    Hello, I saw your before and after pics and you look uh-mazing!!! I do want to ask you a personal question. How much boob weight did you lose? What bra did you begin/end with. My surgery is Nov. 25th and I can not wait. I am still wondering if I will lose some of my boobies? I want to, I have been top heavy all my life and I am just curious.

    Hey Rose...That is awsome about shopping my daughter is 15 too and I can hardly wait to shop with her.I tell you your postings and pics really got me motivated...i am so excited. Yes i was thinking to if i can lose weight on my own i would of LOL but i am on a liquid diet this week. I guess she said the milk of magnesia helps clear out the stomach ...i have to drink 2 cups the before surgery so sunday. Hope you dont mind i showed my husband and kids the pic of you before and after..they were like wow!!! you look great be proud women!!! You doing great!!! my 24 year old son said you look his age and good. : )
  10. Hey Angelique4kids, I hope you are enjoying your weekend. I went clothes shopping with my 15 year old daughter. I love it, haha! Anyway, most people on here talk about a 2 week liquid diet but my doctor doesn't require it. I asked him and his rely was that if we could lose weight on our own we wouldn't need the surgery. He did however want me to try to eat healthy for 3 months. He wanted me to substitute 1 meal with a protein shake. I did it once in a while, never really stuck to any eating plan. I used those 3 months to say good bye to all the food that after the surgery I would never be able to eat again. Let me put it this way, Most people lose a few pounds before the day of their surgery, I was 3 pounds heavier. The morning of the surgery I was 263!

    As far as the milk of magnesia, I have never heard of that. Did she say what it was for?

    Hey rose69 no she didn't she said 1 week liquid diet. Is that weird? I read on here everyone having weeks of diets and she didn't say much about it....and to stop everything right at midnite Sunday . No liquids just lil water for my blood pressure pills and milk of magnesia.

  15. It took me 10 months to get to where I am now. But I have to add that I did intense cardio and I also had a personal trainor. Who'da thought horizontal stripes wouldn't make me look fat!

Basic Information

About Rose69
Sleeved or not sleeved:
I have had a gastric sleeve.
I'm a 44 year old woman. I've been married for 23 years. I have 3 children, the oldest being 22 and the youngest 11. I was a fat child, lost all my excess weight by the age of 13. I managed to keep my weight off by watching what I was eating and exercising. I gained a lot of weight 11 years ago with my third pregnancy. Only this time I couldn't lose it. As each year passed I got heavier and heavier. I'm so glad I got the sleeve. I feel like I've gotten a second chance at life.

Here it is my sleeve friends, the before and after pictures you've been asking for.

For all of you who are struggling, at a plateau or wondering to yourselves "what have I done" (God knows I've said that many times in the beginning) it's all worth it. You can do it!

Eat right and get plenty of exercise, it will happen!
Best Wishes,
