Recommended Videos to Keep Your Mind Off Food

Just saw it this weekend: Deadpool 2. Absolutely laugh out loud funny if you're into that kind of movie. (We are.) One of the few sequels as good as the first movie. And yes, they are comic-book characters, but this is NOT a family-friendly film! Do not watch with your 7 year-old.

Absolutely nothing in the film to trigger food cravings!

Had not been to the theater in quite some time. Last Tuesday my wife wanted to go see a horror film (she has a thing for them, almost an addiction). I hate them but figured, why not. We went to the Dine In theater because there was some kind of deal/discount that night. My wife ordered food and everyone surrounding us was eating. I was completely fine with my focus, during almost the entire movie, on Bubble Witch Saga on my phone. It was excellent, the movie was SOOOOOOOO bad and boring I let my phone distract me from everything, including the food.

Slender Man if you were wondering.

One of my boys went to ComiCon dressed as Slender Man. Was a major pain to pee wearing a full body suit under a suit! He got some great pics, though!

I just went I see Searching staring John Cho and Debra Messing (unexpectedly great movie) with my sister as an early birthday celebration for her. She had froyo and I had iced coffee, I don't think there were any eating scenes in the movie. She and I both commented on how absolutely intoxicating the popcorn smelled, neither one of us was hungry, which further convinces me they are adding addictive chemicals to the mix...

Yeah, and I was being really loud yelling during the whole thing.

It was an eat in theater so it wasn't nearly as dark as normal theaters. The lighting there to make it able for you to eat out shined the light from my phone 10 fold.

I read the book, hated it. Nothing blew up. Yeah, I'm shallow. I know ;) and I need constant, over-the-top entertainment. No chick-flicks for me.

Baywatch - on Amazon Prime. Zac Efron is a nice distraction from food. :) And surprisingly I actually thought it was a pretty good movie overall.

Thanks for that. I was sweating there for a minute. Felt like I was back in the theater getting yelled at and about to get my ass kicked. ;)

      Looking on the bright side: both a loss of 1lb/week and a loss of 4lbs/week are LOSSES.  So long as the trendline is going down, I'm happy.

      Thought I'd give an update.  I'm over half way to my goal, which is awesome, and I've lost over 12 inches in my waist!  The weight isn't coming off as quickly as I had hoped, but I am also not exercising and still not getting even close to the amount of water I should be drinking, so slow weight loss is not all that surprising.  Sometimes I'm just "over it" and try to eat huge portions like I used to, but, thankfully, I feel the restriction of my smaller stomach and can't go crazy.  In general, I'm quite good, just trying to live my life.
      I now have a motivation to start exercising, though... I booked a plane ticket to Germany for the end of September, so this is a good chance to get strong, get hydrated, and reach my weight goal.

      Wow looking through my own eyes I just don't see 50 lbs done.  I took the side my side picture from 4 months ago to today's and can only see some change.  I hope I can keep loosing.  I just read that the window or the honeymoon stage of weight lost is in the first 4 months after that it will slow down and you have to work even harder to keep it going.  Trying to keep positive even if it is one pound I lost in 2 weeks.

      So I had my surgery on Jan 7th. At this point I haven't eaten anything for 2 weeks am giving myself my injections. I can barely stomach the protein shakes that I am to have twice a day. I have noticed a small weight loss not as much as I thought I would have since I haven't eaten anything. I haven't started working out at the gym yet. I broke in a horrible case of hives from my incisions but have since been cleared up. I didn't really have any nausea from my surgery. I don't even feel like I had surgery. I am sure once I start eating  I will notice. To ask others. I have sleeve surgery so wondering if anyone else out there had this surgery how did you feel after. When did you start eating foods. I am nervous to start eating. I drink my 64oz plus water a day but that's about it that I am taking in other than the occasional sugar free Popsicle.
