So, this is my reintroduction I had a sleeve done Feburary 2016. I lost roughly 115lbs. Felt great!

Recently I have slipped and regained weight.....time to regain control and finally reach my goal weight once and for all! So, I am back to the board for camaraderie and inspiration.

This week I am back to a liquid diet, much like being preop and I'm loving how tiny my sleeve feels !! Love it !! Time to take control back....once again...

Welcome back! You can do this. Sometimes we have to get back to the basics to stay on track. I haven't been sleeved, yet, but I will be on September 8th. I battle with pcos and crazy cravings. But, I know it's those stupid hormones being out of whack. Let's crush it together.

@Nurse_Lenora

i remember you:rolleyes:

sorry you gained some weight.

important thing is you are

acknowledging that you have/

had a problem.

doing liquids now is a great

jump start to loose some weight

at a rapid speed. (making you feel

good) then continue with all that

you learned as a newbie. (water,

protein, etc.)

turn around -support is always near by

good luck

I am with you. I haven't regained, but I feel I am losing slowly. I was sleeved on 1/24/17, and I've lost 55 lbs. However, I feel I should be further along. I've picked up some bad habits, and I've plateaued. It was meant for me tho Llog back on today ti see your getting back to basics post. Excellent idea to do the liquid diet again. Good luck to you!

55lbs since almost February is actually pretty good for a female since females tend to lose slower than males. Dont resort back to full liquids, its not sustainable long term. Simply start noticing the bad habbits that got you into the situation in the first place, Eating C.R.A.P. Carbonated drinks , Refined Sugars, Artificial flavorings and Alcohol, Processed foods..

Get back to eating 5 or 6 smaller meals a day of good, real food.

        It will be interesting to watch as this theory develops. Thanks for posting!

      Feel like it's time for a status update, I haven't been on here regularly in a while and I need to keep my mindset focused on my goals.
      I haven't weighed myself in ~ 3 weeks.  I think I'm becoming the opposite of "obsessive" about tracking my progress and it could cause me some issues.  The good thing is that there have still been quite a number of NSV's happening that is telling me that I'm still progressing without knowing what the scale says.
      First one is that a belt I bought about 5 weeks ago because all my other belts were too big is also on the last hole so I'll have to buy yet another belt again.  second, I bought new jeans about a month ago and I have a lot more slack in the waist than I did when I purchased them.  I also boarded a plane and had about 8 inches of slack in the belt.  Finally, I hit my goal last week of being able to ride go-carts with my kids.  The last time I tried about 4 years ago, I had to leave because I couldn't fit in the harness.  This was sweet victory and I showed those two how it was done on the race course!!  😈

      I just looked through all my old pants after my pre-op pants started getting to big. Keep in mind that I wear men's pants (usually cargos) because I am so tall 5'10"/5'11" ish. I also find that men's baggies tend to fit me better.
      I started out at a 44 in waist pant and quickly found that I was back down to my 42's. So even when thise got to be too big, I had to start pulling old clothes out of storage. After finding my 38's, I thought that these would not yet fit, but when I tried them on, they fit perfectly. I also found some older pants that now fit better than I remembered. What a relief! It's not like I can pop down to the store like I could do in the US and the styles here in Sweden are all skinnt jeans which I cant stand. I also found some 36's, but I'm not mentally ready to try those on yet. The biggest challenge will be buying women's clothing again.

      slow and steady wins the race.  don't get discouraged and just keep at it. Let your sleeve do its job and try not to stress yourself out.
      hope you are all having a great summer and enjoying what your sleeve has given you.
      just got back from a wedding in OR. and man am i afraid to get on the scale

        Great reminder about how fast you can lose weight. The mind games we play with ourselves are the worst.
