    I'm doing really good actually healing nicely and feeling good. I can't wait for Friday to start my Cottage Cheese, Yogurt, unsweet Applesauce, and oatmeal and cream of wheat, also I can have loose mashed potatoes, so I am really looking forward to Friday!!! I'm glad to hear your hanging in there and doing better Deb.

    Hi Deb, just checking up on you to see how you were doing, I read your post and saw about your fever and all. I so hope you start feeling better, just try to keep in mind that our bodies are in shock from the Surgery this was a Major Surgery so you have to expect some changes to the body. Hang in there. Not sure if you read my Blog on the Protein Drinks you have got to try the EAS and the Atkins Protein Shakes oh they are so good, I just bought them today at Walmart you won't regret buying them that is for sure, they are already prepared and so delicious. Rest up and take care of yourself and get better soon. Lori

    Hope your surgery went well and you are recovering nicely. I am home from the hospital today, and am now on full fluids. Working on getting in my water and protein. Take care.

    Best wishes with your surgery!!
  7. Lori, thank you for the well wishes, and good luck to you, as well. I have to be to the hospital at 0600, so I'm hoping I'm my surgeons first, too. Let me know his you are when you get home. I'm taking my electronics with me, so if you get home before me I will see your posts. Again, good luck!

    Deb, I just wanted to wish you the very best tomorrow on your sleeve surgery. Mine is also tomorrow, I'm trying to keep my mind busy and thinking of other things other than the Surgery but very difficult to do. I'm not bringing any electronic devices with me into the Hospital so I won't be posting until I get back home. I am my surgeons first Surgery at 7:45AM I have to be at the Hospital at 5:30AM. I know they will have me up and walking in the afternoon seeing that my surgery is in the morning. So AGain Best of Luck to you. Lori

And 91 pounds gone! I have 8 pounds to go to goal and 7 to onederland. I don't regret this EVER!

ONEderland so close....

I'm 10 pounds away from onederland...it's so close I can almost touch it! I'm nine months post-op now and have lost 88 pounds and don't regret the decision one bit.

My hair loss has been minimal, but I've gotten my protein in every single day and have taken biotin faithfully, along with the other vitamins my surgeon told me to take. I'm down seven clothing sizes, I can buy underwear at VS or a regular store, no more Lane Bryant for me!

The husband and I went on vacation at the beginning of June, to St. Maarten. We scuba dive and I normally blow through air, but this trip I had dives that were over an hour! I Know it has to do with the weight loss.

AND I'm 13 pounds away from my goal weight and onederland!

Actually without the sleeve I never would have done this, but 82 pounds down today I participated in my first 5K, at age 56.

For the first time EVER I purchased underwear from Victoria's Secret! And at my six month check up I'm down 80 pounds.
