      next time someone says something like that just say 'i know! it is so sad when these things happen but i am sure with the love and support of my family and friends it wont happen to me' it may be too subtle for him but your other family members will get it

      Don't let it bother you babe - just about everyone has a horror story and it's usually based on urband legends and an ignorance of the WLS.

  12. I Want to EAT!!

    I find that sometimes for me it was the "large" amount I wanted more then any particular thing. Summer is coming and with it more fruits and there anything like that you could "fill the void" with instead? For example, when I wanted to eat a lot I would cut up a cucumber and put fat free dressing or balsamic on it to take care of that need to have something in my mouth...I don't know if that could help but it could at least give you another avenue for the impulse instead of just shoving it away. Best of's a only a tool and the changes for us are SO hard...but we can do it, we've made the hard choice already! Thanks for sharing!

    Stomped in at 216 today...First real loss in a couple of weeks! Scared to anger the scale gods but could this stall be over? Shhhhhh....
  14. Houston we have a problem

    Doesn't this month stall SUCK!!! I'm feeling the same way, like I had this surgery and all I'm ever going to lose is 28 lbs? Well that sucks...but I reassure myself on these boards that this too will end and the losing will begin again! Now if I could just get enough water in...
