Good Luck, I have a 17 year old and have decided to wait till after he graduates next year to date. Not that I have had anyone interested lol I live in a small town and I kind of have this feeling if you were not interested before I'm not interested now.

Hi Skinny. Congrats on your hard work! My journey is just beginning. I have an appointment with Dr. Scarborough March 2. Nervous but excited! It's like I'm waiting for my new life to begin! Any advise for the nervous newbie?

Hi Ramona, just let go all your fears. Never been happier. Dr. Scarborough is fantastic and I recommend him to everyone. Just get in your mind that you must follow everything they tell you to do. Exercise is the key. I starter walking 30 minute the day I came back from the hospital and last week I ran my first 5K. Keep a diary of everything you eat (myfitnesspal.com), eat slowly, stick to your Vitamin regiment, buy a fitbit (highly recommended) and be patient. Keep positive and the good will come soon!

I love Houston! Congratulations on your weight loss, you should try one of the piano bars downtown. They are a fun time and the crowd is older than college aged.

        It will be interesting to watch as this theory develops. Thanks for posting!

      Feel like it's time for a status update, I haven't been on here regularly in a while and I need to keep my mindset focused on my goals.
      I haven't weighed myself in ~ 3 weeks.  I think I'm becoming the opposite of "obsessive" about tracking my progress and it could cause me some issues.  The good thing is that there have still been quite a number of NSV's happening that is telling me that I'm still progressing without knowing what the scale says.
      First one is that a belt I bought about 5 weeks ago because all my other belts were too big is also on the last hole so I'll have to buy yet another belt again.  second, I bought new jeans about a month ago and I have a lot more slack in the waist than I did when I purchased them.  I also boarded a plane and had about 8 inches of slack in the belt.  Finally, I hit my goal last week of being able to ride go-carts with my kids.  The last time I tried about 4 years ago, I had to leave because I couldn't fit in the harness.  This was sweet victory and I showed those two how it was done on the race course!!  😈

      I just looked through all my old pants after my pre-op pants started getting to big. Keep in mind that I wear men's pants (usually cargos) because I am so tall 5'10"/5'11" ish. I also find that men's baggies tend to fit me better.
      I started out at a 44 in waist pant and quickly found that I was back down to my 42's. So even when thise got to be too big, I had to start pulling old clothes out of storage. After finding my 38's, I thought that these would not yet fit, but when I tried them on, they fit perfectly. I also found some older pants that now fit better than I remembered. What a relief! It's not like I can pop down to the store like I could do in the US and the styles here in Sweden are all skinnt jeans which I cant stand. I also found some 36's, but I'm not mentally ready to try those on yet. The biggest challenge will be buying women's clothing again.

      slow and steady wins the race.  don't get discouraged and just keep at it. Let your sleeve do its job and try not to stress yourself out.
      hope you are all having a great summer and enjoying what your sleeve has given you.
      just got back from a wedding in OR. and man am i afraid to get on the scale

        Great reminder about how fast you can lose weight. The mind games we play with ourselves are the worst.
