    Haven’t posted in ages. Seeing as schools as closed, most of my wardrobe consists of leggings or workout clothes. Decided to put “real people clothes” on today, had to mark this momentous occasion 🤣 (bypass, 7/10/18, down 130+ pounds)

    I had a few slices of really good pizza, that was it

    Needing a pep talk!

    What about an at home workout like beach body? Plus if you’re home (like I am) take that time to cook some great new recipes
  5. None of us thought we were “that big” you get used to seeing yourself a certain way. You need to have this surgery, but you also need to explore some therapy.

    How is everyone holding up?

    Homeschooling my two sons and not working. Doing a lot of snacking out of boredom. Trying to find a new normal but it’s been really difficult
  9. Very typical, give it a few more days. You’re full of fluids right now
  10. I’m just over a year out from bypass and generally have had smooth sailing. However, today I had a Cobb salad for lunch. Not 45 mins later I was running (hobbling) to the restroom, sweating, groaning, clenching my cheeks and praying I’d make it (I did, I’m such a big girl) A few hours after that, my blood sugar tanked and I was shaking, heart racing, dizzy, etc. The only thing I can think is maybe the dressing had loads of sugar/fat in it that I’m not used to. Regardless, it was a gentle (ahem) reminder that my insides still make the rules. If you need me, I’ll be drinking about 60 more Oz of water. What a day...

    Rant re: chairs in the doctors office

    Is the place a bariatric office or just a general doctor’s Office?

    New Hobbies or interests anyone?

    So fun! I like hearing everyone’s hobbies. I have a real lack of motivation this time of year

    Need No gym options

    You could take out exercise DVD’s from the library, search YouTube or stream a program
  21. No more Gatorade and track everything.
  22. I told my husband and parents. That’s it. People know that I work out a lot and see a nutritionist
  23. Use the search tool. I’ve come across many stories of women who found they were pregnant after surgery. My surgeon said no babies until 2 years out though, so just keep that in mind.
