    Re: Hello

    We were all scared. The only real pain I felt was the moment I woke up from surgery. So it was seconds. I was in the hospital one night and slept most of the time, didn't even get on my computer,...

    Re: Help - Endoscopy denied by insurance

    No clue, but I know I didn't have an endoscopy before surgery.

    Re: Iím back

    Amazing! I'm surprised you could eat enough for the energy to ride 40 miles a day.

    My husband and I now plan ALL vacations around activity. That way you can enjoy a little extra food wise...

    Lowest Weight in FOREVER

    I weigh 133! I don't remember ever weighing 133. (Maybe high school?) I know I weighed 140 at my wedding 41 years ago. (Yes, I am OLD, but I don't feel old). I am totally pumped, want to weigh...

    Re: Thank you Sraebaer! WW

    If My Fitness Pal works, I would keep it up. The trick is finding what works for YOU, we're all different. Plus WW isn't cheap unless you're a lifetime member.

    Re: I'm new and almost a sleever

    We're the same height, I was sleeved 5 1/2 years ago at 57. Best decision I ever made. I now weigh 133 and am training to climb Mt. Kilimanjaro in August. Hubby and I just retired and our theory...

    Re: Throwing up after eating.

    We were sleeved within about a week of each other. Please see your doctor, something is wrong.

    Re: Support Group Humor

    Bras were the #1 most difficult article of clothing to purchase after the sleeve. I don't know why I had such a problem, probably the loose skin under my arms. After a years of buying, trying,...

    Re: Do you get hungry?

    I would say I didn't get hungry while losing, but now over 5 years later I do get hungry, and have to be sure to follow my healthy lifestyle as far as food and exercise. You are one of the lucky...

    Re: Are second thoughts normal?

    Yes, I'd say therapy will help. You have to be fully committed to change your lifestyle, or this won't work. But when you follow the rules, the results will be beyond your wildest dreams. If...

    Re: Thank you Sraebaer! WW

    It's funny, because if someone would have mentioned WW 3 years ago I would have told them they were crazy, to just follow the sleeve rules. But now I'm finding it super helpful.

    Re: Support Group Humor

    Actually I'd like that more than one big group. But the maintenance group would be really small, I think last night there were only 3 of us. But I definitely had no interest in hearing about the...

    Support Group Humor

    I think I've already mentioned I don't get much out of support group at the hospital, but I still attend maybe 3 times a year.

    Last night I heard the funniest comment. This girl said, "Once I...
  16. Re: Newly sleeved... pain when swallowing liquids

    Are you taking teeny, tiny sips? That typically works. Good question for your medical team if it still hurts. Good luck!

    Re: Finally Going to Do It

    Try to tell as few people as you can. I think we've all learned that lesson. People not in our shoes just don't understand, and often say stupid things.

    Re: Staying full for two or three hours

    Could you drink before your meal? I think my nut said half an hour before. It is important to get in your liquids, but I know where you're coming from. When you're full, you're full. Try to shake...

    Re: Phase 2 Eating

    The key is to stop eating at that first feeling of full. Eat another bite and you are going to feel horrible.

    And don't worry, this phase won't last. Before long you will be able to eat healthy,...
