  1. I too have been so frustrated! Seems like the scale has not moved in a month! I only weigh in on Sundays. I go to the gym 3 x /week and do somewhat (usually 4 pple there) of a personal training class. In good weather, i walk on the other days. I stopped logging onto MFP due to the time it takes and quite frankly sick of thinking of food 24/7!

    However - am i the only one who wonders "am i normal"? I know everyone is different but oh boy - it would be so nice to know you are doing the right thing or the weight coming off is at a "normal" pace. I started this process Aug of 2013 and weighed 337. The morning of my surgery i was 292. At one of my post-op visits the nut said i was losing too fast and she was concerned. Damn her - she cursed me!! Been like a snail's pace every since!! Seriously wonder if I am done losing! Can anyone else elaborate if you feel the same way?

    Also - is anyone chewing gum yet?

    And one more thing - I am leaving in a few days to an all inclusive place in the DR. I have one suitcase of food! This is nuts! Protein Drinks - bars - crackers etc! Has anyone ventured to any place like this yet? Part of me is excited and part of me is scared!!


  2. I had my surgery Dec 10 and just started phase 4 of soft foods. That seems WAY too high of calories and so forth. I actually had just this discussion over the phone w/ a nut from my center yesterday b/c i wanted to start tracking via my fitnesspal.com. She stated they do NOT like to tell us exactly how many cal or fat and so forth b/c it is more important at this point still for liquids and Protein. I pushed her for a calorie # and she said 700 - 800. Those numbers (yours) really scare me ! I would call the surgeon ASAP! Just my 2 cents!
