I have lost 100 lbs.
I am 8 months post op sleeve.
I am so glad I made this decision.
No more meds.!!!!!!
People tell me I need to stop losing weight.
I tell them they don't know me and my struggle with weight and my health.
My health is better than ever before.
Knees feel Great!!
I have reached my goal!!!!
I am now 120 lbs.
Started at 223 lbs.
5' 2"
People say I look like I weigh 110 lbs.
These are people that only knew me for 10 yrs. Met me when I was bigger.

Awesome. I hope I reach my goal by the spring. Just 40 to go. Was the last bit harder to lose. I've slowed down a bit now.

I felt the same way. If I'd have known just losing weight would fix 90% of my health problems I would have done it years ago. No more meds, my anxiety and depression are better, no more blood pressure or cholesterol meds, I'm off everything. I wasted a lot of years I wish I could get back with my kids. But my future grandkids are gonna have an active, fit, granny.

That's what I want no more meds,I want energy,and to be able to get up and do things I've never done I'm 53 and I wish I would of done it long ago,its sad when you can't barely shower or do much of anything,I'm so concerned if I'm gonna lose these last 17 pounds to get the surgery,cause that's due to my insurance,I mean if I could lose weight I wouldn't need the surgery is how I figure it.

Congratulations!! I was just sleeved last week and seeing stories like yours and others are helping me get through this liquid phase. People don’t realize what a tough choice this is, and how it’s definitely not the easy way out. Great work! You should be really proud of yourself!
