    Any March 19 sleevers?

    Update for me-I was looking through these posts and saw that on May17th I was complaining about my weight not moving (I've posted since then just didn't remember to update) May 17th I was 227.4 and two days ago I was 213. On August 9th (I believe?) I got on the scale and I think I was 221/222. I got real serious and started using myfitnesspal so in about 3wks I lost around 10 lbs. but believeeeeeeeee me, it's from being strict and dieting, it's not from restriction. But, I'm glad the scale is moving in the right direction now. I hope you all are doing well and are happy!

    Depressed, disappointed, regretful...

    1st day post op I was puking up blood, had to stay extra days after that because has no desire to eat or drink. Once I got home still totally out of it and actually had MAJOR head spins/dizziness. By week 3 started to have more energy and actually ate. Give it alil time. You're still brand new and nervous. Best wishes to you!

    Injury but cant take ibuprophen

    Wow I wasn't aware (or didn't pay attention) that sleepers weren't allowed to take Advil, I take Advil whenever I have a headache. It doesn't bother/upset my stomach. Why is it a no-no??

    I dead drinking about a 6-8 wks after which most definitely answers the question,WHY have I only lost 40 lbs or so since 3/19/13. Try not to drink, It's all empty calories (wine for me)
  9. If you're ready for sex, feel up to it then have some...or lots enjoy!!!
  10. The alcohol/wine won't hurt your sleeve but it will sabotage your weight loss. I have the same issue...I love my wine and could easily drink a bottle myself. The past few weeks I've been drinking every wkend between graduations and parties and I either stay the same or put on a pound or two. It really will screw up the loss...it has for me. I now have to really think about where and when I will indulge in my wine it can't be a every wkend kind of thing. BTW, prior to surgery I'd have to drink a few glasses to get a buzz NOW I'm buzzing while drinking my first glass. Good luck to you...and I hope I can't control myself too. I didn't have this surgery for nothing.

    6 months out!

    You look fantastic~keep up the success!
  12. I had the lapband for 7 yrs. I lost all my weight looked great and then found out it slipped. I had to have it removed and 3 yrs later gained all my weight back and now have the sleeve (10 wks) from my experience, I can eat more now and go out to eat with friends and family. When I had the band going out to eat was a waste of money because I'd eat a few bites, excuse myself and then puke out the food. Good luck with your choice!
  13. Good for you girl~ you look fab*u*lous!! Congrats!

    3/19- For me this is way too slow. I'm seriously disappointed with the loss ESPECIALLY because I am STOPPING MYSELF not the sleeve stopping me from eating. At certain times I do feel full, BUT that fullness passes within an hour. And I do wait to drink after eating. I have an appt this wk with my NUT and surgeon but I know they will not make a big deal out of it. Last night I went to the movies and I could have eaten the whole bucket of popcorn smh. And though I lost 37 lbs, after surgery I wasn't able to eat for 3 weeks ( previous surgery experience, anesthesia makes me not eat for weeks) and lost 20 something lbs then. I am happy for everyone here that are doing well.
