  1. Hi, I was sleeved in December 2010. I was doing great and lost 100 pounds. Last year I hurt my knee and needed surgery. Since then I have gained 32 lbs back. I wasn't able to excercise like I had been and I let my eating habits get very bad. I am ready to get back on track. For the last two weeks I have been doing vegetable/fruit smoothies and trying to keep my eating in check. I was wondering if anyone could give me some infomation on the "pouch test" and just give me support. Any advise would be appreciated.
  2. Thank you very much Stephanie. I have that app and Im going to start using it. My refrigerator just broke so I am starting new with all healthy food. I guess everything happens for a reason and it is actually a blessing it broke. I am very bad about Protein, and I know its the most important. I started the 5 day pouch test today. I think I needed it just to get my head on straight and remember I am a bariatric patient and I need to eat like one. And as for my knee it it ok, not 100%. My dr told me to take it slow with the exercising. I have to just do low impact exercises. So I plan on walking and weight training. Thanks again for your advise.

    Calling all Nurses.....

    I am an OR nurse in houston, Tx. I haven't been sleeved yet but Hopefully I will be soon. I have a 130 lbs to lose. I cant wait! I know I will enjoy being a nurse much more with the weight off. My feet are happy that I am getting this done.
  6. HI, I am so excited!!! I am 34 and have been overweight my entire life. I am a nurse in the OR and I have been wanting this procedure since I first saw it. When I found out my insurance (bcbs TX) started covering it I made an appointment right away. Tonight I have a "webinar" with the Dr.'s office and then Friday I go see him. Tomorrow I go see my regular Dr. so I can start my three months supervised diet. I really hope i can have the sleeve in October. I am so glad I found this forum. I think it is so great how everyone supports each other. I look forward to sharing my journey with you all.:biggrin0:
