January 2018 Sleevers HERE



Recommended Posts

Sleeved Jan 12th, down 43 lbs and I eat a varied diet and that includes a glass of wine, small but nutritionally sound meals and added whey Protein that adds only a few calories and 11 grams of protein which dissolves in my hot tea. I love sushi but prefer it wrapped in cucumber vs rice, no bread, no Pasta, just poultry, filet and hibachi veggies. I do like a weight watchers chocolate ice cream from time to time. I also like the the electrolyte drops to help super charge hydration. Track all my food in Fitness Pal. Love those weekly reports. Keep up the good work... we all are on this journey together.

Hi, everyone! It seems like Spring May have finally arrived here in NW Indiana, lol. After 2 days of snow last week I’m loving the 61degrees today

I was sleeved 1/30/18. Started at 320 and am 265 today. Though I’m happy to be losing, I feel like it’s harder than I expected. My first goal is 199 by my Birthday on Halloween. I’ll go 2 weeks and lose nothing then lose 5 pounds in 2 days. Worried I won’t make my goal at this rate. I know it’s gonna ping time o slow down even more.

Hello January sleevers...Praise God I was sleeved on the 19th starting weight 244 current 194. It has not been an easy journey. I'm still having old cravings that doesn't want to die...its a challenge. I push myself to exercise 3 times a week at least 30 mins to an hour....trying to target the stubborn stomach belly fat and trying to keep the buttocks area from leaving...lol I had a stall a few weeks ago but now im back to loosing...I think. I still struggle with certain foods...refried Beans mashed potatoes bacon chicken and salad sit well with me thus far. I tried a little Spanish rice and it settled. But I hope and pray we all come through this with SUCCESSFUL results. Keep praying keep taking your Vitamins keep track of your food intake and reminder...as much as we desire faster results...we have come a long way verses if we were still trying to do it the old fashioned way..embrace your 20..25..30 pound lose that has happened within weeks or a few months.

Just checking in with a little positivity. I have been extremely lucky so far and am down 105 lbs since January. My only struggle was until just recently getting enough Water intake. Kept waking up at night or in the morning with dry mouth. I have been walking 2-3 miles a day 5-6 times per week and lifting a few weights. There have been a couple periods where I don't lose for a week and then it comes off quickly. My doctor said 2 lbs a week should be a goal on average. I am back to eating normal foods(no bread, no rice and only the occasional wrap for a subway sandwich. My diet consists mostly of oatmeal for Breakfast, Protein Shake at lunch, then a normal meal for dinner(meat & veggies).

Have zero regrets on having the surgery. I didn't have any health problems prior to, just wanted to lose the weight. I did notice my blood pressure went down 30%, almost too low now(:)). But that was mostly because of my lifetime of tobacco use that no longer happens.

I just got back from vacation, doctor told me I could have a little alcohol, and I did. I didn't experience getting tipsy like a lot of people mentioned you would. I did notice that my weight stays the same every time I have a few drinks, so I am going to have to keep my cocktails to a minimum to hit my goal.

Keep up your faith and discipline. The weight loss will happen.
