Hi Skinnylady, I'm also in the slow-down phase after surgery and it's tough to drop those pounds. Had to up my regular workout - the same old same old wasn't enough. I also did the 5 day pouch test to remember the tightness my pouch once was - it also helps get back into the good way of eating. You find it at http://www.5daypouchtest.com/ also for support and information. Check out www.thinnertimes.com There are a lot of us on there giving support and information. Good luck!View Thread
I am not a gastric sleeve expert as i had the bypass. all is good with me. but since there is not very many people posting here - try www.thinnertimes.com or thinnertimesforum.com as there is a very large community of members that have had the sleeve, banding and bypass there. Think you'll find the support and information you're looking for. best wishes!View Thread
