    The oils I frequently use I listed earlier. I also use grapeseed oil and jojoba oil which is great if u have sensitive skin because it is very similar to the oils our body reproduce naturaly. Ive also heard great things about almond oil for skin and stretch marks I may add that to my next concoction. lol.....those are a few suggestions but I encourage you to do your own research everyones skin is different but I dont think u can go wrong with natural oils its the chemicals in all beauty products we buy that im afraid of

    I was sleeved on 7/9 lost 12 lbs preop Date of surgery 233 I am now 203 total of 42 lbs lost. I cant wait to see a number under 200. I believe I could be doing better but with my busy schedule I've not fit in exercise as much as I should. However I follow my food plan MOST days lol not always perfectly, but im happy! Its a journey and I dont want to be so strict that I don't enjoy it. Ive wasted enough of my life worrying and being miserable. I got a second chance and im living now! God bless us all and our new healthier lifestyle!

    Fitbit flex vs. body media fit

    I dont know much about body media but I can say that I looove my fitbit flex!! At the time I purchased it I compared it to jawbone and nike fuel band and the flex was the best. I love that it links up with other apps like mfp and walgreens where I earn points and discounts. I charge it once a week, it's water proof, and I often forget I have it on.

    Don't worry you'll get it soon enough. I dont think any of us are pros at this yet. It's still early on and its a big adjustment. I try not to kick myself when I mess up or eat something wrong because we are still learning what works and what doesn't. Just give it time

    I thought the same and was worried I stretched my stomach already but as posted earlier I think it just depends bon the consistency of the food smooth or pureed I can eat more of but I can't eat the same amount with meats. Im still having trouble at times with eating slowly Foods that some said took them an hour I sometimes finish in half that time.

    I too track cals on mfp and broke my stall with a 6 lbs lost. Scale is now stuck again for the past few days, im hoping its not another stall. I had a couple guilty plesures on the 19th(my bday) and I have not walked or worked out this wk as I was before. So if it is a stall I can only blame myself! I jus havnt been in the mood to workout but I hope I can get back on track real soon. Hows everyone else with working out is it still just walking for some?

    Any july 8 sleevers?

    I gave up on them awhile ago. I just cant tolerate them, I get sooo nauseous. I get my protein in with isopure water it has 40g of protein and then when I choose my meals I choose protein 1st. I also sometimes drink slimfast 321 low carb shake for breakfast in addition to the isopure, it has 20g of protein. So most days I get all my protein in that way sometimes over. Its the water I struggle with getting enough of.

    Melhendy thank you ...Im a little relieved to know im not alone on this. I have and will continue to stick to the program but I was worried that maybe this just isn't working out for me and id be stuck at this weight forever only having lost 16 lbs since surgery....if you dont mind please share any answers your doc may give you on this...
