    new addiction anyone?

    I have the same issue as Jane_J, i have been drinking way too much. I am working on it tho, I want to get to my goal, only 18 lbs to go! I havent lost in 6 months because of my wine drinking. I am slowly weaning myself, it is starting to work and I feel better too!

    It will change, hang in there! It is most likely head hunger. Drink your water, get up and walk, read, anything to get you "head" of thinking it is hungry! I was able to do protein drinks the day after surgery, call your Dr and see if you can start. Best of luck!

    Stomach gurgling

    Hi! Congrats on your new sleeve! I am 11 months out and STILL have gurgling....it isnt all the time but quite often. I think it is funny now! Lets see what funny noise my tummy will make this time!

    First thing, congrats on your weight loss! You should have had a meal program given to you when you went thru the process of getting the surgery scheduled, I am 11 months out and still have protein shakes and bars. Everyone is different as to what they can handle. I was one of the lucky ones, I was eating regular foods quickly, albeit small amounts. I would call your doc and have them send you the info again, I used that as a base and added/subtracted foods I liked and tolerated. Good luck to you!

    Oh yes, I would soooo do it over again! I have had no issues whatsoever, I was very lucky! My only issue was self inflicted, I started drinking wine a few months ago and stalled. Back on track now tho! I no longer have high blood pressure, I feel fantastic! I actually like to shop for clothes now and am not repulsed when I see a pic of myself, that is huge for me! Wishing everyone continued success with their journeys! Hugs!

    ONE YEAR anniversary today

    Congrats to you! I am 11 months out yesterday and about where you are. I agree, this has been one of the best decisions I have made for myself. I feel great....finally! I really never had any hard time, I was lucky on that part. Best of luck to all the newer sleevers, you will too feel the same!
  16. Here is a pic of my Brothers and I this last Saturday. I can't believe I can see a pic of me and not be repulsed....it's kinda nice for a change!

    Need to get back on track!

    I am also in the same boat. I haven't gained any back ....occasionally I will be up 1-2 lbs but I haven't lost in 3 months. I haven't been eating but I have been drinking wine....lots of it! I started today.....no more alcohol, back to the workout regimen I was using. I only have 18 more to go....I can do this and so can all of you!
  24. kimmy*custis


    I am 5'6 as well and 168 lbs. I wear mostly M tops, some L. Pants vary from 6 to 10 depending....you will be in those sizes soon....I didnt think I would either but I am...it is fantastic to be able to shop normal sizes now! I was a size 20 pant and 2x, some 3x tops at the start.

    New addictions (nsv)

    Yaaaay....so happy for you. I am 18 lbs from goal and I have developed a bad habit but mine isnt good like yours! I have been drinking wine...and way too much. That would explain why I am stalled for the last two months! I have cut way back this week and have stepped up the gym so wish me luck! Congrats to you again...you look fantastic!
