    My sister today told me "you look marvelous but what happened to your boobs?" And then she said "Why are you trying to lose 18-23 more pounds are you going for A cup titties?" To this I replied "well it looks like I am going to end up buying some anyways does it really matter how small they get?" Lol mind you they aren't that small yet I am a D (small D?)but compared to my previous FF that is tiny I guess but I am 5'2.5 . My main issue with them is that they look so deflated and droopy My lower abdomen has a sagging pouch from weightloss and pregnancies ...Mommy makeover is in my future but if I have to tackle one at a time my Boobs will be first:)
  3. I had a few issues 1 month post op and was in the hospital not able to eat for about 3 weeks. My docs took care of me and avoided reoperation.I would 100% do it again this surgery has changed my life. No more BP meds and I can sleep c-pap free,no achy feet,knees,back unless I really do something to cause it. I really empathize with the OP and anyone who has experienced severe complications like these. The fact remains that the risks while present are low and these folks represent that 1% . I wish nothing but the best for the OP and anyone else going through a horrific experience with the sleeve. The sleeve still saves more lives than it takes.
  4. Thanks! as for working out a lot.... No I still hate exercise ...I aim for 30 mins a day 5-6 days a week but sometimes it is 60mins 3days a week . I have an Elliptical and do calisthenics .I am a lot more active in general now though . I am making a myself a promise that once my kids are back at school I will get my butt over the gym daily and take some classes bc those seem better to me:)
  5. I started my pre ip diet at 226 my highest weight was 234...I had my surgery on 11/07/12 today I am 148 and I have a bit of loose skin but it isn't terrible I will post pics...I am also 33yrs old I am short though only 5'2.5 The swimsuit photos are from about 1.5 month ago and I was about 5lbs heavier than my 8 month photo which is where I am now .Swimsuit not cutest pics but included pics so you could see skin etc...

    I am right there with you Almam...We have been in a hotel waiting for our house to be ready for over 2 weeks I have had a hard time sticking to only "good" eating . The scale is staying between 148-149 at least I have not gained :/
  7. I am in a stall and have been since July 12 so nearly 4 weeks...I am 13 lbs from surgeon's goal and 23 lbs from my personal goal. I am 9 months out today and down 70 lbs since surgery I am just plugging along. This is not my first stall but is one of my longest I stalled for a while at month 3 too.I know my weightloss is going to be even slower approaching goals . I can't wait till my scale stops bouncing between 148-149 though lol
