Don't do it. Don't do it!! I'm 4 months out and only lost 20 pounds. I can hardly get thru day. Dizzy all the time. Nauseated when I drink so impossible to stay hydrated. Can barely eat so only thing I get to eat is protein. When I splurge on fruits and veggies , it's at the cost of getting proteins in. Even with the consumption of those disgusting Protein supplements, my labs show I am wasting muscle. All for a 20 pound weight loss. I am sooooo disgusted that I was so vain to worry about being fat. I would give anything to have my life back.

Please don't go through with this surgery!!
