  1. An update

    Soooo, I am now 123lbs. According to the BMI charts I am a few pounds shy of "underweight" but according to my mirror I am already there.
    My size 2's are baggy. My fitness pal tells me I need 2,320 calories a day to gain 1lb a week. I am having a really hard time getting in that many calories. The foods I eat just don't add up to 2320 calories. Maybe if I has an appetite I wouldn't have as much trouble getting those calories in.
    eating is like doing laundry: Something ...
  2. The stomach bug!!

    My daughter went to her friends house Friday night. They went to the Chinese restaurant and out to ice cream, then hung out at her friends house for 2 hours. Last night her friend started throwing up and having diarrhea, just feeling terrible. Luckily we had plans yesterday or the friend would have come to my house.
    A little while ago my daughter told me she's had diarrhea 4x today. She has no problem eating and no fever/vomiting.
    I have been bleaching everything in the bathroom, ...
  3. Mildly anemic?

    I have been cleared to donate blood for a few months now. I go every two months like clock work. Each time you donate your vitals must be good and hemoglobin has to be above 12.5
    I had my finger stick and it was 10.4....the low end of normal is 12.1
    There are a few different reasons why that # could be low but based on what I've researched and discussed with the nurse I think I have low iron.
    *For the past 6 weeks I have been irritable and haven't had much energy. I thought ...
  4. Looking through old pictures...

    I can't believe that was me. I have pictures that show me gradually getting bigger and bigger until I hit my max weight of 255lbs.
    I knew I was big. I knew I was obese, but I didn't realize just how big I was. I looked in the mirror and I saw myself. I didn't see that person in the picture. When I would have to dress up it was fustrating because nothing fit good, but after I was dressed and ready I was happy with myself. Thought I looked good. Perfect example is my before picture, which ...
  5. It's been a year...it went by fast.

    December 30th marked my one year sleeve anniversary
    The day before my surgery I was 255lbs
    My goal was to get down to 145lbs by my one year anniversary. It seemed impossible that I would loose over 100 pounds at all, let alone in 1 year.
    But I am here as proof that it is most definitely possible. I have been staying around 128 pounds for (I think) 2 months.
    I eat 1900-2100 calories a day to maintain. I will increase to gain by adding a little at a time (not easy,I'm ...
