After years of thinking about weight loss, struggling with health issues in additional to gradual weigh gain - I've booked in for gastric sleeve with Dr Victor Leiw this week. Part of the reassurance that this is what I need has been the online stories people have shared, as well meeting/knowing a dozen others in the last 12mths whom have had positive outcomes from being sleeved. Two months ago I was 183k, after several weeks on pre-op I'm 170k. Let's see what the future brings... Wish me luck.
