  1. 4 + years out update

    Hello my fellow sleevers! Just a quick update. I am still maintaining my weight loss. I do think i can eat more then i use to, but am not gaining weight. I can eat 1/2 a peanut butter jelly sandwich for lunch. i can carefully eat a 1 piece of pizza for dinner, if i eat 2 because i am stupid and irresponsible then i puke up my dinner and feel horrible! Soft mushy food still feels and sets better then solids. Staying hydrated is still something i have to be diligent about. I still do not drink my ...
  2. Identity Crisis, sometimes you lose more then fat

    I went to a funeral yesterday. I ran into a dear old friend i hadn't seen in a while. I hugged her and we started talking politely, then she said "OH my gosh!Hug me again!"

  4. A new observation by Rainbow

    When i was first sleeved, it was a challenge to get used to eating such small portions. It felt so unnatural and my body had this strange kind of sensation as i was losing the weight like i was STARVING to death. It was burning my fat stores and I knew that was the whole point, but it was very unsettling physically and psychologically. The first year i felt VERY self conscious eating in public or around other people. My small portions made me feel like a freak. Sometimes people would comment on ...
  5. When do you STOP loseing weight?

    This is a great question! You don't stop losing weight usually until you reach a healthy goal weight, then your body just lets you stay there. For some people who have less to lose say around 100 lbs, this gets a little trickier, as you can get under weight! This happened to me. When i kept losing even after i was at my goal weight and size at first i was like "Woo HOO this is Awesome"! But as i got too Boney and Gaunt my Husband started freaking me out because he was sure i was going ...
