  3. Stay on plan and you'll get to where you want to be. I think most folks lose patience, but it isn't a race, it's a rest-of-your-life effort and enormously worth it!
  4. Hard to believe that I'm down one more pound today. 192 this morning. Hang in there folks and it will be a lifetime achievement.

      Great job Tom, but don't get too skinny.  :D

  5. I don't sleep nearly as well as I did when I was 165 pounds heavier. Trazadone has helped over the past six months, but it feels like a trance as opposed to restful sleep. It has helped my mood considerably along with switching up antidepressant meds.
  6. Another new low, 195 this morning. It will be 4 years on Tuesday.

      Another 6 pounds, Geoff, but it really doesn't matter. That will bring into "normal" BMI, though I'm quite happy where I am!

  7. I'm liking this. 197 this morning, and I've set a new target of 189.

  8. If you find the right person to help you sort it out, it's well worth the effort. I see a counselor every 10 or 15 years. I have three good ones, and I've had a couple who weren't the best match, one or two sessions is all I need to know if it's going where I want it to go or not.
  9. The most important thing we all have to do is stay with our plan every day for the rest of our lives. I eat a couple of French fries from time to time, taking them from my grandkids takeout, or a couple of frozen fries when my daughter makes them. I literally mean 2 or 3, and it's about twice a month. I don't eat much of anything anymore, and tend to eat by the clock, just because if I don't get my nutrition in, I feel mentally and physically terrible. This suits me well, being down 155 pounds after 3.5 years is far more important to me than food is. I lost my sweet tooth as well. I don't
  10. It's an everyday plan for the rest of your life, it works if you stick with it.
  11. You can also ask your surgeon how big your restriction is- I did very early out because I need details.

    I got a date!!!!

    Howdy stranger, hope you are well, you've been missed around here!
  13. 3 year followup today with my surgeon. Also met my psychologist informally -- I really like this guy and we connect on many levels. Formal appt next month. Blood tests were the goal of today's visit and they took 8 vials of the red stuff.  I still wonder how they get it out of a blue vein...

  14. Less than 3/4 pound to get under 200!  :D

      I'm up a couple of pounds this morning, I'm not worried, that's just the way things go.

  15. You're vewy vewy quiet Cathy, hunting wabbits? Hope you are okay. I'm doing a 3 year followup with the surgeon next week. I missed the 2 year marker. It's actually closer to 3.5 years, but I need to see blood test results, Something isn't right.
