  1. Strange since we were pushed to increase our dairy since it has calcium. I was never told to stay away from caffeine either but each plan and doctor has their own ideas. I consume both and have no problems. In fact I had bread and cheese for breakfast with some coffee.
  2. Ok so far, I miss my gym but even if they reopened today I would not go. I try to do daily walks which are nice but not everybody keeps apart which is annoying so I try to walk during morning when most are working from home. My kids school is reopening next week but I will be keeping them at home. I feel kinda like a bad mom because I am taking something social away from them but I just feel it is too early.
  3. You are losing weight which is the goal. Remember the story of the rabbit and turtle?
  4. *brushed off dust* good lawd the maid must have quit and didn't tell me! And I paid her weekly since 2017! The nerve of some people <_<

  5. 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.
  6. 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 While no longer active, I still recommend it to others.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. 

  7. -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
  8. 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.
  9. 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
  10. 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
  11. Nope, still kicking around in my big shoes
  12. 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 does
  13. 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.
  14. 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
  15. 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.
  16. 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.
  17. 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 bud
  18. LOL..... once you are a year or two out this will be nothing to you. Really.
  19. 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..
  20. This is taking time to get used to. Wish there was a clear guide to the changes. I just figured out how to quickly made a blog entry. Grrrrrr....the old system was fine! LOL! People always complain then we get used to it till the next change. Different day, same story
  21. The time will pass quickly as you relearn to eat and get in shape. It'll make carrying that extra baby weight easier since they put pressure on your back, breast, hips and knees. Also the whole giving birth thing! And aftrwards, those car seats are not light.
  22. You will gain and lose over the years, this is pretty normal. As long as you regain some control and don't let it put you in a bad place, you'll be ok. Don't be ashamed for being normal.
  23. My gym membership came with one free hour with a personal trainer. Mine is on Friday. I am a bit worried because I twisted my knee carrying the baby and heavy groceries up the stairs. Sucky timing! I am so happy to move to a normal house. Having to walk up a bunch of stairs to reach the front door sucks.
  24. For two weeks I got to go to the gym on Wednesdays. My son would go to a work-out dance class there while I got a hour to do my thing. I was really looking forward to it but now my mother-in-law asked to watch my daughter every other week than every week. This kinda sucks. Got a gym membership but never get to use it. Thank goodness it is pay as you go.
  25. The first year was a lot of stop and go with relearning a lot! Some lose slower than others and that is a-ok. Just like some of us will never ever like to work out. I am not a fan of the gym. That 5 day thing is just something someone made up. It isn't doctor approved at all so don't worry about it. Do what you can and keep trying need stuff. If you have stiff muscles then a cold shower right after a workout can help.
