June Sleevers Lets Get Excited!!!



Recommended Posts

I reviewed my diet book today and I can have cottage cheese and eggs and nf refried bras on Friday! Not sure how I thought I had another week. I used to be ok with the sugar free stuff and now it tastes HORRIBLE to me. I hate crystal light now. I have been drinking Hint waters the last two days. Much better than the artificial sweetener after taste! I ordered some Isopure Unflavored Protein from Amazon to add to Water and food - it will be here tonight. I’m getting burned out on my protein shakes.

Day 6 post op. Feeling a little more normal each day. No pain meds at all today. I did get pretty dizzy ... I waited to long time have my Soup for lunch. I guess with so few calories right now, I need to stay on track with food/protein shake timing. I’m on the count down to very soft/mushy food this Friday. I had a ton of pain with one of my incisions. It was pretty rough even with Percocet and the abdominal binder. But that pain is pretty much very dull now - so no pain meds and I ditched the abdominal binder- it was not comfortable at all. I hope all of the other June sleepers that have made it to the “other side” are doing well! I also hope hat everyone coming up has a safe surgery and speedy recovery.
Also - I cannot tell when I am full or hungry. It’s so weird. I have to set a timer to eat and keep up with Water. Anyone else experience this? I just follow the amounts of food outlined in my diet book for the phase that I am in ... but do not really get any feelings or signs when I am hungry or full.

I am day 5 as well, after I was able to get free from gas pain I stopped all medications. Pain is not too bad, it is worst when getting in and out of bed. Because of the gas pain I started to walk more frequently and as long as I needed. I am not feeling tired or lack of energy. I liked Premier Protein before when I used to drink the whole thing at once, sipping on it is horrible. My problem is that everything that is sugar free has a horrible after taste. I am also looking forward cottage cheese and eggs. I was just reviewing my phase 2 diet and I just found out that cottage cheese is allowed. Guess who is going to Publix tomorrow do some shopping.
I replied to your post - but not sure it linked back to this or not! See below! Happy post-op recovery!!

OMG I'm so nervous! I get sleeved today!!! My alarm goes off in 2 minutes, but I've been wide awake for 30.. lol! I had a dream I slept through my alarm and woke up at the time I was supposed to check in... And did the whole mad dash to get there, but was too late.

Thank goodness that was just a dream!!!

I have a lot of mixed emotions this morning though. Am I doing the right thing? Or am I brave? Am I going to be successful? Will I fail at this like I've failed so many other times? So many feelings!

Either way, it's time to get up! Please keep me in your thoughts today... This is my first ever surgery and I'm pretty scared!

I just weighed in for the first time since the surgery and I lost 6 pounds in one week. That is 14 lbs since the liquid diet, or 6% of my weight. Pre op and post-op liquid diets are not easy but let's keep our eyes on the price :)

To the sleevers getting surgery today, I have you in my thoughts. [emoji173]

Thank you all for the encouragement! Honesyly, I'm in a ton of pain... That gas pain is no joke! And swallowing the tiny droplet of Water from an ice chil is so very painful.

My left abdomen is hugely swollen and tender, which makes it hard to find a comfortable position. My roommate is a chatty Cathy with lights on all night...

Those are the downsides at the moment. But I KNOW good things are around the corner! So I keep going on walks and pushing through the pain. It will be worth it! I can't wait to get home to my own bed lol

      Starting to see a rise in trolling of the site, anyone can make a profile and antagonize the good people here, sad. Time for a break...

      Just wanted to give an update. I've been really busy lately with work and my husband had recent surgery. I was off work last week and taking care of him, amongst a nice visit from my mom.
      I'm getting super close to Onderland! I keep teetering around 201-203lbs. Its been this way for the last two weeks.
      I went shopping this past weekend for fall/winter clothes. I am officially no longer a plus size woman. I wear dresses every day, so it's crazy to say, but I hadn't bought any pants since I was a size 20. I only replaced my pants once from a 26ish to a 20 and then I just bought size 12/14 jeans this weekend  And I'm wearing a large in tops (previously a 4X) . It was such a surreal experience going in and being able to shop in this HUGE section of the store. Although, I'm learning, no matter what your size, clothes are still hard to shop for. I thought size would open all these wondrous opportunities, not so much LOL.
      Basically, I'm keeping busy and keeping my mind healthy. A part of that is I'm not hyper focused on the scale. I get more comfort from the NSV anyways.
       I hope to be online more this week

        I'm glad everything is going well on your end. Family first, always and of course, but we do miss your presence here. Congrats on your clothes shopping! I recommend to not go overboard, since you are still losing and will probably be much smaller by the time it gets really cold.

        Way to go!

      2. AshAsh1

        @macadamia thank you :) I am being careful not to buy too much, but my weight loss has slowed substantially. I'm not losing 10lbs-15lbs a month like I previously was. I'm lucky to get off 5lbs a month now. Not to say that I wouldn't lose a size after a couple months, but it's not as rapid. Plus I buy all my clothes from Marshalls and TJMaxx (who's return policy is practically forever), so if they don't fit when it gets time to wear them... then I'll return them for store credit to buy new stuff.

        Always thinking ahead - awesome!

        This is awesome!! So excited for you!!

      Stall is finally broken and I am losing again. Stalls suck but I understand them much better now. I am still feeling great and have kicked my workouts up a notch. I went to an arm/abs class that turned out to be all men and "me".  The dudes walked in with their 30 lb hand weights and I have my little 7.5/10 lbs and I was thinking to myself...what did I get myself into, and am I going to embarrass myself?  Well I decided to stick it out and although I couldn't do everything the dudes were doing, I did a pretty darn good job of keeping up and I am proud of myself for being able to stick with it. I decided I am going back again tomorrow and I am going to kill it again. I belong there too!

        Good for you! I'm still on 3lb weights :( But, a girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do. I'm glad you're feeling so well and able to work out so much! I'm sure that's really taking the inches off!

    • Kaseyn2boys

      The whole time I kept having a nightmare I wouldn't lose weight after all this. How horrifying to have it come true. I had surgery on the 8th. I haven't lost anything since. i drink my water, my protein shakes, I walk, but nothing. How could this be happening. Am I just doomed to be overweight forever? I am beyond devastated. Maybe something changes in the next couple months, but I am no longer hopeful.

        Calm down. You're still very swollen. Many doctors advise against weighing the first month because it can be very disheartening. Everyone heals at different rates. Just keep with your plan and you'll be ok. I promise, the scale will move soon - and BIG! It can take a full month for all the abdominal swelling to go down.
