    @@AvaFern that's a constant struggle for me. Do i want scars everywhere or do i want all the flab lose skin? Now I'm still early on in my journey but I'm always debating on what to do. Time will tell. @@LipstickLady so far it bothers me in certain positions but hubby doesn't seem to mind at all lol.
  3. @@CowgirlJane thanks so much for sharing. I'm truly happy that you have been able to free yourself of that damaging emotion. Good for you! It takes a lot to be able to talk about it and even more to work through it. And in spirit of the convo i think I'll miss warming my hands in my love handles

    Slim band false advertising

    Well @missmeg this is kinda what i mean by the false advertising because this is how slim band advertises the band. Eat all the food you love and lose weight. Well no not really. Because in order for the band to work you need to maintain a balanced food lifestyle. Im sure you just can't eat fried chicken and Macdonalds in smaller portions and lose the weight

    @@melhach when you have that pouch and lose weight rapidly there's no crunches that can do anything for you. The elasticity in our skin just doesn't bounce back as fast as we're losing. Just like those of us with bat wings doesn't matter how much weights we do they are still there
  8. If no weight loss would be part of it than no. I managed my diabetes before surgery. And now no more diabetes and I'm losing weight. But if I was only going to get rid of my diabetes again nope

    Thanks so much for sharing i just wrote a post about smoking as i have picked it up again. I'm scared to get an ulcer but still can't find the will to quit. I'm disappointed in myself. I'm gonna try to quit again this weekend. Again thanks for the help

  14. There's a forum here that you can check out where plp are selling their old clothes check it out. I've seen a few post of plp selling size 22 20 and 18 clothing. I started at a size 20 and I'm down to a 18 but i also have a suitcase of old clothes from my smaller days so hopefully I won't need to buy a lot of clothes for now.

    2-weeks post-op

    @@PhillyChick so we're almost the same i too have really good days when i can eat and get all my water and feel full of energy. Than o have the bad days when i don't sleep at all feel groggy and get really nauseous. I've had my period simce surgery with only a 2 week break so that's sucked. Eating slower is a b#$% even a minute in between bites sometimes isn't enough I've been throwing up more the different things i try but hey I'm hanging in there. I'm at 45lbs down hoping for 5 more by the 1st of feb cause that will make it 2 months. About the constipation i had a lot the first few weeks and it was horrible so now i add bran buds to my yogurt and it's helped. I don't go daily but not constipated
