Nov 2013 Sleevers Progress So Far...



Recommended Posts

I've been stalled at 125lbs for over a month but I'm more than happy with that. I am very happy with my progress. I've recently hit my 100th workout this year (which doesn't count my afternoon bike rides and runs)

This is by far the best decision I've ever made for myself.

Progress pics attached.

Hows all NOV 2013 sleevers doing? its become very quiet in here. At this point I am down 66 pounds from surgery, and have stayed at this weight of 155 ish for a while. Which im ok with. I have recently found that I have gallstones and elevated liver enzymes. I got back to the dr next week to discuss what to do from this point. I do not want to get another surgery, so I hope I have some options. Hope to hear from some of you and whats going on with you at this point.

Have not achieved my goal.

My surgery was 11/14/13. Set back, injuries. I've lost total of 55 to 60 lbs.

not giving up, yet!! I'm currently weighing (fluctuates) 213/215. Goal 175 or 180. Really would just love to get below 200 at this point.

Congrats to all who have been working hard to achieve their goal and all whom have accomplished your goal!! Kudos to all! :)

Loved reading about all the success stories. :) I was sleeved on November 13, 2013. My highest weight was 312 lbs Surgery day I was 273 lbs. On December 16, 2014 I made it to 199 lbs. Yay I couldn't believe it. I am now at 223 lbs and just can't seem to get back on track. My initial goal weight was 150 lbs. I have now realized that 170 lbs is more of a goal for me. I just can't get back to losing. My mind is not there. :( Could somebody help me? I'm always comparing myself to others successes and get very discouraged like I failed. Tell me what do you eat in a day to keep losing? Any help would be so much appreciated. <3 Thank you for listening.

I reached my goal of 195 this summer and I've maintained under 200. My chief tool that has helped me is to remember to log every single meal even if I cheat. It helps me stick to my overall calorie and Protein goals. I've been able to enjoy food I want while stabilizing my weight. I use Lose it but my fitness pal is good too.

Good luck

My surgery was Nov 19, 2013. I never got down to "goal" either. I started at 269, lost 11lbs on the 2 week liquid diet before surgery. The lowest I got was 211.6 and this morning I was 214.6. I would LOVE to be under 200lbs, but I seriously think its my lack of exercise. I still get really full fast, but I also snack which I never did in the active losing phase. Its still a struggle, but I need to remember that I was on an insulin pump before surgery and I take no insulin now, even though I'm still considered a diabetic. I also take 2 less medications than I did before surgery. I have psoriatic arthritis and that has slightly improved with weight loss. Its auto-immune so it will never go away.

On another note, my 35lb dog slipped a disk in his back and now needs to be carried up and down 2 flights of stairs. It amazes me that I used to carry double his weight up the stairs. I don't know how I did it.

I can't believe how similar we are with our weight loss. I know I feel 100 percent better and I do exercise. I LOVE Zumba and it's so rewarding. Thank you so much for your response. I was thinking I was the only one who never reached goal as so many stories I see. I felt so guilty. I struggle every day with the number on the scale and I know it's all in my head. I will always be working at this weight progress and I just don't want it to consume my life all the time. I'm hoping I will just continue to be active and be aware of what I put in mouth to keep the weight off. Great job on your success also. :)

Feeling like a total failure. That honeymoon phase ended and I wish I'd never told anyone I had gastric sleeve. I still feel restriction with Proteins, but exercise is still hard for me to grasp. I initially lost 57 pounds. Gained 20. My lowest weight was 199. I'm tall so that helps, but I'm nowhere near goal. Some days I wonder if I should consider revision to bypass. I have no will power and the liquids/puddings/sweets go down far too easily. THIS MSQUEEN IS SAD.

Please don't feel like a failure. I know that is how I have been feeling too but I also have to realize I did lose weight and so did you and that's a huge thing. :) Sure we didn't get to goal but as we continue to try and get back on track, we may reach a more realistic goal for our bodies. When it comes to the food, yes, everything seems to go down easier but it's up to us what we put in our mouths. You can make the right choices. Remember we had this surgery for a tool and we have to use it to our full advantage. We may only get to a goal weight in another year. We have to keep going and still stay focused. We can do it MSQUEEN. We can! :D

Exactly, its a TOOL. Its up to us to do the work. Last night I attended a YELP Elite event, basically a multi-course free meal. I was full after the first course, yet I continued to eat and eat. I didnt even make it home, I had to ask my wife to pull off the freeway so I could vomit. I have not thrown up for over a year( maybe more like 18 months). I kept eating even though I was full. I seriously do not think I can attend any of those types of events ever again.
