Does Your Sleeve Have A Name?



Recommended Posts

I like the thread someone started about how we got our usernames because it is a kinda get to know you in a different sorta way. Then, I saw a poast where someone called their sleeve by name. So....that got me to thinking, what do you call your sleeve? I'm still preop and thus can't contribute but I'm interested to hear from those who have given their sleeve a name.

My sleeve is named Rex, and Rex is male. Rex is because he's been downsized from a T-Rex (big to little) and male because he doesn't like for me to eat chocolate. Only a man would deny a woman some chocolate! ;)

I so love that.....especially the chocolate part being the reason you chose a male name. That made me lol.

Rex didn't like sweets from day 1. Sometimes now he'll let me have some chocolate, but he usually balks after a couple of bites. If I have any, though, I count it as if I ate the whole thing on My Fitness Pal.

I have two names for mine. When it is in a good mood - it's Steve, the Sleeve. When it's grumbly, I refer to it as Grouch, the Pouch. (probably not the most original names.)

I'm dumb. I don't have my sleeve yet. That's what I call my tummy now. I saw you were "pre-op"and then misread.

I've seen people naming their bands, too. Always struck me as odd, but I'm not judging.

Just out of curiosity, do you guys have names for your other organs, or just your stomach?

Do you refer to it by name, like in 3rd person? E.g. "No thanks, I'm not hungry, Sleevie Wonder ate at 2..."?

      Hide and Seek? No....   If you have noticed, it’s been a little bit of stretch between posts. It’s not because I am not interested in blogging. I absolutely love sharing my journey with you.   You see, my world has changed! I now exercise every single morning with a 3 to 4-mile walk. I also now meal prep so I don’t fall into old habits.   I am also a bit hooked on closing my Apple Watch Fitness Rings! In fact, I am obsessed with doubling and tripling most of them.   So this does take up a lot of time and by the time you add work into the mix and family time, it becomes a shorter day.   Priorities are in order for me and I could not be happier.   So in the last week, I’ve been hitting goals that I never thought I would be able to hit again. I weigh myself on Sunday’s now. It’s just easier to do before I get dressed for church. It just feels good. I refuse to constantly get on the scale when I see everyday victories. Like getting back into clothes I never thought I could, or taking the time to just breathe and be grateful for the blessings I have in my life right now.   Continued on www.SabrinaGoddess.com

      6 Weeks Post Op!

      My world is drastically different! I now walk 3 to 4 miles a day and I’m constantly getting up to move my body! .

      I close my Apple Watch rings daily and about 4 to 6 days a week I double or triple them!

      I have been released to have all foods. When I reintroduce some I need to start at 1 ounce to see how “Tiny Tummy” likes it!

      I am not reintroducing sugars, coffee or junk! I did not pay close to $13,000 to fail! .

      I went to get follow up bloodwork done this week and my numbers are all in the perfect range! .

      This is my new world and I am happy it!

        I didn’t see it either but I wish I had now for both the battle on court & the ball tampering accusations flying around everywhere now.
