Goal Weight:135.0 lb
following: Stevens Vertical Sleeve Gastrectomy Diet
performance: losing 1.0 lb a week

I've been up and down the diet scale all my life. My baby pictures show a HUGE baby but I was slender up until my mid teens when the weight battle began. In the past two decades I've lost my entire excess weight twice, but I regained it both times. I hit my top weight of 258 in February of 2013, and for a 5'3" woman, that was extreme. It was at that time I decided to have the bariatric sleeve gastrectomy. I had to delay the surgery until December, and as of Feb 4, 2014, have lost almost 50 lb. (some before the surgery). My main problem right now is getting in my water, since I feel full all the time, but I don't regret the surgery at all. It is changing how I look at food for the first time in my life, which I believe will prevent me from regaining once I've lost the weight.

Work Potluck
You are so right, Mummydee. I always determine beforehand what I will and will not eat before going, and take along a little snack (cheese stick, handful of nuts, etc) in case I am tempted beyond my decisionmaking. Stand far away from the buffet table and get involved in the games or with dancing. Keep a glass of water in your hand.

Menopause
I've started menopause late, it seems (I'm 61), and only in the past couple of years have had hot flashes, mostly as night sweats. For me, they only last a couple of minutes at a time, and I keep fans handy (one in my purse, one at my desk, one next to the couch, one next to the bed). I don't know if I actually need to take anything for it, but I'll look into the Black Cohash. Thanks for the tip!

Rethinking weight loss
I saw today a flier for a yoga studio that advertises for weight loss. What I found interesting is that they don't call it "losing weight," but "releasing pounds." It made me think about the negative connotations of "losing" versus the very powerful term "releasing." To substitute the word "releasing" means to actively allow your fat to leave your body. We hold on to weight for different reasons, many of them emotional, and to work on this aspect rather than simply the food aspect might help to change the relationship we have with food. What do you think?

Bill, your experience with dreams is very much like meditation. In that, you detach from your normal thought processes and concentrate on the now, and you learn to look at your thoughts and behaviors with curiosity and dispassion rather than judgement and condemnation. I also dream a lot, and I find my dreams are starting to reflect the same thinking I have been trying to develop during the day.
