August Sleevers-How are you doing??



Recommended Posts

My surgery was 3 days ago!! It's a life changing decision, let me tell you that!! It's all worth it, though!! I can barely drink Water like I used to.. can't even finish 60 cc in 15 mins





For me, more room temp milk and 1/4 juice 3/4 water go down the best. Same with broth.

I was operated on 8/14. First two days were horrible. Nausea and shoulder tip pain were annoying but faded away. Day three I became teary - no idea why, I think just used to food to comfort me when I'm unwell. Now onto puréed foods.. Lost 16.5 pounds in 13 days. First day back at work and all of a sudden I feel like I have reflux and the nausea is back :( confused and trying to work out what had brought it on...

Hi Crystal. Glad to hear you are feeling good! I'm so jealous you get to start puréed foods today. You only had to wait 7 days after surgery? Totally not fair lol. I guess I shouldn't complain. Starting today I can have yogurt, cream Soups and cottage cheese. Too scared to try any yet this morning but I'll let you know. Lol

Surgery August 7th. Recovery went pretty smooth. I'm more so disappointed that I haven't lost more in three weeks. Didn't lose anything this third week. But I'm thinking maybe it's because I didn't walk twice a day like I was doing prior and I know I'm awful about getting Protein in. Regular Water has been decent. It's kind of making me wish I had done the Mini Gastric Bypass like originally wanted instead of the sleeve. It's frustrating. I was talked out of MGB because so many people were concerned with how young I was and the quality of life going forward. Anyway, I'm just going to try my best. Back to the gym twice a day and focusing on liquids and Proteins. Hopefully that will result in a loss this week.

I am in desperate need of anything resembling real food. I get about 150 g of Protein a day and probably around 100 oz of food. I know some of my hunger is in my head but I would murder newborn puppies for some tuna or scrambled eggs. I can't really find any liquid appropriate foods I enjoy. One week till puree and broth is making me homicidal

Is that what you lost in a week? I think I've only lost about 6 lbs but I haven't pooped so in definitely retaining Water. I think I'm getting in a lot of calories for this stage (~1000) but it's what my body wants.

      Hey all! So I went in for my weight management class. I thought that would be my last one but I actually have to wait until the nutritionist clears me. She has to decide if I'm ready. I''m not mad at it. It looks like my surgery will be happening in the summertime. So instead of focusing on the surgery date, I'm putting my energy into losing weight and making sure all these appointments are taken care of. It feels like doing mini quests on a video game before trying to fight the BIG BOSS. I'm not ready for the BIG BOSS yet. haha. Feeling pretty good!

      Finished my 6th and final NUT appointment yesterday.  Everything is done except the psych eval and submittal to insurance.  I did everything required of me including the 100 pages plus of food tracking, I lost 5% of my total weight, and I went to every NUT appointment.  
      Hoping for the best, things seem to be lining up well for me and in the end, I think I will be able to fully have my wife on board with this whole thing.  She says she is, but I know she doesn't think I should do it.  Just like I replied to another post earlier, i'm doing this either way, it's my decision at this point and I know I can get her to come around at some point and maybe even convince her to look into it as well.
      Also, I just started with an APAP machine a couple weeks ago and "holy sh*t" has my quality of life improved greatly so far.  I wish I had looked into this years ago.  I didn't think I had apnea until I had the study done and i stopped breathing an average of 12 times an hour.  That's nuts...

      I'm 13 years out from having weight loss surgery. I would have to say it was the best choice I have ever made. I have been successful BUT now I'm feeling like I'm sliding back and getting comfortable with old eating habits. I absolutely do not want to ever go back to where I came from. I'm just needing support and some pointers to get me focused again. Any one have any thoughts or suggestions. Thank you in advance for any help you can give me.

        I’m new but I wish you luck in getting back on track. Maybe see a nutritionalist first.
