December 2013 Sleevers Come In!



Recommended Posts

Just got my surgery time. Tomorrow at 1:30 is show time. Down 30 pounds on 3-week pre op diet and ready to do this ... I think.

I saw on previous entries that both pre-op and post-op patients are having trouble finding a Protein Drink they like or can tolerate. I found nectar by Syntrax on line that I like very much. They have 23 grams of Protein and 25 calories in 8 ozs, and they are a thin drink ( like Skim milk) that are tart and very tasty. They also make a few flavors that are sweet. I really like their lemond-aid, Twisted cherry, very grape, and apple flavors. I still have a few flavors to try yet. What's nice is that they have a group of sample packs you can order for about twenty dollars. I think 10 different flavors come in the sample pack so you can try, then you can order your favorite in a bulk. I also found Chike on line. It's more of a Meal Replacement with high protein 28 grams per 8 ozs. Chike comes in 5 flavors, and banana and chocolate are my favorites so far. They have sample packs also. So look them up and see what you think. I just ordered more of both so I would have them after my surgery on 12-18-13. Hope the info helps.

So I bought a container of the Nectar from my surgeons office gives, I got the caribbean cooler flavor. OMG that stuff was a Hot MESS! It was so nasty to me. and the smell, I gagged everytime I put it up to my mouth.

I also thought Caribbean cooler was terrible. Way to sweet for me. I prefer the tart flavors also.

Well it seems like a long way off, then the next minute I think "What the Hell was I thinking.". Then I remember that change is good, and my life after will be so much better. I can honestly say the pro-op diet has kicked my butt. Lots of gas and diarrhea. LOL. I just taking this one day at a time. Glad to know others are along for the ride with me on the 18th though

I'm a December 3rd sleever and I probably could have easily went back to work today, but I took two weeks off and plan to use it. Although I feel great I do think I would be exhausted working all day at this point. Good luck to those going back to the grind this week!

I feel good enough to go back but I'm not..lol. Two of my employees called me earlier today to see if I was coming back early, I said no way..see ya next week. I'm taking two full weeks off because I've been working like a mad woman all year and I haven't had a real vacation since last January. I'll go back next Monday, or may pop on Sunday for a few hours to see how things are going and to clear my desk of anything just so I can walk in to peace and quiet Monday morning.,

If you're having trouble getting your protein in..try shifting to protein shots. Add to Water and a sugar free mix...I get in 42 grams of my required protein just by adding one to crystal light and water.

I feel like I could have gone back to work today but thankfully I took 3 weeks off. I have been working like crazy lately and I wanted to give myself plenty of time to heal ( and maybe get my Xmas shopping done...lol).

I'm a Dec 3 sleever so this is day 6 for me. Today has been the best day so far but I still have pain and doubt I could manage a whole day sitting up at work. I have to lay back to get the pressure off my sutures. So I worked from home. Side note IVE LOST 13 POUNDS in 6 DAYS!!! Dec 3 I was 230 today 217 :D

Hi all, a question for the pre-op dieters or this month's sleevers. Have any of you NOT lost any weight on pre-op, or lost very minimally? Going on day three here and gained two pounds even though I'm peeing like a race horse! I swear I could eat a sheet of drywall if it was put in front of me right now. Trying very hard to stick to the plan, this is a ton harder than I thought it would be :unsure:

      I can now buy clothes in normal stores again. Admittedly the first time when I started trying on clothes, I really had to keep myself calm. Normally trying on clothes causes me to become SOOO depressed that it take weeks just to get over it. Now, I have to keep myself from not wanting to buy everything!

      Hi, congrats on your surgery!  Saw you went to Dr. Pleatman.  I've been between doing the Lap Band and sleeve.  I was suppose to have a consultation with Dr. Pleatman this month.  So far great experience with his office coordinator Carrie (sp?).   Feeling really scared and nervous about getting the sleeve.  If you can share...how was your experience with Dr. Pleatman's office and the surgery?   Thanks!

      I'm not new, I was an active Lapbander from:

      February 6, 2017 Here I am on October 4, 2019 thinking back over my Lapband journey and how I thought I would be banded for life. Unfortunately, I have been sick for some time, and am on medications; and well my weight has constantly slowly increased. I was 225 pounds when I had my Lapband surgery on Dec. 17, 2010. At least my weight hasn't reached 210. I have been fluctuating between 202-206. For that, I'm grateful. I'm just excited to be able to have another tool to assist me with my weight loss journey. I'm not looking forward to the liquid stage, however.
