      My surgeon didn't recommend it until my 6 week appt. but I wanted to finish my chewables first. I guess I will eventually get used to it.

      I just had my 6 week and it seems like yesterday I had my surgery, but also seems like a lifetime ago. I guess in a way it was another lifetime.

      Lol! I don't blame you, I don't know what I would do without my chicken!

  6. I can still take good size gulps of water just not one big drink after another like others said. It's just difficult immediatly after surgery but a few weeks later I was fine. I miss not be able to drink with my meals to wash down my food more than anything!

  9. Sorry i didnt reply sooner....Yea hubby has been off for a while, really busy with work....but he is down 100lbs and a size 46 from a 56. He looks fantastic....he is kicking my @*#! How r u doing/feelig?

  10. I have some size 2(venzia) Lane Bryant jeans, I think the size 2's are 16's cause I wore them when I was in size16. I'm in 12's now and they have been sitting in my closet for weeks and I hated to take them to goodwill cause I paid good money for them! If you want them they are yours! Let me know what you think!Oh yeah, they are petite length cause I'm short, I'm 5ft. 2in. and they are the perfect length, I see that your an inch shorter so they should be perfect!
  11. It seems like nothing EVER fits, I swear that I just bought size 14's & now their too BIG! Don't get me wrong, I love loosing weight and wouldn't change this for the world but wish I could wear things longer!

      when u buy, buy 2-3 of the same thing in smaller sizes. i did that for my new clothes and sometimes it worked on the used stuff too.

      That's a good idea, if it's a good price I just might have to do that! ;)
