    I've gained 7 lbs and just have not had it in me to care enough to get them off. My husband has been dieting, and down about 12 lbs, but I'm just sitting over here eating everything in sight while...

    I had my gallbladder removed in 1999. I suffered through my whole pregnancy with my youngest with them telling me it was heartburn. I had never had heartburn, so I didn't know. I thought how the hell...

    Re: Gastric sleeve: record of weight loss

    I had my surgery November 4, 2014 and hit goal of 130 in May (6 months). I lost all the way down to 102, but gained back to an average weight of 117 in 2017 and have hung out around that since.

    Re: liquid diet blues for 2 weeks

    You guys who do the liquid diet are the real WLS pre-op heroes. I would have never been able to handle it. Thankfully my doctor didn't require it for more than one day for me. I'd like to say "You...

    It isn't fair! The guy who owns one of our local pizza places eats pizza every day for lunch with no gain. I have to limit myself to once a week, and there is always a gain. *sigh*

    Re: favorite meal replacement

    A lot of people have a complete change in taste after surgery. They tell you not to stock up on protein shakes prior to surgery as you may not like that particular one afterwards. All I can suggest...

    Re: smoking an the sleeve?

    Actually, smokers seem to be less affected by Coronavirus. Crazy, right? But it's true. I was a smoker when I had surgery. My doctor never tested me, and I don't remember if I told him or not. I...
