    I have not logged on in a long time but I was very encouraged logging on and seeing your success. I hope all is well with and you are pushing through the holidays making good choices. It is hard. I cheat more now then I use to but plan to get back to the healthy stuff after the holidays. My lowest was 151...right now I'm 166. I would like to be 157...work!

    Hi Blackbry63,

    You're looking fabulous girl! I am still keeping my weight off after 2 1/2 years out but I have to constantly stay at it watching what I eat and exercising. I have hit plataeu at 140lbs so it seems like my body likes that weight. I posted my most current Before and After Pics. Keep up the good work and God bless

    Still the best choice I ever made!!

    Hi Blackbry63,
    I've been okay. I am 2 years out also. I haven't met my total goal weight yet but I am going to try my hardest to get there. I have been making crap food choices so I know what I have to do. I have found quite a few healthy foods that i love so I am going to stick to them. Thank you girl and keep up your hard work also.

    Hi Lady-2.5 years is a long time my goodness! Congrats to you, I'm doing ok, starting to have cravings more daily for sugar and giving in(dammit)! Lol, I think I've kinda stop losing but now sure, this is my 6 months my doctor says you may and may not lose for the entire year. Its cool with me, as I don't want to go any smaller, I've lost about 85 lbs so I need to start maintaining myself. I stop working out cause my hubby thought I would get smaller, he was very concern and I guess I was as well. You still look amazing, you're my hero now,2/12 year and still looking good. I run into folk all the time that tell me they gain back after two years, wow all that work, why? So, like you I'm concern as well, the holidays will be challenging. Wishing you the very best of holidays, thanks for the response. TTYL!

    Thank you, thank you, thank you! 10 days before my surgery. About how long after the surgery were you able to work out? I do not like walking just because my knee is bad, but I love Zumba or doing cardio to salsa music.

    Your before and after pictures are amazing! Congratulations to you on doing such a great job. You are an inspiration. My surgery is a little over 2 weeks away and I go through the nervousness of I'm excited to nervous to excited etc. It's now time for me to be serious about my pre op diet so I will start that tomorrow I've already cut out soda so that's a good start. Any advice that you have would be fantastic. Thanks

Sleeved or not sleeved:
I have had a gastric sleeve.
52 year old grandma and mother of 2. I have been fighting the obesity battle since my late 30s. I was approved in mid June 2013 and had sleeve surgery on July 2, 2013. I made a vow to be 50 fit and fabulous, this is just a part of that journey. I feel amazing now, my health issues appear to have dissipated. I wish I had done this a decade ago.
