I had my sleeve done 6/5/18 and for the first time I cried cuz I could only eat a little of something.. last night I made the most delish chicken wings in my air fryer, I mean they were so crispy and juicy. And I could only eat 2. I was so upset and mad. I cried. It was more of a funny laughing at myself for being mad, type of cry tho. Because I am beyond glad I got the surgery, but it happened.. I really wanted to just eat like 40 of them things.. I mean I've lost over 70 lbs. I now can shop in the cute bras and underwear sections, so no more plain black, white and nudes.. no more boob buldges because I can't afford the specially made bras.. no more worrying about someone seeing a pair of my underoos laying somewhere and yelling "who lost their parachute" so yeah I am so excited I've had this surgery.. not excited about all my hair falling out either lol. If anyone can give a tip on how not to become bald by my 34th birthday (which is in December) but really I just wish I could have had a 3rd chicken wing. Or even one more bite.. but in the end I'll take giving up that last wing for a nice future summer bod (may be a few summers still tho) but I just needed to let y'all know about my chicken wing fiasco. And the horrible, terrible, not so good night I had without it.. 😀😭

It just takes a while for you to get used to having something in the stomach. I couldnt each much at all the first few months. Now, a year and a half later i can eat about 6 wings.

Cant say much about the hair since mine was gone long before surgery.

They were mad happy tears.. mad that the wings were so delish and happy that I could only eat 2 lol, but also mad because I could only eat 2 and they were so delish. It was a weird situation.. I made 4 for me to eat and made my mom 6 and she ended up eating mine and hers lol

I will be 36 next month and I had my surgery in April. Congrats on your weight loss. I've lost about 54 pounds. But, I've been there where I cried over food. My husband and kids will eat something I want just a little of and when he's told me no, I've gotten so mad at him and actually cried. I know I had a very unhealthy relationship with food. I just have to learn to love food for survival not love it as comfort.

I feel ya, girl! There are some days where I'm like "man, I want to eat more of that, cause it's so good" , but then I'm really thankful that I can't. I got to have a little of whatever it is, and that's enough!

I had that frustrated feeling on and off for the first year post op, it felt like I would never enjoy food again and I was mad. It passed and I was just saying to my husband the other day how amazing it feels to be satisfied and to learn to have enjoyment from just a bite or two. The head games for me took the longest to deal with. I promise it gets better, but man I feel you. Until it happens for you it sucks. Hang in there. Best wishes on your journey!

      New found appreciation for you all!
      So Im back in the US to take care of my aging father and it seems like more than ever that being bigger is the norm everywhere here. I cant say that Ive been the best, healthiest me at the moment, but I think you all Americans are doing GREAT to even be working towards the goal of getting healthier in face of all this temptation (even if you are a "slow loser"). So give all yourselves a pat on the back!

      I am now 10 days post op and I am down 16lbs. I had an allergic reaction to the glue my doctor used so I am still sore and trying to keep moving to not get stiff.

        Hello congratulations on your new journey I am 5 days post op and still trying to get the hang of things. I’m supposed to return back to work in a few days but still sore as well. Do you have any advice for me being 5 days post opt?

      Hello,  I am brand new on here. 
      The doctor qualified me yesterday for the surgery, so now I have to take 12 weeks of education classes and then he said they will schedule the surgery 4-6 weeks after I complete the classes. 
      I am excited to start this new journey.

      Am at the half-way mark of the six month pre-op program.  So excited!  Got clearance from psychologist this morning, so I scheduled my surgery consult for early March.  It is becoming more real now.  Have lost 18 pounds so far, since I began this journey on 12/18/19.
