    New discovery - ribs!

  4. Time to do your spring cleaning? Saw this today and thought, "Hunh!!" Don't click the link to it, cuz the tip isn't there. Am going to find it and post it here but loved the idea of performing this quick daily task!! Dangit, I couldn't get her video to load. But I found this one on the YouTube that makes great sense. I kinda like this guy!
  5. Thank you for your honesty. I'm so glad you are working on your head stuff and learning to love yourself!!! I hope we can all be this transparent with ourselves and others--then maybe so many would not feel alone!

    Six months post-op+ : The Sophomores Thread

    Oh great job on mitigating damage in advance!!!! Wooot!!! And great point about this being a party party weekend with mas food and mas beverages! *gasping at the thought* So I'm fasting this week in preparation for the weekend! And each day we have a party: Fri-Mon. *sigh* So my game plan is to make the healthiest choices in each of those party situations, heavily rely on ice tea rather than adult bevs, and keep the snacking to a bare minimum. I will eat sparingly around each party of very lo low foods--mainly low cal veg and lean dense protein like tuna, sardines, herring, grilled chick/turkey breast. So that the overall damage for each day is contained.
  7. I'm right there with you. I think my honeymoon was over at around the 7-8month mark, BUT my hunger awoke again about 2-3months out and I was exquisitely aware that I had little resistance from day one. I knew I had a larger anatomy from the beginning. And so I started before surgery practicing all those things in the article. LOL. So I wouldn't be that one person who failed weight loss surgery. For me, RNY has been a "safety net" like a back-up measure for all the hard work I've put in to change my foods, change my portions, change WHEN, WHAT, HOW, and WHY I eat...even the WHERE I eat. I don't think I've had one free ride. And I've still had a crap ton of stalls along the way and slower weight loss. But meh...I'm so close to Goal #3 I can feel it!
  8. Dense is important. I coincidentally read two different things yesterday posted by bariatric authorities who discussed the importance of re-introducing solid foods to your new anatomy. Not only does it help with satiety but it's kinda like...if you don't use it, you lose it. And you need to have the solid food to maintain a well-working digestive system. So get those solids in. It's all about choices. Choose your hard, dear.

    Weight Gain/reset

    And never overlook the power a big old glass of cinnamon apple tea with 10g of whole psyllium husks dissolved in them. I was starving this afternoon and realized I hadn't taken my psyllium yet. So so full now.

    Bathing Suits

    I knew it! They all look like you. Question, do you wear any bottoms over them? Are you thighs and legs still fit for prime time? I would have to put on swim shorts or use a wrap...

    Super cute suits. Which ones did you keep?
  14. This is a really solid article I came across today. It feels pretty universal that by about month 7-ish, our experience with our tool starts to shift and become a bit more challenging--for a variety of reasons. And one thing I certainly noticed was the larger capacity. Yikes! It's enough to send fear down my spine. This article is by the OAC (Obesity Action Coalition) and just very very good information for all of you struggling! https://www.obesityaction.org/community/article-library/bariatric-surgery-what-to-eat-when-the-honeymoon-wears-off/?fbclid=IwAR3nOMFaPpF2bt33btVcOt2E1wg2ImQbm_xKQFyLogCMNK7A2gi2SWlmJSo Has you honeymoon period started to wain or has it ended? Can you pinpoint at what month that happened?
