2.5 years post sleeve, ive stabled out with slight loses. Not looking at getting all done at once, just want to get the consult to get an idea of prices best insurance to go with. Just really looking at m options. I ideally want my arms, would like my legs, tummy, boobs quoted as well. Its really just to get a baseline to look at getting it in about a years time. Just want recommendations for a good consult at this point in time i will heavily research it but you need to start somewhere.
Highly recommend reading as many positive stories as possible, but also read the negatives. You need the negatives to know what will come. only you can decide on which way to go. As for permanent, really whats to say something doesnt happen where it gets taken for another reason. Reality this is a disease, this is a a tool to help. You can live with it, i dont think you will care when you are 70. It's hard but not many people regret it. You need to start eating better foods for sure, but its not like you can't have it ever again either.
Not odd at all. i never had a 16, 18, 21, just family things i have 30 coming up and dont really want anything. Do you, if you want to possibly do a dinner do dinner another day with your friend, it doesn't have to be on your birthday for it to be for your birthday.
just want to encourage others, as before and afters are what really motivates you. thank you all i must say, one of the things i hated before, not being able to wear boots. I love that i can wear normal people boots and not worry.
It's funny i was talking with my friend, only one of a few that know about my surgery. As she has just had the ESG. A question she asked me was, you must feel amazing. To that i answered no. It's funny how im the smallest i've been since before i can remember definitely would be at least 15 since i was this weight. But i still feel MASSIVE, i know i can fit a size 12-14 but the skin is such a deterrent that it adds to your appearance where you cover up, like my arms are sooo bad that i never have them up or having them uncovered. I have attached a picture of my arm to show, its not in my head. However i have not, not once regretted what i have done. I just thought it funny when my friend asked who has known me since highschool who says i look amazing and doesn't remember me as small as i am now ever that i still dont feel that small.
I was back at work full time 2 weeks i was tired sure but it was very doable, kids birthday you will be hella tired, however i think for you you should do the surgery and you will be there for you daughter.
i may be wrong, but i thought you could still have one cup of coffee before? its been a long time for me so don't hold that against me. But pretty sure people use to add coffee to optifast. obviously i am not doctor/dietician, so follow your instructions. Good Luck the time will seem like it takes forever but will really be here before you know it.
