    Bras are my enemy!

    Eat slower and make sure to chew. I have the same problem. Smaller bites and slower eating help SW: 366 CW: 315 GW1: 200 RNY Dec 18, 2017!

    Guilty Pleasures - Your last meal

    I didn't have the chance really. My daughter went to the ER and then was admitted to the hospital. I did eat a lot of ice cream prior to which was nice because I don't enjoy it like I used to. SW: 366 CW: 315 GW1: 200 RNY Dec 18, 2017!

    Best type of iron

    Hello hello hello everybody I'm finishing up my bottle of BA Advanced and was thinking about trying Celebrate with iron. Stuff is pretty important. I'm still in my child bearing years and would like to start donating blood again. I noticed the iron is different in both brands. Is one type better than the other?

    Is Global Warning A Hoax!

    And here I am in geography class studying the ocean and wind patterns watching the systems change due to global warming. A lot of it is how pollution absorbs energy. Scientists literally know how and why. That's why there is no debate. SW: 366 CW: 315 GW1: 200 RNY Dec 18, 2017!

    How best to show support.

    Understand she will be moody after. Help her with chores around the house. I was still painful when I came home. Try dieting with her. It's fun and cuts temptation SW: 366 CW: 329 GW1: 200 RNY Dec 18, 2017!

    Barefoot running shoes

    Supposedly better form and such. It forces you to not strike with your heel, for example. While a shoe can soften the blow. My favorite reason is easy cleaning lol. SW: 366 CW: 329 GW1: 200 RNY Dec 18, 2017!

    Cons?

    I miss Pizza! But in all seriousness... Having to take vitamins which can be expensive. I was a blood donor before surgery so I take bariatric specific vitamins with iron in hopes to start up again. I used to only spend $15 a month on vitamins. Now it's double that. I'm tired. I used to be up early and to bed late. Although this could be because I'm not getting any younger now that I think about it lol. Gas sucks. I'm thinking the extra room in our natural stomach is for gas. I took two pills plus a vitamin daily before surgery. Now I take 5 pills and 4 vitamins a day. That takes a toll mentally. It's not forever, but hard now. SW: 366 CW: 329 GW1: 200 RNY Dec 18, 2017!

    Restrictive vs Metabolic

    Depends on the surgery. Lap band and the new balloon are restrictive. Rny, sleeve, and DS are restrictive and malabsorbing. Technically, none restrict calories. They restrict how much you can physically eat which reduces calories. Then some prevent absorption of some of those calories. So I could consume 1200 but I'm probably not getting all 1200. IF you cut calories that low and manage to not binge after and took vitamins, I guess technically you could have the same results. The problem is that it isn't practical. I've tried doing that and ended up binging every single time. From my understanding, set points can move with sustained weight loss or gain. This is why some body builders have trouble gaining.

    Not feeling full

    Idk if it matters what surgery you had but I had an rny and noticed pouch fullness feels different than stomach fullness. Not sure how to describe it though. SW: 366 CW: 329 GW1: 200 RNY Dec 18, 2017!
