    joy59 got a reaction from SBell35 in Self Sabotage   
    SBell I understand as I am going through almost the same. I feel that I am at times sabotaging my own weight loss so I won't get the surgery . The Dr gave me a goal of 261 I was 287. I reached 261 in about 3 weeks I received my surgery date September 9th (soonest insurance would cover) . Now I find myself going back to poor food choices. I have been trying to figure out what it is about and for me I believe I am very afraid I won't succeed even with wls and this is a way of making sure it won't happen. So I am resetting my negative thoughts with positive. I started back to the gym and do two meals of Protein Shake and have started using the fitness pal again. We will succeed one day at a time and we know that because we are strong women who have many things for others and now we will do this for ourselves. All the best to you.

    No question about it people do treat people differently even women do the same. But I also wonder if some of that is the increased confidence that can come from losing weight and feeling better on the inside that can make one more approachable. Just a thought.

    Wow that is fantastic! Makes me feel a little easier. I must admit I can't help but smile all the time, even though it is a ways off reading everyone's posts it seems to go fast.
