    Thank you for the kind words, it means a lot!

    Your pictures are an inspiration!
  2. You look awesome!!
  3. Love your before and after pictures. You look great!! Good job. How's the back??
  4. What great news. I am so glad that your back is doing better. You had a heck of time at the start. Doing well here too. I am up to about 900 calories a day and ensuring I get that all important protein. The Quest protein bars and chips are definitely the best. I am down 64 lbs, 26 more to go until I hit my goal weight. I just went under 200 and that was great. Wearing great clothes too!! My hosp program offers monthly group meetings that I attend. I enjoy the conversation. Keep in touch. We need to post pix. I am on FB as Janice Galgoci Pitkin, if you want to friend me.
  5. Hi Ruth, Haven't touched base with you in a bit. Hope your holidays were good. I am doing real good. Food is tasting good again, but thank goodness, I still can't eat a lot. I am hoping things stay like that. I saw my dietician today, she says I am right on track. I do need to increase my fluids and my protein. Something to work on. I find that diet 7up tastes best, even flat. I have lost 60 lbs in three monts and am really enjoying clothes again. I even bought 2 pairs of skinny jeans. Size 14, woot woot!! Hope you are doing as well. How is the back feeling?? Looking forward to hearing from you!! Jan
  6. So sorry to hear that. Glad you got to the hosp to fix the dehydration. Today I tried an egg again and this time no luck. Felt miserable and sorry I ate it. Didn't even eat half. After a little heaving I felt better. Back to liquids. Keep in touch
  7. How are you feeling. I had my surgery the week before yours. I am feeling awesome. I cannot believe it. All the fears I had did only reared their head for a few days. I am off nausea meds, only taking for heartburn. I have to watch my sugar intake. Yesterday I had an great protein day, but I definitely pushed the carb intake. Have to get low sugar peanut butter. It goes down easy and protein is high. I even ate half a scrambled egg. Getting fluids in is still hard. Let me know how you're doing. Jan

    Ncruthie....right not much longer! Im doing well just excited and ready to get there and get the surgery over with. We both have surgery next week. My thoughts and prayers will be with you. I'll be looking for your posts later that week to see how you are doing.
  12. Oh yes...counting it down and trying my best to stay on this diet. I have been exceedingly hungry today. No amount of water has helped

Getting closer!

I went yesterday for my History and Physical with my surgeon. I am 19 days away from surgery and getting more excited and nervous everyday. I have my EGD next Tuesday and things are finally starting to seem real! This is finally going to happen! I am ready for all the hard work that is going to come with having this surgery.
