I'm actually already healed up, I was doing super about 6 weeks out. I had mine done on 5/28/14 so I'm 10 weeks out and so far I've lost 51 lbs since the day of surgery. I feel much better! I didn't think it was going to happen this fast, but no complaints ;)

How are you doing so far? Also I had my surgery done at park plaza, and I loved it there. Everyone was do nice

Hi Krystal,It's so exciting to hear about your amazing results! My surgery is scheduled for December in Tijuana with Dr. Lopez, who also does the single incision technique. I am waiting until December, as it's a better time for my business. I'm a self pay because my BMI is only 30, but I have struggled for years with an eating disorder. I'm hoping that after this procedure, I can finally have a healthy relationship with food. Have you experienced a normalizing of hunger and cravings with this procedure? I am looking forward to that, as much as the weight loss. I'm looking forward to being at one clothing size and staying there instead of being on this wild trajectory up and down that has gone on for years. Anything you can share in that regard would be so appreciated!

Hi glad to hear your surgery went well!!!

I'm actually still here. I had to stay in town for at least the post surgery visit. I'm actually from MI but wanted to go to someone who does Single incision since it's more complicated for docs to perform.

I'm staying by the Galleria at Hotel Derek

      Looks like I need people around to complete a 10K.  I tried to do one by myself this afternoon and I gave up at around the 7km mark.  Gonna try again on Friday, but I may have to look into joining a running club...

      My Surgeon asked me a question the other day and i didn't give it a lot of thought at the time.
      He asked "do you tell"
      we were talking about peoples reaction to seeing me since i lost such a large amount of me.
      I answered that i do tell if they ask but that it seems most everyone is afraid to mention it if they haven't seen me in a while or they decided they already know the answer so they don't need the truth from me (we all know those types)
      I have had exactly one family friend come right out and ask me how i lost so much weight this year and i told her i had Gastric Sleeve.
      I am sure family has passed it around to other family (you have that type family don't you? or is it just me)  
      So that left me wondering "do you tell" and i dont mean right at surgery time. more like a year or so down the road do you say how or do you just say cut out the sugar and carbs and WAALAA
      Its a real personal choice to open yourself up to that kind of criticism and we know all about how we took the "Easy" way and yada yada yada.
      hope everyone is having a great week

        I'm about 10 months post op, and my standard answer is I eat way less and exercise way more (oh, and I cut the carbs by a lot). The only people I told were Mr., the Kid, BFF and my Mom.
