    Yes that would be the 1% you have to deal with unfortunately but remember your there to give them the best start they can get. It does suck knowing what kind of environment they might be discharged too. Don't get attached. I really do love my job.

    Thank you everyone. I really need support. My A1C is my sugar level 4.62 & normal values is 4.8 to 6.0. Before surgery I was in the 7. My iron levels are normal. My B12 is sky high so I quit taking it. My husband & I are good. We did go to counseling but that was before everything that happened. He was smothering me it was awful. I was either going to fight or flight. It is a work in progress but our communication is much better. I really wanted out of my marriage at that point. Oh my gosh I am so happy I remembered my password & found you guys again. I used the drinking as a crutch it kicks my butt so I would use it to go to sleep & forget how unhappy I was. But now that I got the second job & meeting new people (women) lol. I feel in control again. I am a labor & delivery nurse. Hang Amylynns on your nursing. You will be fabulous. thank you guys again for the comments. I don't feel so alone anymore.

    But honestly with the weight loss. I lost my mind. I started drinking alot. Vodka is my go to drink. My husband became so controlling I was not allowed to even go exercise. I then had an affair. My husband found out & bought me a new truck back in August 2016. Which still is a shock. The attention got to me. Since my lowest weight I have gained 27 pounds & I am miserable but I'm not giving up. I became very sick this winter my asthma exacerbated & my lungs filled up with fluid. My diverticulitis got me again to I was very depressed & got into a funk. The Good news is I'm still with my husband & he loves me greatly thank God. I recently got another job & am ready to power through all this weight gain. I plan on getting surgery in January 2018 but I have to lose 20 pounds first. My rule. I don't want to sugar coat all of this because it's not. I have been on one hell of a ride. Did my lab work back in February everything came back perfect my A1C is 4.62. My liver, kidneys & pancreas are all great. My friends sister had GB & died this last summer from liver failure & her kidneys shut down very quickly. So I talked to my Doctor & was honest. She scolded me & told I'm only allowed to drink once a week. It feels good to tell someone because I have kept this all in for to long. Seeing you all & seeing your continue success will help me. I know it. I hope this isn't to much information. If it is I apologize.

    Breakfast P3 & cheese stick. I could eat more but I'm really trying to give my pouch time to tell my head I'm not hungry anymore.

    Well...I have gained 5 pounds. I'm at 170 now. Kinda discouraging when I see how well everyone else has done. I can eat almost anything without trouble, which is not a good thing. Just yesterday, I refocused and with warmer weather I can start walking outside again! Pepsi....my nemesis! Started out occasionally as a treat and then moved up to several times a week. NO MORE! Got to remember how much I've paid financially and emotionally for this!Pop any carbonation is not good for your pouch. Me to I can eat anything. Let's refocus together. We can do this.

    How is everyone doing. It seems that we have all hit a plateau in some way. I actually went exercising in the mountains yesterday. It felt great to get ou. I trek through the snow & mud with my trusty dachshund. I know I have gained weight but the scale says I am 5.8 pounds over my lowest weight. I feel more like 50 pounds. It's weird to because in the mirror I see a huge belly & fat arms. I realize more & more everyday that my mind is my worse enemy. Would love to hear how everyone is holding out.

    Hi everyone. I have not been on for awhile and boy have I had some major changes. I recently went on a cruise. Ate what I want and drank what I want. After the cruise on my way home I thought what is happening to me where has my motivation went? Why am I drinking so much alcohol? Because it makes me feel good it makes me grow wings & I become super women. I only drink at night as if that makes it better. One night my husband had a terrible time helping me down the stairs. I don't remember any of it. So on our way home some where in Texas I woke up & thought to myself I have gone through so much. No way was I going to let alcohol control my life like food. I took my life back in control & have not drank any alcohol for 5 days. There are so many obstacles in life that we have endured & have yet to endure but losing the battle of winning is not one of them. I hope you all are doing well. Let's revamp, refocus & reset my friends.

    Hi all I am doing ok. Finally got a work out in yesterday. I too can eat whatever I want. Sometimes I eat way more then I think I should at a serving. Still drinking a protein shake everyday. I feel fat at times but my husband says it's all in my head because I am not. But I have gained some weight I can tell in my pants. I have been traveling alot so I think I make bad food choices because it's readily available. Weather has been rough this year & it has kept me lazy. Lol Going on a cruise on 2/19. I hope I don't over do it with all that food on the ship. Nice touching base. Y'all have a great day!
