Ht. 5'7", Start: 350 lb, Today: 275 lb, Goal: 160 lb - Hi guys, I havent been on here in a few years. I used to use this all the time as a support group when i was really struggling. I come back now after 2 years and 75lbs down. I come here today because I just received my surgery date. I will be having bariatric gastric sleeve May 31st. It was a long journey to deciding to have this surgery. after seeing both parents go threw it and having a life change i wanted to jump on that bandwagon. have done well thus far but i felt i needed a boost and the surgery is going to help. I have been in a rollercoaster pattern for the last 5 years and right now is the first time i have been able to keep this weight off and its a struggle. i only come here for help so please dont bash me for deciding to take the route of surgery.
