    Drinking alcohol again????

    No, I don't drink alcohol, but I didn't before getting the sleeve either.

    nutrition labels: an observation

    Just an observation: I've noticed that the proper serving size for almost all foods is actually the serving size bariatric patients are supposed to eat. Everybody just eats 3 times the serving size on the labels. Nearly everything is 1 cup or less or 4oz or less or 1 slice, etc. Makes life easy since you don't have to measure nonstop... just actually follow the recommended serving size for once. Once upon a time I used to laugh at how little they'd say a serving size was... but now it makes so much sense. lol. Sent from my SM-G930R4 using BariatricPal mobile app

    Gas Pains After Surgery

    Thanks everyone for the explanations. This gives me a much better idea of what to expect. Sounds fun!

    nutrition labels: an observation

    That's good to know. Thanks. Yes, I used to also be one of those who laughed at the serving sizes on a bag of something and think "This is more than one serving? No way! Who could eat that small of a serving?" Now I know who can eat that small of a serving . . . ME!

    Weight loss out of proportion

    Sleeved in late October and I have the same thing. Losing all my weight in my legs, butt, and boobs. I had to lose 50# before I dropped a pant size. My old pants still fit perfectly in the waist, and were droopy drawers in the butt and legs. Not at all how I lost in previous attempts (except the boobs - they're always the first to go). For example, my first month, I lost a half inch in my waist, 2.5 in my butt, and an inch in each thigh. way out of proportion to their original size. I can only hope that it'll eventually even out. I suspect that since I'm in my 40s, the belly weight will just come off slower. It did catch up a little in month 2 in terms of inches. I'll have to see at the end of the month how its looking now.

    Weight loss out of proportion

    Welcome to hell. You'll eventually get there. It may take some working out, may take some lipo and surgery...but you'll get there!

    I HATE my cpap with a bloody passion. Can't wait to wave goodbye to it. Sleep doc once told me that typically, reducing your body weight by 20% can stop certain apneas. We shall see!!!
