  1. If you are interested in joining our monthly get-together please let me know. We meet at various locations each month in and around the metro area.
  2. Will shoot for a Thursday next time. Roasted Pear sounds great, Julie. We are mixing things up a little bit each month.
  3. I usually sit at around 1800 calories per day. I eat pretty normally, with no shakes.
  4. I saved one pair of pants, and one shirt. One of the best things ever was fitting me and a friend in my old pants.
  5. I bought a pair of size 10 levis at the thrift store. Those were my "goal" jeans. Funny thing is, I can wear size 10 jeans now, but not those. They are not even close to fitting, and I don't think they ever will. LOL
  6. I had plastics two months ago and was told I needed to be at MY goal, and my weight had to be steady for six months. I was within 10 of goal, and he was happy with that. He figured when I lost the skin I would be close to goal and he was right. I lost 7 pounds of skin. i am still adjusting to the new body. Hopefully my now bony hips will grow on me. Lol
  7. thank you so much. I think all the biking helped tone up my muscles under the skin. :)
  8. I'm finally pretty much back to normal after the plastics. They took 7 pounds of skin, and I lost another 7 while recovering. I'm now less than 5 pounds to goal. Extended tummy tuck surgery is no joke. Holy cow, it was tough, but I am beyond thrilled with the results. I've settled quite nicely in a size 10, and I am guessing I might hit an 8 after all is said and done with the swelling. I have to reschedule my 2 year check up with the bariatric clinic as i had to cancel because my Mom had a stoke on November 7. Hopefully the anemia has resolved. Thinking it has as my hemoglobin level was normal last time I had it checked. hope everyone else is doing well and loving life. Happy thanksgiving. Here re is my after photo.
  9. Found out today they took 7 pounds of skin from my tummy. They pulled one drain, but one is left in place. Hoping I can pull that in the next couple days. Still sleeping in the recliner. Bored, but not able to do much. I keep hoping for enough focus to pick up some of the knitting projects I have in prorgress, but no luck so far. We we made a quick stop at Walmart after my appointment this morning to look for sports bras. I grabbed fourth try on, and was maybe in the store ten minutes, but by the time I got to the car I was completely wiped. I took a pain pill on the way home...stumbled into the house and promptly fell asleep for 2 hour
  10. Hoping to get the drains out tomorrow. I'm fairly confident they will pull one. The other is questionable....but I am crossing my fingers. I want these out BAD!!
