  1. Those of you waiting for your surgery, make sure you are ready to make a change. Not following through afterwards can lead to self-hatred and depression.

      the psych eval "should" catch that. I think most just want to push pts through, though.

      Psych evals only catch what one wants them to catch. They are easily walked around, I believe the advice on making sure you're ready is sound advice.

      people aren't necessarily honest in the psych eval. It's easy to tell them what they want to hear.

  2. Hi everyone. I guess it's my random check in. Hope everyone is doing great. Me--not too much. I just realized the reason I don't come around much anymore. While I'm happy for all of you, reading about all the successes just reminds me of all my failures. I'll guess I'll see y'all again at some other random time.

      You can do it!! One day at a time. I have surgery in a little over two weeks and I am a little nervous. Praying for you!

      Nobody ever said this was easy, just get back on the wagon. You did this surgery for a very good reason.

      Kimi you have lost 82lbs in six months! How is that failing?! You are doing so well. So hold your head high and be proud of yourself! We all have bad days, but like everyone said just one day at a time! x

  3. I haven't been active lately. I hope everyone is doing great! After two months of basically failure, I have decided to get back on track. I hope I haven't done any permanent damage. I still need to lose 68#.

  4. Well I haven't been here in a while. Things are still kinda dismal. I still haven't reached the one-hundreds even though I've been under 210 for over a month. I hope y'all are doing better than me.

      Try not to get discouraged, you've come so far. Mine is coming off really slow with lots of stalls. Be proud of what you've accomplished so far!

      Sorry your going through this. Ive been stuck within a 5lb range for over 3 months. Not sure what to do.

  5. Period problems

    So I have PCOS and was taking bc for years to control the craziness. I thought I was going to have surgery in August so I stopped taking them a month before. Well surgery happened in late November. I didn't have a period since stopping bc until last month. It was ok last month. Fast forward to this month. It is a MONSTER! I'm soaking through pads like crazy. Do y'all think I should go to the dr.? I've also been sleeping a lot for about 2 wks. I am not eating and exercising like I should so it could have something to do with it. I just don't know.
  6. I haven't been on for a little while. Not doing too great with my eating. In fact, I found myself today eating stuff to make myself sick. I know I need help, but I just don't want to go to my psych.

      That sounds like I'm having surgery. My mom is having the surgery.

  11. Having a panic attack. I'm all shaky and stuff. Also, mom admitted to hospital. Stress making me really want to eat. I don't know if I'm going to make it through this second day of liquids.

      One day at a time and sometimes one minute at a time helps. Just take a breath and remember why you are doing this so you can be a healthier you. And I'll say a little prayer for you and your mom

  13. I am going to try 2 days of liquid only. I just gained 3 more lbs. I need to get back to restricting the amount of food and my choice of food. I can't fail at this too. :(

  14. I was really sick last night; I'm not feeling too great this morning. I don't know if it is a stomach bug or stress. Oh well. I guess I'll make it through.
