    The Maintenance Thread

    Sounds like you had a great vacation @ms.sss. It will be interesting to learn what your BMR ends up being. Curious to know if it's in the low 2K like mine. "did sample many things .... but only bites, not full portions. My restriction took care of that. Also thanks to my restriction, I learned after the first day that I need to pick and choose what I want to sample, because I literally have no room to try everything ...So I only tried the stuff I really wanted to, and if after sampling it, it was only OK tasting, I'd put it aside. Only really yummy stuff got a second or third bite. It's sobering to realize that a lot of stuff really only looks good, and just tastes meh." This is me as well "I was basically a bottomless pit for skinny mojitos and tequila shots. beer, wine and vodka soda" Also me 😂

    im not going POO!

    You really don't need to do this. There is a whole range of normal bm frequency. If you are eating very little food, and even less fiber, then you just don't have a lot in you to need to go everyday https://www.health.com/digestive-health/how-often-should-you-poop

    Chiming in @Deedee12 ... the gym will still be there, after you heal. Give your body a chance to recover first
  7. I definitely count my airport walking as exercise ... can walk miles without even intending too 😂

    I was intolerant of whey protein post surgery. Anything with any significant amount of whey made me miserably nauseous. Thankfully it resolved itself. It's a pretty narrow range of supplements that don't include whey. And once you exclude pea too (agree w @mousecat88, 🤮), it gets even tougher.
  9. Thank you Michael (for the record I'm not old either )

    Food Before and After Photos

    Another day, another smoked sausage thingamajig. How consistent, then inconsistent my restriction can be sometimes surprises me.

    You should see the potholder I tried to crochet once. I don't think I can be trusted with actual clothes I want to wear outside the house. Can you just move next door instead? 😊

    Weight-loss funnies

    This is me ... not sure whether to laugh or cry 🤣 😢

    No issues with nuts for me

    No, and I have to have a lot of my clothes altered, because I'm short I use my dry cleaner for the simple stuff, not too pricey, but it adds up. For anything that is more complicated than hemming I take it to an actual tailor, and that is expensive!
  17. In my opinion, and in my experience, it is better to have some explanation for time off, rapid weight loss, changed eating etc., whether it be the truth or a lie, then by using some form of "none of your business" Even in a work environment, you form relationships on various levels. Shutting people out doesn't engender positive feelings or trust. Take for example, my president saw my rapid weight loss, eating very small portions & not drinking. He asked me if I was ok, and what was going on. I could have told him some for of, "I don't want to talk about it". Realistically though, I may keep my privacy, but make him feel as though I don't find him trustworthy, and make him continue to worry about my health, and my ability to continue to do my job. None of those things are good for my career. Was he asking solely because he cares about me, of course not. But he has the right to be concerned about if my health was impacting my ability to be effective short or long term. My point is, here is often a difference between what someone is obligated to do, and what is the best option.

    There is a wide range of normal regularity. 2-3 times a day is at one extreme, and every 4 or so days is at the other.

    What am I doing wrong

    The only thing you're doing wrong is being impatient It will come off, just not always where you want it to come from
  21. There are lots of things that aren't legally required, but are expected as social norms. It's not realistic to stonewall everyone in your life and expect to have continued positive relationships with them. People are generally asking questions because they care on some level.

    I was actually going to say those are very booty flattering!

    Most 20's-40's would kill for that body. You look fantastic!

    Six months post-op+ : The Sophomores Thread

    Not to be an IF pusher, but for me IF is easier and much more sustainable than something like keto What I like about IF Flexibility- I can stop and start whenever I want. I can do 20:4, 18:6, 16:8, or just not IF at all. I can’t really ‘fail’ at it. If I’m too hungry, I eat, no big deal Ease - it’s the one diet that gets easier as time goes on, IME. My body gets trained to not be hungry in the morning. If I do feel hungry, pushing liquids usually makes it go away. If it doesn’t, I just eat & don’t worry about IF that day. But the longer I IF the easier it becomes

    That seems ..... different In my countless hours of researching post bariatric plastics, it seems side boob is handle either with a breast lift (with or without augmentation) or with an upper body lift
