    You appear to have done EXACTLY what I'd like to do.

    I used to lift in high school and REALLY miss it, once I've lost enough weight to do squats again I'll be in heaven!!!

    Anyway, congratulations on your wonderful loss! I hope to emulate you

    You look wonderfully buff, but I must say, I hope to look like your "before" picture someday! LOL

    I broke down and regretted it too, if you recall haha. But 7 days out and I'm beginning to feel like me again. I think now that I'm seeing the results... I'm starting to forget the nausea and anesthesia effects. Hope you keep doing well. Keep me posted on your loss, I'll do the same.
  4. Well it's been up and down. I think all would have been fine but I had a horrible reaction to the adhesive on the tape. Broke out in an awful rash on my entire abdomen area and where the IV was. Could definitely tell the change when the nursing staff switched over. I actually had to walk up to their room because they were not answering the phone. My husband went and got stuff for my rash because they weren't too concerned but by the time the nurses did come back it was full blown and awful. The gave me a cortizone shot and a nausea shot. One in the butt and one in my arm since I had them take my IV out last night because my arm starred to break out first. But all was eventually taken care of and I am feeling great now. Ready to face the 6 hr flight home. I'm looking forward to the next couple of weeks journey. I will admit there were times I broke down and regretted my decision in the moment but I am still very happy that I have had it done and excited about the future. The hotel staff is great. The two Bellman Alonzo and can't remember the other are great and are there at your service when you call.

  7. I have to say everything has been great so far. The hospital, the staff at hospital and hotel. I feel great considering. If it keeps up this way for the rest of the trip I will be one very satisfied patient. ��

Ready to get to the hotel to see my husband. From what here he is enjoying his time at the hotel and walking around eating authentic Mexican. ��

    My surgery is on the 13th. I'm getting nervous. Are you coming alone too? Maybe we will see each other. It would be nice to have someone to talk to about all of this.

4 Weeks Out

by ebbbdawsons on 02-11-2016 at 06:33 PM
Well it was 4 weeks yesterday and I have to say others are seeing the changes more than I am. Everyone at work swears I am getting smaller every day but I am not seeing it on the scale. I have hit the 3 week stall and I was expecting it and can logically explain it to myself since I am pumping my body full of vitamins, supplements and protein on top of actually eating something instead of drinking 24/7 but even though I was prepared, it's still disappointing. I am at 25 lbs down, which is great,

10 Days Until Surgery Everyone keeps asking me why I am doing it and now I am questioning my decision

by ebbbdawsons on 01-04-2016 at 12:44 PM
My husband tells me at dinner last night that he is going to miss my hot body. It made me cry. I don't feel hot at all and it is a daily struggle for me to feel confident about myself. I go to the gym at least 4 days a wk sometimes 5 or 6 but I am a big girl.(in my opinion) I have a large bust area, a big butt and thighs and tiny waist and flat stomach. That apparently is what my husband likes. He said he is going to miss my butt and thighs, but those are the two things I hate the most and
