  1. Hi guys. I remember when I first became interested in having WLS, especially the sleeve since I had never heard of it before, the first place I went to was YouTube. Man..... oh man hundreds of videos on weight loss surgeries. People describing their weight loss victories and seeing them week after week shrinking before your eyes. It was very inspiring and motivational to me. I thought I want to be someone's motivation when I have my surgery. I'm going to document with video from the hospital to goal weight on YouTube. I got to thinking maybe some people on here might have some videos on YouTube that I can subscribe to and other people on here as well might be interested in viewing them too. Please speak up so we all can be more motivated. Thanks, Deb

    Everything is all GOOD!!! I think I am the furthest out than any one in this group...... 10 months as of 5 days ago. I am holding steady at 180 pounds down from 321 a year ago. Currently not trying to lose any weight becuz I trying to let my mind and body catch up with each other. Plus I am trying to see if my saggy skin will bounce back alittle before losing again. You know what....... it has!!!!!! Woo hoo. So like I said before I'm good and happy with my progress thus far. Deb

    Welcome everyone!

    Hi Jen. My first choice for surgeon was Dr. Selim. I ended up with Dr. Hoehn. Please update me with your thoughts about Dr. Selim. If you don't mind. Deb

    ** HELP **

    Hi Tamz, I was in the hospital one day and took off from work 2 weeks only becuz I could. I felt fine, I even stopped my morphine drip at the hospital becuz I figured why take it if I am not in any pain. I also didn't have any gas pains, no trouble swallowing, no nothing. Good luck on your journey!!!! Deb

    SAY WHAT.......SAY WHAT????? So should we be go to my PCP and ask for a TB test. Deb
  19. OUCH!!!! That hurts. Sorry. :( Deb
  20. WOW seems kinda extreme for your surgeon to postpone your surgery becuz of your bp being a little high. . I hope everything turns alright for you. Good luck!!!! Deb

    What size bougie did they use?

    My surgeon used a 34F bougie. And at 9 1/2 months out I can eat for example one small chilli from Wendys in about 30 minutes. I have lost about 140 pounds, but most of that was in my "Honeymoon Phase". the first six months. I have been struggling of late trying to lose the last 40 to 50 pounds. Deb

    Well, HELLO VST!!

    Welcome to our family. I believe there are some other peeps who have had Dr. Teng as their surgeon. Hopefully they will chime in. I think you have made a very good decision on having the sleeve. One of the best decisions I ever made. Good luck and best wishes with the insurance hoops. Deb
