Hi, finally got sleeved.... Had to get a Vena Cava Filter put in Thur. 12/27/12, because of my history with blood clots. Had the Sleeve surgery Fri. 12/28/12. All went as planned. Thank You Dr.Greelee (St.Joe East, Lexington Kentucky). Released from hospital on Sat. 12/29/12, now ready to commit to my new way of life. My weight when I started this process was 308, after low carbs and Protein Drinks my pre-op weight is 298, my goal is to get down to 200.

Hey there! I also had my sleeve on 12/28. Glad to hear your optimism! I am having a really hard time with my " fat brain". That's what I call it at least. I think about the food I want to be eating A LOT! I hope it gets better. I am down 14 lbs since surgery though. That's a nice feeling. Please keep in touch. I would love to hear how your progress goes!

Well here we are again, seem to be averaging 2lbs. Loss per week, Doc says he's happy with that so I guess I am too, I just thought it would be faster. Not having any problems so that's a plus. Going to walk more and try to be more active and see if that helps weight come off faster. I know it didn't get put on over night so I shouldn't expect it to come off over night.

I think I have that same voice in my head, I got sleeved on 1/28 and the first couple days were the worst, I seem to be beating the voice in my head down though cause its getting easier every day!! :-)

Hey, trust me it well get better, you need to tell your "fat brain" to get out of your head and let your "thin brain" take over. Just keep telling yourself you can do it, take it one day at a time, one pound at a time and before you know it your the skinny guy in the room... At least that's what my support team keep telling me. I know when I have put on a pair of jeans that I haven't been able to wear for a long time, and they fit, something is working.... So stay positive....

Update, as of March 11, I weighed in at the YMCA @ 266. So I lost a total of 42 lbs. YEAHHHHH. I won't lie, I'm very happy about that..... I fitting into things I haven't worn in many many years.... I probably could be losing at a quicker rate if I listened more to the dietitian and ate only the way she wants everyone to eat. But after having a few talks with my primary Doctor, his take on everything was as long as your losing and keeping active, use what the dietitian says as a guide rather than as a law. He said he felt that if you feel like your starving yourself sooner or later you would probably fall back into old bad habits and this surgery is just a tool to help you, not a magic trick to make you skinny. You have to teach yourself to do the work... so train yourself that almost anything can be ok, if in moderation and your willing to do extra to work it off. Now that doesn't mean I can sit down at dinner and eat pizza till I'm stuffed, but if I wanted to eat a piece of pizza I can, if I willing to work a little harder at the gym tomorrow. So far this plan has been working for me, I'm not saying it's for everyone. Till next time I hope everyone keeps making smaller shadows.....

      I'm checked into the hotel near the hospital and just had my last protein shake of the day. My mom has kindly gone down to the restaurant alone so as not to make me die from watching her eat dinner. Checking in at the hospital tomorrow at 10:50am. So ready!

      Six months pots-op as of yesterday. I celebrated with a HIIT class where I was challenged to do a wall-assisted handstand. I truly thought there's no way in hell that I can get up there. Well... I proved myself wrong. The instructor said, "Just try getting one foot up there." I tried and it was so easy, that the other foot went up, and the next thing that I knew, I was standing on my hands with my legs up in the air, leaning against the wall.
      Last weekend I challenged myself to a 10-mile hike, and I was SURE that my legs would be non-functional that night and the next day. But that didn't happen at all.  But I did learn that I need a new hiking boot or shoe. I've got a goal of walking the Portuguese coastal route of the El Camino later this year, and I good shoes will be essential.
      I've hit another weight loss stall, but that's to be expected. I am so close to my goal already that if it does take 6 more months to get that last stone off, that's okay with me. And I am building muscle, so that stone may never move. S'alright friends, s'alright.
