    Re: bmi 37

    If you just want to shrink your stomach, cosmetic surgery might be better. In any case you have to look at your issues with food. People do gain their weight back even with this surgery.

    Re: Can you lose too much too fast?? Day 10

    You will lose fast at first. I would mention the constipation to the doctor. That eating slowly takes awhile to get used to. I ate fast for so many years. It doesn't go away overnight.

    Welcome Aileen! I know it feels like a long wait. It took me 7 months from starting seminar to surgery date. It's worth the wait.

    Re: Just starting, total noob...

    I find for myself the two key things to avoid GERD are no carbonation, and no eating and lying down for a minimum of one hour.

    Re: Slow Metabolism? Who knew?

    Yeah that study on the biggest loser is discouraging. But, it's only one study. I think metabolism does slow down from a long period of dieting. Once we are smaller, it may never go up to a higher...

    Re: Low BMI surgery

    I don't know anything about surgery in Mexico. But I know that the high protein diet will reduce your appetite. You might also talk to your doc about other alternatives like medication.
