    So good to hear things are going so well. My health is improving too. I had some labs with my internist but don't get full labs w/ my bariatric surgeon until 6 mos out. Before surgery I needed to go on a statin but had some side effects so stopped and now my cholesterol is fine so I don't have to take it now. I decreased my blood pressure med amount by half. Weight wise I am in a stall right now but it's b/c of me and the fact that I am eating more and snacking more. I find that I am still very hungry with the small amounts of food I ate before so I am eating a lot more. I am now trying to get back on board so to speak and be more accountable with what and how much I am eating. Despite this I am always so grateful that I don't feel like a bottom less pit anymore when I eat. I too have more energy. I am now shopping hip replacement doctors...one step at time.

    I have to second SAMom's statement that you indeed look amazing. Just wanted to say hello and see how it's going.

    OK �� Doing well. Still have pain at my waist and below but it is finally subsiding a bit. The doctor seemed more concerned than my one month visit but thinks it is a nerve issue and will eventually go away. The pain is too low to be my mini stomach according to him. My blood work came back great which was wonderful! My family has a history of diabetes so I was pleased that is out of the equation now!
    I’ve lost 50 lbs now and I’m happy with the pace. I so worry about hair loss but haven’t had that yet! I also worry about eventual weight gain. There was an interesting thread yesterday about weight gain that was really insightful and sobering. Will definitely commit it to memory!
    Keep up the great work. You look so GREAT! And I love your outfit! You and your family must be so proud of you!!!

    Not a lot....I'm in central oregon, so about 5 hours from seattle. I've been considering a weekend trip up there this summer though, so I'll let you know when. Now I have another reason to make it happen! YAY!

    Hi Lisa, I replied to your PM but I don't know if it got sent. This website is a little frustrating for me as I think I've sent something and then I don't see anything under sent. hmmm

    I've been doing great too! I'm on soft foods for another week. I can eat most things. Tonight I had chicken sliced small with teriyaki sauce. The bad thing is I couldn't eat anything else. I can see where vitamins are going to be important. I have walked a 10k and a relay race where I walked 8 miles. I've lost 25 pounds. When I read your post today I thought your experience is so similar to mine!! It felt like forever on liquids and pureed food, but in hindsight it has gone by quickly.
