    New and looking for help

    wow Phoenixrising, thank you for that answer. you have helped me make my own personal decision. For the lady in N.C. go the 200 miles. you will not need follow up care with the sleeve. find a nutritionist close to home. From all I have read, With the sleeve a good nutritionist is a God send. I am going to find one that has knowledge in the barriatrict field. Once you get the hang of eating right for your body, it should be simple.

    sleeve stretching

    the cottage cheese test? when would you do this after a month and then again after each year? seems like it is not going to stretch that much. Sleeve seems like it is still going to be a useful tool in keeping the weight off if I try at all.

    sleeve stretching

    how many Dr.do a barium swallow follow up after 2 years? not many if any i bet. they just go off of what studies are done by Universities. They are also selling this surgery, so they are only going to tell about the positives. The sleeve will only help us get to a healthy lifestyle. my never to be humble opinion.

    To carolynphx thanks for the reply. do you have any regrets? can you eat regular with you husband? mine is so worried I won't be able to eat with him any more. Make food he loves etc. we have been married 36 years, so hard to make a change now. Can I really expect to make this change for the rest of my life? or, is this just another weight loss deal, and the weight will come back on after a couple of years?

    Starting My VSG Journey. Surgery Aug. 11

    I have the same fears. I am really worried I will gain the weight back after all the expense and trama to my husband. I diet so well. I was even in an ad. Ihave gained it all back plus. I am so afraid I will do the same again. I have not schedualed surgery because of this fear. I know there are no guarentees. I keep lurking here to see if any long term people report in. I really want to do this, I just do not want to set myself up for failure again. :sad0: my first smilies. Ha
  11. oregondaisy, get to a counsler girl. try hypnotherapy. try a retreat. try a religion. try! you are not ment to be miserable in this life. You do not have to do it alone, find a group and get going on helping others, your problems will seem much smaller and you will feel so much better for having helped someone else. please try.

    Serious question

    I am not sleeved yet. You may want to try hypnotheapy. i see laurie miller in Orange co. CA She is great at single issue resolutions. I willbe seeing her regularly when i am sleeved. Also, try to take one class in something that you have always been interested in one evening a week at your local community college or city rec dept. just one evening a week. you may get addicted to learning. LOL or, volunteer one evening a week. ronaldmc donald house is my refuge. Hope you can trade one addiction for a fulfilling life style change.
