  1. Do you still have the black dress with the lace on it? I love most of your clothes. I would have to have them mailed out because I am in San Diego.
  2. Good Luck!!! My surgery is tomorrow too but I am here in San Diego!! I am nervous and excited and ready to start over! Good luck and keep us posted
  3. Hi everyone! So my surgery is TOMORROW!! I am having the sleeve. I am excited and nervous too. How is everyone doing??
  4. I'm going with the sleeve. I'm super excited.
  5. I am so excited and nervous at the same time! I know I am ready but the unknown makes me nervous. Any advice??
  6. Good luck to you both. I am excited to see how you both do
  7. Oh my you are all so wonderful. Thank you. I have been doing a lot of research and I too have made the decision that I want to do the sleeve. Thanks for sharing your stories with me. I am so ready to do this. I just wish I had my date already. I have completed my psyc eval and diet meeting. I have another meeting and then I meet with my DR to set it all up. I wish you all success and I hope you keep in touch and encourage me too. I love hearing from people who have had this done. Take care all Tricia
  8. Thank you all so much. I think I am going to tell my DR. that I want the sleeve. I have been researching on here and asking everyone I can about it. They all say the same thing. The band works for about a year to two and then they have problems. I know the sleeve is sorta new and they don't have long term data on it but I think that is where I am headed. Thanks to all of you. Good luck to you and to me! I will be on here a lot as I am looking at August for surgery as long as all goes well.
  9. Good Luck to you. Keep us posted. I have just started this process and am looking at August or September for my date. I wanted the band but am now thinking I want the sleeve.
  10. Hi Lisha I am new here too. I am just in the beginning stages right now. My Dr office thinks I could be set and ready to go in August. I just can not decide if I want the band or the sleeve. I have been reading lots on here and still have yet to decide. Are you happy with the band? Any problems?? Tricia
  11. Alleycatwirt I will be at Pomerado on the 10th for that seminar. It is a requirement for be before surgery. It will be great to talk to you. I am leaning more towards the sleeve now. I thought I really wanted the band but the more I hear I like the sleeve. Just nervous about all the complications and if there is stronger change of dumping. How'd your surgery and things go for you? You can private message me if you'd like. Or we can talk at the seminar. I'd also like to meet up with anyone is san diego area too
  12. love the black and white dress. Where did you get it. I would like to see if I can find one that I can wear as I lose weight. I'm a 22-24 now and starting the process into either the sleeve or band. Trying to make up my mind about the sleeve
  13. Thank you. I keep leaning more to the sleeve but I just worry about risks of it. My friend did the band over a year ago and did well but is now having some issues with it too. I just don't know what to do. So hard.
  14. Good Morning! I am in San Diego and just starting out. I have been to see Dr Callery and I have some steps to take - Psyc eval and a few other tests. They said that if all goes well I can be looking at August for surgery. My problem is I am not sure what I want to do - Band or Sleeve. Anyone have advice on here? I thought band and was all set but more I talk to people they say no, you won't lose enough. I want to lose about 100lbs. I'd LOVE to talk with anyone here from San Diego
  15. Hi everyone: I have started the process to weight loss. I thought I knew that I wanted the lap band but now I keep thinking the sleeve might be better for me. I just don't know which one I really want. I need to lose about 100lbs. I have started my counseling and started a good diet and tracking on my fitness pal. I am excited but need to figure out just what I want to do. Anyone have advice? Anyone have lap band - good --- bad --- experiences --- any info for me?? Anyone do he sleeve? Pros cons good bad - any info?? I would appreciate anyone helping me out,''
