Drinking.

I was a huge social drinker. I’ve drank since WLS. I’ve enjoyed a nice glass of wine or port. But the appeal of sitting in the hotel bar and having drink after drink is gone.

The only hard thing about it is being the only sober one, and people commenting about it. I’ve been told I’m not the same sillykitty any more. I’ve been told that it’s no fun to be around me because I’ll remember all the drunken antics etc.. I miss fitting in only not the drinking

Same thing happened to me when I gave up drinking a 2-3 years ago when I started to get serious about weight loss, then I had to step up my personality to compensate for what people expected from the drinker me

It was exhausting

don't let them pressure you...

Oh yeah, I gave those friends up too lol

Does this mean I no longer have to lose "thirtty pounds" as Dr sNow would say? What a relief, I'm not close to his patients in size! And with my surgery I probably never will be!

I think it’s interesting how many of us watch My 600 pound life.

I watched my 600lbs life too! Obsessively. One year post op and I don't watch tv that much. I have basic cable now just to catch up on local new here and there. Otherwise I am walking during my spare time and letting our youngest daughter tell me what she wants to do with me.

My son, to irritate me, turns to Hoarders, I keep telling him once I have my surgery, really start to lose weight, I will unload all the clothes as I "under-grow" them. Some,of them are old friends that served me pretty well, the rest kept me warm in❄ Ohio❄ Winters.😛

I do miss carbonated drinks, I loved seltzer Water and lime or lemon, and I also liked enjoying a craft beer occasionally. I miss beer. So much. But not enough to indulge in it and risk feeling sick.

I used to Netflix binge a lot more than I do now, can't say I gave it up completely, lol, but now I make myself go for a run before sitting on my ass for a while, or I stop after a couple episodes of whatever I'm watching and do something.

I used to have a really involved hair care routine for my naturally curly hair that I’ve spent the last 2 years growing out to the longest it’s ever been. I don’t bother right now. I’m waiting to see how much of it I have left after the potential Hair loss phase. 😅

      So my surgery anniversary date is on the 24th of this month, but I had my 1-year follow up early with my surgeon this morning (I have another 1-year followup at the hospital on Monday to get my bloodwork and labs done).
      Anyhoo...my surgeon was very pleased with my results (and so where the office staff apparently, because 3 of the front desk ladies came by my exam room to give me props/high fives/generally gawk at me).
      But get this: he asked if I would be willing to come in for a future photoshoot so that I could be on a poster! And I was all, ummmm....no thanks, LOL.

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".
