    Feel free to add me. I am on everyday! Love to give and receive support!
  • I am not sure how to add friends etc on here. I am not on facebook but I need help as well. Just reading the few messages that were posted have helped encourage me. I started my fitness pal awhile back and did it for a couple of days. Had some tragic things to deal with the past year and still dealing with them somewhat. I need to lose 100-120 lbs. I am 55 and having some knee problems the last few months. My doctor said I will have to have a replacement but wants me to wait until I am in my 60s. In the mean time I have to get the weight off.

    I know we can do this!!
    After all, its the only body that we will ever have!

    Any of you looking at/have had weight loss surgery?

    I would be lying if I said it hasn't crossed my mind, but I know people who have had both gastric bypass and lap band and it only worked temporarily. Initially they did well, but after about a year- back to old eating habits. A former coworker even had gastric bypass and then after gaining back about 50 lbs went back to have a revision and is again above her ideal weight. My cousin and his wife had lap band done and are now heavier than before the surgeries.
    I also know people who have had success and are maintaining. It ultimately comes down to relationship with food. It is a life saver for some. But it is still hard work.
    So for me rather than having surgery, I decided to change my relationship with food. Surgery will not help me with my emotional/ boredom eating.

    I have heard both good and bad results with the surgeries as well. I am scheduled to have the "sleeve" next week. I have heard some great things. I am also in a complicated relationship with food. I have to be on a liquid diet for 2 weeks prior to surgery. I am currently on day 8 of my liquid diet. The first few days, I was so hungry/emotional/cranky......I felt like I had lost my best friend... Now I am feeling much better. I know there is a thin person somewhere in there. I always joke that if I was thin, I would never wear God made me chubby to keep me out of jail for running the streets nude....hahahaha!!

    I began the pre op diet June 4th, 2014 and had sleeve surgery September 23, 2014. I have lost 100 pounds since surgery and a total of 120 since last June. I still have another 100 to lose but I am confident I can reach my goal. For me, the most important thing is counting calories and carbs and every bite is recorded on MYFITTNESSPAL. I gave up bread, pasta and rice and it really hasn't been too difficult. Now, I am dealing with sagging skin and considering plastics when I reach my goal. The sleeve has changed my life:)

    I hit my highest at the beginning of April (260 lbs.) and I set my goal weight at 160 lbs. It's made all the more frustrating by the fact that at the middle of 2011 I was sitting at about 190. This is a frustrating and challenging road to walk and I'd welcome all the support and friends that want to join me along the way!

    Sadly, I have reached that point where I need to lose >100 pounds.. I never thought I would get here. (being laid off sure doesn't help!). I really have to do something about this. My wife is due with our 3rd child in 2 months (she is 43, 9 year sibling gap, oooops!)... so just another little source of stress. I want to make the most this site.

    Feel free to add me if you wish.

    Anyone is welcome to add me! I'm 44 lbs down and have another 60 to go until I hit my reassessment goal--depending on body composition, I may try to go lower. (My current set goal is still in the "overweight" range for my height.) I'm on here regularly, my diary is open to friends, and I enjoy supporting others. :-)
