  1. I still can't imagine I will ever be anything near a normal weight. It's hard to trust the surgery. Plus, eating is too easy and it makes me scared the surgery won't work.
  2. I retired a striped T-shirt I used for the gym. It was so baggy I was revealing stuff to other gym goers.
  3. If things keep going the way they are now, I can get by with a training bra in a couple of months.
  4. Hi Tom, thanks for the update. I sure hope this IS the turning point! Keep us posted.
  5. Are you looking primarily at calories or food volume?
  6. Yes, I would like to know too. I sincerely hope things are OK.
  7. @BurgundyBoy Stainless steel? So you can't see your pretty food?
  8. I have to take a similar PPI (pantoprazole) for six months, after taking omeprazole for several years because of GERD. I'm curious whether I'll be able to stop the pantoprazole after six months, i.e., whether my GERD is "cured".
  9. Ooh, Ricola, yes, those are good. Thanks for the info re pouch stretching, @BurgundyBoy. I find eating to be going much too well, at least better than I expected, so I worry, also because I'm not a real fast loser.
  10. Hi Danelle, thank you so much for sharing your story. It's hard to believe you've had to deal with as much as you have. You sound positive and that is amazing. I wish you all the best!
  11. Tomorrow's bento: the small boxes have mini mozzarella and hummus again, but the large one has just...strawberries! The million-dollar question is: how to pack crisp read (Wasa, Ryvita) so it doesn't crumble???
  12. I don't know what they were like before, but I don't like them at all. Weird (after)taste. Blech.
  13. Wow. I can't even get my head around this. Time for a new doctor. Could be you'll have to lose some before surgery (like many of us), but even so: you deserve a helping hand and I hope you get it. Please keep us posted.
