Support is necessary!

I was reading this site and it was so empowering and I wanted to share a short blurb with you:1 comment | Leave a comment.
"When we fought to get the surgery we were personally empowered. We had to be, there aren't many advocates out there fighting on the behalf of the morbidly obese.
Yet somehow, if we get to comfortable in our post life there is a tendency to lose that hell-bent determination. Perhaps we take it for granted. Maybe we just get bored or distracted. Maybe we get discouraged because life after surgery has not been without struggle. Any of these things can cause us to lose hope or feel like failures. I have gone through periods of sadness and suffered feelings of failure since my surgery. Don't we all? This despair only festers if we regain some weight or sit on a plateau for an extended length of time.
But just like we can work a plan to test the pouch and get back on track, we can mentally train our mind to get back to being hell-bent determined to take personal control of our health. http://www.5daypouchtest.com from Kaye"

What I’ve discovered over the last 10 years especially is that many people who have tried and failed to sustain healthy weight loss are as trapped by their cravings as the addictive drinker is by his. This being said and realized, it becomes clear that sustaining weight loss should be looked at as a form of lifelong recovery, and as such, connecting with and participating in a support group of people dedicated to being healthy may be the single most important requirement for long-term success.Be the first to leave a comment.

Welcome New Members to Live Your Life. I pray that you will get the support you need from this group otherwise it serves no purpose. The only way for this to work is to admit the things that you are currently battling or overcoming and let's tackle them or celebrate them.1 comment | Leave a comment.
I am looking forward to the connections here.
Forever in My prayers,

Good Morning Everyone! Summer’s approaching fast and we’re moving into the time of year when all of a sudden your “routine” is shot all to heck. We know we usually do better staying on track when we’re in a routine so we’ve got to start thinking now about how we’re going to manage this summer. The best way is to put aside 1-2 hours each month and partake in our support group so you can stay focused on what’s important…. And that’s YOU!!!! This month we’re going to focus on “Accountability.” Finding a system that works for you…..Be the first to leave a comment.
