Recommended Posts

Hey!!!

So iv seen that im able to eat a bit more then I have been!? Why is this?! Im 5 months out of gastric sleeve. Eating has become a lot more tolerable. But Iv been able to eat a bit more. I usually cant seem to toss down more then maybe 4 oz or so. The other day I was able to drink at least 6 oz with no issue!!! :0 I know I know Im dramatic! lol But yeah Iv also been on a stall, iv lost maybe 20 pounds in the last three months. I know Its going to slow down but this fast this soon? Iv lost 82lbs since surgery. I just need so clarification you guys! :)

You've lost 16 pounds a month on average and even if 7 ponds each of the last 3 months, how is that a stall or a slow-down? That is AWESOME! I don't think 6 oz is going to stretch your pouch.

We're about at the same place :)

I can eat about 4 ounces if it's just Protein, but if I'm eating veggies too then it's a bit more. Water I haven't had any problems with since surgery and can drink almost as if I never had the surgery. In the time it takes me to wake up in the morning and get ready, then the drive into work, I drink 34 ounces of water. It's about 1.5 hours. At work before lunch it's another 34 ounces most of the time, and then slows down throughout the rest of the day. Although I do consistently get in around 120 ounces daily.

You've lost a lot more than me, but there are so many variables. Just focus on protein and hydration, stay active, and you'll get where you want to be.

      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...
