    Hey Poji,
    I am sending you a note about your last posted blog. I know exactly how you are feeling - a month ago I was wondering, "What have I done to myself"? Once my nausea was under control (and what a journey it was just getting to that point!), I had zero interest in food. I had to slowly increase my intake on a daily basis and took no pleasure in eating. I forced myself at the appointed meal and snack times because I knew I had to. I felt like my life depended it. So now, here I am a month later, enjoying the foods I am eating and right back on track. What I went through was scary and I can totally relate to the feelings you express. Things turned around quickly for me once the nausea was controlled and I got hydrated and nourished. It was a six week long journey to get there! Hang in - you WILL get through this. After everything I've been through I can say I am happy that I was sleeved though I would have been hard pressed to say that five weeks ago!
    Warm Regards and I wish you luck and healing ... Janet M

    I am going back to work after 10 days off total- 12/30 I think that will be good for me, our last full day in TJ,Mexico we walked all over most if the day and felt great! I'm just going to have to keep making myself drink to get in liquids. I have not been hungry yet, when I drink a protein shake I take about 3 swallows and I am full. Takes me a while to finish it. Hope everything goes well with your surgery tomorrow.

I am so out of touch :(

by Poji on 02-25-2016 at 07:58 PM
I don't remember the last time that I was on here...I should have reached out
I am two years and two months out.
After I healed, and worked through some difficulties, I was on a high! I was exercising, eating well, and the weight was falling off. Before long I was not only at goal, I was under that...I was underweight - I loved it!
I haven't kept up with proper eating. I haven't kept up with exercising. I haven't be going to support groups, or coming on here. Factor

My results have inspired others...

by Poji on 08-23-2015 at 11:26 AM
My initial experience post-sleeve was rough...However, after progressing and doing really well, my sister and now my daughter have both had bariatric surgery (RNY). Neither of them have had any complications...Both are doing very well!

I say to those of you who are struggling, hang in there. For those of you who are scared, hang in there. For those of you who are trying to decide whether or not to have the surgery due to possible complications, and after having lived through every

1 year/8 months out...

by Poji on 08-22-2015 at 10:38 AM
Since I was last here I weighed 137...I am now 144 ish. It's uncomfortable. I am told I needed to put some weight on, and I have...not the "good" weight however. I have put weight on because of returning to unhealthy habits, i.e., eating junk, eating too often, and so on. Returning to this path is so scary!
Being back on here for just these few minutes is reassuring...I won't let this continue I am so thankful I have you/this place to turn to!

Unbearable stomach pain?

by Poji on 02-08-2015 at 10:18 AM
I was sleeved in Jan 2014. Since then, and as recently as a couple of nights ago, I sometimes have stomach pain that lands me in the hospital (3 times now!).

Do any of you, or anyone you know, experience extreme pain of no known origin?

Sometime the pain is relatively short, goes away on it's own. However, there are times where it will last hours and is so painful (10/10 pain scale) that I end-up in the ER...Morphine doesn't touch the pain, and they eventually give

My first year - CHECK :)

by Poji on 01-10-2015 at 10:25 AM
I had my 1 year post-op check-up the other day...I have lost 98% of my excess weight. All of my labs are exceptional...My dear Dr, Boone told me I'd made this (check-up) easy for him

Now the hard part...Continued compliance, accountability, support, and healthy weight management/maintenance.

Moving forward after your first year, did any of you feel a little uneasy at this same point? I am :/ Advice welcome!
