    Had my surgery

    Congratulation on your weight loss so far! Talk with your doctor about your constipation issues. Many people here take Colace and Miralax to help solve this problem...myself included.

    Highlights and waiting post sleeve

    No color for 6 months?!?!?!?!?!? Is that only for RNY patients? My boss has RNY a year ago and her hair is not looking good. I have already colored my hair and I'm almost 3 months out. If you're going to color Branmuffin make sure you condition your hair well. I'd suggest a "hard" Protein treatment 2 weeks after...like an Aphogee treatment followed with a good moisturizer. Ask your stylist about it.
  12. I don't but I wanted to say congrats on your weight loss!! In my mind I was thing she MUST be tall to have that BMI at 200 pounds...then I read your signature and it was confirmed. I'm vertically challenged. lol

    What am i doing wrong?

    Thanks Gmanbat...I don't want is to be smaller. I'm doing squats to make sure it's more rounded and not flat.

    Carlotta I was totally thinking that too! Why would you have to fast the night before and be allowed a shake in the morning?? I would be bummed if I showed up for my surgery and it did not happen because of a miscommunication.

    What am i doing wrong?

    Yes, I was cleared to work out at my 6 week check up. I do cardio 5X a week....either my treadmill or elliptical and I just started the 30 squat challenge( the easy one)! What's the 30 squat challenge??? If I lose any more weight in my ass I won't have one! I gotta build some cheeks!!! Yes indeed! I don't want to have a flat rear end after I'm done losing this weight...uh uh!!! I don't know how to post an image here or I'd provide the chart for the 30 day squat challenge. Basically you do a set number of squats per day and work your way up to 175 at the end of 30 days. Day 1 - 30 squats Day 2 - 50 squats Day 3 - 75 squats Day 4 - 60 squats Day 5 - rest Google it and lot's of images/charts will come up showing you how many and how to proceed.

    Pureed stage

    YES!! That baked ricotta recipe is delicious!!

    Pureed stage

    You will get varying answers to your question because every surgeon doesn't have the same rules and/or guidelines. What does your surgeon or NUT advise? I will say the I was not allowed flounder during my puree stage. I stuck mainly with Protein shakes, strained cream Soups and Water. I chose not to have slider foods like mashed potatoes because it's a slippery slope for me. I agree with lsuchick. If you eat your protein first there's really no room for anything else at this stage.

    How important is your goal weight for you?

    Reaching my goal weight of 135 lbs is important to me. Being overweight all my life I want to know what my 5'2 frame will look like at that weight. The lowest I've reached was 185 on WW.

    Well, it seems like you have made up your mind already. I would say...don't send "her" off with squat...she's had a good run (right???)!!!! Celebrate the new you one year from now!!!
  23. What a nice NSV and reward!

    No judgement here. You have the instructions from your surgeon but, if you go out and have drinks (I'm guessing alcohol) and Mexican food will that throw you off track mentally?
