  1. I finally made it to Onederland! I woke up and hopped on the scale and it's 199. So excited! Only 49 more pounds to go until I hit my second goal!

    I need help/a kick in the pants

    Everyone in the house is sleeved. We've talked to her about it but she just keeps buying it. Ice cream, chips, kettle corn, cookie dough, cake, and crackers. Crazy amounts of bread that we will never eat. When it's not in the house I don't go searching for it but it makes it damn hard sometimes. She has lost an amazing amount of weight, more in fact than I have. She started at a much higher weight than everyone in the house and so we assumed that without even trying she would have a significant loss. We have asked her a million times not to bring it in, we have all explained that its hard on the others when one person gets derailed and brings it in. I've gone so far as to throw it away when she's not home or tell her she has to take it with her. Sometimes I feel like it was all for nothing. I wanted to be healthy, I wanted to live my life and be happy. I am so much better now than I was before but I still have so much work to do. I'm not sure why it has to be this way when we all decided this was what we needed to do to be healthy. I knew it would be hard, I knew that I would have to make substantial changes. It just drives me crazy that we can't all be on the same page together. However I will toughen up, and I will keep working, see a NUT, and adjust my diet accordingly.

    They told me 60g protein was goal, 80 for men. They said get the protein, drink the Water, take it easy on the carbs, and exercise. That's what I know. 600-800 calories a day but they didn't say if that was with or without exercise.

  6. Hey y'all, I hate that I even have to write this down. I had my surgery in June, it's been amazingly successful for me. I'm so close to onederland, I'm currently sitting at 205lbs. and I just want to get to 199 and from there 150-160. I'm more focused on how I feel than any particular number. However, I apparently need some additional motivation, or butt kicking, or something. I can't stop eating crap food. I have no idea why. I know what I'm supposed to do. I know that it's AT LEAST 60g Protein and 64oz of Water. I know I'm supposed to limit carbs. When I'm eating well I log everything, when I'm eating poorly I don't log anything. As if not logging it somehow means it didn't happen. I go to the gym 5 days a week for 10,000 steps and I weight train twice a week with a trainer. Most of the time I start the week well. Protein shake for Breakfast, Salmon for lunch, and a healthy crockpot meal for dinner. Then someone says lets get Starbucks, or brings home chips, and the other day I bought all this healthy food and then there was nowhere to put it because there was a tub of ice cream in the fridge. If it's in the house I'm eating it. It's terrible. Every adult in the house is sleeved and my intentions are so good but my will power is not. I've asked them not to bring the stuff home but they don't stop. I don't actively buy junk when I shop. I don't go looking for it but I feel like the surgery and all the money we paid will be wasted if I can't get my eating under control. I also had my surgery in Mexico so I didn't get great information on how much to eat, with the working out I've been trying to stay around 800 calories. Could someone please tell me if that is enough? It seems that when I eat a little bit more I seem to lose better. Anyways, I would love to hear from you guys even if it's just to tell me to quit being a baby and making excuses. I want this to be successful, I don't want to gain the weight back.
  7. Thanks! I need to get real about my eating habits again but I live in the house of junk food and it can be really hard. I'd like to lose about 60 more lbs. That would put me in the 150 range.

    VSG In Tijuana, Mexico ANYONE?!

    Going to Mexico was the best decision I've ever made. I had the surgery in June with Dr. Garcia. My mom went three weeks later, and my aunt went three weeks after that. I've lost 65lbs. My mom has lost 70, and my aunt who was larger than all of us refuses to get on the scale but her weight loss was substantial. I met several people the day of surgery and I still talk to all of them, but no one went with me and I was perfectly comfortable. Those are pictures of Hospital CER, where my surgery was done
  9. c I still have a lot of work to do but I feel so much better.

    people not educating themselves

    I had surgery in Mexico and I don't regret it for a second. I got all the information on the surgery itself but not a lot about post up care etc. I'm always looking for information that other people have because it helps me too. I've been eating terribly lately so I'm on a mission to reset my health and my mind. The surgery has still been very successful for me I just want to maximize. So with that is a question for all of you. How many calories a day are you eating? I am 5'8, currently 208lbs. I work out with a personal trainer for weight training two days a week and do 10k steps a day or cardio on the other days. Could someone steer me in the right direction? Thanks!
  11. Just as a side note, I came home from surgery and I was starving. I would try to eat and it wouldn't go away. It was stomach acid. I take omeprazole and now I don't have any fake hunger pains. Be sure your hunger is really hunger and not stomach acid.

    I just started seeing someone for the first time in four years. My best friend introduced us and luckily she told him everything. He is so great and very understanding. Zero judgement, plus if someone judges us for this they are obviously not someone we should be seeing.
