  1. Very awesome! Keep yourself honest. You can maintain!
  2. Congrats to so many more years of love!
  3. Written beautifully. I can relate to every instance besides running the half marathon. I did run my first 5 k last October. End of April I am trying a 10 k. I only jog so reading that you really run is very inspirational to me. I feel lost now that I have stopped losing but reading your experience gives me a new outlook on my year two, I'll keep training to build strength. I remember reading about your walking vacation and often hope I can do that sometime. I have enjoyed following you because you are a year ahead of me and I can see what path you have had and I want to follow. Good luck on your year three progress.
  4. I love your nsv. I was just talking about this same experience. Your story hits home. I have taken one step further, yesterday I saw a nutrition psychologist. I have met my doctors goal weight and he too wants a 5 pound gain for me but I have returned to many of my old eating habits and am scared to gain 5 pounds. I still would love to lose 10 pounds but doctor wants gain. Many head issues going on! The psychological visit has given me a few ways to re-evaluate my thoughts. I pray I can do this. Keep up your journey and be true with yourself!! Yesterday was my one year anniversary, 115 pounds gone!

    still here!

    I missed you too!!!! So glad you are back! Prayers for good test results.
  9. I noticed strands on bathroom counter slightly more then usual. I didn't have ANY noticeable hair loss on scalp which I was very concerned about before surgery. I did take biotin after surgery but stopped at five months post op because I hadn't had hair loss. My nutritionist told me that biotine was not proven scientifically. Whether it helped me or not I don't know, but happy to report that at 11 months out now, I haven't lost hair!
  10. That is great!! I have attended meetings every month. I don't get much out of some, but others are remarkable. I need this group and my monthly meeting to help me keep accountable to myself. Last meeting it was announced that starting in April meetings will be held twice monthly. I am so happy, two weeks is so much better to go without live communication then one month. I do pray your depression lightens and your healing progresses smoothly.
  11. Always feel great about yourself. DONT allow food to change that!!you are doing great!
