Hi All, I'm not near you but Spokane isn't super duper duper far away. I've been known to drive there once or twice! :) I'm in Olympia, WA and I was sleeved on October 7, 2013. It was a lapband removal--revision to a sleeve. I'm feeling really great. So great that I don't even believe I got my sleeve! :P I wish, wish, wish there was a support group here for sleevsters because I just don't know what I'm doing with this thing. I'm still on liquids until November 20, 2013 so that part isn't so fun but I'm back at work and doing my workouts and the incisions are all but gone. I really do feel good.

I love NWWLS! Everyone is amazing there and they all just want the best for you and for you to succeed on your journey. Most of the staff has had weight loss surgery, so they know what you're going through.

      I just had a teaspoon of hummus with a teaspoon of avocado topped with a teaspoon of greek yogurt and it. was. GLORIOUS. I'm four days out and my surgeon gave me the greenlight to work in small amounts of pureed food.

      Kind of nervous, as expected. One month out from surgery!

      😫 Hi, I’m new to bariatricpal! I am 8 days post op VSG. I am struggling very badly. I’ve been so emotional because I feel like I’m doing wrong. I’m afraid I’ll eat or drink to fast or eat the wrong thing. I’ve been on Pinterest and YouTube constantly for help. I have followed all of my surgeons and dieticians instructions. I just don’t know if my body is getting enough. Today, I am weak, sore, and just exhausted.

        It passes!! Everyone goes though it! It is a short term emotion! I'm almost five years post op! You made the right decision! Don't focus on the change right now. Try to entertain your mind. What your feeling only last about a week. It's related to your body adjusting and you mind adjusting. You got this!!

        I agree with Tara it's hard right now but it gets better do t forget your hormones will be all over the place you may even feel depressed. Be kind to yourself reach out and talk to people how you are feeling .
