  1. Re: Weight gain, almost 3 years out and alcohol

    I understand not wanting to give up something that you enjoy, however, the mere fact that you've come to the forum let's me know that those two drinks are becoming problematic for you. Maybe set up...

    Re: Getting There

    In the last year or so I've been weighing myself more often. Last year it was every day. It really helps me to stay on track if I know what that number is. Now, I say that I weight myself 2-3...

    Re: concerned

    1. You will be able to eat and drink normally after surgery--even water.
    2. I haven't heard of anyone having kidney problems due to gastric sleeve surgery.
    3. You can eat carbs again, but you need...

    Re: favorite meal replacement

    If you have a Vitamin Shoppe near you, they will take back protein shakes even after you've opened and tried them. Good Luck!

    Re: Crunchy - so tired of soft and liquids

    Pork Rinds????? No. Just No.
    Please follow the guidelines given by your bariatric team. Just think. Would you give a one week old baby pork rinds? Your new stomach is one week old. You have to go...

    Re: Post Sleeve diet dilemma

    John,
    Do you like protein drinks? There is no rule so far out that says that you HAVE to drink them. However, you must have some type of protein source. You already know the problem, you had...

    Re: Having surgery with toddler at home.

    I've never had a cesarean, so I can't compare it. I would say that the discomfort is like doing 1,000 sit ups. Some people don't take their meds at all. I took meds for a week and then didn't need...

    Re: Having surgery with toddler at home.

    I think that if your mom is willing to help you, you should be fine. I wasn't in excrutiating pain, more like discomfort. The first few days at home I slept a lot. You're just trying to regain...

    Re: Carbonated/fizzy Drinks

    I'm thinking it would be fine in a mixed drink because you're not getting too much carbonation. But I could be wrong. Every now and then (maybe once a year), I drink a ginger ale and I've never had...

    Monica,
    I think all of us here will tell you that having the surgery was the best decision that we have ever made. My only regret is that the sleeve was not around 20 years ago, or I would have had...

    Hi Monica,
    Welcome to the forum. How tall are you? I'm asking because even at 186, I'm not sure if you would be approved for surgery. Have you gone to see a bariatric surgeon or gone to a seminar...

    There are so many factors that we don't know about. The main thing is that you have lost a significant amount of weight already. Is this a stall, or is this where your body is comfortable? I'm not...

    Like Sharon, I am 6 years out. My suggestion to you is to always stay on top of your weight. Don't become complacent because old habits do come roaring back with no warning. ...

    Re: Got Shame?

    The good thing about the surgery is you are required to speak with a therapist before the surgery. This might be something that you can work out then. For me, I was so happy to finally find a...
