  1. Just wondering what you’re up to and how you’re doing.    Hope all is well!

  2. An unexpected consequence of losing 120 pounds is that I'm SO COLD! This is my first winter that my weight hasn't been in the vicinity of 300 in over a decade - I guess it makes perfect sense that shedding pounds would equate to shedding layers of warmth, but I never considered it. Not that I would go back to my pre-surgery self for a million dollars, but man. I am freezing!! Anyone else?
  3. Thanks! It has been an absolutely wonderful year. I posted a before and after shot on my Blog.
  4. Thank you so much!! You're looking fantastic yourself, and I have appreciated every kind and encouraging word you've shared over the past year. I feel lucky to have gone through this journey with you and our other November pals - such a fantastic group of people!
  5. Thank you for your kind words. What you said about still not managing to reclaim your sense of self worth hurts my heart. It's just so hard, but we must never stop trying.
  6. Thanks so much. You can always count on me to keep it real! p.s. That's my kitty, Brian!
  7. Hi guys! Today is my one year surgiversary and it just hit me HARD. As I sit here, literally sobbing at my desk with my office door closed, I thought I'd share a few thoughts with the one group of people that I know can understand my feelings more than anyone else. One year ago I was a smart, talented, woman who had cultivated a solid "fun, pretty-faced fat girl" personality over the decades of my obese existence. As my weight increased over the years, the best and most important parts of me were shrinking and I was turning into a "shadow person." I would cheer on anyone and everyone in l
  8. One year! I did it!
  9. Had some fun going to a family wedding and seeing lots of folks that haven’t seen me in years.
  10. Love hearing this. I have so enjoyed having you, in particular, to look to as someone on a similar journey at a similar time.
  11. Thanks @Jen581791 and @msmarymac. I really thought everyone was going to start internet screaming at me (lol) and I appreciate your open mindedness.
  12. I would like to offer a different perspective - one that I know is not popular on TT, and that I have been afraid to express on here (which is why I spend less time on this site these days). There is an alternative to a super low carb diet. You can practice moderation. I am a recovering binge-eater, and my psychologist (who specializes in working with obese patients) figured out that for me, the concept of cutting out carbs was a recipe for disaster. Basically, the minute I tell myself that I can't have something, all I want to do is eat ALL of it. I was not one of the lucky ones that los
