    Well hello, Joanne... My name is Diane...
    I did get the job, hence; I haven't been on this site as often because learning a new job at my age isn't easy...lol... I'm doing great and loving working on the bariatric surgery department. I get to work with the patients before and after surgery, and am the assistant to the coordinator of the program who also had weight loss surgery 13 years ago. We're all about doing the right thing for the patients. I kind of grew tired of this site, it's a bunch of people who seem to like to whine or ask questions they should know the answers to; if you know what I mean. It will be 5 years for me in July and I'm still loving life. Keeping the weight off is a challenge sometimes, but not one I can't meet. Losing the extra 5-6 lbs. is much more manageable than losing that first 145 lbs Now that I'm older, I'm not liking the way my sags are getting saggier and saggier (is that a word) and the boobs are nothing to look at...if you could even pick them off the floor...lol...

    How is life for you? Hope you're keeping active and enjoying life because that's what it's all about! I think about the veterans and wonder how they're doing, but I guess they got busy with life and feel they don't need the support this site provides. I feel I can't get enough support and keep working my own program. Thanks for reaching out and please keep in touch
    Warm Regards,
    Diane

    Almost 2 years out and no craving for Soda's in 2 years no desire, pasta very limited, if I do 2 bites and I am full full full. I use to be a soda and pasta haulic..
  5. I'm so glad that the 5 day pouch reset worked for you. I am scheduled for a mommy makeover in March and need to get a handle on myself and lose about 10 pounds. You look wonderful by the way.

    Thank you Sis. I did see that post about the 5 day restart and I am going to purchase it. I need it but I still Praise God for 60 lbs and now 50 lbs off, but I do want my other 50 off this year and I know by December 2016 it will be done.
  8. Hello I was sleeved 1-2014 at 225# by 1-2015 I was at 160# today I'm at 175#. Can't seem to get back to eating right. I'm terrified I'll gain it all back. What help can you give to suggest getting back control? Did you fluctuate much over the years?
    I know you said your not on here much anymore. But I hope you see this and have some advice for me. Thank you.
  9. Your welcome and I am sure you will do great. If you need anu info feel free. JoanneI

    Hello dear, I was wondering if after 3 1/2 years post op if you still feel the sleeve like at the early stage post op?? Do you eat small portion and satisfied with that?? Eat too fast and noticed you did wrong etc,.. I'll be sleeve soon and wonder what's ahead! I must say you look great!!! Congrats!

    was there a lot of pain for you? Do you think older ppl take longer to heal? Did you have an injection that felt like gasoline burning you?

    I just wanted to thank you for answering my Blog. I am 65 and I had the lap band for 7 years. Ugh..You have inspired me to go ahead with sleeve if I am approved, You look wonderful. I am scared because I feel like I will fail. I have battling my weight for most of my life. Thanks for your support.
  14. I think I will check in once in a while and if I come across someone that I feel is in the right head space and could use a bit of support I will send a response. Otherwise it just does not feel the same. Too bad for the new serious folk.
    I am moving north and will be close to Sault Ste Marie Canada. I see you are in Michigan. Not too far away. Cheers \Joanne

    Thanks Joanne. I feel the same way, it seems like so many are rushing into the surgery route unprepared or unrealistic on expectations. I don't post much. The only reason I am now is a result of my down time while I am healing from my recent procedures. Congrats on your success.

PUT GRAPES IN THE FREEZER, WHEN YOU TAKE THEM OUT AND USE AS A FRUIT THEY HAVE A LOVELY SWEET TASTE. I USE THEM AS ICE CUBES IN MY WATER.

WITH WARMER WEATHER COMING JUST WANTED TO SHARE THIS EASY TREAT.

by thenewmetoday on 04-17-2016 at 11:06 AM
WHERE DID THE TIME GO? i CANNOT EXPRESS FULLY HOW THE SLEEVE HAS HELPED ME IMPROVE MY LIFE.

I WAS 70 WHEN I HAD SURG. I AM NOW 74 AND MY HEALTH HAS NEVER BEEN BETTER. 4 YEARS AGO I WAS DIABETIC, HYPERTENSIVE, AND VERY DEPRESSED. MY KNEE WAS SO BAD I WAS IN CONSTANT PAIN, USING A CANE AND COULD NOT WALK VERY FAR. TODAY I CAN GO OUT IN THE BUSH AND HIKE AS FAR AND AS LONG AS I WANT. I AM DRUG FREE. THE FREEDOM IS AWESOME.

I KEEP MY KITCHEN HEALTHY AND DO NOT KEEP
