  1. None of us are you said, " one day at a time" you've done it before, and you can do it again!!!
  2. Mine is 64gms, but does it stay at that amount indefinitely?
  3. I'm 63 this month. I'm three years out. I would still like to lose 20 pounds. How much protein a day should I be eating. My sister is driving me nuts that 64 gm a day is too much and when I looked it up online, it actually said about 46 gm. Is it different because I've been sleeved?
  4. Not everything is from WLS. My hair had started thinning before surgery, then got so much worse. I did notice it growing back in some, but as it had started prior, it wasn't the same. I have now cut my below my butt hair, very short and just throw on a wig......
  5. I get it so badly it's impossible to sleep or's horrid...I'm 3 years out
  6. Thank you
  7. I'm having some odd swelling under my knee and at my ankles....I thought I would try a diuretic. Is that advisable since we have make sure we're hydrated?
  8. 3 years out and have held steady....but still have twenty pounds to go.It's like my body is just stuck here. I have to starve myself to lose and my drop a pound or two, but it goes right back to where it was. No problem really maintaining, but it seems losing now is impossible....and I have to really struggle to not "snack" these days....i try to take it days by day
  9. Thanks guys.
  10. I had my surgery three years ago. I've done well. Stalled with twenty pounds to go, but what is scaring me, is that I'm wanting to eat again....head hunger. I'm really struggling cause I am NOT GOING to gain any wright, but it's so hard. Just venting I guess. Having a really hard time
  11. No OVC not prescribed....if I miss even a day, I get heartburn so badly hot water comes up...just horrible
  13. Thanks you....feeling better today.....and back on tract. I SO appreciate the support.
  14. I have done so well with my emotions since my surgery, been through a lot, another mini stroke, lost my brother unexpectedly, a lot..........but for some reason, I broke today...I have eaten all day and bad stuff. Issues with two of my kids, my oldest had an emergency appendectomy and I couldn't get home, my knees are hurting so bad today, ended up in ER yesterday with a surface blood clot.....had one knee totally replaced in November and the other last month and it takes a year for full recovery......just lost it today........I feel guilty and like a loser....just feel horrible!!!!!!!
  15. Thank you....I'm joining the gym as soon as my legs heal.....see if I can get strong and healthy
