Before I had my surgery I signed up to run a 5k. After losing 90 pounds with the help of my sleeve and four months after surgery I was able to complete it! I now have my life back! I am healthy and can play with my little girl. I haven’t been this confident in years. My only regret is that I didn’t do it sooner!
