    Had my sleeve surgery on August 3rd...no hospital stay...hate chocolate shakes...abhor fake sugar...have a new allergy to peanuts...5 days post op and life is definitely different but no regrets! To lose the weight and keep it off...I will have to do my research and develop a plan that will work for me to sustain a healthy lifestyle to benefit myself and my family. No excuses and no guilt! I will not waste this fresh start! And...I have always dreamed of becoming a runner! Big dream but it is a possibility that I am definitely going to explore when the pain subsides!

    I wonder what life would be like if everyone dumped. I just ate a few too many (oreo double stuff) cookies and feel like absolute shite. Can you imagine what the food industry would be like if everyone experienced this? Something tells me that we would all be much healthier.

    New found appreciation for you all! So Im back in the US to take care of my aging father and it seems like more than ever that being bigger is the norm everywhere here. I cant say that Ive been the best, healthiest me at the moment, but I think you all Americans are doing GREAT to even be working towards the goal of getting healthier in face of all this temptation (even if you are a "slow loser"). So give all yourselves a pat on the back!

    6 Weeks Post Op! My world is drastically different! I now walk 3 to 4 miles a day and I’m constantly getting up to move my body! . I close my Apple Watch rings daily and about 4 to 6 days a week I double or triple them! I have been released to have all foods. When I reintroduce some I need to start at 1 ounce to see how “Tiny Tummy” likes it! I am not reintroducing sugars, coffee or junk! I did not pay close to $13,000 to fail! . I went to get follow up bloodwork done this week and my numbers are all in the perfect range! . This is my new world and I am happy it!

    I really thought we had put all the "you are so skinny, are you sick" comments behind us. Apparently not. My mom, MY MOM! came over today with the specific intention to tell me that she thinks I am too skinny and to stop losing weight. I had dropped off some dessert a her place the other day and she said she had to come over to tell me that she is worried because she thinks that I am even skinnier than over the Xmas holidays. First, I stopped losing weight 6+ months ago. Second, I am actually 6 lbs heavier than I was over xmas (I had lost some weight after my PS, and have since gained it back), so I don't know what she is talking about. Third, I look awesome. 🙄
