Most grateful for in my city:

I guess that I don't live in one! Nearest "town" had a population of 70 at last count, lol.

I really enjoy going to the cities, but I am always glad to get back home, too. I love the wide open space and the nature all around.

@ms.sss My youngest son has SO MUCH Raptor, Blue Jay, and Hamilton Tiger-cat gear. His stepbrothers live in Ajax and Brampton and his Aunts are in Hamilton.

*It took me a few days to forgive Toronto for beating my team (Milwaukee Bucks) to get to the championship. I’m a fair weather fan, so it was easy to root for Toronto when the games began.

I remember! (that you have family in my neck of the woods :) )

LOL i don't doubt that your son has all the gear. I sorta sorta kinda actually wanted to buy the "Championship Fan Ring" for posterity, but at $5000, Mr. said I'd have to choose between that and actual tickets to games for this season. I'm still figuring out how to get my way and have both...

Day 24: I think I wrote this previously but I am most grateful for Facebook for letting me reconnect with long lost friends and famiy members that I would never be in touch with otherwise. And to be able to see pictures of pets, kids, grandkids etc.

Day 25: As far as the city we live in I am most grateful that it is not as crowded and busy as Austin or Dallas but still has enough going on to be enjoyable. I will never live in a huge city again.

Oh my!! I have a lot of catching up!!

Back to reality from vacay!🥴🥴 Needless to say that it's not been remotely close to a "clean" week!! I was ridiculous surprised that I still lost more weight this past week compared to previous weeks of "clean" eating!! Go figure!!🤷‍♀️🤷‍♀️
The first thing my husband said picking me up at the airport was how much leaner I looked!
My youngest daughter continues to exclaim about my weight loss and to be honest my clothes fit a lot loser......can't explain it, it's a mystery how this thing works because I tell you sincerely, it's not been a clean week AT ALL!

Day 20: What I'm most grateful in my daily life has to be my family and just being alive! I'm constantly in awe of my ability to enjoy the big and little things now!

Day 21: What small item I use in my daily life that I'm most grateful for has to be my phone!! What was life like before that device???

Day 22: Thanksgiving memories: I'll be honest that I teared up seriously from others Thanksgiving memories. Mine is not as profound, just family getting together and sharing love, laughter and definitely the FOOD!

Day 23: What I use on my phone that I'm most grateful for? Hands down will be "WhatsApp". It has made my world very very tiny with distance becoming quite irrelevant! All the people I love scattered all around the world just a text or video message away seeing and hearing things about ourselves in real time either simultaneously or privately

Day 24: Social media I am most grateful for is as mentioned "WhatsApp" which truly probably does not qualify. I'm not on any other social media! Was on FB in the late 2000s and after 1500 "friends", it was too daunting and unmanageable for me. I'm a very private person and just felt relatively "exposed" if that makes any kinda sense.🤷‍♀️

Day 25: What I'm most grateful for in my city is the mountains! At the end of a long day, when driving home, I take stock of my surroundings and I get that sense of awe about the mountains and nature in general and I feel extremely moved and grateful for everything about life. When I drive through my city, I feel like I am driving to my Sanctuary. (I don't work close to home as you can deduce, for me, that's a good thing. It allows me to compartmentalize).

B side question: I am TERRIBLE at moderation! Very very terrible hence why I'm here! When I like something, I overdo it till I'm literally and figuratively sick of it! Still fighting that battle daily and hoping to have it in some modicum of control

Phew! All caught up! My OCD tendencies would not allow me pick up from where I left off

25. The sea. No city here but lovely views.

26. Most grateful for the salad I will have later.

Check in. It turned into a good month...had a happy little spurt of weight loss which was good for my morale. Headed to PA for the rest of the week for friends and family. The gym is part of my plan. I'm grateful today to be reminded that my stomach has limits and I still pay attention.

Happy Thanksgiving in case I don't stop back in.

I haven't been participating a lot lately but I did read some beautiful thanksgiving stories that made me want to cry.

The one about the grandpa with schizophrenia really touched me.

Today's question is what food am I most grateful for today. Well all of them because I am about to embark on a pre op diet. My doc allows meat and veg in the diet but I am going to try to stick to Protein Shakes.

I am having revision surgery 12/4.

Day 26: I'm most grateful for my shredded chicken tostada. I made enough chicken to last until tomorrow (ate this yesterday too). I just didnt want to think about what Im eating until thanksgiving.

So ....... may these tostadas give me the fuel I need to cook and get ready for the big day... the lord knows im going to need it 🙃😆😩

And once again I lost my entire juicy enhanced Protein Shake Breakfast yesterday morning- Gee Whilickers THIS gets so OLD- probably peeve and look like I am ungrateful the powers that be at OSU Bariatric surgery but I want a t-shirt stating " Gastrointestinally Crippled- Slightly" today things are better but I may never be the Poster Child Success I once dreamed of Being- but Still it Is what it is, perhaps like the Biblical Esau I sold my " Birthright" and I now am reaping the whirlwind of THAT decision. But 1/2 the size I started AT...... GOOD..... but I have gone through' Purgatory on Earth" to get There.

      Kind of nervous, as expected. One month out from surgery!

      😫 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"
