Thanks M2G, that is really sweet that you remembered that he travels a lot. He has been gone a lot up until now, but it should slow down and he is taking 3 weeks off at Christmas.

Like I said, I have been far from perfect, but my body seems to really like being the weight I am and what I am doing is working, so I will take it. Could I be another 5 or 10 lbs lighter, sure. But I decided it is not worth beating myself up over. I picked my goal thinking I would never get to it, and when I reached it, I almost couldn't believe it. Now I am working on just being happy at my goal instead of always thinking its not good enough. Not easy that is for sure! Our brains are the biggest battle in this journey!

Oh glad he gets to take 3 weeks off at Christmas, you and the kids are really going to LOVE that! YAY!

Yes, yes, yes, I see so much of that chatter that where we are isn't "good enough" there is so much chasing of a number, a pant size, etc. which is all fine and good and I get that I really do, but just being happy with how much you have accomplished is a great feeling. Good for you!

Congratulations on your success, and being at goal at three years. What an accomplishment. You sure look great, and your story helps people like me who feel like we are never going to get "all the way" there think that maybe, just maybe, I can do it, too. Thanks for sharing!

      Hey everyone!  It has been a while since I was on here.  I had a lap-band placed in 2014 but now I would like it revised to a gastric sleeve.  There are no drs here in Tallahassee (Florida) that do that and I need to go the self-pay route (my insurance will not cover it!)  Any recommendations on nearby doctors that do self-pay revision surgeries?

      Going in on Tuesday. Things are arranged (need to order a cab to the station because it's too early for a bus going there) and I'm getting more nervous by the hour.

      I feel like I've finally gotten past the biggest hurdle. Surgery date is September 6th, the day after Labor Day, and yesterday I got my insurance approval letter. I've followed everything they've told me to do, and I've even lost 30 lbs on my own since hubby had to change his diet for diabetes. No worries now about having to do 4 weeks of the liver shrinking diet instead of 2. On my initial visit, if I had gained just 5lbs I would have had to do 4 weeks. It's getting closer. Just 2 more months to wait.

        Although the prep work took energy, I found the biggest hurdle was post-operative. The first 48 hrs were extremely uncomfortable. I did an overnight and trying to down the liquids, Tylenol, and especially the barium was rough. Thankfully though, I got away with only having to have 1 belly injection after surgery. Needless are not my thing.
