  1. Welcome @Dianerae! Your case of nerves is very normal! You are embarking on a journey that will make you feel so much better. My energy levels are great now. Believe me after your surgery and you see the pounds falling off, the only thing you will ask yourself is "Why did I not have WLS sooner?"
  2. My nut had no issues with coffee. Contact your nutritionist.
  3. I am guessing I consume 2000 - 2200 calories on an average day now (2.5 years post-OP). I also exercise 4 days per week. So far pretty steady at 156 pounds - one pound over goal weight of 155. @Aln1218, what is an average day of eating for you?
  4. The only times I have had any problems with reflux is when I have eaten something right before laying down to take a nap. Probably 3x at the most, and I am 2.5 years post surgery. Now I know better than to lie down soon after eating! Please also keep in mind that Facebook groups seem to prevail in gloom and doom.
  5. You look great honey! And so happy to see you posting here <3 Keep up the outstanding work my dear friend! <3
  6. @CheeringCJ - Girl, I am so immensely PROUD of you. I can echo so many of your sentiments and I enjoyed this update so much! Thanks for sharing. You are an inspiration to many. Don't ever forget that <3
  7. Hello everyone! Our youngest daughter got married in August - so sorry I am slow to post pics. Was a perfect day for an outdoor wedding in Wisconsin (Sunny & 73!) Mother of the Bride is still maintaining at goal weight of 155. Though I am not here daily, I still browse and hope everyone is doing well <3
  8. How exciting to be able to share this with your spouse/best friend/love! Best wishes for amazing results and a speedy recovery @PapaDavid!

  11. Welcome to The Thinner Times! I cannot wait to hear how WLS will also change your life in a powerful way! Looking forward to your updates! Feel free to ask any questions. There is a ton of wisdom on this site

    Sounds like water to me! Hang in there tracy! It's frustrating that this is a life-long change sometimes, but you look great and you are worth it!

    Day 2

    I would check with your doctor on the pills recommendations. The crazy thing is you may not need the meds for long as you lose the weight!
