  1. 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!
  2. I only did it that one time. I sure don't plan on making it a habit. Thank for the info though!
  3. 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!

  5. I had mine on 2/22. I'm down 20 pounds.
  6. Thanks for the replies! I was starting to freak out.
  7. 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?
  8. 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.
  9. No, I've never even heard of that. I'll have to research it.. it sounds like magic!
  10. I feel the same way! I'm exactly 1 week post-op and I feel like I'm always hungry. I usually do about 600 calories a day. I've lost 15 pounds since starting with the pre-op diet on 2/12. I would swear that what I'm feeling isn't head hunger but now I'm starting to wonder if it is.
  11. Wow! You guys are right! I'm one week out now. I still feel hungry a lot but the regret is starting to disappear. I've lost 15 pounds since I started pre-op (2/12). I sometimes feel sluggish, but food has a different meaning to me now. I remember reading that some people hardly ever feel hungry after surgery. I was really hoping that would be the case for me, but I'm learning to accept that it's not. I've been given this second chance and I'm going to make the most of it. StKaren, I'm sorry about what you are going through. I've dealt with depression for most of my life and I know how much of a struggle it is. Please contact me if you need someone to talk to!
  12. Wow!! Good job!
  13. I'm 2 days out and all I want to do is eat. I feel like I'm starving. I know I CAN'T eat and it's not head hunger. I'm beginning to think I made a mistake.
  14. Thanks! After reading the advice about the Ensure, I decided to just force down the Bariatric Advantage powder shakes. Today I realized that I should have saved my whining for when I had to drink the magnesium citrate. Yuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuckkkkk!!!! I did get it all down though. Surgery tomorrow!
  15. Am I really supposed to drink this stuff? It tastes like poison.
