  1. My mom had the band and had a lot of those complications right after having it placed. It just depends on the person!! I have second guessed myself before also, but then I bring myself right back to "ok I might be able to lose some weight on my own, but will I be able to keep it off? NO!!" You can do this!!

  2. First, congrats on finally getting a date!! I know it feels like forever, and I'm still in that forever stage waiting to be approved and get a date going. I have babies and a hubby at home and all I think about is well what if I didn't do this? Then how long would I be here? Who knows, all I know is that I am taking the leap to make sure I am here in the future, because these surgeons do this everyday, and everything is going to go so well. Please don't worry about anything, just know you are doing the right thing 100%!! :)

  3. I'm right there with you, just starting out and wanting to try and lose weight, but afraid of the dreaded stall. I can't lose too much, as I'm right of the edge of BMI requirements for my insurance. It's a weird situation, it's great to lose weight, but not when in this situation. My ABSOLUTE favorite Protein Shake is Syntrax Nectar chocolate truffle. I add banana sometimes and always Peanut Butter or peanut powder. So delicious

  4. So I had my surgery and got released today. It was as bad as I thought, the gas pain in my leg is awful! The doctor said he could only do the sleeve portion and couldn't do the reroute of the intestines, something about the instruments were bending. I had to spend two days in the hospital and I was going stir crazy. Right now i'm walking and I even showered today which felt great. So i'll see how everything goes.

    Eek!! Sounds like a whirlwind of a time. Good luck and keep up the good work with walking!!
