First of all Any Medifast recipes For Potato Wheat Bread? Thanks for any answer or 2. Another question... I realize that I may just be, "being childish", but I finally am doing something for myself. My whole life of being over weight, it's been planted in my head, not what I can do, but what I can't do. My.

Surgery.

Is thursday....I have no idea what to expect for weight loss...but by April, I have plans to go camping and explore caves, that I knew I couldn't fit into last summer..

My boyfriend was kind enough to remind me that maybe by then, I still won't be able to go in, but we will be back by october.....

Why don't people want to encourage you with positive, rather than constantly remind you of the negatives...I've already lost 26 lbs pre-op....and by april, I would think that I should be some what thinner. I will at least weight less than him. I just hate someone pointing out what we can't do, rather than encouraging what I can do.....Do I need someone telling me..."You know....this isn't going to be easy"....really???? What part of obesity is easy??.

Sorry...........just upset...two days to go...and the person I want to support me the most, is the person who reminds me how difficult this is going to be. My focus on my new life....is "i can do it...I can reach a goal.....I just can!".......

Thanks for letting me vent.......

That's a good question. I'm not sure what is the answer to that question. I'll do some research and get back to you if I find an decent answer. You should email the people at Medifast as they probably can answer it..

It may be that your BF doesn't want you to feel badly if you can'g to caving in April. However, you'll be able to. He just doesn't realize the powerful tool that GBS provides. Stay positive, tune out the nay-sayers, and keep posting. We'll give you all the positives you need!..

I am with these 2 (even though I am single). Besides, he is probably worried that his life style will change too...

You can an you will... Things are going to go nowhere but forward for you..

As for the nay-sayers? Never take no for an answer unless you're asking someone if you look fat in your jeans!..

You have half of it already done by saying don't tell me I can't do something I can...just remember those words and you are doing it for yourself..

Sometimes people just don't get it. They don't understand that words that sting to the bone in a fat body might bounce off a fit body they've not walked in our shoes. Take it with a grain of salt, unless he gets worse. He, too, could be feeling a bit insecure of what the "new you" is going to look and be like, and by remaining cynical he might be protecting himself in a way. Or, he could be trying to protect you from being disappointed in the event you aren't able to be at a goal at the very minute you expect to be..

Now that the.

Surgery.

Is over and your body will go through changes almost daily, your BF will take note and hopefully start.

Singing.

Praises, instead of doubts, to you for the new you you're becoming. And seriously, if he doesn't, then possibly he's not the best person to have on your support team....

Also remember that the.

Surgery.

Is probably freaking him out a bit as well.. most people react in ways that don't come out well.. haha..

With the new thinner you comes the fear of losing you (knowing that even more guys will be checking you out can be a worry as well)..lol.. it's part of having low self esteem for some..

There is also the jealousy factor.. most of the unconstructive comments I endured were from heavier people in my life that seemed to think I was a "quitter" or something and taking the easy ways out.. that reaction is common. Good Luck!.. you are doing this for you!.. and nobody else!!..

Just keep in mind that you are doing this for yourself..

I anticipated having the same problem so no one knows I am going to have the.

Surgery.

Except my daughter. Not even my boyfriend of 8 years. I have been going to all of my appointments by myself or with my daughter..

Every one will find out when I start my 2 week pre-op diet. They will notice me not eating..

I don't what people to think I am doing it for them and try to steal my joy of putting me first..

Don't let them steal your joy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!..

You CAN do this and you WILL. Keep the positive attitude. When someone tells you something negative, tell them that you prefer to think positively and that you want to enjoy anticipating whatever the event is..

Hope.

Your.

And recovery go well..

You know that you can always come here and "rant and rave" - excellent outlet for those frustrating feelings..

I have wondered if some of my family members might have an investment in me staying the same. Who are they, if I'm not the fat one anymore? I'm just saying......
