December 2013 Sleevers Come In!



Recommended Posts

Hi all, just wanted to update. I was sleeved 12-16 and went for my first post-op appt yesterday. I'm officially down 22.2 pounds!! I was excited & my surgeon was very pleased. I know it's not as much as some folks but it feels great to me! Down at least one pant size and probably another if I would just try!

Have a great weekend!!

Ok fellow dec sleevers ... Here are my updates:

Sleeved on 16th.

Starting weight: 277

Pre op diet weight/day of surgery: 264

Weight today: 241

I am 5'11 (female) and was told to eat 80 gs of Protein a day. I have struggled to even get 50 at times ...

Thanks to those that posted a reply to my question on some protein alternatives. I stomach unjurys protein really well and this has helped me quite a bit.

Im crushing a bunch of nutrients/vitamins still and they taste so awful that I tend to want to throw them up ... Any suggestions??

Also, keep the faith! I have seen and feel a significant weight loss already and I know all of you can do it! We are in this and we are in it for the long haul. One day at a time. When the going gets tough I just remember the sacrifice that got me (us) here and do not want it to go in vain. Here is to better healthy lifestyle filled with adventures!

Brazillian:

I have chewable vitamins for bariatric use.

Bariatric Fusion Multivitamin - several flavors - I have orange cream

Bariatric Advantage calcium citrate 500 mg - Chewy bite - Carmel flavored (almost tastes like candy)

Solaray sugar free B-Complex chewable - orange flavor

They taste great and are easy to get down.

Hello! I was sleeved December 9 and just saw this thread! I'm 30, 5'4" and started out at 245lbs. With my pre-op diet I lost 9lbs and since surgery I've lost a total of 36! :) I'll soon be in ONEDERLAND and looking forward to it! Being almost 5 weeks out I'm experimenting with some foods but really wanna have a salad. Do you think that my tummy is ready?

fostermama:

My NUT says starting week 4, which you have passed, that you can have soft lettuce (I am thinking Spring Mix in the bags)! Since others are saying No, maybe you should check with your NUT. I haven't tried salad yet myself. I have enough trouble getting all the Protein in!

So today I am 4 weeks out. I am down 32 pounds however that also includes the 2 week preop. I am just a tiny bit disappointed but I know it will come off and 32 pounds is nothing to sneeze at. I've gone from a BMI of 52.2 to a BMI of 47.5 and have lost 19% of my weight. I was going to check my measurements but decided it would be easier to do it on the 13 of each month rather than every 4 weeks. Hope everyone has a great weekend!

That's great Red. WOW 32 lbs. and 5 points off your BMI. Yeah.

Thanks!! And because I had surgery in Mexico, I don't have a NUT here in Canada. Just trying to figure things out. :)

Hi!

I was sleeved on 12/19. Doing well overall. I'm transitioning from liquid Protein to real food protein. What are some of your favorite protein sources?

I was sleeved on the 19th too! I have been eating salmon and other white flaky fish along with tuna. I have even eaten meatloaf, meatballs...small portions of course! Oh, and don't pass up the Wendy's Chili!!!!!

      So my surgery anniversary date is on the 24th of this month, but I had my 1-year follow up early with my surgeon this morning (I have another 1-year followup at the hospital on Monday to get my bloodwork and labs done).
      Anyhoo...my surgeon was very pleased with my results (and so where the office staff apparently, because 3 of the front desk ladies came by my exam room to give me props/high fives/generally gawk at me).
      But get this: he asked if I would be willing to come in for a future photoshoot so that I could be on a poster! And I was all, ummmm....no thanks, LOL.

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".
