  1. I'm glad I found this thread..... my weight loss has slowed. I am 9 weeks post op but started at a lower weight and BMI. I need to not expect to lose it all so fast and be patient in the process. Thanks for all your inputs....very helpful for me. Lisa
  2. Today I am 6 weeks post op....25 lbs down. The Dr said my ideal body weight is 160 for my height (I'd like lower)....that would put me 15 lbs away from my goal. Revising my band to the sleeve was the BEST thing I could ever do.......Hope all my friends are just as happy with the sleeve.... Lisa
  3. Hey buddies....today I am 3.5 week post op and pushing 20 lbs down. I feel amazing....so far....best decision ever! Hope my buddies are all doing as well. I think the key to my fast recovery was getiing up and moving. Looking forward to hearing from all of you! Lisa
  4. Awesome.... We are all going through the same thing at the same time. So praying that this is the BEST decision EVER. I believe it will be! Lisa
  5. You look amazing. I am soooo inspired. I am getting the sleeve next week. I hope I have the same success

  10. This is exciting......lets get this going!
  11. Nice to have buddies in this process. Are both of you have band removal and sleeve at the same time? I start all liquids tomorrow! Lets kick butt!

    My new surgeon said there are more people with complications than successes. He also said they are doing very few bands anymore! Sleeves are the way to go....according to him. Looking forward to not tossing my cookies everyday! Good luck with everyone's journey!
  13. I also have a low BMI.... Dr. had no problem revising to sleeve (May 21, 2015...in 21 days). Actually he said he does so many of these due to the problems. He doesn't so the band anymore. Can't wait.
  14. Is there a reason they won't do the sleeve at the same time? Mine is being done at the same time...curious
