Any March 2018 Sleevers?



Recommended Posts

I too have hit a stall since Christmas , I am getting back to severe restrictions on food ( Protein Shakes and bars mostly ) and am upping the exercise . Since I began the weight loss journey I have lost 110 pounds but would like to lose another 30 . I lost 50 pounds pre surgery , 60 post surgery . I didn’t quite have the results I hoped for with the surgery but I am non the the healthier for it. I dread the one year post op , and will like;y put it off till early April as my nutrionist is on maternity leave . I haven’t lost a pound without her help , why she has been necessary I don’t know but I will go to see her and do post op visit with surgeon when she returns to work . The main positive I guess is that despite have two additional but minor procedures ( GYN troubles and parathyroid removal ) with despite the exercise restrictions I haven’t gained weight .

Since you have the same clothes on, it’s like the new you is a “mini me” of your old self. You should be feeling amazing about yourself:)

Great job everyone! I am a month out from my 1 year and have hit my first goal but going to keep going until my body decides to stop losing. It has been slow the past 3-4 months with only losing about 2-3 lbs verses the 12 plus previously but I couldnt be happier. I have lost close to 140 lbs since I started my journey and about 80 since surgery. Keep up the good work everyone!!

Hey everyone. I was sleeved on 03/19/18. Tomorrow is my one week anniversary. I hit my goal weight early on, and I have been teetering between 172-174 for the past month. My all time lowest was 166. I got a lot of negative feedback from people saying that I was too skinny & gaunt. I would like to get down to 170, that is where I was happy. I have not been eating the best lately, not horrible but I can be doing better. Exercise wise, I exercise 5-6 times a week between weight training and running. Overall, I am glad I had this done. I would like to figure out how to take off four or five pounds but it seems that my appetite increased as time went on as well as my ability to eat a little bit more. Here is a before & after collage I made. The after pics I am 170ish. The before pics I am 286. New12.thumb.JPG.052b0c6d98a2f7490376f70b36e32405.JPG

How’s everyone doing?? So happy with my 85 lbs gone! Need to get in the gym & get eating back right again. I don’t care what the scale says anymore and I think THAT is my biggest victory. Time to tone up 😉

Hello everyone. My name is Iza, i had my sleeve surgery done March 14,2018. Back then my weight was 166 lbs. and could never loose a few pounds without gaining a few extras every time I did diet and exercise so I decided to get surgery. At first i felt great! I was loosing pounds and when i reached 130 I loved my body. However here I am a year and 6 months after and still loosing pounds something that I don’t want anymore 😩. My skin looks dry and I’m getting way too skinny now I’m a size 2 gaining 115. How can I stop from loosing weight and actually start gaining a little. I get full really easily when I eat and I’m some occasions make me feel nauseous if I push myself into eating.

Welcome to the site,

Over a year out. Could it be medical reasons or is it that you eat in a calorie deficit. You may want to call your surgeon for medical concerns also ask your dietitian for a new food plan to gain weight.

What are you currently eating in a day???? How many calories? Have you increased your calories, carbs and fats in maintenance phase?????

Members in the maintenance thread will share strategies on how to consume calories to gain/maintain

Here is a link to the maintenance thread.

      I hate these Lovenox shots.  That is all! LOL
      Feeling like a pin cushion.
      I know they are needed and it's only 10 days worth but I really hate giving myself shots. It's one of the reasons I want to be healthy because diabetes runs in my family

      Yas, I am HOME! Traveling back home was interesting but I made it.
      For the first time in my flying life we had NO drink service due to the turbulence! It was crazy. I had to call the steward to bring me water. You CAN NOT let yourself get behind on drinking! That would be dangerous.

        @billybob I am thriving and breathing! That's a blessing!

        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.....

      5. SabrinaGoddess

        @bayougirlmrss I was told this is the fastest weight loss surgery, but I am not really looking for extremely fast. I want it to be healthy. This is our new tool and we can use it wisely for sure. Are you taking your biotin and vitamins?

      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?

        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.
