    3 Month Stall. WTF?!

    I didn't. I am currently 15 months out and I'm down 83 pounds. Still working towards it, though. Congrats on your weight loss!

    The Last 20 lbs...

    Whhhhhhhyyyyyyyyyyyyyy will these ast 20 lbs not go away?? I am SO sick and tired of my body being disproportionate. It's like, my entire body is a size 12, but my belly is a 16. My skinny jeans don't fit right cause I have to get them bigger around the belly. I just don't know what else to do. I'm working out 3 days a week on average and eating decent. And of course this feeling makes me wanna eat. It's all so stupid. -AtA

  6. Hey everyone. This is my first post to this forum. I am one week post op, and I am feeling so down. Of course, my love of food is partially to blame. But, I live alone and I'm pretty much going through this by myself. Yes, I have friends who live far away that are supportive, but I still have the "sads". I am afraid for a few reasons. 1. I'm afraid that I'm gonna lose my hair. I've grown my locs for 7 years and nothing would be more devastating than to have to cut them off. 2. I'm in the full liquid diet stage and idk what to think. I had cream of wheat, about 6 bites, and I didn't get full (I don't think) but I stopped because I was afraid I would overdo it. 3. I'm extremely tired. Even though I work from home, I'm afraid I won't get through the day on my first day back tomorrow. 4. I'll be starting my vitamins tomorrow and I'm terrified because nobody seems to be able to tolerate them. Idk, yall. I just want to live a normal life and I can't see it. I need to see it. Thanks for listening -ATA Sent from my SM-G960U using BariatricPal mobile app

    Depressed, Scared, and Everything In Between

    Is she seeing a therapist? I will be the first one to tell you that changing my eating habits has been the hardest thing for me. Sometimes, the food doesn't even seem enjoyable. And yes, it's hard to eat out but she can totally do it! I've been telling people that my success with weight loss has been that I am eating a lot less, a lot more. And that is not a lie. She just needs to let her friends know (when they start asking) that she is making a change to better herself. And ask for a box to box up half her food! This is a HUGE change for those of us who has lived to eat all of our lives. Its a constant struggle. But at this point in time, I don't regret it. I pray your sis sees the process for what it really is! -AtA

    So sorry your sis is going through this. I, fortunately, only had these thoughts for about 48 hours then I was ok. I would say that she will start feeling better once she sees the weight come off, but she should be seeing that by now. Does she ever say why she regrets it?? -AtA

    From the research Ive done, the reason why caffeine should be limited is because it can cause dehydration. I also read somewhere that it increases appetite, but I have never experienced that. -AtA
  14. I walked in a popular 5K in June 2018. I was actually training myself to run it, but it didn't happen that way. I'd taken a picture with my participation medal, and the picture was posted by the photographer on a website so that people could go and grab theirs if they wanted. Before I was able to get to the website, I got a notification that someone Id met at the race that morning posted the pic and tagged me on FB. When I saw the picture, I broke down in tears. I was angry that the girl posted it because it seemed weird for he to post a picture of ME, but I was disgusted at the way I looked. I tried so hard to find good in that picture and I just couldn't. That did it. I was 100% tired of being big. -AtA

    ❤Summer Body Routines❤

    Started working out 2 weeks ago. Surgery was 12/17. Surprised myself when I was able to run (on the treadmill) for 20 mins nonstop. Im now running about 3 miles nonstop in about 45 mins. I tried running outside and did about a mile, surprised myself again lol. I've focused on cardio to get the pounds down, but just bought resistance bands to help tone. I truly just want to be able to run a 5k on the hilly streets here in Georgia. I am way further along than I imagined. Couldn't run 4 mins straight prior to surgery without having to use my inhaler. All that being said...3-4 days a week cardio with toning in between is my plan for now. -AtA
