April Update from everyone



Recommended Posts

I had my month post op and the doc says i'm doing great. I feel great and everyone is telling me I am looking great. I am on soft foods now so trying different things. I notice though that I can eat more than most people on here but not too worried. I still cant get in more than 3 oz so thats an indication that it is working. I am on a stall but expected it wouldnt pass me up either so I'm not sweating it too much. Well maybe just a little bit lol. When I was on mushies, for the mashed to add flavor I used a little olive oil and cooked some vidalia onions. OMG it was sooooooooo good. Softs for about a week then I can eat more normal. A little afraid of that because I don't want to over do it but excited at the same time. Just in time for my sisters wedding yayyyy! Hope everyone is doing great too!

It might be helpful to also include your weight at time of surgery. Those with more to lose tend to shed weight faster initially...

Surgery on 4/15/11

Surgery weight - 235

Current Weight - 204

Lost 31lbs in 6 weeks, 4 days.

I lost a huge amount the first 3 weeks but it's slowed to 1 to 2lbs a week these last three. I started exercising 2 weeks ago (cardio 5x/week + strength training 2x/week) so I'm just waiting for my body to adjust.

-13 on the 2 week pre op

-17 on the one month mark

+3 over the past week

Dont be discouraged. I know what I am doing wrong. Got on reg food and went a little nuts after having nothing but liquids and mushies for the past 6 weeks (2 weeks pre op/4 weeks post op). Getting right on that band wagon again though. I am only going to change my ticker once a month though so I have time to lose those 3 again and hopefully plus some on top of that. Good Luck!

I have lost 37lbs. I weighed 240 the day I took my leak test. I didn't lose much right away because of my leak and having the tpn, but as they tapered me off of it, the weight started coming off.

Surgery weight was 232.

I've lost 32 pounds.

I'm feeling good. My recovery was been ok. I feel guilty if I don't exercise everyday. I walk anywhere from 45 minutes to 2 hrs a day. I have also signed up for a half marathon in October.

Gday all

Well I posted earlier on this and my update today at 6 1/2 weeks post op recovery has been great, my back has almost healed up from the damage from lack of blood flow due to extremely long surgery to remove lap band and be sleeved, for those who don't know it took 8 hrs to remove and repair damage and then sleeve me.

Pre op weigh in I was 435 lbs today I'm down to 366.9 lbs it's been a struggle at time no energy some days just want to be couch potato, but still managing to get 1 hr at gym per day on treadmill doing average of 3 mile in the hr, best was 3.7 miles worst was 1.4 that day just walked so slow no energy at all.

I'm drinking about 140 oz of Water a day and getting in close to 90 grams of Protein in a day also, been trying to get some fruit in but found watermelon hard to get in, been eating loads of blueberries and blackberries with yogurt .

Cheers Malcolm

      I feel like I've finally gotten past the biggest hurdle. Surgery date is September 6th, the day after Labor Day, and yesterday I got my insurance approval letter. I've followed everything they've told me to do, and I've even lost 30 lbs on my own since hubby had to change his diet for diabetes. No worries now about having to do 4 weeks of the liver shrinking diet instead of 2. On my initial visit, if I had gained just 5lbs I would have had to do 4 weeks. It's getting closer. Just 2 more months to wait.

        Although the prep work took energy, I found the biggest hurdle was post-operative. The first 48 hrs were extremely uncomfortable. I did an overnight and trying to down the liquids, Tylenol, and especially the barium was rough. Thankfully though, I got away with only having to have 1 belly injection after surgery. Needless are not my thing.

      I am looking for people to connect with that are 4-5 years out. Many of the support sights I go to are all newbies. And while I enjoyed that when i first had my surgery and found it useful, I am looking to exchange ideas with folks that are out a few years. I am slowly gaining weight back and losing my excitement. I don't want that!

      How do you stay focused? I'm struggling a bit the past three days.  All I want is sweets and carbs.  I have no clue what changed but for some reason I'm craving hard.  I'm literally dreaming about food and when I wake up, I'm thinking about my next meal.  I'm not "hungry" but so munchy.  I'm trying to stay focused, busy, exercise and the likes but this looking struggle is getting to be so hard.  I meet with my nutritionist tomorrow and I'm so hopeful she has some advice.  My protein intake is great, liquids on point, even throwing in some raw veggies and berries to curb the sweet/carb craving.  Thoughts?
