    2 Years Post Op-Before And After

    You are so teeny tiny. Wow.
  5. I would over eat and make bad choices. The reduction of hunger hormone was the most appealing to me. I thought about food all the time! I'm On week 7 now and eating whatever now and I've still eaten say a mozzarella stick but two bites satisfied me vs 5 sticks before My taste buds changed and now I eat less obviously but also crave tomatoes vs cake ( ha ha ha! If youve read my other post) its way easier to make better choices. At a restraunt I want healthier things. Tastes better. . hard to explain. I never thought I'd stop craving French fries Honestly this is one of the best things I've done. I still have a long way to Go but I just got out of " plus size" clothes and that was an awesome feeling!
  6. Caffeine gives me the runs badly. no more Starbucks

    How Many Pounds?

    I need to lose 130 total. I'm one month plus one week out and down 36. It's slowed to about 3-4/ week now the past two Weeks
  9. So i'm eating well, Protein etc... but i'm not sure if its because i'm eating too fast or what but i eat about 3-4 oz a meal and then all of a sudden i'm SOOOOO full uncomfortably full.... and i notice i can eat a little more than i could like 2 weeks ago (2-3 oz) I still feel kinda hungry at 2 oz.. (where as before I didnt) but then all of a sudden one bite will push me over. I went out to eat yesterday with a friend. I ordered sliders burgers and just ate the burger. They were like maybe 1 1/2" accross (small) I ate not quite two patties... i was fine, fine.. and then all of a sudden bam.. WAY too full that i threw up (first time ever.. not even after surgery) Now i'm panicking that because almost every meal i get this full i'm stretching out my stomach.
  10. in week 5.... i just usually am uncomfy full after every meal and i want to make sure i'm not eating too much... dang.

    Considering Surgery In Mexico....

    dr. kelly (loved him) did not require a deposit. I do not regret my Mexico decision a bit... i felt i got great care and it went very smoothly. I'd absolutely go back for plastics after my weight loss is all done
  12. week 1 clear liq week 2 full liq week 3 purees week 4 soft week 5 low sugar/low carb but anything i'm week 5. yay
  13. but then where does teh weight go? just vanishes? how does your body rid itself of weight?
  14. yes.. that is it! so its eating too much you think? dang.. it seems like i eat so little... i can take much smaller bites though... i take kinda normalish bites... and dont think i chew enough... i have to train myself....

    Die In Mexico?

    I went to dr Kelly. I never felt unsafe. I actually was worried and had a post before I went too. But Omar was with us everywhere hospital was clean and I felt I got great care. The biggest differences I noticed was less automation at hospital. more handwritten. Less computers.
  21. NO SYMptoms leak test was good to go... but that means i don't have to worry when i start eating regular food over the next few weeks? i heard of people finding leak 5+ weeks?

    Hey July Sleevers!

    Hey all.. i am on Day 7... i started Protein shakes yesterday and feel SO much better since i had one.. took me all day to sip one. I'm actually dying for pureed food though... i need variety and think i can get better Protein in. My dr. (dr. kelly) says day 22 for purees... so its a ways out... i'm hoping maybe he lets me go a little earlier Then again.. i'm a little confused by Cece's nutrition plan.. i wish it was a little more specific. maybe i'll ask in a different thread. I've lost 23 lbs so far including pre op and feel pretty great.
  23. So..... Is it like noticeable? Temporary? Preventable? Bound to happen or just a small possibility that it may happen.? Did it come back nicely? Different? I love my hair.
