    Re: 3 Years 3 Months Post-Sleeve. Struggling!

    Ugh... I'm a bit of a stall.
    Lost around 2lbs in 2 weeks, and I'm following everything by the letter.
    Down to 95.3 KG as of 4/4. Hoping to bust through it this week.

    As I said I'm taking this 5KG at a time, so my initial short-term goal/focus is 97.5KG. Hoping...

    Re: Pouch Reset

    What Dutch said.
    The whole "pouch reset" theory is completely false. If your pouch has over stretched, which IS possible, it will never go back to its original size.

    Re: Smart BMI

    BMI is a funny thing. Larry Scott is a good example.. At 5'8", 205 lbs, Mr. Scott won the first Mr Olympia bodybuilding title at the age of 27.

    Re: Exercise stopping my weight loss

    Don't go by the scale 100%. When you start exercising, your body is re-adjusting; re-shifting. You very well could be replacing fat with muscle, which weighs more than fat. This is a good thing....

    Hi Jaimaroo,

    One thing for certain -- you certainly "deserve" having a healthy lifestyle in which you are happy with how you look and feel. After all, you put in the time, effort and the money to...

    Re: 3 Years 3 Months Post-Sleeve. Struggling!

    If a sleeve "overstretches", is it reversible?
    If "drinking with food, eating too much and "pushing" the food" are the causal factors, then I am most certainly guilty as charged, as I do all 3.

    Re: PreSurgery testing?!

    They might want to take a look at the rate at which your blood coagulates. I think this is an INR test? I had this test within the 7-day period of my surgery day.
