I am 6 months post-op and Goal Weight! Go me. But my body is changing shape on weird ways every day. Now, my breast are smaller than they have been since puberty. I know that breasts are mostly fat, but one of my breasts has caved in on the top. It is

Yes, I shoukd ask my team, but the whole office is out sick with food poisoning, so my 6 month was reschedule for 2 weeks from now.

So, how many calories should I be eating now? I was told 800 to 1000 calories for months 3 to 6. Should I stay

Ugg. My family is the worst. Just got back from Easter Dinner with the family. One of the first things my mom said to me is, "You're looking better (meaning thin), but I really wished you were going to lose that double chin." Yeah, um, so. She sucks. I

After surveying my Hurricane, my biggest weather worries should be behind me. However, my Ireland trip has been disrupted by the "Beast from the East." We are snowed into the hotel and the whole country has shut down. I'm glad I packed my protein bars,

Saturday began my trip and I have just been ticking off NSVs almost hourly. The first one was not only fitting into my airplane seat, but having over a foot of seat belt slack?! I bought off the rack clothing in a foreign dress shop!

But the mo

I will be traveling internationally all next week and I am starting to panic. I am about 5 months post op. I don’t want to sabotage myself, but I still want to try new things in Ireland. I will be gone a full week. I have packed some protein bars, bu

I'm 4.5 months post-op and I am starting to get hungry again, but the worst thing is the return of the late night munchies. I know the best solution is to sleep through the night, but I have been waking up at 2am the last week hungry. Does anyone have

Today, I fainted in my kitchen and cracked my head super hard. I had to go to the hospital to get stitched up. I have three stitches above my eyebrow ad a collection of steristrips. Now that it is the middle of the night, a Friday on a holiday weekend,

Today. I am 11 and 1/2 weeks post op and I am now officially overweight! 185 at 5’6”. I can’t believe it. My doctor said my 12 month goal weight was 165. When he said that, I laughed thinking that would be impossible, but nice to aim for. Now, I

Today, I tossed out the last of my "plus size" clothes. Everything I wear is "straight" sized now, mostly XLs and a few Larges. Woot woot, go me.

On the other hand, gained a few pounds with the transition to regular food. Seems like every time

I have moved up to soft foods! Hooray! But it takes almost an hour to eat my 2-3oz. of protein. How do y’all keep your food warm all that time? I started with a nice piping hot cabbage roll and by the end it was an ice cold meat lump of sadness :(

Today, I crossed my legs at the knees. I can’t remember the last time I did that. Then, later I tied a sweater AROUND MY WAIST! Whoa!!! Go me!

I started in full liquids yesterday and it's been awful. My premier protein shakes are making me dizzy and I just soent two hours in bed cramping from my 4 oz. of cream soup. Am I doing something wrong?? I am not lactose intolerant and I am sip, sip, s

I am now 7 days post-op. I am doing great with the pain, getting all my fluids every day and walking. But I have not lost a single pound! I was up 3 pounds at my post-op appintment. Ugg. When will the weight loss start?

I did lose 14

My surgery is on Monday and then Saturday, unless I am physically unable to move, I am going to a football game, because... football! Anyway, at last week's game it was 95 degrees and I drank 4 liters of water in about 3 hours and was still feeling the

My bypass was scheduled for the day after hurricane Harvey. I was annoyed beforehand, but now I am grateful I hadn't had just before. Our house took on a foot of water and while the kids were rescued by boat, my husband and I had to walk over a mile in
