    KatieOkieDokie got a reaction from nglalainenin for a blog entry, Questions..?   
    Instead of asking these questions in the form..as I'm sure many of people have asked the same questions over and over. I thought I would ask them in a blog. So if you read this and know the answer please feel free to respond!
     
    My first question is about hunger. They say you don't feel hunger (actual hunger..not head hunger I understand that's something we may have to deal with for the rest of our lives). But actual hunger pain. Is that true? Do any of you whose had the surgery ever feel hunger pain? Actual hunger pain.
     
    Second how long after surgery did most of you start to feel more energetic? I don't mean from the surgery, or recovery, but from being big. When did you feel like you've lost that magic amount when you realized that hey I can breath more openly when I walk, and my heart doesn't feel like it's jumping out of my chest..I feel comfortable! I guess I imagine that it will feel like a huge weight has been lifted from my chest..because I walk around feeling like I have one on my chest. At least that's what I'm hoping for.
     
    Third.. what did it feel like the first time you put on a shirt, or pair pants you couldn't fit into before WLS? Did you cry? Did you jump up and down and get all excited! Something else I look forward to doing.
     
    Where did you first notice you had lost weight? Was it your face, hips, fingers?
     
    Ok enough questions.. lol Thanks to anyone who answers.

    Today is a great day to fill yourself with some spiritual vitamins, your body will thank you!!
     
     
    Vitamin T: TRUST
     
     
    Proverbs 3: 5-6 Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding, but in all your ways, acknowledge him,
    and he will direct your path!
     
     
    We must understand that God has all power, and that it is he who sustains our life. He has allowed all of us to be on this journeys path,
    so we must "Trust" that if "He brought us to it, he will see us through it!"
