Sleeved 7-1.

Started 299

Surgery day 282

Current 245.

55lbs gone.

Remember the BMI and inches and feeling good are the most important. Bigger folks loose lots of pounds but as a % of body weight might not be as high of a % loss as someone who started lighter.

Keep up the great work everyone.

Hi everyone!

I was sleeved on 7/29 and am down 17lbs since day of surgery! 26lbs total since I started the pre-op diet. I know everyone loses differently and I think we are all doing really well. This is not a diet , it's a lifestyle change, our bodies need time to get used to it!!

Ok can someone please tell me how a person who has had a vsg sugery GAINS 4 lbs since yesterday?? I'm so mad right now I could scream. It's not my period because I've had a uterine ablation done a couple years ago. I dnt know what I'm doing wrong. I just wanna give up and run to the fridge but I can't. So that depresses me more. I can't win :(

July 22. Lost 32 pre-op and 12 post-op. I guess i was hoping for more post, but I'll take it. I am an older (68) sleever and have about 60 more to lose. My surgeon said older and less to lose can mean a slower loss. Trying to be happy that its going down and not up.

Hello,

I had an ablation as well. Best thing ever, by the way.

Even though we do not have an actual period, the inner parts are all there and functioning. Your hormones and body are still going to throw you for a loop here and there on a monthly basis. This is why we did not go into menopause.

Don't freak out day to day. Remember this is a marathon not a race.

Hey all,

I was sleeved 7/19. As of my last weigh in last week, I am down 14 pounds since surgery, and 35 pounds overall. I went from a BMI of 50.2 to 45.0. I was feeling bloatedand awful for a couple of weeks and had very slow weight loss those 2. I feel like I am losing again but am thinking about stayingaway from the scaleb/c I'm feeling good again and the scale can make that go away if the numbers don't seem good.

I have been eating 3 meals/ dayof 3-4 tablespoons each. I have had 2 Protein shakes in between meals and 1/2a bottle of ready-to-drink Isopure each day. I'm averaging 80g Protein and about 750 calories/day.

Sample meals: Cottage cheese w/ 1/2 pureed fruit pouch, ricotta cheese with splenda and cinnamon, pureed chicken with a veggie in it, refried Beans and ground chicken mixed together, baked tialpia, etc. I also have had eggs with no problems.

I really just started working out again too.

Hi guys I was sleeved on the 25th and down 28 pounds, I had no pre op diet. I don't even count my calories I just eat what I can, on a soft diet now...learning how to eat slow...my body is teaching me with pain and discomfort. I just wanna say I think all you guys are doing great we are losing, some slow. Some quick, but its going bye bye, and not likely to return..yay

I'm so sorry this is going on. Try looking at your salt intake or take a week back on your preop diet. You may just be retaining Water. Also if your working out you could be building muscle and that weighs more !!! Don't get discouraged just push forward it will come off again and probably Double!!! Stay positive!!!

      2 Days Till Surgery!   It's time! Time to start my clear liquids! I am prepared! Tomorrow I will only take in clear protein, bone broth and jello for the next two days.   My surgery will be done on Monday, December 9th at 8:00 AM. I have to be at the hospital at 5:30 AM (EWWW) but who cares? LOL. Funny how you don't get all upset about doing things that are not so fun when you are doing it for a purpose! . I don't plan on doing much this weekend. I have one errand to do and after that is over I will return to my hotel room and go into prayer and meditation. Believer or not, you got to do what you need to do in order to get your heart and mind in a healthy place. . I have a Pre-Op drink I ordered that is supposed to really help your body hydrate before surgery. It's not in the photo just because I don't have it in my hands yet. I will put photos of it up when I get it. . All I can think about it how blessed I am to be able to get this done. I know how it feels to be healthy and happy then have it snatched away. It makes this all the more joyful for me. . So, it's time to lay it down and start letting my mind process what we are getting ready to do. . By the way...funny story. My doc said he had to cancel a surgery because his patient said she thought "Mashed Potatoes" was a clear food! Um, there will be no mashed potatoes for me! LOL This is HAPPENING! . Last thought for today: I knew when they drew my blood yesterday it was going to leave a nasty bruise and I was right. I am so sensitive to that kind of stuff.

      Cold no.2 since surgery. The funny part is now Ive lost my voice. I feel better in my sinuses now, but my voice is 90% gone. Losing your voice as a person who talks as a teacher for a living is so funny. You feel normal and when you speak, nothing comes out. I hope it goes over by Monday, but if it doesn't oh well. Ill be at school and cant talk to the students. Oh gee darn.

        I hope it gets better. I sing and I know how it is to lose your voice. I always get scared that it won't come back. LOL but it always does. Try Fisherman's Friend. It's nasty but it works. You can find it on amazon.

        Ohh..I love fisherman's friend..especially the sugar-free ones. Here, we can get it in all the shops. They are strong though.

      Got my haircut today and its always amazing how much better i feel afterwards.
      i have always considered it an odd thing that i enjoy a haircut so much.
      The smell of the barbershop (no salons allowed) and the whole scissors and clippers feel and sound is so relaxing.
      I have had the same barber since 1987 and i am not sure how i will handle it if that guy ever dares to die on me. I am pretty sure that the magazines on the bottom of the stack are the same ones from my first visit.
      just started Ron Powers -Mark Twain Biography- enjoying it
