Any MAY sleevers???



Recommended Posts

Hey everyone. I was sleeved 3 weeks ago today. I'm down 15 pounds since surgery.

My energy level is not great. I went back to work yesterday, and had to take the day off today! I'm exhausted!

But so far I have no regrets. Surgery went well, with no major complications.

My new stomach has tolerated everything I've given it so far. I probably have been blending/overlapping the eating phases. When I was on liquids I don't think I was making my foods as soupy as I probably should have. And now that I'm on pureed, some of my foods are probably more like "soft foods," which is the next phase for me.

But constipation does seem to be my new companion. :mellow: I started taking Metamucil, hopefully that'll help.

about 19 days out and feeling great 👍 the weight isn’t coming off as fast as I’d like but I’m still working on it ! I had to give away more than half of my closet because the cloths were too big and I feel great !!!

Your stomache is still swollen. It takes anywhere from 4-6 weeks for swelling to go down. Keep walking and doing cardio. I looked exactly the same for the first 4 weeks just now people and my family are noticing a difference. Lol

Ahhh that would explain a lot ! I’m doing my walking and light cardio I’m happy with the results so far but I know once this swelling goes down that it’ll be better

thank you so much for the advice !

For those of you struggling with low energy are you tracking your calories and macros? I ensure I am getting 600 to 800 calories a day, my Water intake is good (plus electrolytes) and my Vitamins are on point. 6 days out of 7 I feel amazing and feel like I have way more energy than before (knock on wood). I definitely notice my energy is low when I am consuming less then 600 calories. Plus increasing my calories I think is what broke my stall!

I am definitely not hitting my liquid target. I drink between 20 oz to 45 oz on a very good day. I definitely eat more calories than I should too. I am almost 3 weeks post op and I likely eat about 700 to 900 cals per day. On top of my Vitamins but right now only doing about 65 g of Protein Powder

How are you getting all the calories in? I can't seem to get more than 450 and I'm exhausted all the time. But my stomach hurts every time I eat and I have a lot of restriction. I think I'd feel better with more calories. Can you give an example of what your food intake is like in a day?

How many days are you out? 450 calories is dangerously low...I’m 6 weeks out and can eat about 800 - 900 calories And I do spin classes. I need the energy to do high level cardio otherwise I’d pass out

I'm just over 6 weeks out. Saw my nutritionist yesterday and asked her how many calories I should be getting and she said the 450/day was fine. The only limits she gave were to stay under 50 grams of carbs and hit my Protein goal. I don't see how I can get in more calories at this point and still follow my doctor's plan. I'm not meeting my protein goal so I know that's contributing to my fatigue.

Hey! Other than the fluids, you’re doing ok. 3 weeks is early to be able to get that many calories in, but according to my plan, I’m supposed to get 700-900 calories a day, at least 64 oz of Fluid a day (which is HARD and has only happened to me a couple times) and 70-90 grams of Protein with under 100g of carbs. My NUT would probably tell you to work on fluid before food though. And just from personal experience, the days I drink more fluid, the greater my weight loss is later in the week. Could just be coincidence, but I’m just throwing it out there. :) Is just say get to sipping and make sure you don’t go over 900 calories and you should be ok.
I should mention I had the sleeve so if you had bypass or switch your plan could be way different.

      Hello,  I am brand new on here. 
      The doctor qualified me yesterday for the surgery, so now I have to take 12 weeks of education classes and then he said they will schedule the surgery 4-6 weeks after I complete the classes. 
      I am excited to start this new journey.

      Am at the half-way mark of the six month pre-op program.  So excited!  Got clearance from psychologist this morning, so I scheduled my surgery consult for early March.  It is becoming more real now.  Have lost 18 pounds so far, since I began this journey on 12/18/19.

      So months ago, the Kid thought it would be funny to create an account on here and troll me with it.  Figured out it was her a few days later, and had a laugh about it.  She's been trolling me on it ever since.
      This morning I went on to post something and realized after the fact that I posted using her account as she was on my laptop last night 🙄
      Trolling over, Kid.

      My life is WONDERFUL
      JUST PLAIN WONDERFUL
      I am 10 weeks post op today. I have lost 43 pounds!
      I walk 3-5 miles daily and I have picked up Hoola Hooping! I am on a dang roll and I love it.
      SO HAPPY I GOT THE SLEEVE!
      Sorry I have been absent on here but I really have made it a point to take care of ME. My exercise time is precious so I have to get it in before working or anything else.
      I wish there was MORE than WORDS to express to you just how wonderful I feel!
