    Boogie Size...

    A bougie is what the doctors use to determine the size of your sleeve. Many compare the sizes to a marker, pencil, pen, etc. I believe 32 is the smallest and 42 may be the largest

    Feeling No Support

    I don't know if jealous is the word. Misinformed seems better. It is a nasty stigma place on WLS. The point is you are doing this for you which means you don't need their approval. Keep that in mind on your journey to better health. You don't need others approval to want to be healthier.
  5. Days 1 through 14 seems the same the diet post op I must follow but the rest is different.
  6. First, I think this is a great topic. However, 3 months on protein shake exclusively is too long. The purpose is to learn to eat not to avoid eating. There is already a two week pre-op requirement. I don't think it is a great idea. A good medium would be to incorporate one shake daily. after the post op liquid diet while introducing new foods.

    Feeling No Support

    I am an African- American female and this type of surgery is not supported. I have been raised love yourslef and other no matter the size, shape , or color. I have lived by this advice my whole life. I agree with it whole-heartedly. However, I would love myself more if I were more active and had less pain. My advice, I only told my husband. That's it! I go online for support, and read information. I can't live for them. I live for God and I have to be alive to do his will. I hope that helps.

    Surgery Yesterday

    Which crystal light did you use? I like the fruit punch because it taste sweet without sugar. However, my hubby hates sweets and favors the grape even the walmart brand is great.
