    I have read that corset training can cause your organs to move to the wrong places...kind of scary to me

    auntiemel got a reaction from shannalynne in How long after surgery where you, when got pregnant?   
    I am a month out and still haven't had a period. I'm hoping that eventually things will right themselves because my main motivation for having the surgery was to start a family!

    Perfect thanks! I thought "NO WAY can I be going up!"
    Kinda scared me for a second. I stalled last week so I'm assuming it's hormones and Water weight. Grrrr

    auntiemel got a reaction from Pac-woman in Anyone tried won ton wrappers?   
    I made pizza with them. One wrapper with four pieces of turkey pepperoni, cheese, and sauce was plenty!
    I made two the first time and ended up feeding the other one to my sister.

    auntiemel got a reaction from teacherlady2133 in Boob rash!   
    My grandma always says "can't was killed at the battle of try." May as well get it documented each time. I get boob rashes all the time. I had huge boobs in high school and am now a DDD. I would rather be a C cup and have an internal bra done so if I do decide to forgo a bra someday I can

    auntiemel got a reaction from Countrygrrl in hi there!!! are there really gay people here?!?!?!?   
    I saw this and had to chime in...I'm not lgbt...but I hope everyone here feels welcome! If people don't like who you are because of your sexuality or even your choice to have wls, then maybe they aren't true friends/family.
    I have had many people say this is the easy way out, but it is far from it!
    Good luck and let me know how your surgery goes ????

    auntiemel got a reaction from barbbcute in VSG cured my cervical dysplasia!   
    Congrats!
    Sometimes I wonder about false results from Pap smears. Anything can throw off the results, hormones, sex, douches, and anything like suppositories.
    It's interesting to know that the ideal timeframe to have a Pap smear is 10-20 days after your last period, BUT if you are obese and don't ovulate or have PCOS you may not even have periods to know when to have a Pap smear, and if you have it done at the wrong time it can cause false results.
    I really hope that more specialists focus on treating obese individuals, as we get bad treatment a lot. I hear so many doctors diagnose anything with "you are overweight" than actually delving into the problem. Even though I took a step with the sleeve to get healthier, many will not and we need to fight for awareness.

    auntiemel got a reaction from built2livenotexist in 17 pounds down since surgery on 9/22   
    It has been almost a month and I see some others losing weight faster and even slower than me, but we are all different!
    High Weight: 337
    Pre-op diet start weight: 320
    Surgery day: 312
    Today: 295
    To even lose this amount of weight is amazing to me! I hope everyone is experiencing amazing weight loss as well!

    auntiemel got a reaction from mrsbailey921 in Sugar addict and Vertical Sleeve Gastrectomy (VSG) surgery?   
    I chose the sleeve because I don't want my insides rearranged and if I make Cookies at Christmas, I want to be able to at least taste them and make sure I'm not giving my loved ones gross treats. I want to be able to eat normally but with moderation, which is what the sleeve helps with. I am a volume eater. Even if it's healthy, I just eat too much

    Laser hair removal hurts! I did it years ago and my face was red and bumpy for a few days.
    The silk'n doesn't hurt even on highest setting. Only spot that gets a tad sensitive is upper lip. I've used it on my face, legs, arms, and armpits without jumping like I did with laser hair removal.
    It was worth every penny!

    Lol! I always get pissed when people who are 10-20 lbs overweight complain. I think it is really rude, especially in front of obese/morbidly obese people.
    If you are 10-20 lbs overweight STFU and gain 100-200 more pounds and then complain to me

    auntiemel got a reaction from nprcowboy in Post op liquid diet. A shot of hot sauce hurt?   
    I tried turkey pepperoni too early on and paid for it. It's wise to eat blander foods for a while. I also put my usual amount of pepper in stew and noticed that my tastes are different. I couldn't handle as much, it was spicy in my mouth and irritated my stomach.

    auntiemel got a reaction from Elode in Thanksgiving Puree   
    When I was on purees food I was able to mince some turkey/chicken and mix it with my mashed potatoes and gravy. My mom makes a wetter stuffing so if you do that it would be easy to eat.
    I plan on taking a bite of each food starting with turkey.
    If I can't eat after turkey, then I can always put my plate in the fridge and save it!
    I feel like I'm becoming the queen of leftovers

    I just bought the next size down from old navy. They have some sales going on all the time, got a few pairs of sweat pants that should last through another 30 lbs or so, then I will eBay these and buy the next size or two down.
    I was wearing a 4X or size 30 or so to begin and now those had to go. I'm wearing a 2x in the sweatpants.

    auntiemel got a reaction from antigone40 in Sleeve Vs Bypass... How did you decide?   
    You can still get dumping syndrome. I am 2 weeks and 4 days out and if I eat something sweet, even applesauce, it can go right though me. Even Peanut Butter made me feel ill since it is high in fat. Each person is different and some with bypass can still eat candy and sugar and not be affected.

    I tried a mini bite size snickers on Halloween and it just wasn't satisfying anymore.
    I would rather have fruits and veggies over candy.
    I have had a bite of licorice and it was too sweet too! My sweet tooth seems to have disappeared with the stomach they cut out. Oh well lol
    So weird to think how much sugar I used to eat. Now the most I get is from fruit or juice.
