    I'm alive!!! Yay! No cramping or anything crazy! I did "go" but just normal, there's not a whole lot in my belly anyway. So glad I could share all my TMI with everyone! Lol! So I think the tea is safe..I don't know if I will drink it again because I don't want to push my luck but I'm good: )

    @ I put it in boiling Water and left it in the whole time I was drinking it so maybe 10-15 mins and just the one bag. I took a Woman's so called "Gentle" laxative pill once and it was horrible! It made me sick and cramp something fierce! That's why I thought tea would be all nice and therapeutic like my chai tea.....I put up a big prayer that it doesn't happen again today : ( Maybe I should just go sleep in the bathtub?!

    Elode got a reaction from logicwand in Surgery Monday. I'm about to back out!   
    @@frankenstein Let me just say 99% of what your worried about is Bullshit. The only thing true about that is the permanent part. Honestly you can do all of that after surgery, once your healed I'd say by 6 months out you will be shocked. They tell you all of that to scare you into taking the surgery serious. I couldn't guzzle Water after surgery but today I just drank a whole 16.9 fl oz bottle of water in 3 minutes. I can eat and drink at the same time. I don't because I don't want to make the food go through my stomach faster but I can. You can defiantly drink beer. Now, you won't be able to "guzzle" beer because it's full of carbonation so that will not feel good. There's is NOTHING I can't do that I did before. You're going to find it more trying NOT to fall back into old habits. Thank god I can't eat as much!

    Go back to the basics. For me it's not drinking anything 30 mins before or after I eat. Eat Protein first, limits your sugar/salt intak. Focus on lean Proteins fish, shrimp, chicken, turkey. I try to buy most things fresh and unprocessed to cut out the junk. I've read that doing a 1-2 Week liquid diet can help to shrink the stomach and "reset". I can't speak from experience on that because I haven't had to do it yet. See a nutritionist if you can. TRACK EVERYTHING!!! I am meticulous with tracking every single piece of food that crosses my lips. Stay hydrated. I try to stick with Water, green tea unsweetened. I taught myself to drink tea without anything in it. (Which is saying a lot for a southern girl who use to drink sweet tea by the gallons) Write a list out if you need to to remind yourself of why you had the procedure in the first place. Start over! Take measurements, weight ect...don't give up! Stay motivated! Watch motivation videos if you need to. I pray, praying for strength helps me most! @@Onepoundatatime

    @@betrthnever My husband loves me no matter what, so he says but I'm pretty sure he likes this skinnier me better. I lost weight on my own back in the day and my ex preferred bigger women and told me I " looked sick" and he wasn't as attracted to me.......soooooo I told Felicia bye, which is why he is now referred to as my ex. See how that works! So technically I dropped that 60 lbs plus 170lbs of ass! Not too shabby!

    Thank you everyone! It's been one heck of a journey. I don't regret any part of any of it. I guess if I had to chose one word it would be "Thankful". I hope you all get everything you're after. It takes time yet it goes by in a flash so enjoy it.

    Hi Elode. I'm so happy to see you are doing well. You look fantastic. I just had my first consult with a plastic surgeon for a neck lift. We'll see what happens. It's all so mind boggling. You inspire me

    Wow you look great! I was thinking of getting breast implants but after looking at your pictures I am going to wait. Maybe later if I think I still need them. I am getting my arms (brachioplasty) and a breast lift. I am just waiting for vacation time to accumulate from my new job. I only have 4hrs so far because I work part-time. Ugh!

    @@My Bariatric Life For if you forgive other people when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. Matthew 6:14 , that's how! If you don't believe than I guess you just have to suck it up and forgive them even its for yourself and piece of mind.
