    My weight loss has slowed down considerably and haven't really lost much in the last 2 months. Starting weight was 295 cw 204. hair is growing back. I was struggling with Water and protien as well but getting lots in now. Feeling really tired lately so I might call my nutritionist about that. Over all, other than the extra skin I have, I'm still very happy with my decision and my results. Still have 24 lbs to go to get to goal.

    Sleeved June 10th. Sw 254 cw 177.2. Still learning how to "drive" this new life, but am thankful for it every day. I will be happy when the holidays are all behind and life and eating (and temptations and cravings) are behind for a little while. I told my hubby I want size 10 jeans for Valentine's Day.

    Kay Girl, I'm also in St. John's. Been waiting 3-4 years. Had the first meeting via webinar in July 2014 and now things seem to be getting moving. I have an appt on the 5th of Nov for my clinic visit with the nurse practitioner and dietician to see if I'm a good candidate and today received in the mail a guide to the surgery. I'm currently on the healthy eating diet for a week and keeping a journal of everything I eat and next week I go to full fluids (dreading that!), I guess to prove that I'm serious and can do this. At some point after going to the clinic, if all goes well, I meet with a surgeon. So don't know if it will be a matter of weeks or months at this point.
    I'm kind of worried about the excess skin thing afterwards as I'm in no position to pay for getting it removed. However, I'm single right now so who's going to see it? lol

    I am ALWAYS concerned about regain, but this is something I'm really trying to get into my head. Someone told me this years ago and it is still in my head.
    If you forget to brush your teeth, one day, are you going to stop brushing your teeth forever? Of course not...you'll brush them again the next day. We need to look at our eating in the same way.
    Good luck, and never stop thinking about it, but don't worry....

    @@allyray And on the flip side, I also saw a blog from a very successful WLS person who has maintained for years say that we have to look at excersise (or being active and moving) and eating right as a job. Just like brushing our teeth every day, combing our hair, and taking a shower and washing our butts everyday, moving and choosing to eat right should just be the norm like those things.
    Although there are days I forget to wash my butt, I'll admit.....

    Actually, funny story to your question.
    My husband had an RNY 9 years ago, and his surgeon was Dr Oakley (I think I told you that). Anyway, he got pretty thin, but still within healthy BMI range. When he complained to Oakley at his year appointment about people telling him he was too thin, Dr Oakley said this:
    "There are so many overweight and obese people these days, nobody even knows what a healthy weight looks like anymore".

    I should have quoted her post when I asked her to clarify so maybe some of you could have deciphered it for me.
    Something about a friend liking "coffee" and now they don't like it much anymore...she still likes coffee but the mug is a little broken and maybe the friend doesn't want a broken mug?
    I dunno. Too much thinking trying to figure it all out. And then she got mad and deleted her post when I asked what the darn question was so we can help her for goodness sakes!

    I'm telling you this.... Our sex life has improved sooo much since I've been losing. I keep asking my husband if it feels different and he says not really but since I feel soo good physically and about myself thst it's a real turn on. Btw, we've been married 19 plus years and 3 boys! We are enjoying each other soo much more right now than we ever have!
    Hope the same will be for you!!
