Sleeved or not sleeved:
I have had a gastric sleeve.
Parents on me about my weight since about 29 yo now even after the passing of my Dad I thought the comments would stop. So now at 58 I am undertaking this step after thousands of dollars on diets, CDs "programs" ect I hope this will be my answer.
No real health problems but sure is hard to tie shoes and not barf after a meal due to gerd. Hoping this makes it a bit easier to play with the grandkids too! Best of luck to anyone on this site. Here is to our taking the leap!
I love exploring, traveling

The week has not been too bad. I have a hard time getting in the full amount of liquids a day that they would like ,but not dehydrated. Protein intake is also not what it should be just do not like the isopure or cytomax. Anyone with a better suggestion please let me know I do not want the muscle I have wasting away HAHA
