Well little sis, I think I am just about ready to topple back into the 200s, and I could cry💦 I feared I'd never be down there again. So what if my clothing size isn't yet changing, the lower I go the quicker it will happen. And although 175 and a size 15 junior are still my dreams, I really would find anything under 200 acceptable. But just for the hey nonny nonny, let's see how low I can go! Things may balk, stall and move slowly, but fall of 2019- spring of 2020, I will be looking👀so good! Big Mama is going to be Hot Mama, and even if I am fatal to some, those men gonna have happy on their faces! Won't need so much mortician skills, will they?

Never argue with someone who believes all their own lies. Smile sweetly and do what you have to do for YOU.

Some days I amaze me that I can do this and do it well. And then there was the day I put the laundry in the oven, Tomkitten hasn't let me live THAT down! At least I didn't put the frozen chicken in the washer, now that would be bad, might send me b to the Rubber Room Folks!

      Hey all! So I went in for my weight management class. I thought that would be my last one but I actually have to wait until the nutritionist clears me. She has to decide if I'm ready. I''m not mad at it. It looks like my surgery will be happening in the summertime. So instead of focusing on the surgery date, I'm putting my energy into losing weight and making sure all these appointments are taken care of. It feels like doing mini quests on a video game before trying to fight the BIG BOSS. I'm not ready for the BIG BOSS yet. haha. Feeling pretty good!

      Finished my 6th and final NUT appointment yesterday.  Everything is done except the psych eval and submittal to insurance.  I did everything required of me including the 100 pages plus of food tracking, I lost 5% of my total weight, and I went to every NUT appointment.  
      Hoping for the best, things seem to be lining up well for me and in the end, I think I will be able to fully have my wife on board with this whole thing.  She says she is, but I know she doesn't think I should do it.  Just like I replied to another post earlier, i'm doing this either way, it's my decision at this point and I know I can get her to come around at some point and maybe even convince her to look into it as well.
      Also, I just started with an APAP machine a couple weeks ago and "holy sh*t" has my quality of life improved greatly so far.  I wish I had looked into this years ago.  I didn't think I had apnea until I had the study done and i stopped breathing an average of 12 times an hour.  That's nuts...

      I'm 13 years out from having weight loss surgery. I would have to say it was the best choice I have ever made. I have been successful BUT now I'm feeling like I'm sliding back and getting comfortable with old eating habits. I absolutely do not want to ever go back to where I came from. I'm just needing support and some pointers to get me focused again. Any one have any thoughts or suggestions. Thank you in advance for any help you can give me.
