    How do you view overweight people now that your thin?

    I've always been attracted more to athletic guys... *shrugs* I just never actually dated them - just had fun.

    My horrible experience at a restaurant.

    I have the right to complain about a BUSINESS. You obviously have a lot of pent up anger. There's medicine for that. @@Aggiemae I have extra if you need some. My don't make manda mad pills come doubled for incase I need to take two instead of one.
  4. I'm either freezing like Jack frost kissed my hands and nose or I'm sweatin' like I just got out of the sauna... which usually happens after I eat something hot (not spicy) just hot... I put my heater on and aim it under my desk to make it warm up everything... and its burning my leg, but if I move it - I'm right back to freezing! I'm so not looking forward to delivering pizzas tonight.... I just wanna wrap myself in a blanket with holes for my hands and sit on the couch, but then I'll get hot and yeah.

    I'm calling BS

    I haven't been feelin' it until recently, and I'm just over 6 months out now but I gotta go out hunting It is my birthday afterall...
  8. Everyone else has said pretty much what I would in some context or another... so I'm just gonna offer a hug and hope that your week goes better. I know how you feel about the F - I'm rather upset with myself too atm - I missed the first test and assignment because I wasn't able to purchase my book and teacher doesn't have make ups. I made A's and Bs on my other three assignments and Bs on the last three tests... and have walked away with a 68 because of the missed test and assignment hoping I can fix it, somehow...

    Y'all! I just bought myself an Instant Pot!

    I'm getting impatient for my birthday and Christmas! I hope I get one and just because Mommy says we'll see does not mean yes... actually its usually a "no, I just don't want to tell you no" but I can be optimistic! and get it myself if I don't get it I'm keeping tabs on this post for all the recipes to try out!

    Salt it up!

    as far as I know my BP is still normal - when I'd get BP done at Drs. they'd always do it 2 or three times thinkin' the machine was broke cause they'd expect me to have high BP and it was always normal or one CNA told me it was the BP of a teenager... maybe its just the need for stronger flavor, I hope so...

    Salt it up!

    I'm not craving salt or anything like that... but I've noticed lately I've been adding a dash or two of salt to my food lately. Before surgery I very rarely even USED the salt shaker when eating. Just wondering if anyone else noticed this... I've always said salt is supposed to bring out the flavor of things more, but over doing it is just nasty. So, I'd put a lil in when cooking, but rarely when I sat down to eat. And now its like everything needs a lil salt...
  12. @@summerset you know... she was talking about what works for her, right? she NEVER said it would work for everyone. Perhaps quit reading into it so hard that you think she's telling YOU or anyone else what to do because she's not. She is stating what worked for her or doesn't and how HER body reacts to various things. I've noticed that my body works the same way - if I eat to many bad carbs ie. junk food, Pasta, white flour stuff, I quit losing and gain... popcorn is still off my list for a while since I'm totally addicted to it. Now that I'm pushing myself to get back on track, I've started losing again. Stuffed pepper Soup, anyone? I have tons left over - made with turkey ground meat and peppers with quinoa...

    This may sound kinda babyish, but I don't care! My mommy said she'd see about getting me one for my birthday/Christmas present!!!
  14. When I went for my first consultation (July 2015) - they suggested I be unfilled because my surgery would probably be sometime in October or November of 2015. So, I went right away and got unfilled... I ended up not getting approved and had to resubmit. By January I had gained 20lbs cause I ate everything I had not been able to eat previously because I would get sick if I ate it. kinda had one long last supper, I guess you could say. I went in for my appointment in January and pretty much demanded that I get refilled, so I wouldn't gain anymore weight and that I didn't care if I started getting sick again. The nurse that was doing the refills didn't want to refill me because she thought I was doing it for the wrong reasons. I finally convinced her that it was because I did NOT want to gain anymore weight. after the fill - I lost about 25lbs before surgery - I was at 250ish for the consultation - 270 after the regain, and 249 on day of surgery... I'm at 225 right now, and stuck because I quit caring... Recently though I'm trying to take back control of my life and get back to doing what needs to be done instead of letting my roommate control it. I bought a new car and starting working at my second job again. I'm trying to get back on track with my eating habits, but its a mind over matter thing for me and I've never been much good at telling myself no I can't have that, but I'm trying. I noticed I hang out on here more when I know I'm getting off it. I messed up last night after being on track all day and again this morning. I'm restarting again at lunch with chicken salad and a Protein drink for mid afternoon and sugar free Jello. I have to remember to eat before I go to work at night as that is when I usually fall down. Yes, I tend to ramble - I'm sorry...
