    Any july 8 sleevers?

    I don't have a number in mind really. I just figure I will know at the point I feel good. The 150's would probably make me happy. I am feeling so good already. I'm probably thinner now than I've been in 20 years! Haha

    Doing well. I was just wondering about everyone myself. Started at 217 and down to 174. I've had to empty my closet twice and need to do so again. My monthly support group has clothing exchanges too. Feeling good and wishing I had done this sooner!

    Fall cravings

    Thanks to JessicaAnn for the creamy salsa recipe. I made this for my family today and they loved it. I think next time I will add a can of beans for a little more protein boost but the chicken shredded so nice that it went down well for me!

    Weight gain after surgery

    I weighed in surgery day at 206 i think and I left weighing 219. I thought "what the heck did I do?" But thanks to the knowledgeable people here I realized that was water weight and GAS omg the GAS! I lost it within 10 days or so though. Hang in there!!

    7/8/2013 HW: 217 SW: 206 CW: 182 Funny as it sounds, I get confused if my HW was 217 or 219...the 200's almost feel long gone now!

    Hope the vacation part is at least fun. I'm one week into a huge kitchen remodel so its really been tough. Thankfully my husband and I don't eat much having both been sleeved or we might starve. At least I can still get in my Proteins via drinks, yogurts, cheese, etc. but we have eaten out more which doesn't always agree with me. Happy with progress so far since we've now made it to the 8 week mark. Down to 186. I just broke a 2nd stall that lasted about 10 days. I have so much more energy now! Feels really good. Hope everyone is doing well!!

    Weird Noises

    Totally normal and it does eventually stop. I'm almost 8 weeks out and my tummy no longer makes sounds like a freight train rolling through the house! Thank goodness!

    Congratulations! What a super feeling!

    Surgery a week apart

    That's so cool that you are embarking on this journey together. My husband and I had ours 15 months apart. If you are like I was, at the end of week 1 I was beginning to feel better. Take care of one another! It's a great journey I am finding out!

    I was sleeved on July 8th. My highest weight was 219 and I'm down to 188. This week finally seems like everyone is starting to notice and I've been complimented all week. It's really nice and feels so good! Congrats to us all so far!!

    Mine was thrown off right after surgery so I don't know if that means to expect it now or when I would have normally expected it. But nothing yet.

    Happy One Month to us all! It's certainly been an interesting month. I think we've all been through so much. From eating issues, liquid diets (stay away broth!), constipation, diarrhea, weight stalls and all of the crazy emotions! And through it all, as I work myself back into a new "old" skinnier wardrobe, I think to myself "would I do this all over again?" The answer....absolutely!!! Have a super day everyone!!

    Mine finally broke. I ramped up my protein to about 90 gms per day and that worked. Go figure!

    Warning gross poo question

    I am going on 4 weeks post op and even though my diet now includes "mechanical, mushy" items, mine are still liquid. Doctor told me to take one Imodium a day and that at least keeps it down to once per day. So sadly, I have it timed to have my liquid BM in the morning, take my Imodium and that's usually it for the day. The "percolating tummy" sounds have finally stopped thank goodness! Talk about noisy!!
