Stuart Duncan1,403Autism Month - Autism CircleSince it is April, better known to many of us as #Autism Awareness Acceptance Month, it's a great time to share my primary circle, simply called: #Autism This circle consists of autistics, parents of autistic children, experts, therapists, autism pages, teachers and more.Some people in this circle do not talk about autism much at all, some talk about autism on occasion while others talk almost exclusively about autism. So keep that in mind when/if you add this circle to your circles.2012-04-12 19:22:28490002CC G+

So last week I was 249.2, this week I'm 257.2. I don't eat much. What is going on?! My only vice is lemonade iced tea which 100 calories. Not sure how many grams of sugar. I"m kind of freaking out!

On Mother Day I took my wife out for brunch with my mother in law and my son. My wife wore this dress I liked and I wanted to have a picture with her. I stood with her and smiled. I felt good. When I saw the picture, I honestly didn’t recognize myself. I was thin. I mean really thin. I weighed in that morning at 227 pounds. Size XL which was always considered too small on me is starting to become too big. In the next few weeks I could actually see myself wearing a Large instead of XL all together. When I decided to get the surgery I wanted the diabetes to go away. It’s gone. I will tell you, I didn’t expect this transformation. I’m coming to the end of my “honeymoon” period. And I am think I have another 8 or 9 pounds to go. I am wondering if I am getting too small and if I should maybe gain a little weight. (Which is an odd thing to say about me). If there is a lesson in this I have learnedit’s this. ... more »

Well here's a long one about my journey so far these past 8 months. Sorry for the length but its an interesting story. . . .

Its a funny thing when you hear stories of men and women released from prison and what they have to get themselves used to again. In his book "I was wrong" Televangelist Jim Bakker talked about being out of prison and going to a small Italian restaurant with his lawyer. When he saw the menu, he cried because of the variety on the menu. He just wasn't used to it. The other night, I walk into a Jos A. Bank which is a nice clothing store. They were having a sale and they are located across the street from Staples which is where I was going. For the past 20+ years purchasing clothes was a burden because the idea you're morbidly Obese stares you right in the face when buying clothes. And just like a person who is in prison, when you're fat as I was, you... more »

So I have been out of the IT field professionally for the past few years opting to go into technical training and IT technical design which has been fun. I went to Law School which was also a blast but I am wanting to get back into IT again, I love IT and I miss it and I am of course willing to start at the bottom again. I am a MCP (which I don't think is worth much anymore) So I am wondering. If you were going to start all over again with a certification. What is a good place to start? MTA, CCNA or the old standard Comptia A+ and Network+ Stuff. Not in a hurry to be "Job Ready" just want to get back into the IT game again. I have given my self until the end of this year to do something! Suggestions are really wanted...Thanks!

Quick question. When I eat food, the actual amount of ounces in that food isn't exactly what goes into my pouch right? Meaning I just ate a small sandwich that according to the wrapper is 6.2 oz. Is 6.2 OZ in my pouch right now? I'm just wondering if I should be full?

If there is a lesson in this I have learned it’s this. Your weight is not a number, it’s YOU. For the first time ever I am looking at my body and making the decision what is considered too small instead of what is too big. For the past several months in looking at the scale I would see a number and I would automatically say “too big” and work to reduce that number. Now, I look at the number and I say “How do I look?” and I ask “how do I feel” and I make adjustments accordingly. I’m sure most people that have undergone this type of surgery understand the “RUSH” of standing on the scale and seeing the weight melt off. But I have to remember there is a stopping point. Up until yesterday, I was set on reaching a ZERO on the scale.___

So I posted something a few days ago about being STUCK and I wasn't losing any weight. I've been frustrated for the past two months because I'm doing what I think is right and I'm very very careful about what I eat but I wasn't losing any weight. Well, my wife got sick, she got really sick and I had to take her to see her doctor. Her doctor and my doctor share a common space so as I was walking her in her wheelchair I passed my doctor and I asked him about my condition. My doctor asked me to stay for a few minutes and one of the things he did is he took my blood pressure. My blood pressure was sky high, being an African-American he told me I was going to most likely fight high bloodblood-pressure for the rest of my life. He then prescribed a diuretic for me to go along with my high blood pressure medication. Three days later my weight was finally back on track and I went from 247to 238... more »

Now looking for ways to bring down my BP.___

Quick question. I have been asked to design something Captivate. They want the user to enter I. Their name and email address to "register" how do I do that? I know it's simple but I'm scratching my head on this one. Ease help has to be done like today.

