  1. How are you doing?

  2. My journey is great. I love this sleeve!!! How have you been?

  3. Hey Peggy! I have been doing great. I haven't weighed this week so I will let you know this weekend how much I have lost. I can really tell with my clothes. I don't want to get obsessed with the scale so I promised myself once a week. I eat yogurt, cottage cheese, pudding, oatmeal, or beans. I don't mind the mushie stage. I think regular food would hurt right now anyway. How was returning to work? I know my first week returning to work was exhausting!! I was so exhausted the first week. Now I feel much better. Thanks for checking on me. How are you feeling about your decision? I hope you feel better now.

  4. I agree!! Tuna needs the bread!!! LOL I am doing great. I haven't weighed this week, but it feels like more is gone. I promised myself I would weigh once a week. I don't want to get obsessed with the scale. I have been doing great. Mushies are okay. I actually like cottage cheese without crackers...LOL. Thanks for checking on me. How have you been? Have you lost much?

  5. Just checking on you. How are you feeling? I hope better.

  6. Glad to hear you are still doing great. I know you said I would eventually love this sleeve....but I didn't think you would be right so soon. I love it. Talk to you soon. I go back to work tomorrow. Wish me luck.

  7. I am doing great also. I have to got to Costco and get those shakes. I have been trying the Atkins Advantage. Good luck tomorrow. Isn't this sleeve great!!

  8. I think I mixed up the message between you and Brenda. LOL. I am glad the clot is not bothering you anymore. I am still praying for you.

  9. I am doing great. I go back to work tomorrow also. I have been drinking the Atkins Advantage. I will have to go to Costco and get those shakes. It is an adjustment this whole thing, but really worth it.

  10. How are you doing? I am loving this sleeve! You were so right. Thank you for the encouragement.

  11. I hope you feel better. The nausea must be pretty bad. I also regretted the surgery the first few days I got home, ofcourse mine wasn't as bad as yours, but now I love this damn sleeve! You will too when you get over this hurdle. Did Dr. Zane give you some nausea meds? I am so sorry this is not going well. Believe me...it will get better. I was so depressed I wanted to go to Kaiser and find my stomach in the trash, but now I love it. I will be praying for you. Keep me posted.

    I am just checking on you. I hope your arm is doing better. I know you said you are in a lot of pain. You are in my prayers. I hope you have a speedy recovery and feel better soon.

  15. The Heparin (blood thinner) is given every couple of hours post surgery.

  16. Let me clarify.....the 10 pounds is including the Pre-OP diet.

  17. Blood Clot!! are you serious?? How did you know it was there?? I am praying for you. What were the symptoms????

  18. Hey Brenda,

    How are you doing? I am getting better. I am excited that I have lost 10 pounds but am still having difficulty with the intake of fluids. How about you?

  19. How are you doing? I am down 10 pounds and starting to get happy about this whole thing. Have you weighed yet?? How much fluids are you getting?? I don't know if I am doing too good with the fluids.

  20. OKay I am excited now!! I have lost 10 pounds in one week!! Tomorrow is your day. I am so happy for you. I will be praying for you. You are in my prayers. I can't wait until you are on the other side. Oh, don't be suprised if things you liked before taste different afterwards. I can't stand the shakes I liked before. I now drink the Atkins protien shakes. Keep me posted! :)

  21. Same here. It is just so difficult to drink. I think maybe the inside is still so swollen. I don't know. I have been so frustrated. I have even had regrets!
