    Kudos on a gracious reply, Bruce. I was around a 32 BMI at time of surgery w high BP, high cholesterol & increasingly high blood sugar (which all resolved within a month or two).
    I do want to come back to this thread and warn you all about an issue I had as a "telling no one - low BMI" patient though. (Just can't do it right now because I can't type very well on my phone!)
    Best to all.

    Bruce Peter reacted to LipstickLady in 1,000 calories a day & not losing   
    What are those 1000 calories comprised of? Are you eating your Proteins first, complex carbs second?

    Have you tried going to a strict post op diet for a week or so? liquid Protein only for a few days and then gradually reintroducing solid Protein to "reset" your restriction?

    Threw mine out a while ago. I eat Protein Bars instead. They taste a lot better and have more protein!

    Bruce Peter got a reaction from cockapoomom in 4 weeks out, tried some regular food   
    I have been on the mushy stage for about 2 weeks so today I tried some regular food. Here's what I had and how it went:
    ~1-1.5 oz roasted chicken
    2 maybe three green beens
    a very small portion of green salad
    about 4 small slices of roasted potato
    A couple hours earlier I had about a cup of guacamole, no chips
    It went quite well, but I was not able to eat much all, which is fine. I mean that's the point, right? I had no issues with anything. I didn't eat till I was full, I ate until I was satisfied. I get a very slight pressure sensation in my esophogus when I've had enough. I pay attention to it and stop.
    Just wanted to share this with you all, especially those who are new. There is life on the other side of the liquid/mushy stages. Stick with to and you'll get there

    Cheers

    Bruce Peter reacted to LSF in TWO month stall!   
    I read an article in a magazine that pretty much said what you do. It said for dieters eating Protein, veggies and fruit w/low carb, sometimes your body needs a "cheat day" to jump start your system again. You just need to make sure you get back on track

    Bruce Peter reacted to unsupersizeme in TWO month stall!   
    When I'm in a stall I always UP my calories, eat what I want for two days and I break through them every time. I eat extremely low carb, so adding carbs is what I mean when I say way what you want.

    I am seven months post op and at goal. We had baked chicken last night and I can still only eat two ounces. Which I think is a good thing. However..... I was at goal 9 pounds ago. I am trying to figure out how to eat enough to stop losing without over eating or eating the wrong things.

    I was able to move into soft foods as well in weeks 4 to 6. Although when I have a lean Protein like chicken I try to eat 3 to 4 ounces. Depending on what else I'm having with it. I'm not able to eat salads until the next phase only soft veggies

    Wait what? That's not really a stall. Stalls last for prolonged periods of time. A week is not that bad. Perhaps it would be best to step away from the scale a bit.

    Bruce Peter reacted to Mike4132 in Goodbye 38's, hello 36's!   
    I moved into size 36 jeans today after a brief 2 week stint in 38's! I'Ve been in tight 42-44's for the last 8 years so this is the best feeling in the world. The fact that it happened in the middle of a 2 week weight stall is even better.
    I can't describe how much this changes my "head" in making me realize I am really going to be successful with this surgery. After so many failed diets and weight loss trials over the years I guess I just got programmed to expect eventual failure. This sleeve is changing my body as well as my head and I'm beginning to feel like I now have a tool that is more effective than anything else out there.
    Looking forward to 34's. Think I'll Celebrate by going to the gym!

    Bruce Peter got a reaction from sallyomalley67 in Artificial sugar vs real sugar   
    I have no opinion on Taurus lades unscientific studies except to say that they are not scientific. That said, if anyone thinks things like margarine substitute, one molecule away from plastic or artificial sweeteners are better for you than butter or sugar, you're sadly mistaken. Studies have shown what Taurus lady has stated. I avoid them like the plague.
