  1. Exactly!!! I have the same pain, sitting in my dinning room chair and my spine hurts from the back of the chair, my tailbone hurts when I sit very long. I have to put a pillow between my knees while in the bed on my side because I dont like that feeling when my knees are touching
  2. Thank you, yes I do struggle with being weak and no energy. It's wield that you feel better and weak at the same time!! I have a lot of dizzy spells
  3. How fast it all has happened!! Putting on a beautiful sundress feels pretty awesome
  4. what a year!!!! Sept 6th will be a year and it has been one of the hardest, longest, fastest, emotional year I have every had. everyday is still a surprise, am I going to be able to eat with out getting nauseated, can I eat this at all. But it has been worth it!! I look in the mirror and I don't know this person I am looking at, she is skinny and can wear a size 6/8 and she is happy and sad. Happy_ because I finally did something about being over weight for 31 years, happy because I can get great looking clothes at Goodwill and consignment shops for almost nothing, happy because my back dont hurt, my feet don't hurt, I can jog and exercise. I can eat a normal amount of food and be full and satisfied. HAPPY when people I haven't seen in years tell me how great I look. Not really disappointed about anything but I do miss some of my old life, enjoying a piece of cake or candy and it not making me sick (but who am I kidding a piece more like the whole bag). I get tired of trying to figure out ways to eat more protein, planning my food for the day, worrying I eating good enough. I miss my sodas, sweet tea, I have a really hard time dealing with all my head hungry and cravings I don't think the cravings every go away. That terrifies me!! As time goes on will I be strong enough to fight these desires. Wish I could have surgery for my thighs and stomach but I doubt that will every happen since insurance doesn't pay. I compare the very first few weeks of WLS to having my babies you forget all the pain and sickness once you start seeing results it just fades away some. Can I keep this up for the rest of my life____ who knows But I believe I have the tools to help me to stay in control ( I pray I do ) Highest weight 262 Day of surgery 246 To date 130. I bounce from 133_ 129, am I through, I hope not but if I am I am very happy with the results
  5. Thank you, I have tried making my own shakes but no luck. I will be a year post op next month, I don't eat Greek yogurt any more or milk but I have moved over to more turkey sausage and eggs, BLT with low calorie protein bread. Lots of peanuts.
  6. What is your protein? I would love to know. I never meet my goal , it's like 40-55 I CANT do shakes , don't care what kind of milk or milk protein I buy it will not stay down.
  7. if anyone remembers my journey, I will be 11 months the 6th of August, I have had terrible nausea from day one. When they released me from the hospital we stayed a night in the motel next to the hospital for 2 nights and the first night I couldn't take the liquid Tylenol they gave me because I would throw up so bad. So we went to the office and they gave me the pain meds in pills and wrote me a prescription for nausea my ins. Only will give me 9 a month and they are 10.00. I still take them, I can't drink any kind of protein shakes, milk, almond milk Fairlie milk, this is why I never meet my protein requirements for the day. For a long time I couldn't eat my yogurt and I really love my yogurt. I eat a lot of hard cheese slices, eggs, lunch meat, protein low calorie bread with peanut butter. I thought for sure , before surgery that I could go by the book and be fine because I have always been that patient that got along perfect after every surgery but not this one.
  8. THANK YOU EVERYONE!!!
  9. At my highest weight i was in a 22, the last pic with my boys is a 8 and now I am in s 6

  11. I have lost 130 lbs. I still shop at Goodwill and thrift shops. I am in a size 6\8 it is so weird that I look at a size 10\12 and think wow you look so big!! When did that happen??? Today I was trying to find a pair of pants and 10's are to big and most 8's are to small the 8's I could wear were to short. It is UNREAL!!!! I have to pinch myself that I am this small!! I really don't want to lose anymore weight but I can't eat anymore either. I have lost all my boobs I use to wear a 46d now I wear a padded sports bra they hold all the loose skin on the side in very well, a size m. My thighs are the worst but I wouldn't change anything other than never being fat to begin with.
  12. good for you!!!! I wish I could have plastic surgery but can't afford. If I could only afford to fix one area it would be my thighs!! My thighs are so ugly I have to wear long shorts, I can live with no breast and winged arms
  13. THANK YOU EVERYONE!!!! YOU ALL ARE THE BEST!¡
  14. Hi everyone, Sorry it's been so long, I am doing so much better!! All my stomach pain and diarrhea has completely stopped now for about 2 weeks. My husband has been in the hospital for a week and is home now, my appetite has been outrageous!! I guess stress, I have tired to make good decisions but I have gave in a couple of times and I am not happy with myself I have worked to hard to go back to eating just to be doing something. I am almost 11 months out I have not gain any weight but I don't won't to start this over eating crap. My husband is 17 years older than me and he is in the early stages of dementia with a long list of other problems. Thank you all for being concern about me.
  15. Fantastic!!!!!
