  2. As long as youre in a calorie deficit, youll still lose weight! Carbs or not. Now im not saying you should make that a habit, but everything in moderation!!
  3. This made me actually "lol" thank you!!!!! 😂😂😂😂😂
  4. Coming up on 2 years post op and life has never been better. The gastric sleeve opened up a world to me that i thought would never exist. Ive learned so much about health, nutrition and exercise, that i wouldnt have if i didnt take the first step with the sleeve. I have a healthy relationship with foods now. I try to keep myself to the 80/20 rule. But i probably am closer to 90/10. Make good choices 80% of the time, and enjoy some of my favorite things the other times. Its funny tho, a lot of my favorites have no become healthy choices. So that makes life easier. I started this journey first just focusing on losing the weight. So for the first year i ran a lot and set a goal to run a half marathon. i completed that last may and then began to switch my focus to putting on muscle. This was hard because it meant i had to up my calories which for anyone in our situation, is a scary thing. So i bought a WHOOP strap and really dialed in how many calories i was burning and spoke with my nutritionist about a plan to get where i wanted to go. (whoop strap is apparently the most accurate fitness tracker out right now and ive found that my apple watch says i burn 800 more calories then the whoop says. just a heads up. IT wasnt easy but ive been doing it and got on a great routine. My lowest weight was 208. i now hover between 225-230. i weigh every few weeks but dont get too obsessed with the scale anymore. i know that if i stay within my calories that im fine. Its been a process and i had to learn a lot. it wasnt all easy but 110% worth it. This surgery opened a whole new life for me. I am extremely greatful.

    Hello all! We had a wedding last weekend. First time dressing up in a while.
  9. Youre doing amazing! This stall sucks and mine lasted just as long. Keep sticking to the plan. Itll drop. Youve done nothing wrong. The head games are rough, but if youre sticking to your plan, then youre fine. Just keep going.
  10. once i was cleared i got after it pretty hard. just make sure to get your protein, water and vitamins in.
  11. im off all meds i was on before surgery. and it took about a month for my doc to get me off everything
