    I had to be catheterized after because I couldn't go to the restroom on my own. I just felt violated. Lol. It wasn't that bad. The pain was waaay worse from the gas after surgery.

    Taste Bud Changes

    I remember my taste buds being totally out of whack at first. It doesn't last very long.

    I Want To See Before & After Pics!

    I have lost 187 so far. My advice is to listen to your nutritionist and eat everything they tell you. I never drank calories or ate anything "bad" for the first year. I have added things lately now that I'm exceeding my goal. I just don't want to lose anymore! Just be patient. There were many times when I didn't lose hardly anything.

    I had my sleeve surgery on 12/22/2011. I have lost a total of 185 pounds. I was at 190, but felt that I was too skinny. I have been eating to keep my weight on now. I don't exercise regularly, but am much more active of course. I'm very tall also. I started my journey at 349 and now weigh 164.

    Excess Skin?

    I was just approved for abdominal surgery! I didn't think it would be approved. I'm excited and scared!
  14. I did not cheat because I was so scared that I wouldn't be able to have the surgery. Just imagine going under and getting operated on and then waking up with an epic fail! Try to freeze the protein shakes just a little. It helps thicken it up a little more and it tastes like a milk shake! Drink broth all the time if your hungry. That helped me. I wish you the best of luck!

    I had to wait an hour before and after meals in the beginning. It is hard, but you get used to it. I take sips of milk when I eat peanut butter toast, but I am a year out. I don't suggest you do that. You need to train yourself to not drink with meals. I don't even think about it. When I go out to eat I order water only because servers think its weird if I don't and ask me several times during the meal.
  16. I just had my year anniversary on Dec 22. I just have to let everyone know.. A year from now it will be totally worth it all. The pain, dehydration, hunger, heart burn, hair loss, holiday food, buying a new wardrobe every month, and on and on. I have lost 183 in a year! I couldn't be happier! I hope for you all to get through it and can't wait for you to live again!
