    Hi Vanessa! Hope all is well? Any New lessons your learning lately? I have been thinking about exercise....and outdoors....and how much they add to my life. They were not really a part of it before, being a couch potato/food addict and all. I've also been thinking about how I don't want to ever take for granted the blessings of this health. Hope you are doing well...what is your weight loss? 100? I am sticking at 85 lost for now....and feeling great! Hope to lose another 15 by Oct 19 ---- surgiversary. Hugs!
  5. Hey Lori - thank you, i am pretty happy right now. Funny though, weighing in and seeing the scale say I lost 100 lbs. all I could think of was loosing 110 lbs.
    Slowed down this month because of back problems. Could not do my usually walking and routine, can't wait to get back to it though.
    Onward and upward!!!! TTYL Vanessa

    you are so great! I can't imagine sneaking up on 100 lbs lost like you must be right about now!! Congratulations dear!! I just hit 80 lbs today and though I am losing soooo much slower, I am still so very thankful!

    Have a lovely weekend Vanessa!

    that's incredible! 91 lbs.... I'm at 80 and so happy! so sister, it's time to get a new photo on here of you. I'm so proud of you. How do you feel? I feel completely "normal".... the first three months were grueling! all the special foods, and I kept thinking "what did I do to myself???!?!?... but nothing is better than when I walk in to a room where people havent seen me for awhile and they say, "look how SKINNY you are." skinny. that is not a word I thought I would EVER associate with me!!!
    and here's something that I realized today..........my fat girl catalogs came in the mail today. As I was looking through them, I realized the smallest size was a 14wp, and I'm in a 14/16 now.... so I chucked em with laughter! on to the smaller sizes. Amazing how much more stuff goodwill has in SIZE LARGE. (instead of 22/24)
    holy moly is right.

    keep on track! You are inspiration to me.............................we're in this together!

    Beach bums, watch out! This girl is heading to the beach in a 14 ........................not a moo moo.

  10. Speaking of seat belt extensions - I just came back from a trip to DC. I quietly asked the flight attendant for the extension when I got on the plane. She looked at me and said "I don't think you need it but here it is." I went to my seat. First tried to put on the regular one and HOLY MOLY - IT FIT AND I HAD TO PULL IT TIGHTER!!!! I had a moment where I almost teared up. She came by and said "I told you you didn't need it" and I just smiled like somebody had just given me money.

    91 lbs down!!!!!

    yeah for you my friend!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! tying my shoes and painting my own toenails now is super fantastic...............no longer have to ask my son to buckle my shoes ... hahaha! I'm in an 18 now, but sometimes a 16. Really great since I was in a 22/24. XL on the shirts still, but can squeeze into a large, if need be. my shoes all got too big too. that's wierd. I feel fantastic. yes, girl, post a new photo! I have to go now, heading to san diego for a few days... (I fly free because I retired from airline).... but I never travel. And today, I WON'T HAVE TO GET A SEATBELT EXTENSION! yeahhhhhhhhhhhhh

    HOw are you doing? How is the "finding balance" in it all going? I understand that thought process btw...I sometimes want to go on a walk but othertimes feel "compelled" to go on a walk because I know what kind of calories I can burn through myfitnesspal....I am at 70 lbs still...been there for about a month, but feeling pretty good. I had my 6 month appt and was so pleased with the results....lowered blood pressures and great numbers. Hope all is well!

Drinking and the Gastric Sleeve

by tprincess on 01-04-2012 at 11:21 PM
I have been searching for a reason not to drink when I eat. I hear different stories from different posts - it will cause your pouch to swell, is the most prevalent.

This is what I found today. Paste this into your browser to see the clip.


Hope it is helpful.

I Would Kill for a Coke

by tprincess on 12-29-2011 at 08:05 PM
I am telling you I would kill for a Coke sometimes. After eating (ever so little) I need to burp. I think burping must be a thing of the past because try as I may it just does not seem to happen for me. I get this feeling in my throat like a pipe or tube is stuck there and if I could just burp . . .

Why Don't I Want to Eat and Why the Strong Sense of Smell?

by tprincess on 12-27-2011 at 08:51 PM
A little research for those interested. Also for those pre-sleeved folks - some information on what is to come.

According to a published scientific research a hormone called “GHRELIN” makes people hungry, slows metabolism, and decreases the body’s ability to burn fat. This hormone is produced in the stomach. Gastric Sleeve operation removes the section of the stomach in which Ghrelin is produced. The non production of this hunger relating hormone results in preventing an increase

The Good The Bad and The Ugly

by tprincess on 12-26-2011 at 11:23 AM
The Good
Finally losing the weight after years and years of dieting. Looking into a mirror and not being disgusted with myself.

The Bad
Transitioning from regular stomach to abbreviated stomach. Feeling sick a lot of the times because I can't or just don't want to eat. Eating something that makes me sick afterwards. Not a routine sick but a sick like I might want to die sick. Trying to find food that will stick and satisfy me. Sense of smell so enhanced and intense
