    Body image

    I was 338 to start and was crazy dating I never had a problem with men, then I took the year before surgery off of dating , I have lost 97 lbs as of today and at 241 I feel I look the same or worse as when I was 338. maybe because I got some flabby spots on my legs and belly. but I totally get what your saying. I just started to date again but I still feel like the fat girl.. IDK hard to explain

    Adult or child size silverware

    I use a baby spoon and seem to eat allot slower and it also tricks the mind into like you are allot more than you actually are.
  5. I also wondered about this low end for someone 5 9 is 129 lbs high end is 170 so what do I use to calclate 60% if I go with the low end then 212 would be my weight if I go with the high end I am done loosing now but that wouldnt seem right. anyhow I am happy with my weight loss

    Need help/motivation

    your doing great, the first week I didnt loose a thing !!! constipation is normal. talk to your DR on what they would like you to take to help with that issue, I am almost 7 months out and still have bouts with constipation.... follow yourplan and the weight will come off, i am down 96 lbs.....
  8. i get more the head hunger . not hungry like before surgery but I just want to snack and graze all night.... I have the day time thing down, shake at 7 am , lunch at 11, snack at 3 dinner at 6 thats for a work out day , other days are 7 am shake, lunch at 1100 , dinner at 4 snack at 7
  9. So I am officially 6months out today , down 92 lbs per the scale here at the hotel, was hoping for the big 100 but being on the road has totally thrown me off with my work out schedule and eating. do you know how hard it is to eat out every meal because my company wont pay for me to buy through grocery stores. totally sucks...... anyhow hopefully the lbs will start to drop again once I get back to my personal trainer. I will post pictures soon on my page once i get home and have clothes that fit me ...

    New wardrobe

    I was also lucky to have from size 18-26 in my closet but now after loosing 90 lbs I am a 14 /16 and need to shop , I only buy things on the discount rack and they cant be more than $20 dollars. although I did buy a pair of work pants well actually 2 pair that made me look skinny and have gotten nothing but compliments from them for $39 dollars. overall I havent spent tooo much on new clothes and when I buy I buy alittle on the tight side other than the loose side . and they last way longer. down 90 lbs since sept . love to shop !!!

    having bathroom problems

    I am almost 6 months out and still have this problem from time to time. I have a marriage of different items I take but found once I could tolerate Prunes 2-4 a day does the trick and they are sweet and give me that feeling like I am eating candy..... They are 100 calories for 4 and lots of carbs but they do keep things moving ... good luck cause it sucks when your constipated

    sleeve fail?

    I have found that it is easy to find ways around the sleeve. I can eat anything I like in small portions. So like they say this is only a tool and what we do with it is up to us. As long as you follow your plan and learn to live a healthier lifestyle you will be fine.

    I'm gaining weight.

    I found that I was actually eating more as I started working out more, so make sure to really count your intake , watch the carbs, and up the protien... It will come off !!
