    TomC got a reaction from jackib579 in Protein goals and Fruit   
    HI- I had surgery a few months ago and recently joined a boot-camp exercise class. The instructor gave the class a goal of trying to eat your weight in Protein grams per day. So, currently I am around 200, which would mean I would need to aim for 200 grams of protein a day. It seems extreme. The other nutrition question I have surrounds fruit. I try to eat an apple a couple of times a week, but they are high in carbs. Is this OK or should I try a different fruit?

    Wow, I hope you get the answer you are seeking. I also hope this is not me. I too feel at times like it makes no sense that I am not breaking the stall. I am now trying to slam Water and be more mindful of what I am eating, but I don't think I am eating too much either. I think I am always below 1000 calories a day. Good luck!
  3. Congrats!

    Hi-Yes, similar. It is great because the exercises are always changing. It is awful, because you are always feeling sore in areas you did not know you had muscles in. I started tracking again, and I am down a couple of pounds! This group will help me stay accountable to myself. Thanks. I too am trying to stay around 1200-1300 calories a day.

    I would like to join this group. I was sleeved in July, but I need to be more accountable. Started logging again, down 40, but I’ve been stalled for 3 months. I notice the dial moving again down on the scale now that I am trying to keep calories to 1200 or less. I also do Bootcamp 3 times a week. Pure hell. Good luck everyone!

    I was sleeved in July and I also feel like I have been in a stall for the last 2 months. I am trying to up my Water intake, reduce my diet soda intake, and increase exercise. I know we will get through it, But it is hard. I have my 6 month check in tomorrow, and I have barely lost any weight since my 3 month. Not looking forward to it.

    TomC got a reaction from chelsey211 in What to tell coworkers?   
    I just had the procedure a few weeks ago and I am already down about 20 lbs. I tell people I have been dieting for some time, which is the truth and it is just starting to show. I also tell them I gave up bread, and that usually gives them the answer they want. Good luck.
