OCTOBER SLEEVERS CHECK IN HERE



Recommended Posts

Hi! I had my surgery 10/3. Before the liquid diet, I was 212 at 5’3”. Surgery date was 207. This morning I’m 181.6. I know some may think this is slow progress, but I’m ecstatic!

I was also sleeved on the 17th and have slowed down and stalled and go up and down daily now. I am at about 22# total since the surgery date. No problems with my recovery and went back to work in a week. Everyone notices my weight loss which gets awkward because I have told only a handful of people what I had done. I guess in that sense I'm glad the weight loss is going slower. Clothes are fitting better and my belly is much smaller! I too had a lot of "hunger" the second and third week, but my surgeon reassured me that this was impossible since he had essentially removed my stomach. He said it was stomach acid and juices which makes sense because as soon as I take a drink of anything it stops.

Good morning!

I was sleeved 10/10/17 and down 21lbs do far. No complications or nausea and I'm on soft foods. This surgery has been a blessing. I did have a weak moment when my employer treated us to lunch and I had SOME cheese cake. My former greedy self would've eaten it ALL. Lol. I'm embarrassed to say, but I have not been walking. I probably could've lost more weight. Today is a new day though...

And, I'm having trouble meeting my fluid goals.

SW: 280

CW: 259

Wishing you all the best :)

I was sleeved on 10/25/17. I'm only down 8-9 pounds and I have already hit a stall. I feel like I should be further along than this.

I have started my pureed diet. I have not experienced issue with tolerating foods. I feel like my sleeve was not made small enough.

Trying to stay positive but this is so discouraging.

I haven't been walking either. At work, I don't even have a chance to go out and walk. It's been so busy. I barely get up to go to the bathroom and to get some Water. I'm still at a stall - I think it's been 2 weeks now with no loss - I gained 3 lbs wth? I'm so upset I don't even want to weigh myself anymore. I have PCOS and I have been struggling with my weight for the past 7 years. I wasn't diagnosed with it until 3 years ago. I was put on Metformin and Spironolactone and finally my scale stopped going up. But I couldn't lose. I stayed the same weight for the last 2.5 years. I finally had surgery on 10/17 lost the first 2 weeks and once I went back to work, I have not lost anything. I started taking my Metformin and Spironolactone again 2 days ago. Will see my surgeon on Friday. I won't be weighing myself until then.

I don't count calories. I'm just drinking 2 Protein Shakes a day which are 160 calories each and about 60 oz Water. I have a yogurt and a cheese stick and some chicken broth or tuna salad.

I was sleeved on 10/18/2017. Everything is going great. Started running one week post op. Running 5Ks now and doing dumbbell work outs. I've lost 16 pounds post-op. (I had lost 37 pounds pre-op.) Yesterday my endocrinologist took me off all diabetes meds and I'm off high blood pressure meds, too. Weight loss stalled around days 9-15 but is now creeping down again I'm eating around 1,500 calories a day. I've gained one pound of muscle mass. Eating a little ahead of my schedule but no issues at all. Can feel the restriction with the more solid foods. Have lost 6 inches in my pants size and am starting to buy new clothes. My confidence is up and I am happy. Enjoyed being with my wife last night and it felt sooo much better not having my big belly in the way! I will run a 5K race on Thanksgiving.

Sleeved on 10/18/2017.

I was sleeved on Oct 11, which is a month today! I am eating fine, I’ve only eaten too much twice, but it sure isn’t pleasant! I am taking in around 1100 cals a day and 100 grams Protein. I know that’s a lot but it’s working for me. I can workout as well as before surgery, but weak. I’m having problems wanting to eat at night, but I stay within my calorie range.

I was sleeved 10/16/17, had the wonderful (sarcasm) 3rd week stall last week, scale didn't move for 6 days. Yesterday, finally down 2 lbs from where I had been all week, and this morning down 1 lb from that. I'm still on the puree diet which is getting pretty old, but it's part of my plan so I am sticking with it. Next week I'll be able to have soft foods, moist chicken/fish/turkey, etc and steamed vegetables, which I am looking forward to. Exercising regularly, having to buy new clothes (just enough to get me through the next few weeks, not a whole wardrobe), and getting comments quite often about how great I look. A friend of mine that I hadn't seen in about 4 months walked by me the other night and didn't recognize me until I stopped her, so that was pretty cool. Still have 65lbs or so to GW, but happy with the progress so far. The weight wasn't put on overnight, and will not come off overnight. It's a journey, and it's been a great one so far.

Great attitude! You've got this thing licked!

        Does anything blow up? That's usually a requirement for me B)

      2. allwet

        lol no but lots of things get broken

      In prep for my 1 year follow up the surgeon sent me for lab work and my B6 came back way way to high. So they asked me to stop taking B6. so now i am looking for a way to cover the B vitamins without B6. I was taking a sublingual multi B liquid.

      1. Orchids&Dragons

        That's weird that you take them all in one dose and only one gets elevated. Maybe they should repeat that particular blood work?

      2. allwet

        did a search both on this site and google and found a lot of hits on just that issue - high B6 when taking multi B supplement. Including 1 NIH study that found 17/68 sleeve patients in the study had elevated B6.

        going to stop the liquid multi B and just use the chewable Centrum Silver for a few months then retest

      3. Orchids&Dragons

        That's interesting. Is it just a sleeve issue or is that just what you were searching for?

      4. allwet

        on this site it was sleeve specific but on google it was more wide spread among people that were daily users of supplements and the gov't study was a sleeve study for vitamin deficiencies that found oddly B6 went up more than it went down post op

      NSV: yesterday a business man came into to see one of the bosses. He gave me a candy bar first and then the paperwork. I said I would be sure to give to supervisor. he says no candy is for you. I said its ok, he was , NO ITS FOR YOU. I said thank you , that I had had weight surgery so I tend to stay away from candy. He looked at me up and down and said you don't need surgery (probably didn't understand what I had said).  It's nice knowing that I look fit enough to where I would not need one, lol. Working out 25 out of 31 days definitely helps!

      Day 1 of the pre-op liquid diet is underway. I was able to have my last cup of coffee for a while this AM and have been drinking Vitamin Water Zero and water since, I definitely have to pee a lot!
