Any updates for 4 months out sleevers?



Recommended Posts

Hey, May sleevers! How are you doing? Any updates? Progress? Frustrations? Successes?

I'm at 58 # down now (48 since surgery) and feeling amazing. So healthy! Trying on new clothes makes me happy! Frustrated sometimes that I can still eat very little at a time, but that's the whole point, so I tell myself to chill. :)

How is everyone else?

Congrats on your loss!

I am a late April sleever, so almost May if that counts! April 27 so 4.5 months out. I am doing well except the GERD and random bouts of exhaustion. I am down 78 pounds since surgery and 152 from my highest. Have 50 more to go to get to my personal goal, happy to be so close but I know these last 50 won't be as easy. Hoping to squeeze everything I can out of the last month and a half of the "honeymoon" period.

I feel great!

So many small victories, too many to mention but I will never regret having this surgery, it has saved my life.

I have gone from a size uk 26 to an 18! really chuffed with that and even better, a friend of mine has just given me a load of brand new size 18 clothes which look fab on me, for my holiday to Greece next week :)

Hello! Hope everyone is doing well :) I am down a whopping 59lbs since surgery which is nice! I am feeling great. It appears I’ve stalled for the past 3 weeks right at 201.3 which is sooooo frustrating! I just want to hit wonderland 😭 but I’ll get there eventually.

I am comfortably wearing size 14s though which is freaking amazeballs though.

So how’s everyone doing with their eating? I made mini cupcakes over the weekend for a party and learned others are 100% right that sugar makes you crave more sugar. I nipped that in the bud real quick.

I started the process for VSG in December, weighing in at 241. On the day of surgery, I was 229. Today, five months later, I am 184. I am officially "over weight", instead of "morbidly obese". At a height of 5'6 and pretty athletic, the doctors want me at a weight of 160. I will consider myself successful once I hit 170, but the weight has stalled lately. I knew I was due for a long stall, but it sucks that it happens when I am getting so close to my goal weight. Anyhow...that is my update.

Congrats!! I'm going for a weight over my doctor's idea, too. I was 150 during most of my pre-kids adult life. I figure I can add 10 lbs for each kid I had,LOL, and be good at 170. I'm 5'11" and 170 is a size 10, so I can't wait!! fingers crossed for us both.

Oh wow, you are tall! I am glad to see you are going for a weight that you are comfortable with too. The smallest I've ever been is 169, but I carry my weight in the lower body. I had a tiny waist, wore small tops too, but fit in a size 10 jean. LoL it may sound vain, but I dont want to lose my curves, and that is why I will settle with 160-170.

Hi all!

I really enjoyed reading everyone's successes! I was sleeved May 22nd, at a starting weight of 238. Today, I'm 170 (total loss of 68 pounds). My ideal/goal weight is about 120/125ish as I am 5'4, so I am a little over halfway to my goal! I workout 4-5 times a week for about an hour to an hour and a half of cardio and on the days I am feeling really strong maybe even an extra 30 minutes of weight lifting. I'm wearing both medium shirts and shorts and looking better than I ever have. I still get a bit frustrated when something doesn't taste as good as it once did but my new and improved lifestyle is the best thing I have ever done for myself. Can't wait to hear more about y'alls journeys!

I hate going to the gym so I started taking much longer walks every morning.

I thought I was losing slow too, till my doctor told me I lost 10 more pounds than my predicted weight loss. He said at this rate I will reach goal weight sooner than expected

      OMG! My time is quickly approaching! I can't believe in 5 days, my life will be changed forever (for the better!). I have thought about this surgery for years, but kept telling myself I didn't need it. Now that I can view it as a tool and not a solution, I realize I do need this tool. This tool will not only help me physically, but mentally as well!

      Getting close - 196 lbs as of this week.  Goal is 195.  Actually, I'm thinking of adjusting my goal.  I'd like to get down to 185 to get rid of this scraggly belly jiggle, then try to build back up to 200 with muscle instead.

      I’m a complete novice on forums but I think my experience I’ve had so far following a gastric balloon insertion will be interesting to someone…
      I had my obera 365 inserted on 31/08/21.
