Day 28: What about your home are you most grateful for?

I am most grateful that we were able to pay off the mortgage this past April so I no longer have a house payment. When we bought it 15 years ago I am so grateful that interest rates were low enough that we could do a 15 year mortgage. Makes thinking about retirement so much easier when I know we have a secure, comfortable home that belongs to us.

Happy Thanksgiving to all!!

Happy Thanksgiving - Day 28- rather relsted- I got my Metro approval in the mail yesterday- Still have to endure a Orientation lecture next week- if rotten non- compliance landlord. still refuses to lower rent(2/3rds of my monthly Social Security is Excessive) after Today I can recall places- don't have one designated area development here for Metro- eligible but there are a few. rental complexs that will ACCEPT- now to find one Small Pet friendly, senior slightly handicaped, like no steps to climb, that is looking forward to 2 non- drinkers, smokers, drug- free, quiet non- drivers near designated bus/taxi routing- Don't Ask Much , do I? Be nice if there was laundry access, one nice thing about here was kitchen appliances, washer/dryer furnished and I didn't have to pay for Water, sewer or refuse pick-up. But it was small, 2nd BD so small it should have been mud or storage room with no closets to speak of. Still I am getting Too Old to look forward to uprooting AGAIN but IT IS WHAT IT IS and I am getting tired of the FIGHT. Now that I AM Smaller if landlord wants to "Kick- box" I have the mobility to go a few rounds if necessary. Stay Tuned and if There is an Update, you know I Tell All!

Day 28.

Thanksgiving day!! We are out of town with family and the shock and aww about my weight loss got to embarrassing proportions[emoji57] It was very complimentary but I felt the need not to call more attention to myself by being extremely selective about what I put on my plate. So I put a tablespoon of everything on my plate, played around it a bit, ate only my delicious Turkey (albeit Fried rather than baked as this is how we do it) and gravy. A forkful of other things a restriction kicked in. I must have been liberal with cranberry sauce as I got that mini dump reaction that comes with instantaneous fatigue and need to lay down which I did and took a VERY long nap[emoji54] That's my Thanksgiving story[emoji28]

Things in my home that I'm thankful for? I think it's been said already...the fact that I have a home that I absolutely adore!! A home that feels safe.....so I am thankful for the safety of my home! Both the emotional as well as the physical safety of my home. [emoji176][emoji176][emoji176][emoji176]

Hope everyone had a fantastic Thanksgiving 🧡

What about my home am I most grateful for? It's fairly food free status. All I have are Jenny Craig meals in my fridge and Protein Shakes on the table. I also have some Atkins bars that I thought were Protein Bars. Turns out they are more like candy. Oh well nice try on my part! they will have to go. But they are delicious.

What bill am I most grateful to pay? The bill for my surgery. I hope ithe bill doesn't scare me too bad when it comes.

Day 29: I am grateful that we are able to pay all our bills and not have credit card or other debt. We do occasionally use a 6 month no interest thing on big purchases (most recently 10 tires) because I hate paying interest.

Well I have really enjoyed this challenge even though I have failed miserably. Weight this morning was 212.4 and I only went alcohol free on 3 days. I did stay within my 4 ounce limit with only a few deviations though. I am just too weak....

Day 27: I’m most grateful for our diversity. I grew up in a very mixed city and was influenced by many different cultures and backgrounds. I love the unity we have!

Day 28: I’m thankful just to have a roof over my head and the people I share it with. A home is not a home without the ones you love and I’m grateful for them. Thanksgiving was a nice reminder of that.

Day 29: My car payment! I’m still paying it but I’m glad I’m able to afford afford it and not be in debt. I can’t wait until it’s over lol

      😫 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 .
