December 2013 sleevers progress



Recommended Posts

I was sleeved 12/9/13, I am down 50lbs today! I am so excited, but very nervous as I am in the Hair loss stage, still throw up small amounts of food or liquid. I have to be very conscious about what I eat because I find myself being more daring about wanting to try new things. I try to get all my Protein naturally as I have tried every Protein Drink out there and will never drink one again. Has anyone ever tried protein pills? ? My doc said protein for hair loss. I have slowed down on my weight loss and sometimes it seems the worse I eat the more I lose.....a little confusing!

I was sleeved 12-13-13. As of last week I had lost 62 pounds. Everything has been going good til this week. I gained 4 pounds. The only thing that has changed is my doctor had me stopped taking my BP medicine. It had HCT(water pill) in it. Hopefully It's just Water weight. So other than that have had no issues with any foods. Been having to buy clothes a lot.

Hello,

Sleeved on 12/11/13 and down 62 pounds. I don't weigh myself other than when I'm at my surgeons office for follow-up or at my primary care doctor's office. I measure my sucess on how big my clothes fit me. I"m down from a size 28 to now into a 20 and getting REALLY close to fitting into an 18.

Hi. Was sleeved on Dec 5. I have lost 80 pounds since the surgery. I have just started to taper off with the wieght loss as I have stalled for a couple of weeks. I quit taking my blood pressure medicine last week as I was getting alot of head rushes and dizzy spells. Checking my bp daily to make sure it is in the normal range (120/80). I have gone from a 46/48 waist to a 38/40. I have been very fortuante in my recovery as I have had no complications with the surgery or with any foods I have tried to eat. The only negative is that my gall bladder is acting up and will be removed next Friday. All it wanted to do was to make some stones. Poor little guy. LOL

I was sleeved on Dec.18 and have lost 52 lbs so yes I have started losing hair and have been of Biotin 10000 mcg since before surgery. I just cannot get in enough Protein no matter how had I try. Three bites of anything and I am just hurting so bad and Protein Drinks make me sick.

Great job everyone! I am big time losing hair and feeling like all I eat is Protein to ensure I get enough. I have to be very very conscientious of what I buy and what I eat, because I still have days where I want to boredom eat or emotional eat, but I will not go back to bad habits! I am loving the challenge if staying healthy!

Way to go everyone! :)

My surgery was on 12-5-13 and I'm down 63 pounds. I'm still having a shake everyday for Breakfast but, I actually like my current flavor (Cookies and cream) and look forward to it. Plus I like starting the day off with 35 grams of Protein.

My closet has thinned out drastically. The bright side to that is that I've always LOVED to shop so, now I actually have a reason to.

Blondiee:

I have a shake almost every morning as well (Sleeved Dec 2, 2013)...can you share your Cookies & Cream recipe? I use powders?utm_source=BariatricPal&utm_medium=Affiliate&utm_campaign=CommentLink" target="_ad" data-id="1" >unjury shake mix..YUMMY! I've used the same recipe since this began: vanilla shake mix, PB2, SF Choc pudding mix, Protein powder, milk, ice.

My closet is looking different these days too...seems like I am at a stall right now however but going from a size 18/20 to a 14 is feeling pretty good!

Keep up the good work!

BTW: I don't weigh myself everyday, I find it to be discouraging if I don't see it move...like feeling good in my smaller clothes...

Need to get back to Gym, took a vacation 2 weeks ago and lost my groove...tonight, its to the GYM!

GO GO GO sleevers!

I was sleeved on 12/11/13 - i am down 72lbs as of this past Sunday - i am just starting to lose my hair. I have been taking 1000mcg of Biotin since before surgery... maybe its not enough? i try to only weigh myself on the weekend, but im not going to lie... sometimes i get super crazy OCD and weigh myself every day... i have no idea why i torcher myself... I still don't eat a whole lot and i try to listen to my body, when i start to feel satisfied i stop so that i don't get sick or feel horrible.

