June 2017 Sleevers



Recommended Posts


I set a goal today of 3 pounds per week- does that sound realistic?

Yes, I think for right now 3 sounds about right.

It does surprise me sometimes that it's not more since I'm eating under 800 cals per day and burning over 2200.
But at least the scale is going the right direction!

So I'm almost 7 weeks out and getting bored with food. I'm doing lots of tuna salad and cottage cheese and cheese sticks and fish. Anyone got any good food ideas or recipes they are starting to use?




I am so with you!
One thing I love though is zucchini noodles with spaghetti sauce! I got a spiralizer and make noodles out of zucchini- tried adding carrots last week and it was wonderful - added just a little more flavor. I got mine in Amazon for around $20.

Im struggling with adding food I shouldn't eat because I can tolerate almost anything now. I'm wondering it that is really that bad if I watch my calories and get my Protein in. I have had a single small piece of pizza 3 times- usually on date night.

Hi June Sleevers! So I was doing pretty good but the last week and a half I have hit a huge stall. Only lost one pound in a week and a half. Before it was almost a lb a day. I haven't changed much. Getting between 700-800 calories a day. Getting 60oz of Water and around 70-80g of protien. Anyone else starting to stall??

Yes. I stalled for 2 full weeks now am losing again slowly. Stalled at 192.8 now I'm 190.2. I have started walking more though. And when I averaged my weight loss it's exactly what the dr said it would be- around 20 the first month and 10 each month after. I think we expect it to fall off because we are eating so little but that's not realistic I now see.

Hi all! Hope everyone is doing well since surgery ... I'm 8 weeks out so far I'm down 35lbs since surgery day! Here is my 2 month picture ... one was 4 days prior to surgery & the other is this past wednesday ... I thankfully can tolerate 99% of anything ... I've noticed cold cuts (roast beef in particular) is something I can't, other than that I'm doing great! This was the best decision I've ever made!

Hi there, fellow June sleevers! Glad to see everyone kicking butt! I'm in a bit of a stall right now, but overall things have been going well. I went on vacation for a few weeks at the end of July and probably snuck in some carbs that I should not be eating right now (or ever), and am trying to stay on track with Protein, Water and logging my food. Fortunately, I was able to be very active on vacation and do many things I would not have been able to just a few months ago. Need to gather up some "good" before pictures now that I have plenty of after/during pics. :)

      Going through a lot of personal issues...came to visit my mom to try and figure out what I need to do. I'm really experiencing that head hunger I keep hearing about. In my lowest moments I feel most hungry. My stomach hurts like I'm starving. Trying to get in and see a therapist ASAP. Just really struggling to keep it all together. It's really weird to feel like this and not have food...I feel lost. SOunds so ridiculous. Sorry to be a downer, just been a hell of a day. 😕

      Today I decided  along with grilled salmon I would eat yogurt. Not mixed together but bite for bite. Things are getting weird at Chateau GreenTealael

      Had my one month (really, a day short of 6 weeks) post-op appointment today. Everybody seemed pretty happy with how things are going, and I'm now officially in Phase III (long-term bariatric eating phase), with the caveat that rice and pasta are still not allowed, and no alcohol until at least the three month mark. (Not a problem.) But I'm cleared to have fruits and veggies! 🥦🍎🥗🍊🍇🍓 So exciting! I want an apple so badly. (OK, like, a third of an apple, with peanut butter, because I'm not sure a full apple will fit in my stomach, and eating something without any protein feels wrong.)

      I'm also cleared to exercise, though I've been advised to start slow with weights and to stop if I feel any "tearing" (😨) in my abdomen. Back to the pool with me! (I hurt my foot, so walking is out right now. I hate it. Swimming and starting with weight lifting should do a lot for my mood, though.)

      Scheduled 11/05/2018 for the second time to get a gastric sleeve. woke up from surgery with the nurses telling me. They were unable to do surgery .unable to introduce Laparoscopy when it needed to be. had to abort it. Too dangerous for me. I was so Very Depressed. I'm doing better with the depression. I must believe My Doctor Aborted surgery to Protect me .But I wanted this surgery so bad. Well I'm suppose to see him on 11/16/18 to discuss alternative methods. Hopefully I can Reschedule it for the third time

      5 days Post op Update:
      Well today is 5 days. I feel great! I still have some gas i am dealing with but with each sip comes a burp. Hopefully this part will be done with soon. I started my blood thinners shots this morning as they stopped them day after surgery due to too much drainage. I went back to work yesterday, didnt do much! My boss made me sit in her office all day lol.. but i am back and i am feeling good. I was able to get my liquids in yesterday and had my first BM yesterday, with another following this morning! I think i am doing pretty well for just having surgery. My weight is still up. I had gained almost 14 pounds during surgery due to gas and liquids, and lost 10 of it to date. Have 4 pounds to go before back to surgery date weight!
