    Your weight loss journey is inspiring to me, and we have the same surgeon. I'd really like to have you as a 'friend' so I can be notified when you post things. I enjoy reading your posts and am interested in your successes!

    Yes, I'm great. Going to leave here at 9am, I'm only a hour and half away from San Diego.

    I think someone else did -- the blog she posted is now gone.

    I am not getting this...why am i so different from everyone else. I am on pureed food, i can eat a 1/2 cup of refired f/f beans, no problem, no pain, why am i not feeling a restriction, at all??

    I think I am most looking forward to scrambled eggs (egg beaters) they make them in individual cups now and I was eating them every day before my surgery, so I am looking forward to having a "normal" breakfast even if it is a 1/4 of the amount I was eating. At least I hope I will begin to feel a restriction with these foods as I could sure put away a lot of soup.

    Dede, I made it, I am home and everything is fine. No recovery issues at all. I was awake alert and walking most of the night and following day of surgery. I didn't even like that they kept confining me to my room with the stupid iv drips, I wanted to go explore Tijuana, because I got to see so little the first time. Monday I will be week 3 and get to begin pureed foods, so I am excited to be getting off the liquids. How about you, how are you doing??? What are you eating for pureed foods??

    Praying for you today.
  14. Good luck to you. I know you are anxious as I am too. I'm not having surgery until June 1st. Can't wait. My family is excited for me as they know how much I want this. Please keep me posted as we will only be two months apart and I am having my surgery done by Dr. Velasquez as well. Keep smiling!

    I went through True Results who used Peachtree Bariatrics as their surgeons. I thought Dr. Tuggle did a great job on my sleeve, but didn't really see her after the procedure. I felt like because I went through TR, they didn't really care if I showed up for appointments or not. I definitely do not regret using her or getting this procedure. I only went to my follow up appointments through July and haven't been back to see them since. I did have my vitamin levels checked in July and everything was perfect. I have been making sure I stick to my vitamins, water and protein and I haven't had any issues. I think you will be fine. I usually get very nauseous after having surgery, but the patch they gave me to put behind my ear and the stuff I had to take the morning of surgery helped a lot and I have never gotten sick since having the surgery. Let me know if you have specific questions. I'm happy to help in any way possible.

10 months out

by mrtumnus on 01-12-2017 at 01:45 PM
Well I am at the cusp of losing 100 pounds. I have lost 99 to be exact. I have about 28 more to go to be at what I consider my "perfect weight". I may modify that because I do not want to look ill. I do not measure or watch what I eat at all. (and I do not need comments about it either) I believe that I have learned a lot about what my body needs and I simply made a decision over everything I eat.right then and there. I think life is too short to quibble over every morsel and fret . I

Since March I have lost 90 pounds....37 to go!

by mrtumnus on 11-27-2016 at 07:23 PM
Wow! What a ride! I was thinking back to last year's holiday season and how miserable I was with my image...how hard it was to fit into clothes...how tired I was..how I had three chins....now I look back and am thankful for that period of time because I appreciate the 90 pound weight loss and all the work it took to accomplish this. I still have 37 more to go to reach my goal..which I hope to achieve at my 1 year mark. I would do this all over in a heart beat.

Have not been on in awhile

Gee whiz! I decided to add exercise to my forte and it has sloooowed down my weight loss..has taken me like 3 weeks to budge that scale 1 pound! Depressing! I have 48 more pounds to get rid of and this is my 7th month post op. I am though exercising 3 times a week..walking. I am up to about 12 miles per week at 18 minutes a mile. I suspect I am building muscle up which weighs more than fat. I wanted so badly to have 100 knocked off by Christmas, but I do not see that happening....SIGH. I could get

Walking Club

by mrtumnus on 09-23-2016 at 11:22 PM
I decided to join a local walking club because I felt after 6 months post op--I would add exercise to the mix and see how that would affect me. So far I have been in the club for 3 weeks and loving it. I plan on walking a 10k in February.
