    That stinks! I totally know how it goes, been dealing with RA since I was a kid. Part of why I've been trying to get fit is to lessen the flare ups.

    I've lost a total of 28lbs since starting MFP in October. That puts me at 132, which is probably where I was for my first Coachellla in 2000

    Bring it, Yuma stage.
    Great job!!

    Congrats!! The pills are helping, but I'll get back on a fitness regimen after we get home. I don't have RA thankfully, but my cousin does, I know how harsh that is. Good on you for meeting your goal!

    It took me 7 days to get back to my lowest weight so far, fuck, what a waste. Anyone else have a problem, eating 1 big meal and then having to pay for it for like a week trying to lose the weight? Today is protein shakes for me!

    5 small meals a day and the gym at least 3 days per week seems to always work for me.

    15lbs is great! You've done a great job of losing it slowly, which makes it more likely you'll be able to keep it off

    I think coachella should be a part of any diet and exercise plan. as of this morning I'm down another 5 and I still have another coachella to go! I know part of it is water weight, but I should be re-hydrated by now so i think it was just from dancing so fast. after this weekend, doublechella will probably help me lose another 5 and I'll have met my coachella goal albeit a week and a half later than planned.

    now if I can just get weekends 3-52 i'll be a skinny minny! haha

    You also looked great! Believe me if I didn't gain weight at Coachella you won't have either. If anything the dancing/heat and constant hydration kept me steady.

    OK, I'm jumping in here this year. I've been working on a healthy diet since October and had lost 5 percent of my body weight before last weekend...which is only 10 pounds, but a huge goal for me. I am determined to get to my next goal of 10 percent! I'm not sure all the booze I consumed over last weekend will help though, but was worth the great weekend. Now to get back on track!

    Just had the annual benefits meeting at work. Currently bariatric surgery is $500 co-pay. In July it goes up to $1000. Still can't do it. No doubt I have been frustrated and yo yo'd with weight for nearly 20 years but still... I personally would feel like a failure. Am I wrong? Is this some shit I should consider after struggling with weight loss for two decades? I'm beyond frustrated about this for sure. Is it time to see a shrink, i've done that once before and that sucked too.

    Mark, I cannot advocate for that option until all others have been thouroughly exhausted. I ran a Bariatric Surgery program as one of my departments for a couple years and the number of horror stories I witnessed was appalling, even for high risk surgeries. They do a good job of selling these surgeries as simple, fix and go procedures, but in reality, even when all goes well, the adjustments needed for a successful outcome are more than most of the patients expected to have to make. Those success stories we see are more a result of the forced lifestyle changes needed after the surgery. If the same effort and money were put into getting a trainer, seeing a nutritionists, visiting a therapist, and overhauling your life, you'd get the same results or better without the same risks. If you've still got my number from ATP 2011 give me a call before going through with something like this. It's too risky of a road to go down without all of the facts.
    Wow, 12 step meetings at Coachella, who knew? SOBERCHELLA.COM

    I'm a reasonable man, get off my case....

    I figured as much. I know people who have done it and so on. It sounds like a nightmare and I have never wanted a quick fix which is why I keep trying until I quit before I keep trying again. I really have almost no interest in surgery and mentioned it out of frustration. I will win this fight I tell ya! I have so many things I want to do that I need to be physically fit for and it just kind of depresses me knowing I am not that person yet. It isn't even that I think the weight loss will bring happiness. It is the being healthy that will allow me to feel great and do all thexciting things I want to do. I just have to figure it out. I will. Thanks for the reassurance I needed on the surgery deal.

    keep this outlook and you'll do great! it's easy to get discouraged especially since set backs are bound to happen, but change always comes from within. bad habits may be easy to form, but good habits aren't as tough as you might think they are. get support wherever you can find it and if you can get a work out buddy to push you and challenge you it becomes more of a friendly competition instead of a struggle. we're here for you man!! xoxo

    I'm with Kory. Don't go the surgery route until you've exhausted all other options and read up on all of the facts. It can be a very scary thing, and is definitely not an "easy fix."
