    Distant Husband

    If I may, as a man, husband, & counselor, ALOT of men are nervous about the attention you will get because of weight loss. It's not that he doesn't want you to lose weight, but what if there was a Bbd (bigger better deal). You are his and he is afraid that he will not be able to compete. This may not be true for all but this is for some. Seek a professional and be honest this can be a great situation for both of you.

    One Week Out

    I had my Sleeve las Monday, I have experienced very little to no pain. I've only had a minor discomfort on days where I haven't taken pain meds. I am really tired of liquids, but other than that I have no complaints!!!

    Insanity Anyone?

    Just wondering if anyone has tried p90x or insanity after the sleeve and had success. I am 2 weeks out and am contemplating trying this after the first of the year once my healing is over.

    Can I Ever Have A Diet Soda Again?

    Don't do it, find something else you like and indulge there, the carbonation is so bad for sleeve. Once it's stretched there is nothing the doctor can really do as you are already at 85% stomach loss. If you like the taste let it go flat then drink it but please don't jeopardize your sleeve.

    Anyone Not Tell Family Or Friends?

    I'm not so sure that telling people you lost weight through diet and exercise is lying. I just had Surg last Monday and had lost 45 over my three month pre op diet. If you do not abide to the nutrition plan/diet you can defeate all that the surgery can do. I did tell family, friends, and co-workers, I wish I wouldn't have. That is all they want to talk to me about, I'm no longer buddy, I'm the dude who had weightloss surgery. But I would not feel bad telling people I didn't know I lost by diet and exercise at all, because I feel that surgery alone allows for bad habits to slip back in, eating responsibly is a life long habit.

    Please God!

    Just think of it this way. From what you have experienced, once youve lost your weight you will have the ability to see men for who they are as people and respond accirdingly. Just remember who you are and that God has someone who will love you for you.

    Cheating? Already?!

    My wife made chicken pasta for the family and I was very envious. Of course right now she could have cooked chef boyardi and I would have probably had the same response.

    Please God!

    I think bigger girls are so cute, it's a shame that our society is so size concerned. I didn't get my surgery because of the way I look, I got it so I don't get sick.

    Please God!

    Lol, I am not worried about looking ugly, but I wont look mean anymore. I like when people cross the street when I walk by. I'm a big Teddybear, now I will look like a starved Teddybear...

    Too Big For Wls?

    I'm sure it depends on Dr as well.

    Too Big For Wls?

    I was 375 at 5'7" and was told by my physician my insurance would only allow surgery once I got under 55 bmi, at the above stated weight I was at 59 bmi. So yes being at a higher bmi above 55 increases fatality in this surgery. There are other factors such as age over 50, being male ( no, seriously ) and having other issues like heart disease, kidney issues etc

    Protein Drinks...

    I use 8 oz coffee 2 scoops of muscle milk, 1 tbsp creme brûlée creamer, 3 packets sweet life sweetner or splenda. Good breakfast...make sure the muscle milk is chocolate.
  21. My Dr told me to be eligible for surgery I would need to lose 30 lbs. I was thinking to myself, if I could lose weight I wouldn't need the surgery. But I am 21 days into my pre-op diet and have lost over 15 lbs. My wife who is also having the sleeve is in her clear liquid diet, I have decided to support her by limiting my diet to full liquid. This has helped, most days I have been able to keep my calorie count to under 1600. Wish me luck, we would like to get me scheduled for surgery by end of November. Wish me luck.
