    Texas Forum?

    I didn't feel like I would ever be here either but I feel better about myself every day. Never in my life have I had so much confidence. Feels good.

    5 month surgiversary today. Down 80lbs overall, but only lost 6 in the last month. I am such a slacker. But some little wins: Down to 33 minutes on my 5k 24 pants to 14 2x shirts to large Need to snack less. I am trying to overcome my new personal fear of losing too fast. I have definitely been self sabotaging. Reading everyone's posts today reminded me I need to track my food again to get back on track. I have 15lbs left to my first day of summer goal. I will make it!!!!!!!!!!!

    Grrrrrr! 0.2 again away from my next goal. I always get stuck on that last 0.2. Sooo screw it. I am celebrating now. 79.8lbs down!!!! Woohoo. Not quite as exciting as saying 80. Lol

    Why am I a Slowwwwwwwww loser?

    I think it's really funny that a bunch of fat people like myself who had to resort to surgery to lose the weight suddenly become experts on the exactly correct way to eat. If we were experts we wouldn't be fat@sses in the first place.

    Why am I a Slowwwwwwwww loser?

    I am almost afraid to admit I ate about 10 crackers with peanut butter over the course of this weekend in a PMS induced eating frenzy, for fear that someone will remember 8 months from now and cite it as my reason for not losing my last 3 pounds. I lost those three pounds this weekend, but those crackers will surely be the reason I can't get to goal. Te hee! Okay maybe it was 20 crackers, but who is counting. Oh wait, someone is!!!!!!!!!
  12. 7lbs down so far 22 to go. This is not going well! Adding kickboxing to my workout routine. Running is not enough.

    It's been excellent. I had some complications and was very well cared for. Dr. Hollis went as far as giving me his personal cell phone to keep in contact after hours. He is a very caring physician with great bedside manner. His pa Beth is nice but doesn't think outside the box well. She is however very responsive and enthusiastic.

    That's true it does help. Also measuring yourself and using a scale that shows body fat helps too. You will see inches and fat % go down even if the scale doesn't.

    The kernels that make a giant bag are only like 1/4 cup. That's it's ultimate volume in your stomach I would think. It's just puffed with air.
  21. I eat there quite a lot since its right by my office. I feel like the lettuce wraps don't have enough meat in them. The pot stickers are good too though. It's good to find a friend to share with too. Then you can order more variety. Although I have to say, calorie-wise, Cheesecake Factory is doing a good job.
