    People are strange, aren't they? But I guess it's good they aren't barking at us when we're fat, but they should keep their mouths shut when we've lost weight as well. Rule of thumb: never talk about someone's weight, good or bad.

    GradyCat got a reaction from GreenTealael in A clothing swap forum?   
    It's a thought, but of course there'd be shipping costs involved because we're all over the place, even if the clothing was offered for free.

    Sorry you're going through this. food should be enjoyable. There are still some foods I can't eat, but I can eat more foods than not.

    No, I haven't done most of those. I won't take NSAIDS because I fear they'll hurt my stomach. I know better than to drink with my meals. I've had no trouble getting in my daily Protein. I've never skipped a Vitamin. I do eat out though, but I make healthy choices and order healthy food options.

    Definitely eat before you go and bring your own Protein snack or something in your purse or pocket to snack on if you get hungry during the party. Drink Water or diet coke.

    GradyCat got a reaction from gwoodgm in I'm so excited about... Protien powder???   
    I'm glad you're so excited. That's good for your future self. I stick with the pre-mades and generally GNC Lean shake in chocolate. My husband likes to try the flavors, banana and strawberry, but I stick with the basics.

    That doesn't sound like good advice from your surgeon. If you have Depression or Anxiety, WLS isn't going to change that and you'll still need your medication. Yes, I still take mine. I have to. And my psychiatrist explained that they'll still absorb just fine and be effective and aren't affected by the WLS.

    GradyCat got a reaction from foodie669 in Did your surgeon want you to lose weight before you got surgery   
    No, my BMI was barely 40 and I weighed 235 pounds, so there was no suggestion of losing weight before surgery.

    I wish I'd known about stalls. I wasn't expecting them and they're depressing but normal.

    And I thought I was too "old" at 53. I don't think there's any age too young or too old to get healthier and use this surgery as a tool for a better life. Good luck with your WLS journey.

    Walking is the simplest form of exercise, maybe you can get up and walk a little.

    Wonderful! Way to go! I'll eventually get into the lifting but right now am mostly doing cardio, a little resistance training, and some swimming.

    They both give me the "foamies" where you throw up/spit up mucus and your stomach rejects the food. Steak is too dense. bread is too doughy. Can't eat them.

    You're still healing, so it's bound to be off-normal.

    Good luck tomorrow! Yes, I was allowed Protein Shakes the day before the surgery. I wasn't on a liquid diet pre-op, but was on a calorie-restricted diet.

    I like using MyFitnessPal to track my daily exercise, Water intake and food intake. It's free. It tracks calories, fat, Protein, sodium, etc. It keeps me accountable.
