Checking in on my fellow August sleevers. Running into the frustration of being finished before anyone else at the table.

I am having the same problem. Socializing over a meal used to be one of my faves. It can be a bit frustrating taking a couple of bites and realizing that you need to take a doggie bag when everyone else is just getting started.

60 grams is the goal my program requires... But exercising is what's helping me.

When I do cardio I eat some form of good carbs as I found since I did that I've lost better.. And by good carbs I mean oatmeal or quinoa.

I can't guarantee that will work for you. I can only say what works for me.

Plus I'm not sure what your program requirements are.. As everyone's are different. Mine allows carbs if they are on the " good carb list"

I don't eat a lot of it but I do add some on cardio days.

went to the doc yesterday for 3 month follow up. He wants us to be a 30% of excess lost...I was at 44%!!! Whoop!

He wants us at 60-65% at 6 months...I hope that now that I am exercising (training for a mini triathlon in August of next year to Celebrate being a year out) that my % will be higher. I am down 37lbs since surgery and 53.2 since preop. sleeved 8/12.

Hi August slevers..

I was sleeved August 4th weight of 215 did really well with surgery no pain killers drink my liquids with no problem. I really had a huge problem with Protein shakes was not able to hold them down so i started Soups and purees before time. I would puke at least once a day everyday and very low weight loss only 8 lbs in in 6 weeks. Had an appointment with my NUT that was a great thing. She told me reason my weight loss was so slow i was not eating enough Protein. Truth and behold have lost 3lbs in three days. I now feel much better everyone else i know has lost 20 to 25 lbs. hopefully I can get on track with keeping my protein intake high.

Good luck fellow sleevers....

I notice the same. When I don't get enough cals and Proteins I don't lose. When I up them both I'm averaging 1lb a day.

Hi i was sleeved August 18th and at this point I'm feeling great. Life has never been better lost 32lbs with the stall but took in more calories as myfitnesspal suggested and started losing again between 3 to 4lbs a week and inches. Im so happy with the way things are going if i hit a stall again i wouldn't mind. Because it gives my body time to catch up with the lose skin which i wont have much. Hw 278 cw 245.5. Good luck and keep in touch

      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?

      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
