  6. It was great meeting you also! Thank you for the compliments... just remember, I still look in th mirror and see the chubby girl... I think I lost all the fat, and now my face looks old. Your eyes will always see all your flaws.

    You do so much in our community, I really hope you all the best... You deserve to be happy with yourself!!!!

  7. Hey, it was great hanging with you tonight! Thanks for all the support and info tonight! I looked at my face tonight and recalled yours, your face is beautiful and I would be pleased if I have the result you have had, minus your problems of course, I dont mean to minimize it. I am just saying you look great!

  9. Hello from Honolulu

    I will say ths and if you tell Dr.Z I said it he will probably poop himself... If I had to do it over again... At this time with your Dr. choicescurrently @ Tripler I would want him. He has horrible bedside manner... he is pretty short and sassy... but he knows his stuff. I know one Dr tere I wouldn't let operate on my stuffed animals.
  10. Hello from Honolulu

    REALLY I am sorry but how the hell does that happen? Last year they "Accidentally" stapled my stomach totally shut... Another girl had a punctured diaphram, several have been on TPN feeding after surgery, Several have been back to Prog ICU... I am happy today... still not getting in the food I should be... but how long will it be with all these mistakes till Tripler finally kills someone for the sake of having the largest bariatric program in the Army. Their support system sucks, I listened to the coordinator spew garbage about the support groups outside of Tripler's and I actually found it to be the complete opposite. I understand we all just want the surgery... I was there too. Now I wonder if its going to be worth it for someone else to die over. There is a reason the locals call it Cripler...
  11. Losing 100lbs ruined my life

    Last night I was talking to my husband about this post... twice I have had medical issues (hospitalizations that dragged on for months and months)) that took a toll on our marriage and we went to counseling to help us pull through the hard times... We decided to go prior to us getting into a rut that could easily have destroyed our marriage. Both times we were suggested to read a book.. The Five Love Languages. I suggest you buy the book and read it TOGETHER with your wife, take the quiz and see what her language is and she can find out what yours is... I CAN make a difference... If you cannot afford the book.. Hit me up on PM with your address and I would happily mail you a copy. Just a thought Julia
  12. Hair extenstions here I come

    Ask for Microchet... they are super for thinning crown and less noticable than fusion or those metal clips.
  13. Losing 100lbs ruined my life

    I love my husband no matter what... he could gain 100 lbs, loose a leg or get burned 85% of his body and he would still be the man I love. I agree that perhaps you should check into some couples/family counseling. Marriages are something that evolve and change as years go by. We all have to change with our spouses to make successful marriages. ALSO, perhaps she is insecure about you getting more attractive to OTHER women and feels threatened. Please make sure you talk to your Wife about how this is affecting you and also get her onboard so your children stop disrespecting you. I also want to share with you that my Dad is a big guy... I loved it when I was younger, all my boyfriends were scared of him. I always felt"safe" when I was around him... When he gave me a hug it was like I was surrounded by a brick wall. Fast forward 30 years... Now I am terrified of that call I will get that says my Dad was dead due to a heart attack from bad eating habits. Now I just wish he had thought ahead enough to lose the weight then. Julia
  14. Honey vs Sugar

    GREAT IDEA!!!! I never thought of that... I did just see a brine recipe that uses cranberry juice!!
