Why is it that I look at your photo at 156 and think you look amazing and very petite, and I'm 5ft 10 and 150lb and I think I'm still huge? Do our heads EVER catch up?

You look incredible!

Hello tiffykins,

I alway look through the photo section of this forum and your picture always makes me look at the rest of your photos. You have always been a big inspiration for me to keep hanging in there and not give up on having the sleeve. I had the sleeve on Dec.2 and I hope that I reach my goal. I am 5' 4.5" tall and my goal is 145. On Dec.14 in the morning I weighed 220.6, so I have 75.6 pounds more pounds to lose to my goal of 145. Now whenever I look at all your picture updates, I get so inspired to try harder to do what I need to do to get to that goal. I am glad that you come on here to share often. I am so thankful that I saw this thread and clicked onto it. Have a great day and I wish you all the best on reaching your goal of 150!!!!

I had a friend send me this "before" picture, and thought I would share with everyone. This is from sometime in the spring of 2007. I don't recognize myself in this picture, and am just kind of in shock with this comparison.

For all those considering this surgery, here's proof it works. For those struggling, please don't give up.

Before: I'm the short one on the left.

      I feel like I've finally gotten past the biggest hurdle. Surgery date is September 6th, the day after Labor Day, and yesterday I got my insurance approval letter. I've followed everything they've told me to do, and I've even lost 30 lbs on my own since hubby had to change his diet for diabetes. No worries now about having to do 4 weeks of the liver shrinking diet instead of 2. On my initial visit, if I had gained just 5lbs I would have had to do 4 weeks. It's getting closer. Just 2 more months to wait.

        Although the prep work took energy, I found the biggest hurdle was post-operative. The first 48 hrs were extremely uncomfortable. I did an overnight and trying to down the liquids, Tylenol, and especially the barium was rough. Thankfully though, I got away with only having to have 1 belly injection after surgery. Needless are not my thing.

      I am looking for people to connect with that are 4-5 years out. Many of the support sights I go to are all newbies. And while I enjoyed that when i first had my surgery and found it useful, I am looking to exchange ideas with folks that are out a few years. I am slowly gaining weight back and losing my excitement. I don't want that!

      How do you stay focused? I'm struggling a bit the past three days.  All I want is sweets and carbs.  I have no clue what changed but for some reason I'm craving hard.  I'm literally dreaming about food and when I wake up, I'm thinking about my next meal.  I'm not "hungry" but so munchy.  I'm trying to stay focused, busy, exercise and the likes but this looking struggle is getting to be so hard.  I meet with my nutritionist tomorrow and I'm so hopeful she has some advice.  My protein intake is great, liquids on point, even throwing in some raw veggies and berries to curb the sweet/carb craving.  Thoughts?
