  1. Yesterday was my official food funeral day. I ate without borders;steak, wine, more steak, more wine.I was great and I said good bye to it all while I ate. I woke up this morning feeling crappy as I have been eating pristinely of late in preparation for surgery. Yesterday was a great one last reminder how crappy I can feel on that food. Today I begin the official post op diet. I feel ready emotionally and with water bottle in hand, I press onward.

Sleeved or not sleeved:
I have had a gastric sleeve.
I am mid 50's, 10 years out of a bad marriage. Sometimes I feel like a child getting to live her own life finally on her own terms.
On the path to Gastric sleeve, I have ortho issues and metabolic issues. all which should be improved with a sleeve. If not, losing some weight should be an improvement in itself.

I had surgery 1/18/17 and had the best experience.
New England

Moving on

by peasantme on 03-26-2017 at 09:26 AM
So now that my MD worked out a good food plan for me, I can put my frustrations aside and get to the work of making the most of this. I love solutions and the moving on part.So morning yoga is slowly morphing into more with additions. I have added strenthening exercises and ballet stretches. I do a solid 30+ minutes each morning. I can't wait for the weather to warm so I can work outside. Being so heavy has impeded my ability to do yard work. This year should be awesome!

And if anyone

Years ago I lost weight, got my diabetes in control and became a runner. I went from 260 down to 210. I was in an online group. I was there every day reading, responding and posting. They became my mentors, my sounding boards and the ones who picked me up when I wanted to give up. The internet can be awesome for that.

Then bad stuff happened, years passed, my life changed, and I no longer have that support. And I gained a bit opf weight back.

And here I am post sleeve

Food and plans

by peasantme on 03-19-2017 at 11:17 PM
Starting back to work, I have done well avoiding the cafeteria, the snacks, etc. A few times a healthy choice came along and although it was ok for me to eat it intead of my planned food, it still felt like I fell off the wagon. Although the shrimp on greens was a good choice, It wasnt my plan, I ate too much of it, had the high calorie dressing and I regreted not eating what I brought. It still felt like I fell off the horse so to speak.

I need to not only make my food plan in the

Back to Work.

by peasantme on 03-08-2017 at 10:58 PM
I am doing fairly well back at work. I am surrounded by food there, including fresh baked goods by staff. I brought my own soup which was planned. I managed to avoid the cafeteria. I managed to not join staff in ordering out, even though they choose my favorite healthy place, I stuck to my plan. Even when other staff came to work later with fresh baked pie, I caved and had a large bitefull but did not have a slice.

I think I did ok overall. It is harder to stay motivated when you
