    Default Today is my 6 year Sleeve Anniversary!

    Today is my sleeve anniversary! Six years ago today. I can't believe it! My life has changed exponentially! I no longer hide at home, not wanting to go out, not traveling, not shopping--just going through life, but not really living my best life. I always felt like I was a thin person trapped in my big body. While I am not thin, I am 80 pounds lighter both in body and in mind. I credit so many things: my awesome surgeon and his team, this site and its great members. I can always come to this site and get what I need: that may be a little inspiration, or a good kick in the butt. This surgery gave me back what I didn't know I was missing and that is a healthy life. While I am certainly not perfect and me and 5 pounds still go back and forth from time to time, I know that my "sleevie" is still working when I work it. I'm so emotional today because when I think back to where I was and where I am now, all I can say is I am blessed.

    Congrats you have done great and you should be very proud of yourself. I am having my surgery in 5 days and I’m very excited. It’s thanks to you and the other ‘old’ timers on this site that have mad me feel excited instead of nervous, so I thank you all for still being here to share your wisdom and experience to us ‘newbies’ x
