    My First Plateau

    I met with a trainer. He said to do cardio for at least 30 mins - do more than that if you really want results. Strength training is also important. Watch the calories too! I've been in a plateau since end of may. Let me tell ya, I'm frustrated. I'm trying to turn a new leaf. To be stronger, not cheat, and most of all more active. I got here, 50 lbs less and I know I don't want to revert back. I know this will pass, and I will be thinner in the process! Hang in there

    Argh, the yummy goodness is back! My kid brought one home...!!!!!!!! But I'm strong. I walked out of the room and grabbed a Water bottle. I'm ok, I'm ok...!!!!!! This is huge for me. And no regrets.

    Yup, they are pure evil locked into a plastic bag with a shelf life of at least a hundred years! I knew when I saw it I had to stay away, because it'd would be a downward spiral.

    Congrats!!! Awesome job!!!
  6. Sorry you're going through this. I know it's hard. For the little bit of time Ive cheated, I actually am finding that I feel yucky. It's like I feel better when I eat better. When you go for whatever junk food, maybe try to drink a protein shake before you do. Then at least you won't be as hungry. I too have rid my closet of fat clothes. I've bought stuff that I want to fit into. Something to look forward too. I've hit a plateau, I've been the same for nearly 3 mos. it's very frustrating. Good luck to you. Try to search within yourself why you did the WLS, maybe it will give you that little nudge to go in the right direction. My doc told me, if you're having problems, go back to the post op diet and slowly go to where you are. Sometimes that helps. Hang in there

    Food Monitors

    Wow good for you. I doubt I could do that. I've changed over the years. I have become much quieter and don't say what I feel.

    Friends and sabatoge

    Hi and thank you you to all. I pretty much feel the same way, I guess I'm in a slump. And hearing positive comments from family would be nice. I do realize that some people are more self absorbed than others, or just don't even notice anything. And as for my friend's breakfast, I will have to continue to be strong. It's hard sometimes. And those are the times I walk into a different room so I don't loose my strength. Thanks again all.

    Lying About LapBand

    MandaMom pretty much summed it up perfectly for me. Only my family and a very select few. And I regret telling the select few. One was banded, and when she hit goal, she went out of control. She has attempted to sabotage me with high calorie drinks and makes snide remarks about "I hit goal and I can have this now". When really she can't. Then she complains she's gained. I dislike her so much now, and feel shed spill the beans on my WLS. It also doesn't help that I have hit a plateau. I'm stuck and frustrated. But I'm doing things to loose more. So, for me to tell anyone else, that would be a no. Another person I told was my boss. She is a tiny little thing, and clearly doesn't understand. In fact, she denied my time off. It went to her boss and he approved it. I have my regrets telling people outside my family at home. People are too cruel, I'm fighting my demons now, I don't need others to give me crap while I go through this process.

    Why no fruits?

    Besides healing from surgery, fruit is a complex carb. Yes, it's good for you, but it's a carb. Eat more protein and veggies.
  11. NAS protein whey at Walmart, chocolate dissolves nicely and it's the cheapest

    Totally Discouraged :(

    I completely understand whwre you are. I was banded in nov, and have lost only about 50ish lbs. part was me, and part was diet, the huge part is exercise. I just met with a trainer and he said to push walking to at least 30 mins, along with doing strength training. Gotta get those ol bones movin. I know it's hard, trust me. But I'm gonna try. I've been stuck at my current weight since before June. Prior to that everything was fine. The trainer said for me, my body is used to what I'm doing, and to change it - work it. Also, if you have t got a fill, DO IT ! It was until my 3-4 one I actually do not feel hungry. So I'm not giving up, I'm going to try to push myself more, and the trainer said I'd get results. Since losing what I've lost, I'm feeling sooooooooooo much better. I don't want to revert back. Also, if you' e got the hungries, try to drink a Protein shake. It will take that edge off from going into the evil carbs. Hope this helps. Good luck
  13. Look at the protein number, you want one which is high in protein and low in carbs. I purchase EAS whey at Walmart, it's cheaper there. Slim fast has too many carbs. Mix with water only. Milk has too many carbs. You'll see results and won't be hungry. Good luck
