  1. Blondiee,

    I was probably straining the top end of a 22 at my heaviest. They weren't button popping, but they were pretty tight and I'm sure that being at the top of one size is partially the reason why it seems to be taking longer to go down a size. And things are finally loos enough that I think I am at least within 5-10 pounds of a new size so it's not like there's no end in sight. I think I just got down a little bit down seeing so many people talking about how drastic their body transformations have been when they have lost fewer pounds than I have. I'll get there though, I'm sure, and I'm grateful to everyone who replied with encouragement and support!


  2. Egg drop Soup was a delicious lifesaver for me. I cut the recipe below in half for one serving...and of course that's still going to be too much. I'd also add a scoop of unflavored Protein powder.

    Prep Time: 5 minutes Cook Time: 10 minutes Total Time: 15 minutes Ingredients:
    • 4 cups chicken broth or stock
    • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
    • 1 -2 green onions, minced
    • 1/4 teaspoon white pepper
    • Salt to taste
    • A few drops of sesame oil (optional)

    In a wok or saucepan, bring the 4 cups of chicken broth to a boil. Add the white pepper and salt, and the sesame oil if using. Cook for about another minute.
    Very slowly pour in the eggs in a steady stream. To make shreds, stir the egg rapidly in a clockwise direction for one minute. To make thin streams or ribbons, gently stir the eggs in a clockwise direction until they form.
    Garnish with green onion and serve.

  3. It doesn't take long on this forum to become a Madame Rev fan.

    How can we start & keep interesting conversations going? Start a book club here? Discuss movies? Funny things that happen to us during the day? Show off our pets? Tell what we're fans of? I have no idea!

    Yes, we're all here originally because we had WLS but I've come to look forward to seeing posts from many of you! Wish you lived around the corner!


    Indeed! Five Star Thread!!!!!
