    Default What a difference a sleeve made!

    In 2011, in May, my youngest grandchild was born. I was at 220 lbs (down from my highest of 240).

    This year, on my birthday, also in May, we look very different!

    If you get discouraged, go back and look at your photos!

    [I]HW: 240 lbs CW: 205 lbs: SW: 199 lbs GW: 130 lbs

    1 MO = 167.0 2 MO = 156.4
    3 MO = 148.4 4 MO = 140.6
    5 MO = 136.0 6 MO = 130.0 (GOAL)
    1 YR = 122.0 2 YR = 136.00

    WOW!

    Spectacular Annie!

    I only have 1 before pic (it’s in my profile), because I wouldn’t let anyone take my picture.

    I look at it once in awhile as a reminder of what an awesome tool VSG is ;-)

    Sometimes we become so focused on what we "lost" that we forget what we've become.

    We are fortunate to have made a decision to take control of our health and our life!

    A sweet, caring person in all the pictures, but what a difference!
    You lost a lot, but you also gained so much!
    English is not my first language anymore, so I may and do make mistakes in my spelling, or say things oddly. Please ask me, if you want any clarifications.

    Annie- my goodness! You look so incredibly different now, truly transformed. In your heavy picture you look like you are ill - your eyes are dull and distant, and you look about 10 years older (I don't mean to offend you! After 30 years of nursing, I tend to look at people through a different lens). You look so healthy and happy now! Your eyes sparkle and you look vibrant and the outside matches the inside. Thanks for sharing. So happy for you!!

    You would really have to work hard to offend me! You are correct. I had uncontrolled angina, a failed triple bypass (well, still have that), 3 strokes, chemo, radiation, diabetes, high blood pressure....so most things resolved and got better.

    It's rather like getting a health do-over! And thanks, I feel good! And am a participant, not an observer.

    And tickled to be 67!
