    Hi everyone! So, I was sleeved on Sept 28 with Dr. Cribbins in Plano TX. Just a recap, I had ZERO pain and ZERO complications and I had a hysterectomy done at the same time! I have never slimed, nor have I ever thrown up (THANK GOD!). I used pain meds while I was in the hospital but I forgot to pump midway through the second night and never needed anything, even while at home. I was at the Texas State Fair one week post op and did just fine. My highest weight ever was 235. I am 5 ft 1 so it was packed on! Pre-op diet weight 232, day of surgery 227. Current weight: 197!!!!! I am THRILLED with my weight loss. Mostly because it is steady and I am not miserable!! I eat a variety of foods and don't suffer. I still have a cookie occasionally, ice cream occasionally and candy (hello, it's thanksgiving/christmas, how can I not???). One thing that has changed is my love for soda. I admit, I have tried about 5 sips since surgery, and each time it was NASTY! This from a dr pepper addict. I am so glad I don't like it anymore! I am a bad girl because I have not started exercising. Oh well, it is still coming off at a healthy pace so I am smiling. I am one of those people who would do this again in a heartbeat. I tell people and have not had any negative reaction. People still ask me how I'm feeling regularly though which is kind of funny since surgery was 11 weeks ago and I was fine within a few days. My before/after pics are "raw". Meaning I did not plan my best outfit, or maximum shooting angle or any of that. Just raw. I am really enjoying this journey and I am very happy with my decision. Oh, I forgot. So i was an 18/20 mostly. Now in shirts i go for xl, but my bottom is still somewhat in plus size. I did squeeze on a pair of Old Navy Diva Skinny size 16's and it won't be long before those fit just right. I definetely am losing the top part of my body faster but again, I am so not complaining. I am smaller then I have been in oh, maybe 15 years??? HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY!

    Granbury Tx here... I was sleeved SEPTEMBER 28 with Dr. Joe Cribbins (LOVE HIM!!). I STARTED AT 232, highest ever 238 (i am 5 ft 1), 227 day of surgery and now 202. I am thrilled with my weight loss because I am still enjoying life and I am still eating. I had a hysterectomy at the same time and both surgeons are pleased with my recovery and so am I!! It was textbook with NO PAIN.

    ok. I have not posted in quite a while... I had surgery sept 28. Went from 227 to 194 by probly January.. Uhm, I still weigh between 189 and 194!!! BUT, My size 16 pants I bought at the early 194 are now kinda loose, and my top size is now a large in most clothes... I never made an exercise routine/habit, I eat whatever but ALOT less of it, and everyone says every week at church how I am melting away.. I haven't measured lately either.. But obviously, something is happening.. I am happy with how I look and feel, but am feeling the challenge to lose more so I need to make some adjustments. I had not been at this weight in a good 20-25 years so I am also wondering if my 25 year old fat is a wee bit stubborn. I am enjoying my new wardrobe, which is much smaller then my old wardrobe in size and quantity. So that all being said, be mindful of the some of the key points we were given to utilize our tool: don't drink before and after you eat (i ned to get back into that habit), don't drink soda (i do that, DP addict, non-recovered), Protein first, good carbs not crap carbs and exercise... I saw this post on pinterest about marking your water bottle with the time you should have that amount drank (drunk , whatever).. I am working on doing that but 6 ozs an hour may have been too steep for me to start. I suck at drinking Water. BUT, even if I do not lose another pound the rest of my life I am totally happy with my decision to get sleeved! I feel better, I look better and I know it is not over for me yet. I just have to find my formula and stick with it... I recommend measuring too.. I may try to measure this afternoon if i can find my last spreadsheet of measurements to compare...

    I HATE artificial sweetners too!! I really tried to "like" crystal light but it is nasty. I am pre-sleeve but am looking at ways to bypass all artificial sweeteners. I want to try "fruit infused water" and I will be juicing some. ON the juicing, primarily greens with a few low glycemic fruits (don't want to hijack the thread with freak outs that I am going to juice, I will watch the carbs and sugars.. ) Agave nectar is what i try to use.

    DOn't forget a small pillow (or a small bed pillow) to hold over your belly. I kept one on me for weeks. especially when i slept. And it helps in the car. I did alot of coughing after surgery and the pillow made a big difference. Best wishes!!

It helps the stuck bits come out and also helps with ((roids)) cuz you are wiping less and helping things along. If you are having this much drama in that area, I recommend the $30-$40 investment. We will NEVER be without one. I have no other words of wisdom for you. If you want to laugh at me back find my post where I pooped my pants while on the phone with the internet guy.

    I started with Dr. Kim but couldn't get past being forced to buy certain shakes for pre-op. I heard about Dr. Cribbins (Plano Presby is where I had surgery) and his pre-op being fat free vegetarian. My experience with Dr. Cribbins and his staff has been AMAZING. He I had surgery Friday and he came to see me sat and sunday. He is very easy to talk to and I will say it again: NO PAIN WHATSOEVER!!!!!!!

    omg. I am sooo not getting enough Water. I started at like 232 on my pre op Sept 15, day of surgery Sept 28 I weighed 227. FOr the last week I have not dropped below 210. But, the way I look at it, I have not seen 210 in over 8 years so I am not going to sweat it. It actually is a fluctuation between 210 and 212. I know it's not TOM cuz that was taken out with my sleeve. I do see a difference in my body but my midsection looks disproportionately HUGE. I also don't have a bm every day. It's more like every other day. I guess I weigh less on those days... Thank you for the water reminder!!!! ((I have been aching for a freakin drink of DP, ugh!!))

    Part of it is stress. As soon as I weighed in the last time (i think i lost 4 lbs over the 6 months, if that) I immediately dropped 2 more lbs. If you have taken any new meds or changed doses I would check side effects. I had to start on a med for my endometrial pre cancer issues that had a side effect of weight gain (amongst other scarier side effects). When I went in and weighed I told my pcp about what the endo had prescribed and the weight gain side effect and she noted it in my chart. I know it doesn't help to say "try not to stress" but stress will pack on lbs. I believe you will be ok!!!
