Decided to have the surgery at the urging of my son. He wanted to do it and new I could benifit from it also. Dr. Gluck is an hour away from where we live so we have gone through this together. He is 34 and I am 57. It's been great having a partner to work with... It really is a family affair. His wife and my husband have been awesome in this journey. They are trying to be by products and get healthy along with us. At this date we are both pretty much at goal... he has lost about 125 lbs. and I've lost 107. We still work on this together and try to get lots of exercise. We have started to jog and doing some 5ks. I have lots of skin to tighten,, that's a problem but a good one...

I was wearing a size 22-24 when I got the sleeve and now I'm a size 6 or 8 depending on the clothes. It's now always a easy journey. In the beginning I wondered what I had done,, maybe I should of tried harder to lose the weight... but I knew I had a life time of trying and it wasn't coming off.. or it did some and came back.... I can say now it is well worth it! So glad I did it!!! I don't remember ever being this small! Wish I had done this years ago!! I can now get down on the floor and play with my grandkids.. I'm backing to walking and even jogging some! Went to Disney in Dec. and was able to keep up with the kids and had a ball!! Don't be afraid to do this!! But yes pick a good Doctor!! Dr. Gluck and his team are wonderful! They take good care of you!
