    Katrinakit got a reaction from ProudGrammy in So where are 30 somethings shopping?   
    I think I like the idea of getting the biggest size at a normal size clothing store and just trying it on periodically until it fits and then I know I can shop there

    Katrinakit got a reaction from CLN.BK in You know you lost weight when   
    Lol I had lost a significant amount of weight in my early thirties (which I of course gained back) and I realized the lower poles in the closet were not too low. It's just that my shirts were so huge they had been touching the ground. Once I was wearing normal sizes the poles were suddenly, magically an appropriate height!

    I wanted to get a goal outfit and realized I don't even know where normal sized women my age shop?! My 30 something friends are plus sized and my 20 something friends buy dresses so short I considered getting one as a shirt. I like girly, slightly bohemian style, similar to anthropologie. But nothing really jumped out at me on their website. Any other suggestions? Thanks!

    Katrinakit got a reaction from Inner Surfer Girl in Flip turns (in the pool)   
    Ok so when i was a teenager I could swim laps for hours. Then I stopped swimming for 20 years. Now I can still basically swim but I have developed an irrational fear of flip turns. Today I decided to conquer that fear so I did a LOT of them. And I have 2 main problems. 1) I keep getting Water in my goggles and 2) my ears don't equalize properly (even when I blow out the whole time) Any swimmers with pointers?

    Let's encourage each other! Say what your plan is and when you started and when it ends. I'm on a modified Optifast plan (includes 1 small, home cooked meal a day) and am on day 8/30! The final day is clear, sugar free liquids only. I can't wait for this phase to be over! Who else?

    Katrinakit reacted to Cervidae in NOT SURE WHATS GOING ON   
    Stalls are normal and necessary! We've all worried about them. I had more than average, most likely due to my PCOS, and I was here making similar posts, scared that I would be stuck at whatever weight I was forever. In fact, I have a 2-3 week stall every month, that's just my body's "normal". And yet, here I am, 9 months later and down 150 pounds since surgery. It all adds up, and worrying about it is just needless and adversely affects your mental and physical health anyway. Just keep up with your Water intake, Protein, and Vitamins, and soon you'll feel silly for ever worrying about this.

    How many calories are in premier Protein? I was only given a few Protein options as well. I wouldn't say this week was super rough but I have definitely had my moments. I had major nausea the day of surgery and have had significant pain in my incisions. Mainly I am just sooo sick of liquid Protein.
    Sorry you are having such a hard time. Just remember that this is such a short time period in the scheme of things. And I will try and remember that as well.

    Katrinakit reacted to James Marusek in How many calories?   
    After RNY surgery, weight loss is achieved by volume control. Your diet is restricted to certain types of foods and your volume of food per meal is miniscule.
    The three most important elements after surgery is to meet your daily Protein, Fluid and Vitamin requirements. food is secondary because your body is converting your stored fat into the energy that drives your body. Thus you lose weight.
    So generally we do not track calories. Following the program guidelines is important if you want to achieve the weight loss.
