    That's awesome that you're from AZ! What part? It sounds like you aren't too sure if you're doing ok... are you in pain? Just trying to figure out what is good and expected rather than not normal? I think that part is normal. You definitely need to be taking care of you right now!!! Please stay in touch when you have time. I know it's very soon after surgery for you, so I wish you all the best as time progresses!! Congratulations on your new lifestyle and exciting journey!
  5. Thank you for your well wishes! Very kind of you!

About Saraveronica

Basic Information

About Saraveronica
Sleeved or not sleeved:
I have had a gastric sleeve.
I was always overweight as a kid, teen, young adult. At 29, I had a gastric band, lost 90+ lbs! depending on the the day. Any way, after 2 1/2 years, I had the band removed, due to slippage. Did a great job maintaining until I turned about 36. Now I have gained 35 lbs and it might as well be the whole 90, because it feels like it.
I am now ready to lose the weight I gained, plus some more.
I am Arizona girl, been in India with my husband and baby for a while now.
Had surgery in Singapore.
Chennai, India
Stay at home mom, registered nurse

I really am doing great! I have lost 40 lbs, back down to my lowest weight that I have ever been in my adult life. I feel fantastic, like there is nothing that i cant do. I have learned how to use my tool and i love it. In addition to my workouts, I am running on the treadmill 3 to 4 days a week and I am learning to like it!

11 to 15 lbs to go!

My dear husband tossed me a pair of his skinny large cotton pants with a drawstring, a few months ago and said, "hey, these dont fit me, maybe you can wear them." well, 35 lbs ago, I couldnt get them up past my knees, but today, they are comfy and cute!

I tossed out 4 pairs of pants today that were too big and brought down from the top of my closet two pairs of size 12s. i wanna say skinny 12s because i have other 12s that have fit for a few weeks now.

I am so dang happy. It is 11 1/2 weeks since having my stomach sleeved, and i have lost 34 1/2 lbs!

I am 5 lbs away from my lowest lapband weight. sigh

I spent an hour, and stuff just poured out. it helped. i plan to do this as often as i can until i get all of my junk purged. Because i will never be healthy until i can heal my heart and

This is it.

Just a quick recap: was obese my whole life, in 2004, at age 29, I had lapband surgery... lost 90 lbs in 15 months, felt amazing, was normal for the first time... back then, i followed celebrities Ann Wilson ( had lapband) Carnie Wilson ( had gastric bypass).. in 2006, I had to have my band removed due to slippage. i kept all of my weight off until Jan 2008, when over 2 years, i gained 35 lbs. i could not lose the weight by myself, So fast forward to Nov 8, 2013, I have sleeve surgery.
