    That's great information. I do log everything on my Baritastic App. I feel like I'm doing everything perfectly so I expect to lose quicker. I need to be more patient. I also need to workout more. I think being more active will help. Thanks for the feedback.

    Hi Christie13, thank you for your "welcome". I'm in awe of your progress and stand at the very beginning of my new life. I have made the decision, I have Dr Almanza assigned to me and am waiting on tender hooks to see if I will be accepted as a candidate. Best of luck to you on your journey!

    Weight loss is slowing down but at leastt it's going down and not up. I've lost19.3 pounds in 4 weeks. Trying not to get bored with eating the same thing all the time. Any meal plans you would like to share would be appreciated. Thanks for checking in.

    Thank you sweetie, I think I'll be healed this time. The surgeon said I had two leaks originally and one was healed all the way and the other was 90%, so I think I'll be healed all the way on the 8th.

    Yes, I think if we ran Zeke more and did not spike the ball to stop the clock the Green Bay game would have been a different result. Not sure I would want rookies to win the Super Bowl first year, now they will come back even more hungry! Jason Garret getting coach of the year made me almost vomit. Maybe if he wins a Super Bowl... I want to be a fan of Garret but he frustrates me. My surgery day is next Tuesday, meeting with surgeon and doing final blood work this afternoon. On day 11 of liquid diet, I actually started 1 day early as it was a Monday (lol). Have any good Italian recipes post VSG when I can start adding back normal foods? I am Italian as well. Rossi is my last name. Have a great day!

    I can tell from your profile photo that you are a very smart person! Love me some Cowboys!! Dak and Zeke were awesome this year. Felt bad for Tony but what a great season. My wife and I flew out for the final game at Texas Stadium against the Ravens several years ago. I also lived in Round Rock, TX in the early 2000's so went to many games but we stunk back then..... BTW, it is great that you are supporting many people with your experiences and guidance.

    Would you mind sharing your vitamin regimen, macros, and favorite proteins? I, too, am short (5'0") and my surgery is Feb 11th.

Escape Room-Long Night-Quickie Post

by Christie13 on 05-21-2017 at 06:44 PM
Just a quick post to say we had a great time at the Escape Room. I took a picture with the winner sign (before we even went in) but we did not escape. But we understand it a lot more so we are eager to do it again. It was definitely a lot of fun.



We went out to eat afterwards and had such poor service that the manager comped our full meal (there were 7 of us) and gave us each $10 gift cards because our server was such an ass. And

28 Weeks?!?!?!-Old Man Booty-Some Friendships Last Forever-

by Christie13 on 05-18-2017 at 08:36 PM
OMG!!! Where has the time gone? Today I am 28 weeks post op. It really flew by. Sitting here in my room all happy and healthy. Sometimes when people call me tiny I think...who are they talking about? Then I realize I am tiny. I haven't been tiny in forever yet here I am....tiny. I look thin. I know I am still technically 3 pounds from being out of the "overweight" BMI but I am calling BS on that one. I don't look one bit overweight. I have to double take almost every time that

Friendship-Life After Sleeve-Mother's Day

by Christie13 on 05-14-2017 at 03:48 PM
Happy Mother's Day!! It has been an amazing journey. My first Mother's Day in a very long time as a normal sized person. It is such a great feeling. Today I got up and we went and did our Sunday routine of my Starbucks and then groceries. My in laws had given me several beautiful flower plants for Mother's Day when we got together yesterday and celebrated. So after coming home I replanted all my flowers into my flower pots. I have not done that in years but since I cleaned out my garage last

TMI....Do not read if you are easily offended....a little jiggle giggle!

by Christie13 on 05-11-2017 at 09:45 PM
So I do know I have some extra skin. It doesn't look too bad and so far I can deal with it. Today I thought that my pants were bunched under my leg, it was actually some skin. LOL. At any rate, here is my TMI skin story. So looking in the mirror at my butt and thighs I grabbed some skin and pulled up and let it drop. Kind of laughed. Decided to shake my booty really hard and fast....you should have seen that flapping action that was going on. If I did it fast enough I could actually hear

TADAH!!! Goodbye 80 pounds!

by Christie13 on 05-06-2017 at 10:39 PM
Today was the day I officially hit my 80 lb milestone!! Eighty. Freaking. Pounds!!!! I mean, that is the size of a child. My youngest daughter weighs about that. I just lost her....off my body!! I feel so freaking awesome right now. Like the cool kid. LOL.

I will say that I have started to research thigh lift surgery out of curiosity and did not like what I saw. The results did not seem worth the pain, scars, or cost. (Other skin removal such as tummy tuck and arm lift
