  1. Hey you...I hope everything is ok ❤️ You've been pretty quiet on here lately, and I just wanted to check in. Miss you!!

  2. The only good thing about the BA chewables is that they are revolting. I won’t snack on them. Got to find the silver lining somewhere.
  3. I found the Spectravite vitamins but not the chewables. I bought a bottle of the regular vitamins because I didn’t want to spend another minute in the cold. Let’s see what the blood work says.
  4. What Are You Wearing Today?

    @Smashlee83 Good news and bad news! I bought two Grace Whatsherface skirts and I love them! The bad news is that they are way too big and they look sort of clownish. Back to Amazon they will go. I’m going to trade them in for a smaller size. I cannot believe I am saying these words. I have to buy a smaller size. Who am I????
  5. What the heck does this mean?

    This happens to me frequently. I don't know why.
  6. I'm busting out....

    Don't forget to have a pillow nearby for belly support! Hope you are resting well. xo
  7. HAPPY NOVEMBER!!!!

    My husband got yelled at a few times in the drive from San Diego to LA. Stay out of the car for a few days.
  8. 12 hrs

    I'm wishing you all the best, @Michael_A. I know I've said it before but you were one of the first people to reach out when I came to TTF community. I will never forget your kindness and hope I can be a good friend to you Surgery is just the beginning of your new journey. I'm looking forward to the day you reach goal and become a swimsuit model. You are in my thoughts and in my heart.
  9. Pre op appointment

    HOORAY! I'm excited for you and wish you the best.
  10. Maintenance Time

    @Trish13 and @tracyringo , The look on my face is probably from sucking in my stomach super hard. LOL Thanks for the kind words. xo
  11. Breaking traditions

    I agree with the turkey leg suggestion. When you are tempted by beer, cheesecake or other foods, go find a mirror. Think about how hot you look after surgery and your desires will go away.
  12. 5 lbs to lose for surgery approval

    @AliPat Welcome aboard. I am impressed that you are going forward with WLS, considering that MS is a challenge in itself. My best friend has MS, so I've seen first hand the complexities оf the disease. If you are taking any steroids or infusions, it's no wonder that your weight has been a challenge. Your determination to get healthy is admirable. Happy to meet you.
  13. Whats next after the Sugery Date is scheduled?

    Wow @Gretta Dr. Callery has very high standards. An abundance of caution is worth its weight in gold. @Missmyeshia17 Welcome aboard. Gretta is quite helpful and friendly to boot. You should look at her as a role model. Best of luck to you!
  14. Hello all!

    Welcome, @sarahjayne29. I had RNY in April and am pleased with the impact WLS has made on my health. I'm happy to answer any questions about my RNY experiences. Hooray for getting healthier!
  15. Newbie saying hello and thank you
