    You look amazing! We had the same surgeon and I hope I can get to where you are! I had a friend who did just what you are planning...she moved to Asheville, NC and is LOVING her new life! Good luck with whatever you choose!

    kellym1220 got a reaction from bufbills in UGH - Thanksgiving Regrets   
    This is almost my EXACT same story!! Snacking, tasting, drinking...up 3 pounds! I actually opened a bottle of good champagne (a splurge for me) and no one else wanted any!! So I DRANK THE WHOLE BOTTLE! (Luckily this was after dinner and close to bedtime!) I made a Protein Shake sugar free eggnog and had one of those with brandy and then, since my mom is still visiting, continued the food fest through today. I plan on being as good as I can today (we are getting lobster and stone crab for lunch and having homemade turkey Soup for dinner) and hopping back on the wagon tomorrow! No snacking today!

    It's soooo hard not to compare yourself to others! But I weigh less now than I did in 2017 (when I started using myfitnesspal so that makes me happy! In fact, this may be pretty close to the lowest I've been since then, and I feel way more confident about maintaining this weight loss. I looked back and I am one pound away from the lowest I've been over the past three years and that was in in October 2018 (and I was probably on HCG, which I think totally screwed up my metabolism!) Anyway, 60 pounds is amazing, it's 20% of your body weight, which I think helps put it in perspective!
    Take care and keep drinking that water!

    kellym1220 got a reaction from ms.sss in How Often Do You Weigh Yourself?   
    Well thanks to you all, and an Amazon Black Friday sale, I actually weigh myself TWICE each morning now! I haven't been able to hook my scale to bluetooth (either of them....grrrrr) but I will ask my son to figure it out tomorrow. I have a Fitbit scale and the Renphro and they are weighing consistently, although this morning the Renphro was 0.1 favorable, so that's the weight I went with!! LOL

    kellym1220 got a reaction from ms.sss in Under eye circles are DARK   
    I'm not sure if there is a correlation, but I was getting very concerned about the dark circles under my eyes. I was having my follow up with my PCP and asked her to check my Vitamin levels and apparently I had been overdoing it on the Iron (I bought the BariatricPal Multivitamin ONE with 45mg of Iron). So I stopped taking that one every day (especially since too much iron = constipation) and now my dark circles are gone (and so is the constipation!) I am meeting with my doctor on Thursday (my PCP not my surgeon) and I am going to ask how much Iron I should be taking so I can hopefully get this right!

    I went through my clothes yesterday and got rid of everything, including jeans, that were too big! It felt amazing! I still have clothes in 16 (slightly too big) and 14 slightly too small...but I'll get there and the 16's will go too!

    kellym1220 got a reaction from bufbills in How many days did it take you to feel ok?   
    So glad to hear it! constipation can be a b*tch! I started taking Colace nightly. That will definitely help. Then it turned out I was taking too much Iron (I'm almost 4 months out) and once I stopped, that situation resolved! (Yay)
    Good luck! I'm 57 and I wish I had done this YEARS ago!!

    Every morning, after peeing, naked! I know that if I let it go, I will stop weighing and that's when the pounds creep up! I don't let it get to me (although I have been known to crawl back in bed until I have to pee again)!

    MIne doesn't...but it never has. I have an Iron stomach, always have. To be honest, it probably rumbles 2 times more than before, but that means twice a day, not once.
