  1. Relatives will no longer call me " Hefty" or Wide-Load,perhaps They will have to come with something nicer to say, I looked to see on our grocery. list. a couple ideas I have ready to purchase. That's why I still keep my Sparta options open in case town- living gets a bit much...

    New discovery - ribs!

    Ribs, collarbone,even a few hipbones showing. My wrists and forearms, really look like thin people bones. And when you lose your Rump Fat, you feel like the back. of your pelvis is going to pop through, so the same seats you needed help getting out of, now they are so hard to sit very long,dang things make you hurt! And I think now the swelling in my ankles has largely gone, so I can see those bones too.
  4. Watch out for your stoma narrowing down, this is a stricture or stenosis, and I am a veteran of that war and also have ulcerations in my jejunem- the send third of our small intestine that our pouch now attached to. Mine I believe to happened at 2 weeks but I did not have a confirmatory endoscopy until 6 weeks past my surgery date. And I have been fighting it every since. It really is kind of rare, but you will find there's me, Briswife and Mousecat all active. I believe my Bari- bud is the one closest to having all facets rectified. But I do still vomit frequently, my pouch is tender, sometimes it feels like Precious clenchs herself like an angry little ✊ fist, and I have a lot of right subcostal pain, that means right below the ribs, that is where my ulcers, the great majority, of which are there. Oh my weight loss is wonderful, 150 down from my Highest Weight, and 98 at last weighing since my surgery. But it has been a bumpy journey getting there, at this point. almost 9 months, I had expected " The Good Times To Roll", OH I don't think my Bariatric Clinic is that worried about me, but they are merely watching, I'm having to LIVE IT! They just seem to call it All ---Atypical. Healing Procee. Well Whoopee Ding isn't that just so special!!!🚩🎪🚩
  5. I went the seminar at Ohio State on March 10th 2018, received my Surgery Date July 17th 2018,my actual Surgery Date was September 5th 2018, so a little less than 6 months from first contact to Actual Surgery Date.👼👍😛❤

    I think I'm the front tiger in that picture, wanting to kick back and relax. Yeah I know exercise is good for tigers too , but don't it make my black stripes gray?

    Sad isn't it, with her peeved little face the only way they could be certain was that she closed her eyes! If animals go to Heaven ( and I still believe they do) I plan to give her pars if she requests them!

    And nausea still rears its Ugly Little Head for me and I am 8.5 months out from my RNY. Maybe my tummy will be more sensitive the rest of my life, but it's Okay, I would rather be a little queasy and 200 than a Cast-Iron digestion and approaching 400. Back then the only times I bubbled over was when I tried to eat myself into oblivion, believed if I didn't eat everything I saw somebody else might get IT, and that is a SAD SAD WAY TO THINK! Nothing tastes as good as Smaller Feels! Love and a Hug from Frustr8 in Ohio!

    Try infusing your water with Citrus slices or something else. One of my Bari-pals swore by cucumber slices, another Springs of Mint. I have always found RoomTemperture Waters were sent by Satan, so I iced or chilled them.
  13. And please celebrate for ME, I am about ready to go to ONEderland, yeah me that started out Obese, Sad and 365+ pounds, I remember how triumphant I felt to break out of 300-How Much Did You Say? into Twoferland and putting a "1" in front of my weight will be Glorious! I am Glad I Didn't Give up on Me!😛
