  1. I saw your post of Digikittys site and then I now see my post fro Feb. How are you? It is an amazing journey isnt it? Have you had any problems? I have not outside of the occasional tummy ache! I LOVE my new me and I am so thrilled!!! Hope you are doing great!!

  2. I will be praying for you as you begin this awesome journey! I am super excited for you! Dr. Sharma has changed my life! I'm know 12lbs from my goal! So I'm still trucking!!

  3. hi, wanted to tell ya Im scheduled with Dr Sharma on Sept 20th:)

  4. Hey! I got your email. I loved Dr. Sharma. He is an excellent surgeon. I have lost over 100lbs and I'm 30 lbs away from my goal. Good luck on your journey. Good to hear from you.

  5. I am no longer obese!! Holy Cow....

    That is awesome! Your hard work has paid off! Congrats!!
  6. Sweet Onderland!

    Awesome! Awesome! Awesome!!! I hope to follow in your footsteps in a few more days!!! Congrats! And keep on losing big!
  7. Hey! I'm sorry it has taken me so long to respond. I just saw your message! I am doing very well. I've lost over 65 lbs. And I am working out 5 days a week. I even have started running. Granted it is just alittle, but I 've started! My hubby is an avid runner so he is encouraging me! Concerning food: I still have a hard time with beef and chic. They just don't feel comfortable on my stomach. And since I have to chew it so much I really hate the way it tastes before I swallow. Veggies and fruit have such wonderful flavors even until you swallow! How are you doing?

  8. Question for the women here..:)

    Well, I have to say that I thought that I would just have a lift after I lose all the weight, but I'm half way there and I've gone from a DD to B. I've lost almost 8 in. in my bust soooo. . . there will probably be nothing left if I have a lift! I never thought of myself as a implant girl unless I had a breast removed or some like that. But I think I might have to consider it. I, personally, care more about my tummy than my breasts. I can put those suckers in a push up bra at any size and they will look half decent. But no matter what I do to that sagging tummy -no matter if I wear the BEST Spanx out there- it will be saggy and there will be a slight lump! Although ALL these issues are issues that I would love to have compared to being unhealthy and obese! So even if I can't fix- I'm happy! I believe this is how most of us feel. These are good problems to have! HURRAY for saggy, baggy breasts- it means we are getting closer or have achieved our goal!!
  9. I was just looking at the october surgery date members and saw you.. Just stopped to say Hi. How are you doing? :)

  10. Breathing Tube and Catheter

    Everything was taken out before I woke up too. I personally haven't heard of that happening to anyone who had a successful surgery. I do know of people that had complications and had to have it but I don't think they were awake. The catheter is no big deal. I doesn't hurt at all. It is a little awkward but as soon as I walked around for awhile, they took it out. You just take a deep breath and it is over. No pain-just a little uncomfortable. But it is over in 3 seconds at the most. You will be fine! Have a great journey!
  11. 1 year (and 268 lbs lost) later- My sis and I

    Ya'll look awesome!!! This is an inspiration! Thanks for posting! I needed the encouragement!
  12. Food

    I'm there right now! I have to force myself to eat. And sometimes it agrees with me and sometimes it doesn't. I would love to just take a pill that provided all my vitamins, minerals, and nourishment for the day, instead of eating. I do think this will change though. I find myself at the end of the day trying to find ways to increase my protein intake before the day ends because I don't get enough yet. I'm between 50-60g a day and I work hard for those 50-60. Anyway, I'm right there with you on the eating thing. I hope this improves for both of us soon!

    AWESOME! You look great!
  14. Constipation?

    I've tried many things like Miralax, Colace and Milk of Mag. Miralax and Colace didn't work , and Milk of Mag. did, but it was very painful! I hated it! I was in the bathroom all night with cramps and such! I did find a different product that I really like though. Its called Organic Smooth Move by Traditional Medicinals. It is an herbal stimulant laxative tea and it is all natural. It tastes good too! My doctor recommended it. I've seen it at Super Target and Publix (in the tea section).
  15. Reached the 100lb loss!

    Wonderful! So excited for you! Hasn't your life changed so much from 100 lbs ago?!
