Actually, I have always found your story to be inspiring and motivating. It speaks volumes to me when when any of us who can't drop the weight have perfect labs for years. Seems to be a pretty clear indication that our malabsorbtion has left the building. I have long suspected I could also do without all or at least most of the supplements I take but I keep on taking them anyway. I was taking supplements in my 20's and it's a habit. Since I am very healthy overall it won't hurt me to keep on.I have an Apple watch and I hate it LOL I am totally an Apple person as well, but I miss simplicity! I am hoping for a Garmin vivosmart for my Bday.
Sorry to intrude lol. I got here from a link Liz posted and I was like Oh yeah lol, it's been a minute. It has been a minute because I have become a super duper absorber and a lot of judgemental DSers tell me it's my fault...so I just don't post much. Yup, it's my fault my labs are STELLAR with zero supplements for 3 years lol. My fault.
You aren't alone. In fact the story is very familiar, begged surgeon for a shorter CC because of my high start weight, got 75 supposedly, maybe 65, it's been so long I can't remember. I don't even feel like a DSer anymore. I don't celebrate surgiversaries or anything.
Dr K did a colorectomy on me in 2019 and refused to touch my DS because it went through the mesentery (fat layer in intestines) instead of around it. Then gave me a lecture about success is me being 315 or under. I cried. And then I gave up every getting back down to my small size. If the best can't help me, I give up.
Hugs to you for fighting through!
I’ve discovered you have to set the workout to get exercise minutes. It looks like a green running man. You can add one or make one of the currents fit as close as you can to what you are doing.The other day I spent exactly an hour doing what I thought was hard work. I was shoveling rocks into a bucket, carrying them to another location, lifting the bucket over my head and dumping the rocks over a fence. An hour of that only bought me 15 minutes of 'exercise'. It is very hard to close that exercise ring. And mine is only set up for moderate activity! Haven't tested it yet to see if it recognizes the rowing machine. Maybe I will try it today.
Thanks! I have never done that. I will give it a try to see if I can figure it out.I’ve discovered you have to set the workout to get exercise minutes. It looks like a green running man. You can add one or make one of the currents fit as close as you can to what you are doing.
