Reached 140 today :)
I'm actually starting to get excited now about seeing the 130's on the scale. I'm still occasionally nervous that I won't be able to stop the weight loss but I'm just trying to focus on eating right and hopefully I can maintain in the 130's.
I've been reading alot of accounts lately of other sleevers and how much they can eat. It used to baffle me that post-op someone could eat 2 eggs. Now I see that it appears to be more the norm than the exception. I truly believe that my sleeve is small. My surgeon uses a 32f bougie to do the surgery but I think perhaps my anatomy is such that my stomach itself is just short. I can barely get a single egg down in a serving even still at 9 months out. When we go out for breakfast I will order 1 egg over medium and a side of bacon. I eat 1 slice of bacon and hubby gets the rest. I can usually get about 1/2-3/4 of the egg down. Any more than that and I'm feeling nausea and very burpy.
Sleeve Gastrectomy is a surgical weight loss tool in which the stomach is reduced to about 25% of its original size, by surgical removal of a large portion of the stomach, following the major curve. The open edges are then attached together (often with surgical staples, glue and possibly cauterization) to form a sleeve or tube with a banana shape. The procedure permanently reduces the size of the stomach and is performed laparoscopically and is not reversible.
