    Re: Hey-o! I'm new here.....

    Sorry you were bullied into the sleeve, that's crazy. It's a major surgery that requires a lot of research/thought and your full "buy in." But if you were obese, I guarantee you won't regret it. I...

    Re: Not that bad

    I'm going to second what everyone else has said, I LOVE your attitude! I can tell you'll do great with that positive attitude going on. It really is so much fun. And I agree, the only slightly...

    Re: Summer Schedule Struggle -- anyone else?

    We just got to the lake last night and stopped to shop before we got here. My summer favorite is fruit, watermelon, cherries, blueberries, and raspberries. Protein and veggies too. Of course we're...

    Re: 24 days post op

    Totally normal. Get off your silly scale and just keep doing what you're doing. (Seriously, have a family member hide it). It makes no sense but it happens to all of us.

    I wouldn't weigh more...

    Going to the lake for a week tomorrow, then Minneapolis for a long wedding weekend, then home a few days before almost 3 weeks in Africa. I always do so much better at home with my routine, but I...

    Re: Surgery Thursday

    Every doctor is different; I've seen from two weeks to no food after midnight before surgery (like you) and everything in-between. Consider yourself lucky! I had 5 days.

    I seriously think I'm done with being jealous of super skinny people. I'm normal sized and strong. I'm happy where I am and what I can do!

    Re: Surgery Thursday

    First of all, I didn't lose before surgery. I find that requirement silly. (Just something the insurance companies made up). You will lose after surgery, no problem. (I may have lost a little...

    Re: Caffine

    I could have one cup a day after surgery. You can take away my stomach but not my caffeine! Supposedly it is dehydrating, but I still drink a lot of liquids so have never had a problem.

    Re: Hello Sleevers

    My surgical team does not believe in any pouch test. But they said it won't hurt anything; if you want to do it fine. just call it a "mind reset" instead of a "pouch reset." But I would recommend...

    Re: Pre Op Diet... I need help

    Totally normal to be nervous. But like I said, it is SO worth it. Can you even imagine being a regular-sized, healthy person? Priceless.

    IMO, the pre-op diet was the only difficult thing about...

    Re: Hello Sleevers

    I think almost all of us have gone through this. Maintenance is tough. But if you weigh daily and catch it before it gets to be too much, you'll be fine. Just review your original materials and go...

    Re: Pre Op Diet... I need help

    Follow whatever your surgical team wants you to. Every doctor is different. Now isn't the time to start making up your own rules.

    I had to do 5 days of liquids, was at a friend's lake house for...

    I would think pickles will fit in perfectly with your new lifestyle, unless the sodium bothers you. I do eat dill pickles as a snack, a 0 calorie veggie.

    Women's Sizes?!

    Why is it men know exactly their size, and women never do. I (almost) always wear size 8 and smalls in everything. Bought a pair of hiking pants, Kuhl brand (with the two dots over the U), in a...
