Any husband and wife sleevers?



Recommended Posts

How are the husband/wife sleevers doing? Updates please! Here's ours : My husband is a beast. He has lost 75 pounds (including preop) and is under 300 for the first time in years. I just hit my first goal as of this morning - 50 lbs down.(including preop) and and in the 250s :) Surgery date August 3rd

Hi there! Our surgery was August 2nd. My husband has lost 42 lbs and I've lost 32 lbs and am in Onderland. So glad he agreed to do it with me.

Curious how you guys are doing. My husband is averaging almost 5 lbs a week! I'm chugging along at 3.2 lbs/week. I can see he will get to goal much faster than me although we both had almost the same amount to lose. He doesn't monitor anything either by the way. Eats Protein but there are a lot or Popsicles and whatnot going on with him, albeit sugar free, and it doesn't seem to be stopping his weight loss at all. I on the other hand monitor the crap out of everything. Seems a lot easier for him. Men! :)

He looks so good, and is so happy. Wonderful to see him go through this journey with me.

My husband was sleeved 5 weeks before me. I was sleeved on 7/18. As of today, he's lost 73 lbs. I am down 62 lbs. We seem to be losing at a similar pace. But for us, the weight loss is a happy by-product of our reasons for the surgery. After 10 years on Metformin, neither one of us is diabetic. No more high blood pressure. My kidney function is almost normal. Pre-surgery, I was looking at a second kidney biopsy.

Time will pass. Weight will come off. Our goal is healthy living. The scale will take care of itself.

Great attitude! My husband is off metformin for pre-diabetes, no more high blood pressure meds and no more high cholesterol meds. I feel so relieved knowing he's healthier. For me, I wasn't on any of those meds, but my thyroid dose was lowered, and I seem to be able to keep my joint inflammation somewhat in check and am able to exercise a little more so I'm very happy about that.

My hubs and I were sleeved 9/30.... Although we're only a few days out... It was awesome doing it together, although our journey has just begun! We were very lucky- we even got to share a room in the hospital, we I think put both of us more at ease!

        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.
