    my doctor said that having the band takes the most willpower and is the most difficult of the 3 long term. I had the sleeve, and I'm very satisfied with it. My sugar cravings have dissipated

  8. Noelle added a post in a topic Letting People Know?   

    there's just some people I refused to tell, e.g. my aunt who is the most judgmental, horrible human on this earth. Actually, I only told my fiance, my brothers, my mother, and my grandma. All of whom were very supportive and loving along the way. My monster of an aunt eventually found out, but acts like she doesn't know. She really has no room to judge though. She's weighing in at over 400lbs and has no intention of doing anything about it any time soon.

    Alright guys, I have severe concern for my rear. I have WAY too much of it... I'm wondering if i'll be proportioned the way I am now, & if so.. I'm in trouble For my size, my waist is itty bitty in comparison to the rest of my body, my boobs and my butt just look ridiculous on what's supposed to be a small frame >.< Anyone else have this issue?

    So, yesterday was my grandma's 61st birthday and my family decided to take her out to dinner. I was nervous at first, since I haven't been out to eat since my surgery.. but it was actually an extremely enjoyable experience!! The servers are very accommodating, I asked them for a side order of shrimp and he asked me how many ounces I wanted! It was great I just thought, I'd share.

    yes a side effect of the depo shot is weight gain, I was on it for a year, then switched to pills. It will only make you gain 15 lbs, at most

    Goodbye Mushies!
    Hello Solids! I'm so happy I really do believe that was the most difficult stage of this journey, at least for me. I won't be eating refried beans or mashed potatoes for a LONG time. Tonight I'm making Chicken Cacciatore with spaghetti squash, Yum!
