Tomorrow will be 1 week that I have had my surgery. I'm feeling great. I can't wait until Wednesday for my post -op and those staples out. I haven't had any problems at all. I was a little nauseous when I got into my room, but it passed in a hour. I never got sick. I was up walking 6 hours... READ MORE

I'm hoping for relief from my back pain I'm in the injection they give me for pain have made me gain so much weight that they don't work any more. I have had 5 foot surgeries so can't walk very well and fell in my tub after one of them and messed up my back. Relief would be great. I will be so... READ MORE

I have a son named Travus but for the heck of me I cannot figure out this so instead of just commenting on other posts I decided to write one. I just now came from the hospital from my... READ MORE

I've been on this journey since last September. I agree with those who say its not an easy journey. By no means. Mostly, its taking many doctors visits because my cigna insurance has a strict criteria before they approve the surgery. I had to see a sleep doc and undergo sleep lab test and was... READ MORE

Hi all! Nice to meet you. I'm 30, no kids, just bought a condo, I have a dog and I work full time and I've been jumping through the hoops of trying to get this surgery done for the last 7 months. My last step is just being approved by my new (as of Jan) insurance and then setting a date (hoping... READ MORE

After reading all the reviews and enjoying how much they have helped boost my confidence, I decided that sharing my story may help others. I am a 30-year-old mother of three and have been married for 10 years this June 2015. I never had any weight problems as a kid and have always been a... READ MORE

I’ve had a wonderful life thus far but like many others, the weight needs to go!! My gynecologist told me two weeks ago I weighed 241 and I was 5’5 and I replied “No Dr. V, I’m 5’6 and 220”. She just shook her head and I said “you do realize you just called me short AND fat”... READ MORE

I started this journey in October of 2013. I went to Dr. T and he had me go to do an Upper GI, some blood work, and a few other appointments. I was a little leery of doing this during the holidays, but I figured there would be more holidays to come in my future that I would need to eat healthy... READ MORE

I'm 61 and I've been yoyo-ing between size 12 and 18 since I was a teenager. Up and down this same 65lbs about 10 times in all. Every day is a battle and although I've won many days, the only inevitable loss I have at the end, is in the battle. I've hit 61 and I just can't battle again. I... READ MORE

I've struggled with my weight since I was a child. I wavered from thin to chubby my entire life until I met my husband 12 years ago. I was able to keep my weight in check by being absolutely obsessed with it. When I met my husband I started to lose control. He's bigger than me and isn't... READ MORE

I have a confession: I'm addicted to Real Self. A few nights ago, I had my ipad on my lap, fork in one hand with Cinnabon at my side. And I thought to myself, my gosh, I'm reading blogs about weight loss and look at me devouring this Cinnabon! Then last night it was a full glass of ice-cream,... READ MORE
