    Good luck to you Becca! I have lost 5lbs and would like to lose another five to get back to the weight I've been for the last few years before gaining the 10lbs this year. You know what they say though, those last five pounds are stubborn! I will be happy at 130 although ideally I should be 120-125. I think I look great at 130 though so I'm not too worried about it. I hope you have a lot of success. I am the opposite of a sun girl haha. And I live in the sunshine state. But I avoid the sun like a vampire and my skin is so white that it's almost translucent.

    Hello becca. I saw your message on my profile. I know it is old but I wanted to respond anyway. It looks like you are doing incredibly well! I did manage to get down to my goal weight (125) but I settled at 130 after doing the mommy makeover. I have been perfectly content at that weight but then recently gained 10lbs! Eep. I am coming up on three years since my surgery so I know that gain weight is typical (and scary). It looks like you are doing very well yourself. I want to wish you continued success and hope you are doing well and thank you for the kind message.

    Thank you so much. I'm sure you know how much that means. You look like a totally different person.
    Ever since I read you post this morning I've been excited about going to the office tomorrow to get a start on help for the next time I struggle.
    Where are you located in Northern California? I live about 30 miles West of Portland in the little town of Manning (near the little bigger town of Banks).
    I'm going to send you a friend request and perhaps we can stay in touch.
    How are you doing?

Starting Over

by butterflybecca on 02-02-2019 at 07:51 PM

Hello all. WOW it's been way too long since I've even visited this page. SO much has happened in life causing me to fall back into old habits which caused a 50lb weight gain. So friends, be careful because the weight can come back. My first gain was during my first asthma attack in 2013 during spring. Severe enough to cause two rounds of prednisone treatment. This "miracle drug" does wonders for asthma, however it causes great hunger in me. During this time, I was bed bound and
