    No it's not. The closer we get to goal the harder it will be for the weight to come off. I also learned at my local support group that months 6-7 we plateau or have a stall. Hang in there!

    Me too! I have no problem eating a whole container of yogurt. I get full very fast with dense protein though. I can only eat around 2-3 oz the most.

  13. Things I WILL NOT MISS.... 1. Not being able to shave my legs without getting off balance. 2. Feeling bloated and swollen.. 3. Not taking family pictures. 4. feeling uncomfortable at weddings, party's, and my husband Christmas party. 5. Not finding shoes that fit, always had to get wide width... Ugh! 6. SPANX LOL! 7. Tummy control top panty hose. 8. Not being able to enjoy Water parks and the beach. 9. Feeling tired, run down, and moody all the time. 10. Feeling like I don't deserve to stand next to my very fit and handsome husband :/ 7 weeks out and 42 pounds lighter...this side is sooo much better!

    Stronger Orgasms

    Sex has always been great but after losing weight and inches wow! Husband can't take hands off me all day lol! I think you feel more comfortable and "skin/fat" is not in the way... Especially tummy area it makes for a more enjoyable and intense orgasm my opinion anyway

    I've lost 32 so far!
  16. All the time I did feel like the biggest one... That's what encouraged me to do this surgery... Surgery date I was 280 at 5'7 but to everyone else looked smaller. I guess I'm more heavy boned lol! Now I'm 248 and I still feel big... better but big still... You are not alone. Can't wait to get to 8 months out and look back on the transformation

    I am 6 weeks out tomorrow If it helps at all look at it this way... You can eat a cookie, cake, pizza etc... You are choosing not too! That's the awesome part... Be encouraged by the thought that now you are in control! This is a life changing surgery but I can guarantee you it will pay off. We have all tried those treats before.. We know what they taste like (and although yummy!) it didn't do anything for my butt and thighs haha... Embrace the new you! Journal if you have too. I read a few days ago on my journal how gross and " fat" I felt a few months ago... I read it now and I'm like yeah kiss my slowly fading big butt lol! I'm beating you this time.... YOU can do this!!
