Post sleeve pregnancy



Recommended Posts

Hey all, i just passed the 2 year surgery mark on the 15th of march and my beautiful baby girl was born on the 5th of march.

I put on about 22lbs during my pregnancy and so far have lost only 4lbs. I need to get to 143lbs which leaves me with 33lbs to go as i hadnt hit my target weight before i got pregnant.

I have started excercising but i have noticed i cab eat a lot more than when i just got sleeved.

Can anyone help me get on track so i can hit target weight and also get back into pre pregnancy clothes. Its not fun not fitting into clothes especially as i had just got a new wardrobe before i fell pregnant as i was finally a notmal size. Something which i hadnt experienced since i was a child.

I don't know if pregnancy has a lot to do with the sleeve expanding because it did for me. I've been doing Portion Control and watching what I eat more carefully as well as adding 150 minutes of workouts per week, this has helped me get back on track. I hope this helps!

Thanks @@MSanti i had no cravings during pregnancy but i had severe nausea and after i gave birth i actually had cravings which i gave in to. I started zumba classes last week so now i have to get my food right and get on track.

my surgeon said when you feel off track to "start over" that means reading your book and starting at stage 1 again

      Officially no longer over weight! Goal #1 reached! I'm now under 80kgs (176 lbs) at 179cm (5'10") and 10 months post-op and am over the moon. My weight at 79.9 kgs (176 lbs) gives me a BMI of 24.9 which means that I have a normal weight! OMG.
      I still want to lose about 16 lbs more though in order to get safely into the middle range to insure against that little regain that happens. The I have maintenence in front of me as well.
      BUT I have hit my first goal. Yeah me!!!

        Fantastic! That's such a great goal to reach and one I hope to get to this year as well.

      I had my gastric sleeve done September 10, 2020... I started out 330# before surgery.... I'm down to 260# now... I've been stalled out for over two months now.... I exercise when I can (Bad back/knees)... I follow my diet , get my protein and drink my water... But still not losing any weight... I've done everything I can think of to break the stall.... Even went back to liquid diet....  Sometimes I think this was a mistake having the surgery...

        sorry to hear that don't feel down. Maybe a reset meaning something new. I am in the process of having the surgery a second time. I had Lapland in 2012 removed in 2018 and I have gained everything back and some. When I stalled on lapband I had to do something new for me I joined a free boot camp and Zumba and then boom dropped 38 pounds in 2 months. I know you said bad back and knees so find something with your limits. But I think try something new I stalled for 8 months
