I'm still losing...down to 164.4 almost into the 150s... yay! I had gained about 4#s during the thanksgiving week but then I went back to normal (168) and now I've lost. Weird... So, how about you all? Can you believe year 2 is coming up? Elisa

Way to go Elisa! You've done so great since all us Feb 06's started. It really is hard to believe year 2 is coming up! Keep up the great job! This board is gonna die if we don't start posting more lol...but it's understandable with all our "new" lives we have, at least a few of us still check in sometimes Take care.

Elisa, Congratulations on working your way there! You've done a terriffic job and you should be very proud. What am I saying? I know you are! keep up the great work. I know what you guys are saying with the 2 years coming up; it seems like it was just the other day! I mean, I've lost a lot of weight and people don't recognize me anymore, but it seems like I just had surgery. Time flies, eh? Let me tell 'ya, the not getting recognized by people I used to be good friends with really hurts. I mean, seriously, anyone else had this issue? I saw someone in the grocery store and we used to really laugh it up; be good friends. I haven't seen them in about a year and a half, pretty close to after my surgery date. I saw them and they could not remember me. They're like, "Nuh-uh! No way! You're Jen?! Naw!" They were so baffled. It hurt my feelings because I could see in their eyes they really had no clue who I was. Not a shred of recognition whatsoever! Wow. It struck deep. That must've been what George Bailey (Jimmy Stewart) felt like when he "was never born" on It's A Wonderful Life! You know? Okay, sorry. Didn't mean to turn this about me. I apologize, Elisa. Have you every experienced that? I'll stop now. Jen Halliday

Thank you so much Jen! I actually don't mind when people, from high school for example, don't recognize me. Most of my friends, who I am good friends with, still recognize me. I guess my face is still looks the same to them? Have your facial features changed drastically? Perhaps it's harder to recognize you because you wear more make-up now? Or something... I just don't see why people wouldn't know it's you? Even my neighbor (she's an old lady) who I have not seen in years recognized me...well yea not at first...I did have to tell her who I was but I knew I would have to do that. I guess I just know I have to tell people who haven't seen me since my weightloss who I am. I don't mind it though. This is actually an interesting subject...I hope someone else can share their experience. So far, I don't mind it. Take care Jen Elisa

Congratulations I've lost 8lbs but I think that had to do with my plastic surgery but hey, I'll take the loss anyway I can get it I don't want to lose anymore weight, I'm just focusing on maintaining which is a job in itself. Great job Sylvia

Congrats Elisa! That is so awesome! I can hardly believe it's almost 2 years since our surgery. We have all done so great! I had been stuck between 162-165 but I stepped on the scale the other day and low and behold it said 158. Yay! It's great to see we are still losing.

Well I'm not losing but not really gaining either. Other than my usual "monthly gain". It's really hard for me not to step on the scale and panic a little. I've never lost the 5lbs I gained after my TT so I'm just floating around 135-140. I don't really want to lose anymore but I DO NOT want to gain. Glad to hear everyone is doing so good!
