    14 Weeks out

    Seems like yesterday you and I had just started. Now we are more than half way to goal. I am loving my sleeve!

    No appetite at all.....

    Barbara you are just a couple of weeks ahead of me. I'm in the same boat. I don't care if I ever eat again. I am mostly living on protein drinks and a little food. When I think about it I find it wonderful but baffling. Weight is coming off and I don't feel like I am dieting. What more can I ask for?

    post-op 3 days

    Really small sips. The first couple of weeks can be a little rough. Go slow with sips and follow the directions your doctor gave you. You will be fine in no time. Your stomach is very swollen right now. It takes a while for the swelling to go down. Feel better!

    Heading out Tomorrow!!!

    The big quake was a little south of Mexicali, MX. LA only felt it a little. Not a big deal there at all.
  13. Welcome home! Rest, sip and walk. You will be better than new before you know it.

    Tortillas are No Go!

    Some days I just can't eat much at all. I think I may take bigger bites or eat too fast without realizing what I'm doing. Last night I had chicken. I cut tiny, tiny pieces and ate slow. No problems.
  15. Actually I have lots of energy. When you start burning fat instead of carbs for fuel you get energized. The low calories are not a problem at all as long as you keep the Protein up and carbs down. I have been walking 2-3 miles 6 days a week for almost 2 years so I was already used to that. I walk faster now and don't huff and puff as much. At the moment I walk 3 days a week and workout at Curves 3 days. You might want to incorporate some walking into your day now.

    Did everyone get a card?

    I don't use a card. I have just ordered off the regular menu and get a take home box. One night recently I planned to share with my husband but the place wanted $6 to share. I don't mind paying a couple of dollars to share but $6 was too much when a 1/2 rack of rib dinner was $9. I love bringing food home. There is something very cool about paying once and having 4 meals. Most things I see on the children's menu isn't fit for starving, wild animals. Why can't kids just get a small portion of real food?
  19. Its not strange to me. I felt crappy at the same BMI. I woke up tired, it was a struggle to get my socks on, tie my shoes or cut my toe nails. I had trouble keeping up with my walking buddies even though they are 10 & 15 years older then me. Just the 30 pounds gone has made a big difference. My quality of life was really suffering. Being blah and depressed all the time is not a good way to be. I also didn't have the motivation to start yet another diet. I kept trying but just couldn't mange to get started.

    Tortillas are No Go!

    Moving faster is good. :thumbup1: I find they digest/are tolerated so much better than meat. If you like Beans eat some!
