  1. I apologize for any messages I haven't responded to. I haven't checked this in a very, very long time. I wish everyone the best that has had or is going to be having the sleeve. Almost 6 years later it is still the best decision of my life.

    I live in Kinsley and am scheduled for a lapband to sleeve revision in late September, 2017. Have you continued to have solid success and results with your sleeve?

    I've had the lapband for a little over 10 years and just recently started having problems and even put a little weight back on. Is there any type of support group in the area you are aware of?

    Hello, I'm still not quite sure how all this works for I am just getting started. The Dr. I was assigned to is Dr. Almanza and I just was wondering if you can tell me what to expect from your experience. How much have you lost? Did you have any problems after having the procedure done? How soon were you able to get back to your normal routine? What changes in your diet is different? Sorry If im asking too many questions...Thanks in advance..Keri

One year post-op today...

by CountryGirl72 on 12-04-2014 at 02:37 PM

One year ago today I made the lifetime decision to change my life. I couldn't be happier with my decision.
One year ago today I was at SW: 213 size 18 clothes and full of shame within myself. I am now at 113 clothing size 0/1 and couldn't be happier or healthier. I'm 5' 3/4" tall.

No longer obese, no longer have high cholesterol, or high blood pressure, etc... Healthy feels great!


Confidence... Confidence has allowed me the courage to

11 months post-op tomorrow :)

by CountryGirl72 on 11-03-2014 at 08:52 PM
I have zero and I mean zero complaints or regrets about my amazing sleeve. However... I hope the day comes when I can eat more than two chicken wings!!! I was told that in about a years time my stomach should be at the point of my max food capacity and know what a "meal" will be for me. Well... Tomorrow is month 11 and TWO chicken wings... Really? I'm gonna have to eat multiple times a day to maintain my weight so I don't keep losing. I seriously for real do NOT wanna lose any more pounds

So we went on our first vacation since surgery...

by CountryGirl72 on 08-19-2014 at 03:09 PM
We went on vacation August 4th - 12th and I didn't plan a single thing. Didn't plan what to eat, where to eat, etc... I decided that I had this surgery so I wouldn't have to worry about that. I ate whatever I wanted (I can still only eat a very small amount) and I actually LOST 4 1/2 lbs while on vacation!!! Now that's my kind of vacation!!!

We go on a 2 1/2 week vacation beginning on Sept. 19th... We shall see what happens because I am not goin to be a slave to watching what I

Surprise menstral cycles...

by CountryGirl72 on 08-13-2014 at 03:29 PM
Ok... So... I recall bein so happy when I was able to say that I still was NOT having periods (TMI) like so many others out there had started. Well... I can no longer say I got to skip that part. All my life I have had weird cycles, I'd be lucky to have one or two a year. I haven't had a period in over 5 years and that one was brought on by my doctors orders with medicine because he was concerned of hemorrhaging so I took the meds. That's the only way I had them for many, many years!!! Well... I

Week 29... Just over 6 1/2 months post-op

by CountryGirl72 on 06-25-2014 at 05:49 PM
So today is week 29 since surgery. Doing wonderful!!! I'm down to 128 as of this morning and wearing size 3 clothes. I have 18 more lbs to goal. I've lost a total of 85 lbs to date!

Thoughts:
I can see that I am no longer "fat"... But... I look at me and at times still see me 85 lbs ago, to a point.
I pick up these little bitty clothes and think they don't look any smaller than what I was originally wearing, unless I put them side by side.
I sit
