    first 5k!

    Ran my first ever 5k today. It was the biggest loser in Chicago. Got to meet Danni Allen and Bobby Saleem. Was an amazing day and can't wait to do my next one. [ATTACH]46983[/ATTACH]

    first 5k!

    I ran my first 5k this morning. Was the biggest loser run/walk in Chicago. I did pretty good can only improve from here! Just wanted to share! I've watched every season of BL since it started. My favorite people to date have been Danni Allen and Bobby Saleem and I got to meet them today. This was such an awesome experience! [ATTACH]46979[/ATTACH]

    my journey - down 103lbs

    Thanks! I'm getting there.
  4. Greetings all! I don't post much but I lurk a lot and see how you are all doing. Good luck to all the newbies and those getting sleeved soon! I was sleeved 12/10/12. I consider myself a slow loser as I'm still 50-60lbs from my goal weight. But I'm down a 103lbs and couldn't be happier! I'm in a way better place than I was 18 months ago. We got pregnant last august and lost it in September and I haven't lost a pound since. No matter what I do i can't seem to get my weight loss started again. I am seeing a new dr now who is helping me get my gut healed. I have leaky gut and am not digesting properly. On the plus side I haven't gained any weight which is key to being a success! I just wanted to share because not all of us lose 150lbs in 6 months and attain goal quickly. I of course would of loved too but my body has other plans. SW: 332 CW: 229 was 26/28 now 14/16. I'm 5'8". [ATTACH]46339[/ATTACH]

    leak test?

    I had one during surgery after to make sure it was closed. Then 24 hr later I had one with radiology before I was allowed to start liquids.

    hi guys

    Meal prepping. I get all my meals ready for the week on Sunday afternoon. I'm less likely to slip up then.

    let's talk gallbladders

    Thank you all for your advice/stories. I have one more Dr appointment before I go in for surgery and I'm going to ask their opinion as well. I feel like since we already 80% of our stomachs removed I'm now dealing with daily constipation due to a lack of enzymes in my tummy to help digest food. I feel like taking the bladder out its going to make it worse. I'll get it sorted out soon Thanks!

    Before & Progress

  13. i knew going into my sleeve surgery that my gallbladder was filled with stones, they werent active or causing problems, so my surgeon wouldnt remove it at the time of my surgery. fastforward to now. i have been having some attacks, i am slated to have it removed april 17th. my question is has anyone done a gallbladder/liver flush prior to gallbladder removal and have it help? i read things online about how amazing it is but i want someone in our shoes to say if it works or not. i already seem to have issues digesting food as i am always constipated now. clearly enzymes that were in my belly to help digest have been removed. my surgeron doesnt see the big deal with constipation. i do however as my food shouldnt be sitting in me for days. i feel if food goes in food should come out. but that's for another day . any one do a cleanse and feel it worked? i am just not sure i want another organ removed if i truly dont need it to be removed. as much as i trust my surgeon they all see $ signs when we come in complaining of pain. there wasnt even a thought about not removing it. it was just "needs to come out". TIA!

    Any Chicago sleevers

    Hi Cathy, I didn't have Dr Guskey but I did have Dr Rantis. Sleever 12/12/12. All the drs at the Kane center are awesome. You'll do great.
