  1. Finally 120 pounds post op and 148 overall !

    Now this next 10 pounds really took a long time to come off !! Ive been straying and making bad food choices and going up and down by 5 pounds since before Christmas but a bout of severe sickness and upset stomach last week has really reset my pouch !

    My weight is falling off again and my restriction is super tight again Im taking advantage of this by being super strict. Im off to WDW and cruise at the end of next month and I want to get a few more pounds off for that
  2. Hair loss-still shrinking-love my sleeve

    So I am in the 40% of sleevers that have hair loss. I figured I would be since my sister (who is 5+ years post op) had hair loss. It isn't too terrible so far, but I do notice it.

    Tired of soup!!!!! Although I came up with an ...
  5. One Daya Before Pre-op Diet, 2 Weeks Before Surgery

    My doctor gave me 3 pre-op diet options: all protein shakes, or only lean meat and veggies, or a mix of both. I really want to lose some weight and I'm not sure what option will be best for me. My plan for now is to start out with the shakes and trade off with the meal plan, on every other day. But, I wish I knew which option would be the best for me. What a pain.

    I've been on pain meds since my tooth extractions and I'm so sick of it. I want the pain to stop so that I don't ...
