    Goal 155 Current 170 Today's date 11/9/2017
  2. I had to do the 6 month diet before surgery. I went from 41.8 bmi to 36. I was worried, but my surgeon also said they submit the weight from the first preop appointment. If I was going to be close to dropping below 35 I was going to out some fishing weights in my pockets at the last weight in [emoji23]. The big benefit of losing the preop weight, and starting at a lower bmi is that it's much easier to get down to your goal weight. I'll be three months post op on November 10th, and I'm only 19lbs from my goal weight.

    Sugar Free Crystal Light

    I also buy the larger packets that make a 2qt container. I usually keep two flavors in my fridge.

    Sugar Free Crystal Light

    Yes, if you check the nutrition label you will see no sugar, and zero carbs.
  5. Same here! Just hit 28 bmi!

    Why can't I see my progress :(?

    I'm 66lbs down. I'm down from a 2x shirt to a medium/large,and 38 jeans to 32/34. When I look in the mirror I don't see any difference. Our minds are strange things.

    Obesity and malnutrition

    No, I haven't seen the Hyprlipid blog, but will for sure check it out. Gary Taubes and Peter Attis are great! There is so much pseudoscience in the weight loss world, but they cover the actual science. They also do it an easy to understand way.

    Obesity and malnutrition

    Obesity is a disease of malnutrition. Read the book "why we get fat and what to do about it" by Gary Taubes. This isn't a modern problem. The problem in its simplest form is some of us can not process carbs likely others. We eat carbs, our body produces large amount of insulin to process those carbs, the insulin causes us to produce large amount of LPL enzyme, and that causes use to store fat. It because a nasty cycle for us.

    How do you calculate ideal weight?

    Not sure what chart you are going by. You could be up to 164 and be in the normal bmi range, but ideal weight I don't think is that simple. If I were to get down to normal bmi range I'd look like I was starving.

    Full Fat Mayo, cottage cheese, and yogurt

    Read the book "Why we get fat and what to do about it." By Gary Taubes Fat is good, and the low fat craze was based on bad information. Fat does not make you fat. Carbs( sugar) make you fat.

    What Post-Sleeve Rules Do You Break?

    Last round of ribs I made ( pre sleeve), home made dry rub, smoke 4 hours, 1 hour in foil, and 1 hour back on smoke then sauced. Only downside I've found now with sugarfree sauce is it doesn't caramelize like my old sauce in the pics.

    What Post-Sleeve Rules Do You Break?

    Here's the last pulled pork I made. Apple wood smoked for 14 hours at 225 degrees, removed at 203 internal temp. I even found some really good sugar free low carbs BBQ.

    What Post-Sleeve Rules Do You Break?

    Nothing wrong with an electric smoker. I have a masterbuilt 40" I love! Use it all the time for pulled pork, rib, etc. the 30" is nice, but can't fit whole packer brisket or ribs as easily.

    You can not stretch your sleeve. It's a myth.

    Sneezing followng eating?

    The sneezing and runny nose while eating and especially when getting full is very common post a bariatric surgery. It's caused by stimulation of the vagus nerve.

    Chicago Sleevers

    My wife and I would be interested. We are in Aurora, and both were sleeved. 3 and 2 months ago respectively.
  19. Enjoy Disney! December with all the holiday decorations there are lots of photo ops. There is a great one in the animal kingdom lodge lobby in front of the tree.

    I'm 8 weeks, and had popcorn without a problem. I love this stuff. It tastes like movie popcorn. The whole bag ( single serving) is 100 calories, and 13 grams of carbs. I can't finish a whole bag.

    Coffee anyone???

    I'm 2 months post op, and just started drinking coffee again. I've had no problems with it.

    What Post-Sleeve Rules Do You Break?

    Caffeine! I'm an airline pilot, and there is no way I can fly a red eye without coffee. I try to limit it, but still have at least one cup.

    Breakfast of champions

    My wife is also very busy. She's in her 3rd year of her BSN program. These shakes are our go to when we don't have time for a meal. Safety is my first priority!
  25. I'm an airline pilot, and we have to get an FAA physical every 6 months . If you don't pass your career is over. I hit 40 BMI, and was just barely pre-diabetic. My FAA medical examiner ( who also had VSG done about 2 years ago) gave me "the talk". He said if I kept going I wasn't going to pass my flight physicals much longer, and my career would be over. That was the kick in the butt I needed.
