    Thank you for your message GigiUSA! I haven't been on the forum for awhile after returning from the procedure in Mexico. Wow, was that a roller coaster! But thank you so much for your support on the day I went in! <3 It was really difficult to go through but I am glad all that is over and I am back in the states and just getting my stitches out today. I haven't lost much, the last 4 days have been NO loss. I started at 226 and now am at 212. I guess I hear of those losing around me that went in the same day I did and they are dropping a pound or two a day. I am black and white on this post op menu of just liquids still so not sure why I don't see the weight coming off. My husband says he sees my body changing even though the weight might not be showing it on the scale and hope he is right. I am excited to see myself down the road and my progress and am so determined to do this "right"!

    Thank you so much! I am officially on the losers bench! :-D been a bit rough because I woke up in so much pain from the gas that I was crying. But it's getting better. Been out about 3 hours now. Still painful but I know it's not forever.

    Thanks! Just got home from the hospital about a half hour ago. All went well, and I actually feel really good. Just five more days to tomato soup and mashed potatoes. It will be so good to eat real food again even if I can't eat much of it!

Liquids - Week 4/5?

by GigiUSA on 08-04-2017 at 10:23 AM
TGIF Sleevers!!! Hope everyone is having a great Friday? I am doing really well but have a question for the group. I am really having trouble getting my liquids in. Just wondered if anyone else had this issue and what you did to rectify the situation? I don't want to dehydrate or get kidney stones. I really try to sip, sip, sip. Life gets in the way but this is too important not to get a serious handle on it now.

Adding flavors to my water tastes funny to me, even adding

-29.4 and Feeling GREAT!

by GigiUSA on 08-01-2017 at 09:35 AM
Good morning fellow "Sleevers" Hope everyone is having a good day so far. Just checking in, it has been awhile since I posted.

So far, I have been doing really well with my diet. I am struggling to get fluids in and work on this every day. I think I need to get one of those hats that people put beer cans in each side and have a straw that hangs down so that they can drink on the "go" LOL... of course I would have water!! I just get busy and the "sip,

What an amazing journey! Feeling excited and blessed for a new life (hugs)

My experience with the Weight Loss Agents and Dr. Almanza in Tijuana Mexico July 2017

First of all, to those scheduling surgery, I want to congratulate you for making the decision to improve your quality of life through weight loss. Most of us have been through the yo-yo diets and the feelings of helplessness in trying 1,000 different ways to lose weight. I hope that anyone getting sleeve surgery respects their new sleeve for the tool that it is and strictly follows all instructions

T Minus "1" Day!!!!! ...I can't believe it

by GigiUSA on 07-02-2017 at 11:46 AM
I'm posting my pre-op blog sitting in the San Francisco airport waiting to fly into San Diego. What a crazy ride so far. Funny... I'm telling my husband about this amazing site and my T minus countdown to surgery and I got a little teary! He's much more reserved and not the "out there" personality that I am... but we both shared a laugh. He gets it that this site and all you wonderful people in the site have been such an amazing support system. Anyway....

T Minus "4" Days.... Feeling "Hangry"

by GigiUSA on 06-29-2017 at 01:06 PM
I can't believe that I only have 4 days until my sleeve surgery! My first Blog post was 41 or 47 days and here I am almost there. It really did go by so quickly. I remember in the beginning thinking that this day would never come.

Now all of a sudden life is throwing everything at me all at once and I am determined not to break. Even my liquid diet is going really well... except I think I now understand the term "Hangry" because I hate to admit it... but I am really
