    Hey! I'm doing pretty good. Each day is a learning experience for me. Getting. Y water in some days is easy and other days not so good. Trying new foods very slowly and that's fine by me. Trying to get more walking in but it is what it is.
    How are you????

    I'm good. I'm finding it hard to get into the exercising but the weight is coming off. It is definitely a learning experience. I'm happy with it though.

    I'm very happy I did it too. Definately learning a new relationship with food. Most days are ok and there are some where I miss junk lol. Not going back there for sure.

    I went to a great support group called Long Island Post Ops. They have fun outings, etc. They meet in Bethpage if you are interested. Very nice people.

    Where and when??? If I know ahead of time I can plan accordingly is this group just for Bariatric patients or any post op surgery?

    Here is the website, you can also look for them on Facebook. Bariatric Support Group |L.I.P.O. Nation | Long Island Post-Ops They meet once a month and it is for all types of bariatric surgeries post or pre-ops. The meeting I went to was at the Bethpage Ice Skating Rink.

    Is that the one on Stewart Avenue? Do you have a date? Unless you want to try for the following meeting I would hate to see you rush. Im excited to meet you as well. Sisters of the sleeve!

    Just thought I'd check to see if anyone is still around from this thread. I'm not losing, so I'm starting to look around and see if it's just me, or if others have experienced this, too.

    Hi Anon! I'm just coming back around myself. It's been awhile. I'm 4 years out from surgery, maintaining within 6lbs (up/down). Still struggle getting all my water in though.
