    13+ Months Out, Still Struggling

    Omg im so glad i saw this post. I thought I was the only one that had struggels. I was sleeved July 11 2012. I have only lost 53 pounds. It has not been a easy road. My husband is over weight. And like you say he supports me but not really. He wants to eat out all the time. And i hate to cook so it does not take much to get me to go . I hate to exercise. I do like to ride bikes. So i bought me a spin bike. And i listen to my music while i ride my bike. I started just doing it for 10 min each day. Then i worked up to 60 minuntes 6 days a week. I can tell you I get grumpy if i dont get my ride in. I think it just makes my head feel better. Its a way to get away from all my worrys. I have been trying to figure this out, I try to eat at least 80 grams of Protein a day. I have to really watch the carbs. I feel like im addicted to them again. For the first time in my life I am putting myself first. I told my husband we can only go out to eat 1x a week. And I have stuck to it. I am tired of being unhealthy, and if he does not want to join me then he will pay the price for it. I work from home and food is all around me. I did go and buy a small tote for my husband and it sits on my frig. I put his junk foods in there. If i dont see it im ok not to eat it. I buy skinny pop , Peanut Butter , rice cakes, Protein Bars, almonds. I try to make them my snack food if i have to have something. I eat my protine first , i eat off a small plate and i use a childs fork to eat with. Just this week i started to only eat at my kitchen table and i turn everything off and i just try to focus on my food. I am a fast eater and I dont chew my food up. So I hope maybe this will help to jump start my weight loss. Im on my fitness pal and i log my food on there. Its nice to see the diary's of other people that will give you some ideas on what to eat. Im only friends with people that have had the surgery on my Fitness pal. Except for my daughter. If you deside to sign up my name is lowe1961. Good luck , I know we can do this. However it is much harder then I thought. I guess I really didnt expect it to be hard.
  15. Just wondering what other complications you have had. I had my sleeve July 2012 and I have this burning in my stomach on the right side. I have acid reflux and i have been on meds for it from the beginging.

    At home Sleep Apnea study?

    I had sleep apnea before my surgery. I had surgery in July. They are droping off a machine to retest me at home this week. I dont know how much it cost cause I have insurance.The machine is just like the one I use for my sleep apnea. Except the machine will adjust the pressure for what I need now. And there is a sd card in the machine that they get the information from once the study is over with. They said it takes about 2 weeks at home.
