    all of us recover differently. I had a lot of energy at first but felt that when I began to feel better, and exercise more, etc.... that i was very tired easily. It's all in our recovery....listen to your body and rest...and of course, talk to your doctor's office to work through it! the best to you and congrats!!!
  6. New From Southern California - Questions!

    First of all - congrats to you!!! It's a very difficult decision to make and once made it goes smoothly. Just think postive, take each day and each step along the way. I was (and still am) obsessed but in a good way. The improvement to my health is the ultimate win-win for the wls.... whatever you chose, just know it's positvely good for YOU!!! PS-I had HBP and also sleep apnea...and am proud to say they are both gone now..... Each person progresses differently and each person has their own health related issues/reasons for the's always good to talk it through with your doc and work w/ your doc and nutritionist along the way (at least that helped me a lot). And, ppl here aer great with a lot of support and advice as well....especially bec folks here have or will be going through the same things as you....we're in it together and support each other!!! Take care...... HUGZ!

  11. Not Losing Weight?

    I had two stalls and I'm approaching 5 months post op.... It happens to a lot of people. I agree you have to use a calorie counter to make sure you are getting all of your protein in each day, the water each day and the exercise. Plus, keeping carbs to a low amount is key too (at least it is for me...). My doc recommended no more than 50g of carbs each day and overall, I stick to that rule. I try to focus on the protein first, and then eat my salads/veggies.... once i began a routine, i got in a groove and was able to reclaim the weight loss flow.... i use which i like a lot!! good luck, hang in there it's just temporary!!! Cheers!
  12. Don't Know How To Tell My Husband

    simply put - - the surgery is for YOU... I focused on this being a very big decision for improve my health. and I had to assess all of the benefits, risks, etc... Its a very personal/individual thing to decide...of course your hubby's approval is sought but ultimately it's for you, for your health.....and how you feel about what's right for you...there's a lot of homework and preparation for the surgeries (no matter which you go with).... You may not have everyone's support on your final decision, but you have to do what you need to do for yourself..... Good luck!! PS---I LOVE THAT I HAD THE VSG....I haven't looked back!!!
  13. Excess Skin?

    HI - - fyi - - i'm 46 and so far (56+ lbs gone) I dont sense too much excess skin.....there is a small amount in the "jigglies" my upper arm (the back of my arm biceps?).......but my belly, legs, etc seem to be "normal" for my skin. I've lost the weight and I have concerns about the excess skin myself....but I'm working on toning....and building muscle in my arms for example. The cardio doesn't give me that and I have to make a better effort in the next months as I continue to lose to work on the toning and 'excess' skin. I'm planning on gettig a trainer I think to help me. BUT, I said to myself that if I feel like I might need surgery to remove someskin, I might...but so far, it's not something that I think will happen (but you never know). I'm hoping that I can tone, and deal with what's left after I reach goal by using spanx, toning and/or hiding in my SKINNY jeans I think I'll be happy too. good luck!!!
