Hey Everyone,

Welcome to the team. I'm glad y'all are here helping each other.

I was sleeved on April 7, 2008, and would do it again in a New York minute.
I don't consider it the easy way out. It's the BEST thing I have ever done for myself. Almost 12 years later I have lost 120 pounds, and kept it off for 12 years. I could never have done that without surgery.
Y'all take care, and continue to encourage each other.

That is so true. It will be a life changing event. For some of us, surgery is a real help. Some people say it's the "easy way out," but it's harder than usual "dieting." That said, it's very doable and gives great results.

The biggest challenge is that Fat Brain (our eating disordered mind) doesn't go away. You have to work with yourself to change the brain and old habits. The surgery is a tool.

I see people here who have struggled as I did, and I want to scream from the rooftops -"get weight loss surgery. It works. What you have been doing hasn't."

Not had my surgery yet. Should be late April or Early May 2020.

I lost 120 pounds in 2016. Gained a little back but have not lost anything since then. I am so tired of this struggle. I know there will be restrictions and a different struggle with the sleeve but it has to be better than what I have been doing for the last 50 years!
