  1. 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!

  2. 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!





  3. Thank you so much for all your inputs and help! I really appreciate all your help!

    You guys are right, I dont eat as much as I used to but I dont count my calories, I eat whatever I feel like it. I need to change my eating habits again and I have enrolled back with a nutritionist through my work... :)

    Thank you again!

  4. Hello everyone! its been 2 years since my sleeves and I am loving it more and more everyday! No more insulin and medication. My A1C level is 6.0.. imagine from 12!!! I am very happy to be where I am now, my kids and I are doing more activities than before! I felt 20 years younger now and I am thankful to God and my family for all the support they have given me in this journey. For all of you out there who are planning to be in the same journey and for those who had been in this journey as well.... CONGRATULATIONS!!! We are so blessed!!!

    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!!!
