    Weight Watchers Online: Support Thread

    Hi guys, my name's Leticia and I was banded on 2/18/10. I've lost 70 pounds but have been stalled for about 5 months, and it's very frustrating. I started doing weight watchers last week and have lost 1 pound so far. I'm hoping this will help me get back on track!
  3. Hi! When are you having your surgery?

  4. The week after I kind of moved in slow motion but slowly I started to feel better. Are there some good places to hike, I've done Squaw Peak once a looooong time ago and about died half way up, I'd like to take my fiance on a Saturday for a change.

  5. No worries! I just went back today (took 4 days off) and it was not too bad. I started getting really tired at the end of the day and couldn't wait to get home and take my painkillers and lay down flat. But overall, I'm doing really well (at least I think so!).

  6. I'm sorry I never got back to you on your questions, I feel awful! I went back on Monday for half a day, then full the rest of the week. I have a desk job as well. Since your surgeries done, how are you feeling?

  7. I went through True Results in Scottsdale. I had mine done in February...so far I've lost about 50 lbs. I've just been back and forth on what kind of exercising to do. I don't have a gym membership so I'm doing like Brazil Butt Lift and Slim in 6. It's been to muggy to go running this past week or so.

  8. Hey there! I am going through Dr. David C. Johnson at AZ Weight Loss Solutions, what about you?

  9. Hey there, I"m from Phoenix! Who are you going through for your surgery? Good luck!

  10. I do 45 mins to an hour cardio I mostly do treadmill and i do weight training

  11. What exercises are you doing?

    I don't have many before pictures, I'm always the one taking the pictures....prefering not to be in them.
  14. I had my surgery Feb 18, 2010 and had a hiatal hernia repaired too. I felt like I was dying the first 2 days or so. I was almost back to normal though by day 6. Good luck!

    About 150lbs overweight & Waiting for Approval

    I started my journey at 292 and had a BMI of 50 and also have no comorbidities. I also have Blue Cross Blue Shield. I was approved within 1 week of submission. Nowadays it seems like the insurance companies would prefer to pay for surgery than have to fork out more money in the end with the high cost of obesity. That's all I can really tell you.
