    OK. I have a good problem... I have an interview scheduled - and absolutely NO clothes that fit! I haven't worn "work" clothes since May because I was working at the restaurant on the Cape!
    So, gladiators. - send prayers for successful suit shopping. And, more important, fingers crossed for a great interview.

    I'm so happy I found this group again. In the beginning, this group was my absolute rock. I'm doing well. Off most of my meds, not being treated for Diabetes at all any more. Since I first went to my surgeon, I've lost 107 pounds. Now, I lose very slowly, but I am totally okay with that. I went to the doctor, well, his PA, and she told me I had to stop losing so fast. Imagine that. Things have been hard here as my neighbor's 8-year-old daughter was raped and murdered by another neighbor, a 15-year-old boy. I ate too much at first, but my food of choice was blueberries! People were talking about yogurt and fruit. That's absolutely my favorite food. I have it for Breakfast every single day. I love FAGE 2%. I gave up the non-fat because i realized I needed to be eating more fat. Every single day I wake up amazed that I can get out bed. I look at my size 10 pants and am sure that I cannot possibly fit into those tiny things. I've learned how to shop for clothes, though I have to admit it was very traumatic at first. My arthritis remains bad, but I go to physical therapy three times a week, and my legs are getting better. Everyday I am totally grateful that I had my surgery and that I have totally hung in there for almost ten months now. I won't lose this group again. I hope everyone is doing well. With love, WG.

    I've recently been investigating overeaters anonymous because of the head being in control of the stomach. I'm wanting to get real and break with my food addiction. Its been an interesting read. My band was removed due to slip and GERD. I'm working on bypass. This is a disease that must be treated inside and out!

    congratulations I have had the issue of a few specific people telling me "tell me you are done loosing, you need to stop" This Monday I was just on my PMS horse and ran her butt over! I smiled and said "I am so glad you are my doctor and have made this decision for me" she said " you know what I mean".......I smiled and said "no, I don't. I am under a doctors supervision, I am fine, if I loose more it is fine, and if I don't it is fine, but it will still not be any of your business!"
    I hardly know this woman!!
    thank you for the vent

    Thank you, thank you!!
    Did a little shopping today, my step daughter (to be), Brett and I are going to be starting a new workout class, so I needed some new workout clothes. When I pulled it off the shelf I was thinking it looked too small. My 9yr old says "it looks too big Mom." Well, it fit just right! Here's a pic...
    Shoot, looks like they might show up sideways....
    Guess they aren't sideways, LoL!

    I get it. We don't walk around with a mirror all day long so I don't get why people need to talk about it all the time. And yes it is true some people will treat you different.
    I am struggling with the comments about how little I am and " what size" are you now? and are you going to stop because you need to stop, and are those kids pants..... sign I love my new body but others are going to take a while to adjust I suppose.

    This is from yesterday morning, it's a post I shared on the FB page that I admin, this was before my odd day at the Water park LOL



    I did it! I did it! I did it!!!
    I have been stuck at 138.4 for 20 days....I really wasn't too upset because that was already past surgeons goal of 140 but I was wanting to at least ONCE see my goal on the scale of 137.
    Yesterday I finally lost half a pound after 20 days and was 137.9 I was all kinds of happy with that!!!
    THEN.....
    This morning I woke up to 135.7!!! I moved the scale all over the bathroom to make sure it was flat and every time it was the same!! ???????????????????????? yay ????????????????????????????????
    Yesterday I truthfully rested and then slept more than I have slept in months last night. Maybe my body just needed a break ????????

    So I have never really cared and always wore whatever I wanted, and sometimes that was even a bikini. At my heaviest I never really got any comments, I'm sure people stared or looked but I never noticed, mostly because I just don't care.
    But I had an odd experience yesterday at the Water park with my boyfriend. He and I have both lost over 100 pounds each, he did not have surgery so he doesn't have any scars but still has the skin and stretch marks. I was in a bikini and he was in regular swim trunks, he was going to wear a shirt and I asked "why?!" I forget not everyone is as carefree as me.
    I am used to little kids saying "hey your tummy looks funny" or "hey your tummy looks like my mommies", but I am not used to adults saying anything.
    1st encounter we were standing in line and a very young woman (a little socially awkward) said "hey what happened to your stomach, I was confused looked down and laughed because I forget I don't look like everyone else. Then I told her I lost over 100 pounds. She smiled and said "oh I thought were going to say you had like 8 kids" hahaha no kids yet. (Her mom was very heavy set and I could tell she was embarrassed, I smiled and continued dance around to the music)
    The second encounter was a bit more interesting. My boyfriend and I were sitting having a Water and Protein bar break, and I was ready to go ride more slides, he was taking longer and laughing at me because I kept dancing in front of him singing " I'm ready I'm ready" "come on slow poke" when a man walked over to us as we were walking towards him and said "you guys used to be heavy set? I said yes, he said "I just wanted to tell you, you both look really amazing" I smiled and really didn't know what to say.......it was odd but also must have taken guts come up to someone and say that.
    Both encounters had me a little perplexed but still proud of my journey and have no plans of hiding my body any time soon!! Hahaha

    I had surgery almost 10 months ago, October 14, 2014. I hit my goal weight this weekend August 1,2015 (darn ticker won't update)
    As far as exercise, I have always just walked. Once I could walk more I did. then after I was much closer to goal I started running. I put most my focus on diet and the weight just came off. Protein first ALWAYS, and keep up on hydration. Once the eating and hydration is good, bump up the exercise but don't go too crazy, you will have plenty of time for that

    Hit and passed doctor's goal of 110, went on maintenance and promptly gain 4 pounds. Backing off that maintenance a bit, see what happens. Hope everyone is doing well.
