    Re: The Why of My Sleeve - Adventure? Or...

    I was just having the same thought about us self pay people. Seems like there's quite a few of us still riding the success train. Seems odd because it was so much easier with me being self pay. I...

    Re: Your help and advice please

    Not gonna lie, it is hard. Not at first since you cannot physically overeat and can literally eat pure crap and still lose weight the first year. It gets hard usually around year 2. You're able to...

    Re: Telling Others About My Surgery??

    I just don't know. I told my friends and wish now that I hadn't. They have big mouths. It's not that I care if people know, it's that I want to be the one to tell. It's been 5 years and both of them...

    Re: Fell off the wagon

    I dont really feel like we get to choose our goal weight necessarily. I think our bodies all choose where they want to go. I had it in my head that I wanted to be 130, never imagined I could go...

    Re: Fell off the wagon

    But do you guys gain it as fast as me? I can put on 4 lbs in a day. I'll tell you, I was scared this time. I just haven't felt as motivated, and was worried I wouldn't be able to get the pounds off....

    Re: My 2 year update

    Same, Sharon. I hate shopping, so I don't even know how I've managed to amass SO MANY clothes. Though I never like how I look in them, so many of them just take up space.

    I had my hysterectomy in 2013 before I had VSG in 2014. Now that makes me wonder if that's what encouraged me to gain weight. Hmm. I went from about 140 to 213 in 10 months. It blew my mind how...
