Wow.. I really cannot believe it is May already! Where does the time go? May 13th is my day of appointments! WooHoo... I am very excited. As I get closer - I know I will start getting nervous! I really need to stop reading the negative posts. Why are there some people who have great success and some who fail miserably? I know that some fail because they do not follow the rules. But are there some that follow the rules and still have issues? Can you take your vitamins as directed and still become malnourished? Ramblings.. However, if you have answers let me know...


  1. hi Suzie - there are so many variables to take into account.
    I have a friend who is losing much slower than everyone around her, and she has thyroid issues. She still has lost a great deal of weight, but she is still 100 lbs from goal at a year out.
    I have another friend who has lost 175 lbs in that same year.
    Every body is different, and reacts differently. Every surgeon is different too. They are the ones that control the size of your pouch.. You may want to ask him what size he is planning on making yours.
    If you take your vitamins as directed, you may need to tinker a few times... but it is ULTRA important to get your labwork done at the specified times, so any problems are caught early on.
    Hope this helps! :)

  2. Sooo... we need an update! How were your appointments? :)
