I'm guessing you don't see your surgeon until your one year? You probably will have stabilized by then and if so in all likelihood they will be okay with where you are as long as you are in a normal BMI range (not below), are eating healthy and taking all vitamins. I was just realizing that your goal was the same as mine and our surgiversaries are exactly 11 months apart. When I went to my one year, I was in the weight range I'm in now (7-10 pounds under goal). My surgeon was happy with that and said to continue doing what I was doing (and repeated that at my 1.5 year visit).

Hoping and praying your mammogram and ultra sound turn out benign for your breast lump, Janet. I went through this a while back and I know how scary it can be.

Keep us posted on when you go in for the mammogram/ultrasound. The good part is that with the ultrasound, they'll at least know right there and then what's going on. At least that's been my experience. Will be thinking about you!

So as far as my 'goal' weight went, I just sort of settled into where I am now without really changing anything (OK, I did get more lax on things like tastes and eating more things, but it just happened more naturally than me actually planning it out), and here I've sat for months now. Hopefully your body will find it's happy place and you can get it all equaled out easily!

I am really glad that you are being proactive and also that your primary doc is taking the changes seriously too. I will be thinking about you and hope you can get in quickly for the mammogram and ultrasound soon.

I went through a similar scare 10 years ago. Thankfully, all was well. I hope you can get your mammogram and ultrasound scheduled quickly. Thinking of you and rooting for you Janet!

Good morning. Thank you for using the question -- I'm looking forward to hearing people's suggestions!

I'm down to my last 7 hours of work. I think I am starting to mourn my leaving, which I didn't really expect. I felt depressed yesterday.

QOTD: I've done restaurant gift cards too and unique candles, but would like to hear some other (perhaps more novel) ideas?

1 year, 7 months post-op (maintenance). 2 work days to retirement (11/13) - 4 hours today and 3 hours tomorrow.

B: eggbeaters, cottage cheese and Canadian bacon

L: Ham and cheese

D: ahi tuna

S: cottage cheese and yogurt

I've cried when I've left every job I ever had. It is a big change and even if you're glad you're leaving it makes you melancholy to be leaving a place where you've spent so much time.
