    Best cardio workout

    Hi all, I have been working out doing a Wii exercise called My Fitness Coach for almost a year. My surgery was 15 months ago. I used to get a great workout doing this, but lately since I've lost so much weight, it is getting easier and easier. I want something that will give me a good workout and be a challenge for me. I used to break out in a big sweat and be so tired afterwards. Now I barely break a sweat and would do more if I wanted. I would love to do cardio on the Wii, but I am open to any other suggestions. Thanks!

    Why am I a Slowwwwwwwww loser?

    Oh, it has been 15 months since my surgery and I still have some weight to lose. I know it will come off eventually. You have come so far, so try not to get discouraged.

    Don't worry, you will get to where you want. It will take its time. Not everyone will lose the same way.

    Cold all the time.

    I usually am. I don't know why but It's better than being hot and sweaty all the time.

    How many oz are you eating?

    When I first started out, I could only fit in maybe 1-2 oz. Since I am a year post op now, I can get in between 4-6 oz. I try to eat every 2-3 hours, so I don't necessarily take in that much at a time. I usually have my 3 main meals (4oz) and 2 small snacks.

    Hot crap dip!

    sounds yummy!
  10. I am a year out and can certainly eat more food. I try to eat the right things so I don't fall back into the habit.

    im not convined

    You have to put in the effort also. Remember your sleeve is only a tool. The sleeve will work. You are not a failure. Don't give in because it is too early to say that. Eat your protein first and remember to get in your fluids. Stop eating things that you shouldn't. If you do, then you will set up yourself for failure later. You are definitely going to lose weight because you can't eat the amount you used to, but you need to do it right. Try to eat the right things instead of the wrong things. Message me if you have any questions. I had the surgery a year ago and have lost 106 lbs and am still losing. I have messed up along the way, and I have learned from it. Good luck.
  12. I see that you are from Nashville. Who was your surgeon? I got my surgery in Nashville at Centennial Medical Center and used Dr. Houston. I live in Cookeville. My surgeon also wanted me at 400-600 calories and 15 grams carbs in the beginning. Now I am a little over a year out and am doing 900 calories and at least 50 gr carbs daily. I did that for 3 months and then upped my calories. I have hit a few stalls and that is normal. Good luck and message me if you want.

    I got mine at Kroger in the organic section.

    It's awesome! I put it in my yogurt also.
  15. I totally agree. It is their choice, though, and they will suffer the consequences if they keep doing it.
