Stall finally broke, and I’m officially in the 100s for the first time since 1999! Feels amazing!

Trying not to boast much to fam and friends so thought I’d share here. :)

Just a typical “I’ve hit a stallllllll!” post. I know it’s (hopefully) temporary... but so frustrating. Especially being just 2 lbs from being in the 100s. Anyone else hit a 5 month stall? I guess we all get them at random times, just curious i

I just looked at a pic taken of me yesterday... honestly was shaken, thinking I had a growth or something. Suddenly realized it was my collar bones! :)

Hi everyone. I am 3 months post-surgery this week. I planned to post here a lot, but find myself not thinking to do it. This new life feels so natural to me, it’s truly second nature. I have always been very regimented except for when it came to my s

Muscle spasms around the big incision still, at week three. Every real food I try makes my tummy hurt for at least 10 mins. I’m getting half the calories my doc wants me to, but I can’t seem to get any more.

I will be having my RNY on 7/10. Soooo scared!

I have a few questions, if anyone has a minute to spare and can help me...

  • Should I bring underwear to the hospital, or is this a commando situation? Bra?
  • (I

Well I think I’m over the big hurdle... sugar detox. I spent two nights sweating through the sheets and freezing my butt off, and had a migraine up until this morning. Hoping the worst is over!

I am wondering if anyone else had the thought I

Hey gang!

I am scheduled for a lapo RNY on July 10.

I’ve been researching this surgery for over a year, meeting with the surgeon and nutrition for 8 months, and now I suddenly realize I’m in totally denial about how this will chang

I was wondering if anyone has had an open RNY and would be willing to share their experience. I do have the choice to have a lapo procedure, but I’m not thrilled with the way the lapo doc is handling the pre-surgery stuff (basically no communication

I am waiting for my insurance approval after 6 months of a supervised diet. Last night, I had an insane nightmare. Basically it was just me on the day of surgery, scared to death. I wanted to call it off but no one would listen to me and the docs were
