Hello all! I had my surgery June 25th and am feeling discouraged and down. I’ve lost a pound a week consistently this last month, but the slow losing is making me feel like a failure. I follow the rules and I eat healthy. What’s bothering me even more is that I have made great progress, so why am I even down on myself? Yesterday was 2 months and I’m down 35lbs and 20 inches. My doc said 1-2lbs per week is exactly where I should be. So why I am beating myself up? This is such an emotional mind game and I feel like I’m losing.

We are in the same boat. My surgery was june 13th and i am down 38 lbs. It started off fast but now is slow going. I had a 2week stall so i really know what you mean about it being a head game. Try to stay positive, we will both make it in the long run. We got past the hard part, now we just need to stick with the program. You can do it! ☺

      Ok, now im getting old...my body gets me up at my normal 5am dog walk even when it's the weekend, vacation, and most importantly when I'm sick. So now that I have more energy, my body wants to make sure I suffer even longer during the day when I have a cold! Damn being healthy again! (:D)

      At my Primary Physician appt, the Doc said you know you lost a whole person. When you started seeing me you were 265lbs now you're 148lbs.
      She's right... I lost the fun me 😂 Joking Joking Joking. It's amazing who keeps track when you don't like insurance and browsers feeds

      Me: Hey Siri, Is it raining outside? (for my morning walks with the dogs)
      Siri: I don't think it's raining at the moment.
      Wet Dogs: Then why are we wet? This damn Siri person is more stupid than we are.
