    Sorry sweetness. Just the talk of bacon, potatoes, gravy, butter, etc turns me off. But I do appreciate the flowers

    Before, and currently. Still 40lbs to go.
    Think I need to go buy a belt. Haven't been comfortable wearing one in years.

    You can expect to see about 1" more penis per 35lbs of weight loss. Of course this is limited to the the amount of fat surrounding yours.
    I have lost just shy of 100lbs & can say it is verry noticeable. And with less fat around it, holding it up, it does hang lower (appear even larger) flacid.

    O.T.R. sleever got a reaction from parisshel in Fell Off the Wagon...How do I get re-started?   
    You can take a page out of a sleevers book and do a diet reset. Start over like you just had surgery, log everything just as you did before. It'll take a couple weeks without bad carbs for those cravings to go away.
    Unfortunately white carbs create a chemical reaction in your system that causes you to crave more of them. I've had to reset a couple times in the past couple years. It isn't easy, but if I can do it, you can too.

    Obviously, I'm not speaking from experience. But, I have seen quite a few ladies that suffered with weight related PCOS on this forum who have conceived after losing weight. Many times before the reached their goals. In fact most of the times I have seen those type of posts it was because they had concerns about conceiving too early.
    Just a note, I don't recall any of the concerns they had ever actually transpiring.

    Hi there!
    First off, let me reassure you that you made a huge step forward to becoming a new healthier you.
    Ok, so your surgery was 4/5 days ago. At this point you really shouldn't even be very concerned with Protein. Hydration is key right now. Do all you can yo get to +- 64 oz/day of hydration. Once you accomplish that goal then start working In Proteins as you can tolerate it.
    Remember, everybody is different. Don't compare your ability to consume to others. You will progress through your dietary steps at whatever pace your body allows (just not faster than doctors recommendations). You are going to love the new you.

    I think it looks just fine. Here's the kicker, get as much use as you can out of it, very soon it will be falling off of you. You are doing great. Keep it up;)

    I'm glad to see this thread is still alive and encouraging those that are feeling nervous about this decision. Here I am 19 months post op & am so happy & grateful for this miracle of modern medicine. I've gotten so much of myself back, so much more than I ever knew I lost. I can honestly say, I don't have a minute of regret. Yes I do occasionally miss stuffing my face with decadent Desserts & such, but I never miss what it did to me. It's been a long time, but I can honestly say, I LOVE ME.

    O.T.R. sleever got a reaction from DeezJeanz in Protein pills.....   
    The unfortunate reality is that those Protein shots are no be benefit to the human body. They get most of their protein from gelatin/collagen which our bodied cannot utilize. Yes, I know the name on the shot leads you to believe that you are getting whey protein, but unfortunately this is not the case.
    Make sure to read the ingredients on the label. The best protein supplements will be pure whey isolate. Also egg whites, hemp, soy, & milk Proteins are good too. But if the label contains the words collagen or Gelatin, don't buy it. A it is capable of doing is separating you from your money.

    O.T.R. sleever got a reaction from Susan_B in Protein pills.....   
    I have never seen Protein pills. The main reason that they have historically been unavailable is because of the sheer volume of Protein needed by our bodies. To get 30 grams of protein through capsules you need 7-10 "horse pills". You think choking down a Protein Drink is hard? This would be next to impossible.
    Furthermore, keep in mind that all Proteins are not created equal. There are a number of Protein drinks & shots out there that are of zero nutritional benefit.
