  1. I officially have lost 50 pounds since surgery 10/21/15!!! I'm super excited but my clothing inventory is decreasing, when did everyone go shopping? I'm scared to buy anything and have to give it to someone a week later lol

    I would suggest counseling. Since I had the surgery in Oct 2015 I have lost 44 lbs and my husband can't keep his hands off of me. It's actually making me feel more attractive then ever. Good luck
  4. I just lost a total of 44 pounds with the sleeve. I am not at my goal weight but am having some loose skin. My brain is working over time and I had a few questions that hopefully someone can answer. Does loose skin add to your weight? My reasoning is if I get skin removal I will be somewhat at my goal weight. I have been thinking about this for a while so anyone who can help me I will appreciate.

    Skin removal

    Yes I was watching that the other day. My skin isn't that bad, I can hide it with clothing and Spanx but my sister in law had a tummy tuck and thought it may be a good idea for me. Thanks
  7. Hello all, I am progressing nicely but I am having some struggling moments and thought I would seek help. First, I am feeling hungry every hour on the hour, I can take it throughout the day but at night it literally wakes me up and I don't want to eat bad, so what are you guys snacking on at night that is healthy? Also for the women who have monthly cravings, what are you guys snacking on? Thanks for any input!!!
  8. Hi everyone, I am 2 months post op and I feel great. I have lost almost 40lbs since surgery. I wanted to know what everyone's exercise routine is. I walk a bit and I know I should do more but I feel like there's not enough time in the day. I need to hear what people do and how often for a push. Thanks for any input I get!

    Thanks everyone. I need to step my game up lol
  10. I am one month out and everyday it gets better. I'm sure you have seen posts of people saying this. I felt this way as well and had to learn it the hard way. When I came home from surgery I decided to cook ribs for the family being as though they were eating out when I was in the hospital. When the ribs were done I fed everyone and about 2 hours later all I could think about were those ribs. I snuck into the kitchen ate the smallest rib and thought the same, if I chewed enough it would be ok. Boy was I wrong and I think the experience is what I needed to know that my new stomach had to heal. I am now eating with no issues but trust me you are not the only one!!!
  11. The whole process was fairly quick. I started late Aug and received the surgery late Oct. My insurance was approved in three days. The process went fairly quick maybe a little too quick for me it was surreal. They weren't too strick on pre weight loss and I didn't need to do the liquid diet.

    Any Philadelphia Sleevers

    @@baileyj908 I used Penn metabolic and loved the experience. I had Dr. Noel Williams who is one of the best surgeons.

  15. I am about 4 weeks post op, I was cleared for soft foods and haven't had really any problems with a spoon or two of foods butttttt at times I get so frustrated that I can't eat just a little more of my favorite foods. I thought that phase was over weeks ago. Every day is battle of me vs food.

    Everyday is a battle

    Thanks all. My post was not intended to say that I am giving in to anything its more of me realizing that my relationship with food was far greater then I had imagined before. The thought of being restricted still is a struggle but something that I know is beneficial in my new life. Thanks for all of the positive posts. I know I have a long road ahead and am ready to start the challenge
  17. So I am 3 weeks out of surgery but I am so a scared to eat anything considering how it may make me feel. My question is what happens if a person doesn't try foods during the new phases.

    Not eating

    Thanks guys I guess I'm just waiting to eat again without any discomfort of gas every single time I eat or belch. This makes me not want to try new foods. I just want to feel normal again. I haven't talked to my nut yet but I will get in contact with her. Also I don't want to chicken out I just want this to go quickly
  19. Hi everyone, I have a doc appointment next week which will make me 3 weeks out. Am I supposed to wait til this appointment to progress my next food stage? I'm not sure if I should be on liquids this long.
  20. Hello everyone. I am 7 days post op and am down 15 pounds. It's not much but seems like enough at this moment. I am miserable with not being able to eat as I am still on liquid diet but was wondering how much are seasoned sleevers eating right now? I don't see the light at the end of the tunnel yet.
