Start Weight:(12 Oct 13) 237.0 lb
Current Weight:(29 Jul 14) 158.0 lb
Goal Weight:135.0 lb
following: Post Bariatric Surgery Diet
performance: gaining 0.5 lb a week

My name is Bonnie. I am married, 63 years old and a grandmother to 5. We live in a semi-rural area and I am retired (which I love). This is actually kind of difficult! I am a Christian, conservative, love to laugh, have fun, and be goofy (my specialty). I am using the 400 calorie solution and it is working a ok of me.

Life has changed since I wrote the above. I have now had bariatric surgery...needed massive repair and restructuring due to 3 hernias. I am losing and healing. Pretty much the rest is the same.

Confused
Fit one is right: consistency is the key--as long as it is consistently right. You are a brave woman to start a new post after the pain of the last one!!! Like you, I am bouncing up and down so I know how frustrating it is to eat properly and not see results.

Here!!! Here!!! Pompous arse might be a bit harsh, no, wait, it is on target. If a wife "can't keep her hands off you" just because of the weight, then there is another problem with the marriage. It is right to be happy with how one looks and proud of one's accomplishments but that "hands" comment is just wrong on so many levels. Thank you ClassicRocker--you are just right on so many levels!!

ClassicRocker has it right! None of us can MAKE someone change their minds--present your beliefs, research, ideas, successes/failures--but conclusions are for each individual. Everyone is not the same, is not motivated by the same things...however, very few are motivated by the type of brow-beating and put-downs expressed in these posts. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA AND HAHAHAHAHAHAHAH

Weight not coming off
Of course the weight is not coming off--add at least 500 calories per day--in fruit, veggies--more veggies, lean protein...up your activity by at least 20 minutes a day and you will move that weight down

I had a small DQ malt...did I fail the sugar part? It made me feel miserable--does that cancel out the calories or sugar???
