    Neuanfang got a reaction from kw2walker in I got the call!   
    Hello Karen, It's good to read all your preparations for the big date. I asked lots of questions of people who had just been through this surgery before I had mine. It was helpful and I understood the roller coaster emotional ride that is happening throughout this entire procedure. The best thing I have been told were three steps to keep in mind. Step 1: Oh, wow, I am really doing this.... I better get all my ducks in a row,,,, Step 2: Day 1 right after surgery....... Oh no, what have I done to myself.......... Two weeks out....Step 3: Wow, why didn't I do this sooner. Best advice I can give you is, give your body time to heal after the big day. Good luck and see you on the other side.

    Neuanfang got a reaction from Cheer Mama in Seven days out and my eyes are open   
    Hello there,
    I got it but then again I am 50 , lol, I am 3 weeks out and I know exactly what you are saying. My family still wants to eat and they do miss my cooking. Both my hubby and my son have actually lost weight since my surgery because I am not spoiling them with those extra yummy things that made me fat in the first place. You are right, we can do this, we do have that inner determination and strength acquired by years of experience. Why on earth would anybody go through all of this just to cheat themselves in the end. Good luck to you,

    Neuanfang got a reaction from Pammers Johnson in Scale and Motivation Stuck!   
    Yes I agree don't give up... I met a friend yesterday who had another weight loss surgery (Duodenal switch) and lost 145 lbs in the last 5 months. His skin didn't do so well and he is still a young man, so slow and steady is better in the long run, also try increasing your activity that helps to give your body an extra boost. Good luck

    Neuanfang got a reaction from Brenda0928 in Hurt feelings   
    I truly think that this is a natural human reaction. They mean well and want to support you but then feel that they are left behind and you are moving on to become a butterfly. Give her time and look to make new friends in a support group who are like minded. Your life did change and you can no longer be the eating out buddy you once used to be but you are going to be happier and some people have a hard time adjusting to that. I have not been visited at all by my dinner friends since I had the surgery. Strange but true.... they took my stomach not my heart which still makes me a great friend.
