    Is anyone else as disappointed...

    Well I struggled to lose weight for years until I had RNY bypass and now my whole metabolism has changed.. I no longer put on weight and I lost weight really well so I'd look into the bypass as it changes more than the sleeve?

    You really need to log all your food and drink work out what you're eating.. Is it too much sugar or carbs or is it too much sodium? Are you drinking enough water? Are you sleeping properly? Or is your genes holding you back? Something is not right... I had bypass so that helped me I lost all 150+lbs and in maintenance now 9 months post op....

    How did you pick your doctor?

    Research and talking to the surgeon; and the fact he teaches other surgeons all over the world..

    Weight loss after surgery

    I lost 100% as well I was lucky I don't have a big regime just ate very strictly
  6. Well I've not had band but I did have RNY bypass and all my blood work have been fine. My hair issue wasn't loss of hair just that it grows slower. Dumping only happens if you eat like junk food which we shouldn't anyways.. My weight loss has been amazing and even surprised myself... No complications here but I am only 9.5 months post OP. Maintaining well

    What is the best feedback your therapist ever gave you?

    If you want to change something do it nobody else can do it for you. Take responsibility for yourself and your choices. You can do it if you put your mind to it. Weight loss is 90% mental

    Worried about never reaching goal.

    Well I'm a man and much taller but I still made my goal and even went below my goal within the first year... But I had RNY bypass.... It is possible you just have to be vigilant...
