    I like how you put the vest over a thin, long sleeve turtle neck. See, I would not have bought the vest because of my awful bat wings 😔 Now seeing it like this I would definitely buy it.

    Welcome to the group 😊. It's exciting to even start the process knowing help is on the way. The time will fly by and before you know it YOUR day will be here!

    I'm willing to try anything that will help. The pain has lessened with the weight loss but is still there. I will take your advice and start stretching as well. Thanks!

    True. And I do have problems walking barefoot... plantar fasciitis 😔

    Are they comfortable? I'm always looking for a good pair of comfortable shoes.
  8. I had no pre-op diet other than the day before. Just like Rick mentioned, my doctor wanted me to be as strong as possible going into this and I think this approach helped greatly with my recovery.

    Oh, Just Another Plastics Story

    You look so good! It's so neat to see you girls go through this and be so happy with the results.

    I'm guilty of doing the same thing with what I call "luxury" or hard to replace items. I always have to remind myself that it's better to have love and lost than to never have loved at all. They're not giving you joy if they're stuffed in your drawer. So enjoy them now or somebody else will when your gone. Then hand wash with Woolite 😉

    Protein Bar?

    Yesss! Quest heros are the best tasting!
  12. First time visiting the beautiful California Dutch town of Solvang. The food there is amazing! Tried an ebelskiver for the first time and they’re delicious so I bought a cast iron ebelskiver pan that will be great for various egg recipes.

    Hunger wth?

    I was really hungry while on the clear and full liquid stage after surgery but once I moved on to solid food I lost a lot of that hunger. Now, sometimes, I have to force myself to eat. It will get better 🤗

    April 2019 Surgeries!

    You guys can do it! The holidays are over. Now is the time to recommit yourself and get the scale moving again. What has helped me is eating my protein first and stopping right when I start to feel full. I'm a pretty fast eater and I don't take my time to eat just so I can eat the whole portion. Listen to your stomach not your mind when you want another bite. I don't count right now either I just try to keep track of my protein. P.S. Welcome Miss Liss 😊

    Daily Exercise Amount?

    I wish I had half the energy some of you guys have! I watch my two grandsons ages 3 and 1 five days a week. After that I enjoy long sits on the couch instead of long bike rides or hikes 🤣 You guys are doing great!

    April 2019 Surgeries!

    Doing great since surgery. I could be doing better to reach my protein goals but make up for it with a shake. It's amazing how little I can eat still. I can just now finish an egg and haven't yet finished a chobani yogurt. I have about 18 more pounds to loose to reach my goal weight and may have to add in more snacks after that to stay in maintenance. I'm not counting calories just trying to reach my protein goals right now. Hope all my April 2019 brothers and sisters are doing good! We're almost to our one year anniversary!

    Could i smoke after 1 month ?

    Try exercising instead, to reduce your anxiety. It is the most underutilized antidepressant and helps calm bouts of anxiety.
  24. Fill it up to the top as much as you can before blending and you won't have the foam.
