    8 weeks out!

    Don't get discouraged. I have weeks I will loose 1 pound or 0 and then I have weeks I will loose 5.. I know on the weeks I don't loose that inches are coming off instead of pounds. We all have plateaus but that is a good thing. I started out at 205 day of surgery 4-21-14 Today I am 168.. We can all do this together!!!!
  3. I ate the house down today.. Everything in site and out of mind I ate it.. I will be 6 week on Monday for 6 week post op.. It is also my time of the month..,has anyone else struggled w this?

    Remember sometimes the scales may not move but the inches are. Make sure you are getting all your water. Drink drink drink is what my dr says.
  5. Sorry your husband is not supportive..maybe just a little jealousy that you are looking good. My husband has been very supportive since I made the decision to do this. I'm just on week 3 (tomorrow). We ate out yesterday and I ordered off kids menu and it was perfect. Didn't finish that.. I have been walking 2 miles a day hoping the inches come off a little quicker. We are all on this journey together and I wish you all the best... Happy Mother's Day to all you fabulous mother's
  6. 1 week post op.. I went back to work today, I have a desk job in a dental office. Super busy after being off and getting caught up with insurance and referrals although I did great. I noticed it was hard for me to try to get in my water being busing. My co workers kept asking me what I did last week on my week off. I just feel like I don't need to share right now or ever.. This is my personal business.
  7. I am on day 5 Post Op. I'm feeling great about this surgery and so far so good.. I have not yet had to use any pain meds the whole time. I got in 45 grams if protein drinks today. I walked up and down my drive way several times. I drive into town today which is about a 30 min drive to get a pedicure. I needed that treat. I wish you all the best and love reading posts. Good Luck to all!! Cari
