Where are the 50s ???



Recommended Posts

Where are the 50's??? -- all I see is a topic about wrinkles! How has the surgery changed your life?

Okay, Luanne - here you go - Can cross my legs and love it! Can walk two or miles a day without having a heart attack! Can fit into size 8 clothes and love it! Can look myself in the mirror now (can't say I love it 'cause I STILL see the wrinkles! lol) without flinching! Can do anything I please without stopping to catch my breath every few seconds! Need I go on?? (smile)

Also, I am almost 10 months out and can eat a small amount of most anything. Still can't do a lot of very dense Protein like steak or chicken breast unless very, very tender and easily digested. I am trying now to go back to low carb as much as possible because I went through a month or so of beginning to eat "junk" in small amounts and don't want to re-train my thought processes back to bad eating habits. Reached goal of 150 in late February with weight loss of 101 total now. Will probably lose another 10 pounds or so if I can manage it.

Enough said? LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE my sleeve.

With your attitude & conviction, it willbe sooner than later! I went thru all that crap too and decided the $ would be well-spent going to Mexico.

Really truly just starting out on the sleeve journey. Decades, however, doin' the "such a pretty face" fat chick mosey....

HW 275

CW 243

BMI 41

Going for a hat trick in co-morbidities -- hypertension, arthritis, sleep apnea

Got denied for LapBand in 2006, irked the crap outta me. (All that crap still didn't make me lose much though...) So, since 07 been working on melting a few ounces while I dealt with hip replacement and spinal reconstruction. Decided maybe that denial was a blessing in disguise.

I WILL be one slinky sleevette or there will be some serious butt kickin' and name takin' -- this IS going to happen!!!

So for now, I'm working on proving to the insurance fairies that I do believe, I do believe, I do believe, have clicked my heels together 50 times so now I'm worthy of living, um I mean fully cognizant of the risks of going after this or dying early if I don't.

The hardest part? Having someone who knows absolutely nothing about me, emotionally, physically or personally decide that I haven't worked hard enough, suffered enough or can't seem to put down my fork long enough to get my soggyjunk outta the trunk or quake my booty off before I can have something done to MY body, for MY benefit and of MY own volition (that I actually have paid for through years of higher premiums and will continue to pay for)! But then again, I may be just a bit "sensitive" about "managed healthcare".....:angry:

Luanne:

May I ask how much the adventure in Mexico cost, where you went and the Doctor who did your surgery?

Dr. Aceves in Mexicalli, $8500. He did several friends LBs so google & research him; also from what I've read, he has done many on this VST, put him in this search engine also. The experience was great and I was not even nervous a minute.

I think I'm going slow.... I have no idea.. I haven't lost any in almost 2 weeks.. I have no lost inches I'm still wearing the same clothes and it's been 32 days.. but I'm not discouraged I know it will happen :) I'm in the mushy stages but can only keep down deviled eggs, yogurt, refried Beans and Applesauce... My Dr just told me to raise my calories to 800-900 now i'm trying to figure out how the hell do you do that AND still get in your Protein AND your Water... My GOSH I am STUFFED... I feel so tired it's like all I do is eat.. I want to go back to the eatting 3 Protein a day and thats it.. LOL

Way to go on the weight loss.. Y'all are doing fabulous :) I can't wait to wear the "smaller" clothes that have been hanging in my closet but alas.. I can't yet :( but i WILL :)

Sleeved on 4/26 came home from hospital and found I had gained 6 pounds! Drag and a half for sure! Down 5 pounds since 4/28. I really thought this would go faster :angry: . But, on the plus side, no nausea, heaves, pain is under control and the swelling must have gone down really quickly because I have no problems getting in the Proteins or Water.< /p>

      Hey ya'll. SO. I got down to 199 for the weigh in but gained it all back right after. I have to do another month of weight management. They switched out the nutritionists at the last second and she said she doesn't pass anyone unless they have 5 veggies a week. I'm starting metformin and Farxiga today. Doc found a little bit of blood in my urine but wasn't too concerned. I'm trying not to freak myself out either. Depression is a little more intense than usual. I'm all over the damn place.

      3/19 - It wasn't a bad day I stayed up quite a bit much of the day. Have to focus on walking more before it gets too hot to walk outside at all.   Pain was less, but insomnia has kicked in the last two nights
