Any March 2018 Sleevers?



Recommended Posts

I’m 6 days post op and on liquid diet. I’m scheduled to go to doctor today and get the push to the next stage which includes yogurt , sugar free pudding, farina. I’m not hungry but I sure miss texture lol. My doctor allows crystal light but only listed lemonade and iced tea. I wonder if I could have other flavors. It’s on my list to ask today.

Last night was first night I slept on my stomach and oh what a great night of sleep it finally was!






This mirrors my recovery. I am post surgery day 7 today, but was cleared for full liquids yesterday. I believe I slept mostly on my stomach last night and sleeping is become a wonderful thing! I miss texture as well. My program has us reintroducing foods in stages, slowly. It won't be until next week when I can have pureed foods. Slow and steady wins the race.

I believe my doc keeps us on this next “stage 2” for 2 weeks then I go to the puréed.

Baby steps gets us there too!

Yes I was sleeved march 9 with dr Szomstein at Cleveland clinic in Weston FL. It’s about a 25 minute drive. The Bariatric team is awesome. I was treated so well during my hospital stay. I highly recommend them. They definitely live up to their stellar reputation. Over all I feel fine . Just a little sore where they removed the stomach. On surgery day they gave me Tylenol and nausea meds prior to surgery. That really helped bc when i woke up. I didn’t have any pain just tightness in my abdomen. I didn’t have any gas pain either. I have not had any issues swallowing or vomiting. Extremely smooth recovery.

      I went to my 4th NUT appointment this week and I was absolutely surprised that I had actually lost 9 pounds from my last appointment.  I can get a bit obsessive when it comes to scale use so I've decided to only do pre-op weigh-ins at my monthly appointments.  It saves me a lot of anxiety, I think. 
      I actually was prepared to go to the appointment with excuses on why i gained, so this was a big win.  I didn't actually add much activity to my routine, the only thing I changed was having protein shakes every morning instead of just weekdays.  I really thought my extracuricular snacking activities were going to cause an issue, but I'm not going to let that make feel like it's ok to snack late or keep eating cheese non-stop.   Also probably helps that I had the stomach bug a couple days last week.  I think my organs liquified and came out....yuck...

      Stalls are the WORST.  I know they happen, but I am still disappointed.  I've been the same weight for over 2 weeks.

        Girl, that stall will break. Give your body a minute to realize what's happening and catch up with itself...it'll kick back in gear! 💓

        I know the feeling. I did some major online shopping with all the sales around black friday. In tops I wear anywhere between a S-L. In pants from 6-10. But I must own the world's most elastic panties, because -100+ lbs, I still wear the same undies! :lol:

      I went against my weekly weigh in and cheated today the scale says I'm 248 😂How? Maybe it's wrong lol I just purchased the scale and it's my first time using it. I'll weigh my daughter to see if it's accurate. I was 255 this time last week so I guess it's a real possibility. I'll let you know , I have been very picky about sugars and carbs even though I don't have a huge variety of foods to choose from. I'm super excited and hope everyone is doing great! Got to charge my iPad but I just had to share my happiness
