  1. in the last 3 months i have lost a total of 63 pounds!!! yipeeeeee lol. i went from a size 20 to 14 or sometimes a 12. from a 3x to sometimes a large or medium. im so excited and happy of my progress. many people dont even recognize me, and i'm suprise because i personally havent seen myself as a big differance. well anyways i'm super happy. i can finally stop shopping in the plus size section and shop in regular sizes. my only problem is my arms they just dont want to go!! but i wont give up :smile1:
  2. Im a self proclaim stretch mark lady lol. I have it in my arms n stomach. Now that im losing weight I am starting to have even more! I tried palmers oil n it was working, but in one arm I started to have terrible rashes in one arm so I stoped using it. Are there any suggestions for my condition? thanks!
  3. I start my last semester of college next wednesday. I had surgery on 8/15. I still get a bit of pain at times. My commute to school is long. I take 2 trains(nyc) n it takes me an 1 1/2 hours. I know im going to be feeling weird. how do I handle if I get any pain? Also, what do I tell people about my weight loss throughout the semester? Please help, thanks <3
  4. before surgery I had lost 52 pounds on my own, after surgery I have lost 22 pounds. When I try my size 18 jeans I still cant fit in them! from the waist up I have been losing, but my theighs remain the same (big hips run in my family). Did anybody else have this issue? Will I ever stop wearing size 20?
  5. I'm 9 days post op. I love dancing and going out. When do you think is the apropriate time to do so? do I have to wait a month to hit the clubs?
  6. Im in the same situation. I cant really tolerate much. I became lactous and tolerant, so im unable to drink my protein shakes. Im glad this will get better.
  7. Congradulations!!!! Keep up the good work
  8. Im 5 days post op, and since I returned home im unable to finish a small cup of juice or even water. When I drink carnation instant breakfest and slimfast shake, I can only drink 3 sips until I start getting gas. Im soooo hungry but there is notthing else in this house that I can take. I'm tired of just drinking. Just thinking that I have to wait 2 more weeks until I can eat purred food is driving me insane. I sleep all day to see if this hunger would pass. Im tired of eating broth too. Is there any other things I can take?
  9. Im 3 days post op and these gases are terrible. I drank some chicken broth and that seem to help a bit. My doctor only reccomended walking, but that didnt seem to work much. I can wait for this uncomfortable feeling to go away.
  10. Good luck!!!!! Im also having surgery tommorow. I told my mom I wasnt going to sleep tonight; I have to be up by 3 anyways so whats the point. I went out with family last night, and it was like I was celebrating the old me. I'm just here in my bed thinking of what to do to make time goes faster, im so excited!! GOOD LUCK AGAIN
  11. Thanks I feel much better. @dadams2102008 I wish u luck on your surgery
  12. Today is the day before the surgery and im freaking out. Its not because im getting the surgery, but because im afraid my liver is still big and my doctors say they wont do it. I have been staying away from the foods not allowed, but on occasions I would eat a little bit of cheese. Last night I went to a fashion show/ party and they were serving pizza. I brought a slice home for my brother, and I took a bite than I just threw the slice in the fridge, and went to sleep. Besides those two mistakes I have been doing fine, I even lost weight. What do you guys think, will this affect me?
  13. Im doing liquid and low carb vegtables diet.
  14. Im aware of that. I've changed my eating habits and started to become more active. my lifestyle has definetly changed
