My parents offered multiple times to help me have gastric bypass or lap band and they would pay for whatever the insurance might not cover. I never wanted that surgery, I never thought it was for me. I completely support anyone who has had the surgery as everyone has to find their own path, but I hope you continue to stay true to you and do what YOU decide and continue to not let anyone pressure you into anything. It's your body and your decision as of course you know. You are entitled to change your mind at any point for any reason, just don't let anyone bully you into anything. You are too awesome for that nonsense.
They are so quick to give us medication or procedures and there is SOOOOO much more to weight loss than that, as of course you already know. I also think you mentioned in a previous video you said "I'm still hungry... well maybe I'm mentally hungry" and I completely relate to that. I didn't get to 272 pounds only eating when I was truly hungry and stopping when I was full. I ate out of boredom, for comfort, to celebrate, etc. I ate when I wasn't hungry, I kept eating when I was full.. I had the "I could always eat mentality". So for me, an appetite suppressant means diddly squat... I need something to turn off the voice in my head that wants me to eat when I'm not hungry. I am not saying the appetite suppressant won't help you, and you will decide if it helps you. I just hate that they are so quick to prescribe things and act like it will fix all the problems, it's so far from true and so frustrating. 2048 days ago
Had to laugh because green beans and chicken breasts are my go to meal almost on a daily basis. I take cinnamon and alpha lipoic acid for my diabetes support and a multivitamin. I have taken appetite suppressants in the past and have gained the weight back after I stopped them. I don't think weight loss surgery is a quick fix--there are complications. I would exhaust all avenues before I contemplated that and it sounds like you don't want it. You just have to find what works for you and you are still in search mode. You will find it, it just takes time. Still looking forward to our walk! 2049 days ago
