    hey!!! iam sure your doing amazing!! 276!!! WTG!!!! its amazing feeling i just got under the 70's yesterday!! i was at a complete stand still since june.. and bc i fell off my plan so basically my sleeve is done. LOL! its done alll the work its going to do the lazy way for me i dont think i did any exercise since loosing these past 5 months i mean a few walks and gym ,nothing consistent like i should be doing. Iam okay w that. Now i have 100 to go untill well 105 lol. I am on a keto diet plan and eventually when i eat or can eat more and at goal or maybe 20lbs off i plan on lifestyle of counting macros... its just what works for me.. keto works for me i know bc i was not dropping and in 2 weeks its under the 70's mark. I will never get to goal w sleeve alone ,but thats okay i knew this would happen so i think i have prepared myself. Iam very happy i didnt start off doing keto and waited now my body will not be used to it and can continue losing wo too much of a stall hopefully!... ,but everyday is a new day constant learning.. and today is a bday potluck w lots of cupcakes and my favorite sugar laden carb loaded foods... wish me luck!! xxxx

    This may sound super strange ,but i dont feel any different. I notice stuff and it makes me happy and excited for the moment like fitting all the way in a chair and smaller clothes or current ones look better. Maybe another 20lbs and i will feel it. I still,hurt a lot ,but ive always had back, knee, feet issues simce i was 15 always poped advil or,spent paychecks on special insoles so maybe that will never change , but hopefully less if iam smaller i was 200 in highschool so size 12/14 maybe at 165 it will be a cure for me ... We will see

Gastric Sleeve Surgery Stateside Self-pay and 4 days later

by tina833 on 03-14-2016 at 04:41 PM
Well I did it! I had my gastric sleeve surgery last Thursday and had it done by a surgeon here in the states and I was self-pay.

I've read so few on here from people who did it state-side and were self-pay that I wanted to share my experience.

My surgeon is Doctor M. Wayne Westmoreland of Murfreesboro, TN and my total out-of-pocket was $12,350. That was 12K for the surgery, $250 for the psyche exam, $75 for the nutritionist and $25 for the Cardiologist to read my EKG.

The first thing I want to address is "the pain!" I do not recall reading anything about how bad the pain can be and let me tell you I had some excruciating pain.

I've also learned a lesson from this that I wish I had known going into

Must lose 20 pounds before Surgery

by tina833 on 02-18-2016 at 10:14 PM
My surgery is scheduled for March 10th and my surgeon wants me to lose 20 pounds because of how my BMI is. I don't recall how much he said mine was but I did an online test not long ago and I am thinking it was about 59. I just redid it and it came out to 59.4. He explained how important this is due to my liver.

Is it normal for surgeries to be cancelled based on BMI? I'm doing really well on my first diet in forever and start the liquid only 2 weeks before surgery. However, I'm not
