  1. To second what stacy said- Richard simmons and Leslie sansone are for any level AND will offer modifications for lowering and/or raising the intensity. Leslie sansone videos are called Walk at Home. You are literally walking in place in your home. She has multiple lengths as well- from the 1 mile happy walk to the 5k fat burner

  2. I know a lot of exercise enthusiasts argue that you don't need any fancy gadgets to work out, but I find that my Jawbone UP2 fitness tracker is really motivating! It's a lot of fun to see your steps and have duels with people. I hate working out, mainly because it's painful at my size, but having the activity tracker makes it a little more fun, and you see instant results with it. Not weight loss, but at least you can really see what you've just accomplished! There are tons of options out there, check them out!

    I like my fitbit for the same reason! I'm more motivated to move because I'm in competitions with friends!

  3. I drink click. I like it and it's easy ro make

    really T_T

    finally I found someone T_T

    your nutrition is okay with it?

    how is it? dose it have that smell like the Protein powder strong smell?

    dose it make you full for at least an hour?

    sorry i ask too much (/^\)

    Are you asking if my nutritionist is ok with it? Honestly, I didn't ask. She's not my babysitter. She gives me information and I use that information to make my own decisions.

    I haven't really paid attention to whether or not it has a smell though.

  4. searching for item - will help me stick to my plan. What are your favorite covered dish recipes??



    i am not a cook/baker et al

    if i put 4 pots of Water on stove

    "usually" i will be successful that they won't burn LOL

    i asked my sister to bring her "famous" artichoke" dip on thanksgiving

    the reason i asked her to bring it

    is because i wouldn't touch it with a 10 foot pole (yeach)

    i bring things to gatherings that i hate!!

    that way i'm not tempted to eat any of it

    sorry i don't have any healthy suggestion to give you

    maybe you can buy something you don't like too

    (can be hard to do, since i like everything LOL)

    same thing for halloween (hard to find candy i don't like) !!!!

    glad you did well with thanksgiving

    pat yourself on the back :rolleyes:

    stay strong for the holiday season

    it is hard for many (me) people

    i know you can do it!!


    Your strategy is the exact opposite of what I was thinking, so I took a little while to wrap my brain around it!

    I was thinking of things I could take, that I knew I could eat. It never occurred to me to take something I WOULDN'T eat!

  5. Yes, I know there are many, many, many ways to prepare traditional dishes in a healthy manner, but I'm looking for opinions. Have you tried any of the above recipes? Did they travel well?

  6. I'm entering my first Christmas season after WLS. I failed miserably at Halloween, held my own during Thanksgiving and want to do well during the Christmas season (especially since it lasts a long time). I already have 3 functions that will require me to bring a dish and I'm searching for an item or items that will help me stick to my plan. What are your favorite covered dish type recipes?

  7. I agree with all the advice about exercise- the fitter you are going into surgery, the easier the recovery.

    I was advised, by someone on here, to practice deep breathing prior to surgery. One of the biggest problems after surgery is developing pneumonia. My nurse was blown away the first time I used the incentive respirator. I met my first goal the first time, so she upped it. I met that one too! I really think it was mostly due to having practiced those deep breaths prior to surgery!

  8. Schedule to have ds November 23rd and I'm having financial issues. From the time this year has started everything has went wrong, we'll here goes: my family had a $700 decrease in income so we we're evicted from our home. So myself and my children lived with my parents for a month and my husband stayed with a friend. Lucky it wasn't longer we find a place. We did go for a while till June hit . It was my daughter's sweet 16 now we didn't go all out we had a simple cookout . I kinda went overboard with the cake and photographs. So July come and my car got repo than in august my husband lost his job. Well he found one quick but we paid rent weekly so we got behind and we got evicted from there. Now for the past month we have been living in a motel and I just don't know if I will be able to eat properly. I'm sorry for rambling but just need some advice????????????????

    I was thinking of you and wondering how you were. Did you go through with the surgery or postpone it?

  9. Just for clarification... the powder room is for women only, but men can still see it and comment. It isn't hidden from their eyes. Also, the post will come up on the recent timeline on the app and not everyone can see which "room" it is posted in. I think it depends on the device you are using.

    Now I'm really curious... what was your post?

  10. I'm a couple years in with my 2nd Mirena and think it's just about the best invention in the world. I had the first one put in after my son was born. I loved it so much I had a new one done when the first "expired".

    Each time, the insertion was uncomfortable and I felt pretty crappy the day of. I didn't have cramps or anything, just didn't feel good. Day after, I was fine.

  11. Sooo... just my opinion- I would reschedule the surgery. The stress of the position you are in will make it difficult to focus on caring for yourself.

    Also, Protein shakes, Vitamins, etc can be expensive. Do you have a plan for continuing to afford them when money gets tough?

    Do you have insurance that is paying for your surgery? I have good insurance but still had to pay 3000.00 for the surgery. That didn't include all the copays and pre op testing.
