*I Attend Kaisers WLS Support Group
in Richmond & Livermore/Pleasanton.
Being plugged into a Support System is vital to me.
I hang around people who understand the
seriousness of obesity & are committed to their positive WLS lifestyles.
I was told early on to put into practice "now" the things I'll be doing after the surgery, like exercising, taking vitamins, eating wholesome foods (within a 1200 calorie plan) so they can become well established habits. Also to use time to my advantage.
I'd like to say to my dear Richmond friends:
Debi, Sara, Sue, Judy, Michelle, Kimberly, Joanne, Monique, Judy & all your sisters,Arley, Christine, Laura, Linda, VickiO, Sally, Maria ,Mimi, Joyce, Pat & her cousin, Cathy, Jill, Ellen,Barbara, Vicki R., Kelly, Karen, Marianne, Pam, Jen, Bev, Elizabeth, Sarah, Kelly, Annabelle, Dave, George, Mike & Steve, YOU ALL INSPIRE ME.
Also, I attend a local Kaiser meeting in Livermore/Pleasanton.
Thank you, Joyce, Angela, Elaine,Pat, Laurel, Judy, Rosemary,, Kathy, Marra,Carol, Jan, & Suzanne for being so helpful with my questions & all the things you've given me.
And last but not least,
Thank you ObesityHelp.com, who is made up of all you wonderful people. You have enriched my life in numberous ways. I've enjoyed getting to know many of you, reading your posts just when I needed them, being amazed by your b/4 & after pictures, laughing at the humor, & a few tearful moments of
understanding the severity of obesity.
How do I say thanks for sharing what I needed?
May God truly Bless YOU ALL.
Diet Tips.... a little humor
- IF NO ONE sees you eat it, it has no calories.
- If you drink a diet soda with candy, they cancel each other out.
- Foods eaten for medicinal purposes, such as chocolate for energy, have no calories.
- Cookie pieces contain no calories because the breaking process causes caloric leakage.
- If you eat standing up, the calories go to your feet and get walked off.
- “Stressed” is “desserts” spelled backward.
