    Would you do it again?

    Absolutely. Only wish the sleeve had been around in 2006 when I had the band. This is so much better. I am so happy!!! Sent from my DROID RAZR using VST
  2. It may be a little bit of a pain sometimes; but it is extremely helpful in keeping me honest about what I'm eating. When not keeping diary; it is easy to eat way too many calories. I use My Fitness Pal, as do many others here. Makes it much easier. Good luck. Sent from my DROID RAZR using VST

    July sleevers please check in..

    HW-277; pre lap-band in 2006 SW-222; Sleeve date 7/16/13 CW-186.3 Extremely happy that I made the decision to revise from band to sleeve. Sometimes wish I was losing faster; but glad to be steadily losing and hopefully will have fewer loose skin issues since listing more slowly. Sent from my DROID RAZR using VST

    If you are following your eating plan, then a few things could account for the gain - Fluid retention; muscle gain if exercising; and/or PMS/hormones. Have you measured?? I had a frustrating "gain" week; not sure of reason; but I measured & was down a number of inches. Don't be discouraged, just keep doing what you are supposed to do. The scale will move.

    Bands to Sleeves less successful

    Like many others said, I would ask to see the data. My doctor said that since I was pretty successful with losing with the band before it slipped & malfunctioned, I will do fine. I think a lot of people learned how to "cheat" with the band by eating/drinking high calorie things that aren't restricted by the band making their choices a big part of the failure & I think people who then are revised to the sleeve; but carry that attitude with them, will fail with the sleeve also. Like the band, it is a tool. I believe a better tool, but still only a tool that must be used properly to succeed Sent from my DROID RAZR using VST
