  1. Thanks everyone! This whole process is so exciting!
  2. I'm absolutely horrified to be posting the pic on the left because I apparently took it before I brushed my hair in the morning. It's the only profile pic I have of that time, though. Pic on right was taken today, 7 weeks out of surgery and down 37 pounds. Kind of proud of myself.
  3. I'm 7 weeks out and can still feel that with any liquid that I drink. I don't feel it when I eat anything. Sometimes when I'm really thirsty I mentally prepare myself for the "landing". It only lasts for a minute. I try not to let myself get that thirsty on a regular basis.
  4. Sounds like you have a plan! Enjoy your new life!
  5. Beautiful! Awesome job!
  6. I don't eat sugar anymore, but cake is my weakness. Trust me, 2 hours of driving the porcelain bus was enough to teach me a lesson!
  7. Tomorrow will be 5 weeks post-op and I've lost 30 pounds. The dr said that the next 2-3 months will be big. I've had a few problems, mostly with overestimating what I can eat. I don't "feel" like I've had surgery until I eat too much. Then I KNOW. My son's birthday was on Sunday and I had a few small bites of the icing off the cake. That was a nightmare for a few hours. Overall I'm happy with the 30 pounds.
  8. In regards to dating- Take your time and find the right person. When I was 34 I met a guy and married him 6 months later. After 9 years and two kids, he just walked out. Just like that. Now I'm 45 and starting over. Get to know someone and let them appreciate you for who you are. I have to keep reminding myself this for when I get back into the dating game. Someday I'll find it and so will you. But wait for the person who loves you unconditionally, whom you can trust and be comfortable with. Don't ever settle!
  9. I only did it that one time. I sure don't plan on making it a habit. Thank for the info though!
  10. i took a bite of pizza and spit it out. Oddly enough, it satisfied my craving and I didn't feel like I needed any more. I'd say go for it!
  11. Gastric Bypass
  12. I had mine on 2/22. I'm down 20 pounds.
  13. Thanks for the replies! I was starting to freak out.
  14. I lost about 10 pound on the pre-op diet. I had surgery on 2/22 (Two weeks and two days ago) and have only lost another 10 pounds. I've been stuck for about 3-4 days. Am I normal? I started at 250. I don't know how I'm not losing more. I eat about 600 calories a day and have been back to work for a week Am I being impatient?
  15. I feel the same way! I had surgery on 2/22 and fell like I could eat a whole meal if I let myself. I usually eat around 600 calories a day and I've also been back to work for a week, so it's not like I'm being lazy. It doesn't feel like I've had surgery and I'm usually pretty hungry.
