My date is June 27th and beyond excited!! I'm working hard on my mental game and really working on my food addiction issues. I have been using Deepak Chopra's Shedding the Weight meditations. I listen to them over and over and journal to help myself with this process.

Is anyone else’s family trying to feed them everything before you start the liquid diet. I have enough of a time controlling my own urges, I don’t need any help! I know they mean well. Just curious if my family is the only weirdos.

@okayestmom I haven't told all of my family, but i feel like they would do this! So far only my mom and brother and sister know outside of my hubby. My hubby on the other hand keeps trying to shovel food down my throat "like eat this before you can't!" I keep telling him I will be able to eat that just a small bite will be the only difference. He keeps saying hes gonna get himself a new fluffy wife that loves food since i wont eat so much with him soon.... lol (we joke a lot his crazyness makes me laugh everyday)

My problem right now is that I e been so busy with house buying ad land preparations that I’ve fallen off the wagon in regards to eating well. During my six months of medical weight loss, I’ve done incredibly well and even lost 39 pounds. I don’t need anyone to shove food down my throat. I’m currently having trouble with eating properly all on my own! 🙁

Yep, this is me. I gained weight after my first appointment back in February (celebrating). I finally got down to my first visit weight and am trying to lose more before the surgery because they say the more you lose before helps you lose after. I get that I cannot clear my kitchen of temptation because I have a thin very active 17 year old boy and a husband who has to eat extra calories due to a mass on his adrenal gland. They literally ordered 3 large pizzas and kept offering me some. I didn’t do it. One piece just turns into 3 and so on. They can have the leftover pizza. I just keep reminding myself that it is the unhealthy mass quantities of food that are causing me to not feel well. Would I continue to take a pill that made me feel good at first and then made me feel sick later? Unfortunately, I believe that is what I have done to myself. It just crept up so slow and like you I was busy and not paying attention.

I just went through the thread and followed all the June surgery people. There were several from Texas like me and several teachers. In am not a teacher, but work with Communities In Schools which also follows the school schedule. My organization does not usually work summer school, but I do because I am in an alternative school that offers summer school. I won't be there this year because of my surgery :(. I am hoping we can encourage and keep each other accountable through this forum, and maybe us Texas folks can meet up next summer in a central location. Enchanted rock in Fredericksburg, the River Walk in San Antonio, 6th Street in Austin, or the trillion of places near Dallas where my daughter is. Heck, maybe we can walk a 5k together, just trying to be optimistic and be with some people that get it. I have attached this video before but I hope you guys enjoy my weight loss fish.

I’m down for that! I live in the College Station area, about 1.5 miles from EVERYWHERE. But I drive all the time and would love to have a goal of a 5 K in a year.

      Uh oh! Something happened to Matty this week. I was in a local Wawa (think east coast convenience store) and a gorgeous girl ran smack into me while I was grabbing a grape Propel - just couldn't deal with anymore water today. She was texting and walking ... okay, yeah, this missed me as Gen X'er. Well she looked up at me and flashed me one helluva smile. I was feeling pretty good that day so it was time to bring out some game, "So you know I can't let a gorgeous girl who crashes into me go without getting her phone number." LOL! She turned beet red, asked for my phone and sent herself a text message from mine. She said, "Because you men never call ..." I don't know quite what I was thinking but figured it would be one heck of a ride. What is it with me and short girls? I seem to attract them and I don't honestly care about height. She's all of 5'4". I knew she was young but it didn't occur to me how young. What did I just get myself into?
      I told myself no dating until the scale reads 190 but this new me is feeling sexually driven like I have never been before. Well, she's right I wasn't really planning on calling her so she called me. So I told her my age (41) and was shocked to hear that she generally goes for men older than 35. We must've talked on the phone close to 3 hours. You're going to think I am lying when I tell you she's a 3rd year med student and is interested in training to be a bariatric surgeon. The stars might've just aligned but I want to go slow and told her that I had weight loss surgery. She's totally my type - the professional, highly educated, and ambitious woman. That's what frightens me, because in the past, this has lead to unhealthy relationships. Well, I've got a date lined up for Saturday and I just want to have some fun. I needed money in order to make this happen so I sold a bunch of old computer equipment and managed to raise some capital for this adventure. I know I won't be drinking alcohol but that's okay.

        That's pretty damn epic man... Congrats! It's crazy with some liberally applied confidence can do!

      2. MN_Meg770

        Wow! Way to go Matt! You sound out of my league ;)

      3. okayestmom

        It sounds like you are already have fun even before the date. Relax and enjoy.

        This post was just what I needed, I am tired of medical stuff today.

      4. Mattymatt

        No @MN_Meg770, you're not out of my league. You're just too far away :-( I like you very much and if you lived in my area, you'd be totally dateable. As I wrote before, having a type is not really healthy a thing and I am hesitant to get into a relationship with someone whom might not be very understanding of a disability.

      5. MN_Meg770

        I was just teasing you silly :) It is all good.

      It's more successfully minded to ask questions like.... When can I begin working out.... Or when can I return to work as opposed to when can I eat that or this again.....

      Down another three pounds and had my one-month post-surgery follow-up (although its actually be 7 weeks tomorrow, their scheduling sucks). The nurse practitioner was pleased with my weight loss (36 pounds in 7 weeks) and told me I was cleared to go back to water aerobics and whatever else I would like to pursue exercise wise. Now to find a new pair of tennis shoes
