I’m 58 and I had Gastric sleeve August 31 and I’ve lost 64 lbs. I feel great!!!
Congratulations! That is just awesome. I am looking forward to losing this weight. Had gastric bypass on December 10th. I am starting to see and feel some changes.

I'm turning 60 this year and am having bypass in February 2019. The turning point for me was when my primary care doctor told me I likely wouldn't live to see 75 if I didn't do something drastic to get healthy.

And you now officially had your " Come to Jesus" moment. I was told the same thing, worse when you consider I'm 73. But 4 months ago this Saturday I had my own Winter Wednesday and received an RnY , and my recovery has not been picture- perfect, but it is what it is and I'm still going to gain a total ✌ victory, no matter how long it takes.Don't know if my Weight Road will smooth out soon, but I also would never go back where I started. A wise thought to share:
When life gives you a hundred reasons to break down and cry, show life you have a thousand reasons to smile and laugh. Remain strong!
