Maybe yo can tell me why some of people's post and the page post show up on my feeds. I have to keep saying hide them so they don't show.

You can see them on your newsfeed but nobody else can... I've checked with my husbands account and he can't see I'm part of the group :) hope this helps! However if some are not comfortable it's completely understandable...I just love all the great ideas and support :)

Sleeved 8/27/13...weight loss 38#. Seem to be stalled last couple weeks with a loss of 3#. I am worried I am doing something wrong. I am only able to get in an average of 500-600 calories...50gm protein/ day. I have occasional nausea/ no vomiting/ but do have pressure & some pain in my chest after eating or drinking. I feel drastically tired and drained which is probably dehydration as my H2O intake is hanging around 25 oz/ day. I cannot seem to get the meals, Protein Drinks & Water all in. Help!!

I was told that total water consumption is part of the Protein Shakes, Soups, crystal light etc. maybe you can try having more shakes and broths... Try 100% juice just small sips maybe to take away nausea and give you a lift. Are you exercising?

I hear ya. Sleeved two days after you and all the sudden I am a little nauseous and just can't get a lot of calories in. Like the post above me said, all the liquids are included in your 64oz total. I just keep telling myself to put one step in front of the other and keep on going. Good luck!

I was sleeved the day before you and I can't fit all the food and water either. The one thing I tried is drinking Skim Plus in my shakes. It has 11g of protein besides the protein in the powder...which is 25, for a total of 36g. Two shakes a day is 16oz and 72g of protein. This helps me w my protein numbers to be at least 80/day. I am never hungry so these shakes help a lot. I keep track of all my food on MyFitnessPal app. It scans foods too to make it easier for tracking. It keeps track of fluids as well which helps you track your 64oz. Hope this helps!

Hi August Sleevers! I haven't posted in a few weeks. Just checking in to see how everyone's doing and to update you all on my progress. I was sleeved on 8/21and I have lost a total of 29 lbs. so far. Although I feel great, I'm a little bummed that I have not lost more. I went in for my six week check up and the nurse said that my weight loss was kinda on the slow side. That was discouraging. Anyway, my bariatric doc said not to worry it will start coming off. I had an appointment with a metabolic doc around the same time and I have to get a ton of tests and then go back so that he can check all of my levels and my metabolism. All in all I'm happy I got the surgery. I would like to have lost more but slow and steady wins the race.

Hi August sleevers! I was sleeved on 8/19, and am doing great! My highest weight was around 305 on July 26, before I started the pre-op diet. I lost about 18-20 lbs while strictly following the pre-op diet, and am now down a little over 50 lbs. I go for a walk/run every morning at 6:30am for 2.5 miles, and my times are getting faster and faster! I need to start weight training too. I found that when my weight loss slowed, I needed to eat more (healthy) calories, and now my weight loss is at a faster clip! I weigh in on Monday mornings and Thursday mornings only, and usually lose about 2 lbs. each weigh in. My friends & family are super supportive and I feel wonderful in my clothes, and proud to be able to RUN, something I hadn't voluntarily done since they made me do that God-awful timed mile in high school. ;) Hope the rest of the August sleevers are doing well!

Hey I was sleeved 8/29 and only 20 pounds down so far. I was constantly beating up myself because I'm not losing weight or I can't get all the liquids and protein in and I realized it's not worth me losing sleep. Please do not be hard on yourself this is a process we can get through this its hard especially when you're working,healing, ql be wf e a and taking care of family and really getting back to your life. We cannot focus on our weight day in and day out otherwise we would become crazy which I feel like I have been through this process.I wish you the best and you losing weight and I know that I am proud of you for losing over 30 pounds. We don't want to lose too fast then we will come up with other things to complain about....we have to rock our journeys!!!

Checking in...surgery date 8/27, so I am almost 6 weeks out. My doctor cleared me to start soft foods at 2 weeks and I hit a stall that has last almost 4 weeks now! When I started this journey I was at 265. I weighed 247 before my surgery and now at 233. That's only 14 lbs in 6 weeks :( I am trying my best to not get discouraged. I have lost about 3" in my waist, 4" in my abdomen area and losing in my thighs too. I exercise daily but I have had a hard time getting my liquids in. I am doing better with the Protein amounts but I think that is some of my problem. I am really focusing on the protein and Water intake and hopefully that will kick in the weight loss. :)

      I hate these Lovenox shots.  That is all! LOL
      Feeling like a pin cushion.
      I know they are needed and it's only 10 days worth but I really hate giving myself shots. It's one of the reasons I want to be healthy because diabetes runs in my family

      Yas, I am HOME! Traveling back home was interesting but I made it.
      For the first time in my flying life we had NO drink service due to the turbulence! It was crazy. I had to call the steward to bring me water. You CAN NOT let yourself get behind on drinking! That would be dangerous.

        yeahhhhhh we are only 3 months apart on the sleeve journey. I found it has been way easier to lose with the sleeve than it was with the band...... although i loved my band. Sleeve was the easiest SX i ever had too.....

      5. SabrinaGoddess

        @bayougirlmrss I was told this is the fastest weight loss surgery, but I am not really looking for extremely fast. I want it to be healthy. This is our new tool and we can use it wisely for sure. Are you taking your biotin and vitamins?

      TOMORROW IS MY DAY! (note this did not post properly so I am still  posting it after the fact)
      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.

      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?

        Hit 42degress last weekend but this week has been in the rather pleasant low 30s (relatively of course😜). Could still wear jeans but thank goodness for air conditioning. Worse is the drought. Everything is dying or dead. Very sad & depressing.

      4. ms.sss

        I feel ya.
