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!!!

      Today I said I’m an XS or size 8 (Aust) at a clothing store. I never thought I’d say those words and say them with confidence. And when I commented a dress was too big on me I was told it was the smallest size. As was the belt I wanted. 
       
      I tried on a slim fitting singlet dress yesterday & was shocked to realise the lumpy bits on the dress were my hip bones. I have an hour glass shape so I always had hips but never ones that stuck out on the front of my body! 

      I’ve been a size 10 before - for about 5 minutes. While I am now confident about saying I’m an 8, clothes shopping is all still a bit freaky for me. It’s not that I’m focussed on the size on the label. I’m well aware the cut/line of the clothes and the designer’s style will dictate what size I need or if it will suit my body shape. The size is the starting point & it’s starting at an 8/XS/38 which is a big mind set change. It’s thinking a pair of pants will be too small & discovering they are almost too big. 

      While I’m still coming to terms with my actual new body shape and size, I’m very happy to be in this new reality.

        ...ah! I see you are from Brisbane! We lived there for a year when Mr. got a work contract there.

        I have fond (and not-so-fond, lol) memories of the weather there this time of year. It it crazy hot yet?

      Meal replacement shakes are soooooo good when you have a sore throat and don't feel good enough to cook. Plus, I always have lots of them at home. So I'm not tempted to grab crap from McDonalds (which has the best cold "medication").

      This morning I had an abdominal ultra sound because apparently my cholesterol keeps rising.
      I don’t get it. My cholesterol was always fine & now when I eat less of everything & have lost weight it starts to go up.

      My intake of fats & oils has decreased (not that I was a big fried food person before anyway) & not just because I eat way less. Always cut the fat of meats, still don’t eat bacon, use spray olive oil instead of regular oil. Even the tub of butter in my fridge has been there since before May. Lol.
      I just don’t get it? Is it because I don’t eat anywhere near the amount of vegetables I ate before? It surely can’t be because I eat a piece of cheese every day which I didn’t before? Are all my hormones screwed up? 
      Sigh!

        Cholesterol seems to be odd that way. I've got a suuuuper skinny brother-in-law who has sky high cholesterol. So don't let the whole "overweight" thing fool you. They seem to find it in people who have the genetic predispositions for it nowadays it seems. Our bodies are really still a mystery of how they react to certain changes. Just keep at it and keep talking to your doctor. Who knows, you could be a medical mystery?!? Embrace the challenge.

        Think of it this way, you now have an excuse to try ostrich meat! http://safariostrich.co.za/2016/06/ostrich-meat-benefits/

        PS. Gah hormones!

      2. Arabesque

        My dietician thinks it may be the regulatory hormones too & that my liver & gall could be having a freak out from the weight loss. It may be causing my low BP too. Hopefully the abdominal ultra sound will show something when I get the results.
        My maternal grandmother had issues which developed in her 70s but she’s the only one. No heart probs, no cholesterol worries in any one else (incl 13 aunts & uncles & my parents) - cancer seems to be our worry - sad face. And they still live into the 80s & 90s.
        Just strange that for 53 yrs my levels have been normal & 6months of weight loss & it’s now high.
        Don’t know about eating ostrich though that could just be burying my head in the sand - tee hee hee.

        PS - My menopausal symptoms are still MRI. Even with a 42.5 degree day (108F) last Friday not a twinge of a hot flush. Best non scale victory ever. Guess you win some hormonal battles but lose others.

        PPS - Wrapping Christmas presents with air con cranked up today even though it’s only 33C. Ho ho ho

      TOMORROW IS MY DAY!
      I am so very excited! My sister is here with me and my son. I am so excited. My anesthesiologist called me tonight to discuss our plans for tomorrow. I am not feeling nervous at all. Just excited for the future!
      I did buy a few bottles of CFpreop which is really suppose to help you stay hydrated. It's pricey but I feel it's worth it. I tried the Watermelon tonight. I have to stop all liquids after midnight and I go into the hospital at 5:30am for check in. My surgery is at 8am.
      SO HAPPY for this journey!
      You can get the CFpreop on Amazon if anyone is interested. It comes in Watermelon and White Grape.
