New Before and After Photo

Rate this Entry
As I posted a couple of weeks ago, I hit Goal in less than one year. I started my weight loss journey at 475 lbs and now weigh in at less than 250 lbs (results are not typical).

I wanted to show you the new ME! If you havent' been sleeved, this works but it is only a tool. I have a simple way for you to be successful
a) you want to change
b) Follow your doctors orders to the T
c) get outside support from others who have gone through this
d) Follow your Doctors orders to the T

yes I know I repeated one twice, but I have watched too many fellow sleevers do things they aren't suppose to be doing.

    Hey Jim:
    You're a prolific writer. I'm so glad I took the time to read your awesome post. I read somewhere that if you get your head on straight, your ass will follow. It's so true. People like us don't have a body image. At times at 335 lbs, I felt skinny. How could that be. It's only now that I'm addressing the problem that I am beginning to understand the depth of the overeating situation. I'm one week post-surgery. I always knew that I kind of had a incestuous relationship with food. I couldn't wait for people to leave, so I could eat in private. Everything centered around food. Wanna go shopping? Ok, where will we go for lunch? I should mention I was also diagnosed with diabetes. A week before I started the pre-op diet, I called two friends over. I had taken all the stuff out of the cabinets. I had cake mixes galore. Every color of cake frosting, bread mixes, potato chips, taco chips, dip mixes, cookie stuff, etc. No one would've ever guessed I also had diabetes. I must say food was my friend - always at the top of my list of priorities. Now, I'm my priority & it feels strange. Who will I be when I've gotten to goal? The answers will come. I was very thin once for about 3 hours, then started the quick road back up the scales. I hadn't changed anything about how I felt about myself. Now, 62 & happily married, I believe I can grow up finally & let go of the food & begin to know & understand myself better - which is exactly what you're doing. We're all warriors fighting for our right to be happy, joyous & free. We're gonna make it. Best wishes & stay in touch. Awesome job Jim.
    Best, Roberta
