Where Are My April 2012 Sleevers?



Recommended Posts

Hey April buddies!

Just wanted to post my 9month pics. These are a good side-by-side comparison from day of surgery until now. It's been really helpful to see the progress this way. I've been in a stall for the last 6 weeks or so' date=' but I'm still losing inches, so that's good. I'm training for a sprint triathlon on April 27th (1 year and 1 week from surgery date), so I've been working out a lot. It's a little frustrating that the cellulite is still so prevalent, but hopefully that will go away soon. There's also a lot of loose skin to work around, but hey, better than the fat it once covered, right?

Is anyone else training for an athletic event? I'm having trouble keeping the carbs to a minimum when I'm working out so much. I'd love some sports nutrition ideas if anyone knows of any.

Thanks! Hope everyone is well!![/quote']

I cant see your face but i can tell u look younger now and looking awesome!!!!

I'm scheduled for April 15 pending insurance approval and preop clearance. Excited but nervous. My surgeon is not requiring me to do a preop liquid diet but I'm thinking about trying a few days here and there of liquids only just to see if I can do it and to try and make the post off diet transition a little easier.

60 lbs lost is still amazing, so congrats!

I don't know what your starting weight was, but I was a heavy weight at 330 lbs, and we tend to lose a bit quicker. But it's definitely tapering off. I have to WORK for these lbs to fall off, and I don't mind putting it in.

I try to get in at least 70 g Protein a day, exercise as much as possible, drink 112 oz of Water each and everyday, and I stick to the program 85% of the time. I do fall off the wagon but never for long. I've got goals to reach and you will reach yours, too. I keep hearing that's it's not a race, but Marathon and I'm finding that to be oh'so true :) You'll get there. Just stick to the plan.

Sleeved April 20th 2012. SW 242.2, CW 150.0 so down 92.2lbs so far! I'm anxious to hit the 100lbs mark but my weight loss has slowed down quite a bit. I still have trouble with dense meats, especially chicken, but I don't regret a thing!! Congrats to all of us for our success!!

Does anyone else worry a lot about stretching your stomach? What does it feel like and how would I know if I was stretching it?

      Tonight, I swallowed my semi-horse-pill-sized multi-vitamin without wanting to hurl!
      So long, expensive chewable multi-vitamin, from now I can buy the cheaper, tablet vites at Costco.
      Next: try to swallow the actual horse-pill-sized calcium pills without wanting to hurl....

      1 month and 4 days from surgery and not losing. Actually have gained a couple pounds. Can't figure out what I am doing incorrectly. Have an appointment in a couple weeks hopefully she can sort me out. I don't know if I am not eating enough, not drinking enough, not walking enough. I get 60g of protein min a day, most days more. I have lost only 12 pounds since my surgery and I honestly thought I would be further along then this. Feeling regretful the last couple of weeks and I know it's early on but I feel like my honeymoon is being wasted.

      Hey ya'll. I've been trying to get more protein in my diet. I started tracking what I ate this week and I like it so far. It sort of feels like a game. I've also been trying to eat alot slower. That helps.  My coworker who hasn't seen me in a week said I was slimmer. That made me feel good! lol Tomorrow, I have 3 appointments. I have my weight management, my psych and my visit to my primary care. They recently changed my primary care doctor so I'm looking forward to meeting this new person. Tomorrow is a big deal for me. I promised my nutritionist that I'd lose 3 pounds the next time she saw me. (I don't know why I said that) She told me she believed me because of the determination in my voice. idk ya'll. This whole process is scary. I'm scared of starting over. Last month, I weighed 205.5 LETS SEE how much I weigh in at tomorrow. Send positive vibes ❤️
