  1. So I'm almost 3 weeks out, I started my period last week and have not lost ONE darn pound since!!! I'm really discouraged but I'm hoping to blame my period!! I've been working out and I've been eating what I'm suppose to... Anyone else had this???
  2. Rick, thank you. That article was very informative!!
  3. Well it's been about a week after my "time" and im finally losing again!! So don't be discouraged!!
  4. I can say I feel like I will struggle with this too! Everything my family (extended) does revolves around eating out... so some of these suggestions are helpful!!! Some tips I can offer.... If you can shop at trader joes (havent tried whole foods but try there too) THEY HAVE A LOT OF FOODS that all you have to do is heat it up!! Very easy!!!! healthy and organic!! def invest in a george foreman!!! I love to cook turkey burgers on them!! although some meats get very dry, such as turkey.. because there is low fat in the meat and all the fat drains!! however I love to add some salsa and sometimes low fat cheese to the mixture ... it helps keep the meat moist!!! its hard eating out but there are a lot of places becoming more 'healthy' but I would always check the nutrition facts before ordering!! high sodium and sometimes carbs in things you would never guess! good luck to you!
  5. liliana.. I have not been tracking my food, the most cals im getting are from my protein shakes.. other than that im only able to eat an egg (breakfast), tuna w/light mayo (lunch) and small amount of protein for dinner( maybe a small meatball).. for snack I have some cheese.. I cant manage to get in more than a few bites so I cant even add in any fruit or veggies yet.. im working on it... and my stall has lasted about a week... I lost all that weight right before and right after surgery .. stopped about 2 weeks after surgery.
  6. I have been working on the larger muscles (although I had no idea they burn more fat, so thanks for that info!) I think my best bet is to ignore the scale as much as I can.. I have heard that its outta whack in the beginning.. I was doing so well i was losing everyday then it just stopped!!! so thats was why im asking.. but thank you for ur encouragement and knowledge!!
  7. It's so annoying!! Lol I am working out more than I ever have and NOTHING' I even woke up and I gained! Ugh. Curious though .... Are you able to get down all your Water and Protein?
  8. Btw, I was losing before my period started but then I also started my period and started eating soft foods at the same time... If that makes a diff.
  9. Soooo I'm set to be sleeved tomorrow at 7:30am!! I'm excited but as the days wound down Im getting very nervous!! Ive lost somewhere around 15lbs since I started this 2 week pre-op liquid diet! So far the weight loss is the only thing keeping me on the right path. My brain is on overload or withdrawals or something!! I feel like I'm breaking up with food, FOREVER!! I know this might seem stupid, but I really am kinda sad!! In my head I know there is nothing but good things to come out of this and I KNOW I will get over this!! I suppose I'm mourning the loss of my old ways, my old life. I was so comfortable and felt secure with the way I ate. Food has become a best friend, a confidante. On the other hand, it is what's made me unhappy for so long! I KNOW having surgery IS the best thing for me. I'm just having a hard time dealing with the mental right now! Did any of you guys go through this?? I need some encouraging words!!

    Pre-op Diet Nightmare!

    I am in the same boat!!! My surgery is scheduled for Jan 19!! This diet sucks but at the same time i am realizing how much my life (or lack thereof) was revolved around food!! I feel like I have more time on my hands and my brain is free to think about other things!! lol its reallllllly hard doing this... You are lucky you get to at least eat some food still !! My diet is strictly liquids, including Soup but soup that has NO chunks or anything in it.... Plain ol' Cream soup! Oh yum.. =/ The only trick I have, is to keep busy and also keep a bottle of Water or whatever you can drink in hand at all times!! Good luck to you!!
