B-Side Questions: Were/Are you a sweets or salty food person? Has anything changed since surgery?

I'm definitely more of a salty person, but I'm not crazy for salty Snacks like chips, popcorn, etc. I prefer actually meals. As far as sweets go, I prefer ice cream or gelato. Any other dessert can go.

Day 21: What small item do you use daily that you are most grateful for?

My Apple Watch: I've had one version or another for a while now, but just in the past year have I really started to use all the features regularly and I am now a legitimate fan-girl. I at first got it specifically for the email/message notifications, so I didn't have to have my phone out all the time, as I get ALOT of messages both time-sensitive and not-so-much. Now I use it for all the fitness/health tracking, the MFP integration, timers/reminders, voice activated message responses IN ALL messaging apps, remote camera use, music playing & remote, the list goes on and on and on....

...and no, I am in no way affiliated with Apple Inc. nor its subsidiaries.

P.S. and did I mention its waterproof? It can track my laps when I swim!

Day 21: I'm most grateful for my mini fridge. I bought it on Amazon not that long ago for my office and it has been great for storing my meals and drinks. I have different ingredients in the fridge depending on what my lunches are at work. I hate warm drinks (depending on the drink) so this has been great for storing my homemade juices too.

Ok, the parents are officially moved into their new place... WHEW!!! 🙌

What I am most grateful for in my daily life:

Well, that has to be my wonderful family. They are everything.

Small item used daily that I am most grateful for:

Other than my phone, it would be my food scale. It has taught me a lot about what portions should look like.

B Side Question- Sweet or salty Snacks?

Always have been a salty snack lover, and I still am.

I am pretty sure if the devil himself wanted to show up with a food to tempt me he would be carrying a giant bucket of movie theatre popcorn.

Day 19: I am most grateful on a daily basis for the collection of lip balms that I have everywhere I go. My purse, my bike purse, my bedside table, my car, Jim's truck, etc. My lips just constantly feel dry even though I am well hydrated. I think it is an age thing....

B-side: My personal opinion " Don't sweat the small stuff...and it is all small stuff" I just have no patience with people that are constantly in the crisis mode. I feel a lot of empathy for some on here that are younger than me and so much more challenged by health issues but some just need to get a grip.

B. My hatred of being fat was my biggest issue. It prevented me from doing a lot of things because I was so self conscious. I was pretty new at being fat and I really didn’t like it.

Things don’t bother me more now, I’m still annoying .

@MIZ60 Have you tried Jane Iredale Lip drink? My sister bought me some years ago when I was going through chemo. I still use it and love the stuff!

B:
Honestly answering this would require a few sessions with my therapist and would take up too much space.
I’m a perfectionist and therefore I’m always stressing about something.
I’m my own worst critic and feel sometimes as if I could’ve always done “something more”.

I short, I’ve always seen the molehills as mountains and losing >100 pounds hasn’t fundamentally changed my personality, though I have many days where I fervently wish it could.

      😫 Hi, I’m new to bariatricpal! I am 8 days post op VSG. I am struggling very badly. I’ve been so emotional because I feel like I’m doing wrong. I’m afraid I’ll eat or drink to fast or eat the wrong thing. I’ve been on Pinterest and YouTube constantly for help. I have followed all of my surgeons and dieticians instructions. I just don’t know if my body is getting enough. Today, I am weak, sore, and just exhausted.

        It passes!! Everyone goes though it! It is a short term emotion! I'm almost five years post op! You made the right decision! Don't focus on the change right now. Try to entertain your mind. What your feeling only last about a week. It's related to your body adjusting and you mind adjusting. You got this!!

      2. SleeverSk

        I agree with Tara it's hard right now but it gets better do t forget your hormones will be all over the place you may even feel depressed. Be kind to yourself reach out and talk to people how you are feeling .

      I know BMI is not the best indication of things in certain situations but I'm happy to share I'm out of the obesity class III category. I'm in class II now. Just 47 more lbs until I'm officially "overweight". Haven't been just "overweight" since I was a kid. "laughs"
