June Sleevers Lets Get Excited!!!



Recommended Posts

Anti-acid pills, rumored to help a sour stomach, routinely Calcium Carbonate, something a sleeved or bypasser cannot digest and use, so it gets💩out. A waste of money in the long run, common brand is Tums.

Hey guys its been a while,

Checking in to see how progress is going, I'm still slow and steady.... Still can not eat salads which makes me a little sad because i've been craving chick-fil-a salads and every time i eat them i'm sick for a few days. Avacados also bother me but not as bad anymore. Carbs are still my bestfriends and i'm trying to slowly kill that relationship lol. Hope everyone is hitting there mile stones. Would love some picture updates for motivation. I will post this afternoon!

HW:202lbs

SW:197

CW:168

I had my surgery on 30th June and I've lost 73lbs altogether. I can eat pretty much anything now, although bread and Pasta make me feel uncomfortably full. Constipation is still a problem occasionally and I'm developing some loose skin. However, I feel so much better over all, these two problems seem like a small price to pay.

lost 46 since surgery, 73 since HW

very slow now but at least it’s still going down. No issues with anything I’ve tried eating so far, but I too miss enjoying a big salad (especially from Panera 🙄).

Good evening sleevers,

my surgery date was June 14th and I’ve lost 78lbs so far. I haven’t introduced myself to rice potatoes not bread YET. I was wearing a size 22 and today I brought a size 10. I’m super happy but frustrated that my pouch doesn’t like much. I still have a problem with salads, chicken, and salmon. I mostly eat ground turkey, Beans, oatmeal, nuts, eggs, bacon and Protein Bars.

I hated taking pictures before that really showed my weight so I don’t have a lot.... this was last thanksgiving and it’s not my heaviest.... I was at about 190 in these pictures my highest weight was 202.... and the current is from today.... I just happened to catch a glimpse of myself as I was walking out of my bathroom and thought omg that’s really me!! I’m down two sizes and not where I want to be but I’m so much closer. I feel good in my clothes and in my skin.... this was truly the best decision I ever made.

Hi everyone,

I'm so happy to read all about the progress from everyone. I'm down 40lbs so far since my June 21st surgery. Here's a before and after. Slow and steady, still working on keeping those bad carbs to a minimum.

      Friday marked my first surgiversary, so I wrote 3,000 words about it on Medium: https://medium.com/@mistyfritz/life-after-having-my-intestines-rerouted-d7baf9c8c39f?source=friends_link&sk=e24f2259918ac091cdbbb8a8f24b1f63

      Hey all! So I went in for my weight management class. I thought that would be my last one but I actually have to wait until the nutritionist clears me. She has to decide if I'm ready. I''m not mad at it. It looks like my surgery will be happening in the summertime. So instead of focusing on the surgery date, I'm putting my energy into losing weight and making sure all these appointments are taken care of. It feels like doing mini quests on a video game before trying to fight the BIG BOSS. I'm not ready for the BIG BOSS yet. haha. Feeling pretty good!

      Finished my 6th and final NUT appointment yesterday.  Everything is done except the psych eval and submittal to insurance.  I did everything required of me including the 100 pages plus of food tracking, I lost 5% of my total weight, and I went to every NUT appointment.  
      Hoping for the best, things seem to be lining up well for me and in the end, I think I will be able to fully have my wife on board with this whole thing.  She says she is, but I know she doesn't think I should do it.  Just like I replied to another post earlier, i'm doing this either way, it's my decision at this point and I know I can get her to come around at some point and maybe even convince her to look into it as well.
      Also, I just started with an APAP machine a couple weeks ago and "holy sh*t" has my quality of life improved greatly so far.  I wish I had looked into this years ago.  I didn't think I had apnea until I had the study done and i stopped breathing an average of 12 times an hour.  That's nuts...
