January 2017 sleevers



Recommended Posts

Nothing really new to report on my end. Did the low carb thing again and didn't really see any changes. Back to the usual diet again. Don't think I'm going to see the scale move anytime soon unless I can get my not as big as it used to be ass back outside and walking on a regular basis. It's in the mid 30s today so feels like a heat wave! Hoping my upcoming job change will see me being more active again and help get things moving.


Keep it up. Don’t give up.

Let’s try to check in with each other on this thread at least once a month. This is a life journey. We can do this [emoji1434][emoji1434]




Yes let’s check in!!! We all can do this! I know I need to focus more on that last 20 pounds. I have decided to take it 5 pounds at a time. Increase my fluids and start walking.

Two weeks to go until I start my new job. Hoping that since I'll be away from the desk more it'll get me to help being more active. My body is in love being at 235 lbs and doesn't want to move away from that for whatever damned reason. Driving me insane! Spring is on the horizon and ready to put this damned winter behind us to get back outside and do more.

Doing good here. Down about 85 pounds since surgery and about 120 since I started my WLS journey. Really wanted to hit 225 at the one year mark but didn't happen. Hoping with an upcoming job change that takes me away from a desk job to being more mobile that will help spark things again.

Got off to a rough start after surgery and the first month was hell, but pretty smooth sailing since then. It is hard to believe how quickly the past year has gone. Been a fun ride! [emoji3]

Awesome job!!! Keep it up. The goal is within reach. Good luck with the job change.

Surgery January 11th 2017

HW 138 kg (304lbs)

SW 127 kg (280lbs)

CW 75 kg (165lbs)

Love my life!!! I have gotten so much more energy. No food is of limits (some food is off limits sometimes). I have switched from the wish to become smaller and less towards working to become more. I have found an amazing bodypositivity community out there that I believe will help me maintain this positive world view :-) Self love is so important.

Finally broke the 100lbs mark. Down 102 and still going. Working out 6 days a week 1-3 hrs a day depending on the classes that are offered. Trying to increase Water intake. I’ve never been able to do a gallon a day. Still doing low carb but have add more carbs to my diet. Doing Herbalife shakes , teas and liftoff tablets for energy. Starting taking Ginko Biloba for metal alertness. I feel fuzzy brain at times. Did Iron infusions back last summer have been doing pretty well since

Hey there! I found your pictures to be very motivating. I had my sleeve done October 2016 and lost 65 lbs initially and have gained about 15 lbs back. I know I am not doing what I should be doing. I had an gym knee injury after already have my ACL replaced that kind of threw me off my journey. My goal is to lose another 35 lbs. I see you are doing the low carb or no carb thing and I was thinking about that myself. Do you mind sharing some tips, what to eat and what not to eat? Whatever you can share is appreciated. I just need to find my groove again so I can finally meet my goal! Thanks in advance!

Just Checking in with you all. Summer is here! How is everyone doing in their journey? I’ve stayed the same haven’t really lost or gained just maintaining. Still going to the gym 5-6 lx a week. Have fallen off a few times with eating breads, haven’t had sweets im kinda afraid they will make me ill. I’m at a stall but I haven’t been as strict as before. I find I can consume more which I don’t like. Lol. I’ve been taking collagen powder to help with loose skin, anyone else try this?

I am enjoying life. I am stabilizing on 63 kg loss and a healthy weight between 75 and 80 kg. I train 3 times a week and use my bicycle for transportation. I have incorporated all foods into my diet and I'm working hard on accepting my body and loving everything it can do <3 I have worn shorts and bared my jiggly leggs to the world :-D

Vacation was amazing had a great time. I wore shorts and even a pair of white pants that I haven’t done in years. Came back have had kidney stones ( again) then started having knee problems so had to cut out a lot of my workouts but still trying. Going to Physical therapy for my knee so hopefully back at it soon. I’m up 6 lbs since all this and I hate it. Hoping it’s from Fluid on my knee and steroids. Still trying to eat right How is everyone doing?

Since coming back from vacay I suffered knee pain later finding out I have a torn Meniscus and I had surgery Dec 2018. Still having pain and trying to slowly get back in gym. My diet hasn’t been the best and can’t exercise as much as before. I have gain 8lbs since surgery and can’t seem to lose it. 😢 feeling discouraged for the first time since my sleeve .

      TOMORROW IS MY DAY!
      I am so very excited! My sister is here with me and my son. I am so excited. My anesthesiologist called me tonight to discuss our plans for tomorrow. I am not feeling nervous at all. Just excited for the future!
      I did buy a few bottles of CFpreop which is really suppose to help you stay hydrated. It's pricey but I feel it's worth it. I tried the Watermelon tonight. I have to stop all liquids after midnight and I go into the hospital at 5:30am for check in. My surgery is at 8am.
      SO HAPPY for this journey!
      You can get the CFpreop on Amazon if anyone is interested. It comes in Watermelon and White Grape.

      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.

      2. Krestel

        Ohh..I love fisherman's friend..especially the sugar-free ones. Here, we can get it in all the shops. They are strong though.

      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
