50 and Up Sleevers



Recommended Posts

I have no regrets on having the sleeve, BEST decision I ever made. I'm happy where I'm at. But then get upset with myself because I'm not loosing anymore, and think I should loose more. I have been bouncing the 3 pounds up and down for the past going on 3 months now. It get's me depressed about it. I have to get a grip on where I want to be.

Hope everyone is doing ok also and enjoying life to the fullest.

Reviving thread: How are all the 50+ peeps doing???

@Healthy_life2

thanx for the "revival" - I feel like singing !!!

i was sleeved one month shy of turning 58 years old, 7+ years later, i am 65 years young!!

used to be 5'3" - now i stand 6' feet TALL!! (still cute as a button!!)

inherited kidney problems from dad - about 15 years ago🙁, good looks from mom LOL

Dialysis started one year ago -no prob - no pain - sleep fine, "hooked" up in bed

at night for 10 hours.(hmmmm, sounds kinky😉) dialysis then does its stuff and i'm good to go.

(small catheter in stomach / attached 30' hose) i can reach/walk to the bathroom - phew!!!

(hmmmm - probably TMI, but when you are in renal failure - your kidney functions -

urinating - decrease/STOP) buttt unfortunately you still feel that need/urge to go to the BR (you try, but will be unsuccessful)

i eat like a "normal" person, Moderation used to be a big problem. all good now - watch

how and what i eat, i no longer keep track of my day with MFP - but i am very mindful of

what/how much i eat & drink, calories etc.

weigh daily after i shower- weight fluctuates 5+ lbs here and there GOAL - was 130 - now 135-140. NEVER have gone over that dreadful # of 140.

that's my story and i'm stickin' to it. 🤣 (film at 11:00, coming to a theater near you!!)

hugggggs to all my BP family

holding a glass of Water up to your/our health

kathy

Hit goal last month and figuring out maintenance right now. 1 year anniversary is Tuesday. I haven’t felt this good or active in awhile.

I’ll be 59 this fall and I will continue to live an active and healthy lifestyle for the rest of my life. Being overweight was a lot of work, I much prefer this.

edited because I thought I was a year younger than I am!

I AM HAPPY where I'm at. I just get a little disappointed at myself that I'm not at 140 yet. I will get there someday but for right now my Husband and daughter is so proud of me. I'm truly grateful that I had it done. Thank you

      Donated 50 lbs of Jeans and another 30lbs of shirts to Salvation Army. 
      Had to go buy some new clothes that I used to hate, but now kind of like. Trying not to buy too many though as I know in a few months I'll be donating them as well.

      Hello everyone! I just joined the forum today. Had my surgery almost 3 months ago and lost about 44 pounds. Most of the weight was lost within the first month, and my weight loss slowed down almost to a stop. I became very frustrated. Talked with my dietitian several times, and it turns out I haven't been eating enough. Who knew! I was eating around 500 calories a day, and exercising daily. Well, I had to up my intake to 800 to 1,000 calories. I'll see what happens.
