How are fellow March sleevers doing?



Recommended Posts

I’m up and around and feeling fine. I sure am hungry, though. Real, not head hunger. I’m averaging 90 G Protein and 600 calories. Down 11 lbs since 4/19.

I have felt pretty great this week. As far as hunger goes, some days very hungry in my head. Other days, 3PM rolls around and I remember I better get a shake in. Down 12 pounds since 3/9. Weight loss kind of stalled for a few days but have a feeling its due to constipation:(

Two days out. Doing ok. Still nauseated when trying to drink. I have real hunger as well but it is not overpowering at all.

3 days out and doing ok. I was able to finish a Protein Shake today, though it took an hour and a half. No chance of me meeting my 64oz goal but I continue my sips.
How long until I can get on the scale and see all of this surgery bloat and Water weight gone? I GAINED 7 lbs from the surgery, which I understand is mostly bloating due to the swelling. But when will I see the number slide back down?? A week post-op or longer?

3 Weeks out as of yesterday. On Puree stage now. Started work again on Monday and everything is good minus feeling dead tired by the end of the work day. 2 shakes plus a little Protein like yogurt, cottage cheese. My goal is about 90g of protein and my 64oz of Water. Besides that, all is good and getting in about 2 miles of walking in the late evening.

No. That was my starting weight back in may of last year from talking to my PCP about surgery. Surgery day I was 306 so 20lbs in 3 weeks.

Phew, I was thinking that is a really high bar for me to measure against. Thank you for the reality check.

OMG! That’s awesome!!! Out of curiosity, how much Protein and cals are you getting in? I’ve been stuck at 11 for several days. I average 650 cals and 90 protein.

I'm feeling great. Don't have any real issues with food - except I cannot tolerate eggs in any form....which makes me sad. Down 30lbs but have had an impacted colon twice! On Miralax but not always helpful. I have not had any issues moving from phase to phase. Start "regular" foods tomorrow! I was sleeved on 3/7.

I'm feeling pretty good! My surgery was March 12th and I'm down 30 pounds. Still a little bit sore when trying to sleep but not too bad.

      I had my gastric sleeve done September 10, 2020... I started out 330# before surgery.... I'm down to 260# now... I've been stalled out for over two months now.... I exercise when I can (Bad back/knees)... I follow my diet , get my protein and drink my water... But still not losing any weight... I've done everything I can think of to break the stall.... Even went back to liquid diet....  Sometimes I think this was a mistake having the surgery...

      Happy anniversary to me - well almost. Friday marks the one yr anniversary of asking my GP if she thought I’d be a candidate for WLS.  
      What an exciting, sometimes frustrating but ultimately rewarding journey. I’ve lost 40kg or about 40% of my body weight & am below my goal weight. Some days I  just can’t believe where I am now from where I was 12 months ago. I never imagined this reality. 
      I am grateful for the encouragement I received from family & friends. I am grateful I have a supportive GP. They helped smooth the rough patches & kept me on track. I’m also grateful for this site. The information & support has been so helpful & eased many worries. 
      I’m still sorting out maintenance (what works one week doesn’t the next) but I’m up for the challenge.

      Too much anxiety and stress:
      So lately thanks to COVID 19 (I don't have it though been trying to stay safe and healthy) I've been having severe anxiety and panic attacks lately. I've always had this problem but it's getting worse so as a result I've been having bad insomnia and getting sleep is hard for me right now. I wish it were easier but it's a work in progress AGAIN. I thought I got over this hump a while ago and was getting sleep but now my insomnia is back in full spring and I hate it! My grandmother is also moving on Tuesday and that is also stressing me out because I'll have no family nearby since everybody is in other states now thanks to California being too high. It makes me so sad man! But I am seeing her today on Monday for the last time before she leaves on Tuesday this week.
