Sorry for being such a whiner. I was just feeling down. I do see that I'm luck though.

Doing well. I was just wondering about everyone myself. Started at 217 and down to 174. I've had to empty my closet twice and need to do so again. My monthly support group has clothing exchanges too. Feeling good and wishing I had done this sooner!

I too have changed my clothes twice in my closet, what a wonderful feeling. Hoping to do it again and again.

What is your goal to get to?

I would like to get to 140, I am 5'4'' Another 30 more lbs to go, but it seems to be harder now:(.

I don't have a number in mind really. I just figure I will know at the point I feel good. The 150's would probably make me happy. I am feeling so good already. I'm probably thinner now than I've been in 20 years! Haha

I started at 265, I'm down to 210 as of this morning. So, that's 55 lbs. down. I have at least 45 to go, but I know I'll get there. But, I have really good news! I just spent a week in NYC on vacation with my family - I let my rules slide just a little bit and had small portions of breads, some mashed potatoes, pizza and of course, a few Desserts thru-out the week. WAAAAY more carbs than I've had in a looooonnggg time! I never really over did it or made myself sick, but I got close a few times. I thought for sure I would have gained a few pounds, but believe it or not, I actually lost 1.5 lbs over the week! Whoo-hoo! Now that I'm home, it's back to basics for the next few weeks until Christmas hits... My goal is to be at 200 by New Year's... Fingers crossed!

Hello my fellow July 8 sleevers. I have not been on this forum for ages. Possibly because I have regressed and avoided taking ownership of my poor efforts

      2 Days Till Surgery!   It's time! Time to start my clear liquids! I am prepared! Tomorrow I will only take in clear protein, bone broth and jello for the next two days.   My surgery will be done on Monday, December 9th at 8:00 AM. I have to be at the hospital at 5:30 AM (EWWW) but who cares? LOL. Funny how you don't get all upset about doing things that are not so fun when you are doing it for a purpose! . I don't plan on doing much this weekend. I have one errand to do and after that is over I will return to my hotel room and go into prayer and meditation. Believer or not, you got to do what you need to do in order to get your heart and mind in a healthy place. . I have a Pre-Op drink I ordered that is supposed to really help your body hydrate before surgery. It's not in the photo just because I don't have it in my hands yet. I will put photos of it up when I get it. . All I can think about it how blessed I am to be able to get this done. I know how it feels to be healthy and happy then have it snatched away. It makes this all the more joyful for me. . So, it's time to lay it down and start letting my mind process what we are getting ready to do. . By the way...funny story. My doc said he had to cancel a surgery because his patient said she thought "Mashed Potatoes" was a clear food! Um, there will be no mashed potatoes for me! LOL This is HAPPENING! . Last thought for today: I knew when they drew my blood yesterday it was going to leave a nasty bruise and I was right. I am so sensitive to that kind of stuff.

      Cold no.2 since surgery. The funny part is now Ive lost my voice. I feel better in my sinuses now, but my voice is 90% gone. Losing your voice as a person who talks as a teacher for a living is so funny. You feel normal and when you speak, nothing comes out. I hope it goes over by Monday, but if it doesn't oh well. Ill be at school and cant talk to the students. Oh gee darn.

        I hope it gets better. I sing and I know how it is to lose your voice. I always get scared that it won't come back. LOL but it always does. Try Fisherman's Friend. It's nasty but it works. You can find it on amazon.

        Ohh..I love fisherman's friend..especially the sugar-free ones. Here, we can get it in all the shops. They are strong though.

      Got my haircut today and its always amazing how much better i feel afterwards.
      i have always considered it an odd thing that i enjoy a haircut so much.
      The smell of the barbershop (no salons allowed) and the whole scissors and clippers feel and sound is so relaxing.
      I have had the same barber since 1987 and i am not sure how i will handle it if that guy ever dares to die on me. I am pretty sure that the magazines on the bottom of the stack are the same ones from my first visit.
      just started Ron Powers -Mark Twain Biography- enjoying it
