    Stella S got a reaction from mi75 in Why the same advice over and over?   
    I fall into the basics work to trim my regain - Water not wine, cheese not with a cracker. When I focus on water and protien I drop the weight. Removing over 30 carb works. Admiring those who do not have to continue the work!

    KC that is a lot of food intolerance - maybe get a second opinion?? Also what about a different support group? Depending on your area you mAay be able to join another or an activity group. On line exercise - something to promote dopamine production. You have gone through a lot of changes - change is tough Maybe counseling, I hear every day that these are uncertain times! If you look at the national group takeoff pounds sensibly - TOPS they have categories for WLS and maintainers for those at goal. You are not alone. Best

    When reality sounds like negativity to me it’s time to change. Whether we want to call to reality check or something else it’s a key to go back to what works. Stop drinking choose your favorite healthy foods! It’s really great to hear the positive stories and the community. For many of us it is an every day or more days and not choice. It’s not that the road isn’t hard it’s that it can be both hard and good. ☮️

    Coming up on two months but I have not gone to the clinic or the office with any sense of regularity. Spending time at home working more hours than I would have ever imagined. Healthwise I think I’m doing OK sure could use a little bit more sleep! Notice my cardio is down and have been correcting that the last week or so. Trying to eat what is in my house to gain some additional room seems like there is food here from the last couple years- The things to purchased perhaps try or somehow just end up in your house! This is one of life‘s great mysteries along with disappearing socks?

    Stella S got a reaction from JessLess in Your Dr.'s goal weight/BMI for you?   
    The BMI calculator is not really a scale that measures health. Seems to me if doctors measure their success by getting others out of the morbidly obese area their success is higher. I encourage you to chart your own course and be your own judge!

    Stella S got a reaction from FatboySkin in Body Lift Surgeon Recommendations?   
    None of this is cheap - The person I utilized had a 4 day minimum - I had 5 days at 6 hours at 750.00. For a city with a minimum wage is $15 an hour I really thought this was good. I paid under the table and direct - LPN Also my spouse was with me during the night It was really really really really marvelous for him not to have some of the care responsibilities... as I stated I wish I would’ve done this for my two previous procedures. The Private Duty picked me up from the hospital brought me home and got me situated, Plus helped me with bathing and brought me to a follow up appointment The days were not consecutive.
