Hi all

Had my sleeve on 19th, all good so far, BUT, has anyone else noticed they have really gone off things ?

I now can’t stand taste of vanilla, and can’t stand the smell of my favourite perfume and I was a Diet Coke addict and have not even wanted one, not a bad thing I know, but odd, especially the smell

Yes, those things happen but will get better with time. I was a Coke Zero addict but do not miss it. I also am a coffee addict. My program allows up to 2 cups of coffee per day right after surgery but I didn't want it for at least a month. After that month of no coffee I am back to my coffee but limit myself to 2 or 3 cups per day.

yes. My taste for most of them eventually came back, though. Although not for bananas. At six years out, I still don't like them - too cloying. I loved them before surgery.

Hi! I think a lot of people start to feel a little down after surgery not only because it's stressful on the body, but also it's when the reality of losing one of our most comfortable coping mechanisms becomes evident. The next few months will be a time when you'll think a lot about what triggers you to eat and how to come up with alternative feel-good tactics. I had the band before and with the band and now the sleeve, there is this mental recovery period. But soon you will start figuring out new ways to deal with those negative triggers like stress or sadness, And then you will find yourself happier than you've ever been before!

      WOW by the Grace of God 17 years ago I went to Mexico and had a lap band put on for weight loss and my waist was 64 inches and That’s more than 5 foot around and 18 stone  my weight was 375 pounds. Today I went shopping for not sweats and I succeeded. I found pants and a shirt at an awesome price at Burlington by the way. But the real story here is, today. My waist is 45 inches and my weight is 260. Both incredible numbers but think about this. My waist is almost 20 inches smaller around Wow that’s a brain wrecker.  Still, I love my band  I even celebrate it’s birthday 10-26-06 FYI-it’s kind of like choking yourself, and never letting go. And trying to eat. lol Life is good

      Hi all! I’m Heidi, a Canadian ex-Pat living in Sydney, Australia. I’m doing this surgery because my mom died 10 years ago from obesity, she lived her own 600lbs life.  So at 116kg, it’s time to make sure my daughters don’t lose their mom to obesity.

      Drinking my favorite Premier Protein Shake for breakfast, and planned a nice healthy lunch today. Protein first, Veg second, then fruit, and carbs last.  💪
