August Sleevers..what Is The Progress



Recommended Posts

My surgery was August 17th. I did really well with everything i tried during the 2 liquid stages. During the soft food stage it seemed as though i am now unable to get eggs down. They make me sick, scrambled, omelets, cooked hard, hard boiled doesn't matter. toward the end soft food stage I got sick with a serious head cold.

Now that I am on the "full diet" I have had crab cakes, Baked chicken, tuna cakes, and a couple of veggies that went down well. On the other hand Turkey not so much. I did very well with shredded turkey made into turkey salad, but whole turkey breast or ground turkey do not settle well. In fact this evening I tried a turkey burger and threw up for the first time post op(not related to my super cold)

In an attempt to make sure i get all of my Protein in my daily intake goes like this

breakfast: Protein shake made with milk

Lunch: attempt to try something new solid food

Dinner: Protein Shake made with milk

My surgery was August 1st. I was 297 prior to surgery and 283 the day of. I am nearly 2 months post op and have been living off of 1/2 cup of low fat refried black Beans and Danon Greek yogurt. I do cook meals for my husband and I indulge myself to 1 spoonful of a taste and it satisfies me. My 2 month is 10/1 and I am looking forward to being able to eat real food instead of soft stuff.

Jeesiegurl, sounds like you are doing well. It is all about small portions and eating more frequently. Keep up the good work! Some days I eat more than others and sometimes I am hungry every 2 or 3 hours. I have lost 31 since 8/28/12, but 10pounds from 5 day preop diet.

Hi all! I am almost 2 months out (7 weeks- sleeved August 13th!) I am on two antiacids a day (PPI) for the acidity which on some days can be quite uncomfortable! I dropped 25 pounds in the 7 weeks but I started out a relatively low bmi (approx 36) I eat chicken (very soft), tuna, salmon. Tons of lentils and Beans, low fat cheeses, fish, and quinoa. However I have stalled for the past week. Did anyone experience this? Am I eating too many carbs? (Quinoa, crackers, some fruit) please help!!!

I was sleeved on aug. 20. I'm down 35lbs. I go to the gym 4 times a week. I'm able to do 45 min of cardio. And full body circuit training machines. I feel great!! I can pretty much eat anything, still have issues with some fruits. Like grapes.. But for the most part I can get and keep down most foods. ( healthy choice options of coarse ) and when it comes to Pasta or rice I eat maybe a half cup and I'm full. So my Tool the sleeve is working wonderfully. Breakfast- Cheerios with no fat milk, I like over the moon brand it taste like 2%. Or I'll make egg whites and cheese omelet with half a slice of wheat toast. 1/2 cup coffee sweetened with Splenda or tea with Splenda

Lunch: chicken caesar salad. About a cup of lettuce and 4 oz of chicken. Or a turkey and cheese with whole wheat wrap with sprouts and shredded carrots. Fat free ranch dressing

Dinner: fish, chicken, ground turkey basically any Protein with rice or potato and a side veg. Last night was baked cod, rice pilaf, and green Beans.

I have not got sick once, knock on wood. But I do feel when I'm full and stop before any discomfort. My NUT says I'm doing great and options are good as well as portion size. My response 4 weeks ago would of not been so happy I hated the liquid part and purée stages. But got thru it!!!!

Hope all my fellow August sleevers are doing well!!! And everyone else too!!!' :)
