My 1st question is: What are good Medifast recipes for cuts of steak that are tough with little fat? Thanks in advance for any comment. Second question.. Working on a little thought piece about the personal cost of recovery from addiction and compulsion. I wrote last week about being "New," now I'm asking if, as you are changing, you are maintaining that part that makes you,"You?".

Joy got me thinking when she asked about people claiming to be one person, but being another, and being honest. Kami challenged the powerlessness of victimhood..

I think in.

Learning.

To control my eating and controlling ME, that I have had to sacrifice some of the stand out character traits that I admired about myself:.

Where is the "brave" young man who went to very dangerous places at 16 yrs old, to get his buzz on, avoiding the criminal and the cop, just to find something that would quiet his screeching brain?.

Who stood up to abuse and hostility in a dysfunctional home, where a family roamed and fed upon each other daily?.

Who resisted vicious bullying as a fat child, not quite like the others in many ways, as.

School.

Became a House of Horrors?.

In college, speaking at City Hall for a Gay Rights addendum, in front of two battalions of the KKK, while coming out on TV at the University of Florida, Gainesville in the 80's? What happened to that fearless guy, who believed so strongly in something, that nothing mattered but the truth?.

Who challenged the leaders of the major Atlanta AIDS Hospitals, Clinics and Service Organizations to break down their territorial barriers, share millions of dollars of grant monies, and work together to save lives?.

The guy that walked into the Sexual Offenders State Hospital and confronted heinous monsters, to help save young abusers whose fate was not yet healed?.

That guy who stood up one Sunday in front of 1200 members and confronted leaders of a congregation that formed his entire social community and spiritual family, and accused the minister of a history of predatory sexual sins against members of the church, setting off a maelstrom of reaction?.

The hotheaded young man who Marched on Washington and Stonewall in New York City to demand equality, AIDS Funding and the support of Pride?.

The same guy who could spend weeks in a row seeking out sex in the most unusual places, all over the U.S., with the most unusual and dangerous persons, medicating the shame with drugs and alcohol, collapsing into bleak and utter depression?.

The drunk who would fight anybody that got in his way?.

Somehow, along with recovering from the negative synergy of multiple addictions and compulsive behaviors, I have had to give away some of the "fight and fury," that are integral to my character..

Can we maintain the strong parts of our personalities, and at the same time, lose the obstinent denial of addiction and compulsion? Lose the piss and vinegar and yet, still maintain the edge? Can we remain honest to ourselves, as we change who we are, in order to become who we want to be?.

Can you?..

That's a good question. I'm not sure what is the right answer to your question. I'll do some poking around and get back to you if I discover an answer. You should email the people at Medifast as they probably know..

"Yes, I am strong, but it's wisdom borne of pain,.

Yes, I paid the price, but look how much I've gained....

If I have to, I can face anything.

I am Strong, I am invincible...".

Not my favorite song...lol...but I have always loved this verse.I think it is gender neutral and applies to all of us!..

So interesting that you brought this up, I am in the very early stages in my journey for WLS, and my husband who I love with all my heart has already asked me, "Am I going to lose my fun loving happy Krissy, are you going to be miserable without food?" "Is this WLS going to run your life?", I dont know how to answer....everyone that has had the.

Surgery.

Here sounds very happy but did your personality change? did your loved ones notice? are they intimidated by that change, like my husband is......

Comment #3

It only runs your life if you let it! After about three months, it is sort of like having a new baby. You get into the swing of things...BUT don't forget to give yourself everything you need Nutrition,.

Exercise.

, Supplements, Water and Support or you'll "wake the baby," and then it will contol life until you get back to basics!..

Krissy, you bring up a good point. My husband is not intimidated by me getting.

Surgery.

We fell in love because we truly love eachother. He is my best friend, and I am his. We support eachother no matter what the challenge. He wants this so badly for me because he knows how unhappy I am with my weight and health..

That said, there are people who married their partners because they thought no one else could love them. They settled. When they became skinny, a whole different world opened to them and they realized that they didn't have to settle..

I'm lucky I didn't settle. There are so many who have.....

I think alot of it too is his own insecurities, I could tell him I love him w/all my heart until I am blue in the face and he will still ask if I am going to.

Leave.

Him when I get skinny...it;s funny because my relationship with him is something I am most confident about in my life so it is strange to see him so nervous..

PG, Some marry overweight mates to.

Avoid.

The competition they fear from rival suitors, especially men from broken homes. Others, of course are just attracted to fat women..

Either way, WLS can create marital discord.....
