    Great post Diva! I'd add,
    "DO keep a list of NSV (Non scale victories) to reflect on when times are getting hard. Can you walk up 2 extra flights of stairs before getting winded? Cross your legs?" and
    "DO NOT be afraid to change things if they aren't working. Stalls happen even gains happen. If you are on a long stall look at your eating and decided if changes need to be made. Utilize your tool!"

    My weight has been so slow recently (cry) but I have had a few NSVs I'd like to share.
    When I went to work out the other day and did the stationary bike I could see between my thighs where as I couldnt' before.
    I ran on the treadmill for like 3 minutes while still holding a convo
    Walking out of the Chiro's office I gave my husband a scare because he thought someone else was taking our son. "I saw some thin woman with our son by the hand then realized it was you."
    Getting my Saturday massage by hubby he said, "Its amazing how everywhere I touch now has bones sticking out."
    AND I'm shoping totally in the regular section now. I PAID OFF AND CUT UP MY LANE BRYANT CARD! FU LANE BRYANT (excpet your bras )

    There is NO REASON to stop nursing. I spoke to Dr Aceves who is a highly regarded Mexican Surgeon. If you know about the community in which he lives and works they know a helluva a lot more about breastfeeding than we do. Dr Aceves said it is great to continue breastfeeding after surgery. All the drugs will be out of your body. Many many women around the world live on way less calories per day than we will be consuming. Dr Aceves said many of his patients continue to breastfeed and do fine. I also talked to my OBGYN who delievered my first son and who is the head over the birthing center here in knoxville now. She checked to make sure lovenox was fine and said it is perfectly fine to continue nursing. It will not negatively affect my health or my son's. My PCP said the same thing. I had my surgery in October and here it is January. I've continued to nurse and haven't had any problems.

    I beg to differ. I'd say that emotion eating and addiction play the biggest part in weight gain. I know several people who eat only healthy foods but way too much of them. It is okay to enjoy ALL foods in moderation. If fastfood is a trigger for you (mine is sodas) then stay away from it. Make the best choices you can and understand that treats, like fastfood, are just that. They are not everyday food.

    Well I dont count fat as I think fat is good for you but the carbs is where the baddies are. I eat this maybe once a week when I've forgotten to eat or when the fam is having a treat.
    McDonalds=I get the McDouble and take the top bun off. I can eat the whole thing but I'm super stuffed
    Wendy's = Jr Bacon cheeseburger take top bun off or I get chili
    Chick fila I get the kids 2 strip meal with the sugarfree lemonade. I eat 1 and 1/2 strips and 2 fries.

    Bahahahaha You crack me up Rootman! Great NSV! I have a little nsv I always put my phone inbetween my legs when I drive or my hands if they are cold but since my thighs hardly touch anymore my phone just slides right into the floor and it's not very warm there anymore either!

    I have a couple to share today.
    I went to Ross last night to pick up some sheets. No sheets but I did find a matching Bra and Panties set. My 11 year anniversary is on the 21st of Feb and for the first time I can wear matching bra and panties. Pretty ones, sexy ones! I went from a 42 DDD to a 38D and get this, the price was 6.99 for the bra and 2.99 for the panties. NEVER have I spent so little on a bra before. My other NSV was today I had a hard day at work so I came home and go in the tub. While relaxing I relized I don't touch the sides of the tub anymore at all. Woooot!

    SouthernSleever got a reaction from H.150ToGo in Calling All Long Term Sleevers: How Much Food Does Your Stomach Hold Now?   
    I'm 15 months out and here are a few typical meals I've had over the past month.
    1 egg, 2 pieces of bacon and 1/2 a piece of toast
    1 piece of super supreme pizza, hand tossed dough, didn't eat the crust
    1/2 a sandwhich with 5-6 chips
    2 string cheese with 4 crackers
    1 cup cottage cheese
    1 Jr Bacon cheeseburger from Wendy's w/o the bottom bun
    3oz steak and two bites sides
    1/2 a side salad and 1 bone of ribs + 2 bites of a side dish.
    3 chicken wings and 2 french fries
    After each of these meals I am positively stuffed meaning I would get sick if I ate one more bite.

    Went shopping yesterday for festival clothes. I kept trying on size 5/6 pants and none fit right. About the 8th pair I decided to try on 3/4 and with just a little sucking in they were on. Big difference from 22/24 to 3/4. I still put my clothes in my 7 year old's drawer not realizing that they aren't his clothes.

    I could have gone back to work 1 week post op if I had a desk job. I have a very physical job (house keeping) and I went back about 3 weeks post op. It was rough. When I would bend over I would get dizzy. I was only working 1 day every other week so it was fine.

    SouthernSleever got a reaction from erp in Weight Gained Since Having Gastric Sleeve Surgery   
    Hi all! It has been quite a while since I've posted. I'll give a quick recap of where I've been and where I am now.
    2010-Highest weight was 282
    Oct/9/2010- Sleeve in Mexicalli by Aceves
    6/14/2013- LBL/BL/Arm lift in New Jersey by Dr Cappella (141 lbs)
    11/13 Separated from my husband
    1/14 - Lowest weight reached 123 lbs
    Current 150 lbs
    So my original goal was 155, I went below that with ease but I was quite active then. I got down to 141 and had 7lbs of excess skin removed and as a result of the surgery and being more active lost even more. Now my work has slowed as has my activity and I'm up to 150. My goal weight, where I felt the best is at 135 so I have 15 to get off. I am currently a size 6/7 and have a little bit of a booty (not a bad thing) but I cannot fit into all the clothes I want and also want to keep my results of my plastics looking good so I've got to get it off. I'm on day two of low carb, it always falls right back off after I buckle down. I'm still having great restriction when I stick to low carb and no sugary drinks.
    My downfalls are carbs, sweets, alcohol, not weighing every day and sitting on my butt.
    So almost 5 years out and it is still the best thing I've ever done. I'm down 132lbs...wow! My life is amazing (other than love life but I don't care about that..... today at least
    It's great to see some old folks on here! Btw my ex had the VSG also on 3/14 and is down 100lbs. He feels so much better and is in love again (we are still best friends).
    I've found that the last couple of relationships I've been in, I don't even mention that I've had the VSG, they don't ask since they have only known me as a regular sized person. What about y'all?
