  1. I'm wearing my gym clothes today. I'll work out in a little while and then leave straight from the gym to do errands.
  2. Great job! You are an inspiration to all of us. Sit back and enjoy your big accomplishment.
  3. So sorry you are having to wait again but so glad they caught the lap band problem when they did! Oh, and there is nothing wrong with a good cry. You have been through a lot emotionally and a good cry will help you feel better. Hopefully with Fall and the holidays approaching you can keep yourself busy and the 8 weeks will pass quickly. Hang in there! It will happen for you.
  4. My reason was health. I'm only 5 feet tall and could hardly move. I also had diabetes, high blood pressure, sleep apnea and cholesterol. I just plan felt horrible all of the time. Now I feel great and enjoying my life. I'm off all of the meds for diabetes, blood pressure and cholesterol. I'm also no longer using my cpap.
  5. I love turkey jerky. I'm still not eating beef of any kind. Just doesn't taste good to me.
  6. I stopped using mine when I started waking up in the morning without it on...sometime during the night I'd taken it off. This was after surgery. I never did this before surgery. That being said, I was always in the in between stage - I never had severe sleep apnea.. My husband says I don't snore and am not holding my breath while sleeping. What it comes down to ... talk to your doc.
  7. Hi all! Haven't been here in a while. The cruise and meeting everyone sounds wonderful! I'm going to contact Audrey Kent, get all the info and take it to my support group. Hopefully, I and a few others will be joining y'all.
  8. I had my surgery done at Floyd hospital in Rome, GA. Dr. J. Ryland Scott was my surgeon. Fantastic surgeon, staff and hospital!
  9. If you are having trouble with water try Dasani. My surgeon says that is the easiest to drink.
  10. Hope you get the care you need and are feeling better soon!
  11. So happy and feeling great!! Top left at my heaviest 263.5 lbs., bottom left last June, and the right is a week ago at 158 lbs.
  12. How about a cruise? My daughter and I did that a couple of years ago and had a blast. You can book a cruise and make payment,
  13. I was born and raised in Charleston. We lived at 103 Trad St. When you tour the city look for it! I love Charleston ... it's a great place to walk! Also, Summerville is a pretty little town if you want to look around. We moved there when I was a teenager. We lived at 408 Sumter Ave. I am so jealous that you get to live in Charleston! Enjoy!
  14. Oatmeal made with skim milk instead of water. I eat this almost every morning.
