    What's Your Empty/full Signal?

    I start feeling a tightness and then I start sweating. When I am hungry I get an empty feeling, like mentioned above and the shakes.

    Carb Sensitive

    Wow! This could be my reason for losing only 14 lbs, since surgery. I am insulin resistance which translate to "carbs hate me", but so many professional are dead set that the good carbs don't hurt, but I am finding they do. I have been eating carbs and I haven't been losing weight as quickly as I thought I would. I just thought cutting back (since we can't eat that much) would do the trick, but it's not working. I guess I really need to consider take the carbs out. At least until I get to my goal. Thanks for the information!

    One bite too much=nausea?

    I am also kind of like you, but ugh today I felt "dumping" at it's worst. Sweating, naseaus, and I realized JUST TODAY that just because I can take big bites and swallow no problem, that I still need to eat slow and chew. I for some reason didn't clue into this earlier. what a mess!

    Scared to be SKINNY

    Girl I have always heard you can't please them all, so at least be happy yourself and who you are. Don't let that stuff scare you people who hate other ppl for no reason or that are jealous will be that way no matter what. I think you will be happy to be rid of some of that extra weight and feel good about yourself, so do what makes you happy and don't worry about that other stuff. That seems like it could be over whelming, just be a nice and decent person to others and if they don't accept you move on. Good luck! Laura
  5. NO, sorry I am sleepy this am. I started working out in the morning last week and I am still getting use to getting up early. I meant I had an easy surgery on 09/02 and have only lost 13lbs. My friend she has a lot more to lose than I did and she had a little more difficulty, but she is also older than me as well. I had no issues at all, felt back to myself the same day. Laura
  6. You really have to do what you think is right for you. I know my weight issues started in my early 20's, when I got married and stop being active and that roller coaster ride with the weight is awful. I am "slightly older" than you :-), but serioulsy I felt the same way just so drained from my weight being a constant issue on my mind every single day. I did this too be healthy now, wish they would have had it when I was younger because I missed a lot of years just living, because of my weight. In your heart and head you know what is going to make you happy. It is a risk, life is full of them. I pray and leave it God's hands, but I wanted off the roller coaster of weight gain. Good luck I hope everything works out. My BMI was 34 and it was way lower post baby, but I gained the weight back and didn't want to start that all over again.
  7. My friend and I had surgery with Dr. Kelly on 09/02. NO issues, felt safe and my recovery well I felt like I didn't even have surgery. I had little to almost no pain or discomfort, but I got up and walked around as soon as they would let me. NO ISSUES WHAT SO EVER. But to me I seem to be a slow loser, because I have only lost 13lbs since surgery. BUT I have always had a hard time take the weight off due to diabetes. Great experience glad I did, scale going down not up. So that is always a good thing. Laura

    Am I eating too much?????

    Hey Angel, I don't know if you are eating too much, but I am about 6 weeks out and I can eat what i think is a lot too. For example I could probably eat two boiled eggs and then feel full, but 2-3 hours later I feel hungry again. My friend who had surgery the same day I did can barely eat a bite or two and she stops because it hurts. I really don't know the answer, but just letting you know you are not alone. Laura

    It is what it is

    They are not, the Dr I went (kelly), it was a hospital so there were 2 nurses and a Dr on call. If you pushed the button they were there and I had surgery on a Friday. My dr came on Saturday and Sunday. The dr on call came to introduce himself and if we had complaints he came right away. Even to adjust the air. Laura

    It is what it is

    Wow! Sorry for your bad experience. I had surgery in Mexico on 09/02 with Dr. Kelly. I had my surgery on a Friday and dr kelly checked in on us both saturday and sunday. Not to mention the hospital had nurses and a Dr on call which was there 24 hours. The on call dr came to introduce himself and help with anything we needed. So any future sleevers don't think all Mexico place or the same. Thanks for you experience and Take care! Laura
