    Hey there,
    I'm doing ok. Still have 1 drain, uggghhhh. I was in the hospital again a few weeks ago for another 4 days b/c I was "throwing up" every single time I ate. At my last doctor visit week befoe last he said I still had a slight infection and that the drain out put still had puss in it but he doesn't want me on antibiotics again b/c I was on soo many and such high doses before when I first came back. I'm down 58# now and am finally having more good days then bad days....Thanks for checking on me! How are you?

    Thanks, but I don't really have a date. I just can't find a way to state that on my profile! I will say, after starting over AGAIN, I'm probably much closer to having a date, but things are so screwed up in the rest of my life that I am putting it on hold because I don't want to have a nervous breakdown while trying to heal from surgery... I appreciate your support, though.

    I just have a question: I am % days postop and have been having terrible green (sorry!) diareah since last night. If I drink water, about 45 seconds later, it comes right through me. Did you experience this or know if it's normal? I'm getting scared.

    No, my surgery will not be until August/September, I just haven't adjusted my profile yet. I don't have a date yet...

    Thanks! Right now, I've a little bummed because I've had a mostly self-imposed setback. The surgeon I originally wanted has a really awful support staff (though they are all quite nice, they seem to lack some professional knowledge and conscientiousness), and the way they bill the anesthesiology isn't covered by my insurance, and their dietician is out of network as well. I don't want to spend more than $2K if I don't have to. BCBS says they cover 100% of every aspect of this surgery and the prerequisites, minus co-pays, for providers in their network.

    Thank you for your very kind message...it means a lot. No matter how prepared we think we are, the last few hours always give way to a little nervousness.

I am down 29lbs sense the 24th of Jan when I started my liquid diet. I truely miss caffeine. I think that is why I have been so tired. Plus trying to figure out what I my stomach's tallerance is. I am eating soft foods now. Malt-O-Meal is now a good choice for the ol belly. OMG!I was miserable all night. Some stuff makes you feel soooooo full. It's all about trial and error. All-In-All I feel pretty doggone good. I am starting to get my energy back, and I don't know about you but I am able to think better. Things are more clearer to me.

    thanks for the phone tip about using skype. I just downloaded it on my android phone and it looks like it will be a great alternative to more costly calling options.
  14. My personal trainer told me to walk a lot. She said that 35 to 40 minutes of cardio 4-5 times a week will help a lot

A Year in Maintenance and I'm Doing it!

by itsmytime on 11-14-2013 at 09:22 AM
So I'm almost 2 years post op. It's been wonderful. Last October when I hit maintenance I was cautiously excited. I was smaller than I'd been since high school back when I played every sport I could. I was wearing size 4's and 6's and feeling great. I was worried about the REAL test....maintaining my weight. That was always very hard for me to do in the past. Our large tummies were built so we could consume large amounts of food in times of feast because humanity dealt with so many famines. Our

Without All of you guys...Where would I be? The ramblings of an online support group junkie

by itsmytime on 09-16-2012 at 10:29 PM
Hey there-

Although I'm a member of several sleeve forums, this one is my favorite. Why? From the start, this is where I've gotten the most support. I live in an area where it's kind of small--and there are always people moving away. It's a military town. I used to be military so I know how it is. Friends come and go--and there aren't a lot of people around who know what we are going through. When I was contemplating the sleeve--I had so many people helping me on THIS SITE. When i

Going to Vegas with the family!

by itsmytime on 07-17-2012 at 02:09 AM
Well I'm about 5 1/2 months post op and I'm heading to Vegas with the family today. Not sleeping well tonight cuz of nerves. i've flown quite a few times but I still get anxiety-ridden every time :-). My husband and I went alone last summer and he'd never been before. He wants to take the kids to see the Blue Man Group (he absolutely loved those guys:-) and to see the V for Variety Show. I am excited to have a good time. May go down and gamble a bit at the casino but worried about temptations like

I'll be a son of a b*tch!

by itsmytime on 07-05-2012 at 03:22 AM
Just slipped on a pair of size 9/10's I had saved from the late 1990's! They were Tommy Hilfigers lol. Those f*ckers actually zipped up and buttoned. No sucking in and no wiggling! Those were a pair of pants I'd kept for a loooong time hoping to one day fit in them again. *Shocked*

Not minding the person in the reflection anymore...

by itsmytime on 06-23-2012 at 03:06 PM
About a month ago I started getting compliments on my weight loss. I hadn't really SEEN the change like I expected to. It took other people commenting on my weight loss for me to actually try to see the change. Clothes are different, face is different. I just was afraid to celebrate the weight loss because I didn't feel it was drastic enough. I started to take the time out finally to celebrate my changes. I am looking much slimmer. I caught a glimpse of myself in a reflection at the grocery store
