    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

    Is there any other truckers out there that's had the gastric sleeve for a while? What do you do for exercise? Dr knows I ride with my hubby full time. He said as long as I easy right and do 30 minutes of really good..sweaty, walking every day, that that should be fine.

  7. 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

    The best Dr.

    I have one of..if not the BEST Dr/surgeon there is in the st louis mo tri-state area..Dr Jay Snow. He works out of mercy hospital in Festus Missouri. If you're in our area and are thinking about any one of the surgeries, he's your guy. He's sweet, he's personable, he listens, he's funny as heck and most of all..he really cares about every one of his patients...I couldn't have asked for a better Dr... trixie's line

    Old ways

    I'm about 9 weeks out. Hubby and I are actually eating lunch at a bbq place. I'm having smoked turkey breast..no bun and green Beans...you can do this, you just have to make the decision now rather than later that you're going to start making better choices. Because believe me...I want, ribs and baked beans and potato salad..but I'm enjoying what I ordered. Good luck. trixie's line

    You all lied!

    Like today, hubby and I were at the mall and he bought himself an auntie Anne's pretzel. I took 2 small bites, he's all..I didn't think you were supposed to have that..I said 2 small bites aren't going to hurt me, if I only take a small bite of something I like...I'm fine, if I don't..then I'm gonna eat the whole freaking thing...lol trixie's line
