    I have done all the traditional "diets" and even the doctor supervised diets and prescripion pills and nothing works at losing any noticable weight let alone keep it off. My doctor actually brought up WLS when I explained how much pain I am in just from walking. I researched the different methods and decided the sleeve was for me since I don't want the worry about "fills" or nutrient absorption.

Don't have much to update on.
I will have my "anniversary" on July 7...so almost a month away

The scale hasn't moved much; actually not at all, other than fluctuating 2-3 lbs. up and down.
BUT....I am definitely toning and losing inches from my workouts.
I started with a personal trainer

NSV: New Workout Clothes

by JRay143 on 02-05-2015 at 09:59 PM

My hubby let me go on a shopping spree which mostly consisted of new workout clothes, since I spend the majority of my free time at the gym lately.

I know you aren't allowed to drink carbonated drinks after surgery, and I dont/haven't
(I actually haven't had a soda in almost a year, and my surgery was 5 1/2 moths ago)

Anyways....tonight, we went ice skating and sodas were the only drink options offered
My husband got a sprite and I took 2-3 sips, but tried to just quench my thirst mainly from the ice cubes.
Now, I'm paranoid my stomach is going to rupture or something

Anyone have experience
