December 2013 Sleevers Come In!



Recommended Posts

Ok guys I need your help.

Since today my file was submitted to the insurance, I thought it will be a good time for me to tell my job.

Well my boss was so worried and I felt bad. I don't want to tell him I'm having the sleeve but I want to tell him a procedure that won't me look like I'm dying or Something lol

Well usually if u tell a man that its personal, they won't ask bc they think its a " female issue". Lol. And ur not fibbing bc it is personal, let him draw his own conclusion. And that cud b anything. Just a thot. Gl

Most people go for the hiatal hernia repair. Don't go with gallbladder (unless you've already had it out as many people have to have their gallbladder removed at some point after weight loss surgery.

However, I agree that "female" issues would be good with a male boss!

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'm on day 2, and struggling. My co-worker could hear my stomach growling today! Haha!

I am on day 11 and I no longer care about food! lol Yesterday, I could see my husband's food and think "I want some of that." Today I saw it and thought, "I want some of that." but when I actually thought about it, I couldn't even picture myself eating it or what it tasted like! lol I had no feelings about it at all! It was chili. Hope this lasts through next week and hope that all of you just starting on the diet get to this point too!

This is the best motivational speech ever! I think it should be copied and pasted every day on the new surgeries list! lol

LOL!!!! Well thank you!!!! We all need a good motivational speech to get through all the nerves and anxiety we're facing going into this surgery! We're here to support each other, and this group is an AWESOME group that does that quite well. I'm soooooo happy to be a December Sleever!

Thank you all for your encouragement and support. I honestly just don't know why this happened all of a sudden, but I am prepared now with the tiniest little pills I have ever seen.

Will be thinking of you tomorrow! Those little pills will hopefully help you rest tonight!

Dear newly sleeved brothers and sisters... DON'T TORTURE YOURSELF! STAY OFF THE SCALE.immediately after surgery..and try to weigh every other day as time moves along.

That was one of the number one pieces of advice I received from my sleeve mentor, the NUT and the surgeon.

It takes some time for all the fluids they pumped into you during surgery to work itself out...and the only way to be sure it moves along quickly is to make sure you are getting in your fluids. Sounds kind of crazy right? But yep fluids for fluids...to lessen the bloating and build up.

I'm dying to get on the scale, but I'm resisting until my 1st post-op Thursday.

Anyway..again don't torture yourself... your body will adjust naturally.

We were iced in all weekend and I barely ate, no snacking, got out for a final steak dinner Sunday, and come Monday on preop and I feel like I'm going crazy with hunger! I truly feel it's mostly psychological!

I really admire those who have had to do this for more than a week!

Mine is 4 Protein Shakes w skim milk or 5 with Water, sf Jello or Popsicles, clear non carbonated drinks. Oh and only one 8oz of low sodium broth a day.

You need to change your name to Wonder Woman! Holy moly you rock. Good for you. In my dreams I can only say "I no longer care about food!" BIG LOL... actually I really don't have a desire to eat, I just can't stand the hunger pangs!! Hopefully after tomorrow the hungry monster will give up and just lay still for a few days before he is pulled to his death next week ;)

Exactly, just a few more days and then we can start all over again with our baby tummies!

      Looks like I need people around to complete a 10K.  I tried to do one by myself this afternoon and I gave up at around the 7km mark.  Gonna try again on Friday, but I may have to look into joining a running club...

      My Surgeon asked me a question the other day and i didn't give it a lot of thought at the time.
      He asked "do you tell"
      we were talking about peoples reaction to seeing me since i lost such a large amount of me.
      I answered that i do tell if they ask but that it seems most everyone is afraid to mention it if they haven't seen me in a while or they decided they already know the answer so they don't need the truth from me (we all know those types)
      I have had exactly one family friend come right out and ask me how i lost so much weight this year and i told her i had Gastric Sleeve.
      I am sure family has passed it around to other family (you have that type family don't you? or is it just me)  
      So that left me wondering "do you tell" and i dont mean right at surgery time. more like a year or so down the road do you say how or do you just say cut out the sugar and carbs and WAALAA
      Its a real personal choice to open yourself up to that kind of criticism and we know all about how we took the "Easy" way and yada yada yada.
      hope everyone is having a great week

        If people ask, I am open about it

      2. ms.sss

        I'm about 10 months post op, and my standard answer is I eat way less and exercise way more (oh, and I cut the carbs by a lot). The only people I told were Mr., the Kid, BFF and my Mom.

      3. FluffyChix

        People know cuz my sissies have big mouths. And when skinny peeps ask out of morbid curiousity and they are "related" somehow to me, I look at em and arch my eyebrow and smile like, WTF? Then I just shrug and say, "I can neither confirm nor deny." (I've practiced this in the mirror many times. LOL!)

        But today, I was talking to a lady in my oncologist's office and she said "Oh don't you love you Surgeon X - bariatric surgeon? I'm in her weigh loss program!" And so I really opened up to her and talked frankly about the program and the surgery and details and how I'm so much happier and healthier, etc. So there has to be a real genuine need and desire for comraderie--otherwise, "Bye Felicia..."