OK, so this is an interesting article that has assuaged my fears a bit. I guess just like real life, I’m going to have to live on faith that Reggie knows what he’s doing. He comes from an awesome tree of great football executives and knows the game. Right now, it may look like he’s a idiot, but I gave Al Davis time, so I might as well see what he is doing,

I have an old Mac Book Pro 2007. It was babied so its was in decent shape. The user who gave it to me told me she didn't update it to Snow Leopard. She has a bunch of time invested in iWeb. How can she get those pictures an images over into a useful application? Any ideas?

So this is my new 2007 Mac Book Pro. So dear friends of mine gave it to me after it started to do this. I thought it be a nice little project to to see if I could get it back in working order. When I boot up it looks like this. I have a feeling that the display is fried but I want to see if anyone had any ideas about what this is.

So I'm at 10 months this week. I have lost about 130 pounds and I am doing ok. Couple of things I want to say and I am welcoming feedback. 

#1 I have been around 250 pounds stuck on a plateau so I stopped drinking the Starbuck lemonade iced Tea everyday and I dropped about 7-8 pounds. I started drinking the same drink with diet lemonade which reduces the drink from 28 grams of sugar to about 4. 

#2 I have been wondering if my stomach is expanding but I think I'm ok. I can still eat  1 slice of pizza maybe 1 slice and a half depending on how hungry I am which is about 6 - 8 oz. 

The other day I had a piece of bread covered with 2 tablespoons of peanut butter. The bread was advertised as "double" protein so I had a slice. I ate the slice. 10 minute later I had another slice with peanut butter and was full.

I don't eat rice or pasta. I meannot... more »

I don't eat rice or pasta. I mean not at all. I still eat wraps and generally I still eat half a wrap and maybe some french fries but then I get full. I still can't eat a full wrap.

I don't each much junk food. Save a handful of Potato chips from time to time. I'm in the middle of studying for the bar so I haven't exercised at all the past month or so.

My food intake I think is still a problem. I don't think I'm eating enough. (which is a weird problem to have)

My day begins with yogurt and a protein bar

My lunch is some kind of wrap or something like that (I never finish)

Dinner is general some kind of sandwich or some chicken with a slice of bread. (its very quick)

I snack on fruit or nothing for the rest of the day. By dinner time I am hungry. My craving have been in check, but I still crave food. and that is starting to scare me.  

#3 While I don't crave sugar, when I eat it my brain goes CRAZY. Its definitely an addiction. I also don't dump for some reason.  

I still do't drink soda. I have from time to time had sparkling fruit water which is advertised as Zero Calorie. I still drink milk for the protein but no more than 3 - 4 oz. I also drink Crystal light again, no calories. I've never been a fan of water so I don't drink it a lot. 

Twice a week I go to Starbuck for an Iced Tea flavored with lemonade and no sweetener. But the rest of the week. I drink Iced Tea, flavored with a splash 

#4 I'm coming to what I would consider my goal weight. I am 243-244 and I was shooting for 237-238. The idea of going lower than that scares me. 

I'm looking for thoughts and feedback. I looking for people to give me there opinion to make sure I am still on the right track.

Thanks___

So I am curious. I had a sandwich today with 4 oz of turkey on 7 grain bread. I normally eat about half but today I ate the whole thing. I felt full but I wasn't stuffed. Is my stomach getting bigger? Should I be worried. Did I stretch my pouch?

Hello, I am embarrassed to say this, but I have failed the bar 6 times. I am taking the bar in February and I have opted to go with Barbri. I am also looking for a place on the web that has scholarly articles on legal concepts. I can't afford journals so I am looking for free. Free is good. Thanks. Does anyone have any advice on beating the bar. My problem is the MBE. Should I do adaptibar as well as Barbri?

They were having a sale and they are located across the street from Staples which is where I was going. For the past 20+ years purchasing clothes was a burden because the idea you're morbidly Obese stares you right in the face when buying clothes. And just like a person who is in prison, when you're fat as I was, you really have NO choice. The only thing you have is what this ONE store has. The salesman greeting me warmly and asked what I would like to try on. . . I was kind of lost. As a fat man, I bought what I needed replacing. Even now as a smaller man, the clothing I bought was based on the weight loss and having nothing to wear. But the idea of walking into a clothing store, a fine clothing store for that matter to look at clothes without a specific purpose is very foreign to me. for YEARS I didn't go to malls and walk into a "Lucky Brand" or something because I knew they didn't have 4XL. 

"Sweaters" I said, like I knew what I was doing. The Sales man asked me my size. I honestly didn't really know. 

When your extremely overweight, there are some moves you do to keep the attention from your weight. You wear all dark clothing, and you wear something to cover up the largest area of your body, in my case it was my stomach. I choose to wear 4XLT instead of 4XL because I wanted to make sure my stomach was properly covered. The size 4XLT meant the shirt would go past my waist and maybe I could tuck it. 

