    Sorry to hear about the heart burn. And I am glad to hear it sounds like things are turning around for you. How are the liquids going? And I am wondering if you feel hungry at all? I leave in the am and my surgery is Monday 6-29-15. So I will let you know how it goes......I hope you continue to feel better and better
  8. Hi Guys!
    Not going to lie. The past few days have been really hard and trying. You for sure go though...what did I do to myself. I didn't want to come on here and complain...so I waited until I felt a bit better.
    I feel human today, and every minute gets better.
    I am one of the ones that has really bad heartburn though. Oh well...it has caused me to vomit a lot.

    After the procedure I was regretting doing it. My friend who had one over a year ago says the first day is the roughest. The next morning, I felt so much better. The big lesson I learned was to stay on top of my pain medicine and my Gas-X strips. I was feeling so much better that I cam home the day after surgery. I slept all night which was wonderful. In the hospital they were waking me up all the time all night long it felt like.

    The doctor said I did have a hernia that they repaired but everything else looked good.

    Now I am trying to squeeze in my liquid and protein. I tell you I feel like I am non-stop trying to drink something. I do like getting sugar free Popsicles and broth, I was so tired of my pre-surgery diet.

    How long till your surgery?

What did I do?

by jaimaroo on 02-13-2018 at 10:34 AM
I am 10 pounds over my goal weight. I feel sick about it. I have nightmares about having the rest of my stomach removed. I want to take 20 pounds off, and it it feels like the most awful and unattainable goal I have ever created. I can't even give myself credit for the 140 that I have lost because I am obsessed with these 20 pounds. I feel like a fat cow.
I am hoping that by saying this and putting it out there into the world I can start to do something about it.
I don't eat a lot...but

Accountability

by jaimaroo on 01-25-2017 at 10:41 AM
I feel fat. I have gained about 10 pounds back, and I feel sick about it. Some in my life said I look better with these 10 pounds and I was too thin. But...I see it as failing. I want to lose the 10 pounds again. I am about 1.5 years out, and I am happy with my weight loss, but I wonder if I am not meant to ever be done losing weight. Even when those 10 pounds were off...I was planning on losing 10 more. (I don't like that the BMI chart says I am overweight...those 10 pounds would put me as regular)

Self Check-In

by jaimaroo on 02-29-2016 at 02:04 PM
As I get close to my goal I am starting to really notice how much I have changed over the past 8 months. When you go through something so drastic it is hard not to notice old habits and patterns.
I never thought that I was a stress eater or had issues with food. My friends would even wonder how I was not "normal" sized. WELL I DID IT IN PRIVATE. I didn't even realize this until a few weeks ago when I was feeling stressed. My instinct was to stop at Dairy Queen and get a medium blizzard

Feeling sorry for myself

by jaimaroo on 11-23-2015 at 12:58 PM
I just want to get a few things off my chest...as I am feeling sorry for myself (not cool).
I am not celebrating the weight loss that I have had, instead I am dwelling on what is still to come. I have lost 101 pounds since the end of June. That should be exciting and fun, but instead I am stressed out about whether or not I will ever get to my goal. I worry that this is my end point that I am not destined to be "thin".
I fly to Chicago on Thanksgiving to see my mom and dad.

almost there

by jaimaroo on 06-25-2015 at 01:27 AM
Well I sitting in my hotel room ready for surgery tomorrow. I had a great dinner, swam, and just took the tiny pill to calm my nerves. I am mostly nervous because I lied to my parents. I am 38 years old and finally in charge of my own life. I knew my mom would not ever come to terms with Mexico...even though I was well researched. BUT now I feel just awful that I am having surgery in a foreign country tomorrow and my parents have no clue. I might call them afterwards and come clean....or maybe I
