    Any tips on making scale start moving again ? I find that if I can lose a few lbs I usually don't put them back on .. It's just losing now?!

    Yeah it's weird - even though I'm not losing people still are telling me I'm looking thinner.. I think it's still shifting and adjusting ?! Time to get a little more serious . I'm bad about my water intake and I still like sweets and candy is a problem ( lol). If I gave up sweets and drank more water it might do the trick .

    One year anniversary today !!!! Wow what a year ! I'm down 83 lbs from surgery day last year - weight loss has basically slowed to a stop but I'm eating basically what I want // need to exercise and diet a little now to get to goal ! I worms be thrilled to get down 20lbs more - and I will do it !! Maybe by Halloween ? Looking great and not a lot of loose skin at all because I lost fairly slowly . Best of all I sleep better, look and feel a million times better !!

  9. This is tough but you cant worry about other peoples weight loss journeys.. just worry about you and he will probably be inspired by you at some point.
  10. I agree .. if you have a partner that does not support you doing something so drastic to improve your health and quality of your life what kind you do with that?! Isn't it sad that the person that should love and support you the most can't help you through this exciting but difficult time.

    Can you still eat in restaurants?

    I eat out almost everyday. I basically eat what I want ( but what I want has bchanged from before .. I avoid breads and heavy foods). I just cant eat very much and end up taking a to go box home ( which works out perfectly for lunch the next day I tend to eat too fast in restaurants and usually become miserable at some point. The food is good and at some points I am sad to not be able to try more / eat more.. but all in all Im very happy eating out

    I was sleeved 7/22/13... Officially down 51lbs from surgery date .. I too am having trouble motivating to get to the gym ( hate it)! But I need to tone so I don't have floppy skin so far I'm ok . I pretty much eat what I want - cant eat much and I try to get in protein or meat first. Thank God I enjoy soups because often they are my go to lunch - I can usually get soup down easier and feel satisfied. Everyone in my family says I still try to eat too fast which in turn makes me miserable after just a few bites.. I try to slow down but my mind is telling me this is delicious - your hungry -eat ?! Loving the sleeve - feel so much better and able to move around, get dressed, not feel so tired ))
