    Re: My first scale victory!

    First rule of gastric sleeve is that there is no set rules. Every surgeon has a preference for just about every aspect of the journey. LOL. But look at you....Onederland!!! Way to go!! Toot...

    Re: Finally got some answers...

    So glad they figured it out Michelle! My sister was sleeved 5 years before me and she has had anemia issues. She has to get iron infusions. I think part of hers is genetic though as my mother was...
  3. Re: Have you had luck with a weight loss journal?

    I have tried over and over. I will track for a bit but can never keep up with it. I also find it tedious. I was able to lose all my weight and have been able to maintain without using a tracker.

    Re: Daily Meds after Surgery

    The best bet is to always consult your surgeon and doctor that prescribed the meds. It is best to have both doctors involved.

    Re: upcoming surgery

    1. My shoe size did not change. I always had skinny feet as a fat person, though.
    2. I went from an overflowing 34DD to a small 32A. So yeah... my boobs ran for the hills.
    3. I have not read...

    Re: Bariatric vitamins

    Initially I took the Bariatric Advantage ones that my surgeon's office sold but they always made me feel queasy. I eventually switched to the gummy multi vitamins. They are the only ones that do...

    Welcome Jen. Stinks that your insurance doesn't cover WLS but many do not. Wishing you a successful surgery with an easy recovery.

    Congrats on taking the plunge Jessi. I suggest that you take some good before pics in the least amount of clothes possible. I did mine in a bra and panties. Find a place that you can do it...

    Hang in there Mayra. It will get a little better each day. Just be sure to keep sipping frequently and the more you get up and walk the better it will be. I also used a heating pad on my stomach...

    Re: Sleeve questions and concerns

    So you are one of the smaller sleevers. Most people on here have BMI's 40+ or at least well over 35. Most surgeons in the US will not do it for under a 35 BMI. As for the pain, I have a hard time...

    Re: Pre-Op FAIL

    Pre ops suck and I had an easy one. I was to have 2 shakes, a healthy meal of lean protein & veggies, and as many sugar free jello and popsicles as I wanted for 6 days and then I had 3 days of full...

    I am glad you are dealing with the addiction. I am thankful that so far I have not had any transfer addictions. (At least none that I have noticed.) I also have a friend who had bypass many years...

  18. Re: Considering Sleeve Surgery Next Week -- terrified and don't know whether to do it.

    I love the control the sleeve gives me to not overeat. I used to eat A LOT. I was never full. I always felt hungry unless I was eating ginormous portions. That is no longer an issue. I could...

    Re: What do you consider snacking?

    If I only ate 3 meals a day I would wither away to nothing. I eat 5-6 times a day because I still eat pretty small portions. :)

    Re: Two quick questions

    I would try the smallest container of any protein powder that you can find and not stock up. After the sleeve your taste buds can change drastically. Plus, everyone reacts differently to different...

    Sip frequently. Remember that all liquids count towards your fluid goals. I would suggest setting a timer to go off every 10-15 mins in the beginning to remind you to sip. You won't really feel...
