Hi... I had my sleeve done last tuesday. I seemed like a long wait but now its behind me. I am trying hard to stay positive but sometimes thats not easy. I made a strong choice to not tell many people I was doing this. i didnt want anyone trying to talk me out of if nor did I want to worry about their opinions on my choice. I told my children, my boy friend and my good friend but thats it. Now Im finding emotional support lacking. Im having a hard time with my diet. I cant put one more bite of jello into my mouth and Im not sure I am getting enough to keep me strong. Im not hungry and my pain seems to be getting better but I feel I need something more substantial Its making me feel emotionally week and giving me regret. I was hoping reading and talking with someone who has been here would help! So I googled and here I am!! I am so hoping I made the right choice. I guess its not abnormal to feel some fear ... and I think thats what I am feeling. scared I made a mistake.

I would appreciate any guidance and support and even dietary advice!!

Thank you
