About SavvySleever

Approximately a year and a half ago I started considering getting gastric surgery.  It began as an idea after I saw an old college friend who was always bigger than me on Facebook.  I hadn’t kept up with her after college and she looked amazing!  (She had lost over a hundred pounds.)  To be honest, I was a bit jealous.  I had struggled with my weight throughout my entire life, trying just about everything and nothing seemed to work.  And after the scales tipped at 252.8 lbs I knew I had to be proactive about my weight issue.  After consulting with a few physicians, and starting a lengthy pre-approval process with my insurance, I was on my way.

This website is my journey, my observations, and my recipes.  I’m not a doctor, and I can only share what has worked for me along the way.  I had the gastric sleeve surgery on November 22, 2013, but that was only the beginning.  As my husband constantly reminds me – this is a marathon and not a sprint.
