  1. I had mine done Jan 30 of last year and still have good restriction. Im steady at 154. Any other Jan of 13 sleevers?
  2. Your doctor cannot speak for every sleeved person so he can suck it. I am 15 mos out and have not gained but a few lbs over Xmas and lost it. I tbink its highly Unethical for a Dr to tell a person that they will gain the weight back. Do you have to watch yourself? Yes but I still have excellent restriction.
  3. I have 2 ftiends who had the band. First one lost 37 pounds and that was it. Second one only 15. Both were a high bmi. The first one will be getting the sleeve from band revised. I guess it depends on the person and how much they want/need to loose. I chose the sleeve cuz I knew I would be more successful and successful I was. Lost 90 lbs and wear a size 8. Good luck.

    Fat Shaming

    In 1996 I went to the ER but needed a copy of the clinical notes for something and I was shocked to see that he wrote Obese female because I thought I was just overweight not Obese. Opened my eyes but even then I was probably 215. My highest was 247 right before surgery. I hope to never be labled as obese again.

  10. Yep you will be fine. I was a first in my Doctors practice. I took no opiates to be put under and had zero opiates prescribed to me. O am sure there were some who were prescribed them and did not have to take them. I have been sober of opiates for 8 years. Now If I can be sober of my newest addiction. M&M's. Good luck Dadi we are pulling for you!!

    I am also approaching my one year anniversary. I am happy that Ive lost 92 pounds but put 5 back on over the last month. I still have good restriction for almost a year out but Im in therapy for my food issues. Losing and all I went thru was the easy part and the hard part will now begin. Keeping it off. I have a whole wardrobe of beautiful clothes to hopefully help me stay on track. I am 10 pounds from my personal goal but who knows if I will ever get there.

    Im sad because I might not qualify

    Why do some Drs do a sleep study and some dont? I never had one. I made my husband stay up before I was qualified in Dec12 and he said I did snore but never stopped breathing to his knowledge. How would you know if you had it if they never test for it. And I still cant sleep comfortably on my back and Ive lost 88 lbs. I get a lower back ache when I do. I went from a DD to a C. My boobs are tiny now. Dislike lol

    Anyone Else Go Offtrack & Gain?

    I did gain 4 pounds but Im almost a year out and I WAS only 5 pounds to goal but happened to gain 4 during holidays. Now is the time Im getting scared because to be perfectly honest I can eat whatever I want only small amounts but I went all Ozzy Osbourne ( off the rails in a crazy train) at Christmas. I know I need to amp up my healthy eating and walking cuz now the hard part begins. Keeping it off. I was cocky thinking it was so easy but now its 4 lbs and that can turn into 40.
  15. I dont think you will be bitchy when you cant eat. You may have to force yourself. You will be okay.
