It's about the number.

19 months out.... Gained 8 pounds since December... Did the 5 day pouch test.... Ticker going in the wrong direction... I know I don't exercise enough.... Counting calories suck!... Now only lost 59 pounds total and would like to lose more.

I was once told that 5 pounds seems conquerable but it's not so conquerable. In fact, I gained 3 more since then. I still drink my shakes. I'm trying desperately to eat clean and I even got rid of a lot of junk food the house. It's not about

So Upset-Long Time Sleeves Please help

by CharKrab on 03-20-2014 at 11:04 AM
It's been 17 months since my sleeve. I really thought I was doing great. I got through a stall and did reach my goal of loosing 60 pounds but now I realize that I really need to loose at least 10 more. It's not for looks but I have no weight to play with and I need it mentally.

One of my problems is that my husband had the sleeve 10 months ago and has lost 110 pounds and thats 30 pounds over his goal weight. I am beyond upset. He looks too thin and is struggling to even gain an

Help from those a year or more out!!!!!!

I am 11 months out and at a complete stand still. I'm "playing" with 3 pounds, down 2 up 1 or down 1 up 2 and it's been like this for about a month now. I've tried just about everything.

I'm drinking my protein at least 1x daily and always choosing to eat my proteins before veggies and staying away from most carbs. I'm 2-3 pounds from my goal weight but I really

Set backs and complications???

by CharKrab on 11-27-2012 at 04:29 PM
I've read through many blogs and no one has written about any major complications or set backs. I have not been as lucky as most and I am afraid to post anything in fear of scaring people away from getting the surgery. I am just about 2 months post surgery and have lost 30 pounds which is wonderful but I have no one to talk to about my complications and issues I've had. Should I or should I not open up about it in this forum???
