Good morning. I have waited all week to sleep a little late. Of course I have been awake since 4:30. Never fails.
I realize that the gastric by-pass has been a last result for Severely
overweight people. I have a problem with those that use it as an easy out. It can be dangerous and there can be many side effects. I knew that TOPS had dropped the rules on artificial help etc. But I was still disappointed in this last TOPS News where bypass surgery was endorsed in the ? section. We are called TOPS. Take Off Pounds Sensibly. If someone has REALLY
tried everything and they are 150# over weight then you have to do whatever is best for you.
And I will admit I have a real problem with someone winning awards etc after this surgery. You could have one person that loses 100# the old fashion way and another 105 the bypass way and beats the other out for Queen. How can that be fair???
I feel badly that this bothers me. I will have to do an attitude adjustment on myself. I know there are good people that "have to have" this surgery. It's when people do this as an easy out that it really bothers me. As you can see I am struggling with this issue. I have 150# to lose and it would be so easy to just not be able to eat and the weight fall off. And it does work great for some people. I knew a lady that did it and kept the weight off for 20+ years.
Well enough of that.
I had a turtle but wish it could have been some kind of loss.Even 1/2# would have been nice. But maybe next week.
My daughter has invited us to her house for supper tonight. It is nice when they get old enough to have the parents over to eat.
Well I better get busy. I am up early so maybe I can get stuff done.
We are starting to get members back for the winter.
Oh My typing class is over except for a written test. I was very disappointed as I expected I would be able to type good when I finished . I could have saved myself $145 and learned at home. Live and learn. Ido better than I did but not nearly as good as I wanted
Have a good weekend all
