    Hey. Saw your post in the gay sleevers group. Nope...most of the groups are pretty inactive. I stopped posting in the groups because realize they are like ghost towns. Much more activity on the regular forums.
  2. thanks

    Thank you all for lovely kind the messages. It's six days since surgery. I'm improving each day and taken well to to the clear fluid diet. Surgery was a painful experience but I was well looked after by the team of nurses and doctors who looked after me.

High School Weight

by gopostal24 on 01-15-2018 at 12:21 PM
Today I got on the scale and I saw that the scale read 236 - which is great - I've let go of 86 pounds since surgery in August - but 236 is a significant weight because in my junior year in high school, everyone got weighed in the gym - an odd school activity to be sure - but my weight that day was 236. Now some would argue that being at your "high school weight" would be a major accomplishment but at the time I remember being MORTIFIED of that weight - most kids weighed 150,160 - and

86 Days Post Surgery - Just Posted First Before And After Pictures

by gopostal24 on 11-18-2017 at 11:28 PM
I just posted my first before and after pictures to my profile, after three months and (so far) 66 pounds lost. Yikes. The before picture was taken mid-July, the after picture was taken last Wednesday (11/8/17). I can't believe it is the same person in both pictures. It is ironic that a few people have made a big deal about the transformation but most people have either said off the cuff remarks like "have you been working out?" or "have you lost a few pounds?" or have said

Down 50 - Halfway There - And Kidney Stones!

by gopostal24 on 10-12-2017 at 12:38 PM
Happy to report that I am down 50 pounds - just 10 days prior to 2 months post-op. Not as happy to report that I got to experience my first kidney stone and if the pain I felt is anything like child birth, I will now declare that I am never going to have children!

I am told that that issue is potentially tied to not drinking enough water - which seems to be the endless scourge. So hard to drink water when you are used to guzzling an entire glass or bottle after the gym and knowing

3 Weeks Post Op Today - Can't Eat My Feelings

by gopostal24 on 09-11-2017 at 12:00 AM
Just wanted to do a little check-in now that I am 3 weeks post-surgery. It feels like forever and yesterday, I must say. Things are generally going well. I am in pureed foods and most I tolerate well but eggs (my family owned an egg farm when I was a kid) have been enemy number one. My stomach is still a bit sore and my energy lags a bit, but dropping 34 pounds and NEVER FEELING hunger with minimal side effects has been a blessing.

I think one of the most difficult things for

Day 2 Post-Op Sleeve

by gopostal24 on 08-24-2017 at 10:13 PM
Well, today was day 2 of post-op (came home yesterday). And today was much better than yesterday. I was also treated for a hiatal hernia which actually physically hurts way more than the sleeve surgery. Very minimal side-effects and little pain (besides where the hernia was corrected) Today was all about eating - slowly, slowly, but the world didn't end and I am so grateful that I didn't have a lot of other issues I have seen written about here. Phew. So blessed. I know I will have to go
