  1. Don't worry, everything does go back to normal. I was sleeved on 01/17/11, I couldn't even drink my pain meds right after surgery because the smell would make me puke. Just drink your liquids and know that everything will go back to normal. HAve a very merry Christmas!!!

    To my fat,

    I love it!!! I feel the same way.
  4. I never had any health issues before surgery except for being overweight. Since surgery, I had kidney stones, acid reflux and constipation. I have to drink these shakes that are driving me up the wall and my hair has not only changed its texture but falling so much it’s scary. I had to go from long hair to an absolutely short hair cut to try to cut off the dried ends, but you know what? I would do this again in a heartbeat, not once have I regretted my decision and I am so thankful I had this opportunity and this option. Yes, I did diet and exercise before surgery, heck, one time I had a personal trainer train me 5 days a week for 2 hours and I lost 25 lbs and you all know how that turned out. Over $1,400.00 down the drain and the weight loss came back on and then some. The energy I have now is incredible, the love of live I feel every day, I am running, really me? Running 3 miles 3 times a week, doing Zumba classes 3 times a week. I love shopping for size 8 instead of size 18-20. I feel stronger and happier than ever before, I can keep up with my kids, husband, work and housework. Yes, we all go through inconveniences when we have such a drastic surgery and the thought of the surgery being irreversible is a scary but the way I see it is: this is my second chance and nothing will stop me now. This has been a blessing, with all its inconveniences a blessing it has been. Happy weight loss everyone!!!

    9 months- HELP!

    I am 9 months out and need 5 pounds to reach my goal, I am so exited about that, but I started training for a marathon a few months ago and noticed that every time I would train or exercise I would gain muscle therefore weight and I hated to see my scale move the wrong way, so I decided to reach my goal and then start exercising as part of my maintenance. I do go to Zumba class twice a week but I already know those days the scale will not move.
  6. Good Morning everyone, I have a question I am stuck and don't know what to do. My husband went to see the Doctor, he claims my husband is a perfect candidate for the sleeve; He has a BMI of 42, High Blood Pressure, sleep Apnea, and everything else that comes with it. The Insurance rep at the doctor's office looked over his chart and said that even though he has 4 years of a BMI over 40, UHC requires his BMI to be over 40 for 5 years therefore UHC would deny him. She is refusing to send UHC his information and request for surgery saying he has to wait until next year. So this is my question, can we send his file to UHC and try to get approved on our own, or should I just wait until October for my open enrollment at work and change insurance companies over to Aetna who only requires 2 years of an BMI over 40? Thank you for your help.

    Magic bullet

    I love mine, I make my shakes in it all the time and add fruits to change up the taste, they are made in seconds. I amso use it for scrambled eggs and light things like that. As far as food preparation, I use the food processor. My Magic Bullet sits on my counter because it's used every day.
  8. YAY!!!! That is so awesome!!! Congrats.

    Shopping list

    Hi Ladies, my doctor advised me to have on hand a few things that I will be needing after surgery, once at home, but I figured I should ask the experts, the ones that have gone before me. Can you ladies help me come up with a post-op shopping list. Thank's everyone
