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.

      Hey October Surgery friends...how are you doing? I've lost 15 lbs since surgery on 18th.42 lbs overall. Wearing clothes that feel great. Had a bout of cold and stomach flu and still having some nausea off and on after that but getting better, I think. 
      Seems like I fill up and have minor pain quicker when I eat hot foods rather than cold. Anyone else notice this?
      Still sooo glad I did this.

        I had surgery Oct 29. Lost 35#. Plateau now. But seeing what clothes fit now is encouraging.
