If sweets entered my house, I’d demolish them in a day or two. Now? I’ve had a cupboard full of Girl Scout Cookies for five months. I have chocolate left over from my Christmas stocking. I had to throw out Japanese mochi because I forgot about it and it went hard. I keep an emergency tube of cookie dough in my fridge for kid visits and it’s been untouched for two months. That’s not even getting into all the Pasta I’ve similarly not touched.

It is crazy that my brain doesn’t go for those things for stress eating anymore. These days it’s cheese, coffee, Crystal lite or cashews... which now I’ve written it is weird because it all starts with “c”. Odd. But one of the ”c”s is not candy or cookies, which is remarkable!

Count me in for another one obsessed with My 600 lb Life. I dont care anymore.

I used to go to the grocery store and buy a ton of food for a bad day. French bread, spinach dip, rotisserie chicken, sides from the deli and of course a variety of deserts. I would use the excuse that I deserve it. Now I have other ways to cope with being tired or having a bad day. I dont go to the store when I feel stressed out because I dont want to be tempted.

Eating out...the thrill is gone. I can only eat tiny amounts so I have to sit and watch other people eat

That's my biggest concern sitting here one week post-op.

Also, my partner and I's favourite pasttime was scoffing down pizza while watching my 600 pound life.

The good thing? Is that as you develop a great interest in living and eating healthy, and as you lose weight and become more and more active, you will find it hard to "sit" in front of the tv. Cuz you are gonna crave activity and people. It happens to a lot of us! We WANT to be more social. So you can develop new activities and interests. It's like coming back to life from a deep sleep and isolation.

I agree with @FluffyChix - it wasn't something I realised would happen but gradually I began to get my active just because i wanted to be. I always used to push myself to do things like try and exercise or do housework but after having lost a shittonne* of weight I accidently discovered I like doing stuff more. I even run up and down the stairs without meaning to. Seriously I find myself doing it without realising it. I've got places to BE, peoplez.

True. However, I am a movie buff, they have always been a large part of my life even before becoming morbidly obese. For me to become more social.. I'll have to learn to actually like socialising, and for that I'll need to like people. Anyways, I am sure I'll get more social, but I not neglect my TV, or Plex collection, haha.

It's like a traffic accident, you slow down and "rubberneck" . Oh you know you shouldn't, somebody just got injured maybe even killed, but human nature being what it is, you still watch. I suspect, also, if people watch they can't say to themselves " See I'm not THAT big!" I can handle things better than that" I wouldn't let a doctor talk that way to me, let a doctor act that way towards me!" Yeah a sense of superiority.And maybe as an appetite suppressant? Sometimes seeing how badly they wobble when they walk, it kills your appetite.
I agree with you ...
I felt better while watching and comforting my self - see you aren't so big ... you won't be like that ...
And there was a good side ...
I freaked out while watching - I don't want to be like this... not being able to walk , shower , or anything on my own .
Now , I don't watch it .
My surgery is coming soon - just 15 days [emoji27]

It’s taking some getting used to, but here goes only 25 days post-op (yes, counting days is something I didn’t used to do to lol)..
Drink daily (money spent on other things now)!
Buy food like I had a house full of Protein (just me and my daughter)
Eat out all the time (just because)
Yep..watch My 600lb Life and My Family Weighs a Tom!
Entertain stupid guys..just don’t
New Me (mentally and physically)!

      Yesterday I "officially" eclipsed the 100 lb mark.  I'm sure if you're in any other country than the US, the 45.3 kg mark doesn't sound as much of a milestone, but it's very cathartic for me to post that I hit it. 
      I recently read back through both my BP status updates and my private journal and hitting this milestone makes all the things I "worried" about seem stupid, but I know they're not stupid because they were very real at the time.  Also, I think if I didn't give these fears my full attention, I may not have been as successful as I have been to date.
      I'm about 50 more pounds off my end goal and I know that will not be the end, I will continue to strive for bettering myself in both physical and emotional ways.  I have to hunker down and get this done. 
      I'm noticing if I don't exercise every day, the weight loss stalls quite a bit.  I'm not really into the 80/20 theory with diet and exercise, I think there's a genetic modifier that needs to be applied and it's different for everyone, just my opinion... don't hold it against me.

      RE: the running/training
      Honestly it started with me just doing laps around the kitchen that first post-op week.
      In a week, I graduated to walking up and down my street, then to walking around the block every day.
      The distance increased, then the speed.
      Then I started running little spurts during my walks, then to alternating 1km runs with 1km walks.
      And now I can do a continuous 10k (which I totally did for the first time this morning...so full of myself about it today, it’s disgusting.)
      Just do something everyday and slowly increase speed and duration, next thing you know you’ll be one of those odd “running people” (who I never understood pre-op, but now totally get, lol)

        Happy Sunday! I like weird people. Normal people are boring! :) I began following you and wanted to know if there are any other members you would recommend? My surgery is 8/29/19 and I want to learn as much as possible. Have a great day and thanks so much for the website.
