    1Cor2:9 got a reaction from Ms. Brightside in Veggies and VSG   
    I am a vegetarian. Therefore I get the most of my Protein from plant sources. So the idea that one has to eat the Protein first and then the vegetables is not true. If you make a dish with high protein grains and vegetables and add a meat to it that seems to me to be a protein powerhouse meal. I mean a 1/4 cup of roasted edamame has 12 grams of protein. Think about it. I am not trying to convince you to for go all meat, but if you were to pair a meat with a high protein you should be okay. I mean if I were to eat my protein first and then my vegetables I would have a problem. I purchased a high protein cookbook so that after surgery every meal would be plant based in high in protein.

    I want to say that I respect your stance on your decision. I applaud you for your willingness to be open about your struggles. It is certainly true that you have a right to think and feel as you wish about your surgery. The only thing I would counter with is what do you plan to do? Your surgery has been completed. VSG cannot be reversed. You like the rest of us are stuck, so to speak, with it for the rest of our lives. It does not seem to me a good idea to live in regret everyday for the rest of your life. In other words how are you going to turn this lemon into lemonade? It is my hope that this is something you would reflect on. Take care.

    As of my last weighing I am down 111lbs. Next Tuesday I will be eight months post op. My goal has always been to lose 150lbs by twelve months post op. That means I have a little over a four months to lose 39lbs. I think that I can make it. I understand based on what my dietitian has told me and what I read online that some bariatric patients do not even get to a normal BMI. I am not sure what the numbers are in that regards, but what does that have to do with me. I have lost 74% of my excess body weight. I have heard that once a bariatric patient losses 50% of their body weight they are a success. What that means is that I am already a success as far as they are concerned. I will be at 150lbs or close thereof by the end the year (I had surgery last December). If you have the same conviction about write me a comment.

    Well done and Congratulations! Awesome result!
    I am 1Ib away from being a sleeve success. I lost 60Ibs 5 months post op.
    Well, my revised goal is another 22Ibs down, and my stretch goal is 33Ibs away.
    I most certainly don't want to stop at my current weight.
    I want to keep losing until I reach my goal, then maintain it.
    My motivation is like yours, so I wish you all the best! We can do it

    I recently contacted my surgical team because I felt that maybe I needed to get back on track in some ways. I was told that I should feel like a success because I lost close to a 100lbs in six months. I have now, seven months out, loss more than 100lbs. She said that most people do not make that much progress in a year let alone six months. I was also informed that most people never make it to a healthy BMI after surgery. I do not know about that, but I know I ain't gonna be one of them. I did not have surgery just to be a smaller obese person. I wanted to be at 150lbs a year out. Perhaps I may not make that goal, but I am going to get to or as close to 150lbs as I can. I am not concerned about what must people do I am concerned about what this person is gonna do. Her words have rekindled the fire. I'm fighting back...

    1Cor2:9 got a reaction from walkermy in Can I Swim?   
    Yesterday I decided to go for a swim at the local public pool. I had gotten a new suit and towel and no on could tell me I was not ready. I look at the schedule for the pool to see when open pool times were. I knew it was a public pool, so I did not expect anything fancy. When I got into the building something dawned on me as I looked at those whom were in the pool- mostly children. Since I went during the day it makes sense that most of the people that would be at the pool would be children. Some were rowdy, but they all looked like there were having fun. I tried to swim far from them because I was not trying to get splashed or hit with a ball. Last thing I need is to "sit down" someone's child. After awhile I finally decided to swim on the deep end of the pool since less kids were over there. I had a fairly good time. I was able to do laps mostly without being bothered. After maybe 30 or 40 minutes pass the life guards yelled that open pool time was over. I got out the pool and some of the more Enlightened youth decided it would be a great time to make fun of my and my still somewhat large frame. I decided to ignore them again I don't want to have to "sit down" someone's child. But it made me think when we as obese people do nothing to improve ourselves we get shamed and when we attempt to do something about our plight we get ridiculed. We just can't win. Having said all that before somebody writes, "hey they were just kids" let me say few things. One, as a teacher I get made fun by students (children) on a regular basis. Two, they are just emulating behavior they have seen adults do. Three, no my feelings were not deeply hurt. Four, it is still wrong to ridicule someone who is just trying to swim like everyone else there. Also, I did have a sense of discomfort that it was primarily children. I would prefer to swim when most adults are present, but I am not when that would be because it appears that open swim times seem to occur when most people would at work. Fifth, I am mostly glad that I went. I always liked swimming. I know that I have worked hard and continue to give my weight loss journey its due diligence. That will not change just because some kids were rude. Will I go back? Yeah.

    This morning I thought I would weigh myself. I am currently 199.2lbs! I have not been under 200lbs since junior high at the latest or late elementary school at the earliest. You can see I have had that old fat for sometime. Last month was crazy because my weight was fluctuating. Then it started fall; however, I just felt that my body was resisting being under 200lbs. I mean it has been that way for roughly 20 years. But today I know that is not true. I am at the point in which I have to be even more careful. Not that I have given in, but I have had all kinds of crazy cravings. I have to be more mindful of the amount of carbs I consume. I want to lose an additional 50 lbs by the end of the year. That is only ten pounds a month. We gon' make it. Holla back if you just made it under 200lbs!
