    No question is dumb. The restriction we feel with the sleeve is at the gate of the ending of our stomachs into our intestines. There’s a natural tightness there that allows for food to empty slowly. With the bypass it literally bypass all of that and empty into the intestines. The little gate or tightness is bypassed

    Nothing is a fact in weight loss surgery because there are too many variables. Literally everything down to genetics changes the outcome. But the sleeve is the most restrictive ( if don’t properly without complications) and safer surgery. The only thing is , is the stomach no matter how small can and will always stretch.

    It was awful because I kept pushing my boundaries. In the beginning it hurt to simply swallow water quickly. I was used to that full feeling satisfaction so I pushed and pushed until I understood that we should live to eat but eat to live! I made sure my 2-3 bites were protein and I did amazing.

    Yes I’m down 80 pounds since March. It’s just harder because the sleeve lets you know almost immediately that you’ve had enough or too much. The bypass doesn’t. Each individual is different. If I stayed on course I would’ve lost more but I’m trying my best and that’s all you can do

    Hi, with the sleeve before my 3 pregnancies I could only take 3-4 bites of food before feeling incredibly full even leading to vomiting. Within a year I had lost 150 pounds with the bypass it’s no longer a pouch fullness but an uncomfortable nausea feeling. I have an iron stomach so I’ve only had dumping once but I stick to what I know to be safe. Everyone is different. To me the sleeve was much bettter because I’m a good addict

    I had my revision in March and lost 40 pounds. I had my sleeve in March ( 5 years ago ) and on this date lost 55 pounds so it’s definitely slower and I’m actually exercising and counting calories etc this time around. I’m trying to restrict myself just like the sleeve so I’m only eating protein and a very small amount at each sitting and drinking a lot a lot of water. It’s hard because that never full feeling is depressing. It makes food and eating ALL I can think about. I’m trying to occupy my time with other things also

    When was your surgery date? I’m down from 300 to 261 and my surgery date was March 9. You’re right it’s been slower than the sleeve for sure.

    I think the bigger we are prior to surgery, the more we lost after. And I’m restricting myself as if I had the sleeve lol.

    Honestly it’s not about the actual number I’m just afraid to stop losing since it’s a slower process and I’m the one stopping myself after 2-3 bites. And I wish I could tell my family to leave me the hell alone but how can I when they are right? I did fail😔 I have 2 beautiful children from it but to ballon back after I’ve tasted the glory is so depressing.

    Yes I do. When I lost the weight the first time a lot of negative ppl in my life said I would fail and gain it all back which I did!😢😢😔😔😔 and evening though I cut most ppl out of my life the main ones are my family. I’ve literally been in hiding. I can’t believe they were right.
