  8. Before all of you know it, you will be going to your6 month check up. Feeling A LoT LIghtER
  9. I felt exactly like this before my surgery 3/27. This is a tool that helps you speed up the process of something you could do your own. You will be happy when you are a few months out. It is an incredible journey. It will make you stronger Good luck. If you ever need anything I'm here

    Any March Sleevers?

    I find that this surgery is like having a baby. You can talk to 1,000 people and no 2 people have the same experience. I feel like each person has to find what works for them. I was sleeved 3-27 and have lost 73 lbs since surgery. Not allowed any fruit and I never eat it. But I cheat with carbs. I can eat pretty much anything without feeling bad. I joined this awesome fitness ace called 9 round. I have never had such am awesome workout and it only takes 30 minutes. Tones all those loose skin places except my lower belly. That's my story. So far
  11. 4 weeks out now and 32.5 lbs

    Surgery tomorrow

    I have read that they have to go back in if there is a leak. So I will pray for you that it doesn't have a leak. Hang in there. Let us know.

    Surgery tomorrow

    Hold a pillow over ur belly if u have to cough or sneeze. Ur throat will be sore from the tube and dry. Some hospitals have little sponges on sticks that u can ask for. Dip them in water and rub inside ur mouth until u are allowed to drink. And walk walk walk. Good luck
  15. Only 2 weeks out down 24 pounds . Every pound is equal to 4 sticks of butter. So there are 96 less sticks of butter on my body

    Connecticut Sleevers?

    I had mine at Yale one week ago today. Good luck with yours. Just remember each day is a little different and usually a little better. Walk walk walk as soon as you can and something helped me, Not sure if Hartford automatically oes it. But my throat was really dry and soar from being intubated. My nurses gave me these mouth sponges that I could wipe inside my cheeks. Really helped until I could drink
