June 2019 challenge

Recommended Posts

Hah, I'm undefineable! But, I'll admit that my past has shaped me and I think mostly for the good. So, I'm reviewing the past month as I will be travelling tomorrow. Weight loss was a tad slower this month than the previous. I also noticed that my energy and drive seemed to be lower as well. But then again, I did things like try to eat a cupcake. I liked the idea of one much better than actually eating one...didn't finish it. At any rate, I love that I'm still losing and that I'm still sticking to the program. See y'all next month!

6/28: I'm in control of what I can control...

So very very true. I need to be revised to RNY for GERD. At first I was was shocked, then all for it, then felt like it was totally my fault but testing confirmed it was nothing i could have done to prevent it. So far im totally just rolling with it until its a reality. It feels surreal for sure. Especially doing a 2 week preop diet while being at goal 😭 but ... C'est la vie

6/29: My past doesn't define me, but helps me remember the future I'm fighting for

6/30: June has been a whirlwind for me, not necessarily bad but definitely filled with some... moments I'll never forget

I truly appreciate you @Cheeseburgh for throwing an amazing party in here... the Skalender tried to kill us in the end 😭😂

      Looks like I need people around to complete a 10K.  I tried to do one by myself this afternoon and I gave up at around the 7km mark.  Gonna try again on Friday, but I may have to look into joining a running club...

      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 in 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 her i had Gastric Sleeve.
      I am sure family has passed it around to other family (you have that type family don't you? or is it just me)  
      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

        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.

        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..."
