    Re: 1 year surgiversary

    My surgery was 6 years ago and I can tell you life just keeps getting better! Sorry about your complications, but it sounds like you're doing great now.

    The sizes are weird. Clothes that fit at...

    Had a great three days of climbing in Rocky Mountain National Park. The snow and occasional ice made some downhills tough. (The group said they would make me an "I've Fallen and I Can Get...

    Re: Hi 👋🏻

    60 pounds is fantastic! How much more do you have to lose? If you do have more to lose (and aren't close to goal) it's time to get out your old materials, study up, and get back to eating how you...

    Re: A little sad

    For sure get rid of anything too big, you don't want an excuse to go back! I gave all my (very nice) things to a transitional program for women starting over.

  8. Re: Bariatric Doctor--Haven't Seen Him in Years!

    Me neither, but as a self pay patient I can't see my surgeon unless I want to fork out a lot of $$$. No insurance coverage. But luckily the bariatric nurse and nutritionist still answer any...

    Absolutely love your post. So happy for you!

    That clothing expense happens to all of us. I went a little ( a lot) overboard.

    Re: 6 Year Surgery Anniversary!

    Plus think how EASY the sleeve is compared to trying to just lose hundreds of pounds on your own. I always say unless you have complications, you have nothing to whine about. Just do what they...

    I've seen so many negative posts lately it makes me sad. Just go to "latest activity" and look through the titles. Seriously, guys, if you are happy, excited, and positive this will be so much...

    Re: Post op struggling

    Yep, it's a full time job at first. But every day gets easier. Try the protein drinks that are more like Gatorade if you don't like the shakes. I used Isopure, a big bottle, I liked the orange...

    Another note, what you are describing happens to almost all of us! And I totally agree, it MAKES NO SENSE. I never understood it either, but it happens. I do remember crying on the phone to my...

    Re: Sleeve vs bypass

    Re: BMI of 40 at consult?

    Each insurance company is different. If you need to weigh a little more wear your heavy winter clothes, jeans, boots, etc. Something heavy in your pockets!! Good luck.

    Re: Disappointing initial weight loss

    Be positive. You are losing weight! Your body is confused at first, soon the weight will fall off. If it's bringing you down, just hide your scale for a month.

    Seriously, positivity is how I...

    Re: Was It Really Worth It?

    Did you type that wrong? You gained 80 pounds 4 and a half weeks since surgery? No way can that be right.

    If you lost 80 pounds in that short a time that's incredible, way faster than most...
