    Hi, I am up and down up to 5 - 10 lbs, I crave lots of sweets my down fall. I know I am working on that.
  2. I had surgery on August 27th, 2015. It was the best thing I ever did. I went by myself and didn't tell anyone but my best friend. Through youtube I discovered that 99% of us kind of regret it right after but feel great after losing a significant amount of weight, so don't lose faith if you regret it at first. All I can say is follow directions to the T because overeating is very painful and you don't want to stretch your stomach. Take biotin for minimal hair loss, drink your protein shakes and take your vitamins. Calcium 500-600 mg three times daily, two hours apart from your multi vitamin with an iron tablet, calcium binds to iron and it won't absorb. A sublingual vitamin B12 everyday (the stomach makes B12, and you just had 80% of it removed) and vitamin D3. 64 oz. of water daily. Never drink with meals because your stomach is now a funnel so it will push all the food right through and it will be painful, so wait to drink 15 minutes after every meal. Losing the weight is the best high and it spills over into the rest of your life. You will feel like you can accomplish anything. Initially you will lose weight fast so don't buy too many clothes. You will hit plateaus so don't get discouraged. Eat for nutrition and don't drink your calories. Eat protein first. Sugary and fatty foods make me sick. Remember psychologically you still want to eat the way you use to so educate yourself on-line. Good luck I know you'll be very happy with the results.

    I just got this information off the internet:
    Proof of Citizenship
    Americans without passports or special documents also can return across the border from Tijuana with two proofs of citizenship, according to Frommer's. The most common documents include a driver's license and birth certificate, though documents such as military identification also work. Travelers 18 and younger must have a birth certificate if they are crossing without a passport.

    Thank you for the helpful information. Unfortunately, since I leave Sunday, I will not have my passport. I'll bring other documents. My friend whose traveling with me went and was able to get back in the US with other documentation. I'll have several documents. I couldn't find my passport to get it renewed. Therefore, I'll have to take my chances.

    I'll be sure to bring the items you mentioned so that I'll have everything I need while there.

    How are you doing after the surgery? When did you have surgery? How much weight have you lost?

    Did something change that this would be required?

    Thank you that's very kind of you to say , to be honest it was both I have a horse so started riding more and walking the dog and mucking the horse out and that has all helped. I've not been to the gym or anything like that though . Good luck I'm sure you will do great .
