    I have almost lost 100 pounds! Only only 8 more pounds to go.
  2. WOW! I am about to cry. It is been several months since I checked-in on this site. I will celebrate my 1 year surgerversary on Nov. 30. I have lost 93 pounds and feel awesome. I think I'm emotional because this forum played a major role in my decision to have the sleeve andmy success. To those just starting out, be encouraged. It gets easier. This was the BEST decision I ever made in my life.

  3. Hi there! Just wondering how you are doing?

  4. Yesterday was my 6 month surgerversary! To say I am pleased with my sleeve was an understatement. I'm grateful to have lost 78 pounds and I feel awesome! This site has been such a blessing. Thanks for all the support and encouragement!

  6. Hi! Glad to see this group formed! Looks like I am only the second person to join! They say everything is BIGGER in Texas, so let's get this group going! I will Celebrate 6 months of being Sleeved on may 30 and have lost 78 pounds! I love my sleeve.
  7. Logged in and read a lot of posts from discouraged Sleevers. Listen: this is a lifetime journey. Don't get depressed over a stall or even if you gain a pound or two. There was a time when we would've gained 20 pounds by now! Don't be so hard on yourself. Re-evaluate what your doing or NOT doing and adjust. Go see your doctor, call your nutritionist, increase your workouts, BUT DON'T GIVE UP and surely don't hang your head! YOU ARE A SURVIVOR!

  8. I am 6 pounds away from ONEderland and it feels WONDERFUL!

  9. Congrats on your upcoming surgery!Keep in touch, especially since we are in the same city. Feel free to call me with any questions. I am 6 months out and 75 pounds down!



  10. Ms. Lady, Please go read my blog "Inspiration or Agitation: My friends respond to weight loss." I was honestly amazed that I had one friend who said she would never speak to me again if I had surgery. About 2 months after my procedure, she was begging for my surgeon's number! This is why we have to do what is best for us regardless of what others think. It's funny how "the easy way out" has now become "her way out." Hold on ... You ain't seen nothing yet. The reactions will vary from people being happy for you to people judging you, to some people just being downright stupid! I have lost 73 pounds in 5 months and have heard it all! Be encouraged and keep loving those around you. You will realize that you are an inspiration to them (they just didn't know it). You were bold enough to do what they feared! Take care, NewNatalie

    The best NSV thus far ! ! !

    CONGRATS TIFFY! You have been such an inspiration to so many on this site! I am very grateful for all your support. You deserve the best! I will continue to pray for you and your family. It is a blessing to become a mom!
  12. Celebrating Progress. Today I am 3 months and 22 days post-op. I have lost a total of 67 pounds and dropped from a size 24 to an 18. This has been the best decision of my life! Everyday is not easy, but everyday is worth it! Be encouraged. The best is yet to come.

    Gave my husband the finger...

    You were right to give your hubby the finger! He was suppose to sneak out and eat pizza if that's what he wanted to do. You are a good woman. But the reality is, there will be many days when you will be faced with temptation. This may have been a good test (although a bit insensitive on your husband's part). The world will not stop eating pizza, fried chicken, cheeseburgers, tacos (now, I'm talking to my self) just because you have surgery! I am over 3 months post-op and happy to report that most of the time, I am not bothered by what other people are eating. Your new stomach will help you in this area. I wish you the best! Keep us posted. NewNatalie

    OMG! You will love Dr. Turnquest! He has been phenomenal and he is very well respected. Maybe our paths will cross in his office one day! I think I have an appointment March 26!

    These pics were taken 3 months post-op! My weight loss is about 56 pounds in these pics. I have very few BEFORE pics because I refused to take photos! Promise to try and post a few old photos so you can see the difference! I BELIEVE IN THE SLEEVE!
