7 year surgiversery
Well.....it's been a really long time since I have posted on here. I realized this morning that today is my 7 year surgiversery. There have been ups and downs and high and low pointsI dropped 90 lbs and was thrilled with that.....still wanted to lose about 50 more. Then I hit a stall and started slipping on the program. Over the course of 2 years I gained back about 15 lbs. ...ws finding it really easy to snack a lot and eat around the sleeve. I just didn't feel that restriction unless I really ate a big meal. Christmas I decided that things had to change and I had to get back on track. I'm happy to say I am back on track!!! I've been on a high protein/low carb diet and I'm down 25 lbs since Christmas. I am feeling the restriction of the sleeve again and feeling pretty good about that. Right now I'm at a bit of plateau but I'm committed to getting the rest of the weight off.

Thanks for sharing your story. It is good to hear that your sleeve is still giving you the restriction 7 years down the road.
I'm glad you are back on track.

I agree with Cappy- it is reassuring to see someone much further out still able to have adequate restriction, even after a stint of off plan escapades. I am glad to see you have found your mojo again and pulled off 25. Congrats on that for sure!
