    shewolf. NSV- non scale victory about speed up the weight loss. what exercise are you doing? how much. I hit the stall and even though I was exercising min 45 min per day the weight doesn't go down, I was told to change the time of my routing. so I switch the evening exercise with mid day one and it help. So another thing try sometimes to increase the calories. just for one day. to 1200. I mean do something like that to help your body to shake your stall.

    Desperately seeking advice

    Hi, I would suggest to start doing cardio work out. I notice myself that I start looking weight after i start doing elliptical. I start with only 5 min per day. I know sound funny but I wasn't exercise person at all before surgery. so as soon as doctor gave me green light at 4th week to do work out. I bought myself elliptical and step on it. It was terrible. after 5 min barely walking I step off it and fall on my bed thinking I would die... ( really) but I continue doing that 5 min per day. when I feel that I am not dying anymore from 5 min I increase time to 10 min. and my advise. WATCH something when you do it. it help. at least it helped me. now I am crazy person with my elliptical. I can stay up to 90 min at once. and sometimes step on it 2x a day. you will see that your weight will go down after you start doing cardio.... Good Luck.

    Post op diet question

    I wasn't allowed fruit in the first 2 weeks and after that only berries because some fruit has some part which hard to digest. so I would suggest you to stay off them for now.

    Congratulation on your achievement. Your post gives all of us support and telling that we can do it too. Keep the weight falling off and Good Luck.
  10. during my liquid diet I chicken broth help with hunger. I didn't have any limitation in calories so I can drink 5 Protein shakes + as much chicken broth + Water as much as I want. so whenever I feel hungry I just drink the chicken broth and the hunger subside. Good Luck with your surgery.
