    Hey Vegimen. I hope you're doing well. *sigh* I'm still trying to resist the carbs---not hard enough, I guess. In fact--I know I'm not trying hard enough. Keep thinking I've still got time. That's what I've told myself for years, though.....Take care.

    My weight has been at 228 lbs AT LEAST the whole month of December! But I feel good about my 56 pounds total loss this year; 39 lost since surgery. I'm ready to see more progress! Take care.

    Hey Vegimen! Been eating too much over the holidays. My weight is at a stand-still now, but I know what I need to do. I'll be glad when I can get back into my usual routine. How're things going with you?

    I went back to work last week and have been so overwhelmed and busy trying to get back in the swing of things. I'm still around and I appreciate the concern!

    Thanks for the sweet note! Sorry I'm so late responding but life has been crazy here. How are you feeling? It will get better! If you're feeling sluggish then more protein is definitely the answer. I've learned that the hard way. It's wonderful feeling lighter! I used to wear a 4x shirt or size 28. I'm happy to report I'm in a x large or 1x and I'm still in total shock! I've never been one to get cold and hated sweatshirts, but I stay cold and I love my sweatshirts and hoodies. You are going to love it! I would buy one or two tops each week because I knew I would be buying smaller ones in just a few weeks. Your energy level will increase and you'll be amazed at the things you can do again. Keep in touch and keep up the great work!!! You've got this

    Thank you for friending me, I am not often on here but have just read your page and you sound lovely .. My own kind of beautiful ..you said.. What a great phrase. You are right even when we are big we are still beautiful even when we have lost our confidence ... I have found mine and I feel so much better now.. You will too. Just stick with the rules and it works.. It is just a tool. I have written much on my blog if you go back to march of 2013 and maybe some of it might help you, who knows. I don't have much more to say as I have said so much. But good luck with your journey and write any time. As it will pop up on my email. All the best Hev :-))

    Thank you Vegimen. I'm trying!
  15. You are doing GREAT in such a short time. I'm a little (lot) older...lol...I'm 63 and looking at my own immortality and trying to get healthy. I don't want to miss out on watching my grandbabies grow up. I have three (2 8 yr olds and a 6 mo old). My kids kinda started late; getting their careers in order first. Which I'm glad of, but which they had started sooner. I'm finding this site very informative and supportive. Good luck to you. Connie

Not a Dr or a Nurse ,But this helped with the Surgical Sites,

by Vegimen1962 on 09-25-2014 at 12:23 PM
Just wanted to Share this Tidbit: When I had my daughter, I was told to rest and relax: Did I Listen??? NODDA, I tore my Staples and ended up with a Nasty infection and Had to Have the areas Incised and Drain and had to pack sites Daily with Nu Gauze To act like a drain for a week, Did I Learn my lesson??? HELL TO THE YES....So with the sleeve I wasn't going to Make that Mistake Again. Listen to The Dr, I felt a little Protected of the sites, On Day 3,or 4 I bought a Large 6-8"Gauze Wrap.
