    Hi all, this is my first post on this website.

    My name is John, I live in Nottingham,England, UK!

    I had surgery on Tuesday 20th August 2019.

    My surgery weight was 313lbs, 142kgs, 22 stone 4 lbs.

    I had the Gastric sleeve and I think itís the best decision I have made in my 35 years of living.

    I hope to share views, tips and advice and learn new things from everyone too.

    Hi John

    Welcome. This is a great place for support and advice.
    I agree with you. Being sleeved is the single best thing that I have ever done for myself.

    All the best for your continued success.

    Hi John

    Welcome!

    Nottingham the Uk?

    I know it and I am so happy for you I was born an hour or so away from there.

    Yep, the best decision I ever made in my life too!

    Let the fun begin!

    Life becomes a joy in such simple ways such as getting dressed, shopping for clothes, driving, crossing your legs.

    Everything you can think of feels so different and most of all you value yourself from a different perspective.

    Be well!

    Be happy!

    and enjoy!
