Thanks everybody. This has been a remarkable journey so far and I look forward to where it still takes me! I feel so much better and am so much more active. I am also off of a few pills which is great as well. Keep it up all my fellow sleevers. We've got this!

And nothing beats being slimmer in a Warm Season! Always felt like they were playing " Baby Elephant Walk" as I tried passing by. I SHALL EVEN WEAR SHORTS THIS SUMMER! Maybe Lulu Hogg instead of Daisy Dukes, but my day shall still COME!

And PS , turned on the Weather Channel, woman on there talking about barbecuing. Her last name is Porshe- Smith, honey --she is still Big as A Buick. But I am feeling benevolent enough to give her the benefit of the doubt, maybe SHE is fighting HER OWN BATTLE TOO! 😜🍳😝

Had my 6 month post-op appointment on 6/13. I’m down 72 pounds and in ONEDERLAND!! Off my BP and cholesterol meds. Still would like to lose another 35-40 pounds but the loss rate has definitely slowed. About a pound a week for the last few weeks. I can eat more, but trying to stay around 1000 calories a day. I get hungry but can also go long periods of time without eating. Overall I’m really pleased with the surgery. It has made the process easier. Hopefully I can keep it off once I reach goal.

Hey everyone!

I am so happy to see everyone's progress!! it's amazing. While I have been successful, I have had to battle through some severe stomach issues. I have been in and out of the hospital last month and this month due to stomach issues that I will know more about after my colonoscopy. This setback has taken an already strict lifestyle and added even more nuance to it. Right now we don't know if it's just severe diverticulitis, Crohn's disease or what. I had very substantial hemorrhaging of the colon, but thankfully they were able to stop it. So, right now is a wait and see and be careful type of thing. I have made further adjustments to my lifestyle to eliminate nuts, vegetables and fruit with seeds, I can't handle creams, dairy, etc. So.... it's interesting right now.

As far as the sleeve is concerned, I couldn't be happier! Down 81 pounds. i do have the dreaded loose skin, but *shrugs* I will give myself more time to tighten as best as I can and then from there I may get a little help with what's left, eventually not in the near future. It hasn't even been a year and I am not finished losing yet. I hope everyone is taking time to enjoy the journey. It's a wild one!

Oh, 😒 who has had people say, "You really don't need to lose any more weight." 🙄 I have had countless people tell me you are going to start looking like you're sick if you lose another pound. These are people who aren't aware that I had surgery done. I also had someone tell me that my colon issues my be due to all of this healthy eating that I am doing and I may just need to eat regular since I have already lost so much weight. 🙄 smh.

      I can now buy clothes in normal stores again. Admittedly the first time when I started trying on clothes, I really had to keep myself calm. Normally trying on clothes causes me to become SOOO depressed that it take weeks just to get over it. Now, I have to keep myself from not wanting to buy everything!

      Hi, congrats on your surgery!  Saw you went to Dr. Pleatman.  I've been between doing the Lap Band and sleeve.  I was suppose to have a consultation with Dr. Pleatman this month.  So far great experience with his office coordinator Carrie (sp?).   Feeling really scared and nervous about getting the sleeve.  If you can share...how was your experience with Dr. Pleatman's office and the surgery?   Thanks!

      I'm not new, I was an active Lapbander from:

      February 6, 2017 Here I am on October 4, 2019 thinking back over my Lapband journey and how I thought I would be banded for life. Unfortunately, I have been sick for some time, and am on medications; and well my weight has constantly slowly increased. I was 225 pounds when I had my Lapband surgery on Dec. 17, 2010. At least my weight hasn't reached 210. I have been fluctuating between 202-206. For that, I'm grateful. I'm just excited to be able to have another tool to assist me with my weight loss journey. I'm not looking forward to the liquid stage, however.
