    am a FAILURE in my weight-loss journey

    thanks for the suggestion but I'm not depressed nor need anti-depressant meds. I dont know where this came from but I appreciate the tips and all in case in the future I'd need it. :thumbup:

    am a FAILURE in my weight-loss journey

    thanks everybody for the encouraging words!!!! it means alot that there are people that care and been there. I went in to get another adjustment- and I am feeling more restricted and focused on what and how much I eat. I lost 8 more since my last adjustment. YAY. I am slowly adding more exercise into my routines and now I have more time on my schedule (I work at a school, so I dont work full time in the summer) I've been telling myself if I want to go swimming I gotta exercise and sweat my a** off and then Im allowed to go for a swim- I even add an exercise into my swimming. it's helping alot. I just need to set a limit and keep going. thank you guys for the push of motivation!

    am a FAILURE in my weight-loss journey

    Yes I'm willing to give it all up- I've given up alot of things... And yeah, I've cut down the sizes too. It's the snacking in between and exercising more. and yes I really need to work out my issues about letting food go. It's not worth my life to be too attached to food. I am definitely looking into attending weight loss support group offered monthly at my hospital. I do drink wine at nights as well. I really need to cut this down too if i have to for awhile until i get my groove back on and try to limit it to weekends only. I am going to get up and try at this again, and not give up. thanks for the slap in the face... i do need this.

    am a FAILURE in my weight-loss journey

    The last time I went for my last fill, I gained 7 lbs. I am afraid to go again and see another gain and feel depressed all over again. I am embarrassed to face it. I am also aware I am not ready to give up my favorite foods, and I am struggling with that. Sometimes I postpone my fills because my Dr is only available on Thursdays and it conflicts with my work and stuff. :Dancing_biggrin: I don't mind the questions; I need all the help I can get! thanks
  6. Hello guys--- Not a good post here from me but it's the truth and I need HELP. I feel like a FAILURE in my weight-loss journey. I've only lost 35 since my surgery 11/12/09. I am dealing with so many things and I really am struggling. I kinda lost my motivation and I am very depressed with my failure. I had 3 fills, and I keep postponing my fill appt's- I should have had 5 by now. I only have 3cc's in my band right now. I don't exercise like I should- I drink ALL the time with my meals. What is WRONG with me!? I am not doing this on purpose to myself but I just can't seem to get OUT of this FUNK and get going with my journey. I feel that I do have food addiction problem, and I really am stuck in this funk- I was so excited for my lapband and now I am regretting it- I know it's ME that has to WORK it and make it work... I just CANT find the motivation and am screaming to get it back. Any one of you going through this? How do you PUSH yourself to do better? I am very jealous of all of your successions, BUT i am very proud of y'all! KEEP it up, please don't be like me! <3

    Hey guys! Sorry I've been MIA in the past 2 months... I've been busy and the holidays and being out of town & also just started a new job- now I'm all settled down, about time! Anyway, I got banded 11/10/09. I had NO restrictions, was gaining and I finally finally FINALLY got my first FILL today. I hope this will help at least a bit for now. I ate cheese broccoli soup with some saline crackers today. It went through just fine. I believe my dr put abt 1 - 1.5 cc's in my band. I will go back on Feb 11th to get my 2nd fill. I really really really need to get started with more exercise now that warmer weather is here. I got a Wii from my parents for Christmas, I just need to buy a Wii Fit then I'm all good to go with the Biggest Loser game I bought recently as well. Hope everybody is doing better than I am!! I'm really hoping to do better this month... cheers! :thumbup:

    aww girl- sorry to hear u're in pain after 7 days... I guess it varies with everyone. I can relate with you about getting our period during recovery process. UGH it couldnt have come at a better time, eh!? DITTO- I bled way heavier and had my period longer than usual right after surgery - not usual for me! I wonder if it's because of that? Hope your cramps gets bearable soon. Take hot baths as much as u can! Keep walking, bit by a bit. I know the feeling of walking back and forth trying to not throw up. Been there- It will only get easier day by day. Hope you recover faster! I know what you mean by staying away from funny people! My roommate is an actor and a comedian- so I suffered with stifled laughters lol :thumbup: take it easy!!

    Hellllooo! Banded on 11/10/09 in Austin TX and feeling great!!! Am feeling pretty much back to myself 100% now. I had gone through a painful week last week during recovery because my period decided to show up the day after my surgery- Gosh, I never want to go through that ordeal again, ever! But I'm glad It's over with and I am back to myself now. I also experienced hard time taking liquids first few days, but after 4th day- was fine and got my hunger back in about a week. Everything seems good- I had my first appt last Thurs on 11/19/09 Dr gave me two thumbs up, and LOST 26 lbs since pre-op diet!!! I'm hoping to lose 175 lbs. I have my first fill appt on 12/31 So I am on the mushies stage right now... I was so happy to be eating mashed potatoes, guacamole, hummus, pureed sauce with some ground turkey and ricotta, oatmeal, cream Soups, etc... :thumbup: Nice to see many people here supporting each other... that def makes our ride easier!!
