  1. Hi! I just recently had RNY on 1/19 and noticed you weighed the exact same as I did (1 lb less!) but we are the same height and you look WONDERFUL! I was wondering how long it took you to get there?!

  2. A couple weeks shy of 5 years, and I havent been here in a LONG time. I cant even believe I got my password correct on the first try. I feel compelled and obligated to pay respect to this place by checking in at 5 years post op, because this place is literally the biggest reason I *continue* to be successful, it is the knowledge I gained and the support I received here that are the reasons I can say: I AM A SUCCESS STORY. When I say that, i dont mean just in terms of weight loss, physical transformation, and a healthier body; because that is not the ultimate goal of this surgery. Th
  3. You go girl!! You look AMAZING, just look at that gorgeous hourglass shape!!!
  4. you look FANTASTIC! I had to re-read when you said that was only 3 days out, because even swollen they look amazing!
  5. Breasts--- Check Tummy Tuck---Check Arm Lift---CHECK! Hey Ya'll! Just thought I'd update! I had my arm lift last Friday and so far i am doing great! I got an exended one that goes below my armpit as well so I dont have that stretchy side boob skin and I have to wear this garment thing that's really annoying, i'm still very swollen and my sutures come out on Friday, but other than that, I am feeling awesome! I will update in THIS thread as i progress, but here are my befores and my afters so far!!:
  6. YES! It goes away! I had dark skin in my "groin" area (inner thighs), under my arms, behind my neck and on my chest (i was pre diabetic so those were usual) And it all went away. I agree that exfoliating it helps, it was weird because I remember the day i was washing up, and it just started rubbing off, like all my dark skin just, rubber off! And I ran out and showed my sister and she was like "WOW!!"
  7. OH, something i didnt think about...what about Champagne? i've never tried it...I know it's still carbonated, but is it as "blah" as beer? What i hate about beer is since it's wheat based, it really just kind of, weighs me down. Carbonation has never bothered me (sparkling water, or Refreshe waters) it actually settles my stomach, but anyway, Champagne?? Hmmm
  8. Thank you guys! You've been giving me some pretty good ideas, I'm excited to try all of these out and see what I come up with! I even found a recipe for "sugar free kahlua"
  9. Thank you! I will definitely try these, i forgot Crystal Lite had these flavors! I suppose I could put the margarita one in a blended too? lol! I'm about to make a book on this...lol
  10. HELLO ALL Well I turned 21 this month! (woo!) Lol, of course, I'm not like most 21 year olds in the sense that, well, I can't just go out and go crazy. I'm also too busy with school all year 'round, and am trying to get into medical school, so I keep my mind clear, but I wanna have fun for once! At least for my 21st! lol I don't plan on going out, i plan on having friends over and playing some games and enjoying a few drinks. So, i know i know, obviously Alcohol isnt "encouraged" after bypass, but im over 2 years out, perfect blood levels, I never ever have carbs or sugar, (I dump on sug
  11. Something I learned when i went to the ER for dehydration, was that "Dehydration" doesnt just include water intake. I drink water ALLL day, and that day was no different. i had been dehydrated before so i recognized the symptoms, and so i just made sure to continuously sip water until finally at around 7PM i just couldnt stand the nausea and was starting to heave up some water, and decided to head for the ER. There, i got another bottle of water from the vending machine after Triage Nurse gave me a Zofran sublingual which helped (i knew it would) and then drank another huge cup of water to p
  12. Trust me, I do not mind the questions at all!! I went over the muscle, because i had low-set nipples, and when you go over, it provides a tiny lift and so that gave me the tiny lift I needed/wanted. ALSO, when you go under the muscle, you lose 50CC's in appearance. Before I lost weight, I was a 40-42 D/DD (depending on the bra) Of course, they didnt look nice and perky or anything because it was mostly fat tissue. Anyway, After i lost weight, I went down to a 32 A, and even then, I didn't fill it out, and my "cleavage" was wrinkly, extra skin. I had what they call "concave breasts" where my
  13. THANK YOU!! Lol I feel very lucky to have not needED a breast lift! I will most likely need one later on when I get them redone for maintenance, or to switch to a higher profile and silicone (too young for silicone when I got em!) But right now I have 600 CC saline shells, overfilled to 670CC, Moderate Plus profile. I'd like to later on get 800CC silicone Ultra High Profile...but that's wayy later!
  14. Hey guys! thanks for all the positive remarks! I am one week out, and feeling AWESOME. I cant wait to get these drains out, but other than that, I can get up and down, walk around and do everything on my own the swelling goes down by the day! It;s crazy, i keep having to tighten my compression garment!
  15. Girl, you do not sound creepy AT ALL. I was and am still the same way with other people's pictures!! haha! and it's day 6 for me and so far im feelin' great (and like i said, i have two scars vertical and horizontal) So i would imagine that if yo get just the horizontal which is the normal one, two weeks would be fine. I had my 2nd post op yesterday, and got the stitches removed, and should be getting drains out Monday!
