Today I left the obese category for good. I am just overweight. My two pairs of borrowed size 18 jeans are getting loose. Whoopee!

It sure feels good. I still do a double take when I see myself in the mirror...it's like I am seeing some other person... It seems like just yesterday I was heading off to Mexicali for the surgery...

By the summer I'll be able to shop for a "permanent" wardrobe...that will be FUN.

Thanks for all the support, y'all.

Horray for Cajun! (doing the happy dance) how great is that? I'm getting there. . they say slow and steady wins the race. . . well that is good. . .I'm hoping to have the majority of my weight lost by October/Nov. . . my mom is coming to visit me and hasn't seen me since 2008. . then i weighed 350 lbs. . . she knows i had the surgery but i don't think she understands the concept of it. . . to her it's just another attempt in my life to lose weight. . . just wait! Good luck Cajun. . . keep up the excellent work!

Sooooo Happy for you!!

I loved it when I hit the "overweight" mark!!

Now - I'm waiting to be "normal" heehee........ never gonna be "normal"..... but will weight wise!!

Thin-

My son live away from me and he came home after I lost 100 pounds....... and he actually cried! He couldn't believe I looked like I did...Kinda worried me at first.... I asked him , do I look sick or something. and his reply was- no. you look great!

Kinda surprised me......... so be prepared...... people who love you that you havn't seen in a while will act different.... I sure wasn't expecting that from my son.

Thanks Daisy. I've been real busy...have had some company visiting and done some travelling so I've been off the web for a while.

Hooray! Congratulations!

I started out as a lightweight and I'm just a few days away from being "overweight." Can't wait!

Congratulations! I can't count the times I've given all my big girl clothes away and bought small sizes...but I believe this surgery can help each of us make it the last time that happens, and the first time we really do get to have a normal wardrobe that lasts!

        Hello Joset, why haven't you been given a diet plan? Did you have your surgery in the UK? Every surgeon has a different diet, and no two people are on the same one. Weird I know. Contact your team if you can

        Mine was two weeks clear liquids

        Two weeks on soups, milk shakes and broths all with out lumps

        two weeks on pureed foods { I couldn't stomach this step }

        two weeks on soft foods like Protein yogurt, stewed mince and veg, soft scrambled eggs. Pate on hard crackers

        Then onto any food I fancied. If you struggle on any step or with any foods go back a step for a few days. Eggs, salmon and chicken are hard for beginners.

        Sorry I missed your original post, hope you are still on here.
