I just looked at my ticker a little while ago and realized that as of today I am NORMAL!! (I'm sure my family may disagree lol) My BMI is NORMAL. I'm not even a teeny bit overweight - at least according to the charts.

Nine more pounds and I will be looking pretty darned good and thirty more and I'll be back to being 22 yrs. old again. Well, 22 with wrinkles.

;-)

Itstime how are you feeling? Sis is still a bit rocky.

I'm so excited. Today I was trying to find a little jacket in my closet to go with my jeans. I figured they 'grew up' with me (stretched as I stretched) so they could probably 'grow down' with me too. Um, wrong! Every one I tried on made me feel like a kid trying on Mommy's clothes. :-) So now I have to go around nearly naked because I have so few clothes that fit right now but I don't want to buy more because I'm on the verge of dropping another size.

I have to clean out my closet. It is huge and stuffed full but nothing to wear. Some of the stuff still have tags on them because I always bought at year-end sales for the next year. I am going to have to learn how to sell on ebay.

good for you rosebud!

I too cannot wait for the problem: closet full of nothing fits.

I do have quite a bit of that now at 2 months post. (-40)

I did have to go get some pants, as I was walking out of my pants. Hubby insisted! LOL

congrats to you for being NORMAL !!!

January is already nuts, but definitely February. We'll need to set a date soon. I haven't seen postings by Ms. Yates. How is she doing?

Rosebud,

I am doing so well, still on full liquids but lots of creamed Soups and they help keep my energy up. I try so hard to get in the Protein and Water. What's up with your sister? Is it her meds? I am so sorry she's not feeling well. Hope that everything evens out and she starts feeling good again. I love my sleeve.

Linda

      I feel like I've finally gotten past the biggest hurdle. Surgery date is September 6th, the day after Labor Day, and yesterday I got my insurance approval letter. I've followed everything they've told me to do, and I've even lost 30 lbs on my own since hubby had to change his diet for diabetes. No worries now about having to do 4 weeks of the liver shrinking diet instead of 2. On my initial visit, if I had gained just 5lbs I would have had to do 4 weeks. It's getting closer. Just 2 more months to wait.

        Although the prep work took energy, I found the biggest hurdle was post-operative. The first 48 hrs were extremely uncomfortable. I did an overnight and trying to down the liquids, Tylenol, and especially the barium was rough. Thankfully though, I got away with only having to have 1 belly injection after surgery. Needless are not my thing.

      I am looking for people to connect with that are 4-5 years out. Many of the support sights I go to are all newbies. And while I enjoyed that when i first had my surgery and found it useful, I am looking to exchange ideas with folks that are out a few years. I am slowly gaining weight back and losing my excitement. I don't want that!

      How do you stay focused? I'm struggling a bit the past three days.  All I want is sweets and carbs.  I have no clue what changed but for some reason I'm craving hard.  I'm literally dreaming about food and when I wake up, I'm thinking about my next meal.  I'm not "hungry" but so munchy.  I'm trying to stay focused, busy, exercise and the likes but this looking struggle is getting to be so hard.  I meet with my nutritionist tomorrow and I'm so hopeful she has some advice.  My protein intake is great, liquids on point, even throwing in some raw veggies and berries to curb the sweet/carb craving.  Thoughts?
