June 2017 Sleevers



Recommended Posts

Nicole here! I'm a 911, police, fire, EMS dispatcher for my county sheriff's office. I'm 42, wonderful DH, no kids, but plenty of nieces and nephews!
My surgery date was June 20th.
31 pounds lost since surgery day,
44 pounds lost since start of pre-op diet.
My surgeon's office approved a 6 week leave, that I'm taking every advantage of for a full, rested recovery, before I step back into that stressful job. Not to mention it's 12 hour shifts, AND it's shift work (4 nights, 3 off, 3days, 1off, 3 nights, 3off, 4 days, 7off) I'd be lying if I wasn't nervous about going back to work and juggling that schedule and stress.

I went to my primary doc yesterday. Sleeved 6/22- 25 pounds down. A1C is now 5.4- which is normal!!!! The weight loss also isn't as fast as I expected but I think I had unrealistic expectations. It took time to put it on it will take time to get it off and hard work. Worked out yesterday on my own. Lots of sweat felt good.
I was so tired today though, I'm guessing from the workout.
I need to get on a regular workout schedule so it's not such a chore to get to the Y. I can't wait until working out energizes me rather than wearing me out.
I set a goal today of 3 pounds per week- does that sound realistic?

Hey everyone! Sleeved June 8, down 29 lbs. The last 2 weeks have been slow going, but still moving in the right direction, so I'm not too worried.

I'm also a June 8 sleever. I just got back from beach vacation and weighed myself:( ive only lost 20 lbs overall. I feel like I should be shedding lbs quicker. I'm kind of depressed about it.

Someone else posted that if you hit a stall add another 100 calories to your diet and it will break the stall.
When I read that it reminded me of something I read in the book by the extreme weight loss guy- he said virtually the same thing. When he has patients stall when they're eating too few calories he has them eat a little mores the next time I stall I'm going to try it.

Hi all.
I'm June 27th and doing pretty good. Down 32 from surgery. The head hunger has come back this week. I keep finding myself hungry throughout the day for the first time. So far doing pretty good with it, but it makes me nervous!
I'm getting around 600 calories a day. Wondering where everyone else is with calories?

I'm June 19, down 30 and thrilled about it. I'm doing OK on Water and Protein, but getting 350-450 calories per day. It doesn't sound like enough, but I feel great and I go to work for my 10-hour days. I am still having lower GI distress about half the time, and that's getting really old. I made a commitment to eat plain NF Greek yogurt with active cultures every morning for Breakfast, and that seems to be helping.

Hi everyone- how's it going? I had stall a couple of weeks ago but am now losing .5 to 1 lb per day again! My clothes are actually getting too big for me! Time to go shopping in my own closet and clear out the bigger ones! Woo hoo! 28 lbs down since the start of this journey.
Still having trouble getting my liquids in though - I rarely get more than 30 ounces. I think I need to set a sip timer!
Please post an update of your progress/victories/challenges.

My stall finally broke, too. Boink! Five lbs. gone! I come to work and someone says "Oh! Is that a new top? It looks nice." And I reply "No. It's from the archives." We all have 'em.

Also discovering that some artificial sweeteners and sugar alcohol makes me so ill! I got some sugar free candy from the dollar store had 15 g of sugar alcohol- every time I eat one I get sweats and clammy and nauseous. I think I have to start watching that.

I was sleeved June 5th, so i am on my 10th week this week. The first two weeks i lost 18 lbs :1310_thumbsup_tone1: but the 8 weeks since then have been ssslllloooowwwww! I go between 30-32 lbs down. Eating is kind of like torture.. I am lucky if I get 4oz a meal, then i get really full and uncomfortable. I guess I am doing something wrong... probably because I am not exercising. After work I have no energy - but I try to walk as much as I can. I get my Vitamins in because i have the patch so it is easy for me. I do pretty good with my Protein intake but Water isnt as easy. Just very discouraged these days when you see no results AND cant eat... oh.. starting weight 244 current weight 214

When I eat "normal" food it seems to trigger me wanting to munch all day! I had a tiny salad for lunch at work with grilled chicken. I had enough Protein yesterday but just kept wanting to eat. Seems when I work in the office I just want to nibble all day. Does anyone else experience this? What do you do to avoid it? I ate 1000 calories yesterday- just because I let myself eat extra things. Normally I'm at around 600.

      I'm struggling a little. My younger sister wants to go out to a buffet for Thanksgiving so no one has to cook and stress. While I appreciate her sentiment, I also don't want to pay $65 a head (4 ppl in my family) especially since I can't eat much AND buffets are so difficult to deal with overeating. I told my sister after thinking about it that buffets aren't okay for me. She seemed to understand, but was disappointed. Am I being selfish by not going along with the plan? I purchased a turkey to cook and I can make sides that are bariatric friendly. Sigh, this one is bothering me. I might be emotionally low right now because my dog passed away recently and that is contributing to my thinking.

        Sorry about your pup. That's a real grief you need to allow yourself to express.

        So $65 for each person is hefty. We couldn't afford that for TG for 4. But buffets don't freak me. I wouldn't even pay--just sneak a bite or two off a plate here or there. No biggie. But doing a restaurant or keeping food simple is also what works for most.

        Sorry you're having a tough time about the upcoming holiday. Remember, our joy will mostly be with being with those we love.

      2. Orchids&Dragons

        So sorry about the dog. It is so hard when they pass.

        Yes, that $65 is super steep. You'd really be paying $260 for 3 people to eat and you to watch. Yikes! And I'm sure they wouldn't let you in without paying. Maybe just beg your sis to put it off until next year when you might be able to enjoy it too? I mean, honestly, you've already got the darn turkey. You're still a work in progress and you sure don't want to throw up in the restaurant. Maybe thinking about it that way will help your sister understand. By next Thanksgiving, you'll be far more sure of what you can handle and what you can't.

        Good luck.

      Stuck in a stall, been 237 for a few days. Sucks! But good news, I no longer fit in a 2XL leggings or shirts. Back to XL in shirts and leggings!!!  WOO!

      One Week Post Op today! I feel great and almost walking back to normal. I have learned in this short week to not drink your dinner protein shake at a constant sipping. I spent 30 min the last two nights trying to release the pressure in my chest. Lesson Learned! I am back down to Surgery Date Weight as of this morning, actually half a pound less. Now to look forward to actual losses LOL. I guess i had a lot of gas and liquids that are taking time to leave my body. Its all good, it will be gone eventually! I have no regrets, and take each day as it comes and look forward to the next stage next Thursday, and getting my stitches out on Tuesday.
