    Seeing my tool in action

    Ok everybody - ive got it (not just the sleeve) We my friends, are not on diets anymore. No more calories-weighing-counting etc. We can eat whatever we want when we want and with the help of our inside measure we wont stuff ourselves ever again. So drink - eat, be sensible and NO MORE GUILT. We are "normal" now !!!! Dalite Love to all for the best new year so far. xxxx

  6. Hi All I was sleeved 29th November. Im feeling amazing today as i had my first compliments and it was so exciting. Ive lost just over 28lbs but not really focusing on weight too much as i dont feel that im on a diet for the first time in my life. Im not on any shakes or anything so a little worried about what im eating compared to you lot. But am making Soups with lots of vegetables and chicken pureed and juice myown fruit and lots of yoghurts (which im sick to death of) To be honest ive been sneaking tiny bites of chocolate in every few days as a treat. (but worried i will get carried away.) Anyway my november 2009 pals good luck to all and keep posting. Dalite xxxxx

    Tastebuds? ? ?

    ok - going off the subject slightly- but after losing nearly 28 pounds i actually for the first time tonight thought i looked slimmer in the mirror. Chancie and tiff you are my mentors really helping with any problems i have. I just read some of your older posts. Ive never been slim in my life so i keep thinking im going to "fail" somehow- but to be honest i cant really fail as i dont feel like im dieting at all. food is not bothering me at all at the moment - i dont feel like im missing out on anything and that was my biggest fear. And one last miracle i havent smoked a cigarette since the op not one. (yay) But apart from that i dont feel my tastebuds have changed much. Still getting used to my new stomach. Dalite ps happy christmas to everyone. xx
  8. i know its not really the place but dont we all need a smile now and again. Please leave me a joke so i can stop thinking sleeve thoughts for ten minutes. Dalite xxx:tongue_smilie:

    fed up today please tell me a joke

    omg I just laughed so loud the neighbours all came to see MORE MORE MORE PLEASE!!!!

    sleeve stretching

    me too i want to know?
  11. omg im with you all- i was sleeved 29th nov - im really happy but confused over food i get "hungry" but also dont know what sort of hunger. I finally put a name to whats happened to me twice FOAMIES!! i think thats what ive had could someone explain what it is. Ive been sick twice it wasnt the quantity but the food itself was a bit crap. Im eating ok on the whole but if i see another cottage cheese i will scream. Im not losing very quickly but its not bothering me. I dont think im having any more than about 750 cals a day. But im eating really well. Lots of home juicing and fresh Soups also fresh salmon. Yummy yummy. Anyway good luck all. xxxx Dalite
  12. HI I am now 2 weeks post op and if you read some od my earlier posts you will see i was really scared and messed up before the op. But 2 weeks later ive lost over 1 and a half stone or 10kg. I feel amazing - ive adjusted to the smaller amounts really easy. My only regret is that i didnt do this years ago. ive been to a restaurant with my husband and had special meals with the family at home and didnt feel anything but pure happiness. i wish you love and hugs with your decision. Dalite xxx


    Please dont quote me but I want to reassure you. I had my sleeve done on the 29th nov and exactly two weeks later im chasing my four kids aged 4,6,10,11. around the house. I was picking the 4 yr old up within the first week (but probably shouldnt have done) Anyway i really feel 150% amazing, still a little tired but great. Gool luck with your sleeve
  14. i want to be slim for the first time in my life.... to wear thigh high boots.... to shop for clothes instead of buying what fits...... to tart it up and not look too stupid.... to breathe walk not sweat .... to be happy ...............

    losing weight before surgery...

    Hi Megan I had my sleeve done last sunday at 6pm. I put quite a lot of weight on before the op as i was comfort eating so much. I was also bad the first few days of my preop diet and the day before surgery i had a biscuit and half a baguette (at my sons 6th birthday party). The suregery usually takes about an hour and a half to 2 half hours. Mine took less than an hour and was "text book" the surgeon said that the liver was very small. So even with eating like a pig and a few "cheats" i managed to be great the rest of the time. Hope my story helps. Ps less than 1 week in i feel great. Good luck on your journey. Dalite xxxx

    Did you tell?

    what an amazing bunch you/we are. The more i read the more i am astounded by our strength. I had my sleeve done a week ago and ive been emotionally and physically up and down all week. Ive got a huge gob (liverpool term for mouth) and told everyone i know and more wether they wanted too know or not. Im afraid if you would have told me a year ago you were having any stomach operations for weightloss i would not of thought kindly. Thats probably why i am personally OUT AND PROUD now. The world has different sets of rules for beautiful people and another for us fatties (dont be offended please). As a very strong and usually happy and some have said brave person i have always since day 1 been overweight. But on the odd occasion that i have lost weight i have noticed how people react differently with me. I am always confident, but feel a different, more positive response when i am "slimmer" there are a lot of people who do not unfortunately give us respect when we are not the "norm". Anyway i will stop babling, but would like to say a huge THANK YOU to everyone on this forum, we are amazing!! Dalite
  17. Hi all- Ive been a bit silly today and last night. I didnt over eat but i may have had a few more carbs than necessary. Today i had a large biscuit half a baguette and a piece of chicken covered in breadcrumbs. not exactly a lot but my surgery is at 5pm tomorrow with a 6 hour complete fast. My mum is here from england and she thinks i should cancel because i couldnt even stick to the pre-op sucessfully. Any ideas would be welcome at this late stage> xxx Dalite :001_cool:
