    Re: 3 Years 3 Months Post-Sleeve. Struggling!

    Thank you for that. I feel out of control. My biggest fear is gaining back the weight. I feel like I live in a state of fear about it. I am in counseling and working through the head games. Anyone...

    Re: Smart BMI

    I think the most important thing I have learned from this is that we all have negative self talk! I should celebrate the weight I have lost and not dwell on what I have put back on. I am going to...

  8. I am doing better than I give myself credit for.

    Sometimes the best motivation is looking back at what you were compared to what you are. I needed that reality check. I know I can get over this last hump. I should get one more picture from the...
  9. Re: I NEED to do it, but I'm struggling with WANTING to do it

    oh gosh! I hope you don't think I was being negative! I just wanted to give a viewpoint. It really was the best thing I have ever done for MYSELF. I am a new person, and my life has changed. I am...
  10. Re: I NEED to do it, but I'm struggling with WANTING to do it

    I think there is safety in having what we already know. The unexpected and the drastic change is really hard to get your head around. You do have to WANT it because it isn't easy. It is one of the...

    Re: I need some support

    thank you. Yeah. I need to get practical and not think so extreme. I need to exercise. I need to cut down on carbs. I need to stop when I start to feel full. I need to drink water.

    Re: I need some support

    YES. Exactly. What a strange fear huh?
    It is like I set myself up for failure because I need to be constantly losing weight. Who am I without that?!?

    I am also going to...
