    AussieSam got a reaction from missruthy in Tell me your secret   
    Where was that thread that dealt with the issue it was about people complaining about losing a great amount of weight fast. I think losing too fast is a recipe for disaster as the chances of regain in the future would be very high. Taking it slow adapting good eating habits and exercise are the key to long term success.

    I did Atkins about ten years ago and lost 80 pounds in ten months but stopped it and gained 100 in 5 months.

    Complex are very important if you exercise a lot as you need them for fuel. Protein helps repair the muscles and stos the body from breaking down muscle. Stay away from sugary carbs and remember it's ok to be on a low carb diet but bad to be on a no carb diet.

    First post is always the hardest but after that is easy. I've learned that the more you post the more you might benefit others but most of all you benefit yourself as it keeps your motivation high.

    AussieSam got a reaction from CanyonBaby in Marriage and relationships after Weight Loss Surgery   
    My marriage is just as it was before my wls I think one of my secrets was to do it slow and not expecting to lose 250 lbs overnight. I put in my mind that I will do it within 5 to 10 years and because of the slowness it doesn't have all the hormonal issues with very fast weight loss.

    I sometimes feel like a failure cause after 6 years I still havnt got to goal weight. But I hope to do it within the next four years. I guess slow is good and why be in a hurry.

    Welcome abroad you will find your journey to be very interesting and challenging, you will have your ups and downs, good times and bad, remember the surgery only meets you half way the rest is in your mind. There will be times you can hardly eat and there will be times you wonder how you ate so much. You will get to the weight you want only if you really want it bad enough. Good luck.

    Sometimes it can be the impact your feet moving and hitting the ground with the weight impact on the back. Try the cross trainer as you can get the same workout without the impact.

    Sometimes our bodies just need that little bit extra it's ok from time to time. Don't feel bad when it happens always remember you got the rest of your life to lose the weight not a limited time like we have conditioned our minds to think.

    I agree that weight loss happens in the kitchen not the gym. I also like to add in the mind also to that statement.
