Many, many years ago (about 30) I was anorexic. I ate probably less than 2500 calories a WEEK and every time I ate I would feel nauseous. When I got upset I would eat even less. I got over it, finally, when I was in my mid-20's and began ... Read more

So I'm down 44.8 pounds from my known high. Almost 30% of what my doctor told me I could expect to lose (I'm six weeks post sleeve gastrectomy) overall. If someone else told me that I'd be very excited for him/her, but for myself it seems such... Read more

So as of today I am officially 40 lbs lighter than my KNOWN highest weight. Of course, when you get REALLY HUGE (like I have been), you tend to avoid the scale. I have no clue what my REAL highest weight was, so I'm going from the highest numb... Read more
Good news bad news

The good news is I'm down 38 pounds from my all-time high and the bad news is that I'm still having some cramping when I drink liquids. The good news is that I'm nearly done with the THIRD book that I've started since surgery (I LOVE to read bu... Read more
