  15. Happy Mother's Day to all the sleeved Moms and to be sleeved Moms. May we all be around many more years to enjoy our families! :biggrin2:
  16. I hit 50 lbs lost today. wooohoooo. I'm down from a size 20/22 to 16's. I know I've lost well over 30 inches total. And...I feel fantastic!!! :lol0:
  17. Hi Bigga, welcome to the boards. I have family and friends that live in Abbeville and the surrounding areas. Congratulations on moving forward with surgery. From my point of view it's the best thing I have ever done for myself. I spent over 30 years dieting and losing only to gain it back plus more. This is a great gift and I can tell by your attitude that you will work it and do well. Best wishes to you and keep us posted!

    Newly Sleeved

    Trinity, it really does vary from person to person. There are so many factors involved. Age, metabolism, diet, exercise. Some lose more rapidly than others do. The good thing is that we are all headed down. I'm 15 weeks out and have lost 53 lbs as of this morning.

    It will get better. The first couple of weeks can be a roller coaster ride. Hang in there with a positive attititude and know it will be better soon. Praying for you to feel well soon.

    No appetite at all.....

    firefly, it is a great feeling to be losing weight and not dieting. It is just melting off. I eventually would like to get all my protein from healthy food, but like you I am still using Protein shakes or shots. I can still only eat 2 - 2 1/2 ozs of food per meal, so if I don't do a shake or shot everyday there is no way I can get in the 60 =70 grams of protein I need per day. :scared0:

    No appetite at all.....

    ryansgirl, I've started drinking tea also. When I quit the coffee I took up decaf herbal tea and I really enjoy it every morning.

    No appetite at all.....

    angel, I think it is a phase we are going through and like Tiff said, it will pass. We are all headed in the right healthy direction and that's what counts.

    No appetite at all.....

    Great advice wanna! I have been forcing myself to eat regardless if I am hungry or not. I look at it as fuel, and my body needs it to function.
