  1. Congrats!
    FindingMeWithin got a reaction from Lily66 in Starting with a lower BMI (30)   
    My BMI was 36. I’m 1 year out and I’ve lost 59 pounds. I didn’t lose as much as I thought but currently weigh 154 and I’m very happy there. I need to up my exercise plan but due to back problems it’s a struggle. The surgery was definitely worth it. Good Luck

    FindingMeWithin got a reaction from looly in Those last 14 lbs....   
    Looly, Great Question. I’m also dealing with those last 15 pounds and have been playing with the same one pound for a month or more. I’ve dropped my calories by 100 but not seeing a difference yet unless you count Hair loss. Ughh I know patience is a virtue but man we get spoiled with the rapid loss in the beginning. Overall, I’m thrilled at this life changing choice I made. I’m staying with my original plan but I do appreciate your question and the great answers coming in.

    Ironically the Premier Protein is my favorite too. I like the vanilla and caramel. Also, GENEPRO daily in my coffee.

    I bought the Geno Pro Protein. I reviewed it with my nutritionist. The scoop is smaller and I mixed it with diet ice tea, coffee, lemonade. It’s helped me. Good Luck and hang in there.

    Congratulations on needing smaller sizes its a wonderful feeling. I find TJ max a go too right now. And some really old favorites I hung onto.
    I’m so excited to be able to buy something not only smaller but stylish! From past weight loss experiences (non surgical) I’m nervous about getting rid of all those larger clothes only to rebuy them again. Been there done that. But I’ve got to let it go. I like the eBay idea too

    I agree with all the post above. Especially, forgive your self. We are blessed with a big life a head of us. Brush yourself off and get back on that horse. You deserve it. Put yourself first and put the stressors in line behind you.You have done awesome and without a doubt can do it again.

    Iliana, I made an appointment prior to surgery to see a psychologist post op. I wasnt sure how I would feel emotionally after surgery. Actually I felt pretty good a few weeks out but it really turned into a great benefit anyway.I can hash out a few things before they really bother me and she’s been wonderful.
    You’ve had major surgery so don’t rule out a medical issue. But with that said you have young children and life can get overwhelming. You might be surprised talking it over with an outsider.
    Best Wishes.

    Kris77, I think it’s a learning process for life. Don’t be too hard on yourself, you already feel bad enough. Sounds like your quite the inspiration so far and I also believe talking it out (confessing in a way) helps gets your mind back on track. Stay Positive, your not alone😉

    FindingMeWithin got a reaction from KimB7811 in All for nothing?   
    I too had an issue at one of my clinic appointments where I fell under 35. They were like if this stays here you wont meet the eligibility guide lines. I panicked as well after all the preop things I had done. I needed like 2 pounds to be back where I was. I had to also send in 2 years of Doctor checkups. Some of which were close but not 35. I have 4 comorbitities against me. Too say I was worried was an understatement. Finally,insurance approval came in.

    I haven’t had my surgery yet, but 10 hours is a long day and I’m guessing in a warehouse your pretty active. Maybe since you are only 2 months post op your body is trying to tell you to rest so you can heal. Take care of yourself.
