    melissa39437 got a reaction from beebee17 in You have to want it bad enough in order to succeed!   
    9 months ago when I took the picture on the left I was miserable, depressed and down right disgusted with myself. Yesterday July 23rd, 9 weeks post op I decided to take some new pictures. The one on the right is one of those pictures. I am so thankful I had such an amazing surgeon and team members. They made sure my surgery was done properly in order to make sure my success is achievable. Dr Maytorena, Long Term WLS, and my coordinator gave me so much more than I could ever have imagined. In 9 short weeks, yes you read that right, I am down over 50 pounds almost 70 pounds counting my preop! I feel better than I have in years! I have more self esteem, better sleep, I'm more active and I now love my life again! I wanted this more than anything in the world and my team made sure it was done the right way, to begin with in order for me to be successful. For that I am forever grateful! If you want to be successful as well I highly recommend these guys. I am not affiliated with them at all other than I had my sleev there. I am sharing my story in hopes that it inspires someone else. Don't ever give up because YOU CAN SUCCEED!!!

    Same! I was a size 20/2X last fall/winter prior to my surgery and was down to an 18 by spring.
    Now I'm a size 12/14 and a S/M. Time for all new clothing, which is starting to get expensive. Downside to having all 4 seasons, I need different wardrobes

    melissa39437 reacted to blizair09 in Best piece of advice you can offer for a post-op sleeve patient   
    I am one year post-op on Thursday.
    My best advice is to do whatever it takes to change your relationship with food. Make food fuel, not a reward, not a comfort, and not a friend. Nothing about this journey is sustainable without making that change.

    I started mines two years ago but only have a video not related but will be uploading my VSG journey. Just waiting on to see how I can get a Macbook because I don't have the money right now to afford one. But I will definitely follow you.
    P.S. That video I did two years ago was when I juice for 60 days and lost a lot of weight but gain it back and a lot more.

    I had mine with Long Term wls May 29th. This was 2 days post op. I'm down 64 pounds today at just over 7 weeks! I am so thankful I did this! I went when they had a special $3,499 plus my airfare. Totally worth every penny! Love my surgeon and so did my PCP here. She said Dr Maytorena did an amazing job, And the records they sent home with me for my file here was outstanding!
