Thank you. Yep, I am a man. It's really not fair how much faster we lose. I had my first appt with my NUT on march 30 this year and I was 373lbs then. We started following her guidelines on April 1. I got sleeved on June 5, and was about 325 then. So, if your going from since surgery, I'm down 72, but from the start of the journey, 115. I've been working really hard and my wife, who is a non-op, is such a great supporter that she has lost 54! She is my hero.

Never even heard of such a thing before in my life. But I was at a flea market today and this lady was making some so we bought a piece. I ate a tiny little bite and yes, it tasted exactly how it sounds. If you like chocolate (yes) and you like bacon (yes yes) it's good. In my past life I would have bought every piece she had, but I took my little bite and got out of there.
Went home and grilled some stuffed jalapeños with shrimp and fat free cream cheese....yum yum. Also had a couple of bites of veggie chips and homemade guacamole. I love it that I can eat sensibly and still enjoy it.

I know. But it seems like my body is like, what are you doing and is completely comfortable in the 200s. I know I'll get there. Believe me, I am more than happy with the loss to date, but am so looking forward to seeing a number that starts with a "1".

Struggling here because I feel like I've hit a stall that's never ending. Frustrated, but more people are noticing the weight loss....just have to remind myself, the scale is going to move. Not sure I'll meet my Labor Day goal by Labor Day, but I will keep pushing!

kamrie37 got a reaction from LauraTarry in How Long Until You Ate Salad, Steak, Bread?
I eat nuts as well with no problem.
One thing I do is measure my food. I measure about 2.5 ounces and eat that. If I eat too much, it does sit really heavy. I think my eyes still think I can eat a bigger portion, so, weighing out my food is a good idea for me. For example, the other night, I ate 2.5 ounces of pork steak and 1 ounce or brocolli for dinner. I measured so I knew exactly how much I ate. I did feel really full after, so next time, I am going to either forgo the broccolli, or if I really want that, I would decrease the meat by .5.
