    I have family support as far as help for kids etc which is huge but I am alone for most of the day, and I just try to get by.

    I was actually doing group therapy prior to surgery and that is one of the things that got me prepared for it. I havent done them in these weeks because I haven't felt up to it. Might have to start again, I just didn't expect to feel this way.

    So... what do you do with all of your old clothe? How do you learn what to buy for the new body? I have a set budget in mind but I look at stuff and not sure how it'll look.
    Sorry if this post makes no sense I am super tired... but cant sleep.

    I just had surgery a few days ago and I am having guilt and regret. I am under a lot of pain especially in my throat, and my chest and my stomach skin area and insides. When I was in the OR I was having major anxiety and wanted to call it quits but felt too deep into it to call it quits. I am having a hard time taking in liquids and if i don't drink the required 5 cups, I will not be discharged today.

    I am trying to drink and walk but the pain is not letting me right now.
    I heard the nurse talk to another nurse calling me a big baby. I usually have high pain tolerance but my stomach feels all types of messed up.

    Any ideas? help? please.

    I gave all my clothes away. Some I gave to family members others I gave to Goodwill type stores. Some I threw in the trash.
    After I reached the Maintenance phase, I had fun filling up my closet again. Generally I am a great bargain shopper and purchase clothes at around a 70 percent discount. So the process is a little like treasure hunting. It gave me the chance to buy the latest fashions and trends. Made me a new man. Wife didn't appreciate this though. She thought I should look my age.

    We’re regular donaters. My grandson lives with us and grows like a weed so we’re always donating outgrown clothes. One difference is I’m thinking about taking my super comfy T-shirt’s (especially the ones from vacays) and making a quilt out of them. A big comfy reminder of my soon to be former, fat self.

    Find a good local place to donate your clothes to. Some people have a hard time getting rid of old items and this will ensure that you’ll have that “feel good” feeling when you say goodbye to your old clothes. I donate them to the school I work for because I know they go directly to students that need them. They aren’t resold somewhere. As for restocking, try goodwill or old navy for “transition” clothes.

    Know this song you're singing about no choice where the weight loss starts, my firsts were forearms, face, neck, chest, my Boobs are approaching tube Sox with tennis balls, then rump fat pad Before the actual,side to side measure went down, now thighs and belly, although I fear it never will go flat, too many years and 3 over 9 pounder babies did a evil thing to muscles there. And now I have gone from solid obese bloat to ridges where the fat has dissolved, this is NOT what I thought was meant by " Washboard Abs" think I could srubs stains out there first before doing laundry. Oh well, it is what it is! Still I am becoming half the Woman I once was and twice as thrilled as I thought I could be! Onederland may be not that far ahead, and T *H *A*T is sure something I doubted would ever come. Yeah I told my Bariatric Team it was my desire, but I had failed so many diets at so many diets, I was willing to spout the Company Line nut didn't truly believe glhard work would bring anything but exhaustion m But I had Exhausted all my other options, I was even a Structurelized Starvation failure, made me sick, not thin. You become pretty much a NonBeliever in defense. But from 365+ down to 234.6, it is as much a miracle as this Woman could find. Where will I stop? Dr Needleman's NP Valerie would be satisfied with just sub-200 for me at 73, but deep inside is a little kernal that says " Maybe you can still make it down to 175, maybe you'll make your dream of a 15 Junior!" I mentioned in another thread getting $1 bras and panties on clearance at Wal- Mart, well they are C cups, for my weight I am not excessively busty, many are D, DD or above! I told someone I was talking to I am a Bloated Athletic build, she said the two don't go together, well that's the category I belong in, once the Fat Shell finishes cracking and falls away, the world will see. And,because,i have 2 knee replacements and an ankle that was not adequately repaired I cannot get on my toes to run, but I would like to walk a portion of a marathon before I turn 75. Is that a silly senile dream? Sure hope not!

    Early on, I would use Milk of magnesia, a temporary fix, just to get things moving, so to speak. After bringing up the issue with my surgeon's office, they suggested I start taking a daily probiotic. I also started putting Benefiber in my Water. For no other reason than to save myself some money, I've stopped taking both the probiotic and Benefiber and replaced it with a homemade green smoothie every morning, as fruits and vegetables are naturally high in Fiber. That seems to have done the trick. For me, anyway.
