  1. Good luck and enjoy the ride!
  2. I can eat a lot. I feel I've been able to eat more than most others since the begining. I can eat a large salad. I try to keep the protein to about 4 oz but the lettuce & veggies are a cup & half. I can eat a whole can of corn as a snack. Scares me. I hope I haven't stretched my sleeze. I try not to eat that much and slow down but its always a struggle.

    I Have Stopped Losing!

    Me too! I've recently had to increase my exercise to get the scale moving after about almost no movement in two months.
  4. After almost two months of bouncing between 161 - 163 I finally made it to 159. I'm.so close to my 145 goal I can almost taste it. My ultimate goal is 140 to give myself some wiggle room. I'm a slow loser so evey lb. has been a struggle. I had to start exercising 2 hrs a day to get the scale moving again. I know I will start bouncing between 159-161 before I lose again because that's my pattern but I happy to see 150's. Hopefully it won't be to long before I see the 140's. Then the real struggle will begin. Learning how to maintain which I never been able to do for more than 5 mins before.

    Body Wraps?

    I've used body wraps for years. I just get a few a few times a year (they're expensive) but, I DO believe they help with the shape of my body. For example, before the first few wraps I got (that particular year, I got a package of 5), I did not have an hourglass shape to my body. After the wraps I had a more defined hourglass shape. At that time, I did at least 3 a month a part. If you continue to eat well, not overeat. Avoid alcohol.... drink water, I believe the shape or the "tightness" does stay. I just had one a couple of weeks ago. I look forward to having more in the next few months.
  6. Of course everyone is different. I'm 8 mos post op. I don't think I ever lost my hunger, desire to eat or enjoyment of food. I don't eat as much but I still enjoy all the food. I wish I had lost the hunger but I guess it doesn't happen to everyone.
  7. I've been using biotin since surgery. I added biosil about 3-4 mos postop. I think it's helped. Of course the hair all over my body has grown like crazy too. I do like my longer eye lashes. Crazy nose hair not so good. Oh well, if it helps hair my head its worth it

    Onq Pain Pump

    The doctor said that's why I didn't feel like a train hit me. The onq pain ball made pain tolerable.
  9. I'm having the same issue. I have little to no carbs. I've been going up & down same two lbs for over a month.

    How Much Weight

    I'll post my stats to give some perspective. Gotta represent the slow losers. Surgery 02/09/12. Total loss 46.
  11. I lost very little in month 4 &5 but my body shape has changed alot. All of a sudden XL tops were way to big. I dont measure but I most have lost alot of inches. It's amazing. Now that I'm almost 6 months out I've started losing again.
  12. Those that have had it taken out, do you have any problems or have to watch diet such as fats?

    Thining Hair

    Yes, Dooter we did have surgery about the same time. Sometimes I think it's not that bad and sometimes I'm freaking out. I keep getting all my protein & tons of vitamins and hope its starts to grow back quickly.
