    Hi Ashley, thank you for your message! I'm good thank you, a few hic hups here and there but nothing too bad. Congrats on going back to school, it's never easy with a family (been there too :-). Sorry about your tummy, it's a shame with all that weight you lost!! May be it will become smaller near goal? We all lose in different ways...it's amazing! I know for me with all pregnancies, my tummy's muscles are really damaged, I can see it really well this month, I'm sure now I will need surgery and I'm not happy about it. I'm glad I found some great jeans (Signature by Levi Strauss & Co. Women's Totally Shaping Pull On Bootcut Jeans at Walmart) when I was in March in the US, because it's so hot here I can't really wear spanks or any kind of support under my pants and those jeans do help a lot in many ways. I was wearing an other pants and carried an heavy bag, did hurt a muscle in my belly because I didn't have enough support...besides support it also makes my tummy looks smaller..You did lose a lot so far, I'm sure that tummy will become smaller at some point, it just takes it's sweet time! and may be it's already smaller and you don't see it, it's hard to really notice all the changes about ourselves. Take care!

    Thank you! I sent you a fitbit Mother's Day greeting
    School is going along fine. I just finished one of the last two sciences that I need for the radiology program that I'm going to be doing. I won't take classes again until next spring, though. I'm taking the spring and summer of to get the house in order and to just have a break. My daughter is graduating and that takes a lot of time and money so I'm working more. We'll both be super busy with school coming up here soon. Thank God for this surgery that allows us to do it!!! Kudos to you on doing the nursing program!! You'll be just fine where money is concerned real soon! Let's do a work week hustle? Sending you an invite..

    Before i would say 500-600 daily eating whatever ,but now a bit higher maybe i havent been counting calories as much bc iam so foucsed on the other numbers. Finally my fat anazyer came in i was at 48% fat i figured more so meaning i have good muscle still lol. I think its my hormones bc i started taking my vitam b's powder and femeprin again (irregular period un fertility since 18) and noticed a change i can weigh 290 after peeing before clothes yet come home after eating all day w clothes on and weigh 288! So i started lighting time of the month today i need to be more regular taking these vitamins i forget or so tired when i do remember... My right ovary is hurting me so bad scares me somethings off i need to go tomdoc and check it out cancer always scares me! Not sure why but its a major paranoa of mine :/ this week exercise iam gona start doing more kf heck ima try some tonight i bought some show feet splints and pain cream i should be all set!

    Well i have a nutrionist ive looked into getting one but insurace doesnt cover and ofcourse i was sleeved in mexico and iam so poor right now! Lol maybe next year eventually i may need one. Iam still stalled i cried so so bad at work over it today. I cant even get past 80lbs trying my hardest i ever have i litterly float from 288-290. Not over not under. Ive picked up more exercise cut every single diet juice out and past week pumping cucumber water. Still nothing. I was going to add in a few bits of sweet potatoe at at dinner time and see what happens but iam kind of scared to mess with it i want to keep pushing and weigh monday to aee what it says. Havent lost inches either. So i dont understand it. Depressing sooo much so maybe if i was closer,to goal il get there i have to! Some how some way ive seen it done. I hope ur doing well

Finally!

by LaffeyTaffey on 08-17-2015 at 06:27 PM
Finally! I was on a walk with my baby this morning and got THE call. My surgery is set for September 22! It's finally going to be MY turn after 3+ years of watching others get the sleeve surgery. I've been working my butt off to lose at least the 17 requires pounds and I surpassed that a few months ago so whew! I'm hoping to get down to 300 pounds by my surgery date. I believe I weigh 319 currently, so I'm going to cross my fingers and keep doing what I've been doing since I started my required

So I'm having a baby!

by LaffeyTaffey on 11-23-2013 at 03:50 AM
Hey everyone it's been a while! This past June amidst starting my wls journey, I discovered that I'm pregnant. So instead of having my wls around now, I'm doing my best to stay healthy for my little guy who is due Feb 22nd.

I was so concerned about pregnancy AFTER wls that I honestly didn't think it would happen before lol. My ultrasound at 22 weeks showed that he was just slightly over a pound and has a perfect heartbeat. So far so good

I've actually lost 4 pounds

Hopeful Thoughts!

by LaffeyTaffey on 04-10-2013 at 09:42 AM
Well, I've done it. I've finally sent the bank statements (from when I was in High School) to my parents. They took the $4,000+ that I had saved without asking and didn't believe me when I told them so. Thus, copies of the bank statements have been sent to see if they will fullfill their promise of paying me back once I showed proof.

It's my money and i sure would love to use it to pay off my surgery! I guess I'll see just how "honest" they are. Thank goodness my dad makes

feeling blah earlier, but I have a goal now!

by LaffeyTaffey on 06-30-2012 at 03:05 PM
Earlier today, I found myself munching on some chips and queso dip while roaming through this amazing site and it hit me. What the heck am I doing sitting on my butt everyday before and after work when I have a Wii Fit Plus in the house?!*

So I turned it on, weighed myself (gained 3.5 pounds since 3 weeks ago. No surprise there), and looked at my history on my system. I started out weighing 293, went up to 299! Then back down to 288, etc. I'm disappointed with the fact that after
