    I feel amazing. I'm dressed up as Wonder Woman it was superhero day at work. No Way would I have ever fit my costume pre surgery. I'm happy and full of confidence even though I'm not at my goal weight yet. How are you going?

    Reflux is killing me!

    Hi guys, I got my band in February 2017. It has been amazing! I have had next to zero issues until a couple of weeks ago. I am experiencing the worst acid reflux I have ever experienced. It's waking me up at night, and stopping me from eating for most of the day. I haven't had a fill in 4 months so I don't think the band is too tight, but no idea what would have changed recently to make me feel this reflux. Does anyone have any ideas if I need to get my band loosened or should I just take some anti reflux meds until it passes? Appreciate any words of wisdom that anyone has! Thanks xxx

    HI @Bigm666 I had the sleeve surgery. As far as energy drinks go - no bubbles for me, Doctor said it fills you up too quickly. I dont miss it.

    July 2018 Sleevers

    Hey, I just had Gastric Sleeve on July 6th, nearly 2 weeks post surgery. Are you on optifast now? I did 3 weeks on optifast prior to surgery which to be honest I thought was the easiest part. The part I'm at now, for me anyhow, seems to be the hard part lol

    Weigh In Wednesday

    94.2kgs! Very happy with my progress. I've bought a superhero costume for work tomorrow for superhero dress up day. I hope it fits! It's stretchy so I will try my best. Not long and I will drop down to obese category 1. I was told Sips surgery patients lose weight slower than sleeve patients however they lose weight for 2 years. I was expecting slower weight loss and I'm pleasantly surprised. Everyone is doing so well! Millymollymandy 200 grams is nothing. Denzel I understand the being short thing. I'm 162cm which is taller than some but I'm definitely not a tall lady and I've always tended to carry weight in my tummy even as a size 6 if I put on 1kg it would automatically show in the stomach. Can't wait for my stom to get even smaller.

    My surgeon makes his patients give up all caffeinated drinks pre surgery and early post op. No coffee was killer for me!

    I am short - really short! I have the height of an average 12 year old. Thankfully my weight now is in proportion to my height. When I was 82.5 kg I was in shape all right - round! (I don't have any photos of then, but do of when I was around 76 kg. Hideous. No wonder folk don't recognise me now lol!)

    Weigh In Wednesday

    My weight this morning is 78.1kg so up 200g from last week. My fingers automatically type a weight starting with an '8' and even when I went to see my GP last week I told her my weight was 89kg - my brain hasn't caught up yet with the reality of my weight loss. Denzel, I just shake my head every time I read about your weight. You are such a dainty person at 51kg - I'd be worried about you blowing away in a strong gust of wind. Mandy and Boganlicious, you are both making such good progress. Congratulations!

    I have a question what is the verdict on energy drinks pre and post op even if i have to go sugar free variety. I know I'll have to invest in protein powder and Vitamins but why is optifast required???

    Well done @zaruse I was hoping someone would update soon as we are all at or close to two months post op. I have now lost 23.8kgs and have 15.7kgs to get to my goal of 75kgs. Unbelievable! I have come off my BP medication and my Kidneys are tolerating protein with no issues! How is everyone else going. Thanks for the update Zaruse, I hope we all continue to update! KAL xx

    Early superannuation release

    Hey Melly, did you lodge your early release application before the cut off date with centrelink? I lodged a few days before the cut off (I was undecided whether I would go through with the early release application due to the overall taxation issue so dithering). I then went to cancel the application after the cut off date but it was no longer available on mygov website under centrelink. I remember a note saying that any applications received before the cut off but undetermined would not be assessed by centrelink/human services. So I thought no need to cancel and forgot all about it. To my surprise today I received a phone call from department of human services saying my application was approved!
