  1. heavy things. have heavy things on you.
  2. Keep purse on shoulder, keep coat on when you weigh. If purse large enough I bet an ankle weight would fit in it. Just saying. Heavy shoes.........
  3. ok, so it looks to me like you wear a stomach pump around your neck with a straw through a port into your stomach. Um..just no. WHO THOUGHT THIS WAS A GOOD IDEA? YIKES!

    Dog experts...let's talk yorkie mixes!

    I have a purebred yorkie and a yorkie mix with silkie, and she is a bitch in every sense of the word. She would prefer to be an only dog, and attacks my purebred. I also have an old italian mastiff in the house, and she picks on him too. One day she will get herself hurt or dead when the mastiff doesn't want to take it anymore. He already snaps back.....pretty close to her little head. She is only 8 pounds soakin wet. She is 12, and so are all the others (yorkie and mastiff, too). Good luck. I think I will stick to only 1 dog once these babies pass on to the rainbow bridge. (which I hope is a long long time away from now!)
  6. Oh my! I hear ya about hitting the deductibles early. I met mine on 1-14 with gallbladder surgery, which is what I assumed yours was (till I read a little further) I sure hope things are better for you soon.
  7. Are you 6 months "post op"? You put this in the Pre-op forums. (Just FYI) I also have experienced stalls. I believe we just need to ignore them and just keep following the plan.

    I hate vitamins

    Don't skip the Vitamins. Lots of bad things can happen with Vitamin deficiencies. Learn to LOVE them. They are your BEST friend! That and Protein and Water.

    Husband left me!

    @@Yadie2006 You probably don't realize this now, but in a month or two, your confidence is going to go through the roof! You will realize that you are worth it. You will look back at how "he" wasn't there for you, and be glad you made the decision to become healthy and thin, instead of obese and unhappy with a man who loves only himself. If he had truly loved you, he would've been there to hold your hand when you were scared before the surgery, and he would be waiting in the recovery room for you to wake up, and be so relieved when you do. But, I don't see that with your man. I see a chickenshit, who wants to control you. Good for you for choosing YOU and your kids. I really don't think you will ever regret that decision. .................and like others have said.....forget him!

    Gel nails

    I removed mine, because I assumed I had to. When I told the nurses I did that, they said I didn't have to. I was pretty bummed, because for the next two weeks I couldn't pick anything up!!!

    Medical Records/BMI

    I have UHC via my employer, and they dropped that requirement a couple years ago. Are you certain that is really a requirement? My bariatric office thought it was a requirement, but I had it confirmed through my Bariatric Resource dept via UHC that, it was dropped as a requirement. Check to be sure.

    Stretched Sleeve

    I have done well to just read through and keep my lips zipped, but someone stirring the pot to purposely cause hard feelings when people are having a discussion about their experiences is RIDICULOUS and I had to say so. How is discussing individual experiences the same as being a medical professional?? GEEZ LOUISE people!! GROW UP! That is all.
