  1. What a great post! Thanks for sharing your experiences, insights and pictures! I predict when you are 75 you will be like the 70 year old French people you met walking. I think you've found the right balance of enjoying life/food/drink and taking care of your health and pouch. I hope you stick around TT for a long time as you are and will be an inspiration to many!
  2. Love the dress with your Docs! You have great style.
  3. Love that you are calling this an Odyssey! (Journey [the word, not the band] is over played and needs to be retired.)
  4. She was super active when I joined TT and got a lot out of her posts. I will spend some time checking out the blogs this weekend. Thank you!
  5. I've never paid any attention to the blog section of this site and I just realized I'm missing out! Great post and congrats on all your NSV! I love the photo of you on top of the rock!
  6. I have a trainer. I've had several over the years. I either meet them through the gym or get a referral from someone I know. My two cents is find someone who will really listen to you and not just give you their standard routine. Also, most trainers want to talk about nutrition. That doesn't work for me. Talking about food makes me want to eat and then my inner rebel kicks in and I act like a brat. My current trainer doesn't listen to me when I tell her my tendinitis is flared and I need to avoid certain upper body exercises. So, in two weeks when my package of sessions with her is finished, I
  7. Thanks for the shout out. I am not awesome but I will take the compliment! I vote you join the gym and don't worry what other people think. Do both cardio and strength training. I don't love exercise while I am doing it but I feel fantastic after. It is a good stress reliever for me and after working out I'm always less tempted to over eat or eat things that aren't on plan. I've been going to the gym my entire adult life. I can't recall a time someone at the gym ever said something rude or tried to embarrass me. Everyone is at the gym for the same reason, to get in better shape. Plus, there ar

    @BurgundyBoy, you summoned me? Premier is my favorite shake too. I also use some of the Nectar ones. My favorite are chocolate, vanilla or cappuccino mixed with decaf coffee and milk. I like the tropical flavor in water or yogurt and some of the other fruity ones in yogurt. Texture is important to me. Some of the other brands are too thick for me.
  9. Sorry to hear you are having trouble with dairy. Just because you have trouble now with it, you may not always. I am veg and have been for 25 years. I don't eat seafood. I have had no problem getting enough protein post WLS and my surgery was 3.5 years ago. I do have a shake everyday. I also travel with moon cheese, nuts, protein bars, powders and shakes. For me, it was not an option to eat any kind of meat post-wls. I frequently look at menus online before I eat out and know what I am going to order in advance. If I know the best I can get is a salad that will be low on protein, I will supple

    Feeling depressed..

    You will attract the kind of guys you want to attract. Hang in there. You will find someone who loves you for who you are on the inside. Not the outside.

    I measure: Neck Chest Upper arm Wrist Waist Hips Upper Thigh Calf Ankle I make sure to weight myself and take a pic on the day I take my measurements too. I measured recently and I've lost 101 pounds and 49.75 inches. I didn't really think my wrist or ankle would go down but they have.
  14. Congratulations on your weight loss!
  15. Congratulations!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
