Hi gang thought I would try this again this month. This will be a challenging monthf or me. I have 1 daughter that is playing in regionals and states for soccer, another daugther we are seeing graduate from high school, plus we are on a cruise the first week...so there are going to be a lot of emotions flowing as well as a lot of time spent away from home.....and away from me making my own food. I set a conservative goal of just the 2 pounds a week. Hoefully I will be able to meet that. Good luck to everyone!!

I forgot an introduction: I'm Lisa from Illinois. I work full time as a cost analyst for Electromotive Diesel, they make train engines. I have 2 kids ages 10 and 5. I'm divorced but my exhusband and I are getting remarried in Vegas in June. We were married nearly 12 years, divorced for 1. We are truly each others best friend. Looking to get back to my high school weight days of at least 160 when I "thought" I was fat then. Good luck to everyone!!

      6 Weeks Post Op!

      My world is drastically different! I now walk 3 to 4 miles a day and I’m constantly getting up to move my body! .

      I close my Apple Watch rings daily and about 4 to 6 days a week I double or triple them!

      I have been released to have all foods. When I reintroduce some I need to start at 1 ounce to see how “Tiny Tummy” likes it!

      I am not reintroducing sugars, coffee or junk! I did not pay close to $13,000 to fail! .

      I went to get follow up bloodwork done this week and my numbers are all in the perfect range! .

      This is my new world and I am happy it!

        Congratulations. It’s a great feeling when the weight disappears & you can start to do so much more. 😁

      @DaisyChainOz, @Arabesque ... am totally thinking of both of you this very moment as I watch the final set of the Millman-Federer match at the AO... I am riveted and literally screaming at the TV...

        I didn’t see it either but I wish I had now for both the battle on court & the ball tampering accusations flying around everywhere now.

      Went to see the Star Wars movie yesterday. (Glad I waited as no one else was in the cinema for the midday session - yes!) Hadn’t been to the cinema for a few months and OMG I suffered the most terrible butt pain.  So uncomfortable. Started after 30 mins. Was in the premium cinema so grabbed a cushion to sit on but it didn’t help. Ended up sitting sideways in the chair, stretched out on an ottoman. Soooo super glad no one else was there. Sometimes I do miss my old butt fat cushioning... but not really.
