    Congratulations!! Good Luck on your NEW Journey, wishing you a Speedy Recovery........
  8. its coming! I lost 5 the first week. It was easy during the week I just did two high protein slim fasts and then a ww meal and a big salad for lunch. The weekend was hard more time and all so I did a shake for breakfast and then a salad with some grilled chicken for lunch and dinner. I just made sure my weekend shakes are lower calorie from my weekday shakes so I am still at 600-700 calories.

    They didn't give me a number to lose, they just said "as much as possible." The diet wasn't so bad yesterday and this morning I have my pre-op testing (about 3 hours) and I'm not sure what'll happen. I'll post it later. Have a great day!

Is this really happening??

by tartie_pants on 06-13-2013 at 08:28 PM
It is so weird. I am not starving. I am not struggling. I am just living and I am losing. My whole life weight loss has been a battle and struggle but it isn't now. I just feel amazing and happy and gah!!!

I am now down to 222 lbs. I am hoping that by next week I will hit the 70lbs mark. I am also starting to workout and run again.

I am so freaking sick and tired of people. Seriously, who died and made them all doctors. Shut your traps about my tummy and may food and my reactions. When YOU have your surgery come talk to me, Until then just shut it and cheer me on. If you don't intend to change ANYTHING about YOUR lifestyle while I go through this they you REALLY need to shut it. GRRRRRRR

Why yes I have totally had it today. I have had it with my SO and her family constantly going out to eat. I am tired of all

I want foooooooooood

by tartie_pants on 04-21-2013 at 09:45 PM

Let's get the good out of the way first. Down 45lbs since I started my pre-op diet. Down 25lbs since surgery and on track to be down 50 by the end of the week. That would mean -50lbs in 9 weeks. *cabbage patch*

Now to the down side. I want food so freakin bad. I want to eat something other than a frackin sweet potato, cottage cheese, yogurt or another frackin smoothie.

I don't even want "bad " food. Like some sashimi would be awesome possibly

I Love to Hate You

by tartie_pants on 04-13-2013 at 03:12 PM
So I have always had a love / hate relationship with food. In the past it was I love food and hate myself for loving it. Now it is really love / hate about food and it is getting in the way of my moving forward.

This is the deal, I started adding soft foods to my diet and it hasn't been a rousing success. I have been miserable with the "mama birding" . So a large part of me doesn't want to eat. Then there is the other part of me that is so frakin sick of the foods I can

And the Addiction Decides to Say Hello

by tartie_pants on 04-04-2013 at 11:12 AM
So last night the evil little addiction voice decided to come out. It wasn't that I made a bad choice, it was that I lashed out at my partner when she questioned why I was making that choice. I'll get into the details later, but after thinking about it I realized why I lash out. It has nothing to do with good choice / bad choice it has to do with any questioning of my choice period. Food is the one thing I feel like I have control over. I have spent my life being a good soldier and doing things
