1. In your journal, keep a running list of all the things you like and appreciate about yourself. Whether it is a value like generosity or unconditional love, creativity or intelligence, or perhaps even your personal style or artistic flare! If you were a total stranger appreciating and acknowledging you, what would you see? What would you say?

sleeve revision and 6 more...

She believed she could... so she did... A simple quote... but wow... super powerful.

 I was reading though some things today, super busy at work, but this really caught my eye.  I think in my head, sometimes, I still put myself down for resorting to weight loss surgery, like i gave up.  Why do i do this to myself?  When i know that 95% of people that...

Day 2

Day 2 Not a lot to say today.  Didn't work out today.  Should feel bad about that, but in the grand scheme of things, I only need to work out 3 days a week.  So feeling bad is not a good thing.  When there is two days left in the week and I haven't worked out……time to feel bad.  Not gonna happen till then. So for today, I fe...

Gastric Sleeve April 8th, 2013

Posted by vereeni in vereeni's Blog, 17 February 2015 - - - - - - · 65 views

I had a gastric sleeve 4/8/13, however I have fallen 8/7/13 and hurt my shoulder and knee and had to have surgery to correct the injuries. However, I was treated with steriods. My weight loss worked wonderfully, until the fall. The weight loss stopped when I was treated with steriods and I gained 10 lbs back. It has been difficult to loose more and when I...

I'm looking all over the web for the rules that I had when I got banded 6 yrs ago.

Posted by GirlBarb in GirlBarb's Blog, 23 October 2014 - - - - - - · 144 views

Does anyone have a list of the guidelines that keep the band and you healthy?  It said things about not lying down for a certain length of time after eating, when to drink, how to recover after slimming, etc...
Lately I have been living like I don't have a band until it stops me. This is not good and now I cough and get acid reflux.  I wa...

So I finally got myself to the campus gym. Looking at all the bods 10 years younger than me was daunting, but then I remember that I was just like them and I say to them in my mind 'This is what you have to look forward to kids so keep sweating'. Maybe not being morbidly obese, but the struggle for sure. Of course, I'm not like others my age either (30) a...

3 weeks to Plication

3 weeks to Plication I'm the one in the middle.
In three weeks I am scheduled to have Plication done.   Im 5'4,  and at the time of the decision I weighed 195 pounds, "curvaceous" and attractive but definitely overweight.  People think I'm crazy when I have to say that I have to lose 70 lbs because I don't look like I am 195 but I feel it....

Hello OCC world.
I personally have struggled with my weight since I was a child. When I was a teenager I was losing weight until I had my daughter when I was 17 since then I cant seem to keep it off. I eat healthy and exercise and it seems to go no where. I even had my thyroid checked to see if it was that but the levels were normal. I am now the...

Questions about the Hospital?

Posted by Picasso1303 in Picasso1303's Blog, 13 June 2014 - - - - - - · 411 views

Can anyone tell me if there is a place the your companion can go to eat the day of the surgery at the hospital while you are there? I have someone coming with me and I was wondering what and how they eat that day?

Well today I sent Carolyn at OCC at huge list of questions I'd compiled. Huuuuge lol. I kind of feel bad for her! I am looking into booking my surgery for the end of August/14. I wish I could just have it done next week. Once I make up my mind, that's it and waiting is killer lol. I don't know if anyone is actually going to read this or not but it's nice...

Cutting to the chase.........Down 64 lbs!!!
I have never thrown up, not once since surgery.  I am a slow eater and I know when that "one bite" is going to be the one that sends me into burbing, belching and being miserable for the next half hour.   So I avoid that feeling at all costs.
The hardest thing for me is actually eati...

In all seriousness, I am sitting here watching "Bacon Paradise" after just watching "Pizza Paradise."  Why?  Probably because I am too tired or lazy to change the channel.  lol  Actually, I moved only one week after surgery, and then went back to work the next day.  It is just how my life has worked lately.  But anyway, I kno...
