    So how's everyone doing? Hope all is well. It's good to be finally back to work. Once I became healthy enough to go back to work, it was a bit challenging to find a job that wouldn't require me being away from home for a week or two at a time. I landed something temporary moving cars between Carmax dealerships. It keeps me so busy that I sometimes forget to eat because I am not hungry. Now that I am not quite so bored, I don't reach mindlessly for food to fill up time. LOL! Hoping to maybe get 7 pounds more off by August 4th for my brother's wedding. Matty has his eye on a bride's maid .... LOL! At least the scale is starting to move again. I think if I lose another 7 pounds, my size 48 loose fit jeans won't even stay up with a cinched belt anymore.

    This week my diet was relaxed as i ate a slice of cake, a slice of pie, a tortilla chip (lol) and a few pieces of fruit. so the scale decided to move again. After a month. No rhyme or reason to stalls I swear. If I was perfect on plan , no change....

    Had an interesting experience at Patient First... went in with symptoms of a UTI and discovered I'm extremely dehydrated, with protein in my urine, and I also might have gallstones. Frustrated but glad I ended up getting tested so I could be aware of this stuff.

    Well, I hit the gym for the first time post-op today, nothing too strenuous, just 30 min on the treadmill. And that's all it took for me to feel my first real hunger pangs since surgery. I'm hoping they will be isolated to post-workout because I'm just NOT ready to give up my blissful lack of hunger yet. I know it will go away eventually but I was hoping for several more months!

    It was like a scene from The Exorcist tonight.  Pizza was involved.  And hanger, lol.  I stayed strong (somehow) and made my planned Curried Lentil Coconut Soup (soooooo good) and let my guys eat their #@$%& pizza without me.

    Tonight's experiment: wonton wrapper lasagna (made with ground turkey and a Greek yogurt cream cheese/mozzarella/cheddar/spices mix instead of ricotta, which I don't like) and tacos (made with taco meat pilfered from my sister's supper). In the oven now!

    Anyone else just eat the powder from the crystal light packets? I had a craving for something sour so I just had a little bit of a sample packet of the sugar free kind my doctor gave me. Now I keep it on my desk with a clip on it so I can just have a little bit of the powder when I crave it. WLS makes you do weird things, man!

    It's funny; I was really worried the past few days about how easy it's been to reach 1,000 calories, and today I was barely able to reach 850 despite having eaten some good meals and worked out. I just need to be more conscious of what food choices I make. I'm learning more about what makes me feel satiated every day! Definitely tuna and chicken, for sure. Dangerous foods for me include roasted chickpeas, cheese, and nuts... They just don't fill me up much.

    So yesterday, I did a dumb thing. I went to see the Dietitian and Therapist at my surgeons office and I was so anxious at the fact that I had not lost any more weight. I had forgot to eat since Thursday morning (It could have been that I subconsciously did it out of fear of being told I am not doing a job). I weighed in at 196 lbs and found out that I had lost 5 inches since my last visit which they were proud of. They gave me a much needed pep talk and I was ready to tackle on the world again. 
    I went to the gym (still had not eaten) and began my workout. My second set in and apparently I fainted. I know my trainer woke me up and apparently, I was trying to climb on the pull-up bars yelling, “I have to do the pull-ups” . Then in the Ambulance I am telling them that they are trying to hold me back from exercising and this is why our relationship will never workout . They tried to give me Oxygen and apparently I got rude with them and said, “I’m not paying $400 for **** that I can do naturally and for free.” 
    After some testing, I found out my blood pressure and sugar was very low and I was severely dehydrated as well. 
    Well 6 hours, $100 copay (probably hundreds in ER bills cause they will charge you for napping) and an annoyed mother later, the moral of the story is to remember to eat. Just eat. Don’t worry about the scale and the mind games it plays. Just eat. Now I am not saying junk food or anything like that but eat the healthy stuff. Don’t be afraid to. 
    I was so in my own head, that I forgot one of the most essential parts of living and that is fueling this body I have worked so hard for.

    I just want to give a New Year update...
    I  don't deal with this site any longer..'cause of all the drama from a few people on it...however I have reached my goal weight 185 lbs..from my surgery in May 1st.
    I am holding well had my six month follow ups with the dietitians...surgeons... nurse practitioner..it's all good... ......even after the holidays...and yes I even indulged a little...A LITTLE !!!...the secret. I enjoyed "SOME" pasta (1/2 A CUP)...chocolate, cookies and even a small piece of cake or two..you only live once..it's called self control....right !?
    I am eating healthier than when I was in my twenties..and am enjoying it...NO ****.!!!!
    I have whole new wardrobe..from a 50 inch waist now at a 36 inch waist and I'm wearing "skinny jeans"....from 4 XXL shirts to XL-L size shirts..
    it's all good..
