Hello, my name is Emilee and I had the surgery in June of 2004. But have only today found this site, wish I had found it sooner. My starting weight was 303 and I'm down to 215....not where I thought I would be at this point, but I'm still very happy with my results. And the results aren't as great as they could be, because of me. I met my boyfriend and haven't been working out like I can and should...but I am happy that I've been maintaining this weight for months now and it's not like int he past where I would just balloon up again. I know as soon as I start working on it again, the weight will come off. I've only had one fill and that was a little over a year ago. I've been thinking about going in for another, but want to get down to 200 on my own before doing it. I haven't had a lot of time to look around the site, but plan on doing it. This place looks great and I hope to get to know all of you better!

Welcome to LBT Emilee! Taking time off to enjoy a new boyfriend is a great reason in my book. Sometimes maintaining feels just as good as losing. :D

Exactly....I actually feel proud to be maintaining at this point. For so long, everytime I got on the scale the number was higher. I know that will never happen again, when I was losing everytime I got on the scale I knew I would never see that number again. But I really do plan on working out more once the spring comes. We just moved(which was a lot of stress) so now that things are settling down, I really want to work on losing the last of my weight. With summer coming and trips to Texas in the future planned, I have a reason to get ready to be in a swimsuit.

Thanks for all your comments...this board seems great!

Hey EmileeKaye,

Welcome! GREAT weight loss! And only 1 fill - WOW!

Kim

That is what has been so suprising to me on this board so far. It sounds as if fills are happening a lot more frequent. I didn't have my first fill until around the 7 month, I lost about 30lb after that fill, but lost most of the weight before the fill. Right now I really want to lose around 15 and have another fill, with the same results I would be around my goal weight, which is exciting!

Hi Emilee, welcome to LBT!! I'm in maintenance mode too, and it's giving me every bit as much joy as losing did. It's such a miracle to step on the scale every.single.morning and have the numbers be very close to the same. It must almost be what normal people experience! :mad:

      My 3 babies and my little "niece". Took on a babysitting job this past weekend. She is super tiny compared to my 3 biggies. Sitting on command for treat-os!
       
      Pre-op Liquid - Day 2 
      It was very hard today...I'm feeling some type of way from not eating the meals I was supposed to before the pre-op diet. My sister got stuck in Dallas a week before my diet and we were supposed to go on a nice dinner, but that never happened. I have super bad dry mouth and bathroom breaks are more frequent.

      Pre-op Liquid Diet - Day 1
      Had my morning cup of 8 oz Regular Orange Juice. I am ready!!! I did have 3 bites of my fiance's cheesecake last night for dinner. It was so yummy but with my former sleeve it didn't allow me any more bites.

      It's Saturday!!! My fiance and I are out doing yard work and I made the mistake of not staying hydrated before going out so now my body is shaking and weak. I have my pre-op appointment Tuesday, the 2nd and I am trying my hardest to lose another 2 lbs by then.
