Well got my approval for gastric sleeve surgery and headed for the operating table August 13. All goes well, its just an overnight in hospital and a few weeks of recovery, followed by a lifetime of a new diet and portion control. Beliefs are high by both surgeon and my primary doctor that i will get off a lot of my meds, including insulin once i shed 150 pounds. Mrs Beaver is having same procedure, but we are still waiting for her approval. He doctor was very slow at submitting needed info. They told me i could expect to loose more than 20 pounds a month, even more if i stay very active. Will keep you posted with pics as we progress

 Way to go 8).  Rita's niece had the gastric sleeve done. I didn't even recognize her. Told Rita to tell her she look's good. She lost around 80#.

Thank you all for the good wishes. I am down another 8 pounds and now at 270. That leaves me 78 pounds down already and just 2 pounds short of my half way to goal weight of 198. Mrs. Beaver is just 2 weeks post surgery and already down 16 pounds. Recovery has been a bit harder on her, but in the end i am sure she will be fine. I wish we had done this years ago. Hoping to look much better when we attend pig roast next year
