    Thanks and WOWEE!! Aren't you looking HOT! You'll definitely have to share your before and after with your lifts. I'm getting my boobs done, again, from my breast reconstruction, but my arms...UGH!

    Fantastic! Each day is a better day, still in awe of how little of something makes me full! 45 years old and for the first time in my life, I have the feeling of being full!! I don't watch the scale, I don't do measurements. I see so many people who's lives are controlled by "how much weight they've lost" that when it doesn't happen as fast as they think it should, depression sets in. It took me 20 years to put this weight on, i can't expect it to come off in days or even months. 1 day at a time! I'm down approx 35 pounds (I check the scale every couple weeks), off blood pressure meds, and decreasing other meds. VERY happy with my decision, although I don't think I would recommend it for everyone. You have to be in the right place mentally to handle the highs and lows, discomfort, etc. Too many people are whiners and complainers with high, unrealistic expectations. I read and hope the best for them Thanks for checking in on me LOVE the support of this site!!

    He's very happy with the progress and healing so far. I'm bored silly with my limited menu options ugh! He has a 100% non-leakage rate because of the strict diet after. 2 weeks and 5 days of liquid.. then on to pureed/mushie!! One goal at a time.. and I'm happy with each one I've achieved so far!

    Thank you so much! I keep going back to your sage wisdom on your one year post op as I'm looking at just 1 week post op! I'm finally doing for myself what I always do for others.. thinking of me first and letting those around me take care of me! All is well, I think I am doing great and will see my surgeon tomorrow to see if he agrees
  9. Awesome pictures. You have done fantastic!

    Thank you for such a nice, heartfelt send-off! I appreciate your caring very much! I'll post as soon as I'm able. If I could have my laptop there I would...I hope I breeze through it like so many...Lukes account, while interesting and somewhat comical, was pretty scary. See you soon

1 year Surgery-versary!! :)

by dackn8tr on 05-22-2013 at 09:35 AM
Somehow itís been a whole year since my surgery and let me tell you, one year can make SOO much difference in the ordinary life!! Iíve lost a total of 117lbs since I started with the local bariatric center on November 3, 2011, 76 lbs since the morning of my surgery a year ago today, & I couldnít be happier with my sleeve!! Iíve regained my self esteem, my energy and have discovered how much I enjoy life again! I can go out in public and eat without the stares, or at least without the ďwhy is

Pressure to stop losing

by dackn8tr on 03-07-2013 at 11:36 AM
Has anyone else gotten close to their goal and started hearing from their family and friends that they needed to stop losing? Scratch that, I passed my original goal back before Christmas and have added on another 25 pounds to lose just for good measure but now i'm wondering if that was the right decision ... i hate it when i let people get in my head this way!! I'm 9 1/2 months out of surgery, down 115 pounds from my start with the Bariatric program November 2011 and am starting to catch comments

Another goal met!

by dackn8tr on 11-04-2012 at 07:12 AM
When i started my 6 month program with the Bariatric center they had me write down my goals for this process. I've acheived a lot of them already (start exercising, give up pop, stop eating out etc) but the one i'm the most proud of is to "be healthier by my 40th birthday" and today's that day Since i made that goal the day before my b-day last year i've lost 95 pounds, went from a BMI of 45 to a BMI of 28.6, from "Morbidly Obese" to "Overweight" and have so much

The Best NSV yet ...

by dackn8tr on 10-25-2012 at 11:44 AM
I hear a lot of compliments on the way I look at this point (95 pounds lost since I started the bariatric program last November is pretty noticeable) and I love every one of them, but the most special and unexpected one came last night. We took our daughter and a couple friends out to dinner for her birthday, one of her friends had been to the house a couple times but I hadnít seen her since I started this journey. Pam (our daughter) had told her about my surgery so they were both excited for

What a difference a year makes!!!

by dackn8tr on 10-11-2012 at 04:35 PM
Well, it's been a hell of a year - some good, some bad but all in all the best of my life so far and i wouldn't trade it for ANYTHING!! Since October 2011 I've had 4 steroid injections and a "nerve burn" in my low back to relieve some of my pain, i went through a 6 month insurance mandated program with the local Bariatric Center, lost my grandmother (dad's mom) and grandfather (mom's side) and had to have a very scary biopsy performed. I thought my world was crashing down on me for 3 days
