Ready to Get Back On Track

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone! I was banded in 8/14...lost 35 lbs and gained 20 back. I am on a medication for depression which I struggle with that causes excessive weight gain which has been hindering my progress with the band. I currently weigh 230 lbs. My goal is to get under 200 while being on my medication. Am ready to get back on track and log daily on My Fitness Pal and exercise 3-4 times weekly. I am looking for someone to talk to who can help be a support or who also logs on MFP. Hope to hear from you soon :) ~Rebecca

Hi Rebecca, congratulations on all! I'm not on MFP right now but have been in the past. Just wanted to give a shout-out. You're in good company. Medication can be such a drag but your body will get the right idea. I have exercised for years (arthritis) but I think I was just under what I needed for my body to get the response going. I was sure I'd never have an endorphin high, that I just wasn't wired that way. Well I can and do now but I have to go four miles (I'm a walker); three wasn't hacking it. And I still have to make myself do it even though it feels good after. One thing that helps me is putting my arms up over my head in that crossing the finish line pose -- yippee! I watched a Ted Talk about how that creates positive messaging. So pat yourself on the back, tell yourself you're great (you are!) and put those arms up in the air. Then go exercise!

Hi! Cheers to getting back on track! I too am taking medication for depresion/anxiety and it has not been my only reason for unsuccess, but I too am getting back on the bandwagon. I am excited to put myself and my health back in the forefront of my mind. I just started with MFP, and I will be working out at least 3 times per week. I have a four miler I signed up for months ago on Saturday! Good luck! Let me know if you would like to cheer each other on.

Ditto, ditto, ditto...same issues. Meds for anxiety, arthritis, lost 40 lbs, put 30 back on. Soooo need to get back on track. Death in family 2 years ago did a real number on me. I'm ready to get back to looking after myself. Spring is here, sun is shining,. I haven't checked into this website for a couple of years. No regrets just time to get my sh* t together!! Good luck to you all.

      6 Weeks Post Op!

      My world is drastically different! I now walk 3 to 4 miles a day and I’m constantly getting up to move my body! .

      I close my Apple Watch rings daily and about 4 to 6 days a week I double or triple them!

      I have been released to have all foods. When I reintroduce some I need to start at 1 ounce to see how “Tiny Tummy” likes it!

      I am not reintroducing sugars, coffee or junk! I did not pay close to $13,000 to fail! .

      I went to get follow up bloodwork done this week and my numbers are all in the perfect range! .

      This is my new world and I am happy it!

        I didn’t see it either but I wish I had now for both the battle on court & the ball tampering accusations flying around everywhere now.

        Think about all you will gain. Seriously, nothing is better than my size 4 jeans!

      Went to see the Star Wars movie yesterday. (Glad I waited as no one else was in the cinema for the midday session - yes!) Hadn’t been to the cinema for a few months and OMG I suffered the most terrible butt pain.  So uncomfortable. Started after 30 mins. Was in the premium cinema so grabbed a cushion to sit on but it didn’t help. Ended up sitting sideways in the chair, stretched out on an ottoman. Soooo super glad no one else was there. Sometimes I do miss my old butt fat cushioning... but not really.
