Hi,

Had my surgery on 5/18/2020. I've been able to maintain between 188-191. However, I started adding the THRIVE packet to my my Protein Shake in the morning. And have lost 6 pounds this week. My question is, is this program ok for us 2 years post op? The monthly consists of a patch, a pill for energy and the Vitamin packets. I am 5'3 my starting weight was 310 my current weight is 184. Thanks

Never heard of it, but this sounds like a question for your doctor?

Is that the MLM Le-Vel? I think they are the ones that have Thrive. I would say ask your doctor, but personally I wouldn't support anything from an MLM.

Just looked. Yep, it's Thrive by Le-Vel: https://le-vel.com/

Thanks for your response, but it doesn't matter to me if it's MLM or from the moon at this point. If, it works and helps me to stay on track without health risk, then I'm for it. Being over 2 years out maintenance and weight management is a constant for me. I have not been able to get below 188 since January. I'm at 184 today, Whew.. They weren't kidding when they said its mental as much as it is physical. The mirror is my biggest enemy still sometimes. Thanks again and I wish you well on your journey..Take lots of pictures..😍

I mentioned it's an MLM because they have a terrible business model, they have had several lawsuits, and they drastically overprice their products. You can get the same kind of products for a lot less from reputable companies. That's all I meant by it. I hate to see people get sucked into MLMs. You start as a customer and they will eventually try to recruit you to sell because that's how they make their money. Anyway, I do wish you all the best, and I hope you continue to see results.

If I were you I would ask your team about this. I have heard people who swear by the product. I just don’t know if it is good for us or if it is just overpriced Vitamins. Personally if I considered it the one I would ask would be the NP for my team. She does a ton of research into stuff like this so she can give informed answers. If I think of it I will ask her at my next appointment in November because now I’m curious.

      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.  💪
