    Hi all
    I am also doing well, I am back in track already lost 20 pounds from the 40 I gained and after that I will try to get to my original goal, it is not easy but possible and we have the advantage that others don't have we have our tool and we have to put it to work ..

    I am doing well. wore my size 6 jeans to a birthday party then we went out to karoke and dancing . it was a cool evening so I got to wear my boots too. my tummy is so flat, I am very pleased. my incisions are healing well a little tender in some parts but overall I am doing really good. Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend.

    thank you so much. I am feeling good and hope it continues. I had a few really tired days and just stayed in bed. Thankfully my guy doesn't mind cooking and taking care of things. I am very blessed to have come through the lapband process and the skin surgery and be happy with both.

    I totally take responsibility for any and all of my health issues caused by being obese My diabetes has been gone for years but before that it was a daily chore to keep it normal. scared the hell out of me , high blood pressure is not joke either, can cause strokes, etc. so much healthier now than I was before band. update on panni surgery, drains are out. still sore, went out last night for a little music and dancing (not too much ) but got tired really quick. We came home early and I haven't been up much today, Bob made me promise I would keep it down today. He really didn't want to go out last night but I had cabin fever.
    so, he gave in and took me out .. he has been so good taking care of me. hope everyone is healing well. got no big plans this weekend except try to get back to normal. P.S the surgery was totally worth it.

    Good news, (and we want to see a pic from the upcoming graduation [emoji310]
    next month .)
    Thanks for reminding me to be thankful that 95% of my clothes fit 95% the time.
    I forget how I used to have such a wide range of sizes because I was such a wide range of body shapes.

    Sharpie now has a teenagers flat stomach... wow..happy for you..(a bit on the painful side?)
    . life keeps changing
    And I hope we keep healing ladies.

    Julie, Sharpie and gowalking, (hugs) and peaceful, healing thoughts sent your way.

    I am headed into a buffet now as a belated birthday celebration with my best friend. No worries about overeating.

    I put on my heels and a dress. I wear a dress about once or twice a year. It's a miracle that the same dress that fit for me last spring fits today. Even a little better.

    I had a mammogram this morning. My tech asked if I'd lost weight since last March. I said yes, maybe 15-20 pounds. She said my breasts are smaller. Lol.

    Sometimes it's the passing of a year that helps me see the growth and recovery I have. I'm still stunned that my closet has the same clothes in it as last year.

    I do have to buy a new dress though, because my younger daughter graduates college next month. I don't want the photos to look the same as last year's pics when her sister graduated from the same school in the same robe.

    I love the "problems" I have today.

    Thank You . I am truly blessed to have found another wonderful man in my life. My husband of 39 years was a wonderful husband, father and grandfather and I did not think I would find someone else at my age like that. Bob came along like it was meant to be. He said the Lord sent him to me to take care of . I love my lapband too and know how fortunate I am to have gained control over my health so I can continue to live my new life.

    So we all sound like we've got our challenges...and trying to deal with them as folks who are years out from WLS. It's not a magic bullet for sure and is very much a daily struggle to stay on track.
    I am understanding that for me, this surgery feels like a setback which I know is not but I feel like it's my fault and part of the guilt I feel for putting my body through such trauma by carrying so much excess weight. No one thinks I did this to myself but I know that I do. It's why I'm having such difficulty during my recovery. I feel like I deserve these problems because I let myself get so fat. Yes I know this is not reality but my perception. It just shows that I carry stuff in my head and likely always will.

    Sharpie reacted to Kaylalala in First Time Dating... Ever   
    Dating is hard. I've been through this. I was always too insecure to put myself out there. I think majority of girls have this problem though. Post op or not. I don't think you are ever completely secure going on your first date ( or even dates coming after that). When you go on a date, you don't know the person and how they are going to react to you. Once again, whether your post up or not. You have bad dates and you have good dates that's just something you have to expect. You have dates that you'll never talk to again after the dates is over. That's just how it is. As for the extra skin, just wear what you feel amazing in! That will give you the confidence you. If you guys don't hit it off, oh well. Just like how you shrug off the the men who don't take the 'why are you single' question wrong. Don't worry so much about the opinion of your date. You're there to find someone who loves and respects you. If they don't, oh well moving on.

    Glad we are all here and get to chat about the twists and turns our lives take.

    I am recovering from a pelvic injury... had 3 cortisone shots today and so far.... much less pain.

    Weigh in tomorrow... thinking it won't be where I want it.... so goes another week in banded life.
    I also hosted Easter JWM [emoji195]with help from the family and am glad I did. The chocolate called my name and I'm thankful it is gone!!
