    Mary, by looking at this latest picture of you, no one would ever guess you had a weight problem. You look terrific! Don't you feel GRRRRRREAT?!?!?

    Wow you look amazing ! You have the same phone and cover as I do hahaha.
    I am looking forward to seeing how much room there is between my thighs and the edge of the seat on the plane. It will be an absolute first if there's any room spare! I am hoping there will be.
    Have you got any tips on how to keep on track? You look great. I am stuck on 169 but it's been Christmas and I did have a few naughty things but not much of anything but now I am at this stage of losing 78 pounds it makes a difference. Do you exercise a lot? What meals work best for you.
    Sorry didn't mean to write such a long post but it's great to hear from you and as you are way ahead of me thought I would ask you
    All the best

    Hi - i am new to all this, and have a surgery scheduled in the next 2 weeks. I am so happy that I finally decided to do it, and have many friends and parents who are supportive. My issues seem to mainly be mental - I am scared about things going wrong, and will I have the willpower to stay on point. Any words or suggestions, would be greatly appreciated!!

    Hi Mary, thanks so much for the friend approval as well as the visitor message! I truly appreciate your comment and warm welcome! I'm very excited about the changes and have began some changes on my own in preparation of my new lifestyle. I would say that the more clothes to shop for would be a good thing!!! I love the second-hand stores for donating and buying new so I'm sure that will get used, but buying something new in a fun new size would be extremely exciting in itself! You look amazing and you're such an inspiration especially for those of us just starting the process so thank you again for your comments. I will, indeed, keep people posted as that's one of my favorite parts of perusing this site... so many inspirational stories and such great information. Thank you again! I look forward to hearing more from you soon! Have a great day... Shelley

    That's OK, Mary. At the time I messaged you, I had hit a low and needed some encouragement. Thankfully, that has passed as the Lord keep me lifted up. I appreciate you responding. I'll be back in touch with you as you are one of the most encouraging members on this forum. Thanks so much!

    Your lovely positive message was very encouraging and so Thank you so much for taking the time to write to me... I have rescheduled my surge for 24 June and start the pre op protein diet next Monday. Your message was great and just what i need to hear.. I gave myself 3 weeks to get myself together and i realise even though i feel i should be able to do this on my own..i have never yet succeeded to keep it off. So i am sure this is the right thing for me and maybe i needed that extra time to really think about it all. I would love to have you as a friend if you are agreeable and have sent you an invitation. Take care and thank you again

Almost 3 years post op and back to basics after weight regain

by aboutime4me on 04-20-2015 at 10:05 AM
Hi everyone, I will be celebrating 3 yrs post op this May 1st. My sleeve has been thee greatest thing in my life. I haven't been here in quite some time and am "turning myself in" to the group for accountability and mutual support.

None of us can do this alone and for me I know it is something I will have to work with for the rest of my life. The sleeve does not miraculously give us weight loss that will last. The sleeve does not get rid of our emotional response to

Two Year Surgiversary

by aboutime4me on 05-01-2014 at 12:48 AM
On the eve of my 2 year surgiversary many thoughts are going through my head. I am so grateful to God for bringing me to the surgery, seeing me through the process and recovery and 95 lb weight loss. It has been like a true miracle for me, a dream that has seen my life change in many respects.

I have been able to maintain the weight loss within 2-3 lbs of my settling in weight, I like to call it. My initial goal was 154 and I got to 157 lbs and after time my body settled

Motorcycle Gal Living Life Again

by aboutime4me on 03-10-2014 at 09:39 AM
Life has changed so much since my sleeve on May 1st of 2012. I can hardly believe it will be two years in a few months. My personal confidence has soared especially on my job. I no longer inwardly feel like a fat blob. I'm proud of myself especially since I've been able to maintain this weight loss of 95 lbs, within 2-3 lbs of my lowest weight...for the very first time in my entire 55 yrs of life! That is a real miracle for me.
One of my greatest joys has returned in being able to ride

Day 609 after sleeve surgery and LOVING IT!

by aboutime4me on 12-30-2013 at 09:18 PM
It's the end of another calendar year for all of us and I just wanted to share my personal experience and journey with my best friend, my sleeve. I was sleeved 609 days ago and am absolutely in LOVE with my best friend!

I dropped 95 lbs in about 11 months after surgery and have been easily maintaining my weight loss within 2-3 lbs of my lowest weight ever since.

My surgery was uncomplicated, I had not real after problems and pretty steadily dropped the pounds over

Radio spot, TV commercial and UTube Video oh my!

by aboutime4me on 10-29-2013 at 09:58 AM
Hey all, I'm at the end of my 17th month post surgery now. Yesterday I just finished filming for a youtube video for my surgeon and the hospital where I had my surgery. I also did a radio commercial a few months ago, a print ad that will be out next month and a tv commercial to be aired sometime in March, I believe. They will all be aired locally here in Las Vegas.
Why am I telling you this? Well, it's to say to those thinking about having the procedure, that there is success with the
