    Treated differently?

    The only thing I notice is in my dating life alot more men hit on me now than before. and they seem to be more interested in dating me seriously than they were before when I dated. I even had men actually not recognize me and hit me up on line after meeting before when I was heavier. I feel I look the same untill I see side by side pictures but random shots In my mind I look the same.

    I need Advice!

    I would wait , she is only 14 and still goin thru emotional time of just being a teen.... maybe with you getting the surgery and staring a healthier life style she will fall in suit.... at 14 I wouldnt of been able to make this kind of decision on surgery... definately have her see a counselor though and see where her head is at ...
  3. You will have lots of stall along the way, I am ten months out and I loose then stall, your body is catching up to the surgery it just went through. Keep doing what your doing and following the plan there is NO WAY you can not loose with the limited amount of calories you are taking in !! Keep the Faith Sister , it will happen ~~~
  4. the more you walk the better it gets!! also lots of gas X , only you can judge if something is truely wrong, if it gets worse then you may want to see your surgeon, do they have a line where you can call and speak with a nurse? that might relieve some anixety

    Slice of pizza

    the sleeve is only a tool for us and we have to make good decisions, its probably not normal for someone to eat Pizza that so early out but hey sometimes you have to make choices. I am 10.5 months out and had my first slice about 2 weeks ago for my son's birthday it tasted so good but then I thought this is what got me here to begin with , why didnt I get a salad or take the toppings off and eat just that..... so again its choices , I wouldnt make a habit of it ... I find that I can eat more and more as the time goes on so I try to measure my food and or buy food in certain oz so I know i will not over do this. anyhow good luck to you and try not to make it a habit .

    Complication insurance

    that is what I was also told, my insurance doesnt cover this surgery and said they would not cover any complicatios either.. My surgeon told me that I should look into supplimental bliss coverage , he had just moved locations and no longer had it , so he refered me to another surgeon whom did carry it. you have to go through one of thier sugeons that have applied for the extra coverage, it covers leaks , strictures ect..... I had no problems and had a piece of mind that my surgeon was one of the best..... ps the coverage cost me about 500 dollars... certian things I have a 2 year coverage other things only a few months depending on the complication....

    Dumping syndrome

    Are There Any Single Sleevers Out There..

    I am about 10 months out and its weird I had more confidence before weight loss than I have now. my skin use to look so good even being fat I filled out my body well , now I feel flabby and see hanging skin in areas it use to not hang what the heck .... also I find that its a lot harder to date when you really cant eat much and everyone wants to take you to dinner and drinks, I found a way to get around the drink part by saying I am not a drinker but the dinner part is becoming hard, I don't want to tell people I have just met that I use to be fat and have lost over 100 lbs... that is just not first date material when and if it becomes necessary I will tell them , I try to order something small but wth only being able to eat a small portion it is hard... i try to say lets do something else but men love to eat.... lol

    I dont eat cereal with milk but i do eat Kashi lean , it has lots of protien in it and i sprinkle it on yogurt, with sliced fruit for a treat....
  19. I didnt have a drain tube, my Doc said it depends on the individual and if it is needed or not. I would ask if they anticipate this or not

    Average hospital stay?

    I was there less than 24 hours... went in at about 10 am surgery done at noon, was up and headed home at 7 am
  21. Congrats ready to see you on the loozers bench !!!
  22. i too was a slow looser but i think my problem really was I was eating too much, I had surgery in Sept 2012 and I have lost 104 lbs so far.. which is incredible for me...... now my weight loss has come to a stop right now but I am working out and gaining muscle ... so you never know how you body is going to react to this..... Good luck and remember with such limted calories there is no way that you cant loose !!

    Super scared.

    hey so we all go through it there are some days I feel like I could eat a horse... but if you get back to basics and start with your protein you will get full.... most junk food like they said above is slider food. start new tomorrow and make sure you are drinking your water at least 64 oz and eat protien first meals, I bet you get fuller faster.... I also started to eat salad when I feel I want something more for me it fills me up and is not a slider..... choose wisely !! you can do this !!
