50 and Up Sleevers



Recommended Posts

I just turned 50 in May and I'm being sleeved this Friday December 7, 2018 and I'm wondering if the weight loss is slower or harder after the sleeve for the 50 and up crew....

Could be slower,could be sustained longer, but at 50+.60+70+ we are no longer required to be sprinters, besides in bifocals it's hard to run anyway. I plan to be a successful 🐢 turtle one foot in front,of the other🐾easing down the path to Good Health.

@TeeMillz

welcome newbie

i had my sleeve one month before i turned 58 years OLD

I will Be 65 years YOUNG in January!!

it wasn't harder for ME to accomplish my weight loss

maybe a little slower - that is just me

never compare your successes to others, whether

they be a youngun, or an old fart like us?🤣

good luck Friday

Hi...I'm 52 and I may be losing a little slower than someone that's younger and I stall often BUT I am steady with my weight loss and couldn't be happier and pleased.

I keep in the back of my mind what one of the posters @Matt Z stated and shared in one of his earlier post, it's the big picture. That post really left a good impression on my mind. I am so okay with my rate of weight loss because in 12-18 months I am CERTAIN that I will be at goal and living my best life. 💪

You will be just fine as long as you stick to your plan and try to move as much as you can 😉

I will be 63 the day of my surgery. I plan to dive right in and exercise (slowly at first). I can't wait.

I'm in the 50+ club. Sleeved in September 2018 I try not compare myself to the young ones. My metabolism has been dead for years. So yes it may be slower but I think if it is then maybe I will not have to deal to badly with the loose skin to much. LOL

Thanks. That's an awesome perspective. We can't see the first for the trees. Step back and see the forest!

I can't seem to see the photo your speaking of, although, I have to agree that the yellow feathers, red Gummy glasses and pink bow definitely results in a youthful appearance![emoji12]

      I've hit a stall 9 months out. I'm not worried, though. My fitness levels continue to improve and I have nearly accomplished my pre-surgery goal of learning to scuba dive! One dive left to complete to get my PADI card 🐠
      I was able to go for a 10K/6mile hike in the mountains two days ago just for the fun of it. In the before days, I might have attempted this, but it would have taken me 7 or 8 hours to complete and I would have been exhausted and in pain for the next two days. Taking my time with breaks for snacks and water, I was finished with my wee jaunt in only 4 hours 😎 and really got to enjoy photographing some insects, fungi, and turtles.
      Just for fun last week, I ran two 5Ks in two days, something I would have never done in the past! Next goal is a 10K before the end of this month.

      Hi everyone, I wrote back in May about having no strength. I still get totally exhausted just walking from room to room, it’s so bad I’m using a walker with wheels of all things. I had the gastric sleeve Jan. 24th. I’m doing exactly what the programs says, except protein shakes. I have different meats and protein bars daily, including vitamins daily. I do drink my fluids as well.  I go in for IV hydration 4 days a week and feel ok just til evening.  So far as of Jan 1st I’ve dropped 76 lbs. I just want to enjoy the weight lose. Any suggestions or has anyone else gone thru this??  Doctor says just increase calorie intake, still the same.

      Losing my hair in clumps and still dealing with "stomach" issues from gallbladder removal surgery. On the positive side I'm doing better about meeting protein and water goals and taking my vitamins, so yay? 🤷‍♀️
