    My father-in-law is oblivious.

    Sure the office manager would appreciate it...it sounds like neither one of you should have it around the house!
  2. That was interesting...and all the comments are fascinating... but the bottom line is we get as "thin" as we want for ourselves...anything we lose after we hit our top weight makes us feel thin! If you start at over 350 pounds you are definately going to feel thin and healthy at 200...even tho you want to go lower but the media plays with our heads...I think most of us realize, at this juncture what we really need to do to take care of ourselves~!!!

    Getting cold feet for Weight Loss Surgery. Advice needed!

    I think just about everyone on here (even those with complications) would say they would do it again...and sooner, if they could... I don't regret one moment of it! I feel I can eat what I want, but I don't "want" junk...so I've not had any big problem with that...been maintaining. However, I have major knee problems and had to lose weight to get them fixed...one will be done next month (hopefully) and I couldn't have gotten there without my WLS. For me, I was more excited than nervous... I knew this was for me; I have known other people that were successful... no doubts, no regrets!
  7. amazing isn't it... I wish I had taken a picture of myself every month so really see my progress... I can't even figure out how to post pictures here

    Which is better

    LOL.... you are going to open that can of worms?!? It really comes down to YOUR choice... the surgeon will explain the varieties and why they may be good for you, and then you (or your insurance) decides. Some insurance companies still don't cover the sleeve. Personally, the sleeve felt like the best for me... I liked the idea of keeping my insides in tact so the nutrients stayed in my system, etc. I know several people that had the bypass 10+ years ago and said if they could do it over, they would have chosen the sleeve. Your co-morbidities, gerd, and other factors will play in to your decision. Good luck (glad you are not considering the band...just MY opinion)

    a few people have had complications...but your life is probably more "complicated" with the weight... Mine was very textbook... The one thing I wish I had was some carmex...my lips were sooo dry all the time...but most everything you need is provided... Good luck...let us know your progress! PS Oh Yeah...my phone charger! ABSOLUTELY!!!
  12. Congrats... I had trouble sleeping, I was so excited...Tylenol PM helped me

    What do you drink when you go out?

    Personally, I don't even bother with the empty calories of alcohol... I'll have an unsweet tea...if they don't have that, an iced coffee... I keep sugar free flavoring in my purse, so I'm ready... don't need the alcohol to have a good time... but that's me... never was much of a drinker anyway...

    My lunch bag is a sad place right now

    Torani has a sugar free chocolate syrup (and other flavors) that can be added to any beverage (and I use in cooking) so that can help with cravings at a lower calorie and budget cost!
