Thank you!! What has been helping me go to the gym is doing something I love which is swimming. At first it was very hard for me to put on a bathing suit but I had to get it in my mind that I’m not doing this to please others but I’m doing this so that I can live!! Then it was about me getting healthy and not worrying about anything anyone had to say. The sugary drinks hasn’t been a big problem as much as my sweets has but I’m working on that as well and have cut back tremendously!! Congratulations on your process as well!! Far as your concerns I can relate with the pains but everyone is different so you may or may not have any pains. That’s what I keep telling myself lol. Taking your Vitamins and dying are big concerns but we can set alarms to remind ourselves to take them and have positive vibes that we aren’t going to die!! Far as telling others about your surgery, you can easily tell them to mind their own business lol lol lol but in all seriousness you have the choice if you want to tell anyone about your WLS. I myself have only told maybe five people and they have been my biggest supporters, but I haven’t put much thought into what I would say after my surgery. But it hasn’t been a huge concern for me, because again I have the mindset of I have to live!! Nobody is going to make me feel bad about wanting to live.

Love the attitude and your mindset! "Nobody is going to make me feel bad about wanting to live." I need to start thinking a little more like you! I stop myself from doing so much because of how I feel about my body. Its time to get for this journey and learn to embrace it!

        It will be interesting to watch as this theory develops. Thanks for posting!

      Feel like it's time for a status update, I haven't been on here regularly in a while and I need to keep my mindset focused on my goals.
      I haven't weighed myself in ~ 3 weeks.  I think I'm becoming the opposite of "obsessive" about tracking my progress and it could cause me some issues.  The good thing is that there have still been quite a number of NSV's happening that is telling me that I'm still progressing without knowing what the scale says.
      First one is that a belt I bought about 5 weeks ago because all my other belts were too big is also on the last hole so I'll have to buy yet another belt again.  second, I bought new jeans about a month ago and I have a lot more slack in the waist than I did when I purchased them.  I also boarded a plane and had about 8 inches of slack in the belt.  Finally, I hit my goal last week of being able to ride go-carts with my kids.  The last time I tried about 4 years ago, I had to leave because I couldn't fit in the harness.  This was sweet victory and I showed those two how it was done on the race course!!  😈

      I just looked through all my old pants after my pre-op pants started getting to big. Keep in mind that I wear men's pants (usually cargos) because I am so tall 5'10"/5'11" ish. I also find that men's baggies tend to fit me better.
      I started out at a 44 in waist pant and quickly found that I was back down to my 42's. So even when thise got to be too big, I had to start pulling old clothes out of storage. After finding my 38's, I thought that these would not yet fit, but when I tried them on, they fit perfectly. I also found some older pants that now fit better than I remembered. What a relief! It's not like I can pop down to the store like I could do in the US and the styles here in Sweden are all skinnt jeans which I cant stand. I also found some 36's, but I'm not mentally ready to try those on yet. The biggest challenge will be buying women's clothing again.

      slow and steady wins the race.  don't get discouraged and just keep at it. Let your sleeve do its job and try not to stress yourself out.
      hope you are all having a great summer and enjoying what your sleeve has given you.
      just got back from a wedding in OR. and man am i afraid to get on the scale

        Great reminder about how fast you can lose weight. The mind games we play with ourselves are the worst.
