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!

      Went to my initial consult with the Bariatric surgeon/ program I chose. Came home with a folder full of information & helpful organization of all the testing that needs to be completed while I complete the required nutritional counseling. She also let me know my insurance typically takes 6 weeks to reply with authorization when submitted, so that puts my potential surgery date near the new year if all stays on track  I felt comfortable with her, in our discussions she agrees that I am a good candidate for the Gastric Bypass. I appreciated the 'introduction' class that was given after the consult with the surgeon where I was given this binder of every referral (from her, not my pcp referrals), & contact information for all the testing needed to make my contacts/calls tomorrow morning even easier I start my nutrition classes on June 5th, so that's when the clock will start toward insurance approval & getting the tool to help me reach my goals

      Day 5 post-op... didn't sleep great last night, lots of gas pain and it was my first night without using the rx pain meds. I'm tired and feeling rather stupid. My nurse is supposed to call today for a check in, so I'm debating taking a nap now and risk missing her call, or forcing myself to stay awake and pray she calls soon. Also, showering should be considered a workout... just doing the basics used up all my energy. Weight is slowly working its way down. I know that I shouldn't be on the scale yet, but I couldn't resist. I'm down almost 9lb down since surgery. Yay!

        I use benefiber everyday in my water. it is flavorless. On days when I get a little backed up I use Miralax. It works great without any cramping.
