HELLO JANUARY SLEEVERS!



Recommended Posts

Seems that there are many threads about January sleevers, but now we have a place to call home.

My surgery is January 20th. I'm having my band removed and sleeve at the same time. Currently talking my way through day 2 of this preop all liquid diet... help!

I'm scheduled for January 18. Just got my insurance approval yesterday. I'm a little luckier than most as my surgeon only requires a 1 week pre-op diet, which I will be starting on Monday. ????

Getting through day 5 of this liquid diet. Last time I did liquids for 2 weeks was post op when I got my band back in 09

Then I didnt care. I didnt want anything anyway. This is getting tough but I want less visceral fat and a good liver so they can do both procedures at once.

How is everyone doing?

I'm getting my sleeve on Monday and I'm so excited/completely freaking out! I'm only 25 and never been hospitalized for anything, never had an IV or catheter, never had anything worse than Vicodin for post wisdom tooth extraction.... And I'm a nurse! I've never been off this long, 3 weeks?! What the hell am I going to do?!!! I guess this will be a lot of firsts for me, but the best first will be my first pair of jeans that I can buy in a store that fit my belly, and my tiny legs! Who else is totally excited for some actual skinny jeans!!!????

Thanks! I'm doing pretty well actually. Have had the gas a bit still but it seems to be making it's way out alright. I've been a bit emotional today but think that's all a very early part of this journey. I hope you are doing well!

      OMG! I dreamt of cake!!
      As of late, my dreams have been food obsessed. Last night I dreamed of gorging on good old American sheet cake with chocolate frosting. There was white frosting as well. Good thing we can't get that in Sweden! I just hope that I haven't become too engrossed in food. BUT they are only dreams after all.

        That's wonderful! I have trouble sitting still in the movies now. (I even fidgeted through the last John Wick, and it was awesome) I can't imagine sitting still this soon after surgery. More power to ya! Have fun!

        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.
