  2. "Whatever you are, be a good one."

    Hi all. I CANNOT believe I abandoned this site for over one year. I LOVED this site :-) Man, you all got me through some rough nights. And you made me laugh. And all the drama gave me lots of entertainment...lol. So, why am I back? Because I'm thinking about my two year surgi-versary on 10/20. It's almost two weeks away. I weigh 162, got down to 154 at one point, but back up. I'm not gonna lie...it comes easy to me. I don't feel like I *try* to maintain or lose, there's some up and down, but I am loving what this surgery has done for me. I signed up for a 6 week bootcamp, see if I can't break that 150 barrier....145 was always my ultimate goal. I don't know if my body has it in me...but its nicce to still have a goal. So um yeah. I'm a happy girl. I'm happy for all of you just starting this journey...it can be the most amazing gift you've ever given yourself...and you deserve it!!! I'm gonna post some photos ;-)
  3. "Whatever you are, be a good one."

    Looks like my post this month will be much like last month - not a lot going on over here ;-) Just living life. Down only 2 pounds, haven't been posting much, happy with all aspects of life. Wanting to work out more. The boyfriend is fabulous. The holidays and my one year surgi-versary approach rapidly. I'm amazed how fast this year has flown by. I'm thinking some photos are in order soon. I guess I could just do my one year photos in a month. We shall see... Take care all.... P.J.
  4. "Whatever you are, be a good one."

    Hi all, I've been absent and I apologize, especially to all those newbies out there posting and waiting eagerly for someone, anyone to reply! LOL. I remember being there... Just wanted to write on my 10 month surgi-versary. I've made it down to 162, so 4 pounds last month...its a step back in the right direction. I'm workin at it every day. But I feel good and healthy and pretty and happy....everything else that happens (no matter how long it takes) is just icing on the cake. I hope you are all well.... If nothing else...HAPPY FRIDAY~~
  5. The best summer of my life!!!

    We had surgery around the same time and I just wanted to say you look amazing and soo happy. I too am having the best summer ever.... Yay for us!
  6. "Whatever you are, be a good one."

    Hi all - I'm still doing my best, struggling every once in awhile. The carbs are almost gone....I just wish I had never tried another nacho cheese dorito. UGH. I despise them. I'm in a new house with a new roomie so I have new food challenges. Granted, I should have the strength to resist, but all this time I've been livin solo so any food in the house was food I brought home. Now I've got to contend with her food triggers/habits. But I'm trying. And Phoenix, I'm doing much much better with the alcohol. It is making a difference, I feel it. Anyway, had a fight night party last weekend. As you all know, I take Muay Thai kickboxing and I LOVE it. My best friend and I took this picture and all of my friends say they can't believe I look almost as skinny as her....truthfully, I can't believe it either!!!!!! She's been thin our whole lives, I've known her since the 4th grade. So the fact that she is wanting to borrow my tops and dresses is just surreal. I hope you all are well....I feel like there is sooo much to catch up on...
  7. Yes I've only got the one pug - Hudson. I got him a friend about 6 months after I got him - he's a terrier mix named Stu. I've always been tempted to get a lil Black pug. But I think 3 dogs for a single 30 year old is a lil ridiculous!!!

  8. Aweee look at your little puggy, too!! Is that your only one? We've been wanting to get get a second to accompany Paisley!

  9. 1 month post VSG

    hey hot stuff...can't wait for bathing suit pics :-)
  10. "Whatever you are, be a good one."

    Just looking at those lake pictures again and noticed how I completely FILLED up and was POURING out of the side of the plastic houseboat chair last summer :-( This summer, as you can see, there is EXTRA room all around me in that chair! YEEHAW! Thx Phoenix, I need someone to keep an eye on me and I will try to do a better job of reporting back. My skin ain't perfect, but I'll take it and I am happy so far.... FRRRRRRRRRREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE :-) (Doing good today - protein shake for breakfast, salad with turkey and about five croutons at lunch, 1 liter of agua already)
  11. Your puglet is TOOOO cute :-)

  12. Hey Laurie - thanks for the comment! :-) I appreciate your support soooo much. Hope you are doing well - you are in such an important and exciting time!

  13. "Whatever you are, be a good one."

    Found a better pic where you can actually see two of my lap scars...
  14. "Whatever you are, be a good one."

    Thanks all of you and Phoenix - I know you are RIGHT. I'm feeling more motivated tonight. Gonna basically do what phoenix suggested, because I know deep down she is on the money. Wanted to find some more motivation, so I finally found that pic from last summer at the lake. BLAH. That was last August I believe, near my highest weight. It was scorching and I don't think I even got in the water because I was so depressed. My last trip I spent the ENTIRE time in the water loving life. We are going again for Labor Day and I'm going to try to refocus, lose a little, exercise, and be proud of my efforts. Thanks again you guys, can't tell you how much this site means to me. PS> This might be my least picture EVER ON THE PLANET EVER. So, here I am, coming to terms with my old fat self, puttin her out there, its all part of the process. Maybe I'm struggling right now because I haven't really let go of all the hurt I was feelin back then...???? PPS> I just made a comparison shot with a similar-ish shot from my July houseboat trip. Yes I'm covering my lap with a towel, but trust me, I was FREE :-)

    Thx so much for writing...it means a lot to have cheerleaders out there. I waw thinking about the pouch test...maybe its time :-) I'll keep you posted.
