    Two years out, completely off track....

    For starters my Vitamin D was low. I was having cramping in my legs thought for sure it was low potassium and it was not. My legs also felt heavy. But now that issue has been resolved. So I agree to start with lab work.
  2. I say keep taking it. I didn't think I needed it and didn't take mine for long, now I have acid reflux and a hernia 21 months out.

    Hernia Open Operation - 21 months out

    Gina how was your surgery. Was it after the sleeve.
  4. I was recent dx hernia. It does explain my symptoms. From what I read most people got EGD pre op and got their hernia fixed with their sleeve if it was found. I didn't. So, fast forward to today I'm not sure what the course for me will be. Started back on a PPI. Looking into options.

    Stress eating at one year

    Paying for your friend. Congrats on your year.
  18. First, congratulations on your surgery. This one is for you baby. Like many of us we have faced some opposition as we went to about getting ourselves healthier. At our heaviest we consistently put off our needs our own expense. Now it's your Time. Diva time. How ridiculous that comments was telling you to stop loosing weight. The Diva time just started. Don't be sad your opinion is what really matter. My face too looked thin and I got a ways to go so what. Good luck

    What About Your Friends?

    Good thread. I had an experience too. I talked to one of my BFF right before surgery. And the very next time I saw or heard from them was 9 months later at a party I had. Lol Why do I laugh because 12 months into this game/WLS it's just small stuff. Because when I saw her we had a surprisingly great time. No love lost for real none. What happened is that I got Skinny! 2nd yes our relationship did changed for the better. Well I no longer had to lean to hard on her when I had strength within. So cheer up, and be encouraged! Relationship May changed because we are changing for the better. You already are successful and have strength from within. I was angry and hurt. But I will never trade that one day where she and I had so much fun for bitterness. I mean it's not your problem be happy, she is struggling. Congratulations on your surgery, this too shall pass. Focus on you.

    struggling a little

    Fantastic congrats on your weights loss. Your words are motivation.
  22. I agree you ve got a lot of good advice here. First you have done great so far . I say make another fitness goal since getting your lifeguard certificate help you to stay on track. Continue indoor swimming and or working out. I recently started back on my shakes and I'm working my way back to basics too. So, join me. Keep us posted. I agree reach out to therapy and find other support classes. You can do it. What are your goals, revisit them. At my psych appointment that I had to qualify for the sleeve. She said to me " you are already successful" and I say this too you. " you are already successful" so focus on the positive and go forward. I'm saying this to me first. What I like the most is getting out to games and events in a size 8/10 instead of my previous 22/24. What have you accomplished and what are your goals. Summer is coming too. We got this.
