The easiest way to avoid regrets is to ask yourself this question, "If not now, when?" It's a powerful way to put life and our decisions about how we spend our time into perspective"

On meds and sick and to maintain with all of that going on is great! I hope you are starting to feel better.|

which means I have the weight I gained off plus 1.4 pounds! |
I'm glad I'm losing but I need to fix my food. There are days when almost half my 25 points is junk foods...Until I'm willing to keep them out of the house, I'm going to keep eating them and I guess I'm not ready. I don't get hungry often...food has never been that much of an issue since my gastric bypass. It's sweets. I was eating something the other day and I looked at it and asked the questions, "is this worth your health; is it worth feeling good about yourself; is it worth being overweight on your trip?" And, in that moment, the answer was, YES! What an addict.
I have been feeling lackluster for the past 3 days and realized this morning that it's probably from not having enough real food in me. It feels a lot like depression and, God, I don't want that to start up again after a couple months of feeling good. That might be the motivation I need to get this straight. Also need to get to the gym. My skin is sagging like crazy. Can't do much about most of it but I know I can firm my thighs up and maybe a little in my arms.
Also realized that there is an irrational voice in my head telling me that this will never work. This isn't the one that says that I'll never be able to stick to a program. It's one that says that even if I do everything right, the weight just won't come off. It just won't. Have to work on that one.
With all that said, I am hopeful. My next goal is 237 which would be one pound under the lowest I got after WLS.

Awesome Paula. What a victory!! |

I AM TRILLED with this success. I know just how you feel about 'I will never stick to a diet' |
I feel that way all the time. But - we have to keep trying... because it just might stick one of these times. even if it's for a patch of time - try to hold on.
I am on Team Paula.

I stayed the same this week. Hoping to see a loss on Saturday, but for now Iím still down 107 pounds. I think the final 63 pounds will come off slowly-but Iím going to stick with this. |
Onward I march.
Your body is just preparing for a big drop!

182 - kind of a 'gift' as I was not very careful when we were in Ohio. I am very grateful.|
Good for you.

I think one of the biggest hurdles is getting off track a bit and getting back on immediately.|

Being accountable 237
Posted by Krista on 2/5/2020, 8:35 am, in reply to "WIW"
I'm about 237. Not off track crazily but definitely could be doing better.|
Accountability is good.
Posted by Paula on 2/6/2020, 10:04 am, in reply to "Being accountable 237"
Way better than just disappearing. How do you feel---physically? emotionally? I often think of just how many calories you were able to burn when you were working out so much. It had to have speeded up your metabolism. It has to be hard to not be able to add all of those endorphins now.|
Posted by Krista on 2/6/2020, 4:16 pm, in reply to "Accountability is good."
Physically, terrible. Although I work 4 hours at a time at the hut on my feet, I am dying when I get home. I don't move well now at this size and I feel really the worst I have in years. Ditto, emotionally, although not super depressed. More like wanting to isolate though.|

I commend you on your honesty and still, always, having some hope or thoughts that you can eat and be healthier and with food sanity. |
Hang in there, sweetie.

We will get this Krista. I just know it ♥️|
Being accountable is good! ....

I will always be on TEAM Krista! Hang in there Krista, it will pay off! |
