    Long term patients

    I'm 4 years out. No regrets. I got to my goal weight. I had back surgery and regained some but am getting back on track.
  2. Loose pj pants and top. I wore that home and didn't have to change.
  3. I like the Pure Protein in vanilla cream also. I found several that I liked prior to surgery and then hated them after.

    Argh, my post disappeared! I am 4 years out and was very successful until I had back surgery and let myself slide. I will be happy to help you with any questions!

    I am 4 years out so I will be happy to help you out! I was successful with it until I had the back surgery and then I let myself slide. But no more!

    So sorry to hear about the erosion. I know that is seriously painful! I'm glad you are happy with your sleeve, I truly believe it is a wonderful tool. Even though I have experience regain, I do not see it as a failure. I made the bad choices, not my sleeve! Since I am no longer in CA and no longer with Kaiser, I feel a little lost as far as support goes. I found a group on Meetup, but they have cancelled the last two meetings. So, I am going to keep looking. It's crazy how quickly you get spoiled to the ease of use with Kaiser. It's truly a one stop shop!

    It's definitely not a miracle cure. But I don't regret it in the least. I would be even bigger had I not gotten it when I did. My problem is when I am bored or upset, I eat. My head figured out that I can eat a LOT of little stuff. With meals, I still have restriction. I just need to stop with the smaller things that chew down to nothing. I am recommitting to eating better and am optimistic that I can stick with it. I really struggle with depression anyway, and this has made it worse. I am also working on figuring out the whys of my eating habits. I think that is going to be a very important step.

    I am the same way. I had the sleeve and actually hit my goal, but had to have spinal surgery and it slowly started to creep back up. We moved from CA to NC and it has just continued. I am having a hard time remotivating and staying with it.

    65-70 lbs to lose

    I had my surgery on 11/29/10 and have lost 60 lbs so far. I am thinking about readjusting my goal to about 25 more. Now that I am here, I feel like a "normal" bmi is attainable.
