    Weight-loss funnies

    This is soo me😂
  2. I totally agree. Though I am not a compulsive eater I do feel that extra support is a must for me. I do an online weight management program for the accountability.
  3. Yes, keeping up with the nutritional aspect of VSG is as if not more important as food intake and exercise. All three we have to stay diligent about. thank you for mentioning this @shrinkingpamela
  4. I find that I have to keep this thing in front of me. I am 2.5 years out and recently gained 8-10 of my 115 loss back due to medication change etc. this topic was a reminder of the little things that can cause you to gain. I first started gaining weight when I started working out with a personal trainer about 4 months ago I quickly gained 5 pounds and then a change in my medication led to the additional gain. I am the type that steps on the scale every morning and every evening so I know my body well. For others this is not a good practice but for me it keeps me accountable and I can quickly see when things are going to the left. Side note love the way the body looks from the workout so not upset in that area lol.

    What can possibly go wrong?

    I’m so sorry that you are going through such a crappy time. Can I ask how far out are you?

    1 year out

    I am 21 months out and have settled down to an eating plan that feels good to me. There are thing I will more than likely never eat again and somethings that I eat in moderation. I always keep protein in my frig and/or pantry. I'm not driven by numbers but clothes size. I have lost between 113-115 and it's comfortable for me to maintain. I was fortunate to have a surgeon and a medical team that never mentioned a target number.

    The reason I don't use a straw is because I tend to drink to much and fill up on liquid instead of my meal when I go out. That's the only time I actually have a straw around lol.

    Chicken wings and worry

    I started seeing a therapist waaaaay before I even thought about have surgery to deal with changes that come with menopause and empty nest issues. It really has helped me through this process as well.

    Chicken wings and worry

    I can eat anything as well but choose not to, that would defeat the reason for this 18 month journey. This is just a tool for the physical the mental needs work as well.

    Sharing with coworkers??

    It's been 18 months and no one in my office knew or knows. They are just amazed at how focused I have been on loosing weight. Not their business. Shared with my daughters, mom. siblings and their kids because we are an extemely close family and without their support not sure I would have been as successful.
  14. Yep that's always nice lol
  15. I fly this coming Monday for the first time since needing a seatbelt extender. Down 114 pounds since then. I could never understand how people packed for a week in a small bag but I did it lol smaller clothes = less space lol. Whodda thunk it
