    kristieshannon got a reaction from carlacv in Espresso w/premier shake Post op   
    My daily Breakfast is a Premier Protein shake mixed with a Starbucks nitro cold brew. Yummy! My team is fine with it, as long as I get in my daily amount of non caffeinated fluids. As a plus, the strong coffee every morning helps me avoid the constipation issue many of us have post op :)

    This morning I hit a new all time low BMI for me since I started gaining weight after my kids were born. My BMI is now 29.8 so I’m am now just overweight and no longer obese! I have 13.2 pounds left to get to my original goal, but think I’ll drop a further 5 from there to defend a 5 pound range. I’ve got PS scheduled in January, so right on track to reach my goal in October and then maintain a couple months prior to surgery. Feels soooooo good!!!

    On another note, the closer I get to goal, the more people notice when I’ve dropped smaller amounts. Early on I’d get a lot of comments every 20 pounds or so. Now it’s about every 5.

    Yes, sizes are noticeable more quickly too! I feel like I just got in to my size 12 jeans and most pairs I have are already saggy in the waist. I’m only going to buy a couple pairs of pants in 10 since who knows where I’ll be after my Tummy Tuck. I’ve only dreamed of hitting single digits, but it now seems totally doable :)

    kristieshannon got a reaction from Pandemonium in 6 yrs post op - weight gain - seeking support   
    Adding to the above, I agree 10 minutes is a good start! Sometimes it’s easier to fit in/do 10 minutes several times a day rather than one long walk.

    Do you think it might work to ask your husband to help you? Instead of focusing discussions on him or “we”, try “Honey I’m really worried and stressed that I’ve been slipping in my plan and have gained a few pounds. Could you help me by keeping x, y, and z out of the house or at least keep it where I can’t see it?”

    Best of luck to you, I also agree that seeking out help , asking for support, and working on a plan is an awesome first start.

    RN here. There is a wide spectrum of “normal” as far as sexuality goes. As long as you and your wife are both happy, you are fine. Things will probably taper down a bit over time when the newness wears off.

    I consider myself to be progressive and liberal. I’ve learned recently that it’s not ok just to be “not racist” in a passive way. We have to stand up for our fellow American citizens and live in an anti racist society.

    (We also need to care for everyone in poverty and provide freaking insurance to everyone.)
    I read this post on Instagram and realized how much I still have to learn and understand.

    Am I the only one who loves purging my closet? I filled 3 large garbage bags today with all my size 14 & 16 pants, all my XL tops and a good portion of my size L tops, several dresses and a bunch of shoes that are now too big. All donated to a women’s shelter. Started a new bag for my 12’s and the rest of my L tops as I move out of those in to 10’s and M’s. Feels so good!

    @ms.sss Thanks again! I ordered one of the garments. I’ve been lucky enough with my sleeve that I have no limits to my Fluid intake, I get in 100+ ounces every day and will make sure to keep it up through surgery. 13 days???! OMG that sounds miserable! I will definitely bring an Arsenal to prepare for that possibility.
