Well I am at 5 1/2 months out and doing great!! No problems so far, no vomiting so far!! scale is moving at the pace I wanted so as to not have too much loose skin! I have a little bit but I am old - lol - well not really old, just turned 51 Thursday!! Feeling so fabulous, almost like I am 35 again!! I would do this again and have no regrets other than of course I didn't do it 10 years ago!

My favorite part of my whole journey is that I have kicked all diabetes and blood pressure meds and no longer use a sleep apnea device!! My diabetes A1C has been 5.7% the last two checks!!

I am not a work out freak but I do exercise everyday by walking. Sometimes I am frolicking (lol) in the ocean or swimming in a pool or even roller skating!!

I thank God everyday for this procedure!!

I know I don't post much on here anymore, occasionally I stop in, but that doesn't mean I don't care, just busy with life! If you have questions feel free to personal message me and I will chat with you!

God bless you all and check out my before and after album in my profile under Gallery if you want!!

      Hey October Surgery friends...how are you doing? I've lost 15 lbs since surgery on 18th.42 lbs overall. Wearing clothes that feel great. Had a bout of cold and stomach flu and still having some nausea off and on after that but getting better, I think. 
      Seems like I fill up and have minor pain quicker when I eat hot foods rather than cold. Anyone else notice this?
      Still sooo glad I did this.

        I had surgery Oct 29. Lost 35#. Plateau now. But seeing what clothes fit now is encouraging.

        My surgery was 10/19. #40 down since surgeon pre op visit. Getting close to end of soft foods. I think only issue going to regular foods is portion size. So far trying a new food every day. With no issues.
