    I am loving my sleeve too

    That's the FIRST I have heard of that! Maybe I missed something but how does your VitD being off affect your craving for sweets? I just started taking VitD a few months ago cuz mine was low. When do you crave carbs? When it is Low or High....??? Maybe I need to research this a little more.... Thanks!! Nancy:biggrin0:
  7. I will tell you now that they didn't have the sleeve option when I had my band in 2004.....BUT if they did, i would have had the sleeve in a heartbeat!!! Don't get me wrong....I lost 112 lbs with the band, the first 2 years and felt great. Then I had a slip....had it replaced with another band....stupid me!....and then had a leak.... The surgeon, who I work for, said enough is enough how about a sleeve. So here I am 5 years later with a sleeve which I have had for a year. BUT....I am gaining weight. I was so used to not being able to eat so many things with the band because of things getting stuck, reflux at night, having to vomit when things would not stay down...etc....! After the sleeve I got spoled because I could eat all those things that I had problems with....but what am I doing? I am eating junk!!! Don't worry....I am working on getting back on track! All of these success stories prove I finally have the right tool to halp me lose all of my weight! Nancy

    HATED the band, LOVE the sleeve!

    I am a year post op. I must admit I do not exercise....or at least very little. I have started a new eating program, so I hope that will kick it in. I don't want to gain all my weight back that I lost with the band. Guess I am just being bad.....but worse than I think I am. Or because I work for the Bariatric Surgeon I could have "bariatric burnout" !!! Thanks for listening! Nancy:sad0:

    Band gone, sleeve in

    :thumbup:Hey Tracy!! I am glad to see that you decided on the sleeve.....you will not be sorry!!! I do not regret it at all....except the fact that I LET myself gain some weight back....it's my own fault and I know what I need to do....so I am going to put all I have into trying to get back on track and get to where I was when I had the sleeve!!! Good luck with your new tool!!! Nancy

    I am loving my sleeve too

    That DOES make sense!! I find that when I DO eat the right things...I stay fuller longer as you said. I just need to get back in the healthy habits again!! Thanks Elisabeth!!:scared0:

    I am loving my sleeve too

    I guess I cannot tell a lie....I have been getting back into some very old BAD habits.....carbs...etc....so it's my own fault. But I am always hungry....which I thought was supposed to go away with the sleeve??? And I work for the surgeon who did my surgery....so maybe I have "bariatric burnout" !!!

    Not exercising....and grazing.... I lost 112 with the band before the revision and I hate to gain it back.....I just want to start losing again so it looks like I need to get busy!!!

    How are all the revisions doing with weight loss now that you can eat things you couldn't with the band? I am at a total standstill....I lost 15 imediately after the revision, but have gained it back and not losing anymore. Is anyone else experiencing this? Nancy
