I sat in a long stall in March, changed my food and weight loss started back up and I started steadily, slowly, safely losing. I felt relieved to figure out my food and my body requirements.I felt relieved to have such great care providers. Weight loss was rolling along again. Then I hit 211. And … Continue reading Adjusting
I may have found a reason I am not losing the way I had hoped. My Endo thinks that being vegetarian (and many years vegan) before surgery, and now my post op diet is meat sourced protein, may not be making my body very happy. So my diet is now officially going back to its home … Continue reading Vegetarians/Vegans and Me
All my life, I have been fat. I have soared up and down the numbers. I have spent my life living on this plateau or that one. But the plateaus, I must say, were more of a range. I would spent a chunk of time weighting 243-246 or 197-203, and so forth. It's as if you … Continue reading The Intriguing Thing about Stalls.
I miss my nightly glass of wine....or I thought so. I kind of do. I decided that I don't really want the wine as much as I miss the lovely glass goblet that contained it. My lovely long stemmed goblet now contains water. And I and my hand are just as happy. Finding solutions to the … Continue reading The real truth.
To those who think I cheated by having Gastric Sleeve, First, you're an ass.... and here's my response to you. Is going to Weight Watchers cheating?

OMG, I am not made for this. I am, sad to say, an ass. You cannot leave me sitting on a plateau on a 10 number. My over-zealous, competitive, focused, driven side kicks in. I find myself thinking... 800 calories... hmmmm... I can do 400. I can drink 12 cups of water, I can work … Continue reading Cant change me
I should have written a post about surgery. but it was overwhelming, exhausting and recovery involved oxy, sleep and days passing that I hardly remember. I will write it at some point but before I give up on a blog that I barely started, I want to jump back in. So please excuse the missing … Continue reading 5 Weeks
My bariatric team said they don't approve of food funerals. Their argument was that there is no food that you need to stop eating, that I will only now eat it in small amounts. This attitude scares me. It scares me that they have no understanding of overeating, trigger foods or the grieving process. How … Continue reading Funerals
As I move forward, I am taking care to add tools and craft processes that will support me in well, I should say after surgery. I like to see this as a new start, a completely new beginning... so these are changes that will support me in my new second half of life.. I found … Continue reading Small Accomplishments
My NP says that food funerals have no place and not a good idea. She says that you never say goodbye to a food, you will simply eat less of it. I see her point and am sure that works for some people. I don't agree and in her saying that makes me feel further … Continue reading Food Funerals
