  5. Hi guys I had sx Oct 25 2012...and quickly dropped down to 185-188...However, i been stuck at this weighy since feb!! I work out..eat within my range..sometimes 140 g of protein a day!! When I went to my follow up appointment I told them about my frustrations because according to the BMI chart I should weigh around 140...I am 5'6. Well they did a Body Scan Analysis on some fancy machine that breaks up ur body composition....welll come to find out my body weight mostly consist of dense muscle mass...and that I am retaining water because hardly drink water or fluids...over 5 lbs!!! And it determined I omly have 18 lbs to go!! That seems so much more doable than 48!!! Well I started insanity and Shakeology so hopefully gettij g this weig ht off in a few weeks....the moral of the story.... COMMUNICATE with your Surgeon!! They know what's best for u and ur situation

    my before and after

    Sure..I love it its the polar fit watch/heart rate monitor....it comes with a strap and a hr monitor that u strap on before u work on..when ur about to start ur work out u press the start button it keeps track of ur heart rate and calories burned while woeking out....its very precise..more accurate than the machines at the gym...

    Jersey in the house?

  8. Sure I got the Polar brand F4 I think it was like 90 dollars they have different ones at different prices... I got mine from sports authority
  9. I am 5'6 and thank u all.... Its been hard but I am going in the right direction... Def tracking my food and cardio have worked best for me.. I purchased the polar heart rate monitor which gave me a better picture of how many calories I burn working out.... Average 700-1000 iin an hour and a half.. Def get ur protein in... I try to get at least 100 gm in which sometimes is super hard..... Have faith I know we can all achieve our goals
