I am retired after 35 years in the school system, my students miss me but I am enjoying retirement.
My boob job went so well, Dr. Bernard Shuster is the best plastic surgeon, the surgery went so smoothly, and now I can go bra less if I care to.
Keeping my weight off is an everyday struggle, when I am up a lb or two I go right back to a very low card diet. Plus, I am going to the gym and the days I do not go, I walk 45 minutes.
I am so blessed, I thank God many times, all day long!

Hello to all, well my surgery went great, I feel great, just a tad tired, it's only been 9 days. It is amazing that the pain in my knees have dissipated, only with a 20lb weight loss!

I have lost a total of 32lbs. I am having a time with eating protein, nothing agrees with my pouch, so I have to drink protein shakes to supplement.

I am down 40 lbs, but I am having a lot of problems with foods, I have to have shakes. Plus, since I have to crush all my vitamins, B-Complex is a major problem.

I am now 86 lbs. I am still having a lot of problems with many foods. I think it maybe getting a little bit better. I had an endoscopy and an ultrasound. It's been a tough road I must say. I am not pureeing a lot of my foods, but I am still having a time with protein.
I would like to lose another 12 lbs, I sure hope maintenance is not going to be too difficult.

Happy New Year to my Obesity Help Group. I had an endoscopy on 12-23-10 and I am feeling much better. I am not throwing up so much. I am down 90 lbs and very happy. I am having a difficult time losing the last 7 lbs. My Dr. told me I am fine at this weight, but I would like to lose the rest, I would like to be 147.

Happy Valentine's day to you all. Well, I think I am getting better, but I still can't eat protein, I am still supplementing with protein shakes. I have now lost 102 lbs, and I weigh 143.

Hi everyone, now I am weighing 135 lbs, I am under goal, and my doctors, NUT and myself are concerned. I am having difficulty with eating protein still. When does it get better, I am almost 8 months out and I still can't tolerate most protein????

First of all I must say how thankful I am for OH, what a Godsend this site is. If I didn't have this room I think I would have gone nuts with all the issues I am having since my surgery.
Well, I am going back for another endoscopy this week. I am having problems with eating still. I now am TOO thin, I keep losing, I am 133 lbs. It is an issue, one would think if you are almost 8 months out from surgery, one could eat protein, this mama still can't!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hi again guys,
I am feeling much better, thank the good Lord, I am still not able to tolerate protein in the meat form, but I am trying to eat more protein. I eat yogurt, protein shakes, nuts, beans, tofu and cheese. Basically I am sort of a vegetarian.
I was down to 128 lbs and my NUT got really concerned, now I am up to 130 lbs, I am happy, but I am still thin.
Talk to you soon!

Today is my one year anniversary, 120 lbs gone. I had my year post op evaluation today, and all my blood work is perfect. Is hasn't been an easy year, but I would do it in a heartbeat. Plus, my surgeon, Dr. Raul Rosenthal and my nutritionist, Lillian are very good and I love them.

Wow, I haven't posted in a while! Life is great, I am still not able to eat most meat, but I do work around it getting in 85 grams of protein daily. I also walk 2 miles daily.
I have to see a counselor because I am scared C&*(%less about gaining weight. I am very thin and my Plastic Surgeon wants me to gain 5 lbs, and for me it is a major problem, I do not want to gain it. I am having breast augmentation on July 7, 2011.
