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.

      Ok I had surgery on Jan 27 2020 so I am 3 weeks out and have lost 32 lbs  I wish I had this done sooner. Now just trying to figure out different things to eat so I am not eating the same thing over and over. I did order some stuff today from the Bariatric Store and that stuff should be here in time for my next phase. I have a goal of 50 lbs by the first of June hope that is attainable. Good luck to every one on this journey

      So went to my surgeon today for one month follow-up. Last time I was there he wanted me to put on 4kgs but oops I’ve lost another 2kgs. Told him it was intended, was trying to maintain, upped my food intake, was stable for almost 3 weeks but last weekend broke it.
      Mum turned 80. Drinks at neighbours, a couple of crackers & dip, home late, no dinner. Out all morning, followed by celebratory family lunch, home late, no dinner. Whole dietary routine out the window. Did have a protein bar & tuna frittata muffin in between but didn’t eat much at all those two days.
      What dumbfounded me was he was ok with it. I told him I didn’t want to put on his 4kg because of the weight gain many experience in the 12+months in maintenance. He agreed with me. What the??? Invasion of the body snatchers??? Totally opposite position from last month. 
      He was also ok with my stopping my multivitamins. Agreed with my thinking that is better to feel ok & eat then be nauseated & not eat. He’ll just monitor my bloods to ensure no problems which is what they do anyway.
      Not complaining.

      Just came from my GPs office. He would want me upping to 1500kcals a day. Have no idea on how I'm gonna do this - a year ago it would been an issue to come _down_ to 1500 kcals 😂
