Obesity is not curable...

That was the title of a recent post on one of the forums I am a member of. ┬áIt resonated with me…

I believe it’s true, “obesity” is not curable…there are too may factors that play in to it, it’s not just that we were/are obese, it’s all of the reasons and ways we got there…I think obesity is just as much a mental disorder as it is a physical one… they don’t have the term “comfort food” for no reason. 135 more words

I ordered a two pound canister of the GenePro on Amazon. I’ve been doing some more reading on it and I got a few pointers. One is it can get clumpy in foods that are too hot and two, it’s not too yummy in plain water. 378 more words

One year since I had an Omega Loop Gastric Bypass - Saggy baggy is cute

It has been a year that has seen many changes for me, most significantly has been a loss of nearly 50kg from my body. My surgeon, the wonderful Mr David Yong, predicted a weight loss for me of between 40-60kgs following his first review of me one week post surgery. 1,686 more words

Maintain don't gain...or lose

I just updated my “myfitnesspal” settings to “maintain my current weight”…that is so scary to me for some reason.

I have always either been gaining weight or losing weight (rapidly in either direction), for the past few decades my life has been a constant game of yoyo where that is concerned. 70 more words
