  1. Gold-Bringing Sexy Back-Loving My Sleeve-Running-Knee Supports

    So I just wanted to say that at 18 months I overate last night and got sick. Didn't even think it was that much but obviously my belly thought otherwise. Just goes to show that even when you think you got this thing down you just never know. LOL.
    Today at work my team got to go out to lunch. It was great. I decided to wear a skirt and I was just loving my new legs. I feel like Ariel when she got her new legs. LOL. I have always been insecure about having big calves. Even when I ...
  2. A Constant State of Flux

    By a show of hands (or a response below this post) how many of you out there in the Gastric Sleeve Community are like me in that you find yourself day in and day out stepping on the scale multiple times throughout the day, all with the hope of seeing some form of success as weight slowly drops off of our ever-changing bodies?

As a direct result, I had resigned myself to the fact that I may remain 6'1" and weigh 240 pounds for the rest of my life. After some serious contemplation I realized that resigning myself to my current weight is not enough. I want to reach my goal weight of 185 pounds (or somewhere close to it) by the end of the year. Armed with this new found determination, I decided to embark ...
  5. Bipolar Disorder and Weight Loss Surgery

    I have bipolar disorder. And while many of you may think that means I am quite simply insanity defined, the truth of the matter is this: I have a chemical imbalance that triggers emotional responses - sometimes at inopportune times. While my behavioral patterns attempt to lend themselves to sway me to make irrational decisions in my life, I fight hard everyday to do the right thing and to ensure that I am on track with who I chose to be in this life. In short, I do not let this disorder define me. ...
