    jujubslim got a reaction from mimisturn in Do u ever wonder how people here eat such a perfect diet - all the time?   
    Personally, I strive to be one of those perfect eaters. I'm only 5 weeks out so it's all still new to me. I know I won't be perfect but that's my goal. My thinking is what I've done up to this point in my life isn't working. I didn't put my body through these drastic measures to keep abusing it. For me it's important to be accountable and aware of what I'm eating so I faithfully log everything, that's what works for me. I certainly don't pass judgement on others, but I'm certainly going to try my hardest to stay away from those trigger foods, I've had enough of that junk to last a lifetime.

    I had my surgery at Penn by Dr Williams 6 weeks ago. I had a great experience, he's the head of the bariatric program I chose him just because he had the most experience and I wanted to find the best surgeon possible. He's a busy guy, you probably won't get a lot of face time with him but he's very professional, very knowledgeable he made me feel very safe and comfortable. His office runs very smoothly, everything went well. They're very efficient and made sure I didn't run into any delays.
    I've been to support groups and I met dr koras he's another one that is great. He's very personable and informative. His patients at the support group were very fond of him, you could see they had a good rapport.

    You may want to double check your weight loss benefit. If you get the band and God forbid there are issues that prevent it from working for you your insurance may not cover another surgery.

    jujubslim got a reaction from BeagleLover in How long was your hospital stay?   
    2 nights for me. Had my surgery first thing Monday morning and was discharged Wednesday. Dr said I could stay an extra night if I wanted but I just wanted to go home and get the iv out. My hospital roommate had surgery Monday evening and she had to stay an extra night because she wasn't being very mobile

    No they dont a big pet peeve of mine! I usually end up with a cardigan. I have the short ones or longer ones and I'll wrap a thick belt around my sweater so I have some kind of shape.

    It doesn't irritate me, I just feel bad for them. I think the maintenance stage will be difficult when the restriction is less and you haven't changed your eating habits. I wish everyone success but there's a reason statistics show a lot of people experience weight gain after maintenance.
