  1. oh im 5'9 started at 250 today 225 goal weight 198 for now. ultimately 185lbs. female.
  2. KGKONYE Where are you??? How are you doing and did the overstich ever happen.. please give us update you left us hanging i see. Hi Renee, i havent had the overstich but actually thought about it . i had a revision from band to sleeve in May 2016 i know its not a year yet but i already feel i am overeating already i have lost 25-30lbs only in about the first 4 months and then it stopped i have not regain any of that lost just up and down 1 lb 2 lbs. i spoke to my doctor who thinks im fine and reminded me that it would be slow since it was a revision but my golly i didnt do a revision to lose 25lbs. so i made a deal with my doctor that i was going to really try hard on focusing on what im eating incorporate a little excersize and by my 1 year May 24th if nothing has not changed i want an endoscopy to find out the size of this sleeve and see if i need an overstitch. fare enough right? So i'm waiting for KGKONYE or RENEE4111 or anyone else that has done an overstictch and the results good bad or indifferent. Thank you..
  3. well congrats to you.. can you tell me did you gain weight from the pizza disaster ? Not that i want to try that althouh i completely understand eating even if your not hungry and it just feels good. i m glae to know im not the only one who feels like that sometimes. keep doing what your doing and best of luck on your journey>
  4. ONE MORE THING ...WHEN I WAS BANDED I LOST LIKE YOU DID SLOW STOP DROP SLOW STOP DROP IT WAS NERVE RACKING BUT WITHIN A YEAR I HAD MADE IT TO GOAL ACTUALLY LOWER.. MY LOWEST WAS 178( WHICH I WAS NOT COMFORTABLE WITH (I'M 5'9) SO I GAINED TO REACH 185 WHICH I LIKED..I ALSO HAD STARTED AT 250. AND AFTER MAINTAINING THAT FOR ABOUT 7 YEARS THE WEIGHT STARTED TO CREEP BACK UP DUE TO BAND FAILURE. SO WITHIN THE 3 YEARS I SLOWLY GAINED BACK ALL OF THE WEIGHT . jUST A LITTLE INFO ANYONE WITH ANY SUGGESTIONS PLEASE PLEASE DO NOT HESITATE TO RESPOND WHETHER GOOD OR BAD OR JUST STRAIGHT FORWARD.
  5. oh my goodness.. everyone on this board and the ones that will be joining needs to hear this .....When i found this i couldn't read it fast enough.. i AM 48 YEAR OLD WOMAN 5' 9 AND STARTED AT 250 ON mAY 24TH 2016..I LOST 25LBS IN ABOUT 12 WEEKS AND THEN IT STOPPED iM SERIOUS IT STOPPED TODAY IS ABOUT 10 MONTHS OUT AND IM STILL 225LBS. IM TRYING TO WRAP MY HEAD AROUND THIS SO I DONT GET DISCOURAGED I TRY TO READ ALOT OF SIMILIAR POST TO KEEP ME UPLIFTED. OH I FORGOT TO MENTION I AM A REVISION FROM A LAPBAND IN 2006 AND REMOVAL AND REVISION TO SLEEVED MAY 2016.. PLEASE PLEASE WRITE MORE SO I DONT GIVE UP.. I DID START THE 5DPT IM ON DAY 4 AND LOST 2LBS.. I PUT A CALL INTO MY DOCTOR REGARDING A REVISION OR RESLEEVE BUT OF COURSE HE SAID ABSOLUTELY NOT.AND THAT HE DID TELL ME THAT BECAUSE I AM A REVISION THAT I SHOULD NOT EXPECT TO LOSE TOO MUCH AND DEFINATELY NOT FAST. OK I CAN DEAL WITH THAT BUT FOR A 7 MONTH STALL ????THAT I WAS NOT READY FOR ..... SO I MADE UP MY MIND TO INCORPORATE MORE WALKING (THAT IS ALL IM ALLOWED TO DO DUE TO SEVERE BACK PAIN, HERNITED DISK, CHIARI MALFORMATION 1, SLIPPED DISK, DEGENERATE DISK,, SCIATICA AND MUCH MORE) AND REALLY STICKING TO MEAT PROTEIN AND SALADS UNTIL MAY 24TH, 2017 (MY ONE YEAR ANNIVERSARY) AND SEE WHAT HAPPENS. mY GOAL WEIGHT IS 185 I WILL BE HAPPY FOR THE REST OF MY LIFE IF I STAYED AT 198. SO WE ARE TALKING A MERELY 27LBS MINIMUM RIGHT? RIGHT!..SO I WILL CONTINUE TO READ AND READ AND READ THANKS TOO EVERYONE THAT SHARES THEIR EXPERIENCES IT TRULY HELPS OTHERS EVEN WHEN YOU THINK YOUR JUST VENTING. SLEEVED524
