I was told not to drink for the first 6 months. Husband and I are going on a cruise next month so I will probally have a drink on my vacation.

Yes, alcohol is processed quicker so we're a whole big group of cheap dates now. I have read studies that alcohol addiction is a big risk for post-op wls patients. I have tried a little bit and it gets my tipsy really fast, but only lasts a short time, and makes me feel sick/dehydrated after. I really don't enjoy it at all anymore, and I used to drink a glass of wine or two a night. I'm actually glad for the change =p

When I drank alcohol for the first time, drinking some yummy Hurricanes, I cycled in and out of feeling tipsy and feeling sober. Real quick, it was odd

Yes, I had the same reaction as Wolfgirl. I went to my pre-op favorite spot Chilis and had maybe 2-3 oz of a margarita. I got tipsy really fast, then sobered up after a while. After that it felt like I never had anything to drink at all.

Im 11 months out. Alcohol hits me a lot quicker so i tend to have to take it slow. and yes we are all cheap dates after having the sleeve.

Same as wolf girl here. I enjoy an occasional wine but make sure I increase my Water intake to compensate. I do not believe I could drive after one. It does hit pretty fast.

I've been on a few dates since getting sleeved. Ive noticed that my confidence has gone up drastically. Im a super cheap date as well - thankfully my dates understood. Im pretty open with the surgery and told them and they had no issues, just interested in the experience. My most recent date and I are going out again shortly.

As far as alcohol goes, Im only 3 months out, but I will admit that I have had a few. I honestly dont feel a difference. I was able to drink 2 Jack and Cokes (asked the bartender to flat the soda for me) and did not get super drunk or tipsy at all - just a nice mellow buzz. I will probably wait until after 6 months to test the waters further with alcohol.

So far, so good?

      So my surgery anniversary date is on the 24th of this month, but I had my 1-year follow up early with my surgeon this morning (I have another 1-year followup at the hospital on Monday to get my bloodwork and labs done).
      Anyhoo...my surgeon was very pleased with my results (and so where the office staff apparently, because 3 of the front desk ladies came by my exam room to give me props/high fives/generally gawk at me).
      But get this: he asked if I would be willing to come in for a future photoshoot so that I could be on a poster! And I was all, ummmm....no thanks, LOL.

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".
