It’s All Fun & Games ’til Your Jeans Don’t Fit
When it happened to me, I could not believe it. No one believes it. #147poundsgoneforever! When I hit rock bottom I took an assessment of myself and had a Serious Moment where I knew I had to make Serious Changes to get back to my core. I had fallen into a hole where for months I had been negative, unmotivated, not sleeping well and was stressed to my limits, all the while gaining back weight. Why I thought that I could handle Everything in Moderation (EIM) after 15 years of knowing certain foods were None of My Business (NOMB) is beyond me, but truth is that I had been hit with a Life Crisis and I reached back into my old life for comfort foods. In order to take back control, I knew that had to STOP, but then what?
It is not uncommon for intelligent people to find themselves in this situation. For years I have been the one giving the advice that you have to eventually come to your senses and realize that no one is going to save you – you have to save yourself. This time I was the one who needed help and I was going to have to figure out how to dig myself out. This are the steps it takes to lose regain. This is not just about shakes, its about the MINDSET you must have to make this work, but this time for life.
BariatricEating Support Group on Facebook!
Since then the BariatricEating Support Group on Facebook that has gathered over 50,000 members – but even more important is that we have assembled an Administration Team of bariatric patients who’ve been through it all.
Who Ya Gonna Call?
Head Admin Suzi Shaw had a Lap Band Slip & Flip and after months of self medicating with Ben & Jerry’s, created a total regain back to 348 pounds. She ditched all bad relationships, fought insurance for ‘band removal to bypass’ and clawed back to lose 190 pounds in 14 months to her current lean 158.
Admin Sharon Mahoney lost every last ounce of her 139 pound regain with the Back on Track plan! Sharon had gained back up to size 5X and is now wearing slim 10’s. This milestone took her even lower than her lowest weight back in 2004. She’s not stopping either – continuing on the plan to see where her body wants to go.
Sharon says, “There aren’t any superpowers that brought me here. Every one of you can do the same thing. I have the same cravings, the same temptations, the same weaknesses you have. But I’ve stuck with this plan, even with many slips. If I slip, I track what I ate and keep going. I will not quit!”
Admin Alison Garcia had lap band surgery in 2009 and in round one lost to 149 pounds – but within two years lost control and was back at 223 pounds – in June, she found BE and Back on Track gave her hope. In 12 months Alison has lost 110 pounds and got married this September in a size 2 Little White Dress.
