50 lbs ago.. I couldn't have enjoyed my vacation



Recommended Posts

Just got back from my week long vacation in Colorado at the Dude Ranch... First I will say that 50 lbs ago I could not have done what I just did last week... I rode horses all day up and down the mountains.. We drove cattle, camped overnight in the mountains after riding 4 hours to get to the "cow camp"... The whole experience was very physical... walking to the barn each day was something I could not have done 50 lbs ago... I did gain a few lbs because the food was awsome but I didn't pig out.. They have everything to eat you would want... fruit, salads, breads, lots of beef (western) the best... fish and wonderful desserts.. I did not over indulge but I wasn't deprived.. I have lost the lbs I gained in just a few days.. (never could have done that before the band)....

Great non-scale victory -- Being able to vacation comfortably, to be physical -- yippee! Thanks for the inspiration, much needed as I wait, wait, wait for a surgery date. Can't wait for feeling better in my body. I want that so much. Best wishes!

That sounds so amazing!! That is how I want to feel!! I'm scheduled for surgery Oct 7 and I feel your joy in your words. I would like to know is it easy to gain weight back? If you can gain does that mean you need a fill? I read a lot about weight gain and I'm just trying to still to figure it all out. Thanks so much!! Keep up that great work you inspire me!

      Hey October Surgery friends...how are you doing? I've lost 15 lbs since surgery on 18th.42 lbs overall. Wearing clothes that feel great. Had a bout of cold and stomach flu and still having some nausea off and on after that but getting better, I think. 
      Seems like I fill up and have minor pain quicker when I eat hot foods rather than cold. Anyone else notice this?
      Still sooo glad I did this.

        I had surgery Oct 29. Lost 35#. Plateau now. But seeing what clothes fit now is encouraging.

        My surgery was 10/19. #40 down since surgeon pre op visit. Getting close to end of soft foods. I think only issue going to regular foods is portion size. So far trying a new food every day. With no issues.
