  1. Thank you! That is why I come here and ask, because I know I will get honest answers.. You are all right, I have the tool and just need to get back to using it better!. Thank you~
  2. I am allowed to start soft food today, so I made some oatmeal. I made 4 oz but only ate about 1/2. I started to get a pain in my left rib cage area. Do you know when your full? How?
  3. Wow! You are truly an inspiration. You have answered for me all the things I have been thinking, wondering, needing to know. I will be one week post op tomorrow. I was a size 4 for alot of years, but it has been a long time. My bmi was 36 also, but I am 4'11". I turn 50 next year and I want to be a size 6 for my birthday in april. Thank you for saying no regrets and that you would do it again because I have had serious moments of anxiety and tears since the surgery and I truly was ready. Hearing your story has made my night! Thank you

    5 Days And A Wake-Up

    Best of luck to you too! It will be great!
  7. Why were you in the hospital for 5 days? Did you have complications?
  8. Hi Newbie, All really good questions and thoughts, I have them myself. But, what if you did not lose weight and get healthy, what if your pre-surgery weight makes you sick to a point where you could not do any of it anyway? What if you get hit by a bus tomorrow? (metaphorically of course) You can still do all those things, just in a healthier way. Its just time to only focus on you. Do whats right for you and not what if's. Go to those resturants, share a meal. Go on vaction, choose wisely (do you ever really eat and drink enough vs the cost, I would bet not) Just know that its about you, your health and well being. He loves you, and will be there for you, yes relationships change even without WLS. Be strong.
  9. This is going to be hard. I have never done anything like this without having some type of appetite supressent. But, I will stick to it and I am hoping it goes by fast. I did go and have my "last supper" last ***ht, it included chocolate moulton cake from Chili's....I know bad, but I am pretty sure it will be a LONGGGGG time before I ever taste it again. Did anyone else have a last supper? I hope Im not alone!
  10. Thank you so much for your feedback. I am so glad to know I am not alone. Day 1 and its been hard, I have a headache and an empty stomach, but you are right, it will all be worth it.
