    Finding my limits

    I had some puppy chow this week (cereal coated in chocolate, peanut butter and confectioners sugar) and didn't need dinner. It made me feel very weird! High sugar and fried foods at first just make me feel really full but then gross... We are always learning new ways to participate!

    NSV of the Week - whats yours?

    I am preparing to move 12 hours south in October and tonight was a company outing at a baseball game. There is a Ferris wheel that I have wanted to ride for years but never would out of fear I would embarrass myself because I was too big. I checked it off the list. And the entire thing didn't come crashing down!

    I stuggle with my ankles too! How are they not going down with the rest of us? You are rocking this!

    Of all things that are getting too big...

    Yes! I keep hoping that 80's look of showing most of a shoulder comes back in!
  5. Yay for all the positive! My iron was too low at the last blood drive I went to so I'm jealous you are out there being healthy and saving lives!

    I finally went to see my grandma

    All the feels. Hugs to you with tears in my eyes. Any visit to a nursing home takes a ton of positive self talk to get me to get out the car. This is such a beautiful memory for you to carry with you.
  7. Ugh, me too! But I'm willing to say yes to invitations anyway, I used to say no to anything when it was too hot because I knew I would flop sweat, over heat and get light headed. As I long as I hydrate now, I can attend multiple parties at 90+ degree days. I love being more adventurous in going to new places because I'm less self conscious, I can fit in all the booths and chairs now. Crossing my legs is also on my list. Message me if you have specific questions, I see our start weights are in the second range. This board is great support.

    Slight weight gain. Help!

    Totally water weight. It seems if I have a fun weekend mine will jump Monday and settle back where it goes by Wednesday. Have a couple low carb days with higher water intake and you'll be back in your sweet spot! Awareness is key!

    Oooh, a big derby hat! It would be fitting today!
  10. Thank you so much for your bravery posting the pictures. This helps me mentally prepare for what might be in my future. Also, no drains sounds great! My thoughts are with you as you heal.

    I'm from a really tiny town so we go in waves. This year i will have 3 weddings. Some years it is 5-6! Oh the bra shopping was a nightmare. I hadn't tried strapless since I was a 46 bust. Went to Lane Bryant and tried three styles...and about nine sizes. I was exhausted but I think they will stay put! The experience definitely put a check in the "I need to get these fixed pro column." My husband was terribly confused by the whole thing as I kept going up and down to find the right combination of band and cup since they didn't have the one I needed in the style I wanted. Thank goodness it was 40% off, so was everything at ON!

    Another wedding next weekend...and I'm back for advice. Does this work for an outdoorsy, casual event? Old Navy size XL. Blows my mind this fits...

    Rewiring of brain

    I went to dinner with family at an Italian restaurant last night. They had the specials listed with a lunch price and serving size that didn't come with soup or salad. I was so excited! I tried the sausage and ravioli and it was delicious. I ate the few I wanted to satisfy my craving and my husband finished it. I wish more places would do something like that! It makes the amount I eat seem more normal and I'm not spending twice as much on food I won't eat. I'm over 2 years out so ravioli is occasionally on my treat list and this was great for me. I travelled for work most of this month and my coworkers commented on how little I eat...and I marveled at how much they consumed. It was hard to not take all my leftovers and seemed so wasteful...

    Happy Easter! And it snowed here in the Midwest, so I didn't get to wear skinny jeans and flats...had to settle for boots. New top and cardigan from Maurice's and my Nickle and Suede white cork earrings were the highlight of my outfit!
  15. I have a sleeve but my program has the same requirements for either surgery. When I wake up, I take a Centrum Adult multivitamin and krill oil. 9am Celebrate calcium chew 11am Celebrate calcium chew 2pm Centrum Adult multivitamin 4pm Celebrate calcium chew I'm over two years out and still use alarms on my phone, I get very busy at work and it would otherwise be forgotten. I am down to once a week for the sublingual B12, my blood work is always high so each year they have backed it off. I also used to need iron and vitamin D, but those numbers are all in the normal range now and I don't take anything extra. I like that I'm on an OTC multivitamin approved by my program, I feel like it saves money and my blood work is great. Good luck!
