  6. 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.

    14 Weeks out

    Thanks Firefly!!! Look at your ticker. You are right around the corner!! Congrats!:thumbup:
  15. Rob, no problem. I know how vacations go. Glad you had a safe trip here and home. I'm so excited for your surgery and can't wait to hear how you are doing. You are in my prayers for a safe and uneventful surgery. I can't tell you in words that you would understand how wonderful this surgery has been. I'm 1/2 lb away from my half way goal. Can you believe it?

  16. Christie, I have some dress clothes in sizes 22 - 18 if you are interested in those, I hadn't taken those to Goodwill Yet. I have several dress sweaters, a few skirts with matching tops or jackets. You are more than welcome to them if you would like.

    14 Weeks out

    Absolutely. I wish I had known you would want them before today. I just brought 15 pairs of jeans from size 22 to 18 to the good will this weekend. I'll start saving them as I'm going down and we can meet one day. I go up to Littleton quite often.

    Sleep apnea?

    I don't have any hard facts either, but I also was diagnosed with severe sleep apnea about a year ago. In 45 mins I stopped breathing 46 times and sometimes for up to a minute. I no longer stop breathing and I no longer need my cpap since losing weight. That in itself is huge for me because I hated having that thing on my face at night...it was so uncomfortable. I never had to have mine adjusted as I dropped enough weight to make a difference pretty quickly. So I went from full force use to not needing it anymore at all.
