    Thank you Actually it's been a long time since I've been on this app. I have since started to work out for bodybuilding shows. I've increased my weight to 125 and put on some nice muscle now. My body fat % ranges between 16-18% during the off season and for the show I'll be down to 8-10%. Amazing how life has changed.

    My starting weight was actually 229. I actually was feeling better about myself and weighed about 15lbs more when I was working out. I've promised myself that I'm going to start back at the gym within this week. Hopefully I will gain my weight back.

    Thanks. I am happy with the progress I've made. I do feel though now I am on the other end of being judged. Not for being too big now, but people judge me now for being so small. Weird I never thought I'd feel like I was too small but even the nutritionist I saw was looking at my arms telling me I was just skin and bones.
  4. My stats from my appt yesterday. Never thought I'd say it but I feel like I'm getting too small :/

    Big Head

    I see myself that way in pictures now. I feel like my head isn't proportionate to my body anymore. Not sure how long it will take for that feeling to go away.
  6. I do the same thing!! I've gone from a super tight size 18 to a size 0! Every time I go to put them on I think there is no way that is going to fit, but then they do!
  7. Today marks my one year surgerversary!! So happy! Starting weight 229, current weight 120! Loving every minute of this and my new life!!
  8. Yay!!!! One year today!!! Starting weight....229, current weight...120!! Loving life!!
  9. Thanks Dlcoggin! I'm glad to finally know what's going on at least. Hopefully the meds will take care of everything. I'll have another egd in 30 days and go from there
  10. Yes I have been getting nauseous every time I eat. it was going so well up to now. I am mainly going to focus on getting in protein drinks as they are the only thing that seems not to bother me. Best of luck to you hope we get over this fast!!
  11. My surgeon only had me taking nexium for the first three months or so. :/ Back on it now for what it's worth.
  12. Today I found out that I have a marginal ulcer. Had an egd done after having awful pains last night. Treating it with carafate and nexium for 40 days. Then reevaluate with another egd. Anyone have any experience with these?? I am literally 4 days away from my one year anniversary.
  13. So I guess all is not well. Got extremely sick last night with lots of pain below rib cage. Went in for an egd today and the verdict is a marginal ulcer. Going to treat for 30 days then follow up with another egd.
  14. One year follow up today! Only shortfall is Calcium. Otherwise great stuff!
