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 am in the Pre-Op stage.  I have 4 more nutrition classes to go to.  I've had my endoscopy with favorable results although I was told I had an abnormal z-line.  Everything looks good so far.  Had my team appointment with the psychologist and have my pulmonologist  this week.  I chose the sleeve

      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...
