    NegreteLove got a reaction from DKG_WLJ in Married people....8 out of ten of us will get divorced within 2 years   
    I think divorce after wls would be more prevalent in a co-dependent relationship. Roles change and insecurities arise causing all sorts of issues.

    Good to know...i thought i had slow progress and i know progress is different for everyone but it makes me feel better that others are in the same ball park with their weight loss progress.

    The best part of this is the non scale victories...i am loving the energy level and my skin is clearing up.

    Best of luck to everyone!

    Tomorrow will be my 4 month mark post surgery. I'm down about 60lbs since surgery and almost 150lbs total including the 6 month pre-op diet. I'm about 30lbs away from my goal weight. Down from 4xlt shirts to an Large Tall, and from size 48 pants to size 36. Off the cpap machine. Feeling great.
    Weight loss had slowed a bit in recent weeks as I've gone hard with heavy weight lifting. I'm losing about 2-2.5lbs per week now compared to the 4-6 I was losing each week.
    I have no issues with tolerating any food. Just the amount I can eat. I find about 6oz is how much I can fit at one meal. I'm eating about 1200 calories per day on non-weight training days, and about 1400 per day on weight training days. Not limiting carbs per say, but I do eat Protein first. I usually end up around 90-100g of protein and 100-120g of carbs.
    Best decision I've made. Would do it again 100 out of 100 times.

    NegreteLove reacted to FluffyChix in Bought two new pieces of clothing so far. What about you?   
    Really? Mom Jeans? And ice cream colors? That's my style! And bohemian tops! Part of my issue is my lymphedema arm is 2x as big as the other arm. And it still looks so filled with Fluid. That short sleeve shirts are really tough for me to wear without being self-conscious.
    You know my secret? I want to be thin enough to dress like Grace on Frankie and Grace! I think she's so unbelievably beautiful. I might even buy a Raquel Welch wig so my hair looks like her's when I go out! *snic*
    (As for the sig/ticker update...it's a sickness really--my inability to just let my stats ride until I have more than 1/2lb of loss to report! ROFLMFAO!!! I swear...I get up...derobe, pee, weigh nekkid...see a .3lb drop and think, "Crap! I gotta rush to the puter and update my ticker and sig!" Bahahahahahaha! Me=Insane.)

    I did not have my surgery with Dr Almanza but I did live in TJ for over 3 yrs and now live in Mexicali.
    Enjoy your time there do not get caught up in the scary hype. If you have time go to Playas de Tijuana, the Revolution, and enjoy the food and culture.

    NegreteLove got a reaction from The Dora Milaje in Any advice...   
    I was dead set on doing Keto after surgery and my surgeon and nutritionist are not totally supportive. They both explained that our bodies do not absorb the nutrients in food the same after surgery and because we take in smaller portions we do not want to exclude healthy food groups. They believe a well balanced diet is a healthier option. But of course number 1 rule eat Protein first.

    Me personally I believe whatever works for you and makes you happy healthy and successful on your journey is what is right for you.

    I have been living on both sides of the border for 8 years and get all my healthcare in Mex.
    I had my sleeve done in Mexicali by Dr Juan Francisco Arellano. I am receiving excellent care by Dr Arellano and his team. I had my sleeve done on 12/20/17 after care up to one year is completely covered in the cost of the surgery. I am able to reach the surgeon directly if needed 24/7. Dr Arellano is very dedicated to the success of each patient.

    Since before surgery I would drink a gallon plus of Water a day so that part has been easy...only thing is since surgery water has to be ICE cold to go down ok.

    I am not the kind of person that can slave away at the gym elliptical-ing in circles. I have taken up some sports and fitness classes. Pole and aerial fitness, tennis, recreational adult kickball, and last night I went to a Barre class, that was difficult and my muscles are sore today!
    Just some suggestions.

    NegreteLove reacted to BlueCrush in Doctor refused   
    You may not want to hear this, but if you have a true referral - driven H M O plan, it's likely that your doc gets financial incentives by keeping your medical costs down (i.e. keeping the insurance company's medical spend down). It's called risk - share contacting. This may be the reason they're against bariatric surgery, as in the short term it increases your costs as a patient and thus decreases their quarterly reimbursement from the insurance company.
    (edit: why is H M O... As in health maintenance organization... a filtered word that comes across asterisks?)
