Hello everyone. I can finally get back to posting since the tax season is over. I took a mini vacation to Las Vegas this past week to celebrate the end of the tax season and to participate in a slot tournament. I did really bad at the tournament but had a great time none the less.
I have been really bad at eating the right things lately (mostly due to work stress) and because of my work schedule working out with my trainer has been non-existent. As a result, I've put on about 30 lbs. My clothes are tight, I feel sluggish and angry with myself for sliding back into the bad habits. I need to shake it off and regroup but am struggling with that as well. My trainer gave her two week notice and Thursday is her last day. The man she has assigned us to is very hard core - body builder etc. He says he's worked with obese patients before however I am concerned that he thinks my sister and I are just lazy and not that we have real limitations due to severe osteoarthritis in the hips, knees and spine.
As background, I had RNY bypass surgery 12/2009. I lost 225 lbs but in the last few months have gained about 30 back. I need to lose about 70 more to get to about 150. I'm 5'4" and on Wednesday I will be 53 years old.
Any suggestions for restarting the weight loss campaign?
