  16. Are you exercising? For me Exercising is essential, my body just does not repond without it. My surgery was on July 16th. Are you watching your carb and fat intake? you should not be eating more than 5% fat or 5% carbs in your food choices, look and the label and see how much carb and fat and then straight across from the grams it should say % and should be 5 or less of each. DRINK YOUR Water and make sure your getting enough Protein daily. Please feel free to reach out to me if you have any questions, Good Luck Pamela
  17. I made a roasted chicken and steamed some broccoli rab with 1/2 teaspoon of olive oil and pureed them together in added some chicken stock to soften just a bit more and a tiny amount of pecoreno Romano cheese and the Yummy factor was off the charts! Could only eat 3 oz's but hey I had lunch the next day. I am also a cottage cheese eater, so I also like 1/4 cup CC mixed with a spoon of no sugar apple/pear sauce, cold and refreshing.
  18. 100% agree! I used to be able to eat and eat and eat! I had sleeve on July 16th and let me tell you that decision saved my life. Now as ml75 said my stomach is as big as a short highlighter and I can only eat about 3-4 ounces and I am satisfied and full. I like many had tried every diet on the market, lost 10 pounds here and there and would eventuality gain i tall back! Knowing myself, I knew I needed structure added to my eating and got that from my sleeve. I am still in mushies stage and choosing to eat the lowest possible amount of carbs and fat I can find, which is soooo much easier than everybody thinks, you just have read your labels, its there in black and white. They stress Protein, protein, protein because when you go into weightless mode by eating protein first you don't burn muscle as you lose. I love the feeling of restriction after like 4 bites of food, to quote ml75, "no room, no binge" Working out on my treadmill everyday and have dropped 20 pounds already. Getting the sleeve is the easy part! Good Luck Pamela
