    vsginnj got a reaction from Bloodhound in Things You Can Never Have Again With Sleeve :(   
    I was a huge coke drinker. Also a huge coke user (a long time ago in a far off galaxy). Wait don't judge let me finish......I remembered something I heard at a 12 step meeting "try our way for 90 days if you want your old life back it will be there waiting for you" so knowing they would be making coke well into the future I promised 90 days to myself and haven't looked back.90 days out fat was dripping off me like a pig in an oven and I wasnt gonna mess that up . Now I honestly see it for what it is 12 teaspoons of sugar in a can with bubbles and some other crap, gotta pass on that. I guess it comes down to this "nothing is going to change till ya change it" . so to answer your question yes you can; taper off , Water it down , cold turkey. Just decide you will stop and make a plan!

    vsginnj got a reaction from Bludtkr in popcorn.   
    Blah blah it's not healthy, it is healthy, stuck in the colon or between your teeth! The telling part is not the popcorn, it's the behavior of rewarding yourself with food !!! Why can't the improved health of going to the gym or some new clothes or spa time be your reward? The fact that you feel you " deserve " some popcorn is scary to me! I had to take a good look at that and make changes there myself !! Good luck to you!

    vsginnj got a reaction from endless80 in 420 and gastric sleeve   
    Not judging, I have tons of experience! However during a weight loss program why add the challenge of using something that makes you HUNGRY?? That said ,prolly best to wait long enough that any coughing won't rip incisions or your new tummy open, say about a month.

    I believe that exercise has been very important in my success, I go to the gym at least 3 days a week usualy 4 or 5, when there I do 30 minutes of cardio and 45 minutes of strength training. Building muscle is essential to burning fat.

    vsginnj reacted to gmanbat in The flexible "like" button...   
    The "like" button here means more than like to me. When someone is relating a problem it means empathy not that I like that they are having a problem. When they are having a battle it means support. When they have a victory it means applause. When they make a good point I am saying, "Here,Here!" When they tell a funny I am chuckling along.
    I would guess that you feel and think things that I have not mentioned when you hit the button.
    Having a row of more specific buttons would present problems with the reputation point system. At the risk of being misunderstood, I still like the "like".

    My oldest starts school next week.. Pre-k.. So she's going half days. I figured since I will be going out everyday why not make the most of it and it won't be weather permitting I go jogging or walking.. I have a 2 1/2 yr old and the have daycare there which is great for her because she starts dance as well!! I work 2nd shift so this will be worth it while I work nights!!

    Always like the positive feedback. Especially from the ladies.
    Thanks All for the compliments. I never thought I would go through surgery to be where I am now but it surely is a life changer (saver) and I'm very thankful I've had no real issues like from some I've read.
    Modern medicine, good Doctors and work on my behalf has made my 2nd half of life horizon so much brighter!

    Sure - one of my responsibilities of being further out as a post op is to share information which others in order to help breed success. I am happy to do this. These techniques I have mentioned above have really helped me with tightening up the core section. The day will come when I can breath a sigh of relief and say "goal accomplished!" In the meantime, i am diligently working at this goal of getting a tight core daily. I am looking forward to having a rock hard core where I am proud of my shirt off without resorting to a TT.

    Very thought provoking points there Butter! Your posts are always an interesting read. Yeah, we are all on "diets" to some degree. The main aspect is what kind of diet are we on? Good, bad, indifferent? For me before the sleeve, I had an awful diet, now it's better. But I see what you're saying on the diet comment. We all have to aware of what we are putting in our bodies, which pretty much is a diet. Especially if we want to eat healthy foods, eat to fuel our exercises, eat to maintain, eat to maximize muscle, etc. For me, I try to make sure I have what I need to stay strong, lean and energetic.....so I call that my "nutritional approach".....but we all know it's still a diet........my diet.
