feb 2013 sleevers weigh in



Recommended Posts

Today I am 3 months out, I was sleeved on Valentine's day and I am down 68lbs. I am about 3 pounds past my half way to goal mark.

I think we are all doing amazing!!

I don't know if many of you realize this' date=' but we are all making approximately the same progress. Most of us in this thread were sleeved the latter part of February and are approx 50 lbs lighter. It doesn't matter which week you lose the weight (What I call "stall panic"), as long as it keeps coming off![/quote']

True.

Sleeved 2/19 and a total of 56lbs down. I have hit my second stall which has lasted two weeks after losing 4-6lbs weekly. I get a bit frustrated since I have not deviated from the plan. I don't expect to lose as quickly as someone in their 20s or 30s but c'mon!

Track ur weight on a graph that way when u stall u will see the pattern and know its nothing u r doing just ur body adjusting so that weight lose can continue. Good luck

I noticed just about everyone here has lost at least 50lbs except me. I am doing everything I'm supposed to and excercising 3 times per week (Mostly weights). Does anyone know why I am not losing as much as everyone else who got the surgery around the same time?

What did u weigh when u got the surgery? Start there because those who r smaller will lose slower and r gonna lose less than someone my size who started at 308. Also ur working out which translates to muscle building thus smaller number cause muscle outweighs fat and so u may lose less on the number side but gain more muscle. Look at ur body tone and measurements before u feel bad.

I haven't lost 50lbs haven't even got to 30 yet. While its discouraging at times I'm going to keep trucking on.

I also workout 3days a week. Sunday is zumba for an hour, the treadmill and elliptical for 20 minutes each. The other 2 days I do 45 minutes on the treadmill and 30 on the eliptical. I do some strength training my trainer taught me every night at home and when I go to the gym.

I eat 800 -1200 calories in a day, drink my Protein and my Water.

On the plus side I am easily down 2 sizes I tell my kids the fat is shifting. Lol

For me there is no truth to larger people loose faster, I weighed 320 @ surgery and I'm losing at a snails pace.

I figure we are all different and will loose different.

There is some truth to heavier people lose faster, because they have a higher base metabolic rate (BMR). This is a generalization, however - everyone is different. I had my 3 month follow up today and they weighed me on the body analyzer scale. Since 1 year ago, I've lost 91 lbs of fat, 110 lbs total. My BMR has gone down over 400 Calories per day since then, which means I'd have to eat 400 calories a day less now to lose at the rate I did a year ago.

Everyone here has NOT lost at least 50 lbs. However when others post huge numbers or make blanket statements to that effect, it intimidates many other "slower" losers from posting. I am very happy with my loss; I average about 2 lbs/week.

I saw the post where someone says that, but in following others' trackers and another thread that I started called Slow Losers Unite, I don't think the 50-lb statement holds true for everyone sleeved in Feb. I had my surgery in early Feb and I'm at about 38 pounds down, which is the fastest I have ever lost weight in my life (I am hypothyroid, to start). I feel we should try to only compare our loss to ourselves and not others, even though it's very difficult.

      I had surgery on September 27th and I am one of the very blessed ones that have had no pain to speak of besides a couple days of gas pain. I have lost 9 lb since surgery, and I am feeling a little like I should have lost more by now. Is that realistic? Or am I being too fussy?

        Are you on meds for reflux? If not you should be at this point. If you are already on reflux meds get in touch with your surgeon asap as this is not normal. If fact i would be getting in touch with the surgeon either way. I hope your issue is resolved and you feel better soon

      Tomorrow is the big day! Getting sleeved in the morning and possibly spending a dark and stormy night in the hospital after. I'm actually excited about that because rain on wedding days and birthdays is considered a sign of good luck- so wouldn't a commitment of re-birth qualify as well?
      Can't wait to see y'all on the other side!

      Hope everyone's doing ok so far.
      Incidence numbers are on the raise again and hospitals need to treat more COVID patients again. Looking with some kind of dread towards autumn/winter season.
