Welcome back Brock. What have you tried for satiation? A diet higher in protein and 'good' fats can be much more satisfying and it keeps you full longer. I'd also suggest looking at community centers for exercise, they are much more affordable than a private gym. A lot of health insurance providers will help with some or all the cost of a gym membership as well. I train in Martial Arts and it's helped me with much more than just getting fit. My class is a nonprofit, very affordable and the let you train at your pace. Being part of a group, forming friendships, it helps a lot too.
I may not be there yet but I'm closer than I was yesterday.
I got tired of starting over and working back to where I was, so I have stopped giving up!
Its probably been months if not a year since I have come on here, although I use my phone to still keep up with my diet points and also my water consumption but I really need the help and support from my friends here. I have yet to have hit a huddle like I am now.
For those of you who do not know me, I am Brock and I currently am the Quality Assurance Manager at ATT wireless at a local call center. I had the lapband in 2009 and started by getting the lapband in Feb of 09 of that year. I was 480 at the time and at this moment I am about 289 or so.
I haven't been able to sleep, I am constantly worried and my mind races, and I have seen a doctor and a psychologist and at this point am tying on Ambien because its not having an effect. I have been sitting here thinking about all the food I want to eat... and today I did in fact overeat by quite a bit because I was sick at home. I haven't been exercising much because I find it boring and I don't know what else to try to work out mainly because I cannot afford to join at gym at this point. I do have some free weights at home and try to walk but I get SOOOO bored, even listening to books on tape or the radio. Seeing as though I don't drink much in the way of soda I have conquered that but I do try and drink my chike shakes two times a day but I just need help. How do I deal with these constant cravings... How do I keep motivated and not get depressed.
I am glad to be back- I missed you Kimmie if you are still around and also stars. Anyone who can help.. I need it
