Can we please have an icon for "Congratulations!"? When someone reaches a big milestone or goal, a "like" is just inadequate, imo. Thanks!

And similar,but,not exactly and special Surgiversity one. So often people drop off the screen, I would like to reward the ones who stay and become mentors. Sure I can read and study until I am blue in the face, but someone who has done it, lived it, made it to goal now That,is a treasure. I. get excited, I get encouraged when I read Suzie Caluxie who started at the same,weight,as I made her goal. And call me silly, but I like seeing what she looks then! I can tell people i want to weigh175, probably,to,the point every one,says yeah Frustr8,we all know you want to be 175, but,show me a picture of someone 5ft8in and that weight and i,promise I'll stop my,yammering for 15 minutes to an hour. Just give,my something to hang my "Hope Hat" on.

Sure! It would be great if you could start a new topic and include your list of bugs and feature requests. I will do my best to get our developers working on them.

I totally missed that topic, my apologies!

The only request I see though is the ability to update your entire profile via the app. Are there any others?

Every time I go to update my profile pic off the app (IOS) it does this glitch thing where it blinks that it is saving for about 2 minutes and force closes the app. This is been happening for months, so none of the updates have fixed it.

I guess the goal is to have both apps mirror the same abilities as the website. Right now all 3 are different

I agree 100%. We use 3 different teams of developers: web, iOS, and Android. It's going to take a few more months but I think you'll be pleasantly surprised by future updates.

      Saw the surgeon yesterday. He is very pleased with my loss thus far. I am averaging about 10 lbs a month. Turns out my nutritionist and my surgeon have vastly differing ideas on how many calories I should be eating right now. Nut put me on 1K a day. Surgeon said nope, they are wrong, go to 800/day. Too bad I have been following what the Nut advised. I could have lost more weight already. Oh well, I will do it now! I am also going to add another day of working out to help break this stall I have been in since 8/28. I am very happy as this week I was able to get into a size XL shirt and I am wavering on pants sizes, but I am wearing a lot of size 18 that are too big or are getting too big. The inches are still dropping off nicely. I saw my parents for the first time after a long time this past weekend (they live out of state) and my Dad who never says anything gave me some super nice compliments. My sister also did...her words as we were trekking through the airport on a long upward ramp were along the lines of "Before the mind was willing but the body wasn't. Now your mind and body are in sync. Before we would have had to have stopped at least once and now you aren't even phased by this." What a great thing to have someone recognize.

        I was there yesterday too! My appointment was at 1:30pm. And its crazy that they told you 800 calories per day, when they told me 1k yesterday, but I've got my own agenda lol.

      Had my final pre-op appointment today. Next Wednesday my liquid diet starts. It's getting real.

      Has anyone reading this lied about your weight just to get the surgery done?

        The surgeons office will weigh you pre authorization for surgery. How do you lie?

      2. MargoCL

        How can you lie, like @skinnylife stated they weigh you at the surgeon's office and throughout each of your pre-op steps. There is no lying in this, everything is documented, double checked, etc.

      3. Coachthex32

        I had to gain 20 lbs. Makes no sense. High Blood Pressure, almost diabetic, and sleep issues (stop breathing in the night).

      4. Leia

        I dont think I could have if I wanted to, they'd been weighing me regularly for 6+ months before the surgery, and then again the day of.

       I don't know what to do for my birthday being that I just had weight loss surgery I know that I have a lot to be grateful for

        What would you normally do?

        Instead of planning a meal, what about an activity that you enjoy.

        If the weather is nice, plan a picnic and explain that you are not eating and will not be providing a cake instead if you wanted you could have birdseed bags that people could use to feed the birds or the ducks in a pond at the park where the picnic would be held. Everyone could bring their own lunch if they wanted to attend and you would only have to make little birdseed bags.

        If nature walks are more your style, do something along those lines and just let everyone know that for your birthday you are planning an activity and not a party. There will be no cake and ice cream if that is what they are looking for, they can just stay home.

        You could ask your friends to join you in a day of caring and you could all volunteer together somewhere either serving at a soup kitchen, helping at a shelter or a children's center or even a senior center.

      I managed to finally break my old school manual Italian espresso maker... Is this a sign?

      2. GreenTealael

        Of what indeed. I thought at first I should give up coffee, nonsense.h Then I thought I should go out for coffee with friends more. Then I thought I should go to Italy for coffee with friends and get a new maker...
