    Re: Your help and advice please

    The reason the sleeve works is you physically can not overeat. You lose quickly, which is totally motivating.

    But you're right, I'm 6 years from surgery and I still do have to eat properly. ...

    Re: I need some ideas for healthy snacks

    I feel your pain, I am always craving sweet, especially at night. Often a protein bar does the trick. I'm doing Weight Watchers and find the ones lowest in "points" as they seem to range from 4 to...

    You know more than your doctor? Sorry to be harsh, but I have heard some horror stories here. Tamara2 a good example. Instead of not taking your doctor's recommendation, I would get a second...
  6. Re: Vegetables - some good ideas from the vgs group :)

    I do love fresh veggies, just takes preparation. I typically keep them in water in the fridge to keep them crisp. Then a good dip is the 0 FAGE greek yogurt with some of the dry hidden valley ranch...

    Re: Why did I even want this sleeve?

    Your life certainly sounds crazy. But don't you think everything is easier at 50 pounds less? And don't you think your life may change over time? Any children to take over the farm? Hope things...
  8. Re: Hoping for a new and healthy lifestyle...soon

    I would say 2 weeks if at all possible. And get some help with the kids that second week If you can. It would just put you off to a really good start. But do what you have to do. What does your...

    Re: Little changes

    That's scary! I know I don't drink enough water either. (Sitting here with my coffee). Glad you're OK!!
  11. Re: Hoping for a new and healthy lifestyle...soon

    - How long do most have to take off work? 2 weeks. I was a teacher at the time.
    - How long was your hospital stay? 1 night
    - How did you do with the pre-op diet? Mine was only 5 days, no problem....
  12. Re: Doctor pushing Gastric Bypass over the Gastric Sleeve

    I have heard from this site that the bypass is better if you have reflux. Your doctor knows what he/she is talking about. Best of luck to you.
  13. Re: Waiting for surgery, gained weight, so embarrassing.

    A little gain before surgery is no biggie. After surgery it will fall off if you follow the rules! Best of luck to you.

    Re: 56 years or older who's had RNY

    I assume excess skin would be the same after either procedure. If you're 212 you probably won't have much to worry about. I went from a little higher weight to 130 and any excess skin hides under...

    Re: Excited

    You will need at least one full week to only worry about yourself. No cooking, childcare, cleaning, driving, whatever. Two weeks would be even better. Very excited for you, I know you have made a...

    Re: Not following the "diet"

    It is "stupid easy" to lose the weight! It seems to fall off whatever you do. I think the important part of following the protein first and all the other rules from day one is they become a habit...
