  1. Today let’s post our before’s me and after. No numbers! Here’s me!
  2. I had my surgery August 21 of last year, my surgery weight was 294 today I’m 219. Starting weight was 311. I am happy and content, because I feel so much better than I felt at my heaviest! Sometimes we like to compare our numbers with everyone else, but everyone has separate journeys. First picture is current of me, I recently fit into size 14 pants! I was wearing size 24 pants day of surgery! Second pic, I’m the one in the middle. I can’t stand to look at it! :(
  3. I didn’t take before pics because I hated the way I looked. My starting weight was 311, currently at 235.. I couldn’t take a serious pic! Lol

    Chelle777, thank you. I really do appreciate the advice! It’s so hard to see everyone eating so good, while you have to stick with the program!

    Any August Sleevers out there?

    I was sleeved 8/21. Weight at surgery 294 now I’m 245.
  12. Hey everyone, so I can’t believe 3 months have passed since my surgery. I thought I would be on this site a lot after my surgery. I took a break because I became so obsessive of what everyone’s progress was. Why wasn’t I moving that same pace etc. since surgery I have most 40 pounds, total pounds since my highest weight 57 pounds. Started at 311 back in March now I’m 252. I have a long way to my goal. I am taking each day as it comes! Long journey ahead of me.
  13. I am currently in the 3 month supervised visit, and will more than have my surgery with DR. Watkins, UC Health west Chester Ohio! Anyone have any experience with him? Or your experience at UC Health! Thank you
  14. Hey all! There are sooo many topics out there and the one I see for August was for last year! Let’s discuss, the good and the bad! I am having my surgery in August. I have one more supervised visit and the off the insurance I go!
  15. Today marks two weeks since my surgery. Since August 21 till probably the 28th lost 14 pounds. More like water weight. After that I have just been at the same weight and it has not even been two weeks. I know it has only been a short time but I feel like this is telling me, I should not have done it. I guess I need some encouraging words now. Thank you everyone
  16. I finally broke my stall, 2 weeks later!!
  17. I just had my surgery two weeks ago and I’ve lost 15 pounds, I do not notice any physical difference, till I was putting lotion my feet today and they were significantly smaller.I was shocked! Has anyone lost weight on their feet first? I know such a weird question.
  18. Thank you all for the reality check. I know and have read about the stalls. But I know we have each other so we can vent too. And that’s what I’m doing. I just need to snap out of it and know 14 pounds is a lot! Patience is something I need to work on

    How many calories per day??

    Yes all of this info is perfect! Thank you all for that.
  20. So just had my surgery last week. So far my calorie intake has been around 400-600. Is this normal? Should I be higher. What are your numbers??

    August 2018 sleeve surgery!!

    I get a pain when I am eating yogurt. It’s the oikos strawberry yogurt. I was eating a spoonful , so decided to take tiny little bites and it didn’t hurt. I tend to forget I should be going really slow. I had surgery on the 21 of August. I was 294 that day. Today I’m 285. Not even a week yet and I’m seeing some loss. I don’t see a difference, but it’s good to see scale go down.
  22. My surgery is in the morning 730am. I have to arrive at 530am. I am so nervous. But it is something I have to go through for a better me! So I can be healthy and be able to a parent!! :)
