    KhadijahRose reacted to thinathart in Dumping syndrome   
    At 8 months out, I wished I experienced dumping syndrome. I'm guessing once you are a little further out, you'll wish you had it too. Without it, it's easy to eat the things that got us to the point of needing surgery.

    KhadijahRose got a reaction from JillianMarie73 in The Undeniable Truth(s)   
    Good luck. You know, I understand exactly how you feel. For years I worked out 7 days a week an hour to 2 hours a day with very little weight loss. I did struggle with portion control and sweets but for the most part I was pretty under control. I would be beside myself when I'd worked out so hard and would gain, although I would chop it up to muscle gain (with a six foot one frame, I have more muscle than the average woman anyway), but I would still feel frustrated because it was the loss of pounds I was looking for. Anyway, I had my surgery March 28th of this year and so far I've lost 42 pounds. I think you, like so many of us who worked their butts off before getting the surgery, will be a great success story. Again, good luck to you and I hope for you all the success and triumphs that you can't even imagine :-)

    KhadijahRose got a reaction from ItsjustmeHQ in Idk should I eat everything I love now before the surgery?   
    I totally did! I didn't have any pre surgery requirements until 12 hours before surgery so I ate till my hearts desire. Went up 16 pounds by the end of it all but it was totally worth it because I had no cravings or real wants for anything afterwards and now 3 weeks out tomorrow I am down 35 pounds.

    KhadijahRose got a reaction from sastexan4u@yahoo.com in 5 days to surgery and I've caught a cold   
    I go in on Thursday, and I also have had a slight cold for the past week or so, talked to my surgical coordinator about it and she says as long as it has not effected your breathing, or is something bronchial then you should be fine. My surgeon won't do it if it's accompanied with a fever or bronchial issues.

    WOO HOOO!!!! Everyone seems to celebrate ONEderland, but seriously, where's the love for Twoderville? When I started at 360, Twoderville seemed almost impossible, let alone the elusive Onderland. BUT OMG, here I am at 280 and it's AWESOME!!! Accept the reality, it's REAL and YOU are making it happen!

    My faith teaches me that nothing happens without the will of God. And if it brings about good then you can rest assured that it is a blessing from God. It also reminds me that Satan is very aware of human consciousness and our fears. he (Satan) has been around a long time and knows what to whisper to a person to make them doubt a decision that might lead them to glorify God in a way they've never been capable of doing.
    Just imagine how wonderful it would be for you to not carry around a ton of weight, how much easier it would be for you to praise and worship God, how grateful of a servant you would become and how high your confidence would soar. Satan knows that if he can keep you in this state of mind in body (spirit) he can keep you away from God.
    God creates, man manipulates. If there is a tool out there that can help you reach your weight loss goals you should thank God for His mercy on those of us who thought we were doomed to this unhealthy state of physical self, that He has given us the knowledge to create the tools to cure ourselves.
    God bless you and keep you in a positive state of mind! :-D
