    Are you sure you are drinking enough ? I haven't had this - but I was sleeved a few days after you.

    Back to work

    I chose my schedule. My doctor agreed if that's what I wanted. I have been fine - which I knew I would be. A little tired after work but I haven't missed a day. I walk 12k steps a day. I've lost 14lbs. I have 2 small boys to take care of also - sink or swim and I'm swimming and doing great !!! It's different for everyone I suppose !!!
  4. Oh my god this is horrible. I am so sorry to hear this. I wish I could offer you help .... my heart breaks for you. Hugs

    I had breast cancer 4 years ago. You are tough to get back to work thru chemo and radiation. 5 days will be more than enough for you !!! Good luck !!!

    It's so awesome. I've lost many more inches than pounds Such an amazing feeling. Been clearing out my closet this morning ... feels really good and motivating

    That's awesome !!!! I think we all can manage our weight if we really work at it and learn ( well me anyway - I honestly didn't understand as much as I know now )

    Back to work

    I did well. I'm an Ops Mgr at a large trucking company. I have 74 people that report directly to me. We are in a busy time of year. I didn't have pain / I was sore. I think the secret is staying active. I am also a single mom w 2 little guys and I don't have back up. I kept my protein intake up, took walks during the day ( 12k steps a day ) and stayed positive. I'm doing really well. I had my one week appt Thursday and am down 11 lbs. my vitals are all good. I didn't have any medical issues prior to surgery - I was simply overweight and couldn't lose on my own. This was a good decision for me.
  10. Every.single.person is an INSPIRATION for me !!!!! Thank you all so much !!!!
