    Revision
  1. I could drink normally right after surgery. Not sure why, but I did.
  2. It is hard to hear compliments from friends and family. I struggle with that too. It makes me wonder what they really thought of me 76 pounds ago.
  3. I use the SUGAR FREE Coffee-Mate for my tea.
  4. Sounds normal to me too! Hang in there girlie!
  5. Prior to surgery, I was so addicted to Diet Coke!! I haven't had a drop in 6 months and I don't miss it at all. I'm not a coffee drinker, but I do like a cup of hot decaffeinated tea.
  6. I've always had my skin tags removed by my pcp.
  7. Some people just don't think before they speak.
  8. You look fabulous!!!!
  9. I have always had a SUPER sense of smell, so I haven't noticed any change. This unique feature of mine drives me crazy sometimes because I can smell everyone's bad breath, B.O., dirty hair, etc.
  10. Oh Sweetie....hang in there! It does get better, but it takes time.
  11. It's sometimes hard for me to see a difference in my body even though I know I am wearing smaller clothes. I can notice the difference in these before and current face pics.
  12. OMG ~ I am so glad someone posted about this! Since having surgery my deoderant that I have used for years no longer works for me. By the end of the day, I smell sweaty. I have never had stinky armpits before! Guess it is time to switch deoderants!
  13. I am 3 months post op and am losing hair like crazy! I am taking Biotin and it has helped with regrowth. I am thankful that I have a ton of hair to start with.
  14. I had 18 incisions and just wore my nightgown. I couldn't sleep with underwear on for it hurt my stomach.
  15. Much to my surprise.....I lost 3 pounds! I went to two different Thanksgiving feasts too. I was so dreading the scale this morning. I just stuck with my proteins and splurged a little and had some mashed potatoes!
