I am almost 1 yr post op.
Sleeved March 10 2017
Best thing I have done.
Start 223lbs and now Weigh 115lbs. I am 5'2".
I eat every 2-3 hrs. I do not eat potatoes or Pasta or breads.
I eat substitutes instead.
I get my 80 g Protein in everyday which is priority to me and my Water intake which is mixture of water/ Vitamin water/ crystal light/decaf tea/decaf coffee/ sugar free Popsicles.
I have no problems except constipation which is norm from so much protein.
I just take Stool softener at times
If I eat a salad than I go without needing Stool softner.
I go to gym 2_3 X a week. I use to go 4-5 X a week.
I am no longer on meds for B/P,
Cholesterol nor diabetes. Everything is normal now.
I don't need a knee replacement now either. My knees feel good.
I just Thank God for this Blessing
For my health.
So you just do everything you suppose to do and everything will be fine.

You say that at six months you were "allowed so much more"...
You weren't forced to have more...
Why not go back to the way things were in the first six months...
Obviously you're not ready to make the change...
The mental game is just as important as the physical...
Go back, get your head right and move on only when YOU are ready...
Of course, I don't know nuthin' about nuthin'...
But it might be worth a crack...
Good luck @@sbg224
Keep us posted...
davsgdiva got a reaction from Steph~L~16 in I am alone in this
I completely understand where you are coming from. My family didn't support my decision either but I didn't ask them what they think. I just told them my decision and went from there. No, they didn't like it but it isnt their life. Also my last straw was when I was diagnosed with PCOS. When you have PCOS it makes it harder to lose weight crazy cycles painful cramps infertility and depression so my Dr recommended the sleeve (after I mentioned it). Currently, I'm waiting on insurance to approve (should be this coming week) I'm ready to start my healthy life find a hubby start a family. You are not alone. Go for it. Its your life not theirs. If its really in your heart....follow it.
