    Wife Eating Habits Worsening

    Only you control what goes in your mouth. For the longest time I tried to blame my wife for my poor choices. Don't buy it and I wont eat it, if its not in the house I wont go out and get it. Would it be easier if it wasn't around, yes it would. What it all comes down to is will power. And will power is like a muscle the more you use it the stronger it gets...

    Gym (lifting) frustrations

    This is an interesting web site for those interested in strength training please take it with a grain of salt as it's run by a bunch of meat heads. There is some good information to be had. http://www.t-nation.com/ Here's one more and another of my favorite sites. http://bretcontreras.com/

    Mistakes women make at the gym

    I didn't mean to offend anyone, and he is a meat head, but if you read through the macho crap there is IMHO valid points about lifting heavy and building muscle, and that cardio is not the end all to working out.

    5 months out & struggling

    I like you to exercise your will power, the more you exercise it the stronger it gets. The first set I'd like you to do is the grocery store walk by. Any food you shouldn't eat just walk, by don't allow it in your basket, don't bring it in your home, If there is nothing bad in the house you cant make a bad choice. Also do sets of am I really hungry or eating out of boredom. This should get you started on the right track.

  10. Down 109 pounds in 10 months from 306 to 197, feeling and looking better than I have in years. I'm in control of everything in my life, good job, great family life, nice car and home, lots of friends. Why couldn't I control my weight without the sleeve? I feel like I cheated, my life is like a game of 9 pin no tap, I know you only got 9 pins but were gonna give ya a strike anyway. I guess its not so bad i just wish I could have done it on my own.

    Meal Time

    When I sit down to eat 6 oz of dense Protein I get a full feeling after about 3 or 4 bites. I'll stop for a few minutes and have another bite or two and I'm full again this will continue for 35 to 45 minutes. Is this to long? How long does it take you to eat? I'm not sure when this happened but, I seem to have stopped chewing my food to a mush before I swallow. So I tried chewing it to mush again, It doesn't seem to make a difference in how long it takes to eat but I do seem to get hungry sooner when I chew my food more. Any thoughts, I'm 9 months out and down about 106 lb cw 199 lb on my way to 180.

    Why would anyone want a surgery that requires follow up like this? "My aftercare with the surgeon is at weeks 1, 4, 5, 6, 7, 9, 11, 14 and as-needed along the way. " I work and have a life theres no way I could do this.

    My wife had me in training for years, she would by it and I would eat it. I'd ask her, tell her, beg her, don't by it and i wont eat it, her response have some self control... I won't go to the store at 8 or 9 at night to get it, but I will walk to the pantry. As it turns out she was right, and I've told her so. How bad do you want it, self control, willpower, it like a muscle the more you use it the stronger it gets. I have weak moments, my goal is to make better choices, stop mindless eating, if I'm that hungry eat something good. Each moment, each hour, each day, week, month... Takem one at a time be strong.
