August Sleevers-How are you doing??



Recommended Posts

Hey August 2017 sleevers ... how are you all doing? Today is anniversary + 3 weeks (I was sleeved on Aug 22, 2017) and today was a HUGE milestone: I reached normal BMI. I've officially lost 102.8 pounds with a BMI of 24.8. I'm so frickin' excited I can't stand it!

I was sleeved the same day as you a year later 8-7-18, I have lost 25lbs so far, I feel I am at a stall. I feel the same, a little depressed, I know I did this for the right reasons and I am hoping when progress starts and I see it and feel it I will be more happy with the decision.

Congratulations!!! I can only dream of hitting a normal BMI! I still have 4-6 kg (10ish pounds) to go! That is such an amazing milestone! You must celebrate!!!

I had sleeve on Nov 6th I've lost around 120lbs so far but I had to have foot surgery and I can't even get up off the couch for the last 4 weeks. It will be awhile before I can start waking again and my weight loss had stopped completely. I'm so worried that it won't start again. I still need to lose another 50 lbs at least before I reach my goals. I've also noticed more Hunger pains lately. I sure hope I don't go back to my old eating habits... I'm so stressed out and worried... 😓

I had my switch done on 7Aug18 and I must admit I feel 100% better at this point other than extreme fatigue here and there I’m 5 weeks out and 40 lbs down I know I need to increase my Proteins intake I really don’t eat much at all once a day maybe other than that pristine shakes and crystal light and Water I have tried salmon and that was fine and I have tried a few other things cooked for me but that desire to eat is not there. I do struggle with moderate diarrhea with burning but not sure if that is something all goes through when I called the med assistant said it’s normal but never said for how long and how long will my gas be wet gas. But over all I am good I go back in about a month in a half to get hernia repaired then I’ll be done with all surgery

      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.

        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.

        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...
