    Beef Jerky and cheese sticks and yogurt are the best! And when we went to Mexico in October for a wedding, this girl was eating refried beans for breakfast lunch and dinner. And eggs! I have never had a problem with any of the foods I have eaten except now vitamins tear me up! I feel so nauseous when taking them. I have tried several. I am not really missing any nutrients seeing as I can still eat so good. My calories are super restricted compared to how I was but I eat what I want. I was exactly where you are at 4 weeks in terms of pain, eating and weight loss. 5 months later I am down 60-65lbs! and it is slow and steady. I am loving it! I am glad to hear youre eating so well!

    Isn't funny how the days just takes off. Yours are counting down and I'm excited for you.

    It sucks that you had to pay more for the same thing, but overall at least you are still able to get what you want! I know Malley surgical wanted 16,000 and something for the sleeve and I couldn't believe it!

    I am going to Dr. Sergio Quinones in Tijuana, Mexico. Are you a self pay or does your insurance cover?

    Tell your mom not to worry, this surgery is much simpler than open heart surgery! You are not taking the easy way out. too many people want to take the hard and ineffective way and fail over and over because of pride. I am not too proud to ask for help when I need it. I obviously didn't have it together or wasn't able to successfully do it on my own or else I would have! It is what it is! You are going to rock at this and everyone will adjust around you. You will see. Your whole outlook on life will change and it will feel like you finally just woke up from a long sleep. You will be so happy when you are in control of yourself and free. I don't check in much-maybe once a week. I want to wish you lots of luck and reassure you it will be fine and you will breeze through this. Hugs

    Some girls that are Dr. Hoehn sleevers get together from time to time but i havent seen that in a while and last one was in KS. I don't know of any support groups here. I go to counseling myself and have worked through all my initial issues after the surgery. I find support through here and my family and friends. My husband just decided to do it so I am super excited for him. and excited for me as well! It will change us together. I was most afraid of us growing apart initially as I became thinner and more active and he remained the same. The kids are benefiting from all this now as i am going to the ymca with them and cooking smaller meals and portioning out smaller portions for everyone. do you have a strong support system at home?

    Hi Jenny,
    I reposted your link. Thank you so much. This really makes sense. All of his videos are so informative. I'm really glad I watched it. I had a revision surgery; lapband to sleeve three weeks ago. I want to see if he has something on that too

    It was the best decision I ever made. I wish I had done it sooner. Good luck, I wish the best for you.

Slow Going!

by JennyD on 01-28-2013 at 06:07 PM
Just Yuck! I'm terrified that I'm done losing weight already. I know thats not the case but its in the back of my mind.

Finally It happened overnight!

by JennyD on 01-09-2013 at 12:34 PM
I'm down 32 LBs but couldn't really tell except for my face, hands and boobs, that I have lost that much weight but WOW! This morning I got dressed looked in the mirror and said "would you look at that" to myself. My belly seemed flatter and to top it all off a co-worker did the same thing as I was headed into the bathroom. I don't know if it is because of the certain clothes I'm wearing or the fat deposits just moved somewhere else but I"m liking what I see.

Who Sleeps on their Stomachs?

by JennyD on 01-02-2013 at 01:56 PM
I so miss this, I feel like I can't get rested. I'm two weeks post the, sutures are almost healed but Dr says I have a stitch deep in my muscle on my left side and that is what hurts when I lay down now. I am so ready to get back on my belly.

Doing Great! Still Gassy

by JennyD on 12-22-2012 at 08:23 PM
I am doing great! For those of you on the fence about pain and what not, it gets easier everyday. I am still gassy! and I feel bloated so I don't know when that will go away. I had my sleeve on December 18th
