    @dsdesigna Thanks. That's good advice. Anorexia never entered my mind as a condition that I'd ever have to worry about, but I'd rather be safe than sorry. I am overdue to have my blood work done, so I'll make sure to get right on it. I do have to be more faithful about the Vitamins. I am very inconsistent with taking them, so my blood work will probably be a disaster.
    Appreciate your feedback!

    I’ve lost over 130lbs, 14 months out from surgery and 15 months out from initial consult. I weigh less than I did when I was in high school. :-)

    Hi,
    I had a revision from the lap-band to SIPS on 2/14/18. While I eat better by cooking more and making better choices, I'm by far not a perfect eater. I don't count carbs, fat grams, calories, or anything. I just have my meals and try as best I can to eat a "reasonable" amount. I am big on exercise, and I do that for 4-5 days a week for at least an hour to two hours. I have lost weight every single month since the surgery, from as high as 21lbs one month to .2 another month, but again, every month has been a losing month. I'm down from 296.7 to 160.8 as of today which is a little over 14 months out. BMI charts say for my height, I should be around 155lbs.
    I'm thinking that this is just too good to be true. When is it all going to start caving in or catching up with me? Will I really have to diet or count calories at some point to maintain or is this really my new life. Because if it is, I can really live with this.
    Anyone else not really dieting, but still losing?

    Great idea!
    I'm just so full as I write this because over the last 10 months, I'm down 108.7 lbs. I had a revision from the lap-band to SIPS and I couldn't be more happy. I did have some complications in the beginning which required a month long stay in the hospital, but even with that, I don't have any regrets! My life is on TEN!!!
    Even though I have not shared publicly my WLS experience with friends, people seem to be genuinely happy for the new me. I've always socialized, but I'm even more eager to hang out with my friends, go on couples dates, business social settings, etc. because I can easily find something to wear and feel even more confident in myself.
    I'm feeling great physically. No more back and knee pain. Off of all meds (blood pressure, cholesterol, symbicort breathing treatment) and off of CPAP machine for sleep apnea. Also, since having the lap-band removed as part of the revision, I no longer have acid reflux. While the vanity is great, the health benefits have me over the moon ecstatic! I'm sooooooooooo happy!

    deltagirl93 got a reaction from WeGettingThere in How long did it take you to get your surgeries?   
    I was self-pay, so three weeks. I have insurance, but it was going to be a minimum of six months and I knew in advance that I’d probably fail on the weight loss requirements for each month. So I sacrificed and dug deep for $17000. I’d do it all over again. I’ve lost over 120lbs since having surgery on 02/14/2018.

    Recently took a flight that had to be rebooked due to weather conditions in the northeast. The only available seats were middle seats. I was completely freaking out and just knew that I was going to be miserable the entire flight.

    To my surprise, I was completely comfortable and did not encroach on anyone’s space. Even though I’ve lost over 100lbs and down to 188, I’m still “big” in my head until proven otherwise. 🤪

    Like some of the others have mentioned, I take it how it comes to me. I did have a rough start and ended up hospitalized for a month, but I’ve been doing well every since. I’ve lost 116 lbs in nine months. I exercise 4-5 days a week and don’t overly focus on food other than to eat in moderation. I haven’t gone nuts on drastically reducing or cutting out any food groups. It’s great losing weight without the administrative overhead counting calories or mentally going through a “do/do not eat” checklist. 😊

    Hey there. Don't be discouraged, as our bodies make adjustments, some weeks go swimmingly and others not so much. I'm 10 months out and even though I weigh weekly, I focus on monthly outcomes as weekly focus can cause way to much freak out and anxiety. It will come off. Hang in there.

    Thanks for sharing your numbers, deltagirl - you are doing great!! It’s good to see how other revisions to SIPS are doing. I’m now 3 weeks out from a sleeve to sips revision and about 9 or 10 lbs down. I’m very happy with this start, although I’m sure it will slow down. I need to add exercise - as you have wisely incorporated ... I’ve just been to lazy. ;)

    @Philip E. Thanks so much! I'm still in disbelief that I've lost over 100 lbs. I thought it would take well over a year, but I did it in about nine months. Anyway, it sure has made flying easier, and I know that you will definitely be good to fly yourself whenever you are ready! Congratulations on your progress thus far as well!!!
