  1. I am so sorry to hear this devestating news. Keep your water nearby and force those protein shakes. Preferably the pre-mixed kind. Again, I am so very sorry. Share quality time while you can!
  2. Your BP is so low the doctor is concerned!
  3. I was told "hunger" usually is a sign of dehydration and/or low protein. I have a hard time keeping both those up, but I know if I think I might be "hungry," I drink lots of water!

    Tall Women, Tell Me Your Story!

    5'7"ish...starting weight 269. Goal weight 169 (was 170, but I wanted the 100!) Currently 163. Fitting between 12 and 14 Jean. But I look smaller (or so they tell me...) I don't want to lose more, but I am having a hard time remembering to eat, especially when stressed. What a change! Before, I binged when I was stressed!

    stretching the pouch!

    I didn't even think about it the other day. We had a root beer float party, and I dug right in, forgetting about the carbonation. I didn't drink any more after I realized it, but I did have a stomach ache. BTW, I am 6 lbs. under goal, and am trying to figure out a way to STOP losing. I don't do many artificial sugar snacks.

    When did you buy new clothes?

    Resale, resale, resale! I have gone from 24s to 12s. Every couple of weeks, drawers emptied, "new" clothes in.

    Multi chewable vitamin

    Oh geez! Watch out for the iron supplements! Constipation is such an issue, and iron makes it worse!

    Last 10 pounds

    No. But everything dropped. I thought, "Oh how lucky I am! I got away with little skin sagging." Nope.

    Psychotropic meds

    I think some of my depression/anxiety was due to carb withdrawal. I would ABSOLUTELY not let this stop you. I had NO problems with my meds after surgery. I take my mental health very seriously, so I can totally understand your fear.
  11. Okay. I am 2 lbs below goal. Now I wonder how I figure out how to maintain? I am ready to schedule an appointment with my NUT, but in the meantime...Do I have to pick and chose what to eat, and see how I react? Maintenance has always been my challenge. This is scary territory. Any advice on how I start? I am getting a little frustrated that the clothes I had hoped to wear a while are starting to get too loose! Thanks!
  12. And I thought you were going to share something "Juicy!" Thanks so much for sharing, Elode! I am exactly where you are! I reached goal last week! I have officially lost 100 lbs! It is so damn unbelievable, isn't it? I went to a Greek Festival yesterday that I go to every year. Most people didn't recognize me, and I spent the day reintroducing myself! Go out and Celebrate at Goodwill! :0)

    Swimsuit Shock

    I am part of the Saggy Thigh Club as well!
  14. I am seven months out and it has FINALLY subsided. It started at about 4 weeks for me. My husband (and our drains!) are glad that it has started to subside. My hair is definitely thinner. Luckily I have curly hair, so it disguises it. It is what it is....
