No surgeon will revise your surgery for a 25lb weight gain and those butter buds will kill ya

Ice cream is a certain dump for me, more than any other food.  I've tried it maybe 2 or 3 times in 12 + years.  It's not worth feeling like I'm dying

Topic: RE: Vets- How much regain is acceptable to you?

A vet is time served.  They don't have to know **** I can think of at least two looney tunes on here who absolutely are vets, even if they have several screws loose.  Noone said a vet had to be an expert and I know you'd have to mud wrestle those *****es to get their vet card off them. There are also several who are not yet 5 years, but who will get the key to the lounge and a big welcome party (our beloved Grim being one).  "Buyer beware" holds true, even for vets.

If you left it for people to decide for themselves you'd have a ton of "vets" who think they've "got this" at a year out, which we old timers know that is so not true.  I wasn't even in maintenance until I was 4 years out.   I could have eaten bon bons on the sofa until that point.  Living with this surgery in the long term, warts and all, is what makes us vets!

I can remember waiting with great anticipation to join a vet group on here and by the time I was 5 years out, they'd all skipped to Quix.  Some of us found our way back, but most didn't

You get the secret handshake and key to the lounge after 5 years ...  

Weekend retreats are for 10 year vets

No pain meds once I was up and walking the day of surgery and nothing after.  No pain at all

Topic: RE: Don't do what I I did! UGH!

All too common a tale.  We get people here who laugh at those of us who stick around, telling us we have no life.  Welll guess what?  Few of us here have big regains!  Support and accountability are key to LONG TERM success.

You have done the right thing, Cloie74, hang out, post on the What Are You Eating Today threads to see what others are eating,  maybe join the Back on Track group.

You got this!

Apparently, that's a result of the vagus nerve being severed.  That's MY cue to stop eating.

Meat.

For meals and snacks and raw veggies - more filling than cooked.

Water, lots of water ...

I'm on a carb detox (4 days) and I do feel way better today than I did on day one ...

Topic: RE: My Big Fat Fabulous Life! Spoiler Alert! Take 2

For discussion purposes, I actually think Whitney is soooo NOT happy.  Doing the jolly fat girl shtick has got her a show, which was her goal.  She's not good enough to be a dancer (and not just because she's SMO) and the show supports her.   No way she would have got a show if she were fat and miserable (like some, if not most of us were)

I think as soon as the show ends, if she's not dead, she'll have WLS.   She'll never lose the 200lbs + she's overweight by diet and exercise and she's only going to get sicker and less "fit" as she ages.  I'll bet there's a ton of peeps on here who were "healthy" in their 30s and not so much in their 40s, 50s et****il they got WLS.

You are our special snowflake unicorn, Kathy!!!    We knew our new friend was a newbie to the sandpit as soon as he/she said you didn't care ...   OH old peeps be like  WHAAAAAAAAT????

Nura777, some of us here can definitely be hard nosed ******** at times,  but questioning Kathy's  caring nature is like kicking a fluffy kitten!!!   She honestly is probably the kindest person on here.

Topic: RE: My Big Fat Fabulous Life! Spoiler Alert! Take 2

I'll take my chances at longevity over hers, even with my mutilated anatomy.  How many SMO people do you see in their 70's or 80's?  Don't think I've ever seen ONE in my daily life, but maybe it's because of where I live.  Maybe someone from one of the unhealthier  states can chime in on the hundreds they see out and about every day?

My mum is obese and in her 80's, but not ONE SMO in her assisted living facility - I'd say my mum is probably the largest person in there!

And the remission for PCOS (for most people) is to not be super morbidly obese.  

I have delivered babies to MO women with PCOS, so it is possible, but highly unlikely.  My sister was diagnosed at normal weight, and went on to have 3 children without fertility treatment.

Topic: RE: This "Thrive" stuff...

This stuff messed up my 26 year old son's thyroid so badly, he lost 80lb in 3 months.  His thyroid went back to normal as soon as he stopped.  Before he stopped, I begged him to see a specialist, because I was convinced he had a terminal illness - he looked that deathly sick.

Wouldn't touch this stuff with a bargepole

I think his behaviour was a combination of adolescence and mirroring what he's seen.   I don't think he was a bad kid. I felt he was a kid in a bad situation.

I disliked her for the first 1:45 hrs, what an obnoxious human being she was.  Rude, disrespectful and ungrateful.  She did redeem herself in the end, but I really feel for poor Neiko.  Teenage children should not have to care for their parents!

Mine are standard doodles,  so they're 85lbs each.  Most doodles are smaller than they are.

Syrah, the brown one, is a labradoodle and Barney is a whoknowswhatadoodle as he was a rescue from a very bad situation.  His previous people were prosecuted for cruelty!  He's the nicest dog ever.
