I've been gaining and loosing the same 5 lbs for 3 months. Was at the Dr last week, both agreed I was in the Green Zone and did not need a fill. But just to see what happens he gave me 1/2cc.

I've \been dropping weight like crazy, should be at my goal very, very soon.

I'm a little over 12 months banded.

I'm at goal after 10 months. Loosing weight can be addictive, though. I am disappointed when I get on the scale now and don't see a loss!

I am at goal, and in maintenance. I, also, visited my surgeon this week, I had gained a lb. he did not give me a fill, as I know what I need to do. Snacks have been my nemisis, again. I was banded on Oct. 30, 2009. I met goal around a year later, can't remember when! Karen

I achieved goal some time in the last three weeks (been on vacation with no scale). I've been waiting to visit this section until I reached goal.

Weight loss can become addictive, can't it, Sandra? Every time I've reached a goal, I've thought "Just five or ten pounds more and then I'll stop." I made higher goals originally because I knew statistically folks lose about half the weight they need to lose and I didn't want to be overly optomistic. Now I am only 3 pounds from my weight in college and 6 pounds from losing an even hundred pounds, so I think, "Why the heck not?" My husband is on my case about being hung up about numbers and losing too much weight, but... it is only 6 more pounds, hmm?

Well, I have 1.5 pounds to go and I've made the 100 pounds lost so far.. I have 15.5 to go to meet the wt the dr. set for me, but 25.5 to go for the wt I set for myself..

Not quite there, but almost.. Headed on vacation tomorrow for 3 weeks, scared to death I will not lose, but gain, but I will do everything in my power to stay on track. I haven't gone off track yet, just worried about excercise because we are doing a road trip across the states so will be in the car most of the time..

wish me luck!!

      I had gastric sleeve surgery 5 years ago. My gastric reflux has recently got so bad that's the acid burns into my ears. I was given a lidocaine solution that would help with the burning pain in my throat. I spoke to my gastroenterologist about a procedure I saw online for the reflux.  She said I didn't qualify so I went to see the doctor that did this procedure who happens to be a bariatric doctor. He explained why I was not good for the procedure because I had a stricture in the esophagus a hiatal hernia. Due to the gastric sleeve the acid is being forced up into my throat. The doctor wants to do a bypass which should relieve that pressure. I am going for an upper GI tomorrow.  I was wondering if anyone else as experienced this. I am new here I do not go on social media so I don't know my way around I will try to find my way back here.

        I was revised from a sleeve to a bypass 10 months out from my sleeve. I was waking up with acid in my mouth and burning the back of my nose. The bypass worked beautifully in eliminating the reflux. Oh, and to get back here, just google bariatricpal forums!

      Hide and Seek? No....   If you have noticed, it’s been a little bit of stretch between posts. It’s not because I am not interested in blogging. I absolutely love sharing my journey with you.   You see, my world has changed! I now exercise every single morning with a 3 to 4-mile walk. I also now meal prep so I don’t fall into old habits.   I am also a bit hooked on closing my Apple Watch Fitness Rings! In fact, I am obsessed with doubling and tripling most of them.   So this does take up a lot of time and by the time you add work into the mix and family time, it becomes a shorter day.   Priorities are in order for me and I could not be happier.   So in the last week, I’ve been hitting goals that I never thought I would be able to hit again. I weigh myself on Sunday’s now. It’s just easier to do before I get dressed for church. It just feels good. I refuse to constantly get on the scale when I see everyday victories. Like getting back into clothes I never thought I could, or taking the time to just breathe and be grateful for the blessings I have in my life right now.   Continued on www.SabrinaGoddess.com

      6 Weeks Post Op!

      My world is drastically different! I now walk 3 to 4 miles a day and I’m constantly getting up to move my body! .

      I close my Apple Watch rings daily and about 4 to 6 days a week I double or triple them!

      I have been released to have all foods. When I reintroduce some I need to start at 1 ounce to see how “Tiny Tummy” likes it!

      I am not reintroducing sugars, coffee or junk! I did not pay close to $13,000 to fail! .

      I went to get follow up bloodwork done this week and my numbers are all in the perfect range! .

      This is my new world and I am happy it!
