Goal Weight
145.0 lb

Single after raising a niece and nephew for ten years. They're no longer with me, but the weight stayed... and grew over those years of having them. Being older, I couldn't lose the weight, no matter that I exercised and tried to eat right. I'd lose some, gain more. It'd take a lot more work in my mid-forties to lose a little weight, but so much easier to gain it back.

I wasn't making enough headway. Comments from doctors and other people would send any loss I'd accomplish far away and bring on the depression, and I'd gain it all back. Exercise would cause arthritis in my knee to flare, and the Atkins Diet, which worked so well in my thirties, just caused painful constipation and not much loss weight.

I'd had enough. On October 29, 2013, I had the gastric sleeve operation. That was the best decision I'd ever made. It is still hard work, and to lose, I have to eat right and exercise. It's a very big lifestyle change. BUT, the efforts I'm making are paying off, unlike before the surgery. Logging my food keeps me from eating when I'm not hungry. I've lost enough where exercise doesn't cause injuries (though certain types of exercises do flare the arthritis). I'm so happy that I'm getting healthy and will finally be able to reach my goal weight.

Saying No!
When in a crowd or even just with another person, it is so hard for me to say no! I've had ice cream and pizza today when I went to lunch with a friend, and fish and chips when I took the kids to get food. And I was't even hungry. God please give me the motive, gumption, strength, determination and ability to say, "No!"

Better choices
Glad you made the decision. I hope that both of us will continue to improve our exercise regime. Wishing us both the best.

I've been staying around 158-161. I figure this is my steady weight, which I'm fine with. I lose a couple of pounds when I don't work out, gain them when ...

I didn't weigh in today, because I'm pretty sure I either didn't lose anything or gained some. It's so hard to keep the carbs down. When I do, the weight ...