At 3 months out, i was walking about 5 miles a day and ended up with a blood clot (DVT) and had to stay a few days in the hospital - the docs weren't sure if it was a cause of the surgery etc... but i just found out last night (5 weeks later) that it is not from the surgery, some things came back in my blood - so some more blood testing is needed - but other then this hiccup, all in all this has been good and i have been cleared to start walking again however not allowed to "work out" till we know more about the clotting... congrats to everyone & their weight loss!!!

      Went to see the Star Wars movie yesterday. (Glad I waited as no one else was in the cinema for the midday session - yes!) Hadn’t been to the cinema for a few months and OMG I suffered the most terrible butt pain.  So uncomfortable. Started after 30 mins. Was in the premium cinema so grabbed a cushion to sit on but it didn’t help. Ended up sitting sideways in the chair, stretched out on an ottoman. Soooo super glad no one else was there. Sometimes I do miss my old butt fat cushioning... but not really.

      I have a surgery date, I have my next doctor appointment on Wed and then Thursday I start my 2 week liquid pre-op diet. I am very nervous right now. I know it's going to be a tough mind game.

      Week 5 Post Op Report

      What a journey! I am 5 weeks from surgery and a total of 24.4 pounds down!

      I feel amazing! I’ve incorporated a ton of walking and I’m using my Apple Watch to help me along! I have closed all three of my fitness rings for 11 days straight! Ok, so I am in LOVE with my Apple Watch. I've had it for almost a year and I am just now tapping into it's fitness power!

      I keep on top of my protein, vitamins and biotin!

      I struggle with water but I average about 50 ounces a day. I have only had one day where I had to “purge” because something did not agree with me. Tuna and my Tiny Tummy still do not agree so I’m going to leave it alone for a while!

      I walk on average a little more than 3 miles a day for my exercise but manage to get in at least 13,000-17,000 steps a day depending on how my schedule goes.

      I get up every hour and walk around for at least five minutes. Then if I’m watching a show I get up and walk in place during the commercials!

      I meet with my doc this week for a progress report.

      I have one more week before I graduate from soft foods to the final phase!

      I’ve got my cookbooks ready, my food scale ready and my measuring plates ready!

      I could NOT be more happy with my progress! I feel amazing and I’m grateful to have this tool!

      None Scale Victory: My rings on my finger are spinning!

        Sabrina, you are doing so well. I'm truly inspired and equally excited for you. The view you shared is breathtaking and relaxing, I'm in love with the ocean. Please keep sharing. Where did you find the trackers and how do I access them? My date is approaching the 31st, I'm in liquid diet mode. I see my surgeon on the 17th. Any advice?

      2. SabrinaGoddess

        You got this sis! You totally do.
        The ocean is so peaceful. Some days I get blessed with seeing whales, dolphins and seals. It is truly amazing.

        You can go to under our name at the top left section and click "TICKERS" you can create them there. Then when you lose weight you just go to "my surgery" and change your weight and they will adjust.

        On the liquids, do sugar free pop-cycles. They are more like a treat than a liquid and they count as 2 ounces each! Liquids not the funnest part of our journey but who cares....LOL. I do like the IsoPure clear liquid protein drinks, you can get them at GNC. The flavors are ok. I also LOVED Kettle and FIre Broth and Epic Broths so I drank them all the time, it's good for you. It's BONE BROTH. Kinda pricey but the good stuff usually is.

      3. Krimsonbutterflies

        Thank you for the encouragement/positivity!!! I'm going to conquer this liquid phase, moment by moment. I also appreciate the mini tutorial of how to get the ticker. I'm thinking of starting status updates after my pre-op visit with the surgeon on Friday. I really enjoy the personal perspective and experience being shared, without feeling like the thread is being dominated. I look forward to how each person is approaching the wls lifestyle. Thank you lady, good night. Happy Whale watching. I love seeing the dolphins at Hermosa Beach.
