    Turkey Neck with early weight loss

    Jane - I have wondered about the Neckline Slimmer. Does it have three different coils to change the resistance? If so, which one are you using?

    Suddenly Single... now what?

    I am sorry to hear you are having a tough time. I truly believe things happen for a reason and one day soon you will see that another door has opened for you. I would encourage you to go thru with your plans as having this surgery has been one of the best decisions I have made for myself. I almost chickened out before surgery and am so glad that I did not. I am only 5 weeks out and already feel better about myself as I am feeling better and moving better. I was really scared to have the surgery, but it really was not difficult. My best to you as you begin your journey.

    Painful GAS pain!!

    I didn't have problems with gas in the hospital until I laid my bed back to go to sleep that night and was overcome with horrible pain in my shoulders. Couldn't hardly push the button to call the nurse. I would recommend keeping your bed more upright as this really helped me. I repeat DO NOT PUT YOUR BED BACK!!!
  19. What kind of Lean Cusine are you eating. I think I might try one.

    April Update from everyone

    Glad you are feeling better Stacy. What brand of Cappacino protein drink do you get. I've been thinking I need to try something different. I am almost five weeks post op and am getting along well. Just need to work on getting in more water and walking more. I'm down almost 50 pounds (counting lbs lost on pre op diet). Can't believe I am actually losing weight. I Love My Sleeve!
  21. Do you think I can eat them at 5 weeks post op?
  22. wannabethinn

    surgery tomorrow!

    Good Luck to you! I am just 5 weeks post op and love my sleeve. Did not have much pain after surgery, did not puke, can eat and drink fine and I'm down almost 50 pounds (including pre op diet). Love my Sleeve! I also was scared I would not wake up and actually told my surgeon I was not ready to die...not sure what he thought of that! You'll do fine and will be on the other side before you know it. Let us know how you are doing when you feel up to it.

    4th of July - WHAT WILL YOU WEIGH???

    SN..............Starting Wt...............Current Wt..............Goal.................lbs to Goal Wannabethinn...................334...............291.................270.............21 Congratulations on the 180s Julia!! That's awesome!!
  24. I'm 4 weeks Post Op and feeling pretty good. I was surprised as recovery has not been as difficult as expected. No trouble eating or drinking as I have not throw up at all. No trouble with gas (other than in hospital) - not even taking a PPI for gas. I am tired at the end of the day, but other than that I'm feeling pretty normal. My only regret is that I did not do this sooner. I'm 50 years old and have struggled with my weight for a long time. I am down 42 pounds since I started Preop Diet 6 weeks ago and even though I have a long ways to go, I am already feeling and moving better! Good luck to you on your journey.

    Sending my prayers your way. I hope she is feeling better soon. I am just sleeved also, so not much advice here. Hopefully Tiffy and some of the others have some words of wisdom.
