  1. Today 5 years ago I had my bypass and it was the best choice I made. Were there ups and downs? Yes but I have no regrets. I was 300 lbs and now 180. I got as low as 150 which was a healthy weight but looked sickly on me. Where I am now, I am happy. I feel and look good. My high blood pressure is no longer an issue. And my fear of getting diabetes has been pushed aside. Tomorrow is my workout day and I am looking forward to going there and staying as fit as I can.
  2. Wow have I been a member since 2012? While no longer active, I still recommend it to others. Always had a ton of support and good information from here. Glad to see it hasn't fallin into bad hands. 

  3. -Moved into the new house mid- January and so happy too! It is much more space and so quite here. It is great to wake up to nothing but sunlight and well, the baby singing to herself in her room. -Husband got a new car which will cost less in taxes and cleaner for the air so that is nice. Also a quite. Never knew how much noise that diesel made over the Prius. -Got my sexy workout clothes at last and........they are in a size small from H&M! I am a small! I really need to keep things up if I am going to stay in those clothes because temptation is everywhere. It is so hard to keep passing that damn candy store, they have mint cookies and I love mint. It is rare to have mint ice cream and cookies here so the fact they sell them makes it super hard. I decided to order some mint extract and try to make my own mint chocolate sugar free cookies.
  4. I brought one and wish I had saved my money. It is collecting dust right now and since I'll be moving shortly I think I might just give it away. I used it a lot at first but now I just use my eyes and trust my gut.
  5. You did what you could, I didn't have a pre-diet. So hats off for even doing it, no idea how I would act on one. Don't beat yourself up because....life post-op sometimes you are going to eat a slice of cake or a hamburger with all the fixing. It happens, learn now to accept it and promise yourself not to just throw in the towel when you make mistakes
  6. I know it is naughty but I want to buy some cute-sexy tight workout clothes. I want to flaunt for just a minute haha! Oh the ideas that pop into my head when I am bored
  7. Nope, still kicking around in my big shoes
  8. I have a friend who uses a sleep tracker to see times she is in REM, slightly awake, awake and other. I am thinking of downloading it because something is off lately with my sleep. I wake up so tired. As I laid awake in bed this morning, dreading getting up, maybe I can keep my son at home today. Just call in sick so I can get some rest. But that would have been a dirty lie. No one is sick, I would have no rest with two active kids in the house and school in important. One thing I do know is that the baby wakes up at 5 am just about everyday. I can hear her crying, go check on her, no she doesn't want water or to be hugged or anything. If I leave her then within 10 minutes or less she is back to sleep. Problem is my husband gets up and makes a bunch of noise. It is an ONGOING issue with him. He is like a damn bull in a chine store. I got to get this man to be more quite at 6 am.
  9. Had two very large tumors removed from my abdominal, tons of scar tissue and nope. No problems. I say my WLS looks like somebody poked me with a fondue fork while the tumor removal looks like a butch.
  10. I am a stay at home mom and my son loves pop music. I am getting to the point where new music just doesn't do it for me anymore. I like happy music
  11. Ok this sucked, it had been a while since I had some mashed potatoes then I had a carb crash. WTH! One of my favorite meals is baked chicken, mash potatoes and corn. I mix it all up and eat it, it reminds me of my childhood. Funny enough I don't get a crash when I eat sweet potatoes.
  12. Amy dresses sexy too, her white dress she wears when she goes out if Kif? But I get wanting to be Cookie too. If you have done the group thing for years then I think you have more than earned a chance to go out and do your own thing. One time won't hurt.
  13. The school thankfully has addressed the bullying issue and is trying to stop the kid from picking on my son. They also told us that if there is ever a problem report it. Don't feel bad about it even if it is everyday or every week, tell them. My husband and me were both bullied in school so we are trying not to let our past affect our son. Times are different now and being a bully is not accepted. School have active policies to handle situations like this. My husband wanted to put our son in judo. I told him that in judo you learn not to us it outside of the gym. This isn't some 80's movie buddy. This other kid is only 7, there is a chance for him to learn to control himself. My son also has to learn that he can tell us when there is a problem but also his teacher. If he tells her right then then something could be done right away.
  14. LOL..... once you are a year or two out this will be nothing to you. Really.
  15. Today was not a good day as a parent. Baby woke up at 5 am...crying off and on all day. Son is being bullied at school. I walked past the ice cream shop across the street and I wanted to stop in and just treat myself. I felt... like a earned it. I have put up with some much, kept calm as much as possible. I earned a damn ice cream. I went to a friends house, had some tea and vented. I went home and made dinner early. Sometimes I give in, not perfect but today I didn't. Now, about that bullying..
