    I wanna know about carbs... Seriously!

    I am over a year out and in maintenance. I do about 100g of Protein a day. While I was losing I kept my carbs under 50g now I keep them under 100g, anywhere from 50 to 80 usually . I've added healthy carbs in only, fruit , veggies , and Peanut Butter. Sent from my iPhone using the BariatricPal App
  4. Happy hour fridays , dinner and drinks out Saturday and company over on Sunday with wine and Snacks, BBQ s , parties, etc.. that was pretty much my life over a year ago. My life for the past year: I joined a gym , I take all sorts of different classes, when I'm not at the gym I will walk and walk and walk. My house is always spotless and when I'm not cleaning, I'm reading or coloring in my adult coloring books. I also enjoy walking around the malls , trying on tons of new clothes. It's not easy, I still think about smoking every day, not so much food anymore, and although I am in touch with my old "party friends " I now hang out with my fit and healthy friends.

    Running

    Now that I am at goal, I want to challenge myself more. I work out every day. 3 days a week I weight lift, everyday walk, bike or elliptical. I also do yoga and Zumba at least once a week. I would like to start running or at least jogging. I've always been scared and paranoid that my knees will give out and I'll fall. I haven't ran since I was a teenager in gym class, I'm now 53. Any suggestions on how to start and get over my paranoia of falling? I really would like to eventually run in a marathon at least once in my lifetime. Sent from my iPhone using the BariatricPal App

  9. I love to cook! And cook a lot for many people, and it doesn't bother me at all. For example I'll cook a tray of breaded Italian chicken cutlets with mashed potatoes and veg and salad. I bake one cutlet with no breadcrumbs for myself with the veggies. I'll also make my own Pasta and not eat a bite, I'll have a meatball with side salad instead. Idk why but I love cooking now and the more the better, I think it's because it keeps me busy and makes everyone happy Sent from my iPhone using the BariatricPal App

  15. CW 148 GW 140 I just started running so I've been using the couch to 5k app. I'd like to run in a 5k by June . I also need to up my Water, I struggled with water from day one over a year ago, I'd like to get over the 64 oz a day, especially on my 2 hour workout days Other then that, I pretty much still stick to my dr guidelines of Protein first and keep my carb intake low.

    How much lettuce?

    One romaine leaf. I fill it with a couple of slices of turkey or tuna, that's my lunch. I always make a salad with dinner but can only eat a few bites after my Protein. I'm over a year post op. Sent from my iPhone using the BariatricPal App

    Did you not like your food?

    Fortunately I've never been asked that question and I'm over a year out. But I think I would say, "I loved it! But I'm just so full". It's the truth Sent from my iPhone using the BariatricPal App

    Very minor annoyance

    Leggings saved my budget during the weight loss. Clearance racks and thrift stores. Also old navy when they have their $12 jeans sale. Sent from my iPhone using the BariatricPal App
  24. I love shopping too! It felt wonderful to get rid of all those big clothes and to be able to fill my closet with cute clothes that I wished I could've fit in for 30+ years. Trying on clothes now is a hobby of mine. I've never tried on anything in the past because I hated to look in the mirror at myself. Now I love it and can spend hours going from store to store and trying on such cute stuff! Sent from my iPhone using the BariatricPal App I love shopping too!
