Any sleevers in college?



Recommended Posts

Hi Jesse,
I am a junior at University and was sleeved the 11th. Probably should've waited till finals were over[emoji28] as I am totally procrastinating being just a week out from surgery. Still, life goes on and so does the semester. Planning on hanging out at the library for the next 2 weeks to prevent it. Struggling with Protein and Water is finally going down better. Think I will be okay. Already down 16 lbs preop included. Haven't seen the 200s in forever so I am excited for this journey. The timing was not ideal but like school work we suck it up and carry on. Hope your doing just as great! Aloha[emoji16]

Hi Jesse, I'm a sophomore at the university of Delaware. I haven't had surgery yet, but my final clearance appointment is on Friday. Hopefully I'll get my surgery approved and scheduled soon. Do you think I should wait until after finals?

It would definitely be easier to wait but thats up to you. I considered university of Delaware and still am since I'm right next door in MD and am planning to transfer, I'm at community college.

@raveena128I work at UD haha! I am also a student at Wilmington University. I would definitely suggest waiting until after finals. You don't know if you will have any complications *knock on wood* It is best to get it done during the summer, that's what I did and I'm thankful I did because I DID have complications.

That's cool that you work at UD. Thank you for the advice. Hopefully will have surgery scheduled two weeks after finals, so I don't have to do the diet while doing finals lol. Sorry to hear you had complications. How are you in your journey now?

Hey I'm a junior in college who's 3.5 months post op and I've lost 70 pounds so far :) So far my journey is going well! I have an apartment on campus with a kitchen so I've been able to have a lot of control over my diet and I go to a large school so I get lots of walking in every days. I honestly have 0 regrets about getting sleeved.

I think my biggest piece of advice as a college student is to keep to a routine and plan your meals. Like always make sure you have good food on hand in your dorm so you aren't tempted to grab something high carb/high sugar from the dining hall/cafes on campus when you're on the go.

Best of luck with finals and I hope things go well for you! [emoji4]

I'm actually planning to take an online class, but it starts the same day as my surgery, but I think I'll be able to do it! I'll just have to play catch up once I'm feeling better. But that's great that you got through it!

I didn't face any problems, and everything was great. Everyone at college was so understandable and helpful, and I felt the support and help.

I felt okay!

It is hard to keep organized and have a balanced diet with workouts when having so much homework. I have a source to help me write my college essay and maintain my college grades at a good level. https://ca.edubirdie.com/write-my-college-essay is a reliable solution to eliminate headaches about writing tasks and concentrate on the goal of losing weight healthily.
Best of luck with finals and I hope things go well for you!

I understand you, campus cafes also tempt me, and it is hard for me to maintain my right way. I am hoping that I'll manage to deal with keeping both a healthy diet and college success.

      Pre-op Liquid Diet - Day 1
      Had my morning cup of 8 oz Regular Orange Juice. I am ready!!! I did have 3 bites of my fiance's cheesecake last night for dinner. It was so yummy but with my former sleeve it didn't allow me any more bites.

      It's Saturday!!! My fiance and I are out doing yard work and I made the mistake of not staying hydrated before going out so now my body is shaking and weak. I have my pre-op appointment Tuesday, the 2nd and I am trying my hardest to lose another 2 lbs by then.

      Looking for new sleeve buddies! I’m 1.5 weeks post op and things seem to be getting a little difficult! I actually WANT food again eghh! Honestly, I feel like you don’t truly understand this process unless you go through it! Don’t be shy, say hello and let’s support each other during this journey 🙂

        You got this!! When I had the sleeve I cried every day during the liquid phase, It was during the super-bowl! I was sooo hungry I sucked on a piece of pork rind. LOL
