  1. Hey people! I recently started powerlifting. I had my first completion a few weeks ago, and since then I’ve decided to do a weight cut using an RP strength template. Problem is, it’s SO much food. I’m over 5 years out and figured I’d be ok. But when I measure based on macros, my goodness! Does anyone have any suggestions on how I can be successful with this as a WLS patient...without having to pay more money to RP and speak with a registered dietician?!
  2. i will do that. thank you!
  3. It's been so long since i've made a post. Im almost 6 years post op, and about a year ago i decided to get into powerlifting. i've gotten some gains, muscles AND fat. now im trying to lose the fat, and keep the muscle. i also dont eat a ton of meat. in fact, i prefer not to. i know one person who started bodybuilding after wls, however they eat meat. They also told me that they take in a lot of calories. is there anyone else here who powerlifts and understand my dilemma? i feel like i have to go back to the very basics and watch every single thing that i eat. that is so annoying and time consuming.
  4. indeed...there is definitely more accountability...
  5. cuz i was eating whatever i felt like eating, whenever i wanted. i didnt track anything. i hate tracking. i also stopped doing cardio. powerlifters are not big on cardio, so it wasnt a part of my program. however, i have since added it back to my program, because im not the average powerlifter. i need cardio. and as annoying and tedious as it is...i realize i have to start tracking again. i really hate that sh!t tho.
  6. you're right. i used to indulge in sweets when i first started lifting, but have since given that up. especially since i started to pack on the pounds. i brought that to a cold stop. now, im just trying to find what works for me in terms of lifting heavy and losing weight. there is definitely a science to it. since my case seems to be unique, i'll have to figure this one out on my own.
  7. i suppose i will have to supplement as well. it's just so hard because i can hear my surgeon saying "dont drink your calories". Then again, that was when i wasnt a competitive powerlifter. im sorry for the delayed response. i had my notifications turned off. thank you for your comment.
  8. i suppose i will have to look into it. i really dont want to spend anymore money. coaching and gym memberships cost enough! lol i apologize for the late reply. i had my notifications turned off. thank you for your comment.
  9. i'm so sorry for the super late reply! i have my notifications turned off. but thank you for the comment. my instagram name is seejennsgainz. tons of photos and videos there.
  10. i know...it's a lot. kind of an anomaly. i may have to write my own guide, if im successful! lol
  11. Thank you. Yes, I am.

    Increased attention post-weight loss...

    Understood, u learn how to deal tho.
  23. i was at a retirement party for an SVP. a lot of big wigs were there. while on the line for dinner, a former manager, who never really spoke to me when i worked for him, asked me in front of someone and whoever else was in earshot range "Jennifer you've lost weight! what did you do?!" i simply smiled a huge smile and said "I had surgery!", turned back around and laughed inside at the look of shock on his face. PRICELESS! i loved every minute of it. what a prick! HA! im laughing right now...i swear the look on his face was everything.

    Increased attention post-weight loss...

    i had this issue...i had a random man at work come up to me and say "whatever youre doing, keep doing it. you look great!" i dont kno that man from a hole in the wall. but ppl watch. your real friends wont even realize how big you were. but ppl def fall out of the woodworks, and it can f**k up ur psyche...but it's a sad truth. i had to learn not to feel a way about it. i kind of got joy out of curving the ppl who wanted no parts of me then, and tried to talk to me now. petty lol i kno, but still it helped at the time. when i went to my support group and discussed this, the facilitator said something that we hav to keep in mind. most times when we are overweight, we are less confident, less approachable. when we lose the weight, we feel more confident and we exude it. people pick up on that, and are compelled to say something. when you put it that way, perhaps people arent all that shallow. it wont stop though. as long as there are people who havent seen you in a good while. but you will discern who's genuine. keep up with your good work!
