Nov Sleevers... What's Your Status?



Recommended Posts

Ok everyone... I was sleeved on Nov 12th, and weighed 240.

My first week I lost 10 pds and my second another 10... Which was Awesome!!!

But since then "0" WTFudge is going on! :-(

This is my sample menu:

B: 1 EGG OR 5OZ Protein Shake

L: 4 SHRIMP OR 2OZ tuna

D: 2OZ SALMON OR 1/4 CRAB meat

SNACK: cheese STICK OR 5OZ Protein shake

I'm tracking my calories and I am under 300 - 350 max.

What is wrong???

Anyone else struggling???

Is this normal???

You've hit the dreaded week 3 stall. Hang in there, it'll pass!!! I was sleeved Nov of last year and now I look back and wonder why i got so freaked out about stalls. They are part of the process & there will be MANY more....focus on the positive things and try to enjoy the journey!!!!

:D

I had my surgery 11/6 and yes you are not alone. I am still trying to find the right formula, are you getting in all of your fluids? I think that's my problem, or at least I hope thats my issue

THANKS...

And Yes... I'm probably not getting enough :( It's hard because I just don't crave fluids that much... I think that I drink 1-2 16 oz bottles per day if I'm lucky :/

This no Water with meals... Or 30 mins before / 30 mins after really makes life a little complicated! :-P

You probably need more calories. I'm 4 weeks out and am eating between 700 and 800 calories.

I was sleeved on 11/20. And I have lost 32 pounds so far. I walk, walk, walk every day. I'm lucky to live very close to the beach. Walking on the sand is much more forgiving to my joints. I think what helps me is I get all my Protein in, all fluids and all Vitamins. I do still have a shake in the morning because it jump starts my protein intake for the day. And it seems to make me tolerate my vitamins so much better. But I do need to stop weighing myself everyday.

Hello all!

I was sleeved Nov 21 I'm 13 days out and according to my scale I've only lost 10lbs. Crossing fingers that when I go to ny appt Thursday its much more. I think my scale is not working or I'm doing something wrong. I drink 64oz of Water and get over 60 grams of Protein in. Am I a slow loser or what. Blah!

Hi, I was sleeved on Nov. 14, and will be week 3 tomorrow. I have stalled too. My nutritionist said to me this morning it is normal. Our bodies and hormones are going wacky right now. I need to drink more fluids, but have had a hard time due to nausea, but it is getting better. NOT going to the bathroom in 4 days doesn't help either, :wacko: but I started Mirilax so it should help as well. (sorry too much Info. lol ) My nurtritionist gave me a whole new list of foods I can try now too,which makes me so happy, I was starting to dread the mushy stuff daily. We will all have our ups and downs, and stalls, but just keep on plugging away and doing everything right and it will come off. :)

      So my surgery anniversary date is on the 24th of this month, but I had my 1-year follow up early with my surgeon this morning (I have another 1-year followup at the hospital on Monday to get my bloodwork and labs done).
      Anyhoo...my surgeon was very pleased with my results (and so where the office staff apparently, because 3 of the front desk ladies came by my exam room to give me props/high fives/generally gawk at me).
      But get this: he asked if I would be willing to come in for a future photoshoot so that I could be on a poster! And I was all, ummmm....no thanks, LOL.

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".
