    3 weeks out

    Today I am 3.4 pounds from Onederland and just 6 pounds from my half way point. I just realized that at 197.4 I will be half way to goal weight! I have lots to be thankful for! My sleeve is a blessing!

    Easter Challenge!

    Good morning! I have decided to join this challenge to help me focus! I am 13 months out from surgery - made goal in 10 but want to get back on track. My goal was 155 - got down to 144 but currently at 149 - I allow myself 5 pounds of "bounce back" and have seemed to stay within that 5 pounds for the past 3 months... but today at 149 I am at the top of those bounceback pounds and want to stay focused on doing the right things - So here I am. My goal will be to get back to 145. Feb 27 - starting weight: 149.2 Goal 145 I am accountable for what goes in my mouth and how much I move my body! Good luck everyone! Kim
  3. Back on track and ready to focus - need to get in more proteins! I do not want to cross over my 5lb bounce back - keeping it below 150 and sitting today at 148.9 - goal is to get back to 146 in the next couple of weeks!

  4. I used Dr Kelly and Trish too - and could not be more pleased. I am a year out - made my goal in less than 10 months. I consider Trish a friend... Please tell her hi from Kimmie in MInnesota... she'll know me - we still talk and text often. I love them both! Kim

    The Basics Boot Camp

    I just updated my status... I need to get my carbs under control... I have been super busy at work and NOT making good choices so I am going to start my own bootcamp basics starting NOW. I am currently weighing 146 - up 2 from my lowest of 144... UP is not the way I want to go - and I know exactly why it happened.... POOR food CHOICES. So back on track I go! This is a journey!
  8. I need to get my carbs under control. Up 2 pounds from my lowest weight of 144 - carbs creepin back in that is what is happening. I will get it under control starting NOW!

    All Inclusive (& Affordable) Self-Pay In Us

    That is a great price point for those who are self pay and wish to stay in the USA> But there are so many wonderful doctors in MX who have preformed the VSG many more times than most docs in the USA. I go for those with the most experience and best out comes. My best advice is to do your research - whether in the USA or out - check references.
  12. For those of you in a cold climate like me...Warming thought-first day of spring is less than 60 days away!

  13. Shut your eyes and see what can be...

  14. Live your life today... not tomorrow!

    Super Saturday Weigh In

    I gained a pound this week... but I am ok... I am still 10 under goal and glad to have at least a 5 pound cushion! Surgery Jan 6, 2011 5'8" starting weight 239.8 Goal 155 Current 145
  17. CONGRATS! I am a Dr kelly patient also - your experience sounds similar to mine. My journey has been pretty easy... stay focused and on plan! Protein first, lots of water - and you will do great! I am one year out as of Jan 6th. I am 11 pounds below my goal weight. Best gift I ever gave myself!

    Post-op Gallbladder Issues

    Yep - Just had my gallbladder out on Dec 12. My VSG was Jan 6, 2011. I did not start having problems until this past November when I had a couple of GB attacks that dropped me to the floor in a fetal position.... PAINFUL. Now that its gone I am just adjusting to what I can eat (most things) and what I cannot eat... Get it out - that is my advise!

    Tanning Bed

    Yes wait a few weeks till your incisions are healed or they will scar! Mine did - because I went to a tanning bed 3 weeks after and my scars are dark... way darker than my skin or any other scars I have.
  22. How can anyone not like mornings? God gave you another day, Get up, give him your worries and enjoy the day!
