I'm an August sleever. The 23rd by Dr. Kelly in Mexico. You can keep me informed of what to expect since you're first! 100lbs would be fantastic. 120 to 130 would be a dream come true!

Finally some August people ! I'm going to Dr.Almanza in Mexico, my surgery is on the 14th..I'm so excited it's all I think about...I am 303 last time I checked..and 5'9 and a size 22. I hope to get down to 150.. I have to do a 1 week liquid diet. I'm making changes to how I eat from now. So it's not so hard in the future. I read these forums far too much lol...and really am scared that I will have a stall like some people mention. I just plan to stick to the plan religiously and not cheat. I'm going to start waking and riding my bike.

I'm an August sleeker,

I chose my dr. Because he was at a center of excellence and I liked their (the office's) approach. I went to 4 different WLS seminars and checked out all 4 centers. I went with gbmc in Baltimore. In fact I'm there in the waiting room right now.

Hi!! I am set for Aug. 6th and can't wait. I am happy to have found you all on here. I am 39 years old and need to lose 140 pounds to be healthy. I haven't always had a weight problem, it started when I was 22 or so. Used to be college athlete and work out daily and now I can't barely walk a block without pain in knee, feet, back. I have to do this to be able to exercise and get my life back. I am happy for all of us to be on this journey together.

Yes future, thank you! Keep me up to date with progress. Are you trying to lose weight before surgery? I just feel as if I will get no where until I am sleeved.

I'm 41. 5'4". 260lbs. Large bones for being short. I too was not this way until the age of almost 30. Then my thyroid got walked out. If I can loose 100 great. If I can lose 120 to 130, even better!

5'4" must be the magic height for August. I'm also 5'4" and 240 lbs.

MGM, I also started my weight issues when my thyroid went out of wack. Then baby, stress and loving food kept the weight building. I am 5'6 and am hovering 300 pounds. Oh my gosh, just saying that number scares me. It is so weird, up until this past year when I looked in the mirror I saw myself as how I used to look. Not until I saw pictures of myself 8 months ago did it all hit me. I did not recognize the person in the picture. I really could not believe it as me. Anyway, I am so ready, little nervous but ready!

      2019 - A New Year and a New Start on life!!!!
      On 3/14 - I went into the Hospital at 6am to have my surgery <the sleeve>.   My weigh at that time was 278 pounds.   On this day I was in and out of it I don't remember a whole lot I just remember being in a lot of pain.
      On 3/15 - They made me get up and walk a few times in the middle of the night and walk doctor came in and I was able to be discharged if I was eating and doing everything on his little checklist.   I went home at 6pm.  All I remember was going home crawling into bed and taking more pain medicine it felt like I got hit in the stomach about 50 times.
      On 3/16 - I know they say that walking is the best thing you can do after having surgeries but I was not feeling it at all every time I sat up, I got dizzy needless to say this day I didn't get much walking in and the smell of food just made me gag.  I couldn't even take the pain medicine that was in liquid form.  I stayed in bed for most of the day.
      On 3/17 - I did a lot better on this day I was actually able to eat a little bit of Jell-O and drink a little bit of broth.    Still can't seem to take that pain medicine without wanting to gag.   I definitely have been able to keep down water and even had my nephew take a little bit of Crystal Light and some ice chips and mix it in a bullet to make like a slushie.  That was yummy!
      This brings me to today 3/18 - I have been trying to drink protein water to get protein in my body. I was able to eat some Jell-O today and keep it down. I also was able to sit up for 5 hours and was able to be sociable again.  I was also finally able to take some pain medicine again without gagging <Thank God>.     Pain is slowly going away.   I have my first one week doctor visit on 3/20 so we will see how that goes

      I'm a finisher of a half marathon! Completed yesterday on a beautiful day to run. My hips and Knee are pretty angry with me today, but we finished at 2:19. Not bad for my first half. I was able to run with my wife, so that made it much nicer and easier to get through
