  1. Decided On The Sleeve!

    Congratulations on your decision! I think many of us sleevers started out thinking RNY was the way to go. Hell, I always call LB the gateway surgery I love my sleeve and it's the best decision I could have ever made for myself and the life I want for myself.
  2. Menstrual Cycle

    It could very well be hormonal changes and change in diet, but make sure you ask your doctor's office what they think. Losing weight, exercising more, restricting calories, not getting certain nutrients, and changing up your nutritional intake can all be a factor in your cycle so it could just be a combination of everything that's going on. As you dump fat you're also dumping hormones into your system which could be preventing ovulation or something science-y. Were you regular before surgery? Personally, pre-op I had PCOS and was on a fairly regular (but extended) cycle. I got my period the day of surgery and have had a regular 26-29 day cycle ever since, but I know that a lot of people's bodies and cycles go wonky after surgery.
  3. Am I Crazy?

    I never had cold feet about surgery and have never ever regretted my decision. Absolutely the best decision I could make for myself and my loved ones. You will be giving your kids a gift because you're going to be able to keep up with them better and be more active and present in their lives.
  4. I haven't logged in such a long time! Congrats on your surgery and weight loss. You're well on your way :)

  5. Hungry?

    My hunger came back 2 weeks post-op once my stomach started healing. However, the hunger quickly subsides once I consume any amount of food. Before surgery when I felt ravenous I could eat 2 sandwiches and fries, now it's like 7 ounces of shake. lol

      Yay! That is awesome

  7. Sleep?

    Are you taking any vitamins or supplements close to bedtime? Some of them will also keep you awake
  8. Why Do I Do This To Myself!?

    For the same reason I've been hovering just over 200 for the longest time Could just be you like cake, but I have pointed many a time where I feel good about my eating/exercise accomplishments and reward myself with food fully knowing there's a reason I don't care to explore. Hang in there, it's not going to make you not fit into the new pants. All you can do is keep on trucking.
  9. Yay, impromptu Vegas trip this weekend. Need some R&R

  10. Avalon Natural / Biotin B Complex Shampoo

    Bumping this for you. I figured Nioxin was worth it since it has good reviews
  11. My Sweet Tooth Is Coming Back!

    Protein based subs seem to work with me, I don't like the taste of artificial sweeteners. I've found that the protein shakes really help me not crave other sweets, too.
  12. Of Course!

    I believe all you should need is a note from your doctor saying you are having surgery on such and such date and it is not advised to sit for extended periods of time.
  13. On a non-WLS note, 2 weeks until Comic Con!

  14. Wonder why Kaiser / my surgeon don't check my vitamin levels. Having a COMPLETE panel worked up myself...

  15. Thanks! You too, BTW! Yeah the office could be a bit more forthcoming with information. lol
