  1. 8 days post op

    Ok, so I went to the doctor Thursday and he said everything seems good and that I can start the full liquids and every Friday after go to the next diet stage. Well....I know I haven't been behaving the way I should as far as the diet perspective goes, but I feel so much better. 2 days before I was supposed to, I started sipping protein shakes, I felt great and the little left over pain from my incisions completely disappeared. So I've been on full liquids for 4 days now and I decided since cottage ...
  2. How long should I board my dogs?

    Hi everyone & thanks for all your great advice!

    I'm 18 days away from surgery (yay) and trying to get my environment squared away to make things easier. Kitchen is cleared out, etc.

    My question is re: how you felt when you came home from the hospital.

    Her- "People were talking about you..."
    Me-"Who's talking shit about me?"
    Her-"No they were saying how you were so tiny and shrinking."
    Me-"Oh! LOL. I thought I was going to have to fight someone."

    So that really happened. I was happy for the compliments, though I have apparently been the talk of my training group (the ...
  5. Stall Broken - Loss Continues - Lap-Band to VSG Revision

    Hi guys,

    I am just stopping by for a quick update. I don't necessarily feel like I need to add to an endless list of gastric sleeve blogs. But I do think there aren't a lot of updates on lap-band revision to gastric sleeve. This can help the folks who are losing weight slowly compare their journey to other lap-band revisions. So here goes.

    It has now been 41 days, 6 weeks since I had my surgery. Today I weigh 181lbs. That's a 2lb difference from my last week stall. ...
