    Feeling a bit... down, I guess

    I don't know how to describe it.
    The days are getting shorter, maybe it is that.

    But I have no experience whatsoever with that stem cell treatment, not do I know anybody that has.

    I think we are entitled to be a little vain.
    I think it means we feel good about ourselves and want to show that.

    No, they have no clue.
    I wouldn't tell anybody if I were you.
    Not even your closest friends.
    It's nobodies business.
    If they are around you long enough, they will have probably seen you loose...

    It is not a big deal, it will repaired during your sleeve surgery.

    I have no idea what "normal"' is, but I did not reach 1000 calories until I was about 1 year out.
    I am now more than 2,5 years out and 1200 calories is my "normal".

    Don't worry, you can't stretch you stomach in 3,5 weeks.
    What you may notice is an increase in the amount of food you can eat, but that is due to fact that your sleeve swelling diminishes.
