  1. You look absolutely amazing. Congratulations and keep up the great work. I have kind of followed your results because your surgery was one day before mine.
  2. I was in my bed the very first night. I had to sleep on my back but it was better than the sofa.
  3. That pup is too cute. Since we're showing off our puppies I have attached a photo of my two new additions. They they are brother and sister and will be 12 weeks old tomorrow. I also have an 11 year old yellow that will always be my favorite. [ATTACH]12535[/ATTACH]
  4. I'm at goal for now, but if I don't get myself turned around I wont be for very long.

  5. i didnt realize you already made goal! That is awesome! Congrats! I am 18 lbs from a normal BMI and about 30 away from goal.

  6. Thanks to all for the words of support and encouragement. I had a good day yesterday, I stayed on target and I'm off to a good start today. I hope it was just a blip on the radar and not a sign of the future.
  7. I have not had a very good week with regards to my eating. I hav'nt really been eating anything that was to bad for me but I have been eating a lot more each day. I have been hungary almost constantly and my stomach has been stronger than my mind and it's really dragging me down. When I had the surgery I knew I would have bridges to cross along the way and it would'nt be all roses. I thought all along that my will to lose weight and to be healthier would be stronger than my will to eat. Now I question my inner fortitude. I have not mentioned this to my family because I feel as though they would be let down by my actions of the last week. I know there is no magic advice out there but thought maybe if I wrote it down and read it aloud I could see the error of my ways and use it as motivation. For those of you that are going to hammer me for doing this and say you're tired of the newbies abusing their pouch then wondering what went wrong let me first say bring it, on I deserve it. But let me also add that I am just a human being with many flaws and right now I'm hurting inside because I fear it's all going to slip away.
  8. Thoughts are with you, good luck today with your surgery and in the future with your recovery.
  9. I have recently become tired of people mentioning my weight loss every time I see someone, but then again when they don't mention it I think "what is wrong with these people, can't they see how much I've changed". It can be a no win situation, kind of a damned if you do damned it you don't type of thing. Oh, and Alan, color me vain. I find myself sneaking a side view peek in the mirror every now and again to see where my massive bulbous stomach used to reside.
  10. I too would like to see the video. I'm envious of you to be able to do that. I wish I had the stones to attempt it even if it were just at an open mike night at a local club. Of course I have a tilted sense of humor that mostly only I find funny so that could pose a problem right there.
  11. Not knowing your family history I hesitate to tell you to cut all ties with them. I do think however you should lay all your cards on the table to them, tell them that you don't have to be 400-500 pounds to be prematurly taken by a massive heart attack brought on by obesity or like my father lose both hands, both legs, most of his eye sight and all kidney function brought on by diabetes. Mind you my Dad was only obese, he was not morbidly obese by any stretch. I do not have an extremely close relationship with my parents but I am grateful every day that they are still with me even if I don't agree with every thing they do or say. When I moved out of my parents house at the age of seventeen I no longer had to listen to what they had to say, I could choose to listen quietly or I could choose to tell them I was not interested in there opinion on a particular subject that is the beauty about being an adult. I implore you to think long and hard about cutting these people out of your life completely. I have seen to many people that were estranged from their parents for years and when they were gone had a very hard time with the fact that they never made it right. I know this is very hard for you but it is always good to keep the lines of communication with your parents open. Good luck to you.
  12. The same thing happens to me. It is a very short time frame, somewhere between 20 and 30 seconds. I wonder if sometimes I may just pass out. I am eating everything I am supposed to but am also concerned by this, I look forward to reading more replies to this question.
  13. Next time your in Vegas do me a favor and say hi to my money for me, I sure do miss it.
  14. You look fantastic, keep up the good work.
  15. Wowwwww!!!!!! You look absolutely amazing. Nice work.
