    Hey everyone, After losing 286 lbs. I am getting ready for my first skin removal surgery in 43 days. With the busy holiday season I know the time will fly by. I still can’t believe I am at this place in under two years. SW 487. CW 201
    I am having arms and thighs done first. Any advice would be welcomed. Has anyone done that? What was recovery like? I am an impatient patient and tend to push and expect allot of myself. But I need to be realistic. Just how incapacitated will I be having all 4 limbs cut on at once? I can handle pain, I just don’t do helplessness very well. So I need realism and tips please.

    Almond flour works as a great sub for the sesame flour. Or any kind of defatted nut flour--even pecan flour! Hope you like it.

    Cleaned out my whole closet and drawers this weekend. Tried on some capris I wore a week before surgery at Universal...they were so big on me. Def made me see the results even more that way. I wasn’t sad getting rid of my big clothes.
    Someone saw me today in Target who hasnt seen me in a while and asked if I was “ok” bc of the weight diff. Once she found out I was ok she said I looked great. Think it’s just that I look very diff. I don’t feel like I look sickly at all But guess when you see yourself in the mirror day after day it’s hard to see all the changes someone who doesn’t see you all the time sees.

    Y’all know how they preach that weight loss won’t solve all your problems?? Well it’s solving mine. My confidence has grown, I’m happier, I’m doing better financially, I’m making better decisions. I’m actually in college and my ambition is driving me where as before I would freak out and not be able to handle it. Weight loss is the best thing that has ever happened to me. I’m down 75.4 lbs, I’ll be 6 months post op on the 21st.

    I like to lament my reduced restriction but the fact is I eat sliders, healthy and on plan yes but slippery no less.
    For when i think I have no restriction, restriction has me.
    Fauxkes (Latkes like Cauliflower pancakes), spinach, hummus, Ryevita crispbread, bell pepper

    My girls are REALLY sad. They are loose and jiggly like little Jell-O shots. I was a 38 full D. Now I’m a 36 in between a B and. C. C is too big and the B is a little too small. At my ideal body weight I was a B. I’m fine with being that size but geez they look like deflated balloons. Def will need a lift and implants. But I’m not doing anything until I reach my goal weight...and from that day forward until a year. Keep it off for a solid year and I’ll treat myself to some new girls and a Tummy Tuck. 🎉

    Yes, when I say I "snack", it is a cup of yogurt or cottage cheese to get my Protein in for the day. I would consider, in my terminology, a Protein Shake in between meals a snack. I eat my Breakfast at 6:30, have a "snack" (<100 cals) at 9:30, eat lunch about 1:00, have another "snack" at 4:00 and eat dinner at 7-7:30 after the gym. This is the only way i could ever get in enough calories or protein. having said that, I agree with the point that we are all different. I also plan out every crumb of food that goes into my body the night before, so I know exactly how much I am eating, etc.

    My meal plan includes the options for two Snacks a day. I am told not to go more than 5 hours without eating. I often do the morning snack because I find I get hungry after the gym and mid-morning is when I'm supposed to take my Vitamins. But today's was 1/2 cup of applesauce - it's one of my ways to get in fruits/veggies. Sometimes, it's a string cheese or tablespoon of Peanut Butter for the Protein. I don't believe there is one way as we are all unique. At any rate, I'm sticking with what my team tells me to do.
