  4. There is always a light at the end of the tunnel!!! I just wanted to post a picture for everyone, I am almost 9 months out on July 1 and I have lost a total of 66lbs and counting... I would like to lose another 23lbs but its coming slower now that I have gotten closer to goal... I am thoroughly enjoying every second of my life and I feel freer than I ever have!! I work out at least 3 times a week mostly running but also doing light weights to tone up arms and legs... Im enjoying this whole process and I know that i have not always been perfect but I do know the proper behaviours to use this tool responsibly!! here I am before... and here I am ... wearing my scars proudly in a neon bikini!!! bring it on world!!!!!! DFW Area Weight Loss Surgery Support Groups v130703.pdf I hope that everyone has a chance to reflect back on their decision to be sleeved and believe it to be a blessing! I certainly do believe that i have been blessed to have the sleeve and I always hope I cherish it and use this tool to it's full potential... I'd be lying if I didnt say I wasnt scared to go back to those dark days... because I definitely am, so Im trying my best to stay the straight and narrow!!!

    Thinoneday!.... THis was a great post!! Sometimes we rely on our sleeves to do all of the work (myself included) and we end up stalling (me 2 months) because we are no longer making the right choices for ourselves!! Im so glad that you are seeing results by going back to the basics!!! Just goes to show that nutrition is VERY important even with the sleeve!!! Keep it up... Im going right back to my basics and I'll keep you posted... I have about 19lbs to reach goal lets do this girl!!!!

    ALMOST 9mos POST OP!! PICS!!!!!! :D

    Its good to hear from you! ... It's always at the back of my mind and I understand now that if I dont stick to a healthy diet that the sleeve is only going to help so much... there are alot of sabotaging slider foods that we have to be careful of and I know that I have to watch that kind of stuff still... i havent gained any weight but my loss has definitely slowed down but i know that if Im 100% on the ball, the weight starts going down again... Im not quite at goal yet but I know with persistence and using this tool correctly I will get there... and Im sure you will keep it off.. if we recognize that it might be possible than we have it in our minds when grabbing one of those sabotage foods. I hope you are doing well and thanks for letting me know that im not the only one!
  9. THis is sooo awesome! way to go! congrats!!!!

  11. I am biased because I used Dr. Pompa at LIMARP, but I LOVED her and i thought my whole surgical experience was phenomenal! The bed side manner was impeccable and I felt as though I was at a spa the whole time. She is certified with the American Physicians Association and located at a 5 star facility in TJ.

  17. Well.... Im going to come clean and say that I have had about a 8 nights since surgery where I have consumed alcohol... one of those being last night.... I dont feel the need to drink alcohol but I find myself in my twenty-something social group going out to the clubs and buying into that lifestyle sometimes..... I am still in my losing stage and I know that this is not a great choice on my part.... AND i must admit ... when i wake up in the morning i feel a little pain underneath my scar in between my boobs... This is definitely a sign telling me that my liver is not appreciating the abuse and I know I have to chill out because I still want to lose another 23lbs to get to goal... BUT most importantly... i want to be healthy .. after all that's why we chose this surgery in the first place.... I just wanted to be honest... but also admit that I havent made all the perfect decisions when it comes to post op lifestyle.
