Welcome Back! Remember me? Dee?

I remember you! Congrats on your beautiful baby girl! I am so happy for you!

It's great having you back! Don't stay away so long!

I do remember you, Dee! I used to read your blog but I lost all my bookmarks...did you have your plastics? You were truly an inspiration! And thanks, I feel flattered that someone remembered me. rolleyes.gif

Hey guys! May 1 works for me too...even though the time conflicts with The Amazing Race (my favorite show). I'll give it up that night just for you. I missed the last get-together, so I'm really looking forward to this one. I am on a long-term plateau, but still only about 20 pounds from goal.

I'll see if my daughter is available to join us that night. She's down about 65 pounds since her surgery in October.

I remember you! Hahaha, okay, that's not fair since I know you IRL, too. But this is weird timing, I have to admit, because I haven't logged into here in, oh, I don't know how many months. Over a year for sure. I've been getting more emails on this thread lately, but I hadn't been reading them. Just today I was thinking I probably ought to log in and stop watching this thread. But now I see Chrys has logged in, and she has been my inspiration all this time. Maybe this is a sign I should keep on checking in on here, even if it's a little bit. Okay, so I won't stop watching this thread after all...

I have been on a plateau for a loooooong time. Well over a year. Although, during that plateau was a small peak and then down as I want on a doctor approved "band holiday" as he calls them. Luckily, the weight swing was only 10 pounds, so it wasn't too big of a deal. But I'm still a few pounds heavier than my lowest (but I think most of that is actually muscle gain since I started doing personal trainer sessions, too). Anyway, I know I am making poor food choices, so that's the cause of my plateau. That, and I started to develop reflux when my band is "too tight." I put that in quotes because I actually liked the tightness level, but the tightness level doesn't like me. =P

Anyway, that's enough about me. Best of luck to all the new and soon-to-be-new bandster with Dr. K! I'll have to do some reading to catch up on who some of you are. =)

I think I used to call you - "Greenie"

I had my first phase of plastics 12/09 and in 6 weeks from today, I will be having my facelift, lower bodylift, anchor cut Tummy Tuck, auto butt augmentation, breast lift and augmentation - in two procedures.

I'm so excited!

      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.

      I have a surgery date, I have my next doctor appointment on Wed and then Thursday I start my 2 week liquid pre-op diet. I am very nervous right now. I know it's going to be a tough mind game.

      Week 5 Post Op Report

      What a journey! I am 5 weeks from surgery and a total of 24.4 pounds down!

      I feel amazing! I’ve incorporated a ton of walking and I’m using my Apple Watch to help me along! I have closed all three of my fitness rings for 11 days straight! Ok, so I am in LOVE with my Apple Watch. I've had it for almost a year and I am just now tapping into it's fitness power!

      I keep on top of my protein, vitamins and biotin!

      I struggle with water but I average about 50 ounces a day. I have only had one day where I had to “purge” because something did not agree with me. Tuna and my Tiny Tummy still do not agree so I’m going to leave it alone for a while!

      I walk on average a little more than 3 miles a day for my exercise but manage to get in at least 13,000-17,000 steps a day depending on how my schedule goes.

      I get up every hour and walk around for at least five minutes. Then if I’m watching a show I get up and walk in place during the commercials!

      I meet with my doc this week for a progress report.

      I have one more week before I graduate from soft foods to the final phase!

      I’ve got my cookbooks ready, my food scale ready and my measuring plates ready!

      I could NOT be more happy with my progress! I feel amazing and I’m grateful to have this tool!

      None Scale Victory: My rings on my finger are spinning!

        Sabrina, you are doing so well. I'm truly inspired and equally excited for you. The view you shared is breathtaking and relaxing, I'm in love with the ocean. Please keep sharing. Where did you find the trackers and how do I access them? My date is approaching the 31st, I'm in liquid diet mode. I see my surgeon on the 17th. Any advice?

      2. SabrinaGoddess

        You got this sis! You totally do.
        The ocean is so peaceful. Some days I get blessed with seeing whales, dolphins and seals. It is truly amazing.

        You can go to under our name at the top left section and click "TICKERS" you can create them there. Then when you lose weight you just go to "my surgery" and change your weight and they will adjust.

        On the liquids, do sugar free pop-cycles. They are more like a treat than a liquid and they count as 2 ounces each! Liquids not the funnest part of our journey but who cares....LOL. I do like the IsoPure clear liquid protein drinks, you can get them at GNC. The flavors are ok. I also LOVED Kettle and FIre Broth and Epic Broths so I drank them all the time, it's good for you. It's BONE BROTH. Kinda pricey but the good stuff usually is.

      3. Krimsonbutterflies

        Thank you for the encouragement/positivity!!! I'm going to conquer this liquid phase, moment by moment. I also appreciate the mini tutorial of how to get the ticker. I'm thinking of starting status updates after my pre-op visit with the surgeon on Friday. I really enjoy the personal perspective and experience being shared, without feeling like the thread is being dominated. I look forward to how each person is approaching the wls lifestyle. Thank you lady, good night. Happy Whale watching. I love seeing the dolphins at Hermosa Beach.
