  1. Great news, you'll be on the losers bench soon.
  2. Sorry for the ankle, really stinks but glad its on the mend, and congrats on still losing, great job.
  3. Best of luck, let us know how everything goes.
  4. woot woot, doing the happy dance.
  5. Welcome and congrats on your surgery.
  6. Poorly chewed food does sit heavier in the stomach, but that doesn't mean its a slider. Well chewed steak doesn't move through the stomach any more quickly than poorly chewed steak. A slider is something soft like yogurt that kind of pours/moves quickly through the stomach; it isn't dense so more can fit in.
  7. Sorry to hear about your husbands delay. But success in WLS is about preparation, if therapy helps him prepare then he will be all that more successful.
  8. Fantastic, congrats!
  9. Welcome Tish, very excited for you. Can't wait to welcome you to the losers bench.
  10. No one is perfect, we all make mistakes. What's important is what you learn from the mistakes and what you do going forward. As Tom said, you won't be able to eat like that after surgery and expect to lose weight. While you won't be able to eat as much you need to eat the right things are the weight won't come off. I'mm not trying to scare you, but that is the reality. The surgery is a tool, its up to us to use it properly. Try developing coping techniques for those times when the cravings are too much. Again, we've all been there and at 3 years out I still have urges to eat things I shouldn't, yesterday was a really bad day.
  11. Congrats, can't wait to welcome you to the losers bench. You've done great so far, keep it up.
  12. I get cold much more easily since losing weight. I don't know why and have many theories over the years, what I do know is that this is now part of my new normal and I'm fine with it. Better thin and cold and warm and fat.
  13. I'm sorry for your loss and inspired by your strength.
  14. I still look in the mirror and am amazed by the change but still see the "fat man".
  15. You're doing great, congrats on everything. Well done!
