    I find some of the supports groups on FB are kinder and more supportive. I'll never understand why some people just need to be so mean spirited. Thanks for the words of wisdom

    Karen Congratulations on your easy surgery experience....Not everyone gets to have that for their beginning..I know I was one of those horror stories....10 months out now I am doing better...
    The crossed the finished line..Sorry girl you have your work cut out for you...This is where the work begins....The struggles, learning a new way of eating. Dealing with why you had to have this in the first place and why you had a food addiction..
    I am glad you have a good support system..
    But this is a life long change for you and you will find it hard at times...You did this for the right reasons...We all did...But this is not for the faint at heart...This completely changes the way you view almost everything....
    So happy for you girl......onward and upward to the new and improved and healthier you!!!!!!!!!

    Of COURSE you weigh after a poop! I just wish I could take off my glasses too - but then I wouldn't be able to read the scale!

    Thank you all for the well wishs and I greatly needed the hugs. The family is doing much better. In fact my niece has been really good all week and told me yesterday that she plans to stay at my place the week of surgery, she'll arrive once I get out (Tuesday) and look after me.
    I figure with doing clear liquids for the first week there in not much to prepare, scoop some jello in a bowl or heat some broth. I don't want to tax her either, this heat has not been kind to her.
    Again, thank you all for your kind words they are greatly appreciated.

    I'm so sorry for the issues. They say what doesn't kill you makes you stronger. I firmly believe that your mother is with you and that she supports your decision--that's one of the reasons you were thinking of her so much. Hang in there and know that your mother will be watching over you!

    I'm so sorry you are going through all of this alone. If I were in the area, I'd surely help you move & be of some support.
    You have a lot going on. Your body & mind are becoming a little weary. You're on a liquid diet & MOVING. Your body is TIRED & it needs to rest. It's OK that your car is full of stuff. Unpack in a few hours.
    Your closest support is in the ER & you're missing your mom. {{HUGGGGS}} to you.
    Breathe and slow down. Rome wasn't built in a day & even GOD rested on the 7th day.
    Your spirit is still strong & it will get you through.
    If your home isn't in order before your surgery, IT'S OK. Unpack the essentials, have a comfortable place to rest & recover & be sure to have your liquids and meals handy.
    Once YOU begin healing, you can then complete your place.
    TAKE CARE OF YOU so you can then take care of your new place.

    Wow, that's awesome, it is a good feeling when the clothes start getting loose. It's only been a couple months that I bought size 16 summer clothes, now I wear 12. Shopping is so much fun now. Yes, I too have to pull out the winter coats and give away, size 2x.
