  1. I finally made it to onederland!!!!!

    I'm fine. I've been busy house hunting among other things. I try to check in when I have a chance. In other news, I've hit another stall but I'm pushing along though. Hopefully it will break soon.

    CONGRATULATIONS TRISH!!!! You absolutely rock! Goal weight is on the horizon and as always, I wish nothing but the best for you!
  3. It’s really working!!

    Psychologically, weighing yourself everyday would not be a good idea. Water levels in your body tends to fluctuate a whole lot and if you get on the scale tomorrow, you might be 2 pounds heavier then you were the day before and you didn't do anything wrong. Try to weigh yourself once a week. Don't get discouraged because you will learn that your weight will fluctuate a whole lot in this journey.
  4. As @BurgundyBoy mentioned, I'm restricted from strenuous exercise and I've lost 110lbs in 7 months with very little exercise. Walking is the only exercise I have done after my cardiac arrest in October of 2015. I walk 3 times a week 15 to 30 minutes. The key is staying with the post op meal plan your nutritionist gave you. Don't get discouraged when you hit a stall. I've hit several stalls and I'm currently in one. Your energy levels will come back and you be fine. Just be patient continue to follow the post op plan that was set up for you.
  5. Let's Talk Turkey

    I'll be the first to admit that I indulged in some things that was not in my post-op meal plan. I am a coffee drinker and I drink a medium cup everyday. I'll have a slice of thin crust cheese pizza once or twice a month but other than that, I have not deviated from my meal plan. I know I have to stick tight to the plan because I am restricted from any strenuous type of exercise which is key component in losing weight.
  6. Gum? Can I have it?

    I finally got back around to eating meatballs after that ordeal.
  7. Maintenance Time

    Outstanding! You don't look like the same person. I just love watching the awesome transformations here, you guys are truly an inspiration to me! Maintenance mode, I'm looking forward to that day!
  8. I hit the 100 lb loss mark this morning!

    46 days is not unusual to me, I've had some migraines to last me 30 days. I'm down 105 pounds and counting. I'm hoping to hit onderland too before that happens as well!

    The Topamax doesn't completely prevent you from having a migraine but it can reduce or limit the reoccurring migraines after the initial one has started. The best thing to do is to identify what triggers the migraines and try to stay away from it.

    Thanks Trish! My migraines come in spells. I can have them every other day for a month and then I can go almost a year without having another one. By the way, I saw your profile pic and you are looking really, really good keep up the good work!
  11. I hit the 100 lb loss mark this morning!

    Thanks for the hugs, I wouldn't wish a migraine on my worst enemy if I had an enemy. I've been taking Topamax twice a day for the last 10 years. I almost gotten good in finding out what triggers my migraines.

    Thank you, losing the excess weight is extremely a good feeling.
  13. I hit the 100 lb loss mark this morning!

    I'm always wearing underwear, my pants have fallen down before, I'm just lucky I never made it outside my house when it happened. Lol!

    Sorry for the late response. I haven't been able to buy that outfit, I suffer from debilitating migraine headaches for over 25 years and I've been in and out of the hospital the past week. I'm feeling much better now. Soon as I get that outfit, I will post pictures.
  15. I hit the 100 lb loss mark this morning!

    I want to thank all of you for your kind words. I'm going to buy just one outfit, I promise! Lol!
