  1. Re: Post-Ops: Tell Me About Your Experience...

    Junk food I eat on rare occasions. When I have pizza I'll have a piece, or one taco, or whatever. Basically I eat how I was taught over 5 years ago. It works. You will be so thrilled with the new...

    Re: I am Africa!

    Nope, I'm fine. Just sore for a while. My boots must have been too small for the 2 day climb down, they said to buy a half size larger than typical, and I didn't do that. So it wasn't cold, just...

    I am Africa!

    We did it! Hubby and I completed the climb of Mt. Kilimanjaro. For 6 days we traversed from West to East to base camp at 15,200 ft. On day 7 we made summit at 19,400. We then dropped down to 18,800...

    Are you meeting both your liquid and protein goals? I felt that way rarely the first few weeks but it went away, and I never actually passed out. Just felt dizzy walking.

    Re: I'll Miss you guys!

    I DID IT! I hit 130.6 at Weight Watchers this morning, but got home and weighed my dress which was 9 ounces. So I made my 130 my Africa goal!! 10 pounds under the weight I'd been maintaining for 4...

    Re: Phase 3

    I never put anything in a blender. I did try baby food - HUGE mistake.

    Here's the list I got for that stage:

    Cottage Cheese (low fat or fat free)
    Eggs (do not fry)
    Yogurt, Greek, low-fat...

    My best tip for that first week is to nap all you can! Sounds like you're doing great, keep it up and have fun.

    The Look

    While eating out, no one seems to care that I don't eat that much. I don't think anyone notices.

    But a drink, that's another thing! "What would you like to drink with that?" "Nothing." "Would...

    It does get a little overwhelming at first, everything you need to learn, but before you know it it will become second nature.

    Yes, there is no limit on water, but it is more difficult to drink early on. At first you have to SIP all day long (a big gulp would be painful), and reach 64 ounces of fluids. But everything...

    Re: 1 Day Out

    I would ask about a different capsule, that sounds like a lot to swallow the day after surgery. Best wishes for a speedy recovery! Glad to hear everything went well.

    I don't think you can compare a sleeve revision for serious medical complications to a sleeve revision for a person that just didn't eat right. (Not saying you don't eat right Sassypants, you didn't...

    I believe your sleeve still works. You are just not eating how you should. I'm 5 years out and still have restriction when I eat how I was taught. I don't fall for that "stretch your stomach"...