Now though, I was kind of confused. The salesman sensing me being uncomfortable asked to take my measurements. He then found me a color I was used to. A beautiful Dark Cocoa v-neck sweater. I put it on and it fit. "What size is this" I asked. "Oh," he said, "this is an XL." He then said, "with your measurements, there is no need to go any bigger". 

Upon hearing that, it was at that moment that I realized I had my full lay of the store entire store. That I had the ability to actually try on nearly anything in a store that WASN'T specifically for large people or section of the store that didn't say "Big and Tall". At that moment I understood what Jim Bakker went through in that restaurant coming out of prison. And I have to tell you, the feeling was SURREAL. The idea that I can walk into any store in the country and have more than a %70 percent chance to find something I LIKE instead of something I NEED. That I have the right to purchase something because I enjoy how it looks on me. I was actually uncomfortable. . . In all of this weight loss, it feels like I'm not comfortable in my own skin just yet. . . 

When we hear of these stories from Prisoners you hear guys talk about what life is going to be like when they get out "I'm gonna do this or that". When you're Obese, you hear the same stories. "I'm gonna wear this" or "Do that" but when the rubber meets the road, its harder than I would have ever realized. Maybe theres a class I can take to be more comfortable?___

Yesterday marked my 7th month post op. I weighed myself on Friday and I was 253 pounds meaning that i have lost roughly 120 pounds or so. I haven't been very hungry of late but my diet has changed. Yesterday I had about 4 oz of chilli and a "half" of a half of sandwich. For dinner I guess I splurged and had two relatively small pieces of pizza. My first time in a while. It was kind of scary, but I enjoyed it. I don't really eat pasta or rice anymore and I find myself eating a piece of bread a day. My only vice is an occasional Starbucks iced tea lemonade. I don't eat or drink a lot of sugar because I still am prone to dumping. Yesterday I tried to have some cranberry juice by my body rebuffed it. For protein I tend to drink a glass of milk or two a day and I try to get plenty of vitamin C by eating small clementines during the day. Those are like my candy. They are small enough that I... more »

They are small enough that I grab two or three and eat them in the car or for a snack. I also eat grapes or clementines when I watch tv. I go through them quickly. In all no regrets, very happy with my new life.___

I have started a small ID consulting firm and I am looking for clients. What is the best way to get started. I do both ILT and E-learning. Has anyone ever used a lead-generation company?

So I am 6 months post op. I have lost 100 pounds and I have been struggling with strength and dehydration. But for the most part I am good. I don't eat a lot and when I eat I try not to eat bread or pasta like before. Eating to be honest scares me. I am at a healthy weight and I don't want to gain it back. But I think that its unrealistic to eat. Does anyone here eat lower portions of foods they ate before. I mean does anyone here still eat a little bread, or a little pasta or maybe a potato from time to time. I am finding there is no balance in my life with food. So lately I have chosen to just not eat. I try to listen to my pouch so I don't overeat. I try to maintain a healthy diet. But I'm still frightened. Nothing is more frightening than to go back to where I was. Also, I don't work out as much as I used to because of the fatigue. Now that my strength is back. If I don't work... more »

If I don't work out, will the weight just come back though I maintain a healthy diet. Its like I'm a mutant doomed to be tied to something and not be a normal person. The BEFORE picture I have attached was me about a week before the surgery, I was so unhealthy and so miserable. I don't need to go back to that. The AFTER picture is a joy to see, but the pressure is starting to mount, people are happy for me and proud of me and generally treat me differently. I just can't go back there. Thoughts?___

Help would be welcomed.

So In a pitcher I combined GoldPeak Tea, Newmans diet lemonade, and ounce of lime juice (straight from lime) and in the entire 60 oz pitcher I added 6 oz of tropicana 50 calorie reduced sugar orange juice. The juice acted as the sweetener. It seemed to have worked. The juice is sweetened by stevia and per glass if my math is correct I drink and oz per glass. Thoughts? Too much sugar?

So I'm just filled with questions! Its a warm summer Sunday and before my workout I wanted an ice tea/lemonade. Since I don't drink the Starbucks Ice Tea lemonades anymore because of the 28 grams of sugar I have decided to try to make my own. So I use pure leaf unsweetened ice tea and Newmans own DIET lemonade. After a thorough conversation with my nutritionist I was told that this is fine. The lemonade is 4 grams of sugar per 8 ounces and I use about 4 oz and its 20 calories. However, its not really sweet. So, I was wondering if I could put in 1 - 2 teaspoons or maybe a tablespoon of honey in the mixture. Would honey help me or hurt me? I don't want sugar and I really don't ever want anything to hinder me. I drink plenty of water everyday but sometimes I would like something different.

