    Kris77 got a reaction from muala94 in What is your why?   
    Was the heaviest I had ever been. Got to the point when I’d bend over to tie laces felt like I couldn’t breathe. Plus outweighed my husband by a lot. He is a normal weight. So I could have squished him lol. My heaviest was 238. I’m only 5’4 3/4. Now I’m 138. Best decision I ever made. Only regret was that I should have done this sooner!!

    How do you know that you've "stretched your stomach"? Because most likely you didn't. You got used to larger portions and that's normal up to a certain degree. Dr. Matthew Weiner has interesting videos on this on YouTube.
    But you did go to the planned appointments?
    What "lies" did you tell yourself and why do you feel that you "didn't earn" your weight loss? Weight loss after surgery is nothing that needs to be "earned". WLS is a surgical therapy that is supposed to work for the patient like coronary bypass surgery is supposed to work for the patient. You don't need to earn anything here!
    Having WLS is like learning to swim. You can read everything about swimming that's available, you can get lessons on how to learn the best technique, you can talk to people who have learnt to swim until you're blue in the face - but you know what? Most of this stuff means diddly squat the moment you hit the Water for the first time!
    I'm curious about the title. Tell us!
    There are people who lost weight without exercising. Yes, there are many benefits to exercising like cardiovascular health, bone strength, uplifting your mood etc but if you hate it - you don't need to.
    Stop acting like a sinner that needs to do penance, it's so damn destructive and will get you nowhere in the end. There's nothing to confess. We all screwed up with quite a few things in life.
    Be kind to yourself, as hard as it might be right now.

    Same. I like the cookie and actually scrap the inside out and throw away. Although I really don’t eat them since my sleeve but a few times. They don’t do much for me. I have a huge sweet tooth so my list is long of other things lol

    Starting from the bottom up. AGREE! It is not a person’s responsibility to control other’s reactions to the way they look. I HATE the “she was asking for it” thing by “dressing sexy” or drinking to much, and the “boys will be boys” attitude. I was annoyed with the post I believe you are referencing, but was just ignoring it, because that is what I was conditioned to do by the societal norms of my (our) generation. You are right to say something. Thank you! 😘
    Lol...super funny about the height thing. I get a lot of comments about how tall I look now that I am no longer obese. Apparently my legs look longer now, too. Some pretty cool, unexpected stuff with the weight loss. 😊😊
    I WANT a body con dress, but I am struggling to find one this year with all of the looser clothing styles. I WANT you to burst into green flames (lol 😂😂) when I post a picture of this mythical dress with some pretty cool heels I bought recently. I have a dress on order that “might” qualify. I will post when I find this apparent unicorn 🦄😂
  10. Thanks

    Im not usually a jealous person, but the one thing that has me eating envy pie are people who are blessed with HEIGHT.
    You look so tall and slim its killing me.
    If you post a pic in a body con dress and heels i will burst into green flames.
    (Please post a pic in a body con dress and heels!!!)
    P.S. and no, its not your responsibility to dress “appropriately” lest you entice the hoard of “bad boys” into “going nuts”. It’s THIER responsibility to check their misogynistic attitudes and internalize that yes, you CAN control yourselves in the presence of attractive women. And, no, it is not acceptable nor normal nor legal.
    Sorry. I held off for a day. I couldn’t resist anymore.

    My absolute favorite springtime dessert is Pavlova. I make them individual size, build your own style with meringue, lemon curd, fresh berries, berry sauce & whipped cream.
    From Easter:

    Yes, I baked this myself. I am not a baker, but we have two other couples we do rotating dinner parties with, and we are hosting in May. I need to come up with something for dessert that screams SPRING (I like getting all seasonal when it is my turn), so I am testing recipes. I tried a strawberry cake thingy a couple of weeks ago that did not come out.
    This one is a contender, but I would add more berries and mix some into the batter. I think a should have taken it out of the oven sooner too, as the texture towards the center is “creamier” and looks more like the recipe pics. I only baked for about 60 minutes vs the 70 in the recipe, but the edges were a bit dry...probably a high altitude thing. I love the not over sweet flavor. It would be luscious with some whipped cream and maybe a sweeter raspberry sauce for serving. Or ice cream and raspberry sauce. Hmmmm...🤔🧐
    Planning to give most of the rest of it away. My parents will like this😊😊

    Today's salad al Fresco:
    Romaine, carrots, cucumbers, feta, bacon, brussel sprouts, imitation crab, and a couple tbsps of "meat sauce filling crumbs" that the Kid left on her plate after eating her lasagna. Can't waste perfectly good protein!!!
    307 calories
    Ate it all (granted, on and off over a couple hours, but still counts)
    ...and yeah, my Pajama Protest didn't last long. I couldn't bring myself to wear my animal print pj bottoms to the grocery store.
