Well it's been almost 3 years since my wls (sleeve)  and I can honestly say it's the best choice aside for my kids I've ever made....  I'm not perfect by any means  but it I do feel like I'm the best me I can be....  And every day I make sure I continue to keep it that way....  Yes there are struggles and ups and downs and I do allow myself to cheat here and there yes sorry I do eat a piece of chocolate or a cookie or cake now and again...  But I hold myself accountable...  If I do have my cheat I work it off.  I get on the scale every day and if I go over 5 lbs up or down I hit it hard to make sure I stay at my weight I like me at..... ....  Wls saved my life

Hi Kelly Jean.  It's great to see a post from you.  I have often wondered how you are doing.  I am 2.5 years out and I've gained 15 lbs. so I've got to get back to the basics.  It feels terrible - physically - to be the least bit overweight.  I HATE the feeling.  You look great and I'm glad you are sticking to your goals.  Keep up the good work and best of luck to you!

Pam,

Our sleeve dates are almost the same! I also have gained 12 pounds and it feels awful. My clothes still fit, but not as well. I feel like I am back at 270pounds! I have gotten back on my stationary bike and riding 10 miles 5 days a week. I am really working on better, cleaner eating too. Trying to make changes I can keep up with. 

Granddaugher just sold me 5 boxes of Girl Scout cookies! Mulling over best way to rid myself of them.

I hope in three months I can say I am down 10 pounds. Good luck

And let this be a cautionary tale to the newbies. Don't drop your guard because it creeps back.

Tip for next year's Girl Scout cookie season: The Girl Scouts are happy to donate your cookies to the military or a local food bank. You never have to handle a box of Thin Mints... No temptation!
