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

      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...

      Happy anniversary to me - well almost. Friday marks the one yr anniversary of asking my GP if she thought I’d be a candidate for WLS.  
      What an exciting, sometimes frustrating but ultimately rewarding journey. I’ve lost 40kg or about 40% of my body weight & am below my goal weight. Some days I  just can’t believe where I am now from where I was 12 months ago. I never imagined this reality. 
      I am grateful for the encouragement I received from family & friends. I am grateful I have a supportive GP. They helped smooth the rough patches & kept me on track. I’m also grateful for this site. The information & support has been so helpful & eased many worries. 
      I’m still sorting out maintenance (what works one week doesn’t the next) but I’m up for the challenge.

      Too much anxiety and stress:
      So lately thanks to COVID 19 (I don't have it though been trying to stay safe and healthy) I've been having severe anxiety and panic attacks lately. I've always had this problem but it's getting worse so as a result I've been having bad insomnia and getting sleep is hard for me right now. I wish it were easier but it's a work in progress AGAIN. I thought I got over this hump a while ago and was getting sleep but now my insomnia is back in full spring and I hate it! My grandmother is also moving on Tuesday and that is also stressing me out because I'll have no family nearby since everybody is in other states now thanks to California being too high. It makes me so sad man! But I am seeing her today on Monday for the last time before she leaves on Tuesday this week.
