    October 2018 Sleevers

    I had my surgery the 22nd too!!
  2. I am having my surgery October 22 and hoping to be back at school ASAP. I’m prenursing! Am I over zealous that I will be back at school so fast? I have a way I can park close and have someone helping with my books. I can probably arrange transportation if I need to. But am I being realistic?
  3. October 22nd! Is the first day of the rest of my life!!! So excited and terrified!
  4. I just got approved for my surgery. I’m excited and my sister thinks that I will be completely flab and will be totally hideous! But I wonder what everyone does during swimsuit season. I have a family cruise planned for April and will probably have my surgery this October. So am I worrying about nothing?

    Swimsuit worries

    I did not take it as discouraging at all ladies! I appreciate the hard honest truth! Did you all work our religiously on your journey? Muscle tone? Does any of that make a difference?
  6. I just got my approval yesterday myself! So excited for this new journey! Congrats

    VSG candidate, boyfriend NOT onboard!

    My sister does not want me to have the surgery. But I have dieted for so long and cut out so much stuff from my diet and being more physically active and I have not had any success. Stress keeps it up. I just do not want to live like this anymore and I have to live with me for the rest of my life and I want this for me and my son so I can me more active with him and be a better example for him. I wish she would do it with me it would help her back but she doesn’t see this positively and nothing I can do will change her mind but she still loves me and is here for me. My husband is stoked though! He said he loves me either way. H just wants me to be healthy
