  1. I follow Ann2 and tinman as well. They both have different ways of losing and I kind of follow both as well as my own path. Ann2 is so awesome and has her whole story and journey available for review. Hope this helps.
  2. Hi Maxine
    I started back drinking coffee, one or two cups in the AM, about 3 months after WLS. At first I just didn't want any at all. Then the warmth felt so good. It hasn't affected me in losing I don't think. However, each person is different. I don't know if you use MFP to log your intake of food each day, but it really helps and you would be amazed at sometimes not getting in enough of the protein and liquid which DOES affect your weight loss. Anyway, I hope this helps and I look forward to sharing our journey. I am so glad I did this.

It has been a year since I had my sleeve and it seems to me that the gas problem is worse than ever. Nothing seems to help. It is so embarrassing and the smell makes me want to vomit! Please help

slow going

I am interested in hearing from people my age that have had the sleeve. I am not doing that great and wonder if it is an age thing. Your input would be appreciated.

Got it done!

So, I have my sleeve now, 5 days ago and feeling good! I appreciate so much,all your help. I was reading earlier about someone that said she is hungry all the time and how hard it is (she was 8 month post op); When do you really start to get hungry? I hope it is a really long time

I am getting ready to have my sleeve done and very excited about it. I am a coffee addict and wonder how I can deal with it, Seriously now, is it really necessary to give up coffee?
