    Happy Friday everyone! It’s been almost 5 years now since my Surgery and I will tell you that each and every single day, I thank God for giving me this chance to be healthy again! Having the surgery is one of the greatest decision I have ever made in my life! My 5 children are so happy that I get to live longer to see them have their own family! So far I have 2 grand kids now... 11 years old and a 2 years old! My 28yr old son (oldest) is getting married this coming February 2020. I am so excited! You are all beautiful! Keep up the good work and dont ever give up!
  3. I would love to see great stories on how you feel today after years from your surgery! My name is Char and I had my surgery 2015, I started at 230 lbs and I am currently around 160-170lbs. I can say that I feel so great with how my health improved, my self confidence, my love to myself and the people who surrounds me with positive outlook in my journey. Sure, there are frustrations in my journey but it is all part of the process! Being where I am today made me a better and stronger person... I don’t think I could have not done it if it wasn’t for my children!
  4. Thank you... what I really got is determination and love to self! I used to do insulin 5 times a day with a 450 bloodsugar everyday! Having 5 kids from 27years to 8 years old... I still want to live longer! That is why I made this decision to move forward with the sleeves and I never regret every single minute of it! You guys are awesome and are very capable of doing it... its just time and patience that awaits you!

    Its been 3 years now since my surgery! I have gain some pounds but not to make me feel less beautiful about myself now! I have come a long way! No more insulin, better self esteem and love for self is my greatest achievement! Congratulations to everyone here! You have made the best decision in your life!
  8. SW - 230lbs GW - 140lbs CW - 160lbs Hello everyone. I just wanted to share my story about my journey. 2 years ago I was overweight and sick. I had diabetes but required insulin 5 times a day. I have very limited activities because I get tired easily. That is why I made a decision to do this and I can tell you now without a doubt that it is the greatest decision I have made in my life! Now, I get to enjoy my life with my kids doing activities, dancing, traveling, spending time with my family and friends! I am a very busy woman as what my friends tell me... I have 5 kids (ages 25, 21, 16, 14 and 6). My two big kids have there own place already. I take care of my mother who goes to dialysis 3 times a week and I worked full time. I can tell you that I am very happy now than ever! I thank God for everything... all the blessing and the trials because HE made me a stronger and better person! I hope my story will inspire you in your journey that you will be facing! Keep positive and always fall in love with yourself!!!
