    You look great! Thanks for posting your pics. Gives me the inspiration that maybe I can do this. Wishing you continued success!
  7. I was in the hospital 3 days they said I could leave the second day but I wanted to stay one more just in case anything happened and to get the better meds from the hospital I went and stayed at my grandmas house for a few day's The day I got there was easy breezy but the next day was rough I took the liquid Vicodin my doctor gave me but it turns out Vicodin and I are NOT friends it made me very very sick..so my mom called the advice nurse and got me sea sick medicine that you put behind your ear and it helped I haven't taken and Vicodin since the doctor said to switch to children's Tylenol (liquid) and that has been great I have only taken it twice and it was enough.. It doesn't hurt anymore at all but I feel it It's a hard feeling to describe.. Not uncomfortable not painful maybe hollow? I don't know but no I do not regret this at all. I'm down almost 15lbs since surgery (1 week) and I'm feeling great. A lot of the people I read that say they regret it still have anesthesia in them and anesthesia makes you emotional/loopy. I cried a few times because of how nice my mom and grandma were weird! Haha The only thing I regret is I wish I could have just stopped eating I wish it didn't have to come down to surgery and that I could have done this on my own its a bummer but I am sooo glad I did this because I don't think I would have been able to do this on my own I was too far gone and I need this TOOL (not magic wand) to help me best of luck to you! You are going to be so happy!

    Thanks for wishing me luck! Do you mind if I ask how it has been for you? How long did you stay in the hospital? Do you regret your decision?

So I haven't posted anything in a while so I thought it would be a good time to do so. So all in all I have lost 79 lbs since surgery on may 29 I have lost 47lbs. Before surgery I was wearing a size 20 (but should have been wearing a 22) and yesterday I went to buy some jeans at forever 21 and I was a 14! so exciting!! I have introduced pretty much everything into my diet and I haven't had any problems. Well that's a lie the only thing I have a problem with are eggs. I don't think I will ever have
