It was a year ago today that I had my open gbs surgery and I have really been thinking about the last year. First of all for those of you waiting for surgery I did not find the open surgery to be that bad. Sore -yes but it was not unbearable except the gas was a real pain. Walking and GaxX strips heped that alot. I, like all other had my ups(losing fast) and my downs (plateauing) but in a year I lost 120 lbs. going grom 260 (size 22) to 140 (size 8), Yes its hard to get all the protein in and the water and the pills but it will work if you do it. I would have probably lost even faster but I am not a fan of exercise for exercise sake and have pretty well just stuck to walking some , housework & yardwork. This site has been extroadinary for help , support & advice. I had baby fine thin hair to start and yes I lost hair but I cut it short started taking at least 5 mg (not mcg) of biotin a day and that is helping. By the way if you are afraid that age may make it harder for you I was 621/2 when I had the surgery and and 63/ 1/2 now but I feel so much better and even younger lol. Thank you to all who I have gotten so much good information from and good luck to all you newbies. GO FOR IT!!!!!!!!!!! Nancy

I miss traveling with my husband. Has anyone found a specific site regarding cruising for widow/widowers or any sightseeing trips.
