    I find that the important thing to remember is that whether your a fast loser or a slow loser, the end result will be the same, weight loss......
    This is a wonderful journey we're on and we have a lot of learning to do here regarding our triggers to eating bad foods etc. You have done very well in your weight loss and will continue until you reach your goal..... So CONGRATS!

    this is absolutely the hardest part right here. Can you try a different protein shake. I love the Premier chocolate protein drinks from Costco. Other ones I'm not to crazy about.........This will pass soon and you will be ok.

    Ms skinniness got a reaction from newmeIowa in 4 days until the BIG one.   
    I totally did this too and I'm 20 months out and everything is all about me still.....I love it and if we really stop and think about, everyone's life is about them (me part) so why was it not okay for us before? Since i've been about me, this has also trickled down to everyone in my family and they are learning to take better care of themselves too. What a wonderful trickle down effect....... Keep it up everyone!! You will be gaining in so many different ways........

    The weight loss all depends on the person. I'm dropping weight like a wild man averaging more than 5 pounds per week. I also workout 7 days a week for at least 45 minutes a day. Today I worked out for nearly 2 hours. Of course the higher your initial BMI is the faster you are going to lose.
    I know what you mean about looking in the mirror and seeing a bigger person looking back a you. I've lost 12 inches from my waistline and dropped 2 shirt sizes. My mind still hasn't been able to comprehend that :-)

    Ms skinniness got a reaction from zempress in Not A Magic Cure--Am I Alone?   
    I actually knew that wls is not a magical cure. I did know that I didn't need all the food I was eating post opt and that the weight would come off sooner or later. I know that this is not the easiest journey for us. we are learning new eating habits and changing our life styles and reaping the benefits of good health, less medications, and we do eventually lose weight and become skinny and sexy. I believe it's all worth it in the end. I wasn't the quickest loser and at times, I was at a stand still and stalled and it did drive me crazy for awhile. But I noticed that I was losing inches during those periods and that became more important than lbs coming off.... You will reach the end result and love it...........

    Ms skinniness reacted to ARenee99 in Can You Fail With The Sleeve?   
    I was having trouble with the idea of having surgery. I then started to think about food as an addiction. I asked myself whether or not a drug addict or an alcoholic who had the option to have surgery would do it, and whether or not their choice to do so would be frowned upon. This helped me with my decision to get the sleeve. This is a GREAT post. Thanks!

    I say I am slow by forum standards, but according to doc and nut I am where I need to be. I work out 5/6 days a week some days I eat 40 carbs some days I eat 80. Some days my calories are less than 800 somedays they are near 1000. I think what people need to remember is our journeys are all individual. I am pleased with MY progress and that is all that matters. Of course the post with someone saying they loss 50lb in 3 months gets attention because pre sleevers hope that will be them and post sleevers are wishing that was them. It just creates a vicious cycle of disappoint. I am not saying that person should not post their success , but people should be realistic and need to understand this process is different for us all. I stopped hanging around the boards because other people's whining about their slow weight loss had me doubting myself!
