    5’2 <br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> HW 225<br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> SW 207<br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> GW 140<br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> Sleeved 6/18/2020<br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> I am a very blunt person and will tell it like it is. <br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> I got the sleeve because of my continuous lung and stomach problems growing up. I had esophageal bleeds and stomach bleeds that required endoscopies and surgeries to control. <br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> By 15 I was referred to a new pulmonologist who showed my why he believes my lungs have early onset signs of COPD and we took as many precautions as to try to reverse my lungs from getting worse. A few years later I was diagnosed with hypotension. After years of little to no improvement but thankfully no decline on my lungs or blood pressure, we discussed the sleeve. <br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> My surgery was delayed 6 times due to the surgical restrictions because of the COVID-19 Pandemic, though I did get my surgery on June 18th, 2020! The only main difficulty I am having since surgery is trying to stick to my meal plan. I never feel hungry and it’s hard to make myself eat. I still do it, but am trying to look for new ways to manage a new eating routine. <br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> I have gained weight due to steroids and prednisone over the years, but was never getting this surgery for weight loss reasons. I want to have a happier and healthier life where I don’t need to count my breathing in my head, I am able to explore more of life since surgery. <br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> I am thankful for all this new life has given me already and I can’t wait to see what more I can do without all these health restrictions holding me back anymore! 💕
