    I love, love, love, love, my sleeve. This surgery truly gave me a new lease on life. I am going to make the best out of it.

  4. Thank you so much for right this!!!
  5. I love this article. I am almost two years out and do feel like I was pushing my sleeve a little too much. I am going to watch closely how much food I placed on my plates.

    scale drama

    almost 2yrs out, and the scale is still my biggest challenge lol Sometimes I am in total control, only weighing myself once a week. And then, the obsession will kick in and I am on it 2/3x a day!! But my life is so much easier when I stay off of it, and keep doing the right thing food wise.

    Best of luck on your new journey! Make the best out of your new tool.
  8. I have to say, this new layout seems to make people less interactive . I remember in the past, members used to read each other's blog and left COMMENTS. Now it seems cold and distant. The whole vibe is difference. But it is still nice to see a few do take time to reply to posts, answer questions and show support. God bless. Show some love people!!!

    My boobs are my best friend.

    I wish I could offer you some hope, but I can't. I went from 40DDD to 36C. Honestly, I could probably fit a B, I just can't bring myself to buy such a small cup though lol!! I loved my big girls!!! I am getting them done this December
  11. It's not permanent!! and yes, it is a very unsettling feeling. I remember not being able to just get up and walk at the beginning. I had to sit up first, get my bearings, before standing up. You will feel better soon.

    Tryning to get to Onderland

    I feel your pain! I just broke a five weeks stall myself! I stayed stuck at 202.2 for all that time. Finally I dropped to 199.2 lbs, but today I went up to 199.8 lbs which is making nervous and frustrated !! I guess this all part of the process. All we can do, is keep doing the right thing( eat clean, water, exercise, rest) and wait for the darn scale to budge. Good luck

  16. He did my surgery. I had absolutely no complications. He's polite, funny, a little sarcastic( lol), knowledgeable and full of energy. I would use him again in a heart beat, and have referred two family members and a friend to him. Although post surgery, I have seen him only once. All the follow op appts has been with the nurse. Best wishes to you.

    Happy Saturday to you all! Why is the site so quiet?!?

    thank you so much!! will do
  19. I have been missing for a while! But I am back. Glad to see that most of my friends are still around and doing well. What a journey. My dad passed away( cancer), two months later my brother was shot while breaking a fight, and I miscarried my baby two day after his death. It was just too much. But, if it was not for my wls, you best beleive that life handed EVERY reason to stuff my face. I THANK GOD that I was sleeved. I had to find healthy ways to cop with all the emotions that came rushing at me for months. My sisters, husband, and friends came me going. I can honestly say, I made it. Now, things are looking better. Got a small promotion at work. And today I weigh in at 199.2 LBS!!!!! from 348 lbs. I am loving life. I am grateful for life and for the people around me. I am keeping my stress level low. No drama here. Will not allow it. Period. Later friends.
