    That's great information. I do log everything on my Baritastic App. I feel like I'm doing everything perfectly so I expect to lose quicker. I need to be more patient. I also need to workout more. I think being more active will help. Thanks for the feedback.

    Hi Christie13, thank you for your "welcome". I'm in awe of your progress and stand at the very beginning of my new life. I have made the decision, I have Dr Almanza assigned to me and am waiting on tender hooks to see if I will be accepted as a candidate. Best of luck to you on your journey!

    Weight loss is slowing down but at leastt it's going down and not up. I've lost19.3 pounds in 4 weeks. Trying not to get bored with eating the same thing all the time. Any meal plans you would like to share would be appreciated. Thanks for checking in.

    Thank you sweetie, I think I'll be healed this time. The surgeon said I had two leaks originally and one was healed all the way and the other was 90%, so I think I'll be healed all the way on the 8th.

20 weeks-Car Accident-51/71-Life is Grand!

by Christie13 on 03-23-2017 at 07:18 PM
So I am 20 weeks out today. I can't believe it! I swear when I was going through the insurance process and waiting for approval the time was sooo slow. Now it is flying by and I am loving life! I have lost 51 lbs post op and 71 lbs total. I really did not think the sleeve would work this well for me. I was skeptical because so many things have failed over a years. It sounded too good to be true. Turns out....the sleeve and me are a good fit!

So I was on my way home from work

Squatty Potty-TMI-Mother in Law-Rash

by Christie13 on 03-19-2017 at 09:18 PM
So some of you may be like me and have poop issues since being sleeved. I take a daily stool softener but get constipated still. And when I do go, I have a hard time. LOL. I used to have a stool that I used for years that was a stool from when I was a child. It was perfect. It made going so comfortable. Over the years of travelling the world it somehow got lost form one location to the next. Anyways, a while back they on Shark Tank they had a Squatty Potty. It is supposed to put you in

Confession Time: Why I weigh myslef every day

by Christie13 on 03-18-2017 at 08:57 PM
I weigh myself every day. Actually every morning and every night. If I go in the bathroom then I will weigh myself. I like to see exactly what my body is doing. I feel it definitely keeps me on track. I know it is also going to be beneficial down the road when I am in the maintenance phase. Because as soon as I see myself regaining I will be able to put a stop to it before it gets out of control.
I have seen so many sleevers come back desperate for help when they have gained 30+ pounds.

19 weeks-Who's that girl?-Cloud 9

by Christie13 on 03-16-2017 at 08:10 PM
19 weeks. Sometimes it astonishes me when I think about what I looked like just 19 weeks ago. I was puffy and bloated and miserable. I couldn't see my feet. My thighs were very large and caused so much friction they could start a fire. Shopping was no fun...everything looked like crap on me and did not fit right. I hated being in pictures and tried to avoid them at all costs. I ate way more than my husband and was always hungry. The most humiliating part is that at 4'11" I weighed more

Work Health Assessment-Rocking My Sleeve-Healthy and Loving it!!

by Christie13 on 03-14-2017 at 10:07 PM
Had my health assessment at work today. I rocked those numbers!!! The only number that I was not ideal/optimal was my BMI...which is still at 27. But I am soooo close to not being overweight anymore. It was a fasting blood draw. Unfortunately my appointment was scheduled for 1155 since it is at work and we have a lot of employees. I could not get anything earlier. I can tell you that with being thinner and having a little belly made the fasting for so long difficult. I was starving. When
