Sleeved on Nov. 1.

Recovery room was rough and I threw up a couple times. After that I was wheeled to a room and slept for several more hours. All total I slept 12 hours post op. People kept talking to me but I was so out of it. I don't remember my husband kissing me and going home for the night.

I finally woke up at 9pm and drank some chicken broth and walked 2 miles in laps around my ward. Sipped Water. Then I konked back out.

I was up every 45 minutes going pee all night long.

Woke up the next day (today) and felt great. Walked over 4 miles throughout the day waiting for hubby to pick me up at 5p. The staff was calling me marathoner. I inspired other patients to get up and walk with me.

I had a small cup of yogurt and some tomatoes Soup and a premier chocolate shake throughout the day.

Good luck to all three other November sleevers.

Wow you are really inspiring! Congratulations, you are knocking this out of the park! How's your pain level? Do you feel like the walking helped with the pain?

No pain yet. They were putting pain meds in my IV every few hours. I'll let you know how I feel tomorrow after being home and the meds have worn off. Walking was a breeze. No passing gas yet either unless I did it in my sleep.

You'll do great. Just remember to take care of yourself and only do what you feel comfortable and able to do. I walked a lot of loops around the ward because I felt good enough to do so. Other patients joined me and would walk one or two loops and that was plenty for them. Also take your time. Walk at a comfortable pace. It's not a race. Also sip sip sip on your Water.

Take whatever comfort items to need with you. I brought my special blankie, pajamas, robe, slippers, brush, toothbrush and toothpaste, chap stick, meds (which was the only thing I didn't use), phone and charger, and a couple extra undies.

This is awesome, thank you! I just picked up my meds from the pharmacy so I'm good to go on that. Did you bring those little ounce cups home with you to measure your Fluid intake?

Yes as a matter of fact, the nurse gave me a stack of about a dozen of them! She says it should take 10 minutes to drink one down.

      Okay, I finally took another picture of myself. I don't see much change in my appearance but I realize we don't always see ourselves realistically! So here it is:

      I'm struggling. I've been stalled now for a couple weeks. I haven't really been tracking my food like I should be. I haven't been to the gym. Both things I know are bad. I logged my food for today and I'm sitting right around 1,200 calories and 115 grams of protein. 60 carbs. I'm not sure if I should be aiming for less calories at this point. Hmmm.... well. I will def be hitting the gym next week, hard. I'd say this week, but I'm swamped with stuff after work everyday. It's just not feasible. I have been staying extremely active though. Also, cutting out all fruit this week. Here's a pic from this past weekend!

        thank you! All and all I feel great, I just know that I should still be loosing and when I remember, "hey! you aren't done yet!" then I get down on myself.

      2. Orchids&Dragons

        Honestly, Ash! You are young, pretty and in love! What is there to be down about?

      3. allwet

        Just ride this stall out AshAsh your numbers are fine. Do try to track more often but other than that just keep the faith it will break.

      4. KimTriesRNY

        You’ve lost a lot in a short amount of time. A stall is bound to happen sooner or later. Get back to tracking as a priority! You look great, and more progress will follow. It’s not a sprint with over a hundred pounds to lose, we have to learn to accept our bodies will take a break every now and then.

      5. Sleeved36

        Don't be so hard on yourself. Life happens and you have to deal with life. Even if you don't make it to the gym, go for a little walk in the evening. It will help your stress level and not make you feel bad about skipping the gym.

        You have made amazing progress and look great!

        Stalls are the worst and it is hard to be patient. The scale will keep moving just keep going!

       I just started the process for the gastric sleeve. A lot of requirements to complete within the six months. I’m looking for a good website  that can give me an idea of how I should eat during these months beforehand.  Haven’t received that information from the nutritionist yet that won’t be till next month. Thank you for your time.

        cant give you web site but the food is easy. start cutting the sugar. start cutting the simple carbs. Increase your veggie intake. Learn to love water (lol)

        you will get a specific pre op diet later depending on program, huge variation from surgeon to surgeon.

        depending on your food addictions, and you will be finding you do have them, parts of this can be harder than others.

        i stopped the sugary sweets easy but the bread nearly killed me (jk)

        good luck and grats on getting started.

      NSV today. I have been wearing my size 26 jeans which have been getting roomy. So today I decided to try on my size 24 Lane Bryant jeans and see if I could get into them. Not only can I get into them, they are also loose. That made me feel super happy this morning. Weight is still 243 but the inches are definitely moving.

        Awesome! Congrats! You'll be out of the 20's in no time!

      Tried a few bites of pasta (protein-enriched penne) tonight. No foamies or anything, but didn't sit well. I'm sad about it, but at least now I know and can move on to trying other things, maybe revisit it when I'm further out.
