Hi, everyone. I am so glad to join this team. i am so encouraged with Indygirl's blogs and so happy for her that she has loss so much weight, even in trying conditions. I am trying harder than I have ever before in my life. I had gastric bypass surgery and didn't really try as hard as I am now to get on the right track with my eating plan and exercises. I guess that I thought I had found the magic solution with the surgery. Hey, that is not all there is to it. It takes changing your life style. I even started gaining back weight and never really loss as much as I needed to . Well, with "OLD FASHION", life style changes and SP support I am doing the impossible (I thought) and getting healthier and stronger. Good luck to all. Hugs all.
Weight loss surgery is stomach surgery, NOT Mind surgery.
Change the MIND AND Change the BODY
MAKE UP YOUR MIND You are NOT going to Quit
You are NOT going to Sit
MAKE UP YOUR MIND You are going to GET UP and GET MOVING !!!!
I joined Indygirl's SparkTeam because I love her posts and am so motivated by her. I've lost 92 pounds since one year ago, and still have 88 pounds to go. I've surprised myself with my weight loss success, and every now and then I feel almost like a stranger in my own body. I was used to being morbidly obese for the past 2 decades, so now this thinner but still severely obese body feels strange at times. I mean, I can cross my arms and my legs now, and I haven't been able to do that for a very long time. Of course I can do more exercise now too, and that's the important thing. I still occasionally get stuck on plateaus when I react as I used to life's stresses by getting depressed and then sedentary again, but my diet stays pretty stable. I'm so glad I found Sparkpeople so now I don' feel so alone in this journey. So, hello to everyone and good luck to all!
