    Hi Ashley!! I hope you will have a great holiday season too!
    here with all the strikes it's tricky to do anything...I had to take two weeks off work because I couldn't commute and driving is out of question! Anyway, hopefully I will find a train next week...
    Enjoy the holidays! take care!

    Happy Halloween Ashley!!
    There's no big fuss about Halloween in France. It started to be a bit more popular may be 15 years ago, with the influence of American TV/shows/movies, we can find a few items in supermarkets now.But it's really nothing compared to what I saw in the US.

    A few kids go trick and treat around, but many people don't have candies at home and give them fruits!

    Actually kids usually wear costums for Mardi gras...and we eat crepes....

    Same when we were in Taiwan, Halloween was not that popular either...

    I do miss Halloween....our best Halloween was in NYC, may be ten years ago... with the kids....we all had great costums and I loved the atmosphere even if it was freezing!

    I'm good ,I don't really write much on here but I do read about everyone and just haven't seen much of you on here so glad your doing good . I didn't really have much to lose but I have changed my outlook to being real . I am 59 years old and at 5'1" tall I have realized that being between 120 -125 I feel perfect .and so I don't have to freak out on trying to get smaller.

    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!

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 02:50 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!

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 02:05 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
