  1. It has been several months since I have been on TT. There is good information here coming from others experiences and challenges.

  2. Open gastric bypass surgery

    Hi. I had an open RNY October 2011. I have not had any problems so far. No major gas or anything. I do not like the scar that it left, but, I healed well. I did have to sleep in a recliner for about 2 weeks. I felt like I was suffocating when I tried to sleep in the bed. Good luck with your surgery.
  3. Anyone in GA?

    Hi. Georgia Peach here.

  5. Did you lose your breasts?

    The girls have left the building. But, I found a great bra at Victoria's Secret that gives the illusion that they are still there.

  12. I can hardly believe that it has been six months since my GBS. Where did the time go? My weight loss has slowed down, and my appetite has grown. I was bombed when I realized how hungry I was all of the time. I am so glad that I have learned better eating habits and that I still enjoy going to the gym. I can say that I am very happy with my progress. I am also very grateful for all of the love and support that I have received from my family and friends.

  14. Weight Loss Slowing Down

    I have slowed down as well. I am about 4 months out. I started lifting weights a few weeks ago, and the scale did not move. I could also tell that I was loosing inches when I wasn't loosing weight. I figured I was lifting too many weights, so I slowed down. The scale is moving again. My surgeon did tell me that as time goes on, I could become more comfortable with food. I use to log every bite and exercise.
  15. The scale is moving again. Yea!
