8/6/1

Starting 218

Current 168

Protein shake or bars and a lot of chicken. eggs. Greek yogurt out my ears. Don't count calories only Protein. I get about 60/day.

Was at gym 3-4 days week but not last two weeks.

Not hungry but "hand to mouth" is bad especially during PMS.

Physically great. Sizes go down faster than weight which is weird but so much more stamina.

Emotionally find myself reminiscing about my love affair with carbs but then remember why I broke up with him.

Just want to add that my sex life is now incredible!

I stopped exercising when I went on a trip about a month ago. I need to get back on track ASAP!

I eat anything and everything, Protein first, I don't eat bread, rice, patatoes, Pasta or corn.

I'm slacking on my Water. I need to get that back on track also.

I feel good and I am very glad that I chose the sleeve.

Date sleeved: 8/28/12

Start weight: 375

Weight today: 336

What you eating and how much daily: 700 calories. 60-80g Protein.< /p>

Breakfast: Fage Greek Yogurt

Lunch: Premiere Protein Shake

Dinner: Usually tuna, chicken or shrimp

Snacks: Light cheese, Turkey pepperoni, Hard boiled egg

Daily work out: Exercise is my struggle! I finally started working out with a trainer 2x a week for the last two weeks, but I haven't done much else besides that. Everyday I try to convince myself to get some cardio in, but it rarely happens other than the trainer sessions. Help! Advice?

How hungry are you?: Only when I go way too long between meals.

How you feel physically: Better, but still a long way to go.

How you feel emotionally: I moved to a new city where I know NO one just before my surgery. I'll be flying back home for Christmas and I feel anxious to see family/friends. For the few I've told, I'm nervous about their expectations on how much weight I've lost. For the ones that I haven't told, I'm

nervous about them finding out - I just feel the need to keep it private to avoid judgement.

Are you glad you chose the sleeve?: Yes! My only regret is not doing it years ago.

Anything extra to say?:

40 pounds in 2.5 months - do you all think this is average or am I behind the mark? I'm worried

that my lack of exercise is really putting me behind.

Start weight: May 253

Date of sleeve: 8/21

Today's weight: 209

Eating low carb (20 or less). Unlimited cal/fat. Protein 60plus.

Don't work out yet. Not cleared. Have auto-immune issues. Had gallbladder out last week' date=' 7 weeks postop.

I get hungry every 3-4 hours. I love it! All i have to do is eat something small & I'm good to go. Pre-sur I was never really hungry & would pig out at nite. This reminds me to eat!

Tired. But not because of the sleeve or lack of pro or Vit. Other health issues.

Emotionally good. I could NEVER have kept this weight off by myself. I'm a slow loser but NUT and I think we've figured out that i'm very carb sensitive.

Yes, very glad.[/quote']

I thought that this thread would be fun to revive!

Today's weight is 198. I'm a slow loser and have been in a stall for 6 weeks, but I'm totally ok w it. It'll drop when it's ready.

Still eating low carb. Between 20-40.

NUT upped my fat & calorie at 4 months. Fat is 60+, Protein 60-100, cal 1275.

I was finally cleared to exercise and I do Water aerobics 3x a week. Love it!

Still eating every 3 hours. My only issue is my laziness comes back often and it's so much easier for me to grab a Protein Bar than eat real food. I'm working on that.

My tiredness is gone. I feel great. AND my auto-immune diseases (5, primary RA TYPE 2) has gone into remission! Docs are shocked!

Even though i've 'only' lost 54 pounds, I'm happy. I feel good, I look good & I enjoy life. I fully expect to get to my goal of 140-150, just at my own pace, not by when a calendar or peer pressure tells me. :-)

What a great outlook you have, it is sad that it is so hard to find these days, too many people, including myself sometimes want that instant gratification. When I read this it really reminds me that this a life long process and I'm grateful that I have a tool that is going to help me better my life! Thanks Doxie!

Awww,,,, <blush>...... Thanks for the compliments! Instant gratification is wonderful, but I've learned through many yo-yo diets that it might be gratifying, but it's never long lasting.

Hi all my August Sleevers Family

I totally feel like I am a slow loser but I don't want to complain because I am totally loving the sleeve. I was on pre-op diet 8/13 weight was 316 sleeved on 8/27 weight was 302. Today's weight was 256. So since pre-op I have lost 60 pounds. Slowing losing or not I will take it I would have never been able to lose it on my own with out my sleeve:)

      My name is Jose and I am from the UK, I had a gastric bypass a month ago so I am at the beginning of my weight loss journey.
      I would like to know how many calories I should be eating a day to stay healthy, thank you for your time

        Hello Joset, why haven't you been given a diet plan? Did you have your surgery in the UK? Every surgeon has a different diet, and no two people are on the same one. Weird I know. Contact your team if you can

        Mine was two weeks clear liquids

        Two weeks on soups, milk shakes and broths all with out lumps

        two weeks on pureed foods { I couldn't stomach this step }

        two weeks on soft foods like Protein yogurt, stewed mince and veg, soft scrambled eggs. Pate on hard crackers

        Then onto any food I fancied. If you struggle on any step or with any foods go back a step for a few days. Eggs, salmon and chicken are hard for beginners.

        Sorry I missed your original post, hope you are still on here.
