    SleeveandRNYchica got a reaction from joatsaint in Are You a Half-Fast Loser?   
    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!

    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!

    Rita, wishing you a speedy recovery. I am sorry you are going through this. Don't let this forum get you down. I have only seen a few doctors post and none of them have been WL Surgeons. My point is, they are opinions. Leaks are real, they do exist, anyone that has researched the surgery knows that. Many prayers for you from South America.

    What a freeing experience. I am so glad you are able to realize the beauty of it all. It is hard to let go of relationships at times for whatever reason are not meant for us. Although, difficult at the time when you look back you will realize it made you stronger and better. Something is always waiting on the otherside of it.

    Hang in there! I totally understand the cultural and social aspects. It is the center of my world. It is sad but true. It will get better. From what I have read on here so many people go through the same thing. You are doing great and should be very proud.

    I think I might be a weirdo! I watched on Youtube last night and thought it was very interesting (not sure how else to word it). My husband on the other hand left the room. I always liked those surgery shows and such.

    I am a newbie, no surgery yet. I've read your posts and it sounded like you were doing well. What happened? Maybe you are just having a bad day. From what I have read, it's common to be very emotional the first month or so. You've taken a huge step to be healthier and happier. I hope you feel better about your decision tomorrow.

    Hey! Thanks for the reply. Nothing in life is promised to us-life isn't even promised to us- and when I read people post stuff like, "when I lose all my weight, I'm going to wear jeans and heels and strut my stuff" all I can think is, "what if you die before then?" You would never get to wear jeans and heels and strut just because you thought you were too fat to do it now.
    Life is entirely too short and fleeting to leave a list of unaccomplished desires that you were fully capable of accomplishing in the time you had.

    What a great post! I totally relate. I remember my college roommate asking me how I dated such hot guys!! LMAO. I was like what because I am a size 18 and you are 8. Mind you she had a crappy attitude. I played softball, bowled, and was on stage in theater. If I had let my weight define me for all these years, I would have NEVER done anything. Especially with being heavy my whole life! The world defines fat people. I just think some people are more accepting of the definition.
