  1. slow and steady wins the race.  don't get discouraged and just keep at it. Let your sleeve do its job and try not to stress yourself out.

    hope you are all having a great summer and enjoying what your sleeve has given you.

      Great reminder about how fast you can lose weight. The mind games we play with ourselves are the worst.

      As a tea-a-holic, I'm happy to hear this. Thanks!

  4. Breathe baby breathe

    Where does it go?

    Some of the water produced as the body consumes fat exits in the usual way, through your urine and sweat. But a 2014 study in the British Medical Journal found that most of the byproducts of fat (including all that carbon dioxide) leaves the body through the respiratory system.

    Yep, you read that right. You breathe out the byproducts of most of the fat that you burn, the CO2 from that process mingling with the CO2 produced by your lungs as they process oxygen. It's something to think about while you hit the gym or walk on a track: getting rid of fat can be exhausting, but it's as natural as breathing.

  7. I really like this guys video's.

    i would add that eating slowly and chewing fully has an effect on how full you feel.

      Agreed! Why not re-join us in the IF thread? :)

  8. First vacation since 2007

    4 days and 3 nights in Vegas and i had such a great time i can hardly believe it.

    eating was a pain but i just ignored the fact that i was paying way to much and then throwing most of it away.

    no IF those days but back on it today and feeling real good.

    I was surprised this morning that i weighed exactly the same today as the morning i left

    i was sure i would put a pound or two with how hard it was to eat clean in the casino's

    played so much poker this week, man i had a blast.  I played for 13 hours on Thursday and i could hardly get to sleep i was so hyped.

    Hope everyone has had a great week and that life is being good to you all.

      This was fascinating. Thank you for posting!

  10. Well January finally did it. Started the month and ended the month at the exact same weight.

    First time my weight journal has had a Zero written in it.

    Feb 1 is the 18 month mark and it does feel like the end of one journey and the start of another.

    Do not see the surgeon again till August but he was happy at 175 so i do not see any issues there.

    1. Orchids&Dragons

      Orchids&Dragons

      I stalled out in January as well. Maybe from less activity in the cold weather? Anyway, you've had amazing success so far. Hope all continues well with your journey, whether losing or maintaining.

      Could just be a temporary stall. If you want to lose more, change things up a bit and keep working the master plan!!! :) Congrats on your losses. That's fabulous!!!

  11. skip the add at the start.   the study is the interesting part

  13. Ok , you can all have a laugh at my expense today.

    As a kid i never cared for PB&J i would eat one if it was all that was available but i always preferred a tuna sandwich.

    The other day my daughter comes over with an All Natural Peanut Butter and as we are talking in the kitchen she opens this jar up and the smell just about knocked me over. It was amazing. So i got a spoon and tried it straight, no jellies for me anymore, I was blown away with the amazing taste. Now i don't know if this a case of taste buds changing or just good Peanut Butter but that was a great treat. So i now have a jar in my kitchen and while i only eat a spoonful of it on any given day i am still amazed at how great it tastes.

    Happy Holidays, I hope you are all doing great over this holiday period.

      I have always loved PB&J but since surgery I have been absolutely KILLING peanut butter! I keep a jar everywhere, I have some in my book bag, have some at work, I find that when I do start to get hungry that eating a spoonful keeps me going until I am able to find something. They have it at the hospital and when we get busy and I am unable to eat I will eat a small container of it and keep going until I am able to eat or drink a shake.

      Oh yeah. Laura Scudder's is what we get. Totally tastes so fresh and clean! :) And like you, I went for either tuna fish or bologna and cheese sammys. :)

      @Bhageerah good to see you round here my friend!

  14. I have been very busy lately and my arm has finally stopped hurting, still no lifting, but my weight loss started up again so i am back to trying to find the right calorie number to hold in place. Its weird to think this way now and i am having a harder time increasing my calorie intake than i thought i would. It feels wrong to tell myself to eat more. So many years of yo-yo dieting messing with me right now. The Mental game just never ends.

      Is there anything they can do to "un-pinch" it?

      stretches and never putting pressure on back of arm, like you do if you use the bicep or tricep curl machines. Surgery is a last resort but doc says i need to try everything else first.

      The loss of so much fat around the nerve bundle allowed it to move around more.

    4. Orchids&Dragons

      That stinks. Sorry. One of those d@mn unintended consequences.

  15. if you only watch part of this watch from 34 minutes to 36 minutes.

    i enjoyed it all.
