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!

      2019 - A New Year and a New Start on life!!!!
      On 3/14 - I went into the Hospital at 6am to have my surgery <the sleeve>.   My weigh at that time was 278 pounds.   On this day I was in and out of it I don't remember a whole lot I just remember being in a lot of pain.
      On 3/15 - They made me get up and walk a few times in the middle of the night and walk doctor came in and I was able to be discharged if I was eating and doing everything on his little checklist.   I went home at 6pm.  All I remember was going home crawling into bed and taking more pain medicine it felt like I got hit in the stomach about 50 times.
      On 3/16 - I know they say that walking is the best thing you can do after having surgeries but I was not feeling it at all every time I sat up, I got dizzy needless to say this day I didn't get much walking in and the smell of food just made me gag.  I couldn't even take the pain medicine that was in liquid form.  I stayed in bed for most of the day.
      On 3/17 - I did a lot better on this day I was actually able to eat a little bit of Jell-O and drink a little bit of broth.    Still can't seem to take that pain medicine without wanting to gag.   I definitely have been able to keep down water and even had my nephew take a little bit of Crystal Light and some ice chips and mix it in a bullet to make like a slushie.  That was yummy!
      This brings me to today 3/18 - I have been trying to drink protein water to get protein in my body. I was able to eat some Jell-O today and keep it down. I also was able to sit up for 5 hours and was able to be sociable again.  I was also finally able to take some pain medicine again without gagging <Thank God>.     Pain is slowly going away.   I have my first one week doctor visit on 3/20 so we will see how that goes

      I'm a finisher of a half marathon! Completed yesterday on a beautiful day to run. My hips and Knee are pretty angry with me today, but we finished at 2:19. Not bad for my first half. I was able to run with my wife, so that made it much nicer and easier to get through

      Tonight, I swallowed my semi-horse-pill-sized multi-vitamin without wanting to hurl!
      So long, expensive chewable multi-vitamin, from now I can buy the cheaper, tablet vites at Costco.
      Next: try to swallow the actual horse-pill-sized calcium pills without wanting to hurl....
