Hello People, How are ya! I have not been on here in a while because i simply gave up on myself. But now, I am motivated alot because on my birthday, Feb 23 rd. I have Gastric Bypass surgery. I am so much happy now. I know it may have been an easy way out, but it was just as expensive and feeding my face at Mc Donald's. So, that being said... I am free of my hunger issues. I am free!! I dream that someday soon, I will no longer be in the PLUS SIZE stores. I pray to god to let me have this one thing. I am doing really well with my soft foods... not junk desires, and i have quit smoking... sinse comeing back from the hospital. Not even 1 sig... Thanks:)

I don't think major surgery is really the easy way out of anything!

Good luck with your journey, you have found a great place here at 3FC!

Yeah, I agree with Lori - there's no easy method to weight loss, it's a matter of finding the right one for YOU. And it sounds like you have. Best of luck!

Easy way out? Puhlease! I know I sure couldn't do that and I've seen people go through Gastric Bypass and it looks harder to me!

Good job making the right decisions though! :)

Hey, where have you been? I like your face. You have the biggest eyes... Yeah, I had to make this choice. I am much happier now... and any cravings I may have had is gone... I have no desires to eat junk. I cannot hold very much food, so I will make it worth it when i eat. I eat the best stuff... I enjoy my steamed chicken or fish... I savor my veggies.. and mmmmmmmmmmm watermelon....? that is my fruit of choice... I eat less that 1 cup a day. and that is spread throughout the day. so sugar is not a problem... I feel so great,,, and happy.... miss u all and take care.:carrot:

I am not allowed to exercise till after 3 months, but walking is good... bye lovely's
