Oh ma gosh...I almost forgot to mention that not only did I lose 58.5# but I have also dropped from a size 26 and or a 3X to a size 16 dress slacks and a large to x-large top depending on how it is made! I simply can't beleive the changes already. I no longer am having to shop in the plus size department and this feels fantastic! Let me tell you also...the sex department like I have heard so many other people comment on is sooooo true...just when you think things are great they get even better! My DH is having a ball with all the changes and says he notices almost daily now. Well I have rambled on long enough.

Hi Everyone. It has been a long while since I posted and I wanted to let you all know that I am doing great! I just updated my profile and my picturetrail page that is linked to my profile. I am now 3 months and 1 week post op and feeling great. I have lost 58.5 pounds and lots of inches. My chart has the details on my page. I am having trouble being able to eat meats of any kind. The diectian would like me to be able to eat a portion the size of a deck of cards and I am lucky to get in more than one or two small bites. They may be wanting to do an upper GI soon because it just feels like my stoma is a bit too tight. Other than that things are going very well and all my lab work so far is wonderful. I hope everyone else is getting along good. I miss the site but with my new found energy I just can't seem to sit at the computer very long these days. I do pop in from time to time though and I certainly think of you all often. You are all in my thoughts and prayers and thanks for all the emails you all have been sending me. Hugs and Kisses!

I am doing great...my weight loss has slowed ..I am down to 215 and stuck there now...I think it may have to do with what I am eat..Seriously thinking of going back to the basic's , jello and soup etc....to see if that helps. Hope all is well with you, ttyl :-)

My apology for not being able to post. We are on the road & no computer! After talking with Brenda the other night, I must say she is doing really truly GREAT! Everything is staying down, the pain is minimal, she is walking & taking liquids, right on schedule! Everything is very good. The incision looks good. Her hubby is a dream helper. Keep it up Brenda!
