Marchies In December



Recommended Posts

Thanks for the warm welcome, Jeni!

Good luck with nursing school--it's a good, and very flexible, career. If you are interested in being a CRNA, make sure you get some clinical time in an ICU and get a job in one after you graduate. Most programs require at least 1-2 years of ICU experience, though the median length of experience in my class seems to be about 5 years.

I'll let you know how school goes...thanks again!

Gwen

Thank You for the Tip... I still got a long way to go..:P

So is everyone ready for the holidays??:P

Hi Everyone, Its been awhile since I posted. I was banded in March and well just hit the 50 lbs down mark only to find out my IUD didn't quite do its job and I am pregnant.. Anyone else from March have an unexpected pregnancy? :faint:

Thanks,

Brandi

Congrats Cuddle!! There are times when I see a baby and wish with all my heart to have another one, then realize that I only have 6 years to go until my last is off to college and decide that I can wait for grandbabies.

Welcome Gkeyt. Looks like you are doing great.

OH Juli-Reading about that boy and with all the pain he must be in just about made me cry that he took the time to give you a pat on the back. He must be one hell of a kid.

Well, had company this weekend and my brain didn't pay too close attention to what was going into my mouth. But my band sure did. I had 2 pb's. One Saturday after taking a big drink to wash down a Trisket, and one Sunday from not chewing a bite of pork chop well enough. They were not that bad, just what I would call "last bite forced exit". I think it's the slimming that gets to me though. That is soooooo gross.

As of this morning, drum roll, 185!!!! 5 lbs in 15 days to hit my goal of 180 for Christmas. I can do it, I can do it!!

Have a great day everyone.

Awe shucks. I started pretty high. Not that I'm not proud...I was happy as could be to see the 100+ in less than a year, but now I need to focus on the what's left to lose.

Actually there's been a shift in my thinking from counting pounds lost to really working on what's left to accomplish.

The band is a fantastic tool!

Way to go Jeni!! Don't it feel good!!

Texas-57 lbs gone, you are doing great!

And I agree with Jmcambra, you are also my hero OH Juli. Not only in weight loss but you are such a supportive person and always have something uplifting to say (even when you are dishing out well deserved and asked for "tough love")

Hello Marchies

I just wanted to stop by and say I hope everyone is coping well with the holidays and staying warm!!! I am just so suprised at how fast the time has passed by since March. I am praying that I can continue to keep up my momentum during these cold months. I have been really intreuged with peoples reaction to my weight lost because everyone always says how good I look, but some times I just see the same person I have always seen. I know I need to do some work on my self preception. Anyhow, I love my band!!!

Happy Holidays

      Yesterday I "officially" eclipsed the 100 lb mark.  I'm sure if you're in any other country than the US, the 45.3 kg mark doesn't sound as much of a milestone, but it's very cathartic for me to post that I hit it. 
      I recently read back through both my BP status updates and my private journal and hitting this milestone makes all the things I "worried" about seem stupid, but I know they're not stupid because they were very real at the time.  Also, I think if I didn't give these fears my full attention, I may not have been as successful as I have been to date.
      I'm about 50 more pounds off my end goal and I know that will not be the end, I will continue to strive for bettering myself in both physical and emotional ways.  I have to hunker down and get this done. 
      I'm noticing if I don't exercise every day, the weight loss stalls quite a bit.  I'm not really into the 80/20 theory with diet and exercise, I think there's a genetic modifier that needs to be applied and it's different for everyone, just my opinion... don't hold it against me.

      RE: the running/training
      Honestly it started with me just doing laps around the kitchen that first post-op week.
      In a week, I graduated to walking up and down my street, then to walking around the block every day.
      The distance increased, then the speed.
      Then I started running little spurts during my walks, then to alternating 1km runs with 1km walks.
      And now I can do a continuous 10k (which I totally did for the first time this morning...so full of myself about it today, it’s disgusting.)
      Just do something everyday and slowly increase speed and duration, next thing you know you’ll be one of those odd “running people” (who I never understood pre-op, but now totally get, lol)
