Cool names thanks for sharing everyone. How goes recovery or your fasting, whichever level you happen to be on?

I am going back to work on the 31st. I am so ready.

People at work constantly say MIZ (last name) rather than Mrs. (last name) and I turned 60 a few months before surgery. I am not very imaginative or creative.

I was bullied for my size when I was a child and turned to Harry Potter for comfort. One phrase used to describe Hagrid resonated with me - he appeared "simply too big to be allowed". It summed up how my peers made me feel, and how I have continued to feel ever since. I'm now taking a two prong approach to feel better about myself - a sleeve on the 9th to fix the physical, and a psych every fortnight to fix the mental.

Mine is the traditional Arabic kunya (honorific) for a parent: Umm = mother (of) Yasmin (my daughter's name).

Walter Sobchak is a character from The Big Lebowski. One of my all time favorite movies. John Goodman portrays him and should have won an academy award for how well he plays the part. He is a Vietnam veteran with serious PTSD and just an awesome character.

Remember he converted to Judaism and Lebowski pokes fun at him for it. John Further I asked that the Coen Brothers make a movie or series with his" Jesus the Bowler "character. They refused, Big Lebowski is Tomkitten's favorite all-time movie, if I have seen the Lebowski head in Too let Bowl scene once , it is 1000 times. Last time he found it, started watching it I sceamed" Sweet Harriet in Heaven, NOT AGAIN!" Glib Glug there goes the head again!

So I started out with my Gmail address then after a few months, it no longer worked, told Ken, Alex and company You all make Me Frustr8ed! and Frustr8,was born. Kinda like,it once I got used to it.😝🚩😝

It is easily one of my all time favorite movies. Just so many good lines and memorable quotes. The dialogue is what makes it so good, along with the awesome job they did in casting the characters.

I had just got done cutting the grass listening to an old Will Smith song when I found the forum. 😎

F.M.C., please do me a courtesy. Your post jogged my memories and sometimes they are not good. Okay? Please reassure your children it is not their fault,you and Daddy are not together. I am an only child and for years I believed it was My Fault. I was so terrible a child that they never wanted another. So I spent,most of my childhood and part of my youth trying to make it up to them. I wanted to be so perfect that they never would regret having me. I was 15 or 16 before I found out I was a miracle, the baby,doctors thought she would never have. Why wasn't. I told sooner? Brace yourself for this- my Daddy thought it wouldn't matter to ME. So keep all your lines of communication open, the ❤ you keep from breaking might be your child's.Nuff said?

Originally, I had my usual which was my actual first and middle name. I changed it because I was doing everything in secret and didn’t want to be tracked by any nosy people I might know. So it became my initials x my procedure. Nothing fancy

      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.
