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 .

        yeahhhhhh we are only 3 months apart on the sleeve journey. I found it has been way easier to lose with the sleeve than it was with the band...... although i loved my band. Sleeve was the easiest SX i ever had too.....

      TOMORROW IS MY DAY! (note this did not post properly so I am still  posting it after the fact)
      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.

      Today I said I’m an XS or size 8 (Aust) at a clothing store. I never thought I’d say those words and say them with confidence. And when I commented a dress was too big on me I was told it was the smallest size. As was the belt I wanted. 
       
      I tried on a slim fitting singlet dress yesterday & was shocked to realise the lumpy bits on the dress were my hip bones. I have an hour glass shape so I always had hips but never ones that stuck out on the front of my body! 

      I’ve been a size 10 before - for about 5 minutes. While I am now confident about saying I’m an 8, clothes shopping is all still a bit freaky for me. It’s not that I’m focussed on the size on the label. I’m well aware the cut/line of the clothes and the designer’s style will dictate what size I need or if it will suit my body shape. The size is the starting point & it’s starting at an 8/XS/38 which is a big mind set change. It’s thinking a pair of pants will be too small & discovering they are almost too big. 

      While I’m still coming to terms with my actual new body shape and size, I’m very happy to be in this new reality.

        ...ah! I see you are from Brisbane! We lived there for a year when Mr. got a work contract there.

        I have fond (and not-so-fond, lol) memories of the weather there this time of year. It it crazy hot yet?

      3. Arabesque

        Hit 42degress last weekend but this week has been in the rather pleasant low 30s (relatively of course😜). Could still wear jeans but thank goodness for air conditioning. Worse is the drought. Everything is dying or dead. Very sad & depressing.

      4. ms.sss

        I feel ya.

      Meal replacement shakes are soooooo good when you have a sore throat and don't feel good enough to cook. Plus, I always have lots of them at home. So I'm not tempted to grab crap from McDonalds (which has the best cold "medication").

      This morning I had an abdominal ultra sound because apparently my cholesterol keeps rising.
      I don’t get it. My cholesterol was always fine & now when I eat less of everything & have lost weight it starts to go up.

      My intake of fats & oils has decreased (not that I was a big fried food person before anyway) & not just because I eat way less. Always cut the fat of meats, still don’t eat bacon, use spray olive oil instead of regular oil. Even the tub of butter in my fridge has been there since before May. Lol.
      I just don’t get it? Is it because I don’t eat anywhere near the amount of vegetables I ate before? It surely can’t be because I eat a piece of cheese every day which I didn’t before? Are all my hormones screwed up? 
      Sigh!

        Cholesterol seems to be odd that way. I've got a suuuuper skinny brother-in-law who has sky high cholesterol. So don't let the whole "overweight" thing fool you. They seem to find it in people who have the genetic predispositions for it nowadays it seems. Our bodies are really still a mystery of how they react to certain changes. Just keep at it and keep talking to your doctor. Who knows, you could be a medical mystery?!? Embrace the challenge.

        Think of it this way, you now have an excuse to try ostrich meat! http://safariostrich.co.za/2016/06/ostrich-meat-benefits/

        PS. Gah hormones!

      2. Arabesque

        My dietician thinks it may be the regulatory hormones too & that my liver & gall could be having a freak out from the weight loss. It may be causing my low BP too. Hopefully the abdominal ultra sound will show something when I get the results.
        My maternal grandmother had issues which developed in her 70s but she’s the only one. No heart probs, no cholesterol worries in any one else (incl 13 aunts & uncles & my parents) - cancer seems to be our worry - sad face. And they still live into the 80s & 90s.
        Just strange that for 53 yrs my levels have been normal & 6months of weight loss & it’s now high.
        Don’t know about eating ostrich though that could just be burying my head in the sand - tee hee hee.

      3. Arabesque

        PS - My menopausal symptoms are still MRI. Even with a 42.5 degree day (108F) last Friday not a twinge of a hot flush. Best non scale victory ever. Guess you win some hormonal battles but lose others.

        PPS - Wrapping Christmas presents with air con cranked up today even though it’s only 33C. Ho ho ho
