  1. Hello fellow sleeves This is my road that I traveled, my trip started in 2013. My sugar went out of control, my BP was uncontrolled on 5 medication. My port on my lapband was starting to bother me( yes lapband that I was never able to use due to the fact that it rubbed my outer stomach raw. I had come to the end of my road. Started on my trip I did all of required testing, than the insurance denied me for surgery. My doctor was very upset due to the fact that I was really hitting rock bottom. He called and spoke with the insurance and they approved my surgery. My date was schedule for August 20,2013. I was so excited. I was schedule for 3 pm my surgery went well and I was in my room by 8 pm after the recovery room. I was walking that night due to anesthesia rolling in my back. The surgery consisted of removing the lap band and port and having a sleeve done. First week home I rested. I was unable to keep down food with artificial sugar. So protein in my diet came from meat and food. My first trip to the ER was 3 months later due to dehydration, than I had 2 more trips between November and March. I was still struggling with artificial sugar. In May my gall bladder had to come out. This was about the time I started feeling good. A set back not to bad. On my 2 week check up I had another gall bladder attack. Come to find out there was stones that was left and had to be removed. I was still not able to slow down. But after the last gall bladder attack I was willing to stop and sit. So I was finally on my way to recovery. I went from 285lbs pre surgery to my current weight of 135lbs. I wanted to stay at 160lbs but my body new best. So after my gall bladder was removed and the stones removed I was at 135lbs and over a year since that I am still at 135lbs. My health is great. My sugar is gone , my BP is under controlled with no meds. My eating is healthy and I am not eating to feel full. I am eating to be healthy. I am at 21/2 years out and I am loving the new me

    Everyone is different. But if you are willing to put in the work( getting you dates and appointments In order) yes you will get there as well. We all have demons to slay for us to get where we need to be health wise. I am glad I can share and maybe help someone alone the way

    Your body is going through a lot of changes. Make sure you eat and have snacks with you just in case. I've been there. Your body is needing more but the trick is not to over eat. That's why smaller plates more often is the key

    I feel full when I eat. My plate is a dessert plate not a regular plate. When I started this road trip I was eating off a full size plate. I felt horrible because my mind caught in late that I was full. So I was always feeling some kinda way after I ate. So than I went to a dessert plate now I eat a feel fine I can always get more food but I can't take away that feeling of over eating

    Oatmeal for breakfast, lunch is a salad and dinner meat and veggies. But first is have to remember that I have to eat. I don't get hungry much. I hit 135 in May of last year and keep the weight off. I go between 133 and 138 for over a year and a half

    August 2013 Roll Call

    GM August sleevers. I was sleeved on August 19,2013. Currently I am down 90 lbs. my goal was to get between 160-170. I only have 4 pounds to go before I hit 170. It has been a long road of adjustments and life changes. This was the best choice that I have made in a long time. My health is more important to me that what people are saying to me. Every morning I wake up I am blessed. This road was different than when I had the Lapband done. What a waste that surgery was. Day of surgery. Best day ever Weight at heaviest 265 Weight now 173 After surgery and before hair started falling out Hair after I cut it off, due to hair loss
