Ever heard of having your stomach stapled? Sleeve gastrectomy is that kind of surgery. By permanently reducing the stomach to the size of a banana, this procedure aids in weight loss. Unlike gastric bypass, it doesn’t change digestion. LEARN MORE ›

I first remember when I was 8 yrs old seeing stretch marks on my thighs. Then as puberty came along stretch marks on my breasts and hips. I was never a large kid just a little chubby. My mother was always obsessed with her weight so I remember being 11 yrs old doing crazy starvation or green... READ MORE

I am not shy, and will probably overshare! lol I had thought about having WLS previously, but never was able to... READ MORE

I'm gonna do this tomorrow!!! It's almost surreal. Just decided to do this 3 weeks ago. I chose Dr. Ramos Kelly in Tijuana Mexico because of basically reviews and a good consultation. I'm going to Angeles Hospital. I'm traveling alone, a little scared about that one. I want to start the... READ MORE

I begin my journey 9/4/2014. Prior to my first appointment, I researched the locations that perform the Gastric bypass surgery.

Well first let just say thank you all for posting your experiences, what an amazing site... This decision was not easy and was something I said I would never do and considered it the "easy way out". I now have to eat my words because it has become necessary so that I can get back to a clean bill... READ MORE

I'm 44 yrs old and weigh 255 pounds. The most I have ever weighed. I've tried the diets, weight meds, exercise, bootcamps, you name it. I'm getting ready to have the gastric sleeve done in August. I'm really excited to start this new chapter in my life to be thin again. I've had the blood... READ MORE

I am 36 years old, been married for 16 years and have 2 children (12 and 6). I have struggled with my weight off and on since I was a child. I was/am always the friend with "such a pretty face." I am the largest I have ever been (5' 3.25"/ 232 lbs) and that includes being pregnant with 10 lb... READ MORE

I'm 61 and I've been yoyo-ing between size 12 and 18 since I was a teenager. Up and down this same 65lbs about 10 times in all. Every day is a battle and although I've won many days, the only inevitable loss I have at the end, is in the battle. I've hit 61 and I just can't battle again. I... READ MORE

After reading all the reviews and enjoying how much they have helped boost my confidence, I decided that sharing my story may help others. I am a 30-year-old mother of three and have been married for 10 years this June 2015. I never had any weight problems as a kid and have always been a... READ MORE

Hi Everyone, My name is Sharen I am 42 wife and mom of 3. I have struggled with my weight as long as I remembered I am currently at my highest weight 218 5 foot 5 which may not seem a lot to some but for me it is. Being over 200 pounds pushed me into type II diabetes. I also have... READ MORE

I'm 40 years old and I've been overweight all my life. I never thought anything of it because I'm 5'8 and wear it well. Until going to the doctor just having high blood pressure now I have sleep apnea and high cholesterol. My blood pressure was so high one day I thought I was going to die. I'm... READ MORE

Today I went to a seminar on the "sleeve"; and I'm working to see if my insurance will cover it. If it doesn't I will pay out of pocket. The seminar really helped ease my fears of it all. Many of the staff were former patients and very sincere! Looking forward to doing this! Hopefully my... READ MORE

One week out from Sleeve and I've lost 14lbs so far. While some of you may think "why in gods name did this girl get this done"... I'm a realist. I know I was overweight, obese per my weight. I wanted to get it under control now. All my life I have been slim, and just recently in the last 6... READ MORE

I decided on having the gastric sleeve because obviously I was morbidly obese, I'm a live kidney donor, and most importantly I have children and grandchildren I want to be around to enjoy. I started my liquid diet on Sept 22, 2014 the first day was pure hell as my son whom is an amazing cook... READ MORE

A very long story short (or semi-short, I'm a talker!) I lost my ability to walk alone due to medical issues in 1997. I doubled my weight, I was too big and unable to attend many school events of my 4 children. Finally last year I missed my daughters wedding because I was unable to fly. I made... READ MORE
