    Any Maine Sleevers?

    Just thought I would drop in. Almost two years out..have gained a few pounds mostly from not eating the right things. Knees prevent me from walking too much but that is no excuse. Summer is great because I can get out and kayak. Mainexplorer you must have had your surgery by now and I hope it was a succes for you. I had mine done at EMMC in Bangor with Dr. St Jean

    Anyone not tell family?

    well there ya go MIMama...if you have to guilt them into to visiting you don't "owe" them the info. The only reason I did tell my brother and sisters was because surgery is a major thing. If anything were to happen during it I wanted them to be informed.

    Getting food stuck?

    It has happened a few times. Always when I ate too fast or too much

    Anyone not tell family?

    tough decision..DH's family has shown they are judgmental. Most of my immediate family does know I had wls.I have not told my mother .. given her age and she tends to worry about me..If the people I haven't told do find out about my wls..I will just say it doesn't concern them if they make comments around them. It will get harder on you avoiding them..Just go and relax..no bodies business but yours..nice that your DH is concerned about your feelings

    why are you scared of it?..I do find I have to chew chew chew it...takes longer to eat..but I really like rice..brown rice is more difficult because of the hulls...
  10. my doc said no lifting more than 5 pounds for 4 weeks..not sure what type of surgery or the insicions you will have..I am surprised you doc hasn't given you a limit.

    rant, sorry

    I agree with Laura..upper body workouts..I have bad knees so using them in my workout is out of the question..Heart goes out to you darlin'. My gym has a recumbent eliptical bike.I use for a arm cardio workout. the Y has a "bike" that uses just your arms for cardio. other than that if your doc says ok..weight lifting with light weights lots of reps for cardio..your phys ed or gym coach could help you with some info..good luck...

    Making my workout more interesting/challenging

    wow I am impressed with your Motivation. You mentioned weight machines....do you do free weights?

    Need motivation

    the sleeve surgery is a slower weightloss. Just by its nature. I am 15months out. I have "only" lost 86 poiunds. I have been fighting 5 pounds I gained the last couple of months. I know it is eating wrong and not being more active. By the time we all got to this point we have tried so much and have been told or read everyting there was about losing weight. It all comes down to finding it within ourselves. I am a cookieaholic,,,love crunchy buttery cookies but I know I can have a few and that is it.Even with the surgey there is no magic bullet. We all know people who have had this surgey and the bi-pass and have gained the weight back. I wish you both lots of motivation and get out there and move. I know how hard it is I have terrible knees and am working out some exercises/routines that do not involve pressure on the knees.. As for making it interesting I say add the spices but find something other than food as first and foremost in our minds.
  14. I am not 3yrs out..will have my one year check up next week..do you have regrets? I do have moments where I wish I could eat more than one or two peices of kfc..but I know the volume and fat would not be so good..I cook things I think I want end up having one peice and then throwing the rest away. wish I could drink like I use to but I know that was what got me messed up in the first place....but I know how you feel..

    expected weight loss by group

    yup this is me as well but I will not be discouraged. I have still lost more than I ever had and have kept it off. approx 90 since my surgery a year ago. I know I need to watch more closely what I eat and move more.. I like a challenge. You are doing great and will have some plateaus but it is still up to you. We knew even with the surgery it would still be work. no magic bullet..
