    Thanks for asking. Yes - I am doing great. Stalls have been short and the scale keeps going down. Still can't do potatoes but that's okay. Exercise has been inconsistent because of my knee. But I never planned on running a 10k. LOL

    How are you? Any food issues? I'm still keeping my diet rather limited.

    How do you keep yourself in a positive state with such limitations on what we can eat. I feel like I have put my body through such an extreme change. It is great to have other people to exchange ideas and thoughts with. I should do weekly or even monthly weigh in because I get discouraged if the scale doesn't change. Is your picture a recent one of you? You are very pretty.

    Better each day. I just found out my Thyroid medication needs to be adjusted. That is the hard part about taking medications and as we lose weight the constant adjustments. Haha I am stuck at 155. How are you going with your journey??

    I'm hanging in there. My side is sore but that is expected. Thank you so much for asking! How are you?

    I'm doing great! Purred and mushed food is going well....except grits which felt like a brick. I even chewed a very small bite of steak tonight and it went down fine. I get worried when I read posts of folks not losing weight. How are you???

    Mind if I ask you a question. How do you put all that additional information under your ticker, such as starting weight, day of surgery weight, 2 weeks post op weight, etc. I've tried, but I can't figure that out. Thanks!

    Thanks for checking on me. Things are going well. I'm down a total of 28-1/2 pounds from highest weight. No pain, no nausea. Almost feel guilty because it has been so easy for me. But I have to admit that I am an over achiever and go by the doctor's instructions like they were law.

    How are you doing? Any issues? Hope things are great.

About Emmers1974
Sleeved or not sleeved:
I have had a gastric sleeve.
My weight started to creep up at the age of 16 when I had my thyroid out b/c of a benign tumor but the damage was done and I've been hypo since! At 21 I had an almost fatal car accident-severe brain injury, broken neck & some other things but by the power of prayer, God and my stubborn streak I lived and made a full recovery :) The 2 year recovery period really screwed me up weight wise and I haven't been under 300 lbs in over 12 years. Actually I got to 275 for about 4 months in 2011 but couldn't lose anymore and went right back over 300.

Pre-surgery: Daily swelling of ankles, high BP, mild to moderate sleep apnea, pre-diabetic (sugar ran 122-125), joint pain all over my body

Post-surgery: My skinny ankles are back, no joint pain (I've been off Celebrex since end of April), my sugars are running in the 80s
Cincinnati, Ohio

Height: 5'10
Highest weight ever (Nov 2013): 343
Day of surgery: 320
