November 2012 sleevers how are you doing ?



Recommended Posts

Sleeved on Election Day (Nov. 6th). 322 before per-op diet, 313 on day of surgery, and 258 as of yesterday. 64 lbs total and damn proud! This is the best I've felt in many, many years. Granted, it's been a tough journey. I describe the experience to my friends one sentence; The most strict diet I've ever been on combined with a major surgery that kicked my a**! But as most would agree, I'd do it all in a minute. Things I can do now that I couldn't a couple months ago:

Fit in a seat on an air plane without having to use a seat belt extension.

Fit in a booth at a restaurant.

Sex....ohhhhh boy. I'll save it for the man room.

Sit up from a laying position without looking like a turtle on its shell.

Tie my shoes while they're still on my feet.

Look at myself in the mirror (still not all that pretty to look at, but getting better!)

Pass a Wendy's without ordering 2 spicy chicken combos.

Find clothes that fit me at places like Kohles and Target.

Walk for quite a distance without getting those sores on my inner thighs (they're gone completely!).

sleep without my C-pap machine.

Give someone a good hug.

Smile when I think of my future!

Life is good!

I was sleeved on the 14th and I have lost 39 pounds so far...I have too like so many of my other November sleevers have not started to work out. I did plan in starting this week so I guess a have a few more days to get it together but I definitely will be doing something next week no excuses. I also think I'm in a stall period this is my longest one haven't lost in like 6 days ( is this considered a stall?) So proud of all of your accomplishments November sleevers keep up the good work!!!

Sleeved on 11/20 down 32 lbs. haven't started exercising yet either. I have 2 stalls also. I have quit weighing so often that helps I was getting upset with weighing daily with the ups and downs on scale when eating so little I thought weight would be falling off! ! It was hard through the holidays but I stayed on track eating!

I don't know how much exercise I can do I have such bad knees can't stand without a walker! I am going to try chair exercise. Anyone else have this problem?

My nutritionist said that exercise, while healthy and necessary, won't really increase your weight loss. It is more for maintaining. The majority of our loss will come from our bodies using our fat stores for calories. (that of course depends on what kind of deficit we create with our food intake).

About 750 per day . I drink all my Water and Protein intake good! How long do stalls last?

      My 3 babies and my little "niece". Took on a babysitting job this past weekend. She is super tiny compared to my 3 biggies. Sitting on command for treat-os!
       
      Pre-op Liquid - Day 2 
      It was very hard today...I'm feeling some type of way from not eating the meals I was supposed to before the pre-op diet. My sister got stuck in Dallas a week before my diet and we were supposed to go on a nice dinner, but that never happened. I have super bad dry mouth and bathroom breaks are more frequent.

      Pre-op Liquid Diet - Day 1
      Had my morning cup of 8 oz Regular Orange Juice. I am ready!!! I did have 3 bites of my fiance's cheesecake last night for dinner. It was so yummy but with my former sleeve it didn't allow me any more bites.
