  1. Learning Still

    Thanks "Bellamoma." Like most people here, I just want to be my healthiest and happiest self. I can not microwave process. I really wish that it was possible. At least, I am to letting go of guilt.
  2. Learning Still

    Thanks you all! I am continuing to grow in my faith. My husband and I are closer than ever. I have forgiven myself for blaming myself. I am walking around the mall and feeling blessed.
  3. Back in the Gym

    "Burgundyboy" haha about the ghost weight. I am loving my new lifestyle. I get to workout with the coolest people from around the world while traveling. Congrats to you too! This indeed is a great time in our lives!! Safe travels
  4. Back in the Gym

    I am now training for my first 5K. I never liked running even as a child. However, something in my body is pushing me to run. Wow
  5. I’m half the man I used to be!

    Great job Tom! You got it done!
  6. Back in the Gym

    What is also working for me? "Slowing down while eating." I am using my fitbit, putting my fork down after each bite and stopping after the first sign of being full "usually after 3 bites." I am dedicated to walking and workout. I am not the perfect sleeved person. However, I am working forward each day. My sleeve still works. I just needed my head to realize this fact. I lost 6 pounds over the last few weeks! The scale is still my friend.
  7. Back in the Gym

    Being in the gym is helping my physical and mental health. After 3 years, I finally looked at my saggy skin. It is just a reminder that I have dropped a little person off my body. I am basically a "deflated balloon." This is a journey that will continue for the rest of my life. There is not a set end point when I can say "I got this" it will always be "I am living this" with goal/achievements along the way. This is my sleeved life!
  8. Back in the Saddle

    Great job Liz! Keep going forward on this journey of weight loss and improved health.
  9. Back in the Gym

    I am in love with the burn. I just know my life is better with excise. When I cannot workout my body/mind let us just say "I feel like crap." I travel for my job too! Now, I look for hotels with the best gyms verses the best bars!
  10. Back in the Gym

    I had a blast. Yes, I was in pain that night. Lol However, for these last (40) pounds I need to lose excise is required. My body has set this weight. I am still overweight. I refuse to grow older fat. I have to "keep on moving." Thanks you all! I will keep posting!
  11. Taking control of my weight-loss includes exercise. I love the gym and weight lifting. I stoped for several months due to a lot of issues. I am back. It feels great to have hope. I will get on the scale every two weeks!
  12. The last three years I have learned so much about my life with food. My journey with my sleeve continues to be challenging. I am use to helping other people solve their problems and find balance. I never got help/healing for my own issues until recently. Being overweight is a symptom of a deeper issue. I have naturally built layers of protection. I was abused as a young child. What is helping me to start back to working on me? The love of my husband who told me "It was not your fault." Living with guilt can be killer. This sleeve is a tool. I am relearning how to use mine. .

    I wrote this a few days ago. I thought it was posted. Things are better as of Friday. Life will never be the same! The stores around my house are closed. We still have power and water. My family is locked in the house due to the car died. It is still raining tonight. When this is over we will find a new normal. This really sucks! Oh, my husband just got out of the hospital on Saturday. This is indeed some crazy stuff. I have only lived here 18 months. My life has changed forever. At least my sleeve is safe. Stay safe Smashlee83.

    For me this is new. Days of heavy rain and wind. I live just outside of Houston near Galveston. I have never been in a storm with so many Tornados attached. Tonight, at times it is like someone is pouring buckets of water on my roof. However, we are inside and dry. Thank you God.
