Any January 2018 Sleevers?



Recommended Posts

I've been on a modified liquid diet for the last 6mos., which consists of 3-4 Premier Protein shakes, and one lean and green solid meal, no carbs beyond what's in the shakes/clean food. My total calorie intake is not supposed to exceed 950-1000/day. I am so sick of it. I think my body might be too, and that's why it's kind of stuck? I'm only down 2lbs from my last appointment on 12/21/17, and I had lost 26lbs from my November appointment to the December one. I'm really, REALLY worried that the surgeon is gonna change her mind if I don't have more weight loss by my appointment. :-(

Every surgeon is different but sounds like you've been doing good and hopefully they see that also a 2lb weightloss is still a weightloss and alot look for maintain or loss so hopefully all will be good x

Anyone else scheduled for January 2018? I have my surgery scheduled for January 11. I'm having to wait until next year because I had a stent put in back in December 2016. The anesthesiologist won't sign off until I have had the stent for at least a year and am able to come off of Plavix for the surgery.

Yes! I’m scheduled for January 11th also. I’m getting a little nervous but much more excited. I wish you all the best on surgery day and in the future..

I think it all depends on what type of coverage is negotiated by your employer.

I have Kaiser and I had to go through 12 week of classes before I could even get a consult with bariatric surgeon. I received my surgery date at my consult. If you do not have to take any classes, support group class or a psych evaluation then you are lucky. I thought that all of that was the standrd now to go through prior to be pproved for any bariatric surgey.

Oh wow! Is this the standard for everyone!?! Anyone???

My surgery is in two days so Excited and getting nervous! My pre op diet went well I got the Premier Protein pre made and it tastes good. I am now on the clear liquid until tomorrow. Every time I got hungry I drank more Water it helped and stepping on the scale every few days seeing the weight loss really motivated me. I’m down 16 lbs before surgery. Seahawks Fan you’ll do great! Keep it touch. And I’ll keep posting as I go along too. Best of luck to everyone we are on our way to new beginnings..

Hey New4me2,

I'm on the 11th too! Today is my last day to eat. I'm doing 2 Protein Shakes and a salad, tomorrow is Clear Liquids. Down 8 lbs. Not much but I wasn't required to lose anything.

I am struggling right now with everything not sure how I should finish my two last weeks

I did 4 weeks on full liquid - no cheat until dec 18

then I got delayed to jan 22nd with instructions of no fat no sugar as much as possible. Just about everything got fat / sugar so yea, lovely. I don't know if i should try to go liquid even if the nurses just said i can eat normally

My daily meals looks like this: 1x Premier Protein, 1x Protein Bar, 1x egg + Tomato + chicken stock, cauliflower + 1 low fat sausage + chicken stock, 1x greek yogurt , 1x fat free pudding + Protein (1/2 cup)

I make sure I have plenty of protein every day in my 3 last week I didn't regain any weight I lost but didn't lose anymore

Hi Keira Fae,

The liquid diet is tough but try to stick with it as best you can, you can do it it’s only two weeks, think about how great your going to feel as the weight starts to come off! The future will be full of new adventures, excitement and energy..
