December 2013 Sleevers Come In!



Recommended Posts

--------

These days I'm barely getting in 500 cals and scary to say probably only 50g of Protein which is too low for my doc office -- they want me at 65-80g. I'm coming over a setback After some flounder that did not sit well so started back on full liquids at 8 weeks out. I'm almost 11 weeks out now and have been doing ok with salmon and stewed meats. most of my Protein still comes from shakes blended with fage greek yogurt cause it takes way too long to eat any solids. Still recovering from hernia repair. Everything makes me gassy these days post flounder so I'm taking ultra tums as per my doc. I take spin classes 2-3x a week and have no idea where I get the energy from But it's a fun stress reliever.

I feel fuzzy only when I don't get enough Water like minimum 6-8 cups daily or more on spin class days.

Hope you feel better soon.

I sleeved on Dec 9th and my HW 233 CW 184. 2 wks ago I started focusing on 65 to 70 grams of protein a day, 50 or below carbs and I've increase my calories to an average of 900 - 1000 day ( which is a lot of work to get it all in). The results have been incredible, about nine pounds in 2 weeks. I truly believe my body was in starvation mode, I think my metabolism has been kicked into gear.

I need focus on consistent exercise which is a huge area of opportunity for me.

Yay! That is awesome Kiap82..It is amazing how good those things that feel so good and that thin people have never even thought about... just tieing our shoes, crossing our legs,seat belts...etc..etc... :D Shellvsg, that is very interesting. I think there is a lot of truth to what you are saying,but I feel like I'm going to gain weight if I go off of what I am doing. (Head stuff)...But I totally think you are right!!! Cheers to you both!!! :D :D

My husband got me an inexpensive ring to wear in the interim. We call it the "stunt double ring."

I haven't gotten a stunt double and wouldn't you know I had someone at work ask me why I was 'missing something'. I thought she was implying my weight loss in general but it turned out she meant my wedding rings. She had the nerve to ask if everything was ok! I was so stunned I told her all was fine minus my rings being too big to wear.

O my gosh. Just wanted to share this. I was sitting at work and look down an saw I had cross my legs. I was amazed and looked at my coworker and said "look my legs are crossed." She had a blank look on her face and I told her this was a first for me in a long time. We had a NSV high five. Yeah for me.

ME TOO! Happened this past Sun night... my friend instantly high fived me :). Congrats!!!

12/17/13....Felipe the Sleeve was born. 3 months is creeping up fast!!!!

Down 50lbs... Weight loss has slowed considerably since I discovered the real dangers of sliders....

Pork rinds, pickles, mini triscits and buttered popcorn... I just had to tell Felipe "no more!"

So were back at the gym, preparing for a 5k, shopping, wearing a size 12!...and respecting the journey always.

Shelby- I too felt the wrath of the slider at the movie theatre a few days ago. It's was my first time having popcorn since surgery and I assured my friend that he should only get a small since there was no way I'd be able to eat more than two fist fulls. Well- he got a medium and I'll be damned if I didn't help him finish the bag.

This was my first time experiencing that feeling since surgery. Even after leaving the movie, I was ready for dinner. Needless to say, my tryst with popcorn was short lived. Won't be doing that again! :(
