August Sleevers?! Where Ya's At?



Recommended Posts

Sleeved on Aug 28! I have lost 24 pounds since surgery. Post op I lost 23 so that's 47 lbs total :) I have had some nausea this week for some reason, but I am now off puréed foods so maybe my body is just adjusting. Hoping that's the reason! Other than that I am feeling really good. Already dropped a jean size. I will be going shopping in another month to buy some new clothes! Can't wait til then :)

Hi All. My surgery was 8/28 and I've lost 20 lbs since surgery. I had lost 20 before so down 40. I feel pretty good and getting 70-80 grams of Protein per day. Can eat about 2 oz of fish or chicken at a meal but having hard time getting enough calories. Doc wants me to get to 1200 and I really have to push it to get 900 calories. How are others doing with getting calories in and what works to get more? Don't want my body in starvation mode and stalling weight loss... Never thought I would have hard time getting enough calories!

I was sleeved on 14 August and have lost 18kgs (approx 40 pounds) even with a couple of annoying stalls along the way. The best thing I could have done, but still taking a bit of getting used to having to slow down and eat less.

Interesting. I have my 6 week office visit next week. I haven't been given a calorie count just protein gram requirement & no sugar. I have trouble getting in 500 calories.

WOW....that's the first time I've heard 1200 calories! My eating plan says 700-900 calories per day with a minimum of 60 grams of protein per day. I have gotten in 1,000 calories about three times and 1,200 one time but I would NEVER be able to get to that calorie count without my Protein Shake each morning. Best to you on your journey!

      It's Saturday!!! My fiance and I are out doing yard work and I made the mistake of not staying hydrated before going out so now my body is shaking and weak. I have my pre-op appointment Tuesday, the 2nd and I am trying my hardest to lose another 2 lbs by then.

        You got this!! When I had the sleeve I cried every day during the liquid phase, It was during the super-bowl! I was sooo hungry I sucked on a piece of pork rind. LOL
