    Does anyone regret it?

    Keep Miralax on hand and take it as soon as you feel you need it. It has worked great for me!

    Teachers :)

    I had my VSG on 4/9 (Wed), the next week was spring break, and I went back to work the Mon after break. I had am EMD class and was cleared for performing restraints upon returning. I was tired but better physically each day than I was before the surgery. Good luck!
  11. I can see where frequent changes can help! I will try that when the stall visits again!
  12. I was sleeved on 4/9 and could not break a stall! I met with my nutritionist who has me eating 6 4 oz meals/day with net calories between 800-1000. I eat 2 oz protein and 1 oz carb and I oz fruit. The scale has gone down 4.5 lbs since I met with her last week, so it does work!!! The 400-500 cal days were not doing it! ????????????????
  13. You look fabulous! Congrats!

    I'm back! And at goal!

    Congrats on goal and welcome back! Glad you're home!
  15. I am also a lap band survivor. My band eroded in January 2012 and required emergency surgery and a week in the hospital. I had to wait for the BMI requirements for my insurance to approve the sleeve. I was 20 lbs away from my highest weight when I started my pre-op diet. I had the sleeve on 4/9 and love it! No throwing up, no chest pains from things getting stuck, am sleeping at night without getting up sick, no meds for acid reflux, etc. I can eat any meat. I have not tried bread (other than flat bread which is fine) or pasta. I have not tried carbonated beverages either. I love my maintenance-free (no fill) sleeve. I have lost 40 lbs so far!!!

  17. I will be two months post-op on June 9 and lost 10 lbs pre-op and 37 total. I oftentimes feel like it should be more but the average is not bad.

    MS - Gulf Coast Area

    Sleeved on 4/9/14 by Dr Avara in Ocean Springs. I had the lapband until 1/9/12 when it eroded. Dr Moore was my surgeon then. I am starting over with the sleeve with no complaints!

    Slow weight loss

    I was also sleeved on Apr 9 and have lost 11 pounds. I can really tell a difference in my clothes. I know I'm not getting enough protein.
