    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.

    Hi Kenson. I’m doing really well and thx for asking. I’m on soft foods now, back to driving and feeling very well. I get a little bit of heartburn sometimes but nothing to complain about and early days yet.

    Hi sally, I'm doing really well thanks. Went out gor dinner yesterday and just had some food from my families plates. There wasn't really anything suitable that i could eat, so i ended up having some steak pie filling and some sweet potato fries. Very difficult when going out at the moment. Something I'm sure gets a lot easier when you've had the sleeve longer. Im sure you would agree Kenson?
