I'm just depressed and pissed after my husband guilt talked me out of it!! I should have flown out today ????

I promised him I would try truly dieting and exercising for real ONE TIME (I have never done it in a healthy way)... Haven't lost a single pound even though I've been doing Zumba, elliptical, swimming etc. I am so discouraged. But so excited for all of you!!!

I started weight watchers today. I hate weight watchers but my scale hasn't moved with low carb. I don't think my body can handle that many cals

26 days out, feeling great. SW 200 CW 182. No problems at all other than needing to be more creative with mushy foods. Can't eat much and averaging 600 calories per day, but no vomiting, slimes or pain!

So great to hear about other low BMI people who have had the sleeve. I'm just a little worried I am 5 weeks post op and I have only lost 11 pounds. I have heard it can be slow for people going from a band to a sleeve and being a low Bmi. I had the Lap band for 3 years and lost 40 pounds and in March I had to have Emerency removal surgery. I gained 40 pounds back in 2 months (it was terrible). I had the sleeve done (BMI 31) 6/16/15 any thoughts or suggestions? Thanks!

I had my surgery in the 8th September last year. My BMI was 32 on the day of surgery. To date I have lost 44 pounds and feel great. There have been some stalls but i feel so much healthier now. I make good food choices most of the time but still enjoy my food ( just not as much of it) .

Yes, I had a BMI of 32 and got it done. I haven't lost it as fast as others because of other health issues as well (diabetic, PCOS) but cut my insulin in half which I think has helped lose the weight. It's taking me a lot longer but I guess it's okay as long as I'm losing and skin is fine as well. I was self pay as well and went to TJ for it. Any questions, feel free to ask :)

I'm considering going to TJ. Which doctor did you use and how was your experience? Also how has the surgery/weight loss affect your PCOS symptoms?

Hello all,

Since my last post....little has changed. I still go up and down a couple pounds every now and then. Today I was 126#. The only significant change...due to weight loss...is I had a breast lift with a small implant...360cc. I thought...and my plastic surgeon...told me I'd gain a few pounds...but I didn't. Yay! Because I feel like I have 2 bowling balls on my chest! My boobs haven't looked this good...since I was 19yo. I am well into my 50's now....and feel fantastic!

I hope all is well with each and everyone of you.

Take care.

Thank you everyone for the insight into your weigh loss journey with the sleeve. I'm a low BMIer 28.5 getting a revision from band to sleeve on Oct 16 - so ready to stop dealing with a temperamental band and give myself a chance to finally hit goal with the sleeve ????

I think telling people in kinda important. Just saying. Luckily everyone I've told is so supportive. They want me to be happy. Anyone who wants you to be happy will be supportive. Own it.

      How can a bowel movement make me lose almost 4 pounds? How much poo am I full of?

        I haven't pooped in a weed and I'd love a 4 pound poo right now lol

      2. ms.sss

        Lol, yeah, I've been known to drop 3-ish lbs after a good (and long awaited) poop.

        .....or even after a moderate to severe dumping episode. yikes.

        Those are championship cups for both you guys! :) I personally came up a 1.4lb winner this morning. ;) hehehehe.

      I met with my surgeon on Friday.. I've completed all my tests and all my nutrition meetings as well as meeting the weight loss requirements for my insurance. We are officially submitting to insurance for approval and I was given a surgery date of January 16th 2020 (13 days before my birthday!) Fingers crossed all goes through

      Ok, now im getting old...my body gets me up at my normal 5am dog walk even when it's the weekend, vacation, and most importantly when I'm sick. So now that I have more energy, my body wants to make sure I suffer even longer during the day when I have a cold! Damn being healthy again! (:D)

      At my Primary Physician appt, the Doc said you know you lost a whole person. When you started seeing me you were 265lbs now you're 148lbs.
      She's right... I lost the fun me 😂 Joking Joking Joking. It's amazing who keeps track when you don't like insurance and browsers feeds
