    In an effort to embrace reality and with a healthy dose of encouragement from “Shrill”, I decided I’m wearing a bikini this summer. stretch marks, scars, loose skin and all. All of these bathing suits are at Target. I bought the red one in a smaller size.
    STATS: I’m 202lbs. I’m 7 months post gastric bypass and I’ve lost 119 lbs. My goal weight is 145. Yes, I plan to have plastic surgery down the road but that won’t fix my brain so I’ve been working on that for now.
    Don’t leave me hanging -- PLEASE POST YOUR BATHING SUIT OPTIONS FOR SUMMER!

    That soundz amazing! Thank you for going over the details, especially the nutrition; super helpful. I had never considered training for a triathlon but I just might do that.

    Michael, I just started following your channel and I like what I see! I, too, am building a new life through fitness (I'm 14 months post gastric bypass) I'm currently in school to become a personal trainer and I graduate in March. I just trained my 1st client this weekend. I'd be super-interested in picking your brain about a few things if you're interested. Please pm me if that's something you might have time for. Either way, keep up the great work, power-lifting looks like a blast!

    I had a good foundation of walking already established, but had not swum or ridden a bike in decades! I only had 2 months to get ready. So I started swimming - oh my goodness! With losing weight, I also lost my buoyancy! My legs sank and I couldn't kick hard enough. With a rotater cuff injury in my right shoulder, I just resigned myself to breast stroke rather than freestyle, which was utterly exhausting. I tried to swim 2-3 times a week. The first time, I nearly drowned twice!
    I tried to ride my daughter's bike, but because of stiffness in my hips and knees, I simply cannot swing my leg over the saddle and I couldn't get it over the bar, either. Pitiful. So getting on and off was a challenge and I didn't feel safe. So I bit the bullet and bought my own bike - a hybrid with a step through frame (ie: girl's bike). It is wonderful. It is very ergonomically correct for me and very comfortable. Most of all, I can get on and off safely. I bought the brightest possible strobing tail and head lights, and attached a water bottle to the handle bars with a long straw so I didn't have to reach down with one hand for a Water bottle. I started riding - 5 miles, then 7 miles, then 10 miles, then 15 miles - at least twice a week.
    3 weeks before the event , I did all three on the same day - spread out over the day. 2 weeks before, I did all three again on the same day, but more or less back to back. On the day of the event, I did fine. I was more mentally stressed than physically stressed. I was not exhausted or overly tired at all.
    The biggest hurdle was nutrition. I had to up my calories per day, and that was pretty hard. I had to give up intermittent fasting, as I needed the Breakfast time to get more calories in. This was not comfortable and I felt like I was over eating the whole time. I could not use high carb stuff or energy drinks, as I was a afraid of dumping. The best thing I finally settled on was to drink a Protein smoothies several hours before the event (300 calories, 35 gm protein.) Then water and RX bars throughout the event. Each RX bar has 210 calories and 12 gm protein. I think I ate 3 of them and it was fine. My stomach was not overloaded and I was comfortable and had plenty of energy.
    Now I see that I have a lot of room to improve my swimming stroke, my biking technique, and also maybe experiment with race walking. (My orthopedic doctor forbids me to run on my artificial knee, in order to save it for as many years as possible.) With a baseline level of fitness now, I think I may do a couple of these triathlons a year, just for motivation and to see if I can improve my times. It was definitely a milestone for me, and actually a lot of fun.

    Wow! It sounds like you have had some real personal growth over the last several months of this journey. I'd love to see you congratulate yourself for all that hard work. ❤️ None of it is easy but the mental toughness it takes to get through is by far more difficult than the physical. You are on the right track!

    Naughty Glitter Goddess got a reaction from FluffyChix in Butt flap - Anyone have?   
    Yes, I also have this butt flap and am finding good luck reducing it with exercise. I don't mind it terribly but I'm on a muscle building track and have noticed it getting less obvious. My darling daughter "brought it to my attention" this summer by pinching it and asking me what it was🤦‍♀️😄
    A variety of squats will strengthen and tone the area but don't underestimate the power of focusing on the hamstrings as well. There are so many sites to get exercise ideas but I really like muscleandstrength.com because I'm a stickler for focusing on form!

    Ok, low carb Chinese chicken salads for meal prep. Each of these trays are 2 servings for me. I can usually eat the whole serving but sometimes I leave behind some cabbage. In the baggies are grilled chicken, toasted almonds & sesame seeds, homemade sweet sesame dressing. One of my favorites!

    Balsamic rosemary grilled chicken thighs and baked zucchini. Chicken hit me like a brick. Just getting back into eating it after a small break.
    *It may also have been due to eating a small slice of a sourdough baguette. Sorry but I have to show you these I baked using a sourdough starter we've had going for quite some time. Delicious! Worth it!



  13. Congrats!

    This is my first time eating food not prepared at home. I’m 4 ½ weeks post RNY and am eating soft foods and trying one or two new regular foods a day. This was delicious and it went down really well.

    It’s 2 street tacos: 1 barbacoa and 1 carnitas; and one side of refried Beans.

    I broke it down to a more manageable size on a small plate onto which I measured out 1 oz each (by weight) of barbacoa, carnitas and beans.
    This took me 20 minutes to eat & I have enough leftovers to last a week!

    Hey can I play? I'm just starting week 2 of purees. Thought it could be helpful to someone to see how much I'm getting in these days. I had surgery 3 weeks and 1 day ago.
    OK, the first one is an Acai bowl: greek yogurt, acai puree blended with tiny piece of banana, granola ground into dust with nutritional yeast and sprinkled on top.
    Second is refried Beans with cheese and guac. I also like this with some mild enchilada sauce on top - I can't wait to get back to spicy!
    Last group is meatless meatballs smashed together with nutritional yeast, marinara, and ricotta then topped with mozzarella cheese.

    UPDATE I'm actually wearing my suit in public. I was embarrassed the first couple of times but now, I'm good. If anyone wants to silently judge my body from afar, they can go for it. I know what it's been through and I know what it can do. That's all the confidence I need. Have an amazing summer! We ALL deserve it no matter what our bodies look like 🤗
