    Am I the only one?

    I'm using a mobile device and can clearly the thread it's in. Sent from my SM-N950U using BariatricPal mobile app

    Brief update.

    @Frustr8 - I don't want to hijack this thread or take away from @Glen Dean's accomplishments. No one should be put down for offering insight or advice and I'm sorry that happened to you. I hope it does not deter you from offering support in the future. I would also like to thank you for trying to respect the boundaries. However, and with respect, I can't help myself from mentioning that you are making this statement from inside the boundaries you are trying to respect. This is still the Guys room. Just my .02, JC

    Who will like me skinny??

    I'd guess that your entire dating landscape will change. By that I mean you are going to change, your confidence will change, your tolerance for BS with change, you will find a voice you didn't know you had. In other words, you may want to begin to ask yourself, not who will like me, but who will deserve me. Just my .02

    @Matt Z Thank you. My point exactly. I don't expect anything to change, but It feels good to vent.

    Am I the only one?

    Fair point well made. However, I think it's more about respecting boundaries. I respect theirs. I don't care who actually reads my posts, but when I post in the guys room it's because I'm looking for the Male perspective or comradeory. Otherwise I'd post it in the appropriate general forum. Thanks for your comments and opinion. Sent from my SM-N950U using BariatricPal mobile app

    Am I the only one?

    Am I the only one that gets annoyed by the number of women that post in the Guys' Room? Please don't get me wrong, I have the utmost respect for women and consider them peers and equals. I guess the rub is that women dominate, for obvious reasons (80/20), the general forum and I personally don't and rarely see men post in the Gals' room. It feels like an invasion of the one place that should be The Guys' Room. And, I've read the excuses about how they don't know there in here. To me, they are just that, excuses. I can read a URL just like everyone else. Hope this doesn't start a $hit storm, just want some perspective. Oh and to be clear, I want it from the Men.

    Weight Loss Plateau at 3 weeks???

    Matt Z is so right. and it will happen several more times. What helped me was along with weighing myself, I would measure. Do this once or twice a month. I can almost guaranty you that when the scale temporarily stops moving, your measurements are moving. Attached is what I use to track. Feel free to clear the data and use it yourself.

    Can you guys give me some advice?

    These are also an option later on. Also, a better choice than drinking your protein. At least in my opinion. https://www.amazon.com/Pure-Protein-High-Variety-1-76-Ounce/dp/B01126O3OY/ref=sr_1_1_sspa?ie=UTF8&qid=1533314807&sr=8-1-spons&keywords=pure%2Bprotein&th=1

    Non Scale Victories

    Congratulations to you and welcome to the bench. Thank you for your kind words. If you should ever want or need to talk - Get in touch. It is very gratifying to me when my success is motivation or in some way helps others. Remember to always focus on how far you've come.

    Non Scale Victories

    My top 12 (In no particular order) Diabetes in complete remission Sitting in booths Not worrying if I will fit if I need to use a public restroom Boundless energy Fitting in a chair with armrest - getting out of it without it being stuck to my a$$ Not avoiding my photo being taken Everything I do is easier No pain (Knee, feet, back ....) Going from a 48" wait to 34" Having to remove 4 links from my watch band This conversation - Me: "Honey, did you pick me up anything while you were at the clothing store?" Wife: "NO. I'm afraid to buy you clothes because they will be too big by the time I get them home!" This picture VVVVV
