Right now I am working on not taking this tool for granted. I weigh about once a week and try to maintain an online food diary at http//:www.sparkpeople.com
My weaknesses are that I am a lazy ass who hates to exercise and I haven't done well in that area.
I also smoke and drink coffee which I know are no-no's.
My strengths are that I am somewhat self-aware and can usually recognize a self destructive eating habit quickly before it gets out of hand.
I am--though not perfect about it--at least consistent about taking my vitamins and logging my food.
On an emotional level, I am petrified of gaining my weight back. I know that a certain amount of bounce back weight is expected. If I were to gain it all back, to be perfectly honest, I don't know if I have it in me to lose it yet again. I would be miserable, embarrassed, and deeply disappointed in myself.
This is the most weight I have ever lost and kept off for this long.
Here's a link to my story if you are interested.
Does anyone know if Split Pea Soup is a good lunch as a post op? I really like it, but it's hard for me to tell how they make it if I just buy it out of a large crockpot at the store. Any idea of protien content?
pros and cons:
I joined LA Weight Loss today. They seem to think I can lose 80 pounds in 40 weeks. I know I can. Now I feel back on track.
Has anyone expierenced sleeping problems after the surgery? I'm so tired for the past few months. I could sleep 11-12 hours if I was able, but most times I can't because of work.
I've been wearing this bra that I bought from Lane Bryant and I think that I should tell people about it. It's the Bra 6. It keeps everything up where it should be and also helps keep my body suit up and snug. It is almost 50$ when tax is added in, but it's worth everything. The back strap, unlike a regular bra has two sets of three rowed hooks. This bra has gone down in size with me as I've lost weight. I recomend it highly for anyone who'se looking to keep thier twins up and natural.
I've moved up to walking two miles a day! Ok, so tonight was the first night of it, but still, I wasn't exhausted when I got home, and didn't fall out, so I won't be going backwards and walking less. I'm just so amazed that "I" can walk that far. Me...the fat girl of the family! It's making for a great night. Now I'm off to drink a protein supplement.
So the barix clinic called and canceled my check-up. I'm about 9months out. (omg >_<) Then I asked if i could reschedule. (Cause that'll be the next logical step) And I was told that there are no more appts until after December. wtf? So I'm a little upset...but not that much because I can always have my regular doctor just check the bloodwork. I mean...she's the one that takes it anyway. I found out what they're mainly looking at (my B12 and protein) so I'll let the doctor know that.
When, in your opionon or experiance, is a good time to start looking into plastics? I ask because I'm at 240 and my goal is 180. I don't know if I neccisarily want to wait until I'm at my goal to start looking into getting it. Also I can't tell on my body what is still fat and what is just extra skin. Because...baby do I have alot of extra skin.
