So i've booked in for a GS for October 1st. Scared silly for all the lifestyle changes i'll need to make but so looking forward to being able to run around longer with my son, fit comfortably in an plane seat and shop for clothes in normal stores! I'm a 35yr old mum of one (4 miscarriages... READ MORE

The process has taken about a year and has been an incredibly long journey but has been totally worth it and an eye opening experience in regard to my relationship with food. I would definitely recommend everyone do research on the best procedure for you. I was originally sold on gastric bypass... READ MORE

I started my journey earlier this year at the end of July beginning of August. I am currently scheduled for surgery in just over 2 weeks. This whole procedure that I have gone through has truly been a life changing experience. I can't wait for surgery, though the post op diet is not so great. My... READ MORE

I have been overweight for the past 5 years and obese for the past 3. I have tried everything from diets, diet pills, fasts, and exercise. I have no problem losing weight but it's being able to stick to a particular plan to have a long lasting effect. People constantly try to reassure me that... READ MORE

I have always been a big girl my whole life. My joke when people start talking about what size they were in high school is I went from 4T to plus size...unfortunately its not much of a joke. I always remember my dad saying "you would be so much prettier if you just lost the weight". I have... 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

Hi everyone, I'm a crazy busy mom, (45 yrs young) and wife. I way the same today, that I did 17 1/2 yrs ago when I gave birth to my Babyboy.

Dr. Illan, (full name is Dr. Selim Jalil Illán Fraijo) is such a talented surgeon. From the moment I got to the hospital I knew I was in the right spot for me. I never had any hesitations once I got there and surgery was a wonderful success! I'm down 108lbs at 6 months! The hospital was... READ MORE

Sick and tired of being sick and tired! Have frequent headaches. My dad and his sister have sleep apnea, so they suggested I have that checked out. Did that early this year (2 sleep studies). That dr came in and introduced himself, and said, I see you're 44. I said no, I'm 41. He says, oh 44 is... READ MORE

I have decided that it is time that I do something about my weight. I have struggled with obesity since I was 8 years old. I am now 26 and I am at my heaviest weight ever.....285lbs. I was diagnosed with hypertension at age 13 and since then have been diagnosed with prediabetes and polycystic... READ MORE

I didn't even know the Sleeve was an option. I didn't want the Bypass and figured I'd have to have the Lap Band even though I... READ MORE

I have never been small. My weight has been like a yoyo constantly going up and down. I will lose weight then I'll gain it back. My breaking point was when I gained 15 pounds after being switched from one blood pressure med to another. I think I felt disappointed in myself for even allowing... READ MORE

Recently one of my kids asked me why I wasn't in any of our family photos. That question stopped me in my tracks. I can't deny it, I've been the "phantom participant" for most of my kids' life. And that saddens me immensely, but I cannot change the past. But I can change this path going forward.... READ MORE

Pam here. I've been going through all the pre-testing to have the Gastric Sleeve Surgery. I'm excited to finally be putting myself first. It's hard to come to grips with that, that I'm worth it and deserve this but I do. I'm 41, recently divorced, have an 18 year old son, am 5'8 and 310 lbs.... READ MORE
