All of my December sleevers...



Recommended Posts

I have a funny success story. Know the maxi dress night gowns at lane bryant? Well, I bought several of them last year because they are so comfortable around the house. Since losing weight, 61 pounds since surgery on Dec 3, they keep geeting longer and longer. My pants are getting longer because my booty is getting smaller. It's just cool to notice the little things like that. It speaks volumes in each individuals success along the way. Perhaps I should consider getting some new night gowns that aren't a tripping hazard, lol!

December sleevers are kicking butt!! My highest weight was 148 sleved 12/12 and now I am at 197. 51 pounds lost! I am 5ft 2inches. I would love to lose another 47-57 pounds.

My friend was sleeved April last year starting weight was 212 and she's now 119. I am praying and trying to have the same success that she did... but hey Im half way to 100. She had stalls and times of fast weight loss. It's great to see the success and to know the stalls are temporary! My birthday is the end of June... I have almost three months to lose at least 30 more pounds. I am nervous, scared and excited all in one.

This so funny because that's how I feel! My clothes are dragging and hitting the ground. The blouses that were busting are now so big that I wouldn't think of wearing them in public.

Sleeved 12/28/12

Pre diet 357

Day of surgery. 336' date=' -21

Today 302, -34

Total lost= 55lbs.

I'm 5'10.[/quote']

Wish i were that tall! i hate being short, but there's nothing I can do about it. To add insult to injury, I was 5'4" until i had children. I lost a 1/2" probably because of all the weight on my feet/arches flattening out...

I joke that about 20 of the 61 pounds that I lost was 100% ass, lol. I had a big 'ol ghetto booty. Now I'm getting closer to a cute booty! :)

I hit my 90 day mark the 5th and I am down 80 lbs. I just started biking and I know I need to get more active. I feel good' date=' but still having some issues with my food intake.

It seems I am at the toilet vomiting at least once or twice a day. It wears me out! Some foods I am ok with one time and the next they don't agree with my stomach.

I am 5'6 3/4" and my goal weight is 145. I am currently in between size 16 and 14. I was a size 22 about to bust into a 24. I am seeing the loss now when I put on clothes that are falling off that once were tight.

Sorry to hear about the vomiting. While I guess we were all told it could happen, I don't think it is typical at this stage of the game (with the sleeve). Stay well.

I think I have lost a lot in that particular region as well. I am short, so the weight made/makes me look like Mary Todd Lincoln....less ghetto and more just plain unattractive. i don't think I will get a cute butt out of this, but I will take less butt any day.

work out , drink your Protein, take your Vitamins, drink nothing but Water and crystal light, and stick to Soups and salads or veggie based meals. Read your labels!!

I workout, but you're right if I went back to a liquid diet (like right after surgery) I could lose 20 pounds a month (with veggies). I have the label reading down to a science, it is amazing how many label readers are out there - when I want to see a label someone before me has already turned the package in the store. Thanks for getting back to me. Continue with your Great Success!

I believe I will take my 6-8 pounds every two weeks over drinking my Protein. No offense. Sure, faster loss would be awesome but I want to live a somewhat normal life too. Keep up the good work.

What happened when you had orange? I haven't found anything that really disagrees with me. Kind of a bad thing. January and the beginning of February were different but I just eat way smaller portions now. I enjoyed some apple last night. I always have orange slice in my Water. Love it!

        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.
