    Long time no post.

    Thank you for this post. I needed to hear it. I have been at the same weight now for over 3 weeks and I sometimes wonder if I've lost all the weight I'm gonna lose, and I'm only 50% to my goal. I will just keep on keepin on and hope for the best. I am happy for your success!

    What Are You Wearing Today?

    Cute outfit, I've been thinking about getting some white pants, I've never owned a pair. You look great in them.

    New relationship worries

    I am married to someone who has not had wls, but who supports me 100%. His bmi is no where near where mine was, although he is overweight. He is a very secure man and has nothing but praise for me as I lose weight. I am still very attracted to him and him to me, our love was never based on looks, as looks are fleeting and very superficial. Love has to be rooted in something so strong that losing weight or gaining doesn't destroy what you have. Staying with someone or making things work, and loving them is all a CHOICE. My husband told me he would like to see how wls works for me and what it takes to keep it off and perhaps one day he may think about doing it as well. Never say never, and I just try to model good eating habits and I know he sees all the benefits of living a healthy life. I just remember that my husband loved me when I was big and loves me the same today as I am smaller than when we were married. It's been over 12 years together and I'm reminded what a good man he is, he has been my rock and anchor through this entire thing.

    Song of the day Post -

    I am sure this is considered teeny bopper music, but I love listening to Nick Jonas - Chains while I work out on my elliptical. It's up beat which keeps me working out longer.

    Health Alliance

    I have Health Alliance and I knew within just 2-3 days. But I would login to Health Alliance and check the status and once I saw it on my file that it was approved I called the surgeon's office right away, because I knew it may take a while for them to check the results, that's what I did and it worked in my favor.
  9. Yes, He was my surgeon and I think he and his office are amazing. I couldn't have asked for a better surgeon. If you have specific questions just ask me.

    Smells

    Oddly enough no. To be honest everything is completely the same for me before surgery as after, except the fact that I eat very small portions, and a smaller stomach of course. Most things people experience for the better or worse following surgery, are not things I have had to deal with. Sorry not to be of much help.
