Jericho D - 4 Year Update*

Hi Ms. JoAnne,

I'm doing GREAT...  I am done losing weight, my lowest was 143 2 yrs ago, I felt that was too much and I gained a few to 150 and was there for a bit and now I'm at 165 and been maintaining that for over a year.     This was one of the best decisions I've ever made.  I've recommended so many people to you guys.   I talk to a lot of people and know many that have had the surgery and didn't keep the weight off, not sure how or why because I find it so easy to eat healthy and not over eat anymore.

Kathy D - 4 Year Update*

I never got to my goal weight. However I came within 5 lbs of it.  I have gained about 15 back but I'm staying steady for quite awhile with that.  I would love to lose 20 or 25 more lbs to make it a perfect success.  Overall I'm very happy I had the surgery because I feel so much better with my weight now even tho it isn't where I want to be yet.  So I'm still striving! Weight loss 240 to 160.

Hi JoAnne things have been good. I've went from 379 to 220. I kinda haven't lost anymore weight then that. My life is on the go day in and day out. I need to get back on track. I do believe it was the best decision I made.

The photos are 1 year apart. 305lbs to 210lbs. I'm able to play with my kids, I don't have to shop in the plus size section anymore. The first time I ordered a large sweatshirt online I just knew it wasn't going to fit me but it fits perfectly. I also meant to add I've been able to get off one of my antidepressants that I've been taking for years! Best decision I've ever made!

Melinda L - 2 Year Update*

Hi JoAnne
I can't believe it's been 2 years already!!! 

So I started at 185(ish) 
And in the first 6 months I lost 35 pounds, and then lost another 40 pounds after that. 
So I was at 110 for a bit and worked on actually putting ON a few pounds. I could hardly believe I had to TRY to gain some weight. It was awesome.

I have evened out at 115 and it's absolutely perfect. I'm able to go jogging almost daily, which I love. And I'm getting some muscle tone back as well. 

The whole experience has been wonderful and I would do it again in a heartbeat!! 

Thank you for everything!!

Wendy N - 6 Month Update*

Hi JoAnne, thanks for checking on me.  It's been a long 6 months between the mental and physical healing, but I think I'm doing OK. I was hoping to have dropped a few more lbs by now however I had an original goal weight at the 6 month mark of 175 and this past week i have been between 174 and 176, so I will take that as a win even though my overall goal of 160 seems unlikely. I'm going to send a few pics as well so you can see the progress. I consider myself a surgery success at this point.  Happy Holidays

Kim H - 3 Year Update*

Hi JoAnne. I don't think I am losing anymore. Just maintaining I think. I try not to focus on my weight number too much. I still can only eat a portion of what I used to and end up feeling very full sometimes. I still try not to get to that point but sometimes around the holidays it's difficult lol. I'm really not where I would like to be weight wise but have lost enough that I no longer have health issues. I feel like I'm at a good weight now but vanity wise I'd prefer to lose more but it's just a mental thing really. I'm happy I had the surgery done overall. Thanks for checking in on me. Here is a photo of me with my 2 daughters. I'm in the white flowered shirt.

Calvin P - 2 Year Update*

Hello, yes it has been 2 years since my operation.

My health has been exceptional. I just had a bout with a kidney stone but that is my only concern. The oncologist mentioned that people with this procedure are prone to stones, is that a true statement? I've had infections before but no stones.

I'm staying around 190 at present which is only 5 lbs more than my lowest.

If you remember 4 of my family had this same procedure and we are all doing fine. 

Thank you!

Evelyn F - 1 Year Update*

Hi JoAnne. I've lost a total of 125 pounds. I'm down from a size 24 to a 14. I feel great! Yes, my address and email are still the same.

(One month later): Here's the pics I promised. I'm now down to a size 12 pants and large top.

Prior to my surgery I wore a 3-4XL top or 22-24 and a 3XL bottom or 24. I now weigh 164 pounds.

When I started this journey I was 64 years old and at 289 pounds. I feel sooo much better and have absolutely no problems. I don't have any of the medical issues I had when I weighed 289. I have so much more energy and am able to do so much more.

I'm very glad I had the surgery. It has made a big difference in my life. The change in my diet with y'all's guidance has helped me tremendously!

I can't thank you enough for all your assistance.

Susan W - 6 Month Update*

I am WONDERFUL!!!!!!! I'm down to 231lbs (about 87 lbs lost) and I'm in an 18/20.

The only problem I have is that I'm still burping when I eat. I know it's because of the displacement of the air in my stomach. I'll live with it happily. My incisions are healed and they look good.

My neighbor took a photo the other day and she said that I look better in jeans that fit me and not the baggy ones I've been hiding behind. I know it's a psychological thing that I have to see myself as I really am and not the fat me. I'll send you a before and a now picture.

I'm so happy that my husband and I agreed that it was the best thing for me!
