    Labor Day Challenge

    ok...so this is prob not a ? i should ask on this thread.... but what is everyone doing to keep the weight loss steady...fitness wise.
  3. Im at 10cc right now. I go for my 4th fill tomorrow. I think im almost there but i can still definetly eat more than 4oz. I hope i dont get too tight. I experience tightness when i eat and smtimes i experience the tightness with water. But there are sometimes I feel like i can eat and eat and eat. I too would like someone to explain in detail what the 'sweet spot' is all about. am I there and just dont know it? I know that sounds dumb but.. really am I?

    Need Advice Re: Co-workers

    I started to tell sm folks about the surgery and got sm really unwanted 'support'... ' bel- you dont need that all you need to do is go to the gym and eat better ...' :biggrin: :blink:WELL DUH!!!:mad: if it was just that easy dont you think I would have done that ages ago! THE NERVE!! So I decided to keep it to myelf and just told the ppl that had to know... My SR REP and my BOSS. Im sure ill be so excited after the surgery that I will tell the whole company! but for now.. its a hush hush operation. Everything will be on a need to know basis. '.... gym and eat better.' SERIOUSLY! lol

    so..... It went better than expected! I see my surgeon on the 28th. Im shooting for a surgery date of May 26. Id really like to hv my surgery earlier than that but Id like to get my $$$ situation all good before i hv my surgery. Right now im doing cash and sm care credit. Id like not to do the care credit at all if possible. I do hv a question though... Has anyone ever gone through a place like true results and they told you that you had to have a pysch eval or a sleep test for clearance. What happens if you dont do them? is it up to the center to clear you or is up to the doctor? Im just asking because I was asked to do a psych but a friend of mine told me i didnt hv to do it cause the doc doesnt require it. Im confused... :smile2:
