I only know of 1 person who said they regretted having the surgery! She was mad because she did not think that she had to do anything. She thought the surgery would take care of the obesity. Not sure how she passed her psych eval! I continue to work harder than I ever have in the past. It takes hard work and having to really address your food issues and learn new ways! But I donot regret having done it at all! I am grateful for this surgery.

Well, it is back to work on Tuesday night. It actually will be good to get back into my routine again. Bored at home-even though I have been getting acquanted with my pouchie. I wear my fitbit zip at work and that keeps track of all my walking steps at work-and we do alot there. I am going to keep a little notepad in my lunch kit at work to keep track of my protein at work, etc.
My Journey is a work in Progress!!

I had the sleeve on 12/07. I had this initial craving and was asking my husband to stop at every restaurant we passed. It stopped as I realized I could still eventually eat. The cream soups in phase 2 made a big difference.
