Hang in there. It's not uncommon to have a little bout of depression around this stage from what I've seen. It can be in part because as the fat starts to drop, it releases the hormones that have been stored in it - think of PMS but with less control :). Also, you've had to deal with the stress of the surgery, changing your diet, lots of craziness going on... it's really no wonder if you find yourself in a mood swing or two!

Good luck, and do keep coming back if you need to vent or just want some support. I'm hoping that others will do the same for me when it's my turn!

Normal! I remember feeling the same way. We are grieving. The loss of food and a lifestyle it's enough to make anyone depressed. I can promise you that each day gets easier-it did for me. One caveat, of course, if the depression gets serious or if you feel suicidal get help immediately. Hang tough!!

Hang in there!! Its normal as others already posted. I am four months out and I am so happy. In the beginning I was sad because I was like, now what am I suppose to do for fun now. Going out to eat with friends and buffet with family, is no fun for me. However, I avoid buffet now its a waste of my hard earned money because I can only eat a little now. Once your pounds start or inches come off and you get near your goal you will cheer up. In the beginning I had problems with swallowing and keeping my food down. they did another ERD by inserting the light down my throat and stretching my sleeve a little. I weighted 226 now I am 169!!! Continue to follow your dr's advice and you will be fine. If you continue to feel down call your therapist that you saw before surgery. I have found this forum and talking to others that have went through this surgery a great help. Also the positive comments about my weight loss is encouraging too. :rolleyes: Life gets better, you just wait and see!!!

      How's everyone doing? I'm still fighting insurance company over plastics.
      Many changes at work are coming up. It's very stressful but there are also some opportunities involved, both in regards to personal development and promotion.

        I didn't think insurance was even possible for plastics? I figured it would all be out of pocket?
