    Default Here we go!!

    Hello fellow sleevers! I am Elisa and I came across this amazing and supportive online community. I am seriously considering getting the gastric sleeve surgery done soon. I am meeting with a local surgeon to do my initial consult to get the ball rolling on March 11th. I am excited for this journey to begin and seeing how supportive and nice everyone is on here, I knew I had to be apart of it. I currently weigh in at 238 lbs. and would like to be at 150 as my final/maintenance goal weight. I have tried many diets and have even put this body through a couple rounds of P90X and about seriously injured myself. I think if I do end up getting the surgery, it will give me the boost I need for changing my lifestyle and building my confidence up. I am also dedicated to getting healthy for my amazing son, Luke. Although he is a skinny kid now, so was I at his age. The only difference is he is growing up in a very sedentary society of videogames and computer use where I was outside until the lights came on So here I go....step one!


    Initial Consult: 3/11/14
    Weight on 3/3/14 = 238
    Weight on 4/26/14 = 225
    Weight on 5/21/14 = 217 ( Sleeve Day!!)
    Weight on 6/3/14 = 208
    My Personal Weight Loss Goal = 150

    Hi and welcome. It's such a personal decision, to start out on this journey and part of the joy of this community is you have men and women who are at all stages of it. It's certainly not all roses and ponies, but I'd go through it again any day of the week. Keep us posted.
