Not a revision - did the loop DS + sleeve with Dr. Roslin at Lenox Hill - it's a smaller sleeve than you would get without the DS

Sorry, that was unclear. I mean the sleeve is not as narrow as it would be if you just did a sleeve. So my stomach is sleeved, but bigger than your average sleeved stomach who doesn't also do the DS

Thank you. I don’t feel bloated or Water weight. I just feel like I never had surgery. I guess I would probably feel that way since my stomach was cut years ago. I just feel like I did preop. Nothing feels different except the way I got the bathroom LOL I was just getting concerned and thought what if I did the surgery and didn’t lose any weight?

Have you ever lost 31 lbs. in 6 weeks? That's quite a lot. Plus, remember it's a revision and revisions don't typically lose as fast as virgin DSers.

Now a stat to make you happy, I lost 19 lbs. my first month with a virgin DS in 2005. I was thrilled as I'd never lost that much before in so short a time. :)

      So my surgery anniversary date is on the 24th of this month, but I had my 1-year follow up early with my surgeon this morning (I have another 1-year followup at the hospital on Monday to get my bloodwork and labs done).
      Anyhoo...my surgeon was very pleased with my results (and so where the office staff apparently, because 3 of the front desk ladies came by my exam room to give me props/high fives/generally gawk at me).
      But get this: he asked if I would be willing to come in for a future photoshoot so that I could be on a poster! And I was all, ummmm....no thanks, LOL.

        I guess I could, but the idea of being out there for all to see just skeeves me out! Nope, not for me ;)

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".
