I've posted this all over the place, but I had serious health complications in May/June of 2011. My doctors had a talk with me and told me that I wouldn't live another year unless I lost a bunch of weight in a hurry. I'd already been looking into WLS, but that talk convinced me it was definitely time. I had deep vein thrombosis (blood clots), pulmonary emboli (2), rheumatoid arthritis in my knees, borderline diabetes and sleep apnea.

I was sleeved on August 30, 2011 and I've been high energy ever since. No complications and I've lost 94 pounds as of April 28, 2012, so less than 8 months. I'm anticipating 100 pounds lost by May 15, 2012, so I can join the Century Club!!

I advocate for WLS every chance I get and I am constantly on the lookout for those NSV's or Non Scale Victories!
