    Pumpkin pie

    https://blog.bariatriceating.com/2015/10/no-pie-pumpkin-pie/ Ingredients One 15-ounce can Libby's pumpkin purée ⅓ cup Truvia sugar replacer or ⅔ cup Splenda granulated ½ teaspoon salt 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon ½ teaspoon ground ginger ¼ teaspoon ground cloves 2 large eggs One 12-ounce can evaporated milk Splenda sweetened whipped cream Instructions Preheat oven to 350° F. Mix the pumpkin, Truvia, salt, cinnamon, ginger, and cloves in a large bowl. Beat in the eggs. Gradually stir in evaporated milk. Pour into glass or ceramic baking dish. Bake until knife inserted near the center comes out clean - this time can vary greatly depending on how big a baking dish you use. Cook until done, but if you use a pie plate, 25 to 40 minutes is a guide. Cool on wire rack, then either serve at room temperature or chill. Serve with whipped cream.

    I am so proud of you on so many levels. You were able to identify the sources of negativity, address them, face them, and advocate for yourself! Hurray for you!!!! I have no doubt that you will be totally successful with your weight loss after having surgery. I did not lose but a few pounds in my 6 month pre-op period. But I have been hugely successful after surgery. I don't think your doctor can accurately predict how every individual's body will respond to surgery. I can tell that you are determined to make this work, and that is what it takes. When you think of it, it's kind of silly and unrealistic to think that someone who has wrecked their metabolism by dieting, and who needs WLS as a last resort, will be able to take off loads of weight before surgery. If we could have done it, we would have already, right? Please don't let that idea rattle your confidence. If anything, let it make you more determined than ever to prove him wrong. Your coworkers are being just plain selfish. Period. You take care of yourself right now, OK? Please keep us posted about your journey!

    3 weeks post op down only 10 lbs

    it's a stall. Your 500-600 calories a day is fine - and do NOT worry about calories at this point. Only focus on protein and fluid intake. you are what we call a "lightweight" and you're not going to lose nearly as fast as someone who starts at over 300 lbs. Combine that with the stall and....you're probably right where you need to be. Just stick to your plan. The weight will start to drop again once the stall breaks, and you WILL lose your excess weight as long as you stick to your surgeon's plan.

    Down from HW 303 to CW 264

    I'm grateful for this tool but it has turned me off from food altogether. I think all the changes has lead by body to boycott me. I want nothing when I eat I feel instant nausea. I decided to work on hydration. So at nearly 6 weeks post-op I'm still on shakes and crystal light. Sent from my SM-G965U using BariatricPal mobile app

    Gained 6lbs overnight

    fluffy you are scared straight. You obviously are not the same person you were at your peak weight. You went from one extreme to the other and now it seems you have no balance the other way. Nothing wrong with that you are motivated by the fear of going back. Im typically motivated by results but Ive said it dozens of times and will continue to do so. Didnt get this weight by eating a slice of cake on my birthday got this way because I had zero control and ate like every day was my birthday.
