    Hi! I live in Woodstock and work in Luray! Hoping to have my sleeve within the month! Nice to connect with local people for support!

    WOW, that is amazing. I can't hardly stand this waiting to have mine done. I've really shifted gears and trying to do exactly what I'm suppose to do in order for this surgery to be a success. I think I've lost a few pounds but I don't want to get on the scales, I'll wait til the day of surgery. They change my date to Aug 11th or 12th, I'll know this week which one. I'm excited for you and I can't wait to join the sleeved ones!!

    Hi just wanted to let you know how glad I am you're keeping in touch with me! Dr Garwood was my surgeon for my lap band, I didn't realize he was doing the sleeve now! I have made the decision to do overseas surgery due to our insurance not covering this type of surgery any longer! My date isn't set but I do know it will be in September! Any suggestions or updates you have please share

    Hi we are almost neighbors! I live in Waynesboro would love to meet and hear all about your experience.
  9. I've made it my goal for today to drink at least 3 bottles of water during my work day (815-615). I've only managed 2 the past 2 days where before surgery I would drink 5 or 6 bottles a day without even trying. Good luck

    Did you spend 2 days in the hospital? How's the restricted diet? I'm glad you are feeling much better. Keep in touch and best of luck with everything.

    I've heard those first few days can be rough. I am glad you're feeling better now and getting on with the journey. I am trying to get all the info first hand from those that have been through it before I actually have mine. Keep in touch.

My life now...

by beachgirl22851 on 06-30-2017 at 09:52 AM
Wow! I didn't realize how long it has been since I checked in! So much has happened!
I am the proud momma of a beautiful, healthy baby girl who is nearing 6 months old!
I got back to my prepregnancy weight in about a month, but with the changes in my body, I would love to lose about another 10 pounds but am content where I am when I remember where I was at the beginning of my journey.
I lost my job of almost 12 years when my daughter was just 3 weeks old due to having used

Pregnancy update!

by beachgirl22851 on 08-03-2016 at 08:49 AM
We are officially 16 weeks in, and am starting to wean off of the morning sickness medicine and so far so good! Still haven't gained much weight yet but I am not stressing any gain as it is for a good reason and I now have the tool and resources to lose it again after baby comes!

And..... IT'S A GIRL!!

Finally feeling better..

by beachgirl22851 on 06-09-2016 at 03:50 PM
Morning sickness is no joke. I lost 6 pounds in 2 days due to not being able to keep anything down- no water, Gatorade, crackers, toast, nothing at all. I had already been given some antinausea meds to take, but that was no longer helping. I had worn sea-bands 23 hours a day for 3 weeks and that stopped helping. I ended up at the Ob doctor on Tuesday to receive fluid and medicine via IV. What a relief! They changed the antinausea medicine to something else, and have finally been able to eat!

What an update to share!

by beachgirl22851 on 05-27-2016 at 12:15 PM
So, I sit here almost 1 1/2 years post op, weighing in at 165 (GOAL!!) and "overweight" on the BMI scale instead of "obese" with the mother of all updated for me....

I'm pregnant! This was something that we have been trying for so long to get to, and thanks to a healthier lifestyle resulting from my surgery, it finally has happened! We are officially 9 weeks in, so we still have a way to go, but mommy and baby are happy and healthy! We are due December 30 and on

Where did all this energy come from?

by beachgirl22851 on 04-11-2016 at 12:05 PM
I told my hubby Friday evening I wanted a nice relaxed weekend at home doing nothing for a change. But..... after my 2 friends left Saturday morning from shopping in my old plus size clothes, I decided to clean the kitchen. The clean the bathroom.... Then do I stop? Nope, 3 loads of laundry later I stop to take my mom out to dinner at our favorite Mexican restaurant.

Sunday morning: Hubby, today is our lazy pajama day, I promise!
After breakfast, I clean the fridge. Clean
