  1. Thank you!!
  2. First an old pic at a friends 80s party, a before and after THEN my wedding pics! Yay! I love the new me!
  3. My current relationship status has definitely changed. My boyfriend at the time of my surgery, who was my main support system, broke up with me because "I changed". Whatever that meant. If he meant for the better, for my health, my self esteem, than whatever oh well. He did prefer big women anyways and we were never really going anywhere. I just didn't realize when we first discussed this as an option for me and he said "as long as you don't change" that it meant...I won't love you when you get smaller. LOL! It's alright. I ended up being happier without him anyways. AND...I am happy to report being in a new relationship and am now engaged!! Woot Woot!
  4. Hey all...been awhile since I have posted in here so I thought it's high time I share again
  5. Almost a year post op Gastric Bypass & I had gall bladder removed last Tuesday. Right after surgery, I was itching all over my body which they gave me benadryl for & my skin was yellow, is this normal? I really feel like I was rushed out of the hospital but should have stayed at least over night. I didn't even have time to wake up all the way from the anestesia (sp?) let alone for anyone to know whether I was doing well. In the past week. I have been in extreme pain. I have 6 incisions scattered throughout my belly so it was real hard for me to get in any kind of comfortable position. I've also experienced nausea and been real weak and managed to have a low grade temp at least once a day, my body feeling extra hot & having to freeze everyone else in the house out keeping the a/c on a low temp. Struggling with food tasting right or getting a half way decent amount in. And in general, just hadn't been feeling well. Everyone keeps telling me one day at a time, but I just feel like I should be doing much better than this by now! I see the Dr for follow up today, but I just wanted to get your opinions. For those who have already done this, Was your experience anything like this? What was your recovery time and what kind of things should I look for or be expecting as far as changes in my body now?
  6. After having WLS in Aug of 2011, I lost my breasts. I don't mind them being smaller, my pre op size was 44DD and I had tons of back pain. I am now down to what might be a 36C? And thats pushing it. I really don't have breasts anymore, they are saggy and flat! Can't afford to get a lift bekuz I am on Medicaid. This is depressing!! Any suggestions from those who have been through this or experiencing the same thing? Is there a natural way to enhance them that actually works? SAVE ME!
  7. Recovering from Gall bladder removal last Tuesday. See the Dr for follow up today.

      Went for a gallbladder HIDA scan this morning as it seems my gallbladder may have gone kaput. How was your removal?

  8. Had gall bladder attack over the weekend! I have Gallstone 1.8 cm in size. I dont know how big that is, but I'm seeing the Dr today to discuss removal!

  9. I know! It gets kinda frustrating. Just keep near those you KNOW are your true supporters. I am starting to realize those who maybe once were that maybe are not so much anymore and trying to spend more time around those who i know still truly are supportive and happy for me.
  10. Happy Easter! HE is risen!

      He is risen indeed!

  11. Glad to know that Im not the only one...not glad that we all have to deal with this. I dont feel I have to say something to please them, but they do leave me with a bit of a complex sometimes. BUT I think about the "you look goods" and realize I hear that much more and I like the new 142 lb me! They'd never understand. I just try to avoid the conversation now, like smile and say hi passing in the hall or when walking past them in the break while they are eating enough for 3 and judging me, smile and say hi and sit on the other end of the room and move on.
