    4 Months Post Op!

    I think your doing great! keep going you must be very proud of your accomplishment.
  4. Hi I think your doing great yes we all wish for big numbers but im just over 4 months and it has s l o w e d down considerably. I was told no carbs as well but if i eat them I use sprouted grain ezikiel bread its low glycemic doesnt spike the insulin im not avertising them but ive done my homework so it comes in pasta and bread if i want carbs i have healthy ones. Its not a perfect science but you have to see what works for you. Dont be afraid to experiment try new things its a blank canvas try a different work out walk 5 minutes run 5 minutes try you will be surprised at what you find. Good luck!

    Losing 3kg a week .

    Hi keep it real if that was the case the world would be sleeved. Lol You will loose alot in the beginning then something funny happens you start to heal which means you can eat more thats where the fun starts you are going to have t start making smart choices and picking your own battles its not a cure all or a quick fix its a tool and your gonna have to learn how to work it.

    Thanksgiving Holiday

    Hi a word of advice you wont be eating much . Being so close to your surgery date your stomach is swollen nothings going down , I was fortunate I was allowed pureed fds right out from hospital most people I see are on fluids its up to your doc. You can participate in spirit and being present but not in the gorging part lol lucky you. Im 4 months out and went to Toronto for their thanksgiving it was a mind game being Italian we know how to pack on at holiday meals I skipped the pasta had some turkey gravy and stuffing. Although I wanted veggies salad and mashed potato I really did I couldnt. We ate out alot as well I came home expecting a 10lb gain lost 2 im ok with that. Listen to your body Have an awesome Thanksgiving good luck to you.
  10. lol very cute story , I had a 1/4 cup of grey goose black cherry noir over ice I sipped on it all night was happy all night not crazy not drunk but a nice even buzz . So I felt i did well in the calorie range and was able to enjoy. Pre surgery couldnt feel anything till 2nd gg martini so im glad you had fun. I hope you feel better.

    Gentlemen... Please advise me! Re: Cheating

    Hi, let me start by saying you look amazing! You are an inspiration. I have to say I think you answered your own question in your original post. You said you loved him but are not in love with him. Bam there it is. why go through life like that? I have a bad situation at home, Im trying to make it work I have a seven year old but your kids are grown, a little easier. Hes clingy because YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL! He screwed up big time. If home life is not what makes you happy then you know what to do. You dont need him anymore you can find someone better.
