    I hope you are doing ok? I see you have just have surgery.. It might seem like a long time to wait but it will go quickly. Each stage is a new set of rules and phases hopefully leading us on to hopefully normality. Good luck with everything and keep in touch

    I saw your post where you said you had considered cancelling....don't!!! I felt the same way but the fear passed. Just keep reminding yourself of all the reasons you decided to do it in the first place and reach out to your support at home or here on the forum. If you need a surgery buddy, I'm here! Mine is this coming Wednesday. Sally

    I understand what you mean about this pre op being difficult. I am excited but very scared at the same time. The hospital called today and gave me my time. That made it real.

About sosoul2
Sleeved or not sleeved:
I have had a gastric sleeve.
Biography:
I am a 40 yr. old beautiful woman, however over the last past 5yrs. I have been considering wls, but you know people see you and say you don't need to do that you just need to exercise or you're pretty just the way you are. Well, I knew when I went to the Dr.'s office for that visit and that scale said 307 I knew reinforcements had to be brought in right away. You know how when you meet somebody and they say oooh you have such a pretty face. I guess that's all they see is my face. Lol, but this year my life changed when my father died on me from a massive heart attack. Devastated...and the ironic thing about it was my dad was not overweight he just wasn't healthy. My dad died June the 8th of this year. Well, I made up in my mind to do this for me and only me, because I have a 19yr. old in college and moving forward, and I always told him that I promise if God's will I want to be around for when he gets married and my grandbabies. Not only that but just to start living life again. No longer will I be afraid to step out because I'm ashame of what size I wear, or if people are staring at me because I'm just too big. I'm doing this to be liberated from the chains that bind me and it feels great. No longer will this Diva just go to stores for shoe shopping purposes only, trust sweethearts, I will be shopping for the outfits that go along with the shoes. Okay. Still being me but coming out of my Big Girl Suit.

A Year and a Day: I'll take it!

by sosoul2 on 07-23-2014 at 08:57 PM
Hello to all, Last Thursday I went to sent my Doc for my 1yr. weigh-in. Wait for it........195 pounds. Yeah Baaaaby! I'm in Onderland, I thank my surgeon so much for introducing me to the sleeve, bu it was all up to me on what I wanted to make of it. It hasn't been easy with the highs and lows the plateau's and all that but if I had to do it all over again I would. Hard work and perseverance really do pay off. I'm finally reaping the fruits of my labor. I'd like to lose maybe about 20 to 3 more

To Luv Sleeves old and new:

by sosoul2 on 05-20-2014 at 09:30 AM
Thank you for all the wonderful words of encouragement and responses. This journey is in no way a walk in the park or some type of magic cure. "IT TAKES HARD WORK." It works on your mental and physical capacity to the fullest. It is you who must take the reigns and really be committed. It has its highs and its lows but the payoff is so way worth the sacrifice if you are willing. Don't forget that you got this way for some reason or another and you found that you could no longer do it by

WTF is the difference?

by sosoul2 on 05-19-2014 at 02:37 PM
I'd like to say that when we as overweight people start losing weight people treat you differently! WTF! I'm still the same person. I'm still attractive did I get more attractive because I lost weight. I"m still the same person who likes to crack jokes, make people laugh, and still have the same dry sense of humor. I mean was I some type of alien before or something. Did I transform other than losing weight? Was I the hunchback or something? Come on people we're still human. We're just overweight

5 pounds to Onederland and I can see the finishline! I'm so happy fellow luvsleevers. It's been quite sometime since I've posted actually it was about 2 mths and 20 pounds ago. My total weightloss to date has been 102 pounds. I am so overjoyed with this gift that I have been given. I have actually started reliving life again and I feels wonderful. I have 43 pounds to go before I reach my goal. My one year anniversary date will be July 15th not worried about if I hit it or not, but I do know that
