    Re: Lap-Band to gastric sleeve

    Also, be very very careful about the decision to have a sleeve. These things are notorious for causing acid reflux. Some get over it, some don't. I'm in the didnt get over it category, and debating...

    Re: Hello Everyone I am scared!

    Do these things really happen? Yep. Every single one of those things you listed is something I have and still struggle with. Am I still glad I had the surgery? Most of the time. I like being thin.

    Re: Heartburn

    It's a crapshoot. I never had heartburn before surgery. Got it afterwards, and it has never rectified itself. I take prescription Protonix. If I'm even an hour or so late taking it, my day is going...

    Re: I finally did it!

    Yes!!! It's been 10 years and we've been referring to each other as husband and wife for many of those years, so we finally made it official. I've never had a wedding before, so it was a lot of fun...
  5. Re: Any plastic surgeon in Mexico - Abdominoplasty

    I researched having a tummy tuck in Mexico. Turns out it isn't cheaper at all. The only way it would have been worth it was if I needed/wanted to have multiple procedures. My friend had tummy, arms,...
  6. Re: does anyone actually get THIN after this procedure (not just LESS overweight/fat)?

    I had surgery five years ago, and I got skinny and have stayed skinny.

    I finally did it!

    I made mention a few weeks ago that I had something big coming up. Well, it happened. It's all a bit too much to post here, but you can see all of it if you wish to take a peek at my Facebook page - ...

    Re: Surgery location

    I didn't tell them I had bariatric surgery, so maybe that's why. I did tell my doctors when I was sick, but it was all still covered. And when Meg got sick and had all those months in ICU and life...

    Re: Surgery location

    I was self pay. I had my surgery with Dr. Thomas Borland in New Iberia, Louisiana. It was only $9,800. I did have to have some pre-op tests that were not included in that price, but I went to my...

    Re: What's Up? Where's everyone?

    Gosh, I want to be where those pictures are! Stunning!

    As to where everyone is - it's wild that so many longtime posters all seemed to disappear at once. I'm a total worrier, so I automatically...

    Re: Holiday - NO gain! Loss!

    My mother always warns me about diabetes. My grandmother was type 1, and both of my parents were/are type 2 until they had VSG. It's so damn frustrating because I was not a sugar monster prior to...

    Yay for no gain!

    I did fine through Thanksgiving and Christmas, but that week between Christmas and New Year's got me. I got up to 123 for a day. My honey and I started a diet on the second....

    Re: 3 months out- setting a realistic goal

    I don't see why you can't weigh what you did when you were 18 if that's what you'd like to weigh. I'm 5'4" also, and I weigh less than I did in high school. I was 120 at 18 and 115 now at 42. I don't...

    Re: Costa Rica

    Agree about the wait. I went for a consultation right when I reached goal. I'm so glad I didn't follow through at that point because I ended up dropping 25 more pounds without trying. I would have...

    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...

    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...
  23. Re: Doctor pushing Gastric Bypass over the Gastric Sleeve

    Reflux is a bitch. I didn't have it prior to sleeve, but I've had it the five years since... bad, and getting worse. I'm on prescription protonix and still throw up all the time. I plan to start...

    Weigh every morning. That seems to be the number one thing we're all doing to keep us successful. It allows us to know where we are and if we can be a little freer with our food choices.
