Hi I’m a Jersey girl newbie



Recommended Posts

Hi I'm in Bergen County. Just starting the process. Met with surgeon and have my 1st nutritionist appt on the 23rd. I go to the gym twice a week but need to go more and do machines. Since making this decision I feel so excited and impatient but I need to work on my eating habits. I hope to have surgery before years end. Everything hurts lol and i feel my energy level is non existent.

Hi Bergen County here as well! I know what you mean it took about 5 months from my 1st visit with the surgeon in August 2017 and I had the sleeve done January 2018. I did it for health reasons and now I go to the gym 4 times a week minimum. Which gym do you go to?

I go to a gym in Hackensack. My Dr is in Paramus and I will probably have the surgery at Pascack in Westwood

Hello NJ friends! I'm Jacqui and I had my sleeve surgery in March of last year. I'm from Pompton Lakes, but I actually grew up in the West Milford area.

Passaic Cty here, about 13 months post-op. Good luck to everyone. It's been one hell of a wild ride. Mostly good, some bad. If I had to do it over again, I would definitely go to a different surgeon.

      Feel like it's time for a status update, I haven't been on here regularly in a while and I need to keep my mindset focused on my goals.
      I haven't weighed myself in ~ 3 weeks.  I think I'm becoming the opposite of "obsessive" about tracking my progress and it could cause me some issues.  The good thing is that there have still been quite a number of NSV's happening that is telling me that I'm still progressing without knowing what the scale says.
      First one is that a belt I bought about 5 weeks ago because all my other belts were too big is also on the last hole so I'll have to buy yet another belt again.  second, I bought new jeans about a month ago and I have a lot more slack in the waist than I did when I purchased them.  I also boarded a plane and had about 8 inches of slack in the belt.  Finally, I hit my goal last week of being able to ride go-carts with my kids.  The last time I tried about 4 years ago, I had to leave because I couldn't fit in the harness.  This was sweet victory and I showed those two how it was done on the race course!!  😈

      I just looked through all my old pants after my pre-op pants started getting to big. Keep in mind that I wear men's pants (usually cargos) because I am so tall 5'10"/5'11" ish. I also find that men's baggies tend to fit me better.
      I started out at a 44 in waist pant and quickly found that I was back down to my 42's. So even when thise got to be too big, I had to start pulling old clothes out of storage. After finding my 38's, I thought that these would not yet fit, but when I tried them on, they fit perfectly. I also found some older pants that now fit better than I remembered. What a relief! It's not like I can pop down to the store like I could do in the US and the styles here in Sweden are all skinnt jeans which I cant stand. I also found some 36's, but I'm not mentally ready to try those on yet. The biggest challenge will be buying women's clothing again.

      slow and steady wins the race.  don't get discouraged and just keep at it. Let your sleeve do its job and try not to stress yourself out.
      hope you are all having a great summer and enjoying what your sleeve has given you.
      just got back from a wedding in OR. and man am i afraid to get on the scale

        Great reminder about how fast you can lose weight. The mind games we play with ourselves are the worst.
