December Sleevers Check In!



Recommended Posts

These are the cheddar cheese Snacks by Cabot that I love, if anyone is interested. 50 calories, 6 grams of Protein, and they actually taste like sharp cheddar cheese (instead of those horrible string cheese which I find dry and waxy).

I am usually fine on Protein (2 shakes a day) but I struggle with the water

You could try putting some Crystal Light in it. I do and it seems to help me out alot.

My surgery was 12/27. I lost 15 on the 2 week pre-op but have only lost 16 since surgery! I’m 8 weeks out and stuck at current weight for the last 3 weeks. Trying to stay positive but really thought I would be further along at this point :(

I was sleeved on December 4. I lost 20 lbs pre surgery, and am down 20 lbs post surgery. My body fat seems to be dropping, but the scale is not moving. The losses feel slower than I was expecting, but I have also been doing more social eating than I had been doing in many months. So that's on me. I am back to Protein Shakes and veggies for the moment in order to get the scale to move again.

I haven't really had complications. Learning to eat slower has been a challenge, and learning that I still do not cope well with access to snacky foods (even ones considered healthy) was a bummer, but unsurprising I suppose. All in all, I am very happy with my decision to get the surgery, and I believe that I will reach my goal weight, however slowly.

The only challenge i've been having is drinking after meals. I feel like even if I wait 30 minutes then drink Water, it flushes stuff through and i get hungry again super fast.

I stalled for 28 days upped my Protein upped my calories...added foods and I am down 5 lbs in 10 days.
I am now doing high low days...if I am working out I take in more calories..if I am having a lazy day I eat less calories and it seems to be working.

Best of luck
