I am just had my surgery yesterday . Today I am up and around with hardly much pain. I was so scared and anxiety for months before the surgery. I had Dr. Alvarez do it. He is great and his surgical technique is right on. I have a very low pain tolerance and I am doing great.

Been a while since I showed my BP pals some love...I'm 10 days out doing really good with my sleeve. Taking it day by day. I pray all is well with you all. (All who have been sleeved this month and all that are still waiting in line). So excited to be on this journey with each of you! Cheers to us for taking this big leap and re-claiming our lives!

I had mine done on the 30th. The 31st was the worst day due to nausea. Biggest complaint is weakness and tired. Started Vitamins today hope it helps. Getting liquids in with no problem. I can say everyday I feel better. Family support is the key. I normally am one controlling everything. Letting someone else take the reins for awhile is helping me. This site has been a lifesaver. Thanks so much for sharing. I read them all. Hope to be able to help someone too.

Lovely mama are you getting enough fluids n Protein? I was also sleeved on the 28th n I didn't begin to feel close to normal until I met my requirements. It wasn't and still isn't easy.

Good luck to you!

I feel you with the shakes. I have to mix mine with milk. That's the only way I can stomach them and it actually tastes good with milk.

Hi tomorrow I'm 5 weeks out! Went back to work Friday for a few hours. I'm still not getting enough calories or Protein in but trying. I went to the movies with the family today and had a tiny bit of popcorn. I'm so full! Don't think I'll be doing that again to soon protein is much more important! I'm thrilled not having my lap-band any longer! I had it for 8 years 2 totally unfilled.

        It will be interesting to watch as this theory develops. Thanks for posting!

      Feel like it's time for a status update, I haven't been on here regularly in a while and I need to keep my mindset focused on my goals.
      I haven't weighed myself in ~ 3 weeks.  I think I'm becoming the opposite of "obsessive" about tracking my progress and it could cause me some issues.  The good thing is that there have still been quite a number of NSV's happening that is telling me that I'm still progressing without knowing what the scale says.
      First one is that a belt I bought about 5 weeks ago because all my other belts were too big is also on the last hole so I'll have to buy yet another belt again.  second, I bought new jeans about a month ago and I have a lot more slack in the waist than I did when I purchased them.  I also boarded a plane and had about 8 inches of slack in the belt.  Finally, I hit my goal last week of being able to ride go-carts with my kids.  The last time I tried about 4 years ago, I had to leave because I couldn't fit in the harness.  This was sweet victory and I showed those two how it was done on the race course!!  😈

      I just looked through all my old pants after my pre-op pants started getting to big. Keep in mind that I wear men's pants (usually cargos) because I am so tall 5'10"/5'11" ish. I also find that men's baggies tend to fit me better.
      I started out at a 44 in waist pant and quickly found that I was back down to my 42's. So even when thise got to be too big, I had to start pulling old clothes out of storage. After finding my 38's, I thought that these would not yet fit, but when I tried them on, they fit perfectly. I also found some older pants that now fit better than I remembered. What a relief! It's not like I can pop down to the store like I could do in the US and the styles here in Sweden are all skinnt jeans which I cant stand. I also found some 36's, but I'm not mentally ready to try those on yet. The biggest challenge will be buying women's clothing again.

      slow and steady wins the race.  don't get discouraged and just keep at it. Let your sleeve do its job and try not to stress yourself out.
      hope you are all having a great summer and enjoying what your sleeve has given you.
      just got back from a wedding in OR. and man am i afraid to get on the scale

        Great reminder about how fast you can lose weight. The mind games we play with ourselves are the worst.
