    Thanks Annette! Yes it has been a pretty easy journey. I still battle mentally with food and make myself sick sometimes but I've been really healthy overall. No complications physically. How are you doing emotionally? I've had some challenging days with my husband. Lots of insecurity and now he thinks he's not good enough for me, or that I'll cheat on him

    you look great Annette... I would love to read about your progress. I had my procedure July 20th. Much success post op.. Previous bander then converted to Sleeve. I had the band for 5 years. Complications removed emergency surgery in Florida in May.. My surgeon did not want to sleeve me then.. NO alternatives went to Mexico.. Excellent experience up to day. Hoping you have a great day
  4. Hey Brad... I'm down 50 lbs... I feel great and don't really have any issues! except when I make my plate I put too much on it, lol!!! I have had to get rid of all my XXL stuff and I'm in Mediums and a size 10 and some 8's... crazy!! I hear from one sweet lady Bobby who is doing great and really looks great too!! and the Nurse Practitioner whose name was also Annette sometimes will check on me, her daughter was the one she was with who did this!!! I'm still very pleased with the results...

I'm about 80 days out and for some reason I feel like I have a sick to my stomach headache! Today at lunch I had a small piece of grilled pork and a few bites of tomato soup.... I've been able to eat for the most part anything I wanted but today I'm not feeling so good! I did have a peanut butter pretzel that didn't do well with my tummy at all this morning! Has anyone had this....
