    My nurse ok'd some sugar-free Halls Vitamin C drops. My throat hurt so bad, I was really glad I brought these to suck on once they determined I had no leaks and were letting me have small sips of Water.

    M2G got a reaction from ProudGrammy in You Should Not Consider Bariatric Surgery if..   
    I also read Jen Larsen's book and was horrified at how willy-nilly she jumped into having a DS (IMO it's one of the most drastic of all WL surgeries) and it was funny because she totally DID think that losing the weight would solve all of her problems and was bitterly disappointed that while losing weight was great she did not magically get the "life" she thought she wanted once the weight was gone.
    Anyway, LV, as usual this is a great post. One of the things that I HATE more than anything around here is people who are post-op, pop in with a statement like "the sleeve is the easiest thing I've ever done, I get to eat whatever I want and life is so grand!" I don't want to belittle anyone or take away their success or rain on their parade but there is just a LOT of work that goes into making any WLS a successful one in the long term scope of things. A LOT OF WORK.
    Nothing worth having is ever easy. Successful families, marriages, careers, and yes even weight-loss all take hard work.

    Hey girls ...I have zero time to read and catch up, but wanted to pop in to say hi. I'm up up up...hate it. I have got to figure something out. I'm still commuting 2+ hours a day for my job 5x a week and my weekends are consumed with sitting and watching my daughter play club volleyball. So I sit in the car for my commute. I sit 8 hours a day at work and I sit in the car for the ride home and I sit every weekend watching my daughter play VB (seriously long tournaments every weekend) all the sitting is catching up to me and I can't stand it. Other than getting up at 4am to hit the treadmill, I just don't see being able to squeeze in time to work out. But I gotta do something, because the inactivity is killing me. Maybe I will try the 4am thing like 2-3 times a week and see what happens.
    My goal for 2015 is to MOVE more.
    Miss you ladies and wish I had free time to come here and visit.
    On a positive note, I do love the job and the pay is awesome, so I can't complain about that. Hope you all are well and just know that I miss each of you!

    No even though it "suggests" a quarter of your "regular" calories we do NOT go less than 500.
    Most of the sleevers who follow this are eating approximately 1,000-1,500 (maybe some do more but most of us are in the 1,200-1,400 range) on a FEED day (i.e. regular day) and then 2 days a week we cut it down to 500 for a FAST day (and a lot of us end up between 500-600 range --sometimes a tad more-- and call it good.)
    It's definitely worth trying.

    M2G got a reaction from BigGirlPanties in Protein bars ?   
    I totally ^^^agree^^^ with this.
    Also Pure Protein has a pretty good line of bars that you can find at Target, Wal-Mart, most grocery stores, etc.
    GNC sells Quest otherwise you have to order them online (not sure if any other stores are carrying them.)
    My advice is to only use them as necessary. I met someone at support group who was eating them as his primary source of protein.
    Also remember you can cut them in half and only eat half a bar. The other half won't go bad, and you can save it in a snack size ziplock for another day. I keep a Protein Bar in a hard-shell eyeglass case in my purse (not that you have a purse but maybe a glovebox in your car?) that is filled with a Protein Bar as an emergency in case there is just no other good choice around. I keep it in the case so it can live there for a few months without turning into a crumbled mess for carrying it around for so long.

    M2G got a reaction from OCSlim in Sleeve doubles in size after 1 year?   
    I'm 3 years post-op (today!! woo hoo!) and honestly I probably CAN eat double what I could at 2 weeks post-op (which was probably an ounce or two at a time). It's a natural expansion that happens as the swelling goes down and your stomach organ settles into it's new shape, size, etc.
    But I still max out at about 4oz of dense Protein. I will never again sit down and eat a 6oz, 8oz, 12oz steak...not going to happen from a physical standpoint.
    Also you need to remember, just because you CAN eat more doesn't mean you SHOULD eat more. Controlling your portion sizes is basically what lies at the root of this surgery. It can't do all the work for you, as you have to be in control of your portions.
