Don't worry so much, it's amazing how the sleeve works, you will lose, I promise. All you have to do is follow everything the Dr says, only eat what he says to eat and exercise all you can and the weight will start falling off! I started on June 18 at 334 lbs when I had my sleeve done, and today I'm at 259 lbs, that's 75 lbs! I go to the gym 5 or 6 days a week, I do 30 to 45 min of cardio, weights for my arms and legs and I swim laps every other day. So you can breath easy knowing if you do your part the sleeve will do its part.

Oh I forgot I have a question...I eat 2ozs about 3 times a day and maybe some cottage cheese but when I eat cottage cheese I can eat 3oz somtimes 3.5, that's only with cottage cheese though is that ok? Or should I keep at 2 oz even though it don't fill me?

Well I'm. 8 weeks out now and I weigh 200lbs with a loss of 31 lbs.. this week I did not loose any weight so I'm a little nervous. I'm very happy about my loss so far and hope I have a loss next week. I am still eating around 3oz a meal sometimes I'm hungry . I still don't drink enough and have to remember my Vitamins. Anyone else have a stall in weight loss??

      It's Saturday!!! My fiance and I are out doing yard work and I made the mistake of not staying hydrated before going out so now my body is shaking and weak. I have my pre-op appointment Tuesday, the 2nd and I am trying my hardest to lose another 2 lbs by then.

        You got this!! When I had the sleeve I cried every day during the liquid phase, It was during the super-bowl! I was sooo hungry I sucked on a piece of pork rind. LOL
