  1. Wicked, Thank you for this post! I am not alone. I have lost almost 100lbs since 3/2014 and yet when I have to buy a size 5 in the JR dept just to get jeans that fit I stand in the dressing room and cry beacuse all I see is a fat person staring back. I can't comprehend what other people see and it's so frustrating. When they say "you're so thin" I'm thinking what are they lookng at?? It has started affecting every part of my life including my marriage and I'm at a loss of what to do.
  2. Hi Jamison, I had my bypass in March 2014 and I can honestly say I haven't really missed anything. If you stick to your eating plans the foods you craved will be a think of the past and much harder to eat in the future. Now, I'm not gonna lie, I do love a Reese's cup so I will occasionally have a mini one but it was a long time before I allowed myself one. I needed to make sure that I had my eating and will power under control first. But all of the carbs, soda and other things I don't miss, you just learn to eat different. It really is a blessing that carbs make me sick now and trust me, I have tried to eat them and it doesn't take but a couple of times and you learn your lesson. Things that you never considered eating before may end up on the dinner menu. It's funny but salsa became my best friend! Good Luck!
