My daughter and her husband lived for a short time in Roanoke Rapids a few years ago, I think it's in Halifax County.

Wowed small world isn't it. They say we all,have 6% of separation My late husband was a distant cousin of President Millard Fillmore and I me supposedly a distant cousin of Princess Diana thru her great great grandfather Frank Week who was from Muskingum County Ohio. Did you ever hear the joke about people who boast about relatives/anscestors? They're like potatoes, the best part of them. Is underground. Hey I enjoy your postings and your weight loss journey is an inspiration to all us newbies. Have a good evening my friend.

She's on the General Weight loss Forum, just go in there and say Hi, tell her a little of your story, she seems to be leaning toward a sleeve at this time. I of course told her a little of my story, told her I imagined the other North Carolinians would be telling her Hi. I know when the other Buckeyes noticed my location I got some welcomes. Be the cool veteran I know you are, she probably will appreciate it. I know I value your example, hey I hadn't told you but thank you for your law enforcement service. My uncle was a Deputy Sheriff in my county for a period of time.

      Looking on the bright side: both a loss of 1lb/week and a loss of 4lbs/week are LOSSES.  So long as the trendline is going down, I'm happy.

      Thought I'd give an update.  I'm over half way to my goal, which is awesome, and I've lost over 12 inches in my waist!  The weight isn't coming off as quickly as I had hoped, but I am also not exercising and still not getting even close to the amount of water I should be drinking, so slow weight loss is not all that surprising.  Sometimes I'm just "over it" and try to eat huge portions like I used to, but, thankfully, I feel the restriction of my smaller stomach and can't go crazy.  In general, I'm quite good, just trying to live my life.
      I now have a motivation to start exercising, though... I booked a plane ticket to Germany for the end of September, so this is a good chance to get strong, get hydrated, and reach my weight goal.

      Wow looking through my own eyes I just don't see 50 lbs done.  I took the side my side picture from 4 months ago to today's and can only see some change.  I hope I can keep loosing.  I just read that the window or the honeymoon stage of weight lost is in the first 4 months after that it will slow down and you have to work even harder to keep it going.  Trying to keep positive even if it is one pound I lost in 2 weeks.

      So I had my surgery on Jan 7th. At this point I haven't eaten anything for 2 weeks am giving myself my injections. I can barely stomach the protein shakes that I am to have twice a day. I have noticed a small weight loss not as much as I thought I would have since I haven't eaten anything. I haven't started working out at the gym yet. I broke in a horrible case of hives from my incisions but have since been cleared up. I didn't really have any nausea from my surgery. I don't even feel like I had surgery. I am sure once I start eating  I will notice. To ask others. I have sleeve surgery so wondering if anyone else out there had this surgery how did you feel after. When did you start eating foods. I am nervous to start eating. I drink my 64oz plus water a day but that's about it that I am taking in other than the occasional sugar free Popsicle.
