    Hi all! i was active a while back but life had other plans. Ive been the primary caretaker for my 91 year old father so ive been busy dealing with that. I decided to drop back in and see what's happening. I'm about to reach that 5 year milestone! Yea! My surgery was in March of 2015. get some information and give some encouragement. I did get turned off because the tone got real negative for a while. I dislike alot of negativity. I hope its gotten better.

    I'm guessing the beginning of the school years is busy for most of us, also with bad light/Fall many have SAD (seasonal affective disorder) I know I'm more tired..

    i agree, not much new lately, but I am so glad that all of you who have answered this are still here, as you are all an inspiration to me. Maybe I too spend too much time on my computer. I am off to Ethiopia on Sunday and will report back once I have returned home.

    jerzey! So good to "see" you. I know that this board is part of my maintenance journey. I need to poke my head in just to make sure that I stay accountable. People are not here or, are not posting as steadily as they used to. Good thing is, there are still newbies coming in, so that's a good thing.

    It has been SUPER boring lately. For weeks the "Latest Activity" stays the same. Don't know why. Probably shows I should get off my butt and quit playing on the computer all the time.

    It has been very quiet lately. Perhaps bariatric surgery isn't such a "big deal" these days and people feel that they are able to talk about more freely to friends and family.
    I come here because you all understand what it is like to be fat and to want to do something about it. It's an ongoing journey and there can be bumps along the way so it's nice to know that there are friends on here that I can talk to.

    Hi Everyone! Hope you all had a great Thanksgiving! The cleanse sounds like a good idea. I'm struggling!

    Seven years, you win the prize! Happy to hear things are going well. I found the secret for Thanksgiving this year, do all the cooking. By dinner time you are so exhausted nothing tastes good. Great holiday if someone else does all the work. I guess I sound like the Grinch!!

    Happy Thanksgiving to you.
    Really nice to hear success stories from those that are many years ahead of most of the rest of us.

    Happy birthday, Jerzey. You are one of my true heroes along this path.

    My Thanksgiving plan is similar: "Eat small portions of everything and don't take any food home!"

    Please let us know how your two-week "cleanse" (ha!) regimen goes. I'd like to hear about it.

    Awesome to hear good news from someone that far out. I love that you are now working to inspire others. I have DM1 and realized I needed the weight off. Went on an insulin pump last year and had a hysterectomy...so I guess I am cleaning house, literally. My husband had the sleeve in December of last year and has lost over 100 lbs. Surgery date should be in Nov or Dec. I too am in the medical field....sometimes knowing too much is not a plus. Anyhow....thank you so much for your post!

    Congratulations, jerzeygirl. <3

    You are such an awesome inspiration!

    Thank you for continuing to be here on the boards after all the years. Most people stop posting, so it's especially nice to see someone who has lost as much as you have and kept it off STILL active here on the site.

    Your experience as a successful sleever should give you more credibility since you've "been there done that". Congratulations

    Congratulations! I have thought about asking my Dr's office about something similar, so I am encouraged that someone not only had the same thought, but made it happen!
