  1. I could drink normally right after surgery. Not sure why, but I did.
  2. Feeling embarrassed

    It is hard to hear compliments from friends and family. I struggle with that too. It makes me wonder what they really thought of me 76 pounds ago.
  3. Coffee Creamer

    I use the SUGAR FREE Coffee-Mate for my tea.
  4. REALLY- Stalled !

    Sounds normal to me too! Hang in there girlie!
  5. Soda pop & coffee post-surgery?

    Prior to surgery, I was so addicted to Diet Coke!! I haven't had a drop in 6 months and I don't miss it at all. I'm not a coffee drinker, but I do like a cup of hot decaffeinated tea.
  6. Skin Tags

    I've always had my skin tags removed by my pcp.
  7. Tired Of Compliments

    Some people just don't think before they speak.
  8. Before And After..5 Months Next Week!

    You look fabulous!!!!
  9. I have always had a SUPER sense of smell, so I haven't noticed any change. This unique feature of mine drives me crazy sometimes because I can smell everyone's bad breath, B.O., dirty hair, etc.
  10. Oh Sweetie....hang in there! It does get better, but it takes time.
  11. Face Pic: Before And Current

    It's sometimes hard for me to see a difference in my body even though I know I am wearing smaller clothes. I can notice the difference in these before and current face pics.
  12. Body Odor

    OMG ~ I am so glad someone posted about this! Since having surgery my deoderant that I have used for years no longer works for me. By the end of the day, I smell sweaty. I have never had stinky armpits before! Guess it is time to switch deoderants!
  13. Hair Loss

    I am 3 months post op and am losing hair like crazy! I am taking Biotin and it has helped with regrowth. I am thankful that I have a ton of hair to start with.
  14. What To Wear After, For How Long?

    I had 18 incisions and just wore my nightgown. I couldn't sleep with underwear on for it hurt my stomach.
  15. How Did Everyone Do?

    Much to my surprise.....I lost 3 pounds! I went to two different Thanksgiving feasts too. I was so dreading the scale this morning. I just stuck with my proteins and splurged a little and had some mashed potatoes!
