Thank you for uploading the new video, wow well done in your weightloss so far you look fantastic and your friends are right 'you will be a hell of a bride'
Cant wait to see the 4 month video
Why did you choose to have the band removed? i have a band but have put weight on with it, was thinking about having the bypass but i dont like the risks, can you tell me if there are any major risks of the sleeve as i cant find much info on it?

well done again, and heres to the next 100lbs or however many you want to lose

Hey Steph,

We will be putting up some WLS guides, on the WLS page here on RealSelf soon. There will be a guide for Gastric bypass, Lap Band and VSG. I'll let you know when they're up as they may help you with the information you're looking for!

Just to get you started, here is the new WLS page, which currently has the forum, as well as some nutritional guides: http://www.realself.com/weight-loss-surgery/info

Hello, I can post my latest videos on here as well. I have absolutely no regrets as to doing the revision from band to sleeve or choosing the doctor I chose in Mexico.


I am also going to do a 4 month video some time today or tomorrow if you would like see that you can always subscribe to me and see where I am.
