    Welcome, I'm about 30 from Campbellsville. I still love my sleeve. I couldn't survive without it..
  4. 2 years has passed since you registered at VerticalSleeveTalk! Happy 2nd Anniversary Ky.hen!

  5. I hope all is going well with you. I see you have not posted in awhile, will be glad to see some more of your comments on here. I have been off for awhile also. I just recently posted some new photos on here. I used one of them to put my new profile picture. I am now at 181.6 pounds. I do not regret having the sleeve.

  6. I also had surgery with Dr. Aceves. I did'nt have any problems and would go back there in a heartbeat. I was treated with great care and kindness.
  7. Ky.hen,

    Haven't heard from you lately but noticed you reached your goal? Wow, so happy for you. Take care.


  8. Hello Ky. hen,


    I have not been on here for awhile so I thought I would check to see how you have been doing. I will be glad to hear from you. Please let us know how you are doing. I hope and pray that your family will be safe during this bad weather that Kentucky is expecting today and tomorrow. I hope that you are doing ok on your journey.

  9. Thank you for the encouragement. Sorry that I haven't been on here much lately. I have been dealing with some family issues and having computer problems.

    I happy to hear that you are doing ok. I will try to take time to keep updated on your progress. Judy

  10. Wow, your ticker tells me you have lost 40 pounds and Charitymarroquin was congratulating you on making it to onederland. How does it feel to be in the hundreds? I have a ways to go before I get there. I have about 17 more pounds to go before I drop below the 200 mark. I do feel alots better, I am at 216.8, and I have not been below the 220 mark for at least 20+ years. Back in July, I weighed almost 267, so I have now lost 50 pounds since then. People are starting to notice that I am really losing weight now. I have not been on the forum for quite some time, the computors have been giving us trouble. Maybe now I can get on here and let everyone know how I am doing. As soon as I got on here tonight, I went to your profile statistics to read your last post to see how you are doing. I noticed your ticker and I am so happy you lost more than what your goal was for Christmas. I hope you are doing ok! I want to wish you and your family a very merry Christmas!!

  12. I am so happy for you!! Please read what I posted on my profile:

    Thank you all for your comments and prayers, you have been a blessing in my life.

    Well Ky.hen I see that you reached your goal before Christmas, congratulations. And Tiffikins I am amazed at how much weight you have lost since your surgery in June wow 111 pounds only 9 more pounds to goal. You are going to start the New Year out just right!! Carolyn24seven be sure to save one of your biggest pairs of pants before you do get rid of any and thank you for your comments.

  13. Congratulations on making it to Onederland! I know that is such an exciting accomplishment! I have 15lbs. before I get there, but I am so excited about it!

    Just sleeved!

    Welcome to Vst. I'm sorry you were in pain. The worst part is over now. Everyday will get easier for you.
  15. Megan, You are going to love Dr. Aceves and his staff. They are wonderful. I used to love carbs too. After my surgery, I have no desire to eat anything sweet tasting. I have taken a couple of bites of candy or a cookie and it really makes me feel sick. I do like a little fruit or one or two bites of pasta sometimes. You can find lots of veg. cookbooks out there to help you out. I think that you are going to be pleased with the sleeve. I already feel so much better and more in control. Keep us updated on your progress. We are here to help you.
