  1. Re-committing

    Hey All,

    I've been away from this forum for months. My life has had some major ups and downs and I feel like my weight has followed suit. About 7 months out, I started eating sweets and stopped losing weight. Just like that, it was very easy to get into bad habits. I followed the protein and veggies first but carbs crept in...and candy and so on. I got down to about 152 after being sick with a flu bug in November and then slowly gained about 5 pounds over the holidays and then ...
  2. My rescue surgery

    After months of pain and suffering I finally got my surgery Friday, five days ago.

    My sleeve was working fine and my weight great until (long story short for those who didn't follow) my monthly very heavy bleeding became so bad I became very anemic, got several issues from it, I got several infections in October, then from lung infections asthma started, then it became hell.

    During a really bad series of asthma attacks I had huge pain in the chest on Nov 7, a few ...
  3. 5 YEARS OUT--regain after baby-- accountability

    Hello---
    I had my sleeve back in May 2014 & it was the best decision I could have made! I learned so many wonderful habits that I still use today--- I still read almost every nutrition label & make sure I get my water in!

I've slowly been losing and am proud to say that I have lost 47 of the 75 that ...
  4. Surgery on Friday!!

    After meeting with two new surgeons in May, I saw again one of those two on Monday, but at the same time also organized an appointment with an other "rescue" surgeon, but this time working in a private hospital.
    Long story short, I always preferred going for public hospitals but couldn't cope any longer!!

    When the fourth surgeon (public) said "it was going to be complicated and I needed to do more exams" ....then she said I was going to have surgery in October ...
  5. Almost down 130 Pounds!

    I got on the scale this morning and nearly went into shock! I haven't been this low a weight since 1977... I am 4 pounds away from what I weighed walking down the aisle when I got married... and I was thin back then. I am thin now and have to do double takes, still, when I see the scale numbers or see myself in the mirror.

    I have stuck to my new way of eating and have allowed myself to have a scoop of ice cream here and there, and occasionally I will have bread or something I don't ...
