  1. Getting hit on all the time

    It is quite possible to be less about the weight loss than the confidence!
  2. Below 200

    Congrats to both of you
  3. Very anxious before surgery. Any words?

    I have never had a problem with anesthesia. In fact, the first time I had it (1984( I like it so well, I wasn't ready to wake up.. The kept telling me to breathe in the oxygen from the mask, to wake up. I would take my tounge and push the mask away to take in the outside air and go back to sleep. I have had it probably 8 to ten times total. It is nothing to worry about.
  4. Lost job because boss is jealous?

    Good for you! Congrats!
  5. First day back to work

    I was lucky. I too have an office job. I had my surgery on Tuesday and was back at work the following Monday. I did one half day and then went full days.
  6. October 15th is the day!

    You have to be soooooo excited. Every thin will go fine. See you on the other side!
  7. Do you need more time alone now?

    Alone time is not only desired, but a necessity. I suffer from MDD (Major Depressive Disorder) I cherish my alone time. I have adjusted my hours at work from 6:30am to 3:00pm just so I can get two hours alone before my wife gets home. I am so bad, I have tried sucide three times over the past19 months.
  8. First day back to work

    Take it slow with adding foods to your diet. After all, you have a brand new stomach. What kind of work do you do and how is it being back?
  9. Getting hit on all the time

    Any plans for Saturday night
  10. Hair Loss and Protein Intake

    The best thing I found to get the protien was "Calorie Countdown" my Hood. It is a milk type drink, you can get in Whit and Chocolate. I liked the Chocolate. It is fairly high in protien and low in carbs. It helped me from the start. I am 4 and a half years out and still drink it from time to time, just because I like it. You can hardly tell a difference between it and the real thing.
  11. I am 4 and half years out. The only problem I had/have is cake icing. I love that stuff, but can't have it any more. Arrrrrrg
  12. I hit goal this morning!

    Way COOL!
  13. Gastric Bypass WORKED for me

    Good for you. You look great!
  14. What if.....setting in pretty badly right now :(

    Listen to cinwa. She knows what she is talking about!
  15. I am going to lose my mind
