I was miserable. I failed at diets over and over. Losing and gaining the same 50 lbs. After knowing someone personally that was very successful with the sleeve, I decided to schedule a consultation - best decision ever. I hit my highest weight of 285 lbs. the day I delivered my 2nd child. Prior to surgery I lost 80 lbs., then had sleeve and after losing another 50 lbs. I feel amazing and confident. I can be more active with my children and have much more fun shopping for clothes. I have inspired several people to have the sleeve done as well.
