I am 38 yo mom and wife who started gaining weight after my first child. It went down slightly when I got pregnant with my son 3 yrs later. Sadly I hurt my back and then found out about a heart condition I have. The depression and weight packed on. Finally after months of studying the sleeve, I took the plunge on 1/09/13 and took my first weight loss class and got my certificate to start my journey. On 1/20/13 I met Dr. Teel and before I left the parking garage that day to head home I had my nutritionist and psych eval appts. scheduled. I stayed on the ball and before my two week Pre op diet weighed 254. On surgery day I weighed in at 248 and continue to fight every day to maintain my choice at a new life. I hope my journey continues with you all and we can do this as friends and fight our obesity together.
