Sleeved or not sleeved:
I have had a gastric sleeve.
Biography:
I first started this journey in 2009. I decided I wanted to have a lap band. I went to see a surgeon who discouraged me from getting the lap band. We discussed the bypass and he told me he really didn't think that was for me either. He told me about this amazing new surgery, the sleeve. The only problem was that it was still considered experimental so insurance companies didn't cover it. Oh well. My hopes were dashed. I quit trying. As far as BMI went, I didn't qualify anyway so I felt pretty bad. I was able to lose down to 200 and maintained that for a few years. Then, about a year and a half ago, the scale started creeping up again. I gained 30lbs. I felt hopeless. In my mind it was, "Here we go again. The yo-yo I've been on my whole life". I felt like there was nothing I could do about it. I've tried every diet, every diet pill, I am just going to be fat forever. Then something happened. I met a woman and kept hearing people compliment her on how great she looked. I asked her if she'd lost a lot of weight or something and she said yes, 125 lbs, and told me she'd had the sleeve. WHAT??? Her insurance covered it. DOUBLE WHAT???? So, I immediately called my insurance company and sure enough, it was covered. They told me what the requirements were and I fell short by about 15lbs so I gained it on purpose so I could FINALLY do this and be DONE with the yo yo game! I met this woman in July, I went to see the surgeon in August, and my journey began. I did everything they said and I GOT APPROVED! That's the first time I cried real tears of joy. I couldn't believe it. I was finally going to be thin. So, 3 weeks after my approval, I was in the OR. Now I am on my way to the new me and I couldn't be happier with how I feel! What I thought would never happen happened! I love my sleeve and am looking forward to the new life it is going to give me!

I'm so excited! I committed to start working out again Sunday and have worked out 5 times since then. My 5am workouts are so therapeutic. I even took a 20 minute soak in epsom salts )post work out therapy salts) in my jacuzzi bathtub this morning after my workout and before I started getting ready for work. The jets and hot water felt awesome. Talk about an awesome way to start the day!!
I stopped eating more than 20g of carbs a day on Monday and

Be kind. I'm not wearing any makeup and I was outside and in the pool all day and it's HOT here in Texas. I'm an extremely modest person so wearing that bikini and posting these is kind of a break through moment for me. I NEVER show my thighs and my tan lines don't match. Lol.

I bought a bikini to wear this weekend but since it's not a skirted bottom, I DOUBT I'll be letting anyone take pics of that and I certainly

My body fat percentage is well within the healthy range. I have lost 67.75 inches and went from size 20 to size 4/6 and XS/S which I never thought was possible.
