    Well dont' stay a stranger. At least post now and then so we can see how you are doing. Curves should be great. I hope you do ok. I started working out as well and I'm definitely feeling it.

    Just been sleeved

    I'm 6 weeks out and have tried chicken salad a few times. I can only eat about 1 oz and then it just feels awful so I just quit eating it all together. I did put light mayo in it also, but very little and it still didn't sit well. Maybe in later months we can try it again.

    So Discouraged....

    Loser, this doesn't sound good at all. Have you called your surgeon to see what he thinks? Hope you get past this soon.

    From Band to Gastric Imbrecation need help

    Welcome to the Forum. You are more than welcome here. You will find some of the nicest and most informed people around. Best wishes to you. Oh and on the "eating enough part", I still really can't tell when I'm full most of the time. I've had to strickly rely on measuring my food and stopping after that is consumed. Or eyeballing it to previous measurements and then stopping.

    dybarra, I too have a hard time judging fullness, so I stuck to eating no more than 2 ozs per meal. Perhaps start measuring your food each meal and stop at 2 ozs. It takes a while for fullness to register so maybe you are eating past your fullness point. Good Luck.

    Sleeve Tomorrow

    Hugabug, congrats on your surgery today. Best wishes for a smooth and uneventful surgery. Looking forward to hearing how it went.
  8. Great news on your surgery date. I can totally relate to joint pain. One of the main reasons I had this surgery was that the weight was causing so much pain on my joints, especially my hips. I would have pain constantly. I would wake up at night just from the pressure of sleeping on my sides which would cause severe pain in my hips. I have lost 31.5 pounds (6 weeks out) and the pain in my hips is nearly gone. I still have it some, but it gets better and better as the pounds drop off. I just started exercising recently where before surgery I couldn't walk a block without being in terrible pain. I think it will help your joints tremendously. Best wishes to you.

    Need opinions Please

    Thanks for your responses everyone! Guess I need to whine more often. Yesterday morning I weighed and lost the typical 1/2lb after 2 days, this morning I weighed and lost a pound. Tiff...I have been doing fairly good on my Water, but I defintely have missed a few days of getting it all in. I'm gonna work on that. Thanks

    Hey...another newbie here!

    Jeff, I was wondering how you are doing. Hopefully you are doing great!

    Down some pounds

    That's fantastic. By the time you have surgery, you will just ease into it with no problem. Good to hear you are doing ok.

    magic bullet VS ninja????????

    I just bought the Bullet about a month ago. I love it!! It does everything I need it to do. I do like the little containers with lids, as most of the time I can barely eat half of what I make. I just put the lid on it in the same container that I used to blend it and then use it later.

    Congratulations! That's one of my goals, is to be off the BP meds.

    One week out

    katldy, you'll be just fine and of course all the emotions and non sleep are pretty typical for most heading to surgery. It's ok to feel those things. As far as sleep goes, I used an over the counter Melatonin. I bought mine at WalMart. It seemed to work really well for me. In the past I have used Tylenol PM because I've always had problems sleeping, but the Melatonin has worked also. Best wishes to you on your journey,
