November sleevers here



Recommended Posts

I get a bit discouraged because I stalled a long time ago and can't seem to break through but then I look back at this pic of me doing a 5k at 276 pounds where I came in dead last and the other pic of me from a 5k last weekend at 215 pounds and finishing with relative ease and I realize how far I've come. I will not give up, I will get over this slump, and I will resist the Halloween candy!

Hit goal today! 127! Trying for more now that I hit this goal, but very pleased. If you haven’t hit goal yet I am here to tell you it is possible! And even throw in a progress photo from last month(left) to yesterday (right). Even small changes are changes!

I thought my weight loss might be about done -- still more than pounds from my goal at 173. I didn't lose for the past month. Still, I was thankful to have lost 70 pounds and with my new lifestyle of eating healthier and daily exercise. Then this past week I dropped another three pounds all the sudden. So just to encourage folks who may be slowing that we can still lose more if we just stick to healthy habits. Good luck to everyone!

Wishing all of you November Sleevers the best of luck in your surgery and recovery!

Getting weight loss (bariatric) surgery was easily one of the best decisions I’ve ever made—after choosing to go to medical school.

It gave me renewed life.

We are the 2017 sophomoric class, I think everyone here is doing fantastic and crushing goals! Congrats to you as well and welcome to the boards!

      I'm struggling a little. My younger sister wants to go out to a buffet for Thanksgiving so no one has to cook and stress. While I appreciate her sentiment, I also don't want to pay $65 a head (4 ppl in my family) especially since I can't eat much AND buffets are so difficult to deal with overeating. I told my sister after thinking about it that buffets aren't okay for me. She seemed to understand, but was disappointed. Am I being selfish by not going along with the plan? I purchased a turkey to cook and I can make sides that are bariatric friendly. Sigh, this one is bothering me. I might be emotionally low right now because my dog passed away recently and that is contributing to my thinking.

        Sorry about your pup. That's a real grief you need to allow yourself to express.

        So $65 for each person is hefty. We couldn't afford that for TG for 4. But buffets don't freak me. I wouldn't even pay--just sneak a bite or two off a plate here or there. No biggie. But doing a restaurant or keeping food simple is also what works for most.

        Sorry you're having a tough time about the upcoming holiday. Remember, our joy will mostly be with being with those we love.

      2. Orchids&Dragons

        So sorry about the dog. It is so hard when they pass.

        Yes, that $65 is super steep. You'd really be paying $260 for 3 people to eat and you to watch. Yikes! And I'm sure they wouldn't let you in without paying. Maybe just beg your sis to put it off until next year when you might be able to enjoy it too? I mean, honestly, you've already got the darn turkey. You're still a work in progress and you sure don't want to throw up in the restaurant. Maybe thinking about it that way will help your sister understand. By next Thanksgiving, you'll be far more sure of what you can handle and what you can't.

        Good luck.

        Losing a pet is terrible, and it's OK to be sad. ❤️

        Taking care of yourself is also OK--better than OK!--and if you're offering to cook, that means your sister doesn't have to cook or stress, which is kind of what she was after, anyway? So you don't need to feel bad about this.

        I can definitely imagine going to a buffet again, even though I don't eat much, but we're talking, like $10 Indian lunch buffet, not $65 (holy crap) Thanksgiving buffet! And I'll probably always favor non-buffets, since not eating part of my meal immediately just means I get to enjoy it later on (or my spouse does). It feels like less pressure, or something.

        Anyway, I'm babbling. I think you're doing the right thing, here. I hope your sister is cool about it.

      One Week Post Op today! I feel great and almost walking back to normal. I have learned in this short week to not drink your dinner protein shake at a constant sipping. I spent 30 min the last two nights trying to release the pressure in my chest. Lesson Learned! I am back down to Surgery Date Weight as of this morning, actually half a pound less. Now to look forward to actual losses LOL. I guess i had a lot of gas and liquids that are taking time to leave my body. Its all good, it will be gone eventually! I have no regrets, and take each day as it comes and look forward to the next stage next Thursday, and getting my stitches out on Tuesday.
