    I wish I knew how to quit you, (fill in the blank)!

    I'm right there with you JustWatchMe. I just stopped having a caramel mocha every morning, caffeine, sodas, dairy and refined sugar. Started this process last week and I felt angry! Lol I'm definitely in a better place this week and I feel like I can go on (in my Celine Dion) voice.
  2. Sooo...Ive found my way to this new app. The jury is still out. Insty who guys, today was our first Thanksgiving, and my goodness I dont know if I was prepared! Officially down 92 lbs from 300 with SD of 2/13. Im proud that I didnt go completely crazy and definitely happy Ive got this sleevw to give mw some control!

    Attention February 2013 Sleeve Buddies!

    I hate buffets now!
  7. Has anyone gotten approved for a panni or reduction post sleeve with United Healthcare? If so, how was the process?
  8. Its been great! My dr. Allowed me to start at 5 weeks and if I dont work out the scale gets stagnant, but if i do there is a nice steady drop.

  13. I believe it...those things are horribly disgusting. I almost vomiting bc the consistency is repulsive. I cant even look at another protein shot now and that incident was over a month ago ha ha

    Lying about Weight Loss Surgery !

    Final comment....hopefully. People have to stop blaming the forum when things don't end in their favor. You post a thread here to evoke responses and you just have to suck it up when you get feedback that may be unwanted or an opposite position than yours. Everyone have a fabulous day!

    Wow 40 pounds lost at 5weeks !

    Walking is def helping me to shed the lbs. Im just over 2weeks post op and down 25lbs. I noticed over the past week that if I walk I lose 1-2lbs a day, if I don't the scale doesn't do much. Im not doing Protein shakes either...they make me gag. I've just started stage III and am doing high protein foods like eggs, Greek yogurt, meats etc.
