  1. I had my Sleeve in August 2012. I post on my anniversary each year. In 2012, I was 52 years old and weighed 275. I am now 60 and weigh 185. The surgery saved and changed my life.  
  2. I am Scottish. I wear a kilt every day
  3. It has been 7 years since I had the Sleeve. I was 275 prior to the surgery. My goal was 200. My lowest was about 194. I am 200 today. First pic is pre-surgery. Second Pic was last week in my kilt. I Wass 52 when I had my surgery. I am 59 now.

    After 4 years.....

    well, I gave my strategy. Also this: when you feel full, stop eating. You do not want to stretch your stomach back out. After 4 years, I still cannot eat a whole hamburger or steak. I still get full very fast.

    That is how it has worked for me. Protein Shakes for breakfast and snacks.....meat for lunch and dinner. Protein bars for the occasional snack. Our office has donuts or bagels every Wednesday. I am proud to report I have never ever partaken.

    After 4 years.....

    Heavens no. I want to stay between 185 and 192. I am not sure I could lose more than that.
  7. I was 52 in 2012 when I had the sleeve. I was 275 pounds. I lost 90....and have since gained back 5. Yep. After 4 years, I am still 190. My initial goal was 200. Four years later, I am still 190. I have hovered right at 185-190. The Sleeve changed my life. I get up at 4am daily and walk 5 miles before work. I still Protein load and carb avoid. I drink a LOT of Water daily. For me, the Sleeve has worked.....and continues to work. I was pre-diabetic before. Now, my doc says I have the health of a 30-year-old.
  8. Yes...my skin looks fine. It has been great. I will absolutely be around for anyone here
  9. I am very glad about my decision. I recommend it highly.
  10. I feel amazing. More energy, more alive. I seemed, before, to always feel poorly...now I have not been "sick" in 2.5 years. I am told I look 20 years younger
  11. I was at 275. I wanted to get down to 200. At 52, it was not easy. I got down to 185-190. I have maintained that loss. I am still hovering around 188. I still take in a ton of Protein, a ton of Water and next to zero carbs. And I walk 5 miles every day. It CAN be done.......I am 54 and my medical lab work has me as healthy as I was at 30.

    Biggest challenge now? None really. I just refuse to over do it. When I start feeling full, I stop. I still drink Protein drinks- 75-100 grams a day. I still stay away from carbs. I do not eat fast food. Most of what I eat is grilled. And I walk 5 miles a day. I am 54.....and my doc says I have the health of a 30-year-old. Like I said....the surgery changed my life. The young attorneys cannot keep up with me. Best thing I ever did.

    On August 13, 2014, I celebrated the 2-year anniversary of my sleeve. I started at 275. My goal in August 2012 was to get down to 200. I got down to around 190. As of today, I am still hovering between 188 and 192. Two years later. The surgery changed my life.

    Regarding Protein 5 months post-sleeve

    All day. I prolly drink 60-80 ounces of Water a day. I think my routine is ok...but wanted to know if 100 ounces was too much and I should stick with 75 ounces a day of protien
