  1. Yes for the most. I seem to hold food down better but still get sick occasionally. The scale isn't moving in either direction, thats what matters to me.
  2. She is growing up way too fast for me. I just want to enjoy every moment with her. Its amazing how much more patient I am now that I am older. I couldnt imagine life without her. Hey if I had one more we could be the brady bunch or the dysfunctional bunch but hey we all love each other thats what counts.
  3. Hey nice to see this thread and some "old timers". I am 4yrs out this month and holding strong. I started this journey wearing a size 26 and now a 1. I was terrified of the scale and I guess it still has some control over me. Its all a numbers game. I have had a baby along the journey and divorced. Not a bad thing because we have become better friends and parents working together because of it. We don't hate each other in fact I can say I love him very much. I think very highly of him and he is a wonderful father, one of the best. I think I met my soulmate along the way. Funny how things work out. A guy I went to school with and our parents were friends entered my life. He was going through a divorce the same time as me. Our fathers used to be best friends, such a small world. I am madly, deeply, in love with this man.
  4. Just wanted to drop a line and say congrats!!! So very happy for you.
  5. Hi all - I just thought I would login and see who is around and noticed my surgery date. I was 4 yrs. out on the 7th. I didn't even realize it. I had so many regrets over the years but I am finally feeling better and life is great! I am still wearing a size 1. I went from a size 26 to a 1!!! I just miss my boobies but hey I will take what I have.
  6. My new tat, best pic I have right now
  7. I haven't been on here in ages but was searching for a recipe and thought I would do a quick update and pics. Things are going well with me and I am finally feeling pretty healthy. It has been months since I have been sick. I still see my hematologist every 3 months, do twice a month b-12 injections, and iron infusions although my last round I had a reaction so that is on hold for a bit. Jordan is 16 months and talking up a storm. I have not taken a good pic of her in a while. She runs towards me every time I take out the camera. Audrey is 10 and turning into a young lady way to fast for me. The boys are with their dad for the summer. My mom is moving back to the same town as me so I am very excited to have her close by. She is considering GBS and asked if I recommended it. I almost lost it after her seeing me so sick and in and out of the hospital. So anyway here are some pics of me now: 5'8" 130lbs My Photos
  8. You look amazing! Congrats on your long term success
  9. Does anyone sleep all night with it. I take it and yes I fall asleep but only for a few hours. I wake up and can't go back to sleep. I also have amnesia every morning.
  10. Well I was in bed and thought there for the night but I can not make rational decisions when on it. So I am in a hotel room hungry and what seemed innocent enough by leaving to get food could have been big trouble for me. I was not alone though I did ask my roomy to go with me.
  11. Yeah I always get hungry with it but never want to eat once I have the food in front of me and I always complain that everything taste bad. If I notice the scale moving I will stop taking them. The worst is the random texting. Thank goodness everyone in my phonebook knows I am a nut.
  12. I remember reading this. I was talking about Mork and Mindy. Anyone remember that show? I was hallucinating and telling my sitter that we were going to be abducted and I could only take one kid with me and that the spouses had to stay at home oh and I expected steak and lobster on the table when I got back.
  13. Just got back from a week in New York. We had fun, did a little shopping but mostly training. I brought my brothers ex gf who is my babysitter. Everyone asked if I was her mother or sister. Ok she is 19 I guess I could be her mom. So the ambein, does anyone else have crazy stories about taking this. I will take it and get totally off balance like I am drunk. I also get head hunger, I say head hunger because I will go and get food but never eat it. We were in NY in our room, pjs on when I decided that I was starving. Thank you ambein. I convinced Kortni to go down town a few blocks with me to get something to eat. Yes we marched through the street in our pjs. We hit up a food cart where I could hear 3 guys laughing behind us and talking about us. I spun around on my heels and asked if they had a problem with my pjs and they burst out laughing. They asked where we were from and started up a short conversation. They ended up buying us our food, maybe they thought I was homeless haha. Last night I sent out random text messages while on it and when I read them this morning my sides were hurting from laughing so much. Random pics from NY.
  14. I am 3 yrs. out and still wake up with night sweats that make me have to change clothes and bedding. I am 35 and think it is hormonal. I didn't have any episodes during my pregnancy and now they are back.
  15. Good luck with it you do good work
