    I’ve gained 34 in 2020 (Covid) and i obviously have not gotten a handle on the emotional eating. i had only lost 100 lbs with the sleeve (which was 50%) of the total I needed to loose to get to the ideal weight my dr suggested .. then it plateaued after 1.5 - 2 Yrs and dr said that’s great and that the honeymoon was over I needed to focus on maintaining from here. The support from the clinic hère ands after 2 years and I have not found any help or know what to do to get back on track since Covid started With working from home, the added stress of an unsupportive co-parent for my special needs son, im spinning and I’m worried to put on the rest .... Sorry for the rant.. I’m scared and I’m so worried

    My 11month follow up last week....as much as it went well and was excited to have reached -100 1 month early... they bummed me out by telling me that this was it!!! If I want to loose more I would need bypass .... I’m not done yet .. I still have 70 lbs more to loose . What a day .. I left so bummed. (Was sleeves October 18,2017) Any thoughts anyone??

    40 something sleevers?

    Sleeved October 2017 and was on a waiting list since 2013 .., being 42 I do wish I would have been able to do it sooner ... I think if everything I missed out on .. but I can’t dwell on that now as the past is the past!! I am grateful that I got it now. With 96 down and 80 to go I’m at a plateau and hope I can get back on track .. honeymoon is over and all is back to what it was !!! The carb cravings are back , I can eat more then I should, drinking with meal doesn’t hurt barely anymore... I’m panicked a bit as I fear to gain back what I worked so hard to loose. I’m back here for accountability and support .

    I’m down 97 since surgery (oct 2017) still 80 to go ... I’ve hit a stall and am able to tolerate all and any foods .. honeymoon is over ... now the real hard work begins as all the carb cravings are back !! I am glad that since October 2017 I still was able to keep off pop , coffee, and cigarettes.... I can feel my stomach stretched back out as I noticed I can eat bigger portions and able to drink water with meal with minimal pain ( not good) .. I’m catching myself snacking and making excuses. So I’m back here after being away for 6 months looking for accountability and support.

    How long since your surgery? Did you gradually reach that amount , if so how long did it take?

    It’s your ability to drink to 80 oz I’m in awe with ... Im barely able to get 24 oz (. 6 weeks post-op) Congrats on your progress

    ALL 64 ounces?

    Did you have any medical issues because you weren’t able to do the 64 oz? Prior to surgery and my whole life I was lucky to get 24oz and now at 6 weeks post-op I’m just starting to get 24oz and can’t and can’t even imagine being able drinking more like 64 oz !!! And it has me worried. How did you build up to it?
