  1. I haven't posted in a while, but thought I would post before and after pics. I was sleeved on 12/31/11 and hit my goal weight of 200 lbs in a little more than 9 months. I have been maintaining my weight now for 3 months. My wonderful wife, and support system, has lost 35 lbs by just watching what she eats while supporting me. She has been a great help and is at her ideal weight. The sleeve was a life saver for me and I am more active now than ever. This site has been a great help for me and I appreciate everyone's encouragement. Thank you!!

    Sex... Oh My God... Sex!

    I love this topic! Thank you ouroborous for bringing this up! Not to get too graphic here, but one thing I have really enjoyed during sex is being able to watch what is going on down there! I have lost 131 lbs in my journey and in fact just hit my goal (yea me!) while my wife has lost 30 lbs and is at her ideal weight range. It is amazing being able to see what I missed for so many years. It is such a turn on to see my wife "work her magic" as well as watch "the action" of the "motion" down there! (That's as non graphic as I can get.) And yes, it's true...IT GETS BIGGER!!! Woooohoooo!!! I've read about the hormones in both men and women get released into our system that were previously stored in our fat cells. I believe this! Sex is better than ever!

    Happy Saturday!! Down 2 lbs this week to 199!!! Woohoo!!! GOOOOOOOAAAAAALLLLLLLLL!!!!!!!! It took almost 10 months but I finally made it to my original goal of 200 lbs...that's a loss of 131 lbs!!! I absolutely love my sleeve and I believe this tool has helped me to eat right and utimately has saved my life. I am thankful to all of the support from all of you. I hope to give the same encouragament to you that I have received from all of you. Thank you!! Now, onto my next goal of 190. My Dr and nutritionists suggest my original goal of 200, but I believe I can get to 190 by maintaining my current lifestyle. Nice job to all of you! Looks like everyone is doing quite nicely! Keep it up!!! You can do it!!!

    Although you may not have lost weight on the scale, I bet you still lost inches. That always happened to me during my stalls. Hang in there! Doing great!!

    Vitamin Help!

    I take two chewable vitafusion 500 mg calcium (tastes like candy - sugar coated), two chewable multivitamins, 2500 mcg sublingual B-12, 1000 mg fish oil (I have to swallow this one...couldn't find anything chewable. I waited until 6 weeks out to start this one.), and 10,000 IU Vitamin D chewable. A lot of chewables these days taste like candy. Good luck on your new adventure!!
