  1. 2016!

    In havenít posted in a long time, I enjoyed reading everyoneís post. Iím 3 years 2 months post op. Iím still maintaining my weight. This was the best decision Iíve ever made!!! If youíre struggling with saying yes to the sleeve, donít second guess yourself, just do it.

But all in all I am doing good.

I was 243 and this process has been great but very slow! It has taken 11 months to get to 199! I just broke 200 a couple days ago. Some things that stand out immediately is chocolate makes me sick!
