    Hey Barb,

    Yes I have been out of commission for a while, but I am finally ready to show the world the before and after pics, I have lost a total of 64 pounds so far in 11 weeks, can you believe almost 3 months since I have had my surgery. Things are going real well. Getting ready to graduate from college in 3 weeks and feeling great! Yes Joe and I will stop by and see you this coming week, have to go to Charlottesville on Tuesday, so I may stop by then, what hours are you working?

  4. Barbp, You are going to love Dr.Bautista. Let me know when you are scheduled if you don't mind. I also work at St. Mary's, I have been there for 17 years. If I can help you with anything I am just a keyboard away.

Health assessment

by Barbp on 01-06-2015 at 06:17 PM
I went yesterday and had what my company calls a health assessment. It's kind of like a physical but not as indepth. Anyway, I am please to share my good news. All of my blood work came back great. They checked cholesterol levels, LDL, HDL, and triglycerides. Everything is in the normal range. They also do a body composition thing. Last year my body fat percentage was 54%, this year it is 21%. My Viseral fat is at 6%, which according to the test it should be under 9%, so far so good. Then comes

It has been a while since I have been on here. I just wanted to give an update on how things are going. As of December 24 I am 8 months out. I have lost about 124 pounds since starting on here.

9 weeks out

by Barbp on 06-26-2014 at 11:55 AM
Today I'm 9 weeks out from surgery and am very happy with my decision to get sleeved. At my highest weight I was 320lbs. That was just last year, February to be exact. At that point I once again decided to go on a diet. I did lose some weight but after talking to one of my co-workers about her surgery, I decided to have the surgery. I went to the information seminar weighing in at 304. That was last June. After going through the 6 month dr supervised diet that is required, I was down to 285. I had
