    Lowest Weight since 2004

    So this morning I stepped on the scale and saw 179.8. I haven't seen such a low number in 15 years! Of course, I keep thinking 2004 was just 5 or 6 years ago so there was a double WHAAATTTT?? moment for me. I'm over the moon! Had RNY on November 28, 2018 and have lost 96 pounds so far. I truly can't believe it. It's a constant journey of mind and body changes. Still struggling with my "FAT" mind but I'm working on it. Here's to finally kicking this weight issue in the nuts!

    Cold feet

    you really need to be committed to the eating plan - both before surgery and until you reach maintenance. Otherwise, you might not reach your goals. Forgive yourself for this, but get back on the program and stick to it...

    What to eat?

    Protein first the size of a deck of cards, then veggies, you should be full then. Don't drink with meals 30 min. prior to or after. Try to get as much protein as you can. Stay away from carbs and starches and sugars.

    I was in the same position as you a couple months ago (and I'm 5'2" too!). ...was going to post a more in depth reply here, but @Healthy_life2 just reminded me with her post above that I am overdue in posting in The Maintenance Thread she quoted. Will work on that now and link it up from here to avoid double posting...

    They pretty much they ask you if you have any questions.. they tell you who will be attending the surgery with your doctor.. Blood test and they tell you what you can and can't do a week before your date... I just had my pre-op 7-30-2019 I go under 8-2-19 Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-J727AZ using BariatricPal mobile app

    Peanut butter?

    I didn't start eating nut butters until after I was done losing weight because of all the calories. I do eat it regularly now though, for the very reason I avoided it before.

    I would stay away from protein bars personally . They pack as many calories as a candy bar and can be addictive to some. You know yourself better then anyone though. I was eating on average 800 calories at 6 months out. Breakfast. 1 egg and either turkey sausage or 2 slices of bacon ( I still eat this today ) Lunch. tuna creation pouch and 1/4 cup of cottage cheese Dinner. 1 rib and part of a baked potato with cheddar cheese ect. Snack. Almonds This is just one day I had logged in my 6 months. Most of the time I could not finish a meal and would go back and finish later instead of snacking on other things.

    Your stall story

    Thanks for y'all input. I'm going on little over 3 three weeks and not a single pound lost. Not gaining so keeping that positive thought in mind. Getting very frustrating, but gotta remember slow and steady. [emoji849] Sent from my SM-N960U using BariatricPal mobile app

    Low Vitamin A?

    Thank you, ms.sss! Did it take long for your levels to go up, and do you still take extra vitamin A? Sent from my SM-N960U using BariatricPal mobile app
