    sweetcurves3 got a reaction from Daniellejs30 in something apropros Oprah said once--re: "the easy way out"   
    With this particular surgery the grhelin is removed with the part of the stomach that is cut off. This helps us not to have hunger. I believe for the majority of us we still have cravings and head hunger but its up to us to make the right decision on what we eat. With that being said sometimes it is easier for us to make better decision because for some cravings change, taste buds change, if you try something you shouldn't have sometimes it doesn't sit well with you. Our stomachs are smaller so we cannot eat/drink as much as before.
    For exercise that's depends on the individual. Some have exercised before having surgery but there are some that do not like to exercise. Some will start to exercise because they are losing weight permanently and they feel like its not the same old diet and exercise routine that didn't work before or that you lost some weight but eventually gained back and possibly more.

    I put my treadmill in the living room so it is always in sight as a reminder. Plus even if I have my headphones on with music, seeing the tv on distracts me so instead of focusing on my minutes I focus on the tv and get so much more done without it feeling like an effort. I'm a tv junkie so just being in that familiar setting makes it easier for me to not feel like I've changed so much at once. Good luck getting on track. We all have these days.

    I started using myfitnesspal again. I found it helps me really see what I eat. Sometimes I will be a 550 calories and other days I will be at my norm of 1200. My NUT said I need to eat at scheduled times because if I only eat 550 calories my body goes back into starvation mode and I won't loose. At 1200 calories I feel like I am eating and drinking all day long so she has me eating higher calories for my Snacks. Seems to work cuz I have lost the weight I gained back.
    When I was big 4 lbs gain or loss was nothing, u couldn't notice even 10 lbs. Now that I'm a 9/10 4 lbs freaked me out thinking I was failing and that was just the beginning of the end to my new active life! I didn't have 85% of my gut cut out to fail!!! Back on track and realized that even if I do slip up I can still recover and carry on.

    8-19-13 I am 6 months post surgery. I posted regularly for a while but I retired June1st and I am just beginning to check out the posts again. I went to my surgeon today for 6 month follow-up. I am doing very well. My lab results were good except my cholesterol levels were up from my 3 month follow-up. My diabetes is much better controlled. My heaviest weight was 226 before I decided to check into surgery. It took me 3 years of yo-yo dieting to get down to 204. I am 5'3" and I was wearing 18w clothes. NOW, I am down to 133 lbs!!! I am almost there and Looking at what I need to do once I reach maintenance. It has been an awesome journey. I am so thankful and I do not mind being in front in pictures anymore.
