Half of Who I am

I had Gastric Sleeve surgery on July 14, 2011. I have started my new life since then learning to eat right for my new stomach and getting the exercise in that I so desperately need. I am well into my journey now of losing half of the weight I have been carrying around for the past 12-13 years or more.

I found that this quote from Brian Tracy suited me well in how I made my decision for gastric surgery.

"I found every single successful person I've ever spoken to had a
turning point. The turning point was when they made a clear,
specific unequivocal decision that they were not going to live like this anymore; they were going to achieve success. Some people make that decision at 15 and some people make it at 50, and most people never made it at all."

I just wanted to check in with you... I have been gone for a while. I had gastric bypass a week ago. I am ready for a change! I found your pictures very comforting and am so happy for you!! What is the biggest thing you have had to change since surgery? I find (after only a week) that I need to drink quite a bit more water each day than I ever have before.
Your success is stunning!! Keep up the great work! - I see a new summer wardrobe in your future!

I take Biotin and I've been using a special shampoo my hairstylist recommended. He noticed my hair was thinning when I had an appt last week. I will check out that website, thanks. I'm pretty lucky I have thick hair, so no one really but me can notice, and of course my hair stylist! :)))))

"Beautiful Woman Award! Once you've been given this award, you have to paste it on the wall of 8 women who deserve it. If you receive more than 3, you know you're really beautiful! If you break the chain, nothing will happen, but it's always good to know someone thinks you're beautiful inside and out"

Hope you're doing good your way! Have a great Thanksgiving next week! Can't wait for turkey!! ~Sheryl

After I mentioned L.A., I saw on your page you're from TX. We have a Dr. Kim where I was at. :)

I went ahead and ordered the EAS powder.... all I have now is the strawberry BA powder. I have some vanilla samples from Unjury, but don't really like the taste of that. The homemade soup sounds good, my family doesn't really eat too much soup, so I think if I were to make a pot it would go to waste. The shredded wheat sounds like a good idea, I hadn't thought of that yet. For lunch I had about 2T of fat free refried beans with a little fat free cheese and then a little salsa on it, it was really good. (something quick and easy for me) I also had half of a little cup of no sugar applesauce. Had 1 egg for breakfast, was able to almost get the whole thing down, except for one bite.

Anyways, good luck to you..... look forward to hearing about your progress! ~Sheryl emoticon
