December 2019 Sleeves

My anesthesiologist gave me something for the anxiety. I didn’t care by the time I hit the OR doors. It’s going to go great! I’m a little over 2 weeks post op and I don’t regret it.

Hey! I had my surgery on 12/4/19 and lost 22lbs my first week, this week I've stalled. Feeling discouraged but continuing to follow my post-op diet. SO tired of Protein Shakes and broth!

Think of it as 11lbs lost each week! If you lost 22lbs every week, eventually you'd disappear 😅

5:15am tomorrow... what time are all the other 12/18 sleevers that are around here? Anyone else nervous AF? Haha idk why this surgery is getting me so rattled vs previous

Hopefully I won’t wake up from anesthesia telling everyone to take Jell-O shots like I did from the scope hahaha 🤦🏼‍♀️ (never even had one before haha)

I have to be at the hospital at 7:30, surgery is at 9:30 tomorrow (12/18) and I’m am also nervous AF!

I have to be at the hospital by 6:15 tomorrow morning. I’m not really nervous yet, however, I feel like I will be when I wake up in the morning. 😩 Good luck to all of my surgery twins! We got this!! 👊

I had mine on the 9th and doing great! The worse part was waiting in recovery to go to a regular room as I wanted to get out of the bed and sit up! I slept on the Recliner in the room as it was more comfortable. Good luck to all the upcoming surgeries! It was the best decision of my life!

I had my sleeve on 12/2 and my wife followed a week later on 12/9. It's actually very supporting to be eating from the "same menu".

I agree. Hubby and I were on the same day. Meal planning is so much easier

        What state are you in????

      Officially no longer over weight! Goal #1 reached! I'm now under 80kgs (176 lbs) at 179cm (5'10") and 10 months post-op and am over the moon. My weight at 79.9 kgs (176 lbs) gives me a BMI of 24.9 which means that I have a normal weight! OMG.
      I still want to lose about 16 lbs more though in order to get safely into the middle range to insure against that little regain that happens. The I have maintenence in front of me as well.
      BUT I have hit my first goal. Yeah me!!!

        Fantastic! That's such a great goal to reach and one I hope to get to this year as well.

      I had my gastric sleeve done September 10, 2020... I started out 330# before surgery.... I'm down to 260# now... I've been stalled out for over two months now.... I exercise when I can (Bad back/knees)... I follow my diet , get my protein and drink my water... But still not losing any weight... I've done everything I can think of to break the stall.... Even went back to liquid diet....  Sometimes I think this was a mistake having the surgery...

        sorry to hear that don't feel down. Maybe a reset meaning something new. I am in the process of having the surgery a second time. I had Lapland in 2012 removed in 2018 and I have gained everything back and some. When I stalled on lapband I had to do something new for me I joined a free boot camp and Zumba and then boom dropped 38 pounds in 2 months. I know you said bad back and knees so find something with your limits. But I think try something new I stalled for 8 months
