Guess what I went shopping for a pair of jeans and im a 44 waist down from a 50 waist Nov 11. Im so happy. I have like 3 pairs of sweat pants and 1 pair of jeans now. I figure I should own at least one pair of jeans just in case. Well this means that soon I will have to sell all my shirts they are 4x and 3x button short sleeve collar shirts all different patterns for men even got Hawaiian floral shirts short sleeve of course a lot of summer shirts.

Awesome! I'm with you, all my pants fit like MC Hammer pants. And my belts on the last hole before I have to start cutting new ones.

It's a good problem to have!

Yep that is a good problem to have! I have gone from a size 56 when I was at my biggest years ago to a 36. I was in a 48 at the time of my surgery. I mean that is just crazy so I know how you feel! Congrats to you..

Congrats to you all! It means so much to us pre-sleeves who need to stay focused on the results. I just finished reading how hard the preop diet is. It can trick my mind into thinking I can't do this. But so many of you have been so successful. I just hope I can do it too!

How many people attend Overeaters Anonymous. Im thinking of attending the meetings. Can i get some feedback or suggestions

I used to go to Overeaters Anonymous and found it very helpful. I haven't been to a meeting in years and certainly not since my sleeve surgery, but it has been on my mind lately. Let me know if you find a group that you like.

Jayson, I recently started going to OA. I'm not religious, so that worried me, but I am finding it extremely helpful. I'd recommend checking it out. If it isn't for you you've only lost an hour of time.

Now that I increased my food amount to 4 ounces up from 2 ounces per the nutritionist. So I guess my weight loss will be slower now. I have to exercise more now.

Wow! That's awesome! I had the lapband and it slipped up my esophagus, last month. They've removed all the liquid and I'm now waiting approval to have it removed and to get the sleeve. I hope I get it soon. I'm gaining wait already, I think the sleeve will be a better choice. I had lost well with the band... But the slippage was scary! :(

      Going in on Tuesday. Things are arranged (need to order a cab to the station because it's too early for a bus going there) and I'm getting more nervous by the hour.

      I feel like I've finally gotten past the biggest hurdle. Surgery date is September 6th, the day after Labor Day, and yesterday I got my insurance approval letter. I've followed everything they've told me to do, and I've even lost 30 lbs on my own since hubby had to change his diet for diabetes. No worries now about having to do 4 weeks of the liver shrinking diet instead of 2. On my initial visit, if I had gained just 5lbs I would have had to do 4 weeks. It's getting closer. Just 2 more months to wait.

        Although the prep work took energy, I found the biggest hurdle was post-operative. The first 48 hrs were extremely uncomfortable. I did an overnight and trying to down the liquids, Tylenol, and especially the barium was rough. Thankfully though, I got away with only having to have 1 belly injection after surgery. Needless are not my thing.
