I just had to hop in here. I, too, had my gallbladder removed after a huge weight loss. I had lost about 80 lbs, and all the sudden, my gut was WRENCHING in the middle of the night ! EXCRUCIATING ! I finally called the doc - at the urging of my Husband - to which he told me A) I am a woman B) I've had kids and C) I've lost a lot of weight ! WHAT ??? Here I am thinking my body should be working GREAT, but --- yes, as many here have replied, the low fat -- throw some fat in -- tends to cause these issues.

Meanwhile -- I have had issues with having to GO (right away) with certain foods, but it is definitely better than the agony I was in before.

My only regret is that instead of continuing my hard work on the weight loss, I got married just prior to my surgery, which has caused so much stress (going on 4 years of marriage in December - and 10 years together WHEEE) AND the fact that I decided to make it a personal challenge to make sure I can continue to eat the things I want. (mind trip ! UGH !)

Had I just continued with my weight loss plan, and water and exercise, I wouldn't be back up to my original weight.

Anyhow -- I am inspired by you all, here, and am so glad to be back.

Bless you all !

I'm good...
It's all about forgiveness.

We all must forgive ourselves and move on.

It's really just a head trip !


Anyhow ~ I did my Wii Fit yesterday, and WOW ! My arms and upper back/shoulders are SORE !!! They got a GOOD workout. YAY !


Today, is bottoms. lol ! Smile

I love this site, and am working hard at making the good choices again. Last night I slipped a bit, but I also realized today that I can also chalk that up to part of the extra 35 a week... but.... no more. Wink

Tonight, we are going to my favourite place, SWEET TOMATOES ! I am excited.


LOTS of great choices there...

BE WELL and don't forget to FORGIVE !

I am back !
Okay, so my teenager wanted to go to lunch, and he wanted to go to BWW. I asked him sweetly if we could go to Sweet Tomatoes instead, but he REALLLLLLLY wanted to go to BWW. I chose the lunch lineup with the 8 boneless wings, and had extra celery instead of fries with extra hot sauce instead of dressing. I only had less than half of the wings and brought the rest home for my hubby.


That was good. I was and am full, so I feel good knowing that I made a decent choice... Altho next time I will just go ahead and order the chicken strips (grilled) and have that instead with the sauce.

Eh, not bad.

At least I stopped when I was getting full and took notice of my appetite instead of gobbled the whole thing as I had been the past few months. ugh...

I have been thinking through my desire to aimlessly "munch" as well again... This is a habit I have to learn to break once again, but I will do it.

I am back !
Okie dokie...

So here I are...

I am ready to start anew.

So, here we go !


I am going to work on tracking and minding my hunger instead of my desire.

I have really just let it all go, and it ain't pretty ! Wink

SO ---- back to work for me !

I am sorry I left the site behind for awhile, I was too ashamed to face that I have been blowing it...

Please forgive me, and I will work on forgiving myself as well.

My plan is to start out back on my Wii Fit for now.... and working on eating well again. Drinking more water again, and just forgiving myself for letting go like I did. I changed my Goal to 165 for now. I think 140 was seeming a bit too much for me. But the 165 would make me happy. I also want to work on the 10% again from here. So, I initially need to lose about 22 pounds to get back on track. I CAN DO THIS !!! I DID IT ! I CAN DO IT AGAIN !

I want to remember how good it felt to be in a size 16 again !!! I WAS THERE ! The good part is that I can do this again just like before. So, I am looking forward to having great success as I did a few months ago.

No more excuses, and time to DEAL with the emotions, instead of eat them away. Wink

K, I hear a Wii Fit calling me...

love ~

peanut butter nutty buddy
I found a delicious alternative... It is called NATURALLY MORE.

It actually has FLAX in it and it is really quite good !

I found it at a Walmart in rural Missouri, but the website has places you can find it as well. Check it out:

Another thing I have been using is Maranantha Natural Almond Butter.... It is so good and natural. A schmear on your banana or in a smoothie is delicious... and you get the flavour and don't have to overdo it...
