8/25/17 sleeve updates



Recommended Posts

Same boat as you - surgery was 8/24 and I stopped losing about a week ago. I'm tired, kinda cranky and not losing weight...can't wait for this stage to end. Good luck!

Yeah it's been rough.
I am thinking "why am I starving myself, have no energy and the scale isn't moving"

Checking in again. It's been 3 weeks since surgery. Worked this past week and eating a high Protein soft foods diet. Feeling pretty good. Stamina coming back, but the scale doesn't change. Going a bit crazy. I feel like I'm the one that this won't work for. Everyone says to be patient...

I am still really tired. It's probably because I'm still not getting in all of my Water (usually 24-32oz/day) and Protein (30-40gr protein/day). I'm also cranky, which isn't helping. And to make matters more fun, the scale hasn't really moved in 8 days or so. Maybe down 1 lb in that time. I'm eating the tiniest portions ever. How is this possible that I'm not losing? I'm so baffled. And tired. And cranky.

Mine was 8/29 and weight loss only a few pounds. Gets very frustrating for me as well, I keep hoping that this will all be worth it in the long run. I hope so

I'm a week out with hernia repair as well. Stomach is only bruised at the main incision. In first or second week did anyone try straining Soups to drink? I'm tired of broth already! shakes are still hard to get in throughout the day. I just bought some genpro that helps to get in the Protein needed. I love popcicles, so have those to help with my Fluid intake and made some popcicles out of my shake mixture, so that should help too. Good luck everyone!

I'm right there with you. My doctor recommended one Protein Shake a day to make sure you get to 50gr of Protein a day. So I have that for Breakfast everyday and get it out of the way. I have to hope that at some point the weight will start to come off. I literally weigh the same thing for the last 10 days. Hope to check in again next week with better news. Keep the faith.

I was sleeved 8/29. I did not lose weight before the surgery. I'm down 26lbs since surgery but I think that is because I did not lose pre-op. I'm eating about 500 calories and 60 grams Protein a day now. I'm trying to eat more but I can only manage a few bites of cottage cheese, everything else makes me feel like it is stuck. I have a shake, broth and popsicles. I found a broth with 9 grams of protein. I'm exhausted though.

      2 Days Till Surgery!   It's time! Time to start my clear liquids! I am prepared! Tomorrow I will only take in clear protein, bone broth and jello for the next two days.   My surgery will be done on Monday, December 9th at 8:00 AM. I have to be at the hospital at 5:30 AM (EWWW) but who cares? LOL. Funny how you don't get all upset about doing things that are not so fun when you are doing it for a purpose! . I don't plan on doing much this weekend. I have one errand to do and after that is over I will return to my hotel room and go into prayer and meditation. Believer or not, you got to do what you need to do in order to get your heart and mind in a healthy place. . I have a Pre-Op drink I ordered that is supposed to really help your body hydrate before surgery. It's not in the photo just because I don't have it in my hands yet. I will put photos of it up when I get it. . All I can think about it how blessed I am to be able to get this done. I know how it feels to be healthy and happy then have it snatched away. It makes this all the more joyful for me. . So, it's time to lay it down and start letting my mind process what we are getting ready to do. . By the way...funny story. My doc said he had to cancel a surgery because his patient said she thought "Mashed Potatoes" was a clear food! Um, there will be no mashed potatoes for me! LOL This is HAPPENING! . Last thought for today: I knew when they drew my blood yesterday it was going to leave a nasty bruise and I was right. I am so sensitive to that kind of stuff.

      Cold no.2 since surgery. The funny part is now Ive lost my voice. I feel better in my sinuses now, but my voice is 90% gone. Losing your voice as a person who talks as a teacher for a living is so funny. You feel normal and when you speak, nothing comes out. I hope it goes over by Monday, but if it doesn't oh well. Ill be at school and cant talk to the students. Oh gee darn.

        I hope it gets better. I sing and I know how it is to lose your voice. I always get scared that it won't come back. LOL but it always does. Try Fisherman's Friend. It's nasty but it works. You can find it on amazon.

      Got my haircut today and its always amazing how much better i feel afterwards.
      i have always considered it an odd thing that i enjoy a haircut so much.
      The smell of the barbershop (no salons allowed) and the whole scissors and clippers feel and sound is so relaxing.
      I have had the same barber since 1987 and i am not sure how i will handle it if that guy ever dares to die on me. I am pretty sure that the magazines on the bottom of the stack are the same ones from my first visit.
      just started Ron Powers -Mark Twain Biography- enjoying it
