learning to discern [userpic]


I wanted to say hi and introduce myself to this great community. I just found it and am very excited! I had lap RNY surgery on 4-19-06 so am a little over 5 months out. I am down 90 lbs so far and have about 100-120 or so to go (depending on which goal I look at, mine or my doctor's). I don't regret this decision I've made for a second, and have to remind myself not to look back at the past and think of all the time I wasted being morbidly obese.

My biggest challenges right now are getting in enough protein, cutting down on the snacking, and being more motivated about exercise! I try so hard to get in about 45-50g of protein per day, but it's hard. I also get sick of thinking about it so much.

I hope to learn lots here, and gain some well-needed advice and encouragement from all you post-opers as well.

This community is here to provide a resource for those who want to embrace a healthier wls lifestyle.

Who this community is for:
This community is for those who have had wls and are working to continue a healthier lifestyle. Topics will focus on wls related issues, support, answering questions, and helping and encouraging each other to maintain a higher quality of life through good nutrition (wls-based), and exercise. We're not perfect, and this community is here to help each other along this journey. This community is for those who have already had wls and are looking to maintain the healthier lifestyle. We had this surgery to be healthier, to live longer, and to look/feel better. It easy to fall off the bandwagon, so to speak, and here you will find the support and community strength to help and learn from each other.

Who this community is not for:
This community is not for those who are just researching, considering, or working towards wls. wls is a great community for that. There are people in all stages of their wls journey there and is a wonderful resource.

This community is moderated and hopefully most of the posts will be friends only. This is to create a more open environment and avoid lurkers and trolls who are here for the wrong reasons. We want this community to be supportive, comfortable, and for those in it not to be embarrassed to discuss anything that has anything to do with wls and life after wls. If you have any questions, please contact one of the moderators.

If you'd like to join this community and are a post-op who has had wls (of any kind), click here or click on the join community link at the top of the profile page. Right now, membership is moderated and if we don't know you and don't know if you are a post-op, we might not be able to approve you! So if you'd like to join, please post something about yourself here and don't forget to include when you've had your wls!

If you apply for this community without commenting and letting us know you're a post-op, we won't be able to approve you for the community, so don't forget!

Thank you! :D

So in the past few weeks I've been thinking about restarting my diet a little. I feel like I've come to a stand still with things. So I started today back on the full liquids. Next week I'll go soft food and then the week after that I'll start on real food again. Hopefully that will jump start things alittle.

We'll see.
