    Body fat scale

    I’ve bought two so far and both seem inaccurate unfortunately. I did find a place locally after doing some digging and found a place that does bodpod for $35.

    Body fat scale

    Anyone know where I can go to get this measured properly. I’ve tried my gym and my dr office and neither have that special scale.

    The last 20lbs

    So tell me about your last 20lbs or so. I’d like to lose another 15 but it is sloooooow even though I’m still in the first year. Tips and advice are greatly appreciated.

    Food Before and After Photos

    This keeps happening to me as well. I wind up having to freeze it in the end which tastes pretty good but I just can’t get the consistency right 😒

    Glad it’s not just me! I guess we will just stick it out and hope for more losses!

    The last 20lbs

    Maybe try intermittent fasting. It worked for me initially, but then my weight just plateaued for a month after so I’m not really as strict with it anymore. I did like how I felt when I was doing it though and I always go to the gym in a fasted state.

    You will get there frustr8 just keep at it!
  9. Thanks fluffy I’m making it today!
  10. Can one of you ladies share this chia seed pudding recipe your speaking of?
  11. Thank you fluffy! I hope to be as successful as you one day 😘
  12. Right now I still get full off of 2.5oz of chicken or beef (always grilled no fat or sauce added) so if I eat veggies it’s usually between meals. An example of a “snack” would be 4 raw broccoli bite size pieces dipped I 1 T of hummus OR 1/2 a large pickle. I’ve done so well since I had my sleeve and it’s so scary bc really this is my first “stall” I’ve had. It’s like my body doesn’t want to get into the 160s at all despite eating the same foods I’ve always eaten 😒
  13. So you think the bars and shakes are causing the stall? I def don’t want to waste this precious time either I will take all advice and try it to see if it break this stall! I’m desperate 😜first meal today was eggs and turkey bacon and lunch and dinner will be protein as well. I’ll check back in a week and keep ya posted. Thanks again for your advice! I know I could be drinking more water as well I’m also going to work harder at this.
  14. Thank you fluffy for responding so quick! I consider you an expert with this so I really appreciate it. I’m a newbie and I know probably annoying some of you! I do a bar or a shake not both in one day and I really just enjoy both that’s the main reason. I could definitely switch that first meal to some eggs and turkey bacon if you think that would help. I always hit above that 60 mark for protein but I’m not gonna lie I do like my protein supplements 🤷🏻‍♀️
  15. I’m doing IF pretty much everyday I didn’t know about feast days 😬 i have premier protein shake or protein bar everyday to break the fast, and then its protein only the other 2 meals, chicken or beef 2.5 oz never more. I will have a little fruit or veggies or nuts between a meal when I’m hungry. Calories range from 550-700 depending on the day. Water can always be better but that’s always been a struggle for me.
  16. Hey guys! So I lost that initial 8lbs the first week of IF and nothing since then and it’s been 3 weeks. I keep gaining and losing the same 2lbs. I’m very happy with the way I feel while IF so I have continued despite the stalled weight loss I’m just wondering if this is normal or if it’s time to cut out more calories or add in some.
  17. I think I figured out that ticker thing!
  18. Hello!! I was just going to post about this! This will be my first time fasting as I am 9mo post op and I really don’t know how it’s going to work. I have a ton of restriction still and consume 2.5oz per meal which means I barely get in any fruits or veggies still 😬. I’m currently doing intermittent fasting 16:8 and feel great but I think protein goals and hydration will be a HUGe issue. I hope more people respond to this I’ve done some google searches and most sites said it would be almost impossible until 2 years out
  19. Hi Sheri! I’m 9mo post op and follow a low carb low fat eating plan. I posted a little more detailed post up above. I look forward to getting to know you all! HW-350 SW 318 Cw-174
  20. Hey Fluffy! So I basically break my fast everyday with a premier protein. A couple hours later I have 2.5oz of chicken and then deli meat and a cheese stick around 8:30. In between those meals I TRY to squeeze in some raw veggies or a couple bites of fresh fruit but it doesn’t always happen. As you can see my restriction is still pretty amazing. Eating times are 1pm-9pm. In the last month or so My weight loss had slowed down drastically I think partly bc I’m 9mo out now and partly bc I had been grazing. Nothing crazy but maybe an extra 150-200calories. Can I update ticker from the app?
  21. Guys!!! This intermittent fasting is pure magic! First week completed and I’m down 8lbs 😳 oh and do you know how good I feel? Still can’t reach protein goals when I push it past the 16hrs but I would love to eventually get to that point.
  22. Thank you fluffy! I hope to be as successful as you guys over here.
  23. Liquid stevia or Splenda. I also use mio in my water. I will check out those links, thank you!
  24. Hello everyone! I’m trying out intermittent fasting to get past no/slow weight loss I’ve come into now that I’m close to 9mo post op and weigh much less. Sooooo I hope you don’t mind it if I join you guys here and ask questions! While fasting what do you use to sweeten coffee and tea? Also, how bad is a splash of fair life milk in the coffee? I want to get all the benefits of fasting that I’ve read about so if need be I will just stick to water if those things will indeed get in the way.

    I’m 5 months out and still consuming 2oz of food at a time so basically I never have enough room for veggies ☹️. I do eat 5-6 times a day instead of the normal 3 times. Just curious what others are consuming at this point. Dietician would like my calories to be higher but said it wouldn’t effect my weight loss if I couldn’t.
