Good morning and Happy Friday Junior!

I've been MIA for a couple of days - work is nuts, studying, other assorted time-takers, and I feel out of touch with you guys :/

Off to work for the day, have to hit the coffee store at lunch to replenish my stash, Costco after work, and then finally home for dinner and an early night.

S - Source Greek (peach), a few green grapes (since my fridge is full of them!)

S - same as morning snack (my yogurts are about to expire lol)

Have a good one,

Good morning everyone. Yesterday was a good day in terms of having lots of energy.  I was able to accomplish quite a bit, I even swept the sidewalk in front of my house, lol.  Today I think I will do some gardening after swimming, I may be visiting a friend, but not sure yet, more household cleanup and then like Karen an early night with DH.

Good day everyone.  Made a few unhealthy choices yesterday, back on track this morning with packed lunch and snacks.  Anyone read the article "I made goal, why am I still not happy?", I found it really insightful.  It comes up when you go to the oh homepage.  It sums up how I have been feeling lately. Not that I feel depressed, just not happy at times, and weight loss does not "fix" that.  I knew that of coarse but the process seems so magical it is easy to think that it will magically solve your emotional issues too.  Ok so I am rambling. Lol

Good article Zizzler but how to identify what the roots are and what to do about them

Funny, that's how i feel some days. I got to goal and lost a few more and i was still not happy. Somedays, i love myself and others not. I don't even think i know whats bothering me sometimes. One of my reasons to having weight loss surgery was to find a partner and have a family of my own and that still hasn't happened and honestly feel discouraged that this was all for naught. Then there's other days when i love myself and i cannot get enough of myself. I'm still searching for inner peace and although my weight was a hinderance before health wise, now that i've achieved a healthy weight, WHAT NOW??? I do no regret my surgery but, i still searching for me.

Hey new_me 180, I feel similarly.  I am not at my ultimate goal weight, which is 140, but I have exceeded the goal set by my centre and am no longer obese, which was the most important thing for me.  I often wonder "now what"? too, I thought this surgery would make my life somehow better overall, and what it actually does is improve my mobility and health, everything else is still a struggle, I still have days where nothing seems to go right, and its hard to accept that this will probably never change.  I feel I am the same person and I like myself but now that reality is setting in it more challenging.
