    Re: Got the date!

    I'm excited for you! And nerves are normal, but it is, as surgery goes, pretty straightforward. I didn't take much with me, and truly, all I did was sleep and walk. And walk, and sip, and sleep. ...

    Re: Happy Place!

    Oh Sharon, you're too funny. You can do this! I was a camper (along with our 4 kids and horses) for many years, and its easier than you think, especially with air mattress.

    Re: 3 1/2 weeks VSG issue

    It's tough when having a life presents us with some eating challenges...it really helped me to remember that I am there for the interaction with people, not the tasty deliciousness that got me to 100...

    Re: 5 months out - plateau

    Ditto the above. I have had a few times when I lost and gained and relost the same 3-5 lbs without anything changing. The key is, "without anything changing" in my diet or activity. It's just a...

    Yes, that realization that new eating is forever, with only very small exceptions, is a gift versus a burden. Health. Appearance. Feelings.

    You've got this because you saw what you were (or weren't doing)....back to basics, yes. And I had to remind myself to chew my nickel size bite 20 times, put down the fork (yes, clear down without...

    I'm sure someone will have good advice -- yes, I had a plan when I got home, but my bariatric guy is literally 5 minutes away.

    Re: Hysterectomy Blues....after sleeve

    I had my hysterectomy about 20 years before my VGS, but as to regain (anything above my "drop dead" number), I found WW tracking a great help. I do use MyPlate by LiveStrong, but honestly, WW made...

    Re: Post op 4 days

    Well done, and get all the rest you want and need. Healing happens with secretions that are going on while we sleep and rest. I did rest a great deal. But I am also older (65 at sleeve time). I've...
