    Thank you! Advice I think would be to find what works for you, but definitively become active and get out there. As for eating, work on yourself internally, learn to realize you are in control and not food. <3
    Good luck and thank you for your kind words

    Hi SpringRose Thank you for the friend request. You look great. I am really excited and nervous at the same time. lol I feel like a giddy high school girl I am really nervous about the endoscopy than the actual surgery. The thought of swallowing the camera aahhh freaks me out. How did you manage ?? My Endoscopy appt is on 7/17 and my sleeve surgery will be scheduled shortly after that appointment.

About SpringRose
Sleeved or not sleeved:
I have had a gastric sleeve.
Biography:
Hey, I am a student, mom, wife, and substitute teacher. I had major weight gain after my 2nd and 3rd son. I constantly stayed overweight, no matter how much I exercised or dieted. So, when I found out I was borderline diabetic, I agreed to surgery. Best choice ever. Two weeks later I had 3 heart-attacks due to- at the time and unknown- curved vein in my heart. I believe this weight-loss has saved my life. I now have closer to normal triglycerides, and they said my heart was lucky I lost weight and still am. Life is looking up. For the first time in 6 years, I feel healthy again. I can play with my kids and not feel as exhausted as I did before..... love it!

Desk Job Struggles!

by SpringRose on 10-13-2017 at 11:56 PM
With my first desk job, I find myself at a top weight in two years. I am trying to incorporate more workouts and eating healthy. I found out recently that Zoloft (prescribed at my husband lost his job and we nearly lost our home) may have contributed to part of my belly fat. However, I know some of this is my diet and lack of activity.

In May, I started my first full-time desk job. The pay is incredible but the suffering my body is taking is horrible. It is nasty for my major back

Any Advice: Mysterious back pain 3 years out advice. See the doc tomorrow

by SpringRose on 12-19-2016 at 11:40 PM
Any advice will be helpful. I will see my normal doc and the new local gastric sleeve surgeon. Before surgery I never had back pain. Now it is a daily battle. I have seen a physical therapist, working on strength training, and done anything suggested.

Tomorrow I plan on asking about MRI's and anything else. I also plan to ask the surgeon what may have caused it. Do you guys know anything?

Triggers: eating til full, eating sweets, sitting too long, standing too long,

Chronic Back Pain since surgery.

by SpringRose on 11-09-2016 at 12:46 PM
After some research on other gastric sleeve sites, I have found others have experienced this upper back and beck pain I have since surgery. Can any other my vets here say how they control their pain? I am so desperate.

I am almost 3-years out. I have had several cordisone injections done from mid back to my neck, and am now on Cymbalta. The shots worked on all but one muscles in the back--the worst one. And, after 6 months the Cymbalta is not working much on pain. At first it was

5 k

by SpringRose on 06-17-2016 at 08:58 AM
Has anyone even done a 5 K? I have NEVER done a marathon. After 6 months of laziness and seeing my size go up and celulite hit, I need motivation. This seems like it would be good for me. And I am so EXCITED to do it with my daughter.

Does anyone has any suggestions on how to get into shape for this? How about running? I normally end up with neck and left shoulder pain from running. The only person in my town that helps teach you to run wants $250. NOT in my price range. HAHA.. I

2.5+ years. Here is my journey so far. I have a ways to go.

by SpringRose on 06-04-2016 at 11:04 PM
The last 6 months have been HELL! So I decided to make some major changes, get active AGAIN, and start to move forward. I have finally, FINALLY, realized that I am at an okay weight and that I need to focus on firming and eating clean.

There seems to be a lot of posts about what to expect over 2 years. It is still hard. I can eat well, but I gain if I don't focus on eating healthy. As a bulimic, I now know that I must NOT count calories and focus on eating clean (major issue right
