    Re: Carbonated/fizzy Drinks

    Carbonated drinks have never bothered me, others they do. Doctors say it's a myth when you hear the carbonation will stretch out your stomach. I've stopped alcohol because of the calories, so when...

    Re: Hello

    Sounds like you will have to reschedule. Elective surgery is not a life or death emergency. Sorry!!

    Re: Hello

    You'll have to check, but I have never heard of going to another country without a passport. Find out who to ask if they are making exceptions during COVID.

    Some people have side effects, others...

    Re: smoking an the sleeve?

    Funny, I heard the opposite, that if you're a smoker and/or obese and get the virus you're screwed. just goes to show you don't know what to believe anymore. Every doctor says something different. ...

    Re: Hi

    That's what I thought, 186 does not seem high enough for surgery unless you're super short.

    Re: smoking an the sleeve?

    Never been a smoker so really can't answer your question except to say my surgeon will not operate on a smoker. You must quit before surgery. Probably the best reason now to quit smoking is COVID. ...

    Re: Longest stall, feel like crying

    Sounds like you're eating well. Maybe not enough? Added exercise?

    Try not to be discouraged, sometimes it's just your body is in shock. It's frustrating when you know you are doing well to...

    Re: Hello from Connecticut

    My only advice is to keep eating how you were originally taught. Maybe dig out your old materials. I'm over 6 years out and still do the protein first then veggies. I exercise daily. I also...

    Re: Got Shame?

    I guess you need to start by loving yourself. Know that you are worth being healthy and normal sized. You won't live as long at 300 pounds. How do you talk to yourself? Is it how you would talk...

    Re: Feeling gross/light nausea after eating

    I'd take to your surgeon. That doesn't sound normal.

    I've never heard of the mini gastric bypass. Must be new. I love my sleeve!
  16. Re: Pre-surgery: keen to hear experiences from previously heaver drinkers

    Before surgery and while losing it would be best to try to break the habit. I'd say a just the occasional drink. I guess the question is are you addicted to the alcohol? Can you stop? If not,...

    Re: Low carb - 3 years out

    You can do it. Losing was super easy but maintaining is not. I basically stick to low carb. For dinner we always follow the "rule of 2" a protein and a veggie. Best of luck, great to catch it now...

    It is all so overwhelming at first, I totally understand where you're coming from. But your surgeon/nutritionist will put everything in writing, and you will get to refer to it with ever question...

    Re: Once again - weird weight observation

    Well I'm 5'3" (also shrunk) and weigh about the same as you. Gained a little at the start of this mess, and now stuck at 137 for over a month. Happy to maintain at the moment. Did hit 130 for...

    Re: how to eat in final phase/maintenance

    No worries. I don't think I eat any differently than any one else, just less. No one who sees me eat (at a restaurant - remember those - or a dinner party) would know I had gastric surgery. I...

    Retired too and it's so much fun. Gives more time to hike, walk, bike, ski, whatever. My husband retired and lost about 50 pounds! Of course his typical day involves a 5 mile hike with me and then...

    Re: I've fallen off trak

    Get right back on track to how you were taught to eat after being sleeved. 4 pounds is no big deal. Just do it now, before it's 10, 20, 30 or more.

    The further out you get, the more you can eat....

    Re: no soda or straw?

    My nutritionist just said that straw rule is for early on. So it's only for a while! No worries.

    Carbonation won't stretch your stomach, that's a myth. But once again, it's not good for you...

    I have always had high cholesterol, thanks to my family. My surgeon let me go off my meds for 3 months after surgery and it skyrocketed again. Back on meds. But that doesn't answer your question,...
