glad you posted.. my hubby and I both have had the sleeve in dec a week apart.. we have both lost 82lbs..and I still have 60 to go to hit my goal wt.. and he has like 25. But we have wondered about long term success stories..so Im glad to see it works.. we work very hard at this and we know its going to be life long..and we are ready for that.. following all the drs rules and regulations..and go to all our follow ups and labs.. its very nice to see someone who has succeeded long term.. ive heard so many storys of those who feel out and have gained the wt back.. we wont let that happen to us.. we traveled this road so far and are not going to turn back.. best of luck to you :)

M2G!

My sleeve sister... Where has the time gone! It's been a long road travelled, and so glad that we've been together throughout this journey!

You have made such a dramatic difference to, not only yourself, but your whole family! You simply look amazing and you're an inspiration to me and many others here.

Thank you for your honest post; this isn't about a quick fix or the easy way out... It is about changing how we deal with food for life!

Congratulations on taking control...

Hugs from across the pond x

Ha ha both the sassy pose and the bigger smile are due to my 10 year old daughter taking the picture. "C'mon mom, give me more sass!!!" which in turn made me smile.

But truly I didn't look very happy in the before did I? lol

WAY TO GO!!!!! BOTH OF YOU!! CONGRATS!!! not an easy task at all.

Thanks Diane...The farther out you get from surgery, the harder it is to stay the course. But we both knew this would take a life long commitment and we are in it for the long haul. The goal = being healthier. :)

Congrats to you both. WOW you guys are brave being a week apart and that is awesome that you guys have come so far in such a short amount of time. We are each other's biggest supporters, can't imagine doing this any other way!

How do you feel your sleeve is performing now that you are 2 and a half years out? Does it feel like you can eat like you did before your surgery, or do you still have some restriction?

      How's everyone doing? I'm still fighting insurance company over plastics.
      Many changes at work are coming up. It's very stressful but there are also some opportunities involved, both in regards to personal development and promotion.

        I didn't think insurance was even possible for plastics? I figured it would all be out of pocket?
