    Good morning Teresa funny how our children are eh ! :-)
    I do have my Mums support but she is not on here on this forum that is another lady with a funny name :-)
    My Mum lives in the black mountains in France and I speak to her on Skype regularly. She encouraged me to do this which is good thing. How are you doing .. Isn't it great to be losing weight and becoming the real person we want to be?

    Thanks for your lovely message you sent. Yes Bariatric vitamins are an absolute must just before and after surgery. My hospital program told us that we had to research different companies intake Building Blocks Bariatric vitamins. They are chewable I think that is a must too. But there are all sorts of Bariatric vitamin sites so good luck and if you need and more info just message me or email me on starryknyght@frontier.com
    Now you see I learnt something too you take Biotin? Is that for your hair? I need to take some as my hair is already thin and I do fear it might drop out more than it is and it has been falling out a little.
    Good luck on your journey and do keep in touch love Hev (hev)

    First of all Congratulations on you weight loss! That is fantastic. You are becoming a stronger and healthier person. I don't think you are selfish, I think you are taking control of your life. I hope your daughter is supportive. Good luck on the rest of your journey and keep posting.

    Hi Teresa, I saw from your messages here that you have some issues with getting around for exercising. My doctor's office has some recommendations for exercises that are pretty low impact, with videos and such. Maybe you want to check them out? Here's a link: Exercise
  7. Since surgery about 50lbs.. I understand about the walking.. I have to still use a cane.. I had 3 surgeries on my foot and leg then on my neck.. so I am limited to what exercise I can do. I tried to add you as a friend.. the system wouldn't let me. Please feel free to add me.. I would love to talk

    thank you for your input, i am 54 with many medical problems, just even hurts to walk. I would like to be friends. How much have you lost so far may I ask?
  9. I understand.. I lost allot on my own before the surgery.. but I also know that I am a food addict... and always have gained it back. I had a loss in the family and started just that.. so I decided to have the surgery.. mine was paid out of pocket.. so Mexico was where I could afford it.. They gave me excellent care... no complaints other than I was scared being out of the country where almost no one spoke english. But its not as bad as it seems and others make it out.. not for me at least.. just the one thing i recommend and it seems to of helped me. follow to the T what the doc says to eat and not eat.. made the world of difference for me... i starved with no food for 14 days prior to surgery.. lol thought i was going to lose my mind.

    Hello Teresa, no I am getting my surgery done in Ottawa Ontario. I have been part of the WL clinic for over a year now. I have lost almost 60 pounds and will be starting my Optifast on the 10th of this month. I am nervous from the 'horror' stories and about the lose skin...but... anything is better then being trapped in this body of mine.

    Hello Teresa, My name is Teresa also, I am new and my surgery is May 1st 2013...I am nervous and anxious.. I have found every possible website on Gastric Sleeve surgery and look every day. I have become obsessed. I am looking forward to read your updates to see how you're doing.
    Teresa
  12. i have been so busy that I haven't even looked or checked anything online. It did go well... I wasn't sick.. just had the gas in my shoulder.. I hope it proves to be the best decision I have made thus far. Been walking as much as I can and it seems to be getting better by the day. I appreciate all you guys well wishes and I pray that your all hanging in and doing well.

I have tettered for so long on the edge of wonderland that I gave up and decided to put my scales away for a couple of months. With illness, exercise restrictions, meds, etc.. I just want to keep feeling better. So me and hubbs are off tomorrow for our anniversary trip to Chattanooga. Cant wait. We r adding zip lining this year. Im scared to death and cant wait at the same time!! Of course our staple is Rock City. This will b the first time in 4 years I can actually get thru Fat Man's Squeeze.

Hello to all! I hope you all are having great success! Many ups and downs to all this right? lol Boy I thought i had researched it all.. but no... since we are all different.. I finally found the "shake off" for my 3 stall.

I have been diagnosed with a disrupting and painful condition in my inner ear.. which after about $10,000 in medical bills I was given sedatives and nausea meds with a simple, thank you, it will take some more months to get better. So it has been

the good the bad and the ugly

by teresattt1 on 12-27-2013 at 06:58 PM
219 as of last Wednesday. Yay, that's the good! I have been going from specialists to doctors for a few months. Boo thats the bad ( NON gastric sleeve related ). Excess skin hang off me is gross and worrisome. Let's see.

The highpoint was today between doctor's appointments, I stepped into Cato's and bought an outfit in the Misses section. Sizes have stopped mattering, but this is something I haven't done since I was 20 years old.

Sickness set aside I feel blessed.

Stuck in the "almost" middle with ME !!!

by teresattt1 on 10-11-2013 at 09:13 AM
Where I work we are not, for the most part exposed to Clients... over all the years because I work at home 3 days a week.. I have always been able to find a way to avoid meeting them... I was good until 2011.. Late that year was our company's 40th anniversary. They decided to have a huge party and get all the clients in.. I was miserable because I knew it was coming.. and it did.. I was so humiliated from that experience, I placed the shirt we were all forced to wear at the back of my closet..
