  1. Nsv!

    Here is a NSV for me. If you are a schoolteacher, you know about the student desks, where the desk and chair are connected. Well, usually when I sit in one, I have to brace myself, and kind of get me and all my people (stomach) in to sit down. I had a meeting yesterday, and just sat down without even thinking about it. When I realized, about 10 minutes into the meeting, I couldn't believe it. I even had space between myself and the desk--like everyone else has!!! Made me feel kinda good!
  2. Here is a POSITIVE POST!

    Hi All,

    I really don't have that much to report--at least nothing new. I was sitting here trying to eat 2 oz of chicken and spinach, and guess what? I can't even finish it!

I've tried it twice, and it just doesn't taste the same, so I am letting it go for now!

She said don't count calories or protein grams or anything. She ...
  4. Does this sound like a stall?

    Well, Iím 16 days out and Iím wondering if I have encountered my first stall. Now I know what all the drama is about. Even though I said I wouldnít weigh every day, I lied, and have enjoyed watching that scale move down a pound every day. It was a wonderful thing. The last few days, Iíve been at a stand still and of course, I immediately said ďis that all Iím going to lose? Is sleevie broken?Ē Still trying to remain calm, but hoping that scale will move soon.

    I havenít been having ...
  5. One Week Post Op Appointment

    Hello All,
    Today I had my first post op appointment with my surgeon. He removed all of the tape from my incisions--Ouch! He said that everything looked good and that he would see me in two weeks! I got on the scale and the scale made me happy. I am down 15 pounds! wow, I have not ever lost 15 pounds so quickly before.

    Next, I had to see the nutritionist, who moved me on to Stage 2--woot woot! She said that it was important for me to still drink the protein drinks ...
