 1 wk after I weigh 220 .. probably have lost more now but it will come off the weight and good luck and we are in this together so please do well as you can
  22. Thanks for the information very helpful cause now I am not a happy person right now I feel like my protein shake want to come back up and I don’t wanna think reflux but that’s exactly what it feels like but it’s good to know that things will get better
  23. So at Philadelphia what are you eating for lunch or dinner now can you give us examples because I am almost 3 weeks out and having hard time eating 2 or 3 baby spoons of food
