    What can I say that was not said already?! I am absolutely in love with my sleeve. I am absolutely in love with the person that I have become through this process. I am in love with the control that I have over my eating. THE BEST feeling ever :wub: !!! I had this surgery to take charge of my life again, and I am learning to do just that. I am more outgoing, more active, more confident. I am a better mom and wife. I have a new lease on life and I am going to do my best to live it to the fullest!! My only regret: that I did not do it sooner.

    1 month post op check up

    Little behind updating but i made it to my one month post op check up last week and i wanted a bigger number but I've lost 33lbs which after i stopped and thought about how many people lose 33 lbs in 1 months! so now i'm proud of my loss. My left thigh is still numb and slightly painful but he said in 6 months that should get better. This month i'm going to focus on my walking and i will pull a big number at my next check up in march! I'm great full for my supportive people i have. I return to work Monday after being gone 6 weeks so i'm dragging my feet there. I'm going to go in with a positive attitude and see how they react. most were jealous that i was getting time off for a surgery they found unnecessary. So i may just be walking back in to the lions den or i may not but what ever it is i will have my head held high! I'm 33lbs slimmer

    1 month post op check up

    Congrats on your weight loss!! Best of luck on your weight loss journey. You are going to have some stalls, so try not to measure your success solely by the scale. Take pictures, and pay attention to how your clothes fit you. As for your coworkers, be very careful with them. Some will encourage you, some will go out of their way to make you "regret" having the surgery. At first I shared with a few of them what I wanted to do. It got ugly lol! I stopped talking about it, because the thought of having surgery was enough. I did not need the unnecessary comments. One told me, maybe I did not know what to do with the money, so she suggested that I let her borrow it! She told me to just stop eating and I would not be so fat!! So I changed tactic on them. I never mentioned the surgery. When I came back, I did the same. I was very vague and generic with my answers or didn't answer at all. "How are you feeling? = I feel fantastic. How are you?" "What do you eat? = whatever I want" "how much can you eat?= as much as I want" " how much have you lost?= not enough!!" "how much do you weigh now? = child you must be crazy!!" I knew it wasn't coming from a good place so I never shared my journey with them. I come to this site for all my venting, sharing, and bragging but that's it. I would never forget, one came up to me and said You look the same to me. I smiled and said " so do you my dear". Make sure you bring your meals with you, water bottle, and your snacks as well. I do not eat anything at the office that wasn't planned for by me. Good luck to you on your journey!!!

    Day 6 Pre-opt

    Just giving a little update. I'm on day six so far so good. yesterday was so so. A co-worker was eating some old bay wings and boy oh boy did they smell good. She offered me so and as bad as I wanted to eat just one I didn't. I'm really proud of myself for that. With this pre-opt diet I'm learning more of myself each day. Mainley that I do have will power and I can do this. :wub:
