December 2013 Sleevers Come In!

Recommended Posts

I haven't written in a long while myself and really don't follow, but saw the above title and waned to report in with good news. I got my sleeve on 12/13/13 and at the time had gone from a size 20/22 to a 10/12; lost a total of 86 pounds from when I got approval Aug 2013 and am walking 4-5 days/week for 30 minutes or more. I'm happy and doing well and wish you all the best.

I can eat anything and the only thing I have problems with is eating a slice of bread with bacon and egg; it just kind of upsets my stomach. I can only eat small portions, but eat everything in moderation, including sweets.

Hello all, I too haven't posted in a while, i do pray that everyone is still doing very well and losing or stabilized. I've been thinking alot about how things are going now that we're over a yr out. As for me, I'm still struggling with the swallowing, still no answers or solutions. I too can eat about anything, still painful though. Last time i updated, i was 153 or 4, not sure, but I'm not losing anymore, I'm gaining and im scared to death! Im 160, yes, lots of stress and stress eating, carbs, or small smacks more frequent. And that's stressing me. How is everyone else doing? ?? I'm going to rejoin the group if that's ok. I need your support and advice please if anyone is here anymore. Thanks in advance :) Dee.

      I feel like I've finally gotten past the biggest hurdle. Surgery date is September 6th, the day after Labor Day, and yesterday I got my insurance approval letter. I've followed everything they've told me to do, and I've even lost 30 lbs on my own since hubby had to change his diet for diabetes. No worries now about having to do 4 weeks of the liver shrinking diet instead of 2. On my initial visit, if I had gained just 5lbs I would have had to do 4 weeks. It's getting closer. Just 2 more months to wait.

        Although the prep work took energy, I found the biggest hurdle was post-operative. The first 48 hrs were extremely uncomfortable. I did an overnight and trying to down the liquids, Tylenol, and especially the barium was rough. Thankfully though, I got away with only having to have 1 belly injection after surgery. Needless are not my thing.

      I am looking for people to connect with that are 4-5 years out. Many of the support sights I go to are all newbies. And while I enjoyed that when i first had my surgery and found it useful, I am looking to exchange ideas with folks that are out a few years. I am slowly gaining weight back and losing my excitement. I don't want that!

      How do you stay focused? I'm struggling a bit the past three days.  All I want is sweets and carbs.  I have no clue what changed but for some reason I'm craving hard.  I'm literally dreaming about food and when I wake up, I'm thinking about my next meal.  I'm not "hungry" but so munchy.  I'm trying to stay focused, busy, exercise and the likes but this looking struggle is getting to be so hard.  I meet with my nutritionist tomorrow and I'm so hopeful she has some advice.  My protein intake is great, liquids on point, even throwing in some raw veggies and berries to curb the sweet/carb craving.  Thoughts?
