I would like to join. I'm roughly 18 months PO and was down 86 lbs before a 15 lb regain, these last 2 semesters of school have been rough. My goals for May are to lose 8 lbs of my regain (2 lbs per week), get active again and comfortably fit into a smaller size of scrubs (currently in a large and putting on mediums feels like Im going to be trapped forever lol!). That last one might be stretch but we'll see what happens πŸ˜‰

I would love to join this but I am due for surgery on the 6th for my bypass. I am right now on a liquid diet. So there is no food besides the Soups, Protein Shakes, sf puddings, sf Jello, and greek yogurt going in right now. I just want to get past my surgery and heal completely before the beach days with my sons. I want to be able to get in that ocean Water as well

Every level and stage can join. You set your own goals and participate at your comfort level. food and fitness path not necessary to join.

Motivation, inspiration & wellness is the name of this game. To remind us all that we are whole actualized people and not just a collection of excess lbs to lose πŸ’œ

Personal goal is to lose 10 lbs in May and increase my time in the gym to 3 times a week. Good luck to everyone in the challenge.

I'm going to sign up again, and hopefully I will do better in May than I did in April. *sigh*

I'm currently pre-op, although my surgery is on May 16th. I know I won't be doing much in the way of activity (certainly not push ups) in the last couple of weeks of the month, but my goals for May are:

  • lose another 5 lb before surgery (currently 245.6) by being very strict with my pre-op diet
  • hit 12000 steps every day before surgery, and to walk at least 10 minutes 3x per day after surgery (more hopefully)
  • finish prep for my family for post-op (finish spring cleaning and making freezer meals for them for the first 2 weeks)
  • keep a positive outlook during and after surgery, and to be kind to myself.

      My Surgeon asked me a question the other day and i didn't give it a lot of thought at the time.
      He asked "do you tell"
      we were talking about peoples reaction to seeing me since i lost such a large amount of me.
      I answered that i do tell if they ask but that it seems most everyone is afraid to mention it if they haven't seen me inΒ a while or they decided they already know the answer so they don't need the truth from me (we all know those types)
      I have had exactly one family friend come right out and ask me how i lost so much weight this year and i told herΒ i had Gastric Sleeve.
      I am sure family has passed it around to other family (you have that type family don't you?Β or is it just me) Β 
      So that left me wondering "do you tell" and i dont mean right at surgery time. more like a year or so down the road do you say how or do you just say cut out the sugar and carbs and WAALAA
      Its a real personal choice to open yourself up to that kind of criticism and we know all about how we took the "Easy" way and yada yada yada.
      hope everyone is having a great week

        If people ask, I am open about it

      2. ms.sss

        I'm about 10 months post op, and my standard answer is I eat way less and exercise way more (oh, and I cut the carbs by a lot). The only people I told were Mr., the Kid, BFF and my Mom.

      3. FluffyChix

        People know cuz my sissies have big mouths. And when skinny peeps ask out of morbid curiousity and they are "related" somehow to me, I look at em and arch my eyebrow and smile like, WTF? Then I just shrug and say, "I can neither confirm nor deny." (I've practiced this in the mirror many times. LOL!)

        But today, I was talking to a lady in my oncologist's office and she said "Oh don't you love you Surgeon X - bariatric surgeon? I'm in her weigh loss program!" And so I really opened up to her and talked frankly about the program and the surgery and details and how I'm so much happier and healthier, etc. So there has to be a real genuine need and desire for comraderie--otherwise, "Bye Felicia..."
