    Before and After Pics

    I'll be 4 yrs post OP this July. I initially lost 125lbs, I've unfortunately gained back about 18lbs, I went from a 24/26 to a 10/14 depending on brand. I'm 5'3" and will be 50 this July. Besides marrying my hubby...30 yrs this June... this was the best decision I've ever made. If you're on the fence about having surgery, weigh the options, pros and cons, keep taking meds, not keeping up with the family, feeling tired.. all the time, I could go on and on, trust me or take back control of your life and health, eat better, walk more, enjoy outings with friends and family.. and be able to keep up, learn to love yourself again. It's up to you, but I will say, if you decide to... you will never regret it. Good luck on this crazy journey we call weight loss surgery y'all... Tracy Johnson

  5. Just a hint over 3 mts post op..sleeve. around 53lbs down. I'm so happy I decided to pay out of pocket and got this done. I bought a pair of pj bottoms this weekend, in a size LARGE! Been married over 26 yrs, hubby has never seen me in a size large. It's amazing. Still have 100lbs or so to go. But..I got this. trixie's line

    Did anyone cheat on preop

    Well crap, I didn't even get to cheat...lol when I realized our insurance wouldn't pay and we had to pay out of pocket for mine, I saw the dr on a Monday and two weeks after on that Tuesday I was getting surgery, so on that Monday visit, he put me in the all liquid diet...lol trixie's line
