    Monthly Weight Lost

    I loved seeing your results..even the + was impressive as you kept on going. Are your first 2 months unusual or do many lose that much? I'm preop and would love to have your success. Thanks for sharing. It is very encouraging and congrats. You are AWESOME!

    Tiny Violins

    Hang in there...I'm on day 2 of the liquid diet thing. I'm trying to stay away from people as much as possible. I didn't know about the hot lemon water. Have to give it a try. It's also good to know that it will get better. Waiting, waiting, waiting for the torture to be over. (hoping it does end)

    Medicine + Wls = Trouble

    I am diabetic and have concerns with my meds while losing weight. If my sugar levels go too low, it could result in coma or even death. My family is aware of my concerns and have promised to keep an eye out for me if I should become out of sorts. Luckily I have a great dr. but I'm still nervous. So glad yours has been straightened out.

    Any June Sleevers?

    I just made my ticker and so I think the way to change it is to go to the upper right hand side and click on the down arrow. Then click on My Ticker. There is an edit button. I noticed you had a surgery date ticker...I wonder if it will automatically change each day. I understand why the others wouldn't change becuase that varies person to person. Good luck. If I find out another way I'll let you know.

    Getting Nervous Yet?

    Yep...nervous! I was having nightmares but now before I go to sleep I think about what I will feel like once I've lost the weight. Sounds hokey (sp?) but it works.

    Post Op Vacation

    The doctors and staff at the bariatric center tell me I can return to work after 2 weeks but can't go on vacation. This sounds a little crazy to me. If I can go and work with 26 wild 7 year olds at 2 weeks, I'm wondering why I can't go and veg in a resort in Florida. I have an appointment tomorrow to discuss this with my doc. Any ideas?

    Here We Go!

    After being humilated at a teacher's inservice I decided something had to be done. In February we were supposed to work on the federal government's Common Core Curriculum when the planners of the inservice thought it would be clever to play with those words and work on our 'cores.' So we were asked to do pilates to start the session off. Well, once I'm on the ground, it isn't easy or pretty to get up again. A week later, I began the journey to WLS. It seems I've been trying to lose weight my whole life. I was a stick until about 4th grade. Ever since, I've been compared to all of my very athletic and thin siblings and relatives. I even had an uncle call me to congratulate me on the birth of my daughter who weighed 9 pounds. He ended the call with, "Have you lost any weight?" My reply was...9 pounds. In addition to wanting to be able to move, look and feel good, and reverse my diabetes, I need to be healthy for my children. I have a 20 year old who is an amazing athlete and an adorable 11 year old. Both are often embarassed of my size. They rarely say anything but I've seen and heard comments from others. I want to be able to do things with them and have the energy to keep up with them. I want to be active even into my 80's and 90's! So here we go!
