    Hi everyone! I thought that I would introduce myself. My name is Michelle, I live in Texas, I am 31 years old and have been married for 5 years...no kids...yet! I was banded on Feb. 9th. Loosing well so far. My biggest problem is eating too fast or too big of a bite. I get sick from that about once a week...you would think I would learn! Nice to meet all of you!

    You must slow down when you eat, you must slow down when you eat! How many times to I have to PB before I learn this! UGH!:faint:

    What kind of pets?

    I love this thread! I mean, who doesn't LOVE talking about and showing off their babies! Both of my babies are Miniature Pinschers. The black one is Lexis and she will be 5 in August - she weighs 6 lbs. The brown one is Beamer and be will be 2 in November - he weighs 8 lbs. This picture was taken about a year ago and they have changed so much! Bad Mommy for not having current pictures! Here they are:

  8. Ok, I will be brave and jump in here! I think it is the new hair color that is making me want to finally share my pic's! (Sorry the bottom pick is so big!) January 1, 2006 - One Month Pre-Op June 20, 2006 - Four Months Post-Op

    Hello again! Just got back from the dr...he said my B12 was low and so was my Iron. On supplements for both and got a B12 shot...here's hoping that helps my energy level! Cozzie - There are times I wish I could eat normal, but eating "normal" scared me so much (b/c I was gaining so much weight) that I am really glad I have the band! Tamyrn- I am with you...so close to wonderland! Can't wait to see the picture of you! Ok, I am going to be brave and post a couple of pictures: January 1, 2006 - One Month Pre Op June 20, 2006 - Four Months Post Op

    DONNA!!!! You poor baby! That sounds so miserable! I feel so bad for you! I keep thinking I need another fill, but then I eat something too fast and get that awful pain....THEN I read your story...I think I will WAIT for a fill! Thanks for sharing, but I am sooo sorry that you had to go through all of that! I hope you feel better soon!

    I keep wondering the same thing! Don't we love each other any more????

    This will blow your mind

    Congrats on your surgery! Personally, I think "gut feeling" has a lot to do with these decisions. You have to make the decision that feels the best to you. Good luck and keep us posted! Congrats again!
  14. Congrats! I know we haven't met, but I live in the DFW area too...I so need to make it one of the meetings with you all! Which Baylor is doing your surgery? The one downtown? If it is, they really are a great hospital...the nurses will take such good care of you! My Mom just had a total knee replacement there about 2 months ago and they treated her like a Queen! Congrats! Congrats! Congrats!

    Pat - Good luck...I know how hard it is...Just had the worst PB experience of my life on Monday night b/c I ate to fast....I really wanted/thought that I might die!

    Pat - I get that sometimes too...It usually happens if I have eaten too fast. Some days my band is really picky and if I eat even the slightest bit too fast it backs up so to speak!

    Way to go Nanster! Hopefully you found your sweet spot! Has anyone noticed that you will loose a bunch over a couple of weeks and then nothing for a couple of weeks? It is very frustrating and was wondering if anyone else was experiencing anything like this....:faint:

    Hi everyone! Wow, you all must be as busy as I have been! Work has been crazy and my boss is back in town tomorrow until the end of the week. Got down to an all new low and have bounced up a 1/2 pound from there. I think this is my body's new thing...loose a bunch, bounce up a bit and then stall. I am working hard to keep track of my food intake and to make sure I keep walking! I would swear I need another fill, but just as the thought enters my head, I eat something and it gets STUCK....guess I don't need another fill! How is everyone??? I miss hearing from everyone!

    Where did my body go? - ramblings

    Way to go! Post pictures if you can! We would love to see all your success! Good job!

    Where did I go? Who am I now?

    WOW! Thank you all for sharing....I never realized that I wasn't the only one who felt I really was as a thin person. I never felt like a fat person, I always felt like I was thin trapped in a fat person's body. I guess it really is a form of denial. I hate pictures of myself. In fact, I didn't take before pictures because I didn't want to know....I thought what if I don't do that well, wouldn't the picture just be more proof that I failed? Now I wish that I had. I keep intending to grab my camera, but I don't know if I can face it yet. Thank you all for sharing. You all amaze and inspire me on a daily basis!
  24. I am about 3 1/2 months out and have pretty good restriction... Here is my list: pizza Steak Tortillas Sometimes chicken Triscuits Eggrolls (or anything wrapped like that) If bread is toasted, sometimes I can do that. I don't eat any soft breads....Man, learning the hard way stinks!:faint:
  25. Hey all! This isn't about the lunch planned, but.... For those of you in the Keller area: Hubby and I were eating at the Beef O'Brady's on North Tarrant Pkwy. last night and we found a big ole LIVE roach crawling on our table! Just thought you all might like to know!
