  1. I haven't felt like I'm losing much. Doc says I will lose slower because my BMI was 42 at surgery. I'm 48 down right now....was 46 down in this photo. If you are starting this journey - take progress pictures!!! I have a whole new motivation, now!
  2. Did you receive yours, yet? I've heard mixed reviews about jet.com. I need something I don't have to GAG down...ugh!
  3. Last night, I could not warm up. My BONES hurt so bad, I was so cold. I took a hot shower and was literally shivering standing under the hot water. I used to be the "hot one" in my office where I work and now I keep my vent covered and a sweater on. The a/c is only set on 74 but I am just freezing! I go for my next dr. appt this Friday and I will ask but wondering if any of you veterans have already had this question?
  4. Great job! I was thinking about starting the C25k, too. I used to hurt so bad just trying to take a 1 mile walk and now I'm 1 month post op and zipping through a 2 mile walk with ease! I've never considered myself EVER becoming a jogger but I'm feeling hopeful now!
  5. This makes me LIVID for you. I can't imagine - I feel like something like this will happen to me, too. Hang in there - they will get it figured out for you. Don't give up! Keep us posted. I'm pulling for you! Sent from my iPhone using the BariatricPal App

    I've been wondering this myself. Obviously, I want to be honest but I'm afraid I'll say the wrong thing and won't get approved. I mean, I didn't get in the shape I'm in with my weight without having issues surrounding food. I want to have a positive outlook and my husband is WAY more supportive than I thought he would be. He's even wanting to go with me to my first consultation appointment, which shocked me! Anyone know what you SHOULD DEFINITELY NOT SAY? Or is that cheating?

    She was super nice. She told me I can call weekly to see if I can snag a cancellation. She said "Persistence is your friend, don't be afraid to call weekly." She felt bad. Said the program is extremely popular right now. Sent from my iPhone using the BariatricPal App

    Well, I finally got my consultation date. It's an entire morning of team visits which is exciting. But the next opening isn't until April next year. Sent from my iPhone using the BariatricPal App
