    Hi - shortie here....my mom is 4'11" and passed that gene to me! I am 5'1" and highest weight was 230. I am happy to say I reached my doctor's goal of 140 at 9 months. I would really like to be at 135 so still sticking in there!
    Good luck guys!!! Any questions ask away!!
    I am currently in a size 14 (although my hubby says they are way too loose) a size 12 is still a little too tight on jeans.
    I keep having to stop myself from going to the 2XL size racks. In tops I am wearing a 12-14 large (but I don't like tight stuff so medium would fit but be tight.)
    In scrubs for work I am in medium and they are getting WAY too big (I used to wear 2XL),
    I got to the point you have to try stuff on because what your head is used to wearing does not fit your body anymore.

    I noticed I could not stomach Bariatric Advantage Multivitamins and shakes AFTER the surgery. I did drink some before the surgery no problem. Now I can tolerate the BA B12 Vitamins and the BA Iron but still not the multivitamins. You might not want to purchase too many of anything BA until you see if you can tolerate them. I found a Multivitamin at the Vitamin Shoppe (Nature's Plus Adult chewable in Pineapple) and my doctor looked at the ingredients and liked what he saw so he is fine with it. My labs look great.

    Gas bubbles get trapped inside your body and have to work their way out after surgery. I was having severe shoulder pain. It was gas. At week three it got better. This too shall pass. Gas X does seem to help. Also having my hubby chop massage my back helped too. Good luck!

    Hey supermom, and joycelyn, my prayers are with you both.
    I lost my dad in 2006, and he hated me being overweight, it took me another 4 years after he died to make this journey, I regret that he never saw me succeed, and be healthier.
    I don't need to know either of your dads to know how much of a gift it is for them to have seen you grasping the opportunity to get healthier.
    Big hugs xx

    The main reason I ever considered the surgery was my Father. He had a heart attack in March of last year, he was not overweight he just wore out his heart. While he was in the hospital I told him about maybe checking into WLS. Every day he would ask me if I spoke to the doctor yet. When I did talk to my pcp she was all excited and suggested the sleeve. When I told my father about this surgery he so positive. Told me to get it. I lost my dad in July and I made a promise to him and myself to do this. So I can't back out now. I know he would have loved to be around to see this happen. I have my angel to see me through this.

    Kind of in a blah mood. Reached doctor's goal of 140 several weeks ago. Problem was the day(s) I reached it I was sitting in intensive care waiting room after hearing my dad has brain cancer (which spread from lung cancer heavy smoker) that we did not know he had. Three surgeries later he is home and has started radiation. I have been spending my days between work and visiting/helping mom and dad.
    Funny how a year ago the biggest problem I was worried about was my weight. Don't get me wrong.....still super happy I had the surgery. I feel better. BP, glucose, knees all are MUCH better.
    I want to get down to 135 (my personal goal)
    Just weird that after trying so hard to reach doctor's goal I passed it without almost knowing. Bittersweet.
    ENJOY YOUR FAMILIES......YOU NEVER KNOW WHAT THE FUTURE HOLDS.............THE journey of life is the sweet part......but we get so busy sometimes we miss that part!!!
