  5. Brenda, so good to hear from you and thank you so much for the birthday wish sleeve sister!! Tell your mom hello and I also FEEL like a totally different person. I can't tell you how many people don't recognize me and ask me if I'm related to Barbara (ME) cause I look just like her. I have so many funny stories regarding that. Hope all is well your way.

  6. Hey there! So good to hear from you and congrats on your date!!! That's fantastic. You can do it. I'm soooooooooooooooo happy I did it I can't even begin to tell you how it's changed my life. I'm pretty muchs tuck at 149, but thats 86 pounds lost so I'm not conmplaining. I would like to drop another 10 but am ok if I don't. Keepn me posted on how you are doing.

  7. Renee, thanks so much for your kind words. I'm still on this journey with you. I have about 30 more pounds to go. I know I'll get there, it's just slower as your go. You will be an inspiration to the next generation coming through. Good luck on your date and please keep me posted on your progress.

  8. Thanks for your comments! Best of luck to you on this fantastic journey.

  9. Just popping in to see how you are doing?

  10. You look fantastic. I'm so glad to hear you are doing good. 50 lbs? Wow...that's a lot. Congrats and keep up the good work. I'm down 75 1/2 now and only have 29 1/2 more to go. I'm determined. Keep in touch.

  11. Just be strong. The liquid diet and pre diet, and the first couple of weeks after surgeyr are the hardest part, but I promise you it gets easier. Good luck with your journey. I don't regret doing it one bit and definitely wish I had done this years ago.

  12. Ok, I haven't heard from you in forever!!! What's up and how are you doing? I hope all is well with you. I'm down 74lbs and have about 30 more to go. I just posted a current pictue to my album. Write back to let me know how you are doing,.

  13. Hoping everything went well for you.

  14. Rod, congrats on being sleeved! I hope all is going well for you. Just make sure to drink lots of fluid in the beginning and not worry to much about the protein. It will all come together. Love your new pic! ^5

  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.

  17. I'm in Monument CO. I had my surgery on Jan 19th with Dr. Aceves in Mexico. I had originally scheduled with Dr. Snyder, but then I had insurance problems and ended up having to self pay. I did attened Dr. Snyders seminar and loved him.

  18. Hi Christie, was reading one of your posts on the board and saw you are from Colorado. I am too. Welcome to the site and best wishes to you on your journey.

  19. Hey Rob, haven't heard from you in a bit. Hope everything is going well for you and things are still on target. Looking forward to meeting you when you are in Colorado. We just had a huge snow storm the last 2 days. It's nuts..for this time of year.

  20. Hi DeeDee, Hadn't seen any posts from you lately. Hope everything is going great your way.

  21. Rob, email me at barsch57@hotmail.com and I'll forward you my cell #. Would love to meet you and your wife. It doesn't have to be in Monument, it could be in Colorado Springs too. Let me know.



  22. Brenda, good to hear from you. I was wondering how you are doing. 44 lbs is fantastic. The stalls are to be expected as we all know. It just sucks when that happens. I'm down 43 lbs as of this morning. I am having difficultly getting the water in also. I never do less than 50 oz, but I need to be doing more. Sometimes I just can't seem to get it down. It's not good to be dehydrated. Keep drinking as much as you can and please keep in touch.



  23. Ready, I'm glad to hear you are doing good. Everything is great with me. I feel so much better. The exercising is difficult but I'm maintaining 4 miles 3 to 4 times a week. I just wish the weight would come of faster. Who doesn't right? We take years to put it on and want it gone yesterday. lol Good to hear from you and please keep in touch!

  24. Hi Brenda, haven't heard from you in a while. How are you doing? Are things still going smoothly for you. I'm doing great and feeling better than I have in many years. I'm down 41 as of the other day. weeehaaaa.

  25. I'm doing fantastic. I'm at a stage now where I can pretty much eat anything I want. The neat thing is I don't want the food I used to want. I've tried eating things like wings, which I used to love, and no go. I just don't like them. I'm down 41 pounds. I feel the best I've felt in years. I'm glad I did this. It's good to hear you are doing good. keep in touch please.
