    hubbywife got a reaction from dp47 in Alcohol and Weightloss   
    Wow these threads crack me up. I feel like I am back in high school reading stuff that people post. I havent even had surgery yet but joined this site to see how others adapt and succeed. Instead I see so much negativity and bullying. These are the same people I tell my 21 yr old daughter to avoid. But I think I am going to take a break and find a more positive site as well. I understand that these are people opinions and every one has one but we are also adults and should treat one another as such. I'm really hoping that these are trolls that I am referring to because if they aren't, then there are a lot of unhappy people on this site!

    hubbywife reacted to reree6898 in A Year Already....My Story (w/Pictures)   
    Today marks one year since I had my sleeve done. This year has really just gone by so quickly and my life has changed so much in the last year. A year ago today I was 319 lbs and wearing a size 26/28 in pants. I didn't have any real medical issues yet but I knew it was just a matter of time before they would start. I was getting to be on the border of high blood pressure and I knew that I would also likely end up diabetic within a few years if things didn't change. My joints were hurting all the time and my back would spasm with pain. I had thought about having surgery for a long time but prior insurance wouldn't cover it and I had no way to pay out of pocket for it. I changed jobs a few years ago and found that it would be covered finally. I saw my surgeon for the first time in July of 2015 and was sleeved September 28th, 2015.
    In this year I have lost 157lbs and as of this morning weigh 162lbs and wear a size 10/12!!!! I have had many other changes and challenges this year that have tried to sabotage my success but through it all I have had to keep reminding myself that I have to do this for me and that I have to keep doing what I know is right and will carry me through and keep me healthy.
    My stats are as follows:
    Heaviest weight ever: 376lbs
    Surgery weight: 319lbs
    Current weight: 162lbs

    hubbywife reacted to LipstickLady in It absolutely makes NO freaking sense to me... **MY RANT**   
    You put in the time.
    You put in the money.

    You go to all the appointments and you jump through all the hoops.
    You do the pre-op diet.

    You have the surgery.

    You cared enough about yourself to make the commitment to WLS and you physically and permanently alter your body...


    And then you get mad because someone tells you not to eat the d@mn taco? Not to drink alcohol or soda 2.783 days after surgery? To put down the freaking pizza'? To stop eating bread/rice/pasta/bananas/hoagies/20oz steaks TEMPORARILY while your body heals and you get to your goal weight? To actually stick to YOUR doctor's plan?

    Even better, you get mad when they only do so AFTER you ASKED????

    SERIOUSLY PEOPLE?

    Yes. I'd guess most of us have head hunger and cravings. I'd guess most of us had a nibble or sip of something off plan. I've no doubt that most of us were not 100% compliant 100% of the time. But I'd also guess that those of us who have done this, gotten to goal weight and stayed there have been compliant the majority of the time. I'd also guess that many of us who have been successful would appreciate a swift kick in the rear if/when we ask a question I bet we already know the answer to.

    It's not rocket science and this isn't Romper Room. Make good choices, stick to your doctor's orders or don't, but don't get mad if you fail to get the results you want when you refuse to do what you are supposed to do. And don't get mad when someone tells you that what you are putting in your mouth isn't the best idea in the world even though you want it right now.

    Value yourself more than that. Seriously.

    It has been almost 10 months since I had the sleeved and I am down 171 pounds 14 sizes down and total body loss 127 inches. Anything is possible if you put your mind to it and follow the program. The sleeve is not going to do all of the work for you but if you work for it you can achieve your desired results. Wish I would have done this 10 years ago.

    hubbywife reacted to SuperSparkly72 in Pop Rocks and Coke . . . .   
    So, I was reading another thread this morning on alcohol - a charming topic that has since delightfully devolved into communion wine in dixie cups - when someone brought up drinking coke with pop rocks and I nearly spit my Protein Shake all over my computer screen. This is literally the conversation I had with my husband last night:
    Hubby: Hey, I found the pop rocks you gave me for Christmas. Can I still cash them in? (22 years of marriage and always looking for new romantic . . . adventures. Look it up.)
    Me: No. You know I don’t eat sugar anymore. I’m pretty sure I warned you that you had to use them before I had my surgery in January.
    Hubby: Dang. It was a three pack too. Are you sure I can’t cash them in anyway? Just without the pop rocks?
    Me: It’s not as much fun without the pop rocks.
    Hubby: sad puppy face
    Me: Fine. If you can find sugar free pop rocks, we’ll talk.
    Hubby: (not even FIVE MINUTES later) Good news! Amazon sells sugar-free pop rocks . . . in a 24 pack!
    Don’t worry. I would never subject my delicate pouch to pop rocks, even sugar-free. Poor Hubby got his hopes up for nothing. Stupid Amazon. Stupid pop rocks. Now I want a coke. Or communion wine in a dixie cup. Instead, I’ll drink my old lady juice: Water with added Fiber and Miralax. 125#s down today! I love my pouch!

    At my heaviest weight I was 425lbs. Walking up one flight of stairs was an act of God. I swear all the time and was out of breath more times than not. I really thought that after 30 years of battling my weight that I would die just like that.
    On December 3, 2014, I had RNY gastric bypass and what an amazing journey it's been. I'm down over 250lbs from my heaviest weight and 163 since my surgery.
    I can walk, breathe, run and live freely. I always felt trapped in my body and now I feel like I can do anything! On November 6th I'm running the NYC Marathon and for a woman who needed prayer to walk up one flight it's a testament to how this tool can work if you really work it!
    Every day is a blessing!
