So y'all my husband is about to finish his requirements for surgery and we've been eating like crap. Like awful. How do I a. Get him in the correct mindset of this ain't gonna fly soon and b. Stop all of this stuff from coming in my damned house.

Well it is now 6 months. and 4 hours since my RnY surgery- so I finally qualify. Funny I wanted to be with you all so badly,i even visited early, but after promising one of you I wouldn't bother you any longer the lustre is quite off.And it is a shame, I once felt I had so much to offer for my trek has been atypical and I thought I might give hope to others.
So I may visit infrequently but it won't be the source of sustainance I once thought it once would be. Sad isn't it? What I wanted so badly, a source of support, once again denied.
If anyone is remotely interested I am at 242, down from a surgery weight of 319, finally starting to go into smaller sizes although still not out of plus/woman and into " normal" sizing. Unsatisfied with the pace and scope of my diet although my bariatric consultants say I am doing fine, I am not so certain. Life is tedious, struggle to get get enough calories in since they capricously pulled my PICC line for an infection blood cultures showed was not present. Now I am struggling, 2 oz Protein or soft veg every 3 hours, 2 oz cuplet of fluids every 15 minutes in between , enough Vitamins, minerals and meds I make a rattling sound when I walk, and currently involved in a p******g war about whether I need Iron infusions and which facility is going to do it. I feel like a ping pong ball, one group says I'm seriously getting low, other says I'm delusional if I think I need it. My recovery is not mine, it's Theirs, I'd run away but I get too out of breath with low "heme" factors. Happy 6 months to ME, waiting on a phone call from one or other telling me if something is scheduled.

Girl! ((hugs)) Throw it in the trash and pour dish soap over it. Every time he brings it in, tump it. Tell him, you are not gonna participate in his shenanigans--you can't afford to. And if he wants to sabotage his future, to do it on his own time...

You're right, if the past held anything for me, I would have stayed there, so forward, even if small steps they are in the right direction. Thanks Tealael for reminding me of what I forgot for a moment.😝

You're so right hon. We talked and I told him I can't eat like crap anymore. So we're gonna finish what's in the freezer the ready made crap because well we ain't got money to just trash it. Then we're meeting the both of us with our nutritionist. I sure as hell ain't going back up to 311. Nope downward progress only. And I also have to be more accountable myself. I know there are days when we will just hit a drive through so salad with grilled chicken

I definitely understand budgets! At least mitigate damage by keeping your crap portions tiny and adding salad or fresh veggies. Glad you’re going to the RD!!

Surgiversary for me! Lost 97.9 lbs, size 10-12 jeans, and went to Club Monaco today to try on a top and the sales guy goes "I'll see if we have a large in the back" which on the surface sounds horrifying but Club Monaco clothes are tiny! And the large fit! And then I didn't buy it because while it fit the color just wasn't exactly what I wanted!

My friend told me when I started seriously thinking about this that the surgery had changed her life, and I thought she was being dramatic. I no longer think that. Shaking off the constant social "you're fat" pressure has been unbelievably freeing, and other people have noticed the huge change in the way I interact with the world. 10/10 would engage in radical body modification again.

Congrats! I don't think any of us truly appreciated the difference one year could make!
