    Spent the last half hour checking out the profiles of some of the challenge folks, you know, just for the fun of it. It was VERY encouraging! We've got members with a whole lot to lose, members with not so much to lose, members just getting started, members near the end of this part of the journey, and some VERY beautiful people! Who knew!?! LOL!

    Still pre-op but eating less. NSV - I can't keep my pants on! Tried to hold them up while grocery shopping today but pretty sure dozens of people saw a significant portion of my undies. Time to pull out the sewing machine!

    I was at my (1) month post-op follow-up with my primary on Tuesday. I had taken off my shoes to weigh in. While at the front desk checking out, without even thinking about it, I bent down to tie my shoes. It was pretty effortless. When I stood back up, I realized what had just happened. I bent down to tie my shoes. Without feeling faint. Without cutting off my breathing. Without having my face turn red.
    Such a simple thing. I was thrilled.

    Just hit my 100lb loss since I started my journey last July. 76 since surgery.
    I workout using a hypertrophy training routine I got from www.JEFIT.com
    If you do any kind of weight training I highly recommend this site and app. They have many prebuild weight lifting programs.
    I can't wait until May when I go back to get my body analysis done. At 3 months I had put on 11lbs of muscle and since then I guarantee that I am over 20lbs of muscle. The weight is just rolling off of me.
    I live on Protein shakes being that I lift weights 5 days a week. My favs are Isopure-chocolate, Combat-cinnamon bun, nectar - Any flavor, Iso100 - birthday cake (this stuff is amazing. Add any fruit to it)

    I've gone to the meetings the last 2 months. They are held the last Thursday of every month @ Synergy @ 6:30. We meet for about an hour or so. I really do like the meetings. Everyone is so supportive and willing to share their journey! If you can't make tomorrow - come next month! I mayyy be there. I'll be about 10 days post op then!

    I had a Tummy Tuck in Oct. My labia was kinda long. My sweet surgeon pulled everything up and back where it needs to be. I am extremely happy with the results.

    Im posting this from a strictly guessing point of view. .. with the little information you've given it sounds like you have already lost the major of your weight with the band but due to problems you had to switch to the sleeve. Is it possible that because you only have a few more lbs to lose the sleeve is more of a maintenance tool for you instead of a weight loss tool? I don't know much about the band but I would imagine the restriction would be similar so with only 15 additional lbs to lose I don't think you'd want the sleeve to put you into weight loss overdrive. I'd think anyone that close to goal would really need to work it in order to reach goal. I think no matter the circumstances the last few lbs are always the hardest to lose. Anyway, just a thought...
