How tall are you? I wore a size 12 when I was 150#, and a size 16 when I was 175#. I know they are just numbers, but I was curious.

I'm right at 5'9 maybe just a little less.

Aaaaa.. I'm 4 inches shorter so the sizes all make sense. Congrats on your amazing progress!

I know sizes and weight are crazy like that. Thanks :) I feel a lot healthier, if that makes sense. But in the mirror I still see myself as overweight....

I used to be a size 22 also I am now down yo 16 jeans and large top in 3 months was sleeved on 9/30/13 trying to get to size 10 myself congrats to u enjoy ur new body....... Any tips u have for us

You will definitely get there!! I wish I could say some fabulous words of wisdom, but it's all thanks to my fabulous sleeve!! I just listen to my body now. I try not to graze, and only eat when my little friend is truly hungry (which is never). I honestly wish I could say I hit the gym everyday but I don't want to lie. Now I do have a very active lifestyle and I have so much more energy now that I have begun my weight loss journey.

I'm a bit slower than you lot, sounds like, but I'm still on the right path downward, and comfortable with it all. I'm in (loose) 16 and large sweaters now, soon to drop to 14 in pants. I've lost 70 lbs since the beginning of July, and I still want to lose about 45 more. I suspect I'll reach goal right around 10 months out, maybe as much as a year. Hang in there, everyone!

        Have a great Wednesday too! Sorry you're hungry all the time, I'm pretty much the same..and I'm sick of eating the same food all the time.

      Well, tomorrow I go in for an impromptu hiatal hernia repair after ending up in the ER over the weekend because I couldn't get food down and water was moving at a trickle... I've been having these symptoms on and off for a few weeks but Sunday was the worst by far and came with chest pain and trouble breathing. The ER PA thinks it is just esophagitis and that the surgeon and radiologist are wrong. But the bariatric surgeon swears it is a hernia, possibly a sliding one based on my symptoms. So he fit me into his schedule this week to repair it! I hope he's right and this sorts it out. He's going to do a scope afterwards to be sure there is nothing wrong with the esophagus. Here's hoping it all goes well!!

      Having gall bladder surgery in a few days and I so hope the recovery is easier than the one from the modified DS! I could use a bit of luck/pep talk for a change. I'm starting to be able to walk around without experiencing dizziness, but it would be great if the random pain in my chest and abdomen would go away!!
