    Whatever your doctor says for you to do, you should do it. You will find that every one's sleeve doctor is different and has told us all different things. Your doctor told you what he/she felt was...

    llakim,
    Welcome to the club! I regained about 20 pounds and in April, I rejoined Weight Watchers. I felt like a failure as well, but had to admit that I started letting old habits back in my life. ...

    Re: Comfort Food!

    Sharon is right!
    In the beginning, you won't be hungry at all--and you will have no desire for food. You will have to remind yourself to eat. They will remove that gherlin gene and you will not...

    Re: Comfort Food!

    I would say this: Your head has to be in the game in order for this surgery to work. Using food as a comfort is part of the reason why we all ended up needing the surgery in the first place. Yes,...

    Re: Father considering surgery for my daughter

    I answered your other post, but like others have said, the sleeve is not the miracle--it is simply a tool. The sleeve will help you lose somewhere between 70-80% of your excess weight, but it is...
