    Band to sleeve...gaining weight

    this surgery is tricky to say the least. I too am a band to sleeve revision....now putting on...proteins Water exercise....maybe not drinking enough water...hmm...increased exercise a lot...but i am having sugar in tea...in India we drink a lot of tea....i think sugar is totally banned for us.. our body is now refusing to cooperate...like it has a mind of its own.

    thanks Liz for your support...i felt so good...i dont eat much..but sugar in the tea..thats bad.....i am an indian and we are tea addicts... but i must control..also we dont have much options for non veg..and so Protein is also less..

    Disappointed with weight loss progress

    we have to go on eating high protein....other wise weight goes up....protein and water and exercise....unless we do these three things...weight will surely increase...its a serious matter...this weight loss..
