Hello and Happy New Year to all! I am now 6 months after my sleeve surgery and still losing weight. I am almost at goal weight, just 1.6 kg to go - yeyyyyy!!! So far I feel really well, and even though I cannot eat big amounts of foods yet, I manage most types of proteins without too much trouble. The really bad constipation I had seems to have stopped now (thankfully) so that's an improvement.
During a recent trip, I tried Crystal Light to add to my water and have been drinking lots of tha
Hello! I am four days shy of being five months post op and I wanted to give a quick update. I saw my surgeon last week and all is going really well. My blood tests came back all normal, including my cholesterol which I had had borderline high for many years now. So I am very pleased about that. I also got extremely high levels of vit B-12, but the surgeon told me not to worry as this is because of the B-12 shot that I got last month, so he advised that I should skip the next shot due in January
This week, it was three months since I had my surgery. I am completely recovered from the incisions and sometimes I forget that I am sleeved.
I stepped in the scale this morning and when I checked the app in my phone (which is connected to the scale) it told me that my BMI is 29.9, so no longer in the obese range!!! It is very close, but still, my BMI is in the 20s now. I am very pleased that lately I have been losing weight very fast. I am not that hungry at all, so it is a bit of a challe
I wrote this 3 months ago, and by mistake didn't publish it, so I am doing it now.
Hello! I am not a good writer and have never written a blog, but I wanted to document what I am going through, because I have a terrible memory and unless I write things, I forget everything.
I had my surgery two weeks and two days ago, and I am feeling better and better every day. I am still in the liquid phase - my surgeon requires three
Hello! Exactly two months ago I had the sleeve. It feels like it was ages ago, but it was only two months.... I have continued to lose weight, I believe that I am 16 kg down already, and feeling very well overall.
I still have some trouble eating proteins such as meat and fish. I went on a week long vacation abroad and managed to get almost all the required protein and fluids, despite the heat and days spent at the beach. Afterwards went away on a short weekend break and I vomited twice aft
I have been married for more than 10 years to a lovely husband. He's slim, a naturally healthy eater and fit, and has always supported me in my battle to lose weight. Anyway, in the last year I have been snoring loudly and often he had to gently wake me up for me to change position and stop, as I was disturbing him. Among many others, this was one of the reasons to have surgery, to improve my snoring and apnea.
Anyway, last night he told me that since I had the surgery I have not snored onc
Four weeks ago I have my sleeve, amazing how time passes so quickly. I am doing well, still in the puree stage for one more week. Mi biggest incision is still bothering quite a lot, with a stabbing pain that feels deep inside my abdomen. I consulted with the surgeon who said it was to be expected, but I feel that it is getting worse rather than better. I worry that it can be due to the fall down the stairs that I had early on, or some gardening that I did 12 days post op, where I lifted some wei
