    Going For It Again in 2010

    First day went GREAT -- as of this morning, down 2.5 pounds! :thumbdown: I wasn't able to exercise as I didn't feel well last night but I didn't beat myself up over it too bad since I had such a great day with caloric intake. I took in about 1100 calories and had maybe 2 servings of carbs. All in all -- I consider it a great re-start. Today has also been awesome; Bfast: 1 egg, shredded cheese, 1 sausage patty Lunch: 2 oz tuna, 1 tsp mayo, 4 fat-free crackers Snack: small Starbucks frap (ok! ok! IT was SMALL, though :thumbdown:) Dinner: Chili made w/venison, shredded cheese, 1 tbsp sour cream. I haven't totaled the day yet but before the afternoon snack, I had only taken in around 450 calories. Plus, I have had 6 glasses of Water today. Still no exercise but my brother-in-law's father died and we had obligations with that. Tomorrow, for sure, though. :thumbdown:

    Going For It Again in 2010

    I know most everyone has abandoned the thread at this point (Hi Joe! me, too! :frown:) but the stories sound so much like my own. I have got to get back on the wagon. I gained 10 pounds over the holidays and the only problem is, I am scheduled for a panniculectomy with tummy tuck and breast reduction on 03/24/2010. I had really wanted to lose another 10 pounds before the surgery so that leaves me wanting to shed 20 pounds in approximately 5 weeks 1 day. I don't know that it is possible but I have got to do my best -- just because I want to be at the best possible place for the best results. I was originally scheduled to have surgery in January but I rescheduled because of the weight gain. However, I do think some of my problems may be related to an inability to see change as well as inhibiting optimal exercise capacity due to my large pannus so I have decided to go ahead with surgery as long as I maintain my current weight. Hopefully with a little accountability, though, I will at least lose the 10 I gained before then. I do exercise regularly but I want to ramp that up to 5 days a week for 1-2 hours and, of course, go back to low-carb eating. I don't necessarily think that low carb is for everyone but I know it is a necessity for me. It is the only way I have ever lost weight, band or not. My body just clings to carbs :wink2: which, of course, I love. So, anyway, here is to my 1st day (again) of holding myself accountable for my actions -- eating like I should, exercising like crazy and understanding that I may fall along the way but I will just pick myself up and keep going. It is indeed a journey. I would love to have some company, so if you are reading, please feel free to join in.... company or not, though, I WILL do this! :biggrin:

    alabama meet and greet!

    I also know of someone who happens to be printing some shirts for me this week. She also gives me a discount because we are part of the same homeschooling group. The order she is doing for me now is small but this is what she told me for future orders: to give you an idea for future printing orders, we could do a one color design w/ shirts included for about $7 if you have an order of 50 shirts (give or take) Just FYI and to give you a point of reference when getting other estimates.

    alabama meet and greet!

    Jason, Don't be sorry! You certainly can't control the weather (can u?? ) You have been so sweet to organize this and plan it without looking for reimbursement but I hope you will let kaninag see about getting your money back or at least a "rain check". lol Anyway, I just wanted to say what a great guy you are and we will all definitely have to get together soon! I will have to admit, with 6 in my family, my pocketbook is definitely heaving a big sigh of relief right now! Have a great weekend everyone!!

    NYC PS Recommendations?

    Absolutely no question, without a doubt, Dr. Schulman. If you check out his thread under Cosmetic and Reconstructive Surgery, "Ask Dr. Schulman", you'll find answers to the questions you have asked as well as a pretty good idea of who he is. I am in Alabama and there is no way I could afford to go that far for surgery -- believe me, I have considered it. Anyway, not only do I believe him to be compassionate but also very knowledgeable and I believe he would do an excellent job. Just my 2-cents... HTH!

    Need new clothes?

    I have been cleaning out closets and found quite a few things I thought I would pass on. However, trying to find the clothing x-change on here took the better part of 30 minutes (boy they hid it good!) so I thought I would post a link. http://www.lapbandtalk.com/groups/clothing-x-change.html I will be glad to tell you more about any of the items I have listed that you might be interested in but please be considerate of my time and if you aren't really interested, don't ask for pics, measurements, etc. I am glad to provide them, though, if you need or want them. I am only asking for prepaid shipping through PayPal. I have appreciated the gift of clothing through others on here and hope I can do the same. Have a great day! Missy

    Calories? To many to few?

    Starvation mode is very real and sounds like to me that you are in it. I have found that bouncing back and forth from 900-1200 seems to work well for me; what I mean by that is alternating highs and lows of those numbers from day to day which keeps your body from becoming accustomed to the same amount of caloric intake. Also, your muscles will also do the same thing when it comes to exercise so if you are doing the same thing 5 days a week, you may be spinning your wheels. If you haven't already, incorporate at least a small amount of weights so that you are burning fat even when you aren't working out and I think you'll see a substantial improvement. You might even drop back to 4 days a week until you are able to improve on your caloric intake; 300 calories is okay on a very limited basis but certainly not something I would strive for regularly. Which, if you are doing that because of the band, you may be too tight and need to have some fill taken out. It is definitely worth talking to your MD about. Keep up the good work -- you're definitely on the right track!!

    Group- 5 day Pouch Test

    I find that when I do follow it faithfully it also gives me a feeling of empowerment because, it is VERY HARD to self-impose a liquid diet when you know it is not required. To accomplish this on your own is extremely difficult and something you should take pride in because it shows a step of overcoming the behaviors that caused you to be overweight to start with. Keep up the good work, ladies!!
