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

My surgery date was 8/25 that was a rough day. Each day better and better. I'm able to hold down fluids . Got discharged yesterday . My only issue now is that I have to stay on top of my pain medicine. So far so good.

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.

      Saw the surgeon yesterday. He is very pleased with my loss thus far. I am averaging about 10 lbs a month. Turns out my nutritionist and my surgeon have vastly differing ideas on how many calories I should be eating right now. Nut put me on 1K a day. Surgeon said nope, they are wrong, go to 800/day. Too bad I have been following what the Nut advised. I could have lost more weight already. Oh well, I will do it now! I am also going to add another day of working out to help break this stall I have been in since 8/28. I am very happy as this week I was able to get into a size XL shirt and I am wavering on pants sizes, but I am wearing a lot of size 18 that are too big or are getting too big. The inches are still dropping off nicely. I saw my parents for the first time after a long time this past weekend (they live out of state) and my Dad who never says anything gave me some super nice compliments. My sister also did...her words as we were trekking through the airport on a long upward ramp were along the lines of "Before the mind was willing but the body wasn't. Now your mind and body are in sync. Before we would have had to have stopped at least once and now you aren't even phased by this." What a great thing to have someone recognize.

        I was there yesterday too! My appointment was at 1:30pm. And its crazy that they told you 800 calories per day, when they told me 1k yesterday, but I've got my own agenda lol.

      Had my final pre-op appointment today. Next Wednesday my liquid diet starts. It's getting real.

      Has anyone reading this lied about your weight just to get the surgery done?

        The surgeons office will weigh you pre authorization for surgery. How do you lie?

      2. MargoCL

        How can you lie, like @skinnylife stated they weigh you at the surgeon's office and throughout each of your pre-op steps. There is no lying in this, everything is documented, double checked, etc.

      3. Coachthex32

        I had to gain 20 lbs. Makes no sense. High Blood Pressure, almost diabetic, and sleep issues (stop breathing in the night).

      4. Leia

        I dont think I could have if I wanted to, they'd been weighing me regularly for 6+ months before the surgery, and then again the day of.

       I don't know what to do for my birthday being that I just had weight loss surgery I know that I have a lot to be grateful for

        What would you normally do?

        Instead of planning a meal, what about an activity that you enjoy.

        If the weather is nice, plan a picnic and explain that you are not eating and will not be providing a cake instead if you wanted you could have birdseed bags that people could use to feed the birds or the ducks in a pond at the park where the picnic would be held. Everyone could bring their own lunch if they wanted to attend and you would only have to make little birdseed bags.

        If nature walks are more your style, do something along those lines and just let everyone know that for your birthday you are planning an activity and not a party. There will be no cake and ice cream if that is what they are looking for, they can just stay home.

        You could ask your friends to join you in a day of caring and you could all volunteer together somewhere either serving at a soup kitchen, helping at a shelter or a children's center or even a senior center.

      I managed to finally break my old school manual Italian espresso maker... Is this a sign?

        Of what?

      2. GreenTealael

        Of what indeed. I thought at first I should give up coffee, nonsense.h Then I thought I should go out for coffee with friends more. Then I thought I should go to Italy for coffee with friends and get a new maker...
