It’s part of the journey to keeps us humble. Yikes. But adding some new core exercises hopefully will help build up some muscle and more muscle burns more fat. So I’m in !!

Today (well depends on the time zone I guess!) is my one year surgiversary. So glad I made this decision. I’m enjoying my life so much more, and I was reasonably content before! 😊😊

I'm parking this here. Saw it on the Facebook and thought, hey don't we all need a reminder about coping techniques at times--the ones that don't involve eating to stuff our feelings back down?

8 months post-VSG here, and officially 100lbs down (286 to 186). Weight loss still going at about a pound a week, but am way past my original target (219), off all BP meds, and feeling good. Still not spending enough time in the gym - got to focus on that next!

I hope it doesn’t offend anyone for my “hearts” on your posts. I’m a stalker of this thread. I keep thinking “this will be me in a year “. Thank you all for inspiration.

      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.
