    Hey there, I read your latest post and want to assure you that you are in control, ultimately. Take it one flippin day at a time, deal with your stress in other ways than eating. Don't fall back into the old bad habits and patterns. You've come so far and if you've come this far, your can do the distance!
    Stop yourself right now and the next time you're tempted to overeat...force yourself to step away and go to the wall and immediately do 10 wall push-ups. Yes...10 wall push-ups. This will get ya thinking and you'll get the benefit as well. Anyhow, the idea is to IMMEDIATELY break your thought pattern and reaction to it.
    YOU ARE IN CONTROL, don't forget that. Your control is what will bring you ultimate success.
    Take care and let us know how things go for you. Prayers to for your situation...

Not in control! AKA I'm screwing up!

by bejeweled on 11-30-2013 at 06:32 PM
Oh God, please...I'll be good, I promise. Please...just go ahead and vomit already.

This was me not five minutes ago, standing over the toilet in my master bathroom, spitting desperately into the toilet as my mouth flooded with mucus and saliva. My stomach is on strike, roiling and festering as I have had too much food (granola) and liquid (diet iced tea) all at once.

I'm trying to do this quietly...I don't want my husband to hear. He will freak out and fuss and he

What a difference a year & 85 pounds make...

by bejeweled on 11-10-2013 at 04:27 PM
I did my semi regular weigh-in this morning and looked with happiness at the scale...85 pounds gone! Woohoo! I am at my halfway mark and such a wild time to hit it as I left on a cruise from Baltimore today.

I am sitting in the Internet cafe now typing this and reflecting on a similar cruise I took last year when I was 60lbs heavier. For Carnival Cruises out of Baltimore, you have to walk up a 4 level ascending ramp to get on the ship. I did it last year but it was a struggle - I

Walked 3.5 miles today!

by bejeweled on 09-14-2013 at 09:10 PM
I am tired! My feet hurt and so do my legs but I walked 3.5 miles today!

Granted, it was broken up: 0.6 miles to the library and back, 0.6 miles in the middle of the annual church picnic, and finally 2 mile roundtrip to explore my city, DC, a little better. I could have done half that distance at my starting weight but not this much. I am amazed, I am stronger than I ever thought I could be!

But now I wonder - what else can I do??

Challenge Accepted!

by bejeweled on 09-06-2013 at 10:16 PM
So, right now I am on vacation with my mom in Hershey, PA. Basically, if not the land of milk & honey, it is the land of chocolate - tons of it and as a decades long confirmed chocaholic (one of my former email addresses had chocaholic as part of my user name), being here just 3 months after surgery is a HUGE challenge for me.

So far, I think it has been going well. I haven't gorged myself on chocolate but haven't feel deprived either because I have had some chocolate but much

If It's Not One Thing, It's Another! Or Who's That Strange Lady?

by bejeweled on 08-21-2013 at 02:54 PM
I am just back from my appointment with a vascular surgeon to try and determine why my left thigh goes 'numb' and feels warm/burning after I walk or stand for a long time. The first vascular surgeon I spoke with, believed that I may have had a blood clot previously which left me with DVT (deep vein thrombosis) so I underwent another ultrasound of my legs today (had a previous one before the IVC filter was installed before the sleeve) so that the second vascular surgeon could take a look.
