  1. Amazing Lois!! Just amazing. congrats doesn't seem like enough.
  2. You are gorgeous. Congrats!
  3. I really don't know if this is related, and I am only 4 years out, but I had a lot of serious stomach and digestive issues post op. Always had a problem with constipation but it became severe and chronic post RNY. Terrible bowel stretching, twisting, and lots of pain. After a lot of separate issues and surgeries, my surgeon discovered that my colon was more than 2x longer than it should be, causing low motility, Severe cobstipation, bloating and pain. I finally had surgery about 4 weeks ago to remove a large part of my colon. It was a very hard recovery but has seriously changed my life. Almost regular (and normal) bowel movements for the first time in as long as I can remember, significantly less bloating (still a bit swollen I think) and NO pain. anyway, just my experience. But it wasn't discovered with all the tests and specialists over the years. My surgeon only found it during an unrelated emergency surgery a year ago. Worth looking into.
  4. Obviously you have to do what is best for your specific situation and health. Your surgeon wants to give you the best chance possible at hitting goal. Pregnancy is much easier and healthier at a good weight. However, if you look on the pregnancy board here, you will see a number of people who had successful pregnancies much earlier than 24 months. As to age, I can only speak to my experience, but I just had my third (and last ) 10 months ago a week before I turned 39. No pregnancy-related complications, and a very happy and healthy baby. I got pregnant about 3 years out from bypass. I had my first two younger and much heavier.
  5. Yay, what a great update! So excited for you. Keep us updated.

  9. Fantastic!!! So excited for you.
  10. I don't have any wise words or statistics to share. But I absolutely had the same fear going into surgery with two little kids (3 and 5 at the time). It's scary. It's surgery. But I knew I had to do it. For me and for them. Best decision I ever made for myself.
  11. Holy gorgeous!
  12. Morning. Extra-small pink micro-suede BCBG Max Azria dress, brown tights and brown leather and suede boots.
  13. I find all of this so interesting! We just got another new stove with a griddle and when I read the manual it said to season the griddle before initial use and then often after using so it becomes non-stick. I'm sure it wouldn't surprise anyone to know that I had never heard that term before! I followed the instructions and done it a few tiles now but still not non-stick. I guess it just builds up over time?
  14. Welcome back!!
  15. Hugs, Wendy! You know where to find me (us) when you are ready! Good luck with everything! Xoxo
