    Youtube workout

    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

    I like Leslie Sansome, Denise Austin and.... Richard simmons. Most of his are videos where someone has recorded their tv while playing the video but they are fun and something different to add to the mix.
  3. You can do it! It's difficult in the beginning, but after a few days I was ok.
  4. Different surgeons prescribe different diets based on their experience and beliefs. Mine wasn't too different from yours- I could add 3 oz of lean protein 2 times a dya.

    Laziness even after weightloss

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

    Coffee Protein Powder! Is it safe for us?

    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.

    You know you lost weight when

    When you get chased down the hallway at work (at a school) because your co-worker didn't recognize you and you hadn't checked in at the front office.

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!

    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?

    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?

    In need of some crunch?

    I made pepperoni chips today and they were great! I dipped them in hummus.
  14. Wearing dresses! They used to be so unattractive/uncomfortable! Now I'm loving them!
  15. 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!
