  1. I got my sleeve 1.5 years ago. No complications. It was a great decision.
  2. My program paid for me to attend some webinars from My Hungry Head since we can't meet. I wondered if anyone else had done them? They seem a little low level to me so far. During the first Zoom meeting, I fell asleep with my iPad on my head. Good thing my camera was off!

    I'm Bored...Quarantine

    I get up and shower, get dressed and put on a little makeup every day. That seems to help. If I don't have a cleaning project in mind, I do Zoom Pilates with my friend who' a teacher, which is awesome. Then I walk the dogs. I'm also on "help" groups for my neighborhood on NextDoor and Facebook. Yesterday I helped four people file for unemployment by answering their questions. I've taught people how to order food online and picked up medication for my brother-in-law who has cancer. Doing things for other people really makes me feel better and less bored.
  4. I go over almost every day. Breakfast: Scrambled egg + Lox, Three prunes, coffee with milk Lunch: Healthy Choice Power Bowl, one of the chicken ones Dinner: Homemade chicken soup w/ veggies Snacks: Built Bar, 1/4 cup of cashews That put me around 100 grams. If I start every meal with protein, I go over most of the time.

    Ever forget you had surgery?

    Yeah, I didn't eat it, just ordered it.
  6. I did personal training with a guy who owned a CrossFit franchise for awhile to get the idea... in private. I'm sure a lot of them offer it.
  7. Did you lift weights before? Either way, go for it, but it will be a lot easier if it's something you used to do. If you haven't I would start with a trainer (if you're not social distancing) so you don't hurt yourself. There are a lot of weight training classes too.
  8. So while we are sheltering in place and cooking at home here in Massachusetts, I wanted to get Thai food delivered as a special treat. And I ordered what I used to order pre-surgery: Steamed vegetables and chicken. But one of my friends was talking about bubble tea today and I wanted one. And the coconut soup looked so good. And since I'm not going anywhere, I got a shrimp roll in rice paper for tomorrow. The food came! So exciting! I made it through the soup and half the bubble tea before I was DONE. I totally ordered like I never had surgery. I guess I have food for the rest of the week now! Just curious if anyone else has done this.
  9. Well, if you have bipolar disorder, you were likely born with the predisposition for it, and for many, a stressful life event and can trigger the onset of the illness. What is stressful to one person may not be stressful for another. So I suppose it could have triggered what was already there. Good luck getting him treatment.
  10. It's a separate issue. Your husband probably needs to be hospitalized until he can be stabilized on medication. If he won't agree to go with you and he acts like he could put you or anyone else in danger, get out and call 911. It has nothing to do with the Gastric Bypass.
  11. I also have depression and chronic back pain. My doctor convinced me to try Pilates for the back pain. If that's something you might want to try, there are a lot of free Zoom classes right now.
  12. I used to weigh daily, now more like every four days. I'm not bothered by normal fluctuations but I don't want to gain during the lockdown. The scale actually provides very little information about health, but it's one of the easier things to do. If normal fluctuations do bother you, I'd recommend doing it a lot less often than I do.

    Recreational Drugs

    Oh so not worth it.

    Recreational Drugs

    Lots of people do cocaine and don't get addicted. You should seek some help for passing misinformation, Nancy Reagan.

    can someone just tell me

    I highly recommend pot if it’s legal where you live and DOESN’T make you hungry.
