    Ohhh boy, I'm having a time. I've gained close to 25 (right now), but in May I was only up about 10 (that was after I lost 15 and was up 25 at another time!) I can take it off when I'm trying, but I'm just not, most of the time. That's horrible right? Ugh. My clothes still fit, but just tighter than I'd like, content with being a medium I suppose, but I just feel better when I'm a medium at a certain weight, haha. I feel like I've figured out if I can't eat as much as I want to just wait a bit for some food to digest and then eat more, and that sucks. I've figured out the "loop hole". But I still think, 25lbs isn't 115lbs so I'm ok with that.

    Congrats on your progress. How are you coming along. At 2.5 years out, I'm finding the hardest part is maintaining but I continue to work hard. I can now eat more at least a small saucer of food. I have to strive to make good choices. I've worked too hard to get to this point. Just sending you words of encouragement. I tell myself that eating the junk food does not make me nearly as happy as being healthy feels.

    Good luck on your journey looks like you have worked real hard too. Great results in your before and after pic. Best of luck on your success

    I am thinking about having the gastric sleeve surgery but I am having some worries. Do you have alot of excess skin? Do you miss eating all the tasty foods? Was it hard to change?

Day 4 has been much better!

by bessie.marshall on 08-09-2013 at 07:52 PM
So yesterday I was a tad worried. I had a slight temp, HR was elevated, felt like poo. I was dehydrated. No more temp. Today I went and bought some Isopure (which I don't really like) but have been able to get down thank you Jesus. I have walked at the mall and around the block. My bowels have moved 2xs. I have sufficient energy and am starting to get a little hungry. Start pureed on Monday. Im happy and glad so far so good.

for those waiting to be sleeved

For all of you waiting to get sleeved. Please don't be nervous. It really isn't that bad of a procedure. My experience the day of surgery was rough, but I'm super sensitive to the anethesia. My neighbor had her surgery 45 min before me and you would have never known she had surgery. I'm 2 days out and feel ok, just a little gassy yet. I also had a hiatal hernia so it is a tad more painful, but nothing anyone cannot stand. Honestly 1 day of uncomfortable-ness will be well worth it!

Is it weird that currently I'm not nervous about my surgery which is approx. 1 mth away? I was in the very beginning, but now after almost 8mths of preparation I just feel ready.
