    Hi Sunny!

    I've been up here since 2006 due to a job transfer. I lived in FL before that. It's been an interesting transition, as I have no family up here. I like the weather and Traverse City is pretty. Not sure this is where I want to spend the rest of my life though

    Wherebouts in NC? I love Asheville.

    Happy Thanksgiving to you !

    Thank you for friending me ...And where will you live when you come home to NC.... ? I am in the mountains some days it is a blessing and somedays I just get homesick!
  4. Yaaaay! I am SOOO glad you are doing good! I have to admit, I have been worried! lol Yep a sip is a sip, isn't it?? Burping.....hmmmm. I've had no problem with that, I'm a walking sitting burp factory! LOL Maybe gasx strips? Sherri, you have a super duper holiday too! (I'm 194 lbs this morning! That's 13 lbs since surgery 10 days ago!) (((Hugs to you too)))

    Hey! How are you doing? Thank you so much for your support and prayers! I am doing much better. I've learned a sip is a truly a sip! lol I'm so glad to be home! I wish I knew how to make myself burp. Sometimes I think I'd be much better if I could. If I don't talk to you, be sure to have a wonderful Thanksgiving! Thanks again for everything! (((Hugs)))
  6. I am feeling WONDERFUL! Little teeny bit of soreness at biggest incision- little bit of burping going on lol. But other than that, I feel great! And fingers crossed, I hope to be in Onederland tomorrow or the next day! This morning I was 200.6.
    Now, how are YOU feeling??? Don't be scared though...nervous is understandable. Your life is going to improve so much, Sherri! You're doing it for you and for your daughter. Can't give yourself or her a greater gift! You just try to prepare....I hope you'll be one of the lucky ones as far as pain goes, but expect the worse and hopefully you will be pleasantly surprised. When you wake up, just ask for ice chips and try to stay hydrated, that is hard when you feel like ****. Then ask for 1/2 a popsicle...mostly you feel so drymouthed and dehydrated. And don't try to be brave and avoid pain meds- ask when you start getting uncomfortable, don't let the pain get so bad its harder to control it!
    As you feel better, keep me posted! You'll be in my prayers, hon- know that in 4 or 5 days, you will feel 90% better or more!!!!! Remember, we're gonna ROCK! :-)

    Woohoo! How are you feeling? I can't sleep and my poor sister just might beat me up any second. LOL I feel like they already gave me the silly stuff! Sounds corny, but can't believe my pictures on the front of this site. I'm getting scared and nervous. Hope you've had a good day!

    Thanks for taking the time to reply. After I hit "send" I thought: "Duh Sherri! Of course she doesn't feel like answering your questions!" LOL Great job with getting your liquids in! Sounds like you're really doing well. Don't forget to get your rest!

Sooo Much Going On, But I'm Back and Better than Ever!

by sunnygirl_28734 on 01-12-2014 at 07:07 AM

It has been a few weeks since I posted or came on the forum, so much has happened since Christmas. Well, so much happened in 2013 actually, leading up to this post.0
We had a house fire Dec. 15, 2012 which displaced us for 5 months. So April we were back in our house, had replaced vehicles, belongings etc. Then my mother-in-law died the end of June. I had my surgery Nov. 15th, then on Dec. 1st my sister-in-law was found dead at her home.

NSV!!! (Whatever That Means!) LOL

by sunnygirl_28734 on 12-23-2013 at 01:07 PM
I see it and know it is about a goal reached, an exciting milestone along the journey, etc., but have no clue what N S V stands for!!!

But, mine is this: weighed myself yesterday morning. I'm down 4 lbs. in 6 days, bringing my total weight loss to................. da da da DAAAA (drum roll please!!!)

FIFTY POUNDS! 26 pre surgery, 24 in the past 38 days. I can not believe it. I'm hoping by the time I see my surgeon next on January 14th I will be in the 170s.

My Mystery Sleeve- I'll Figure it Out!

by sunnygirl_28734 on 12-20-2013 at 06:57 AM
I am a little over 4 wks. post op. I still haven't learned exactly how much to eat per meal but am doing far better than I was. STOP before you feel that pain telling you you went one bite too far! I still need to discipline myself to EXERCISE REGULARLY! Funny, when I do I feel so great! Five years ago I was exercising (cardio, upper/lower/core weight training, bicycling, 5ks) and I was totally addicted. But once you stop, it is so hard to get back into it. At least for me.
So, with

What a Day!

by sunnygirl_28734 on 12-16-2013 at 05:31 AM
Yesterday was interesting to say the least. I do have more energy, so it feels good to be productive around the house. And my exercise is steadily increasing (slowly). But on Friday, I developed itchy, dry red blotches and spots on the right side of my face, from nose to ear, chin to eye. (New makeup???) Saturday it was brighter red and I saw where it was appearing on my left cheek. Yesterday my forehead got involved. I bought some Burt Bees Buttermilk soap and scrubbed 3 times yesterday, then

PICS Before (Aug. 2013) and Today (3 wks Post Op)

by sunnygirl_28734 on 12-05-2013 at 04:12 PM
So I'm HAPPY with the results so far!!!! Can't believe I'm smiling though considering I had just thrown up a hard boiled egg!!! Gotta learn smaller bites, cause even though I "pureed" in my mouth, I divided into 3 swallows but swallows too close together. It was NOT pleasant! lol