Maybe I missed it, maybe I didn't but can we talk about this drink I'm drinking and the damage that sugar has on our bodies. As stated in previous post, my only vice these days is the 30 OZ Starbucks Lemonade Ice Tea. It is stated on the nutritional guide that the drink is 230 calories but technically its not. The drink is normally one part 12 Ozs of black unsweetened tea along with about 8 OZ of lemonade then they add 7 "pumps" of a simple syrup. The total is 230 calories which is a lot. However, I hate syrup, high fructose and the like so I tell them not to add any syrup in my Tea so in essence my drink is 8 oz of lemonade and 12 OZ of tea. Upon further research. I found that you standard 8 oz glass of lemonade is roughly 100 calories and there are no calories in tea. So that means with a lot of ice, I am drinking 100 calories. But here is my problem.

Is this drink causing damage I don't know about. I was down to 296.8 and after a full day where I maybe had one in the afternoon and one at night, I gained almost 4 pounds. For the most part of the day I have protein like eggs and fish. But 4 pounds. Is this the Sugar that is doing this to me?___

Just want to celebrate! When I got the surgery I was roughly 366-367. My first goal was to get to 330 which was the weight that John Candy was when he died. Then it was to get to 315 which was the weight I was at when I was diagnosed with Diabetes. I then wanted to be under 300 pounds because it was the first time being that small since the 90's. well this morning, I hit 297.8 and I'm THRILLED. I have lost almost 70 pounds and I have NEVER felt better. My goals now are pretty simple. I want to be 260 by Christmas and begin running and biking this fall. I finally feel I am healthy enough to attempt the bar exam which is this week and I am going to begin to buy a few items of clothing. The surgery saved my life folks! No doubt about it.

So it been roughly 3 months and I have lost about 65 pounds. I'm stuck at 303 pounds and no matter what I do. The eating has been better. With direction from my doctor I have given up all meat save fish. My is generally a tuna or salmon wrap. My question today is that I can only eat about half of it before I get full. I don't force it. Has my pouch be stretched? Enclosed is a picture. This is the bigger half that I will save for dinner tonight. I'm studying for the bar exam and I generally only eat twice a day. I eat yogurt in the morning with some water. I eat the tuna in the afternoon Nd sometime About 9 I eat the other half which will be this half for dinner. Am I hurting my pouch? The other picture is the salmon wrap I had yesterday. I split it up and ate for lunch and dinner. Please advise.

It's funny. My doctor made a point to tell me that after the surgery I could experience a change in what I like to eat versus what I didn't like to eat. Well, right now I have no desire to eat meat. It's like my body wants me to become a vegetarian. I never ever saw that coming when I got the surgery.

So I have been really tired and really fatigued of late. I went for a checkup and it seems I am dehydrated again. The surgeon told me the following. You have to eat more and right now I'm telling you to stop exercising for a while. Most of my life, Doctors have been telling me to STOP eating and to exercise MORE. To date I weighed in yesterday at 306.3 which roughly means I lost 60 pounds in a little over 6 weeks. I'm a little confused. I don't eat anymore and I really don't like eating, its uncomfortable. I don't have the crippling cravings I once did and I was training myself to eat when I'm hungry. My WHOLE life I was always told to train up your body by eating only when you hungry. I start to do that and I get yelled at. What gives. Also, I ate quite a bit yesterday and didn't get sick. My pouch is suppose to be three ounces right?

Did I bust my pouch? Did I stretch my pouch? What is going on, the thought of gaining weight TERRIFY's me. It gives me nightmares. Am I going out of my mind?___

I have lost 40 pounds in 17 days. I haven't lost much in the past five. I am dehydrated and I need to keep drinking Gatorade. When will more weight come off?

In the beginning right after the surgery all I did was sleep. Now it's not like that but I find myself wanting to rest still.

So I just got out of surgery 6 days ago. While in the hospital my sugars were checked 3-4 times a day. I noticed my sugars were going down. I haven't had insulin since Saturday when I came home. I went to my diabetic nurse and checked my sugar. It was 96! I was told not to take insulin right now. Is this because of the surgery?

Hi guys.

Well, the surgery is in the books! I am 5 days post op from my full gastric bypass. I'm still in pain and I haven't been able to do a lot of liquid. But, I'm getting better. I miss solid food but I have lost 17 pounds so far. I am taking 2 weeks off from work. What do I eat when I slowly start on solids again?

I brined some pork chops last night . I used a good brine but I for some reason the chops were tough! I sautéed them then finish them in the over. Maybe I over cooked them? So I need to know, how can I get perfect juicy pork chops. How long should the cook.

Let my kid play with my computer. (Big mistake!) computer applications are not responding. Getting the rainbow wheel of death. Can't get into anything it just sits there and look at me. I would like to trouble shoot this myself. Before letting apple have it. I did a restart and hit shift key waiting for it to do something it's just spinning.
