    apiane got a reaction from Cheeseburgh in Im scared of gaining weight through this crisis   
    I've reached my goal. My only concern is I normally weigh myself once a week in my gym at work. They've closed it, so I need to buy a scale (planning on doing so when I get paid tomorrow). Without weighing in, I wouldn't know if for some reason I'm gaining. My activity has gone down so I'm not going to freak if I gain a little. Just got to roll with the times.
    But people, without getting political, as someone with a Biochemistry degree, take this seriously. It's not a hoax and it's not the flu. Use common sense. Wash your damn hands.

    Sleeve. Didn't need to lose as much weight as some, no history of reflux. 7 mo out, no complications, ahead of schedule.

    apiane got a reaction from CapyCapybara in No one has noticed ...   
    I found that after I had lost about 60 lbs, all of a sudden all my work friends were saying "Whoa you look amazing! You've lost so much weight!" I think they had noticed, but it was around then that everyone decided to stay something. They've been consistently cheering me on since. So it's a weird thing.

    apiane got a reaction from themonk4u in Outpatient or hospital stay ? American Surgey Ctr.   
    I took 2 days in the hospital, but that's because the first pain reliever didn't relieve my pain. Most people are only overnight, so you should be okay.

    apiane reacted to ChubRub in Scale and Non-scale victories yesterday!!   
    My scale victory is hitting 40lbs!!! I feel HUMAN again!
    My non-scale victory is silly, but made me feel great! I went to Wawa yesterday and ordered a spinach salad from the kiosk. For those unfamiliar with Wawa, you order at a kiosk, and they call your number when your order is ready. They have hoagies, meatball sandwiches, chicken fingers, etc. There were about 8-10 people waiting for their food, when the guy behind the counter looked over at me, held up the bag and said "spinach salad?" Of all the people waiting, I looked like the type of person who would order a spinach salad! I felt like I weighed 120lbs, and practically skipped out the door!! LOL!!!

    Some people have supportive families, some people don't. It's your journey and your health. You may just have to decide for yourself what's best for you. Good luck :-)

    1. I'm down to L shirts from 2X
    2. I'm down a pant size to a 14 and have to wear my built on the 5th hole. If it's on the 4th hole I can take of my pants without undoing them.
    3. I am now the weight listed on my driver's license
    4. I'm officially halfway to my goal. 45 lbs to go!
    5. My sister almost cried last night after not seeing me for a while. She kept saying "You're so tiny!"
    Just wanted to share because I'm happy! Carry On!

    apiane got a reaction from catchthewind in astronomical lab bill   
    I don't know if this will help... but I'm having my 6 mo labs drawn at my PCP office along with some tests she wants... I haven't been given any indication that they won't be covered. At least I'll have my FSA money in case it's not. I'm sorry you're going through this. It might be worth calling and appealing. A lot of times you'll get a lower price just for speaking up. It couldn't hurt. Good luck.
