    Hi GeriP510,

    I have to agree with Sunnybell, people do tend to give their opinions quite freely lol. That is why I chose not to tell anyone that I had the surgery. I'm 5'1" and my starting weight was 189 lbs, basically an Umpa Lumpa lol. I dropped down to 111 lbs but have now stabilized at 116 lbs. I have been told "you lost too much", "don't lose any more", "you're too skinny", etc, etc, but I feel better than I ever have and look pretty darn good if you ask me

    Don't let anyone's opinion stray you from your goal, which aside from losing a few is to feel great about yourself. Trust your instincts and your body. Be healthy and happy. You are doing great and the rest is just white noise

    And that's my opinion lol
    All the best
  3. Hi GeriP510
    I am 5'2" tall.
    My goal was 160, but my body chose 143. I have been this weight for about 6-8 months.
    People have a tendency to speak when their opinion was not requested and I have found many a accustomed to us at the wwight we were and have a hard time wrapping their minds around the new healthier bodies. I say get to where it is healthy for you!! Hope this helps!!!!
  4. Amazing. If you don't mind me asking, how tall are you? I only ask because I was the the same starting weight & I think anywhere under 150lbs would make me look sick. In fact, yesterday I was told by a 2 co-workers to stop losing and don't get a bobble head, lol.
  5. Great Progress you are doing!! You are an example to us newbies for sure!!

On my way!!!

by Sunnybell on 01-28-2015 at 10:17 AM
hello again!!! We are on our way to San Diego. I am very ready and actually looking forward to being done and back home with my family.
I can feel all the prayers from all my friends and family and all the sweet phone calls yesterday were wonderful!
Okay so the 5 day pre op diet was a bit rough...but the broth is a big friend of mine, and I did take advantage of my few bites of chicken each night. The sugar free Jello was great too, I think because I used a spoon so it seemed like

Starting pre-op diet today

by Sunnybell on 01-24-2015 at 03:21 PM
i chose to have a small food funeral the last two days. 1) it reminded me why I quit eating all that junk I felt horrible. 2) I gained 2.5 lbs 😭. But today is a new day!!!!
Sooo, liquids today! I am stocked up. I have chosen a verse for my journey Romans 12:2 "and be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that YE may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God."
I believe that this transformation is
