  9. So I am almost 8 weeks out. I am trying to eat things that will help me get my protien in without having to suppliment with my drinks. I ate almonds is that bad? I remember them saying to stay away in the first 6 weeks have any of your dietians said anything about it...on the subject of food when can I try lettuce and fresh fruit and veggies?

    Frustrated

    Morg My love whats wrong DO you feel it is emotional eating or is it you just eat what you want now because you can? I am sorry you feel down right now but look how far oyou have come. Remember all the reasons you went to thi extreme to have this surgery done. Remember how you felt! Remember everything. W have to want to be heathy and (skinn) wink wink more than food. W can do this

    Head hunger

    OMG I will be 6wks post op on Tuesday net week. I have been going cazy for my parents food. I am having trouble taking down chicken and fish well anything othe tan "mushy" foods. Maybe its a sricture but I have caled my dr.s office 4 times and ae yet to hear from somene. Anyways I am dying for my moms homeade tortillas and my dads chile fries. I am still happy got the surgery I will never regret it its just the mental part that is the hardest.
  13. It is amazing to hear men speak on this subject. Its so often that women talk about having a plus size store for them but hate what is avaliable let me tell you the clothes are ugly and very pricey. Yes there are clothes that are supposed to be made for us but let me tell you there are only a hand full o foutfits I like aftr years and years of shopping at a plus ize store. I want to dess my age not 100 years older. lol

    Our Kel (Mistymee) is in ER!

    Kel, Let us know you are ok. My thoughts and payers are with you.
  15. I must say the surgery went well. The past two weeks have been cake with eveything but my emotions. I was depressed before the surgery but man I feel like a black cloud is hovering over me. I knew that we would have a time with depression with major surgery. I thought that nothing would take me from being on cloud nine. How did you get past this?
