    Is it just me or does it seem like we have a lot of really beautiful people on this site? Half the time I see women's avatars I think they are already post op and find out they are pre op.

    I'm currently weigh 152; I wear a size 8 bottom or medium and my tops are a 4/6 or small. I haven't lost in a few months, but I did drop another size. I've upped my fitness and I've replaced fat with muscle. So, hence same weight, smaller size.
    Good luck to you!

    This morning I wrapped a bath towel around myself. And it covered me. All of me, with an inch to spare. I had to just stare at myself in the mirror.

    Had an NSV I didn't expect. I packed for vacation tonight and my clothes didn't take up the whole suitcase. They actually didn't even take up half the suitcase. I guess that means I can just bring more clothes with me right?

    OK -- seven weeks out and 34 pounds gone -- after one more pound I'll be halfway to goal. After 2 more pounds, I'll officially be overweight and not obese (by BMI standards). Incredible feeling!
    Here's a before and after face picture which I think is pretty telling -- I can see a big difference in the roundness of my face and my neck is significantly thinner, too. I've got to get a good full-body shot to show the difference in the tummy. I'm down 1 jean size but two shirt sizes because the pot belly has shrunk so much.

    Well, I did it! I hit 199 today. My surgery date was March 18, 2014, so it took me about 4.5 months to reach this point. I have about another 50ish pounds to get to my goal and now have the confidence to know that I can do it. I couldn't be happier with my progress. This surgery has been such a blessing for me. I am healthier, so much more active and feeling better than I have in years.
    This forum has been a wonderful place for support. I have plenty of support from the few family members and friends that know I had the surgery, but having this site has been extremely helpful. Thank you everyone! I'll post pics eventually. . .

    greensleeve got a reaction from LaChasida in Would you do it again if you knew....?   
    I have never felt like food was my best friend. I never considered myself a foodie.
    I just ate a lot of food because I wanted to. I have done a lot of work on myself and the reasons why I over ate.
    And so now when I eat something that is amazing, I think to myself that I wish I could eat more of it. But then I feel happy that I can't eat more of it.
    The reality is that I can eat more of it the next day. I just don't feel sad that I can only eat a few bites of something. Because now I'm in control of food instead of food controlling me. And it is a great feeling.
    I'm down almost 80 pounds and I don't regret it at all. I have further to go but I already feel so much healthier, lighter, younger, and more like the real me. I feel like this is who I am supposed to be.

    Your liver will be fine from one sandwhich.
    Honestly our surgeons know we are addicted to food. I think they make the diet extra strict and long because they know we are going to slip up a little.
    You are doing great. It's human nature to want to eat real food, have something to chew, and drinking Protein shakes for so long is against our very DNA.
    It's so necessary to make surgery safer, but don't beat yourself up. Just stay with it and it will be over soon.
    I ate a really dark chocolate bar during my pre-op diet. I was fine.

    greensleeve reacted to *Shelly* in surgery Monday and I'm fearful   
    You just have to beleive in yourself and that everything will be just fine. Follow all the directions to the letter and you should be fine! I am scheduled for Monday Aug. 4th as well. I am sure we all have the same fears. We just have to push through them. I have been very lucky to have my friends, family and co-workers cheer me on. But if they didn't it wouldn't matter to me because I am doing this for me and my health because I want to live a long life and that is what truely matters the most! Good luck!

    I think this is a tough situation. The fact is that you can't control his life to that degree. It's not fair and it doesn't work anyway.
    You have to accept him being a smoker until he is ready to quit. That's really it. You don't have to like it, and you have made him aware of your feelings on the matter.
    Unless this is just a symptom of something else wrong with the relationship, I think you need to apologize to him and move on. I also wonder how you would feel if he "went off" on you about your eating in a similar manner. Probably not good.
    I am married to a smoker too (I am a former smoker) and it's hard to watch but when you love someone you love the whole person as they are, for who they are and not how you would want them to be. I am sure you know this.
    Is there any chance that this is really about something between you two other than smoking?

    greensleeve got a reaction from onmyway15 in finally told my daughter.   
    I hadn't told her because I only wanted those close to me to know. She can have trouble keeping secrets and I didn't want to burden her with that. And if she let it slip I knew she would feel guilty.
    Almost everyone in my family knows now, and my ex and his girlfriend know because they hacked my email. Long story there but I don't have to worry about them finding out now.
    So I told her, she was a little upset because she thought that I had a bad stomach disease even though I never said that.
    I'm just glad it's out in the open now and that she can ask me questions and I can tell her why I don't eat certain things.
    I feel relieved.
