I'm having doubts about this whole deal...is this really going to work for me?  I've tried low/no carb diets in the past and yes, I lose weight but I can't stick with it more than 3 weeks.  How is eating with the sleeve a

Happy Friday!

I am considering purchasing a FIT BIT but am looking for your honest opinion on yours.  Do you like it?  Does it help?  Would you purchase it again or purchase something else?  Other feedback?

Thanks!!

Question of the day....

I know that after care and support groups etc...are really critical to long-term success.  How important is it to have the after care etc...with the surgeon who performed the sleeve?  I know ideally it is best but since
