    Revelation during support group tonight

    Agreed CJ - the holidays do not HAVE to be scary! I remember last year I was 5 months post-OP for turkey day, so still in full weight loss mode. I stuck to teeny portions (mostly because I wanted to "sample" everything). My sleeve restriction kept me in tow. I had a 2 pound fluctuation after Christmas, but even with that I felt successful for all the food that was being tossed my way. Just keep the protein first mantra ringing in your head, and you will fill up fast.

    Comments from friends

    Hihi @Kio <3 I can so relate to people meaning well in their comments - but feeling weird being told you are "wasting away." Also the thighs (skin) eekz. And the needing smaller sizes - looking at something and thinking NO way will this fit - and it does. It makes me feel better to know that I am not alone in this. And you are not either You have achieved amazing things in the last year. You look great - we see no pudgy in your pics. Great job!
  15. Excellent advice @Cheesehead. One thing that drives me crazy about maintenance is that I tend to be more fanatical about the scale than I was pre-maintenance. I still only weigh once a week, but the fear of regain is so very real. I still find myself "testing" to see what extra things I can eat, and still stay within my 150 - 151 pound window. It drives me crazy, but the fear of failure is so strong, along with my desire to push the limits to see what I can get away with. Not every day is like this, but some days sure are. :/
