  1. Re: Weight gain, almost 3 years out and alcohol

    Kim, its easy to let anything creep up on you in your life, and transfer addiction is spot on.
    I had my surgery the same time you did; I hit way too low early on, and have gotten back to a healthy,...

    Re: Getting There

    I do weigh every day, but its not as disturbing as it once was -- I think if we hid it (along with the 1,000s of other things we can't find) the scale would be gone!

    Ellie, peri menopause was like reverse adolescents! It is a process for certain. I found eliminating caffeine ended the flushing.

    My weight during "safe at home" has gone up and down a couple...

    I'm old; I don't get too much exercise, nor did I during the faster weight loss of early sleeve. But I hit my goal within 7 months, and remain their within 2-3 pounds the last almost 4 years.

    Re: Hi I'm new

    Everyone has to find their level of comfort; KiwiGal is spot on; on the other side, I have had 16 major surgeries (well I'm also old). And the VGS was so easy that my only tears afterward is that I...

    Re: Any Cauliflower Pizza Tips?

    Ha ha ha....pretty much what I decided. We are that generation that doesn't throw stuff out, we eat leftovers. The great dread of cauliflower pizza again was pretty overwhelming.....:)

    Re: How long after surgery can I drink coffee?

    I didn't have coffee for about 3 weeks -- but I stopped having it during the liquid phase pre op, and did have a headache but thought it was sugar detox. Always follow your doctor.... :)

    Any Cauliflower Pizza Tips?

    I made one today.

    I found it to be a "slider" inducing toad froth. Taste wasn't bad (used Green Giant crust), but sort of soggy (I like thin crispy things).

    So I could back off the sauce a...

    Re: Men!!!

    Katrina, even "back in the day" at my bulimic thinnest, I would never have had a 23" waist! My ribs have about 1/2" clearance to hips, so not much waist at all.

    We all carry lots of "old" messages...

    Re: Pain after gastric sleeve surgery

    I only needed Tylenol in hospital, and a few days after WALK WALK WALK to keep gas pain at bay. Pain meds don't work for that. Nap. Walk. Drink water. :) It's probably the easiest of any surgery...

    Re: Post Sleeve diet dilemma

    John,
    First, thank you for your brutally honest sharing. It took so much courage to say all that you said.
    You seem to have a good understanding about how you should be eating.

    Re: favorite meal replacement

    For sure taste changes. I cannot tolerate lemon, but lime is ok. I prefer Premier Protein shake in my coffee, but can't do too many flavors. Only cokies & cream.

    Water is still the best, but not...

    No, it's not fair. But then again, they live with "testorone poisoning" all their lives. Jim is 6'1" tall, 220 (and...

    Re: Crunchy - so tired of soft and liquids

    Also echoing the same advice.
    Not just the first 10 days, 2 weeks.

    I don't do either. I never liked sparkly stuff, and hard liquor is a real sugar reaction for me.

  22. Re: Does meal replacement count with liquid total

    Thank goodness it counted or I would have never made the liquid goal. But it gets easier. And I also use the Kirkland Chewies, but I think ours come from BJs.

    SO important!

    Re: liquid diet blues for 2 weeks

    I didn't find it too awful -- I do have liver issues, so I was quite determined to be "perfect" on it. After the first 3 days, during which I had a headache (sugar detox?) it was great.
