    How are you doing? I went to the group meet in to find out that it was changed to the last Wednesday of the month. And I missed it. Lol. Oh well. Hope that you are doing well.

    Good job on the loss. But as for how much you consumed, dont worry about it. The liquid will only stay in your stomach from 15-30 minutes. Not enough to stretch it out. It can only stretch out if over eat everyday. I still eat more calories than suggested but my work is way active and I've been working out. But a steady weight loss still. You will be fine, just have a little confidence in yourself. Before you know it, you will be melting those pounds off. And as for the pureed diet, I had alot of trouble with that one. Just take it slow. Be careful with the chili, my sleeve did not like that. Lol.

    You doing ok?

    Liquid diet was for the first week.
    pureed diet was for 7-10 days.
    soft foods was for 2 weeks.
    Then to solid foods. Just try 1 new one every few days to see how they sit with you.

    3 oz per meal. No fluids 1/2 hour before or after meals. And 1 oz of fluid every 15 minutes which should put you close to the 64 oz of fluid a day.

    It sucks at first but I promise that it gets easier. There's still a lot that I am learning but if you have any questions let me know. And do you plan on going to the meetings?
  14. Still recovering. I had to stay an extra day cause I couldn't hold anything down. Now I'm just sore and trying to figure this "eating" out

9 lbs away from wonderland...OMG!

by acornelison on 12-12-2014 at 08:46 AM
I love everything about my sleeve... The new found confidence, the ease of shopping anywhere and actually being able to find a size that fits me, the energy, the new attention I'm getting, the reports about my kids' bragging on me, etc. etc. etc.

If you are about to be sleeved, thinking about getting sleeved, or just been sleeved hang in there the results are worth it. When I was first sleeved I had struggled with the decision and a small part of me wished I hadn't gone through with

Learning to embrace the new bod....

It's been a while since I've been on here so let me give a quick update... I have lost 73 lbs in 3 months and 9 days and I am 17 lbs away from onderland!!!

I went shopping for the first time this last weekend and purchased a nice suite for work; the pants were a size 16 and the jacket was a L....I shopped in the women's and jr's section for the first time in over 15 years!

I feel alive, I have more confidence, my relationships (professionally and personally) are stronger

60 lbs gone! Thank you Jesus!

How's everyone doing? It's been a while since I've posted anything, so I'm going to give a quick update. I've been meeting with some personal trainers, and I think I've found somewhere to go...now I just have to get the money together :/

For the first time in 15 years I feel like my goal is achievable and I'll hit my goal weight in no time . I feel better about myself and have lots of energy now. I still struggle with foods but I'm

CrossFit or Personal Fitness Trainer

by acornelison on 10-08-2014 at 11:27 AM
I have been wanting to get professional help with my workouts but I can't decide between CrossFit (which looks really intense) and a personal fitness trainer.

I visited a few facilities, but I'm still very undecisive. I obviously want to lose weight and tone up...anyone have any experience with both or at least CrossFit?

Please share!

Does anyone know a good, personal trainer? I use to attend Fitworks, but they closed down and now I have a membership at Plant Fitness...but I don't care for that place (plus they don't offer PFT).

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
