    Hi! I posted this in the Gastric Bypass forum but I thought I should post it here as well. The surgery type isn't important.
    I am a little more than 13 months post-op. Have lost 95 pounds but have stalled for a few months, and have had some bumpy roads getting here (serious double pneumonia for one). I would LOVE a buddy/partner (or buddies/partners - the more the merrier!) to help each other along the way - for support, common sense (i.e. "don't eat that Twinkie!"), all around motivation and friendship.
    I'm 56, mom of 2 grown kids, a nana to 1. I'm fun and outgoing and a great friend! (I feel like I'm filling out an ad to get a date ☺️)
    If anyone is interested - please let me know! Oh, I have about 50 pounds or so left to lose.
    Someone around the Baltimore area would be AWESOME - but via text, Facetime, whatever is great too.
    ❤️

    Here's a great link to a "closed" FB group, led by a woman who is a licensed therapist and who is successfully maintaining her VSG losses. She's pretty awesome! She has tons of fabulous free information and videos, and also offers very economical courses on doing the head work! I've learned so much from her!
    It's called Bariatric Mind Masters. You have to join FB, and request to join this group. No one except fellow group members can see or share stuff from this group.

    Thank you! It actually went very well. I haven’t had to take the pain meds at this point and have been able to walk around and sit up. It’s just very sore in my left side, but my doctor told that I would be.

    Sit up in your recliner, if you have one. if not use PLENTY of pillows around you, prop up anything that needs propping, buy body pillows, w-mart has them so I would guess Target, Meijer, and perhaps Kohls. I would suggest K- Matt but they're an species almost extinct, along with Sears. I always enjoyed shopping them both along with Montgomery Ward. M.W always sized their Juniors up to 21, I was wearing their 19 and 21 Juniors when b I met up with and dated my late Husband. He always denied the memory, but we met at his Aunt Ruth's when I was 12 and he would was 15. Ooh I wanted him to notice me but he was a big bad Freshman from Columbus , and couldn't be bothered by my hero worship. 9 years later we re- met, sparks of electricity were there, and we ended up marrying. Maybe it was merely static electricity, shame my Mama didn't. use Downy,fabric softener sooner. Maybe that would have ridded the situation of those pesky sparks. But it wasn't EXACTLY bad all the time, 3 beautiful children, I was warm, not exposed to wars, had food when i needed my sorrows allayed. And in the culture, I had no reason to complain, so I didn't.Wasn't forced to work financially, warm , indoors instead. of homeless I had found a man, so happiness was optional, now I was to live only through him , A MRS was the only degree required in Mid-Ohio in the late 60s, and if I cried myself to sleep nobody much cared and I still had my false first lover FOOD to turn to, and it never told me that I wasn't good enough , that I was doing or acting right. And I was passive , quiet, demeaned myself just to retain a man. After all I had promised to stay in my wedding vows,my one bit of gumption- I refused to have the word " obey" retained in the wedding vows, it might have still been implied but I refused to SAY IT! And it was a Pleasant Valley Sunday in Status Quo Land , Another life ago, things are much different now, Better Times? God please forgive me saying but YES YES YES, I stand up for myself, I can live sans the expected props and guess what? I am loved for myself, not somebody's daughter, wife or mother, but ME. And as I heal, it is by ME, for ME, because bottom line, sink,or swim, I have ME And Me aLone, so thats where my loyalty must lie.

    God will be watc hing and helping, where do you think surgeon's skills come from? Yeah medical school and residencies help, but they basically are God's instruments of change. Keep a smile on your face, hope in your❤, peace in your spirit and you should do just fine. Update us when the deed is dobe!

    I’m halfway through purée week- get to move on to soft foods Friday - so excited. I had a lapband revision to DS on 6-7, tuna and chicken salad purée along with cottage cheese have been go to for me this week and all goes down fine. Adding in shakes here and there to hit my 90g Protein goal (plus they count as liquid). Just tried a caramel premier it’s pretty good. No nausea no constipation- if anything it’s the opposite. Mild soreness occasionally but I haven’t used even a Tylenol in a week. full steam ahead!

    ✍️ My surgery is tomorrow too. I just had to wash off all the antiseptic wipes because I forgot no shaving 24 hr rule and shaved in the shower tonight! I was itching all over. I am wide awake and have to be at the hospital for 5:30 am HST. No sleep for me tonight either I guess. Prayers for all of us!
