    BAM....and there it is.

    @@gowalking THIS exactly!!!!! You could be me. Or, I could be you. He's so darn hurtful and yet I kept doing the same thing, I finally told dear old dad that I had WLS, he asked me how much I weighed when I started. So of course, stupid me, I told him. He said wow - you were a real cow weren't ya? Groan, why did I fall for it again? The man is 82 years old, has always been and will always be a narcissistic misogynist. And so there he is, living 500 miles away from me asking my brothers why doesn't she ever call me? BAM...and there it is.
  3. 30.00 copay per Dr's visit, 40.00 copay per nut visit. Although my monthly insurance premium for the "Un-Affordable" Care Act was 809.00 for that year. I guess for some of us it's pay me now or pay me later.
  4. @@LemonPoppyseed Do you mean an app for logging your food? I use my fitness pal and I've not found anything better. Of course I haven't been looking either. I too had let a few things creep back into my life since Thanksgiving and Christmas. I re-started my pre-op diet this past Monday, 4 days in and 6 pounds down. Could be Water weight, but I'll take it. I geared myself up to cut out all the excuses, back to diligently doing everything @@Inner Surfer Girl mentioned above. So far what I've noticed, I'm real good most of the day, if I need something, I'll have another water or a listerine wafer (yuck). Then 4pm rolls around and it becomes almost unbearable, a whole or half Protein drink/shake about then takes the hunger/craving right away and I'm able to make it to dinner. Best to you, keep us posted

    @@breezy25 I found the isopure clear Protein drink is best really really cold I also cut it in half with cold Water. I can tolerate the grape, and I still drink it over a year out now. you can do this breezy!!!!
  7. @@Chrystee You truly are an inspiration!! Thanks for that. Lisa
  8. @@Chrystee I guess I'd keep pushing the counseling to see if I could change his mind. All kinds of awesome changes are happening to you right now, physically, emotionally, and hormonal as well. If you feel the need, maybe go talk to someone yourself. You finally feel really great about yourself and what you've accomplished and the most important person in your life is acting like, meh... That is mighty hurtful and I don't blame you for being concerned.
  9. @@prez You write about failure, but you can't fail unless you give up. Since you wrote on this forum maybe that means you might not be ready to give up yet. I could ask you all the obvious questions, but I'm not going to. I'll ask this one though, have you considered a revision from sleeve to bypass? Would that be an option you would be interested in?
  10. @@prez 40 lbs down in a little over a year? Wow, when was the last time you did that? Believe me, I'm not lighting the world on fire either, but I'm sure a heck of a lot better off now than I was before surgery. I know more than I did before, do you?

    Yeah, 48 lbs in less than 3 months is awesome. What does your doctors' office say since you see them every month?
