    Re: Hi

    Monica,
    I think all of us here will tell you that having the surgery was the best decision that we have ever made. My only regret is that the sleeve was not around 20 years ago, or I would have had...

    Re: Hi

    Hi Monica,
    Welcome to the forum. How tall are you? I'm asking because even at 186, I'm not sure if you would be approved for surgery. Have you gone to see a bariatric surgeon or gone to a seminar...

    Re: Longest stall, feel like crying

    There are so many factors that we don't know about. The main thing is that you have lost a significant amount of weight already. Is this a stall, or is this where your body is comfortable? I'm not...

    Re: Hello from Connecticut

    Welcome to the group!
    Like Sharon, I am 6 years out. My suggestion to you is to always stay on top of your weight. Don't become complacent because old habits do come roaring back with no warning. ...

    Re: Got Shame?

    The good thing about the surgery is you are required to speak with a therapist before the surgery. This might be something that you can work out then. For me, I was so happy to finally find a...

    Re: Gastric sleeve

    Tonerman is correct! Tracking your food is key and also weigh and measure your food. Get a food scale and get out those measuring cups and use them. Track every single bite that you put in your...

    Re: Low carb - 3 years out

    Maintenance is a little different for all of us. You have to find out what works for you and be as consistent as you can. For me, when I regained, I went back to Weight Watchers, I needed the...

    Re: Once again - weird weight observation

    Annie,
    I carry the bulk of my weight in my middle. Even with losing 85 pounds, I will never have a flat stomach. Never in my life did I ever believe I would be wearing a size 8 in pants. I think...

    Re: New surgery candidate w weight question

    Trust me, your bariatric team will not deny performing your surgery just because you have lost or gained a few pounds. They will make sure that your insurance requirements are met.

    Re: Once again - weird weight observation

    Annie,
    I think an "ideal" weight is one that we feel like we can sustain--not a number on a BMI chart. According to said BMI chart, I am still considered overweight. In order to be at an ideal...

    Re: Eating More Plant Based and Less Meat

    Hi Tracy,
    I gave up meat abruptly and have not had any problems. I have had some of the meat and chicken substitutes and they are good, but I'm trying not to rely too heavily on those.

    Re: how to eat in final phase/maintenance

    I think that once you have surgery, it will all make sense. The important thing is for you to eat your protein first. Your bariatric team will give you a list of acceptable proteins, and what you...

    Re: First Telehealth Dr Appointment

    Anne,
    Zoom has been an absolute lifesaver in order to stay connected with my work and my friends. I live alone with my doggies, so it's so good to be able to "see" other people.
