August Sleevers?! Where Ya's At?



Recommended Posts

Hi all ! I'm being sleeved August 8th, 2012 by Dr Morris Washington in Myrtle Beach SC. Is there any other august sleevers on here?

I'm 27 (almost) ---about 100-130 to lose.

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!

      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.

        You got this!! When I had the sleeve I cried every day during the liquid phase, It was during the super-bowl! I was sooo hungry I sucked on a piece of pork rind. LOL
