    Hi!

    Welcome back! So sorry to hear you are having issues. @tracyringo had a recent conversion.
  3. I left the hospital weighing 7 pounds more. I was crushed. It’s the liquids they pump into you.. it will come off.
  4. Right after surgery I set an alarm for every 16 minutes and drank a shot glass; 2 oz. even 7 years out; I can only chug 8-10 oz of liquid. I try not to get to the point where I’m dying of thirst.
  5. Welcome! Hope all goes smoothly!!
  6. Welcome! It will be here before you know it!
  7. Good luck! Welcome! If you have any questions feel free to ask
  8. I had cravings for pizza at that point. I added a spoon of marinara sauce to cottage cheese and microwaved it for a couple seconds. I also had refried beans with taco sauce and a little melted cheese..
  9. I knew this was the only way to get my life back. I was so nervous I nearly left the hospital. Got to the OR and said it’s not too late to run! I had failed every diet I ever tried. it truly is the best thing I ever did for myself. you can do it. Look forward to the losers bench!!
  10. Welcome! 3 weeks of the pre op coupled with a couple weeks post op, you may get bored.. but like your enthusiasm!
  11. Welcome! Hope everyday gets better!!
  12. That’s beautiful Lee!
  13. Welcome! Feel free to ask any questions you may have.. are you considering the sleeve or RNY?
