    55 pounds lost!!!!

    Thank you!!!! I feel lighter tonight so I'm going to weigh myself in the morning when I wake up. I'm excited to see if I've lost anything besides the air in my head LOL
  3. Up the calories a bit, add a bit of healthy fats and make sure you're getting between 70 and 90 grams of protein a day. Cutting out fats leads to dry skin and dull hair, the body needs fats. I'm really NOT into the whole non-fat thing at all! Anyway, this is how I would kick start the body to lose again, just my 2cents.

    Hate to break this to you, but you can still get gallstones even w/o a gallbladder.

    Hairballs or Hairy Throat???

    I had this after surgery as well and it lasted for about a month. It seemed like it was going further back into my throat before finally subsiding totally. WEIRD feeling and yes, it felt like there was fur or hair on my tongue! Renee

  9. SO EXCITED! I weight myself on my 3 month surgiversary and yep, 55 pounds lost...WOOT! *happy dance!*
  10. I'm seriously not here to judge anyone but I honestly would hate to see a marriage end because of this. Not just because it's a marriage (as if that's not enough) but it seems to be a very religious topic for you both as well, since you mentioned prayer. It would be a bit different if, like some, your marriage was on the rocks. This is a major decision and hard as heck on a good day but with not only no support but total opposition, dang, this would be a very hard thing to do. On the other hand, I don't do well with ultimatums and especially one as blatantly controlling as "do it my way or do it alone!". Only you can decide what is right for you, I can only say what is or isn't right for me. I hope the prayers work Renee`

    12 things...

    Jane those are great! I giggled at # 8, why be picky, right? Renee`
  12. Guilty of this. Many times. In fact when I get weak I remember to eat normally and this is DANGEROUS...don't try this at home. I have so much acid reflux and heartburn going on that eating just plain hurts and Protein shakes kill me. Sometimes yeah, it's easier not to eat. I try to remember to eat every 2 hours but honestly with the fibro and chronic fatigue I sleep A LOT and then I wake up and have to get fluids in (which is a huge challenge for me) and by the time it's all said and done, there's really no time to eat. *shrugs* It's not easy.

  13. Was that Spoongal or something? I don't see her post anymore and when I first started here she was on a lot.

    Is the ACID forever now?

    ROFLMAO who wouldn't be after chasing down imaginary things all the time, LOTS of exercise! Maybe this should be moved to the fitness thread? LOL You rock! xoxo's, Renee`
  15. lol oddly enough I just said this hours ago on another thread. I'm not lying, like I said, I don't know either. There was a death. To be honest, since we aren't in the industry, we probably will never know the truth of it. I certainly wouldn't trust the coordinator, but maybe she's telling the truth, who knows? Unless there's an autopsy report (ew gross, I wouldn't look at it to be honest) we'll never know.
