    Hi, I just saw on someone's forum thread that you said you had hair regrowth sticking out. I found Aveda's smooth infusion really helped all that baby hair lay down. I cant promise it will work for everyone but for me it had been great.

    Just wanted to tell you that you look amazing! I had my surgery on 5/27 & reading your blogs today really motivated me to work a little harder! Good luck with the last few pounds!

    Hi Amanda, I was really pleased with the VGS process at Lahey. With all the appointments prior to the surgery, you really do feel like your living there. I'm still early in the after surgery process, so I still have my three months appointment to look forward to. I also attend the monthly weight loss surgery alumni meetings on the second Monday of the month - it keeps me informed of what to expect next.... My labs names are Marley (female chocolate lab, who lives up to her name) and Sadie (female black lab mix). Right now it is thundering out and both are hiding under the couch. Brave, brave dogs :-)

    Love your puppy avatar! I have two lab mixes (or I should say they own me).
    Noticed your surgeons name - I am a Lahey alumni as well.

    Thanks so much for asking about me! I feel great, like my sister said, I've had some good progress so far. I'm still having trouble with more solid foods, they just don't feel okay in my tummy lol. How are you doing?

    Thanks for asking! She's doing great! Has lost 36 pounds so far including what she lost pre-op! She feels great! She's my friend on here, thephoenixlullaby, but hasn't posted much yet! So glad you are doing well too! So excited for y'all!

    thank you. we love dogs so much. If I could manage 4 or 5 I would, but my wife stays at home. We're thinking about fostering a dog in the future.

2 Year Check-In

by amandajane on 05-24-2016 at 09:28 AM
Hi everyone! Wow- it has been a LONG TIME since I've logged on to this site and I have to say, it's exciting to read about all the "newbies" out there waiting to have their surgeries again. I guess once you've adjusted to your new life, you forget that there are still people out there who need your input and advice. This site was such a wealth of information when I was waiting for my surgery. I learned so much from the veterans who came before me and now, 2 years later, I am one of

Still "Overweight"

by amandajane on 11-20-2014 at 04:22 PM
Hi everyone! Well- I'm a little over 7 months out and things have really slowed down in the WL department, but I'm certainly not complaining. I'm losing about 3-4 lbs per month now and I can be up or down a lb at any point from one week to the next. But, I'm still plugging away with about 16 more lbs to lose until I reach my personal goal. I eat like a normal person, have my treats when I want them and am loving life.

OK- so now lets get to the thing that's ticking me off today-

6 Month Surgiversary!

by amandajane on 10-10-2014 at 09:06 AM
Happy 6 month surgiversary to me! Wow- time has gone by quickly! I really don't have too much to say other than I couldn't feel happier about myself or my decision to have this surgery. I am so proud of how far I have come b/c I never would've believed this was possible. I feel like the "light bulb" has come back on inside of me and I'm starting to look on the outside like the person I have always felt on the inside. I'm no longer someone who wants to sit in the house b/c I hate how

5 Month Update

by amandajane on 09-08-2014 at 04:17 PM
Hey-Hey! It's been a while since I've blogged but I'm still reading all of the progress ya'll are making and it's awesome to see! I'm going on my 22nd week post op so I just finished up my 5th month. Wow- What a ride! I wish I could grab all you newbies and give you insight into my brain for 5 minutes so you could see how amazing this is... honestly. I remember being you- so nervous and worried that I would be the "one" who didn't lose weight.. not understanding why I could get

Progress

by amandajane on 06-27-2014 at 08:32 AM
Happy Friday! Yesterday I was 11 weeks out from surgery and finally hit 50 lbs lost (30 since surgery and 20 on the pre-op diet). I am averaging about 10 lbs per month post surgery, which I think is awesome. I did stall ( like everyone else) right after week 2 post op, so for those of you who are going through that now- hang in there... it's not fun, but it will pass. But, this morning I was thinking to myself- "do you really SEE 50 lbs gone"? And my answer was "no"..
