    kellym1220 got a reaction from billho in When you can't finish your meal   
    Last night, I was eating a taco (on a low carb fajita tortilla) and my stomach "burbled" and my dog was there in an instant, ie. before I knew I was full, I think my dog, Lola knew! LOL My son said she was like a service dog, but instead of signaling on low blood sugar, she signals when I'm full, so she can have my leftovers! LOL

    I had these last night with some salsa and YUM! The regular chips don't do much for me, but these were really food! I'm going to try and make nachos with them!

    I do. I only started after surgery, since I had to quit my 2 to 3 glasses of wine method. I also bought melatonin 3AM for when I wake up in the middle of the night. I seem to be getting better sleep (according to my apple watch!)

    I don't look at 5 pounds any more. I look at half a pound at a time !!! And I Celebrate every half a pound as a major victory - at 10 years out, I still have to remind myself where I STARTED 10 years ago. At 320 pounds. Now I am at 177. And each pound is a VICTORY !
    Celebrate each victory !!!!

    kellym1220 got a reaction from ChubRub in The best compliment....   
    Yesterday, my boss (a man) came up to me and told me that I looked amazing and "whatever you're doing, keep it up!" I did tell him I was having weight loss surgery, so I think he knows what I'm doing, but it was great to hear!

    kellym1220 got a reaction from BayougirlMrsS in Charcuterie board   
    My only problem with the charcuterie board is....I LOVE IT TOO MUCH! I snacked the whole darn day...go in the kitchen, grab a bite of cheese and a small handful of nuts. 10 minutes later, some meat and cheese and a "healthy" cracker. Next time by, a couple of grapes and some cheese (mostly brie). It was delightful! I never felt too full...but I ate WAY too much over a period of about two hours. So my advice would be, make yourself a plate and step away from the charcuterie!

    I think my dog has put on 10 pounds and I know she has become a horrible beggar! (Only with me, thank goodness!) When I get full, I need the food gone or I will continue to pick at it until I am uncomfortable...and I don't want that, ever!

    kellym1220 got a reaction from nananewbern in Surgery Canceled   
    When they cancelled my surgery (it was scheduled for July) I called and asked if there were any other options, which is how I ended up "out patient" at the Hampton Inn! (I had surgery in a surgery center, they just couldn't do it in the hospital). I was one week into my liquid diet and at first I was devastated, but then I got determined and called and spoke with the office staff and said I was willing to do it wherever he was going to be performing surgery, if he was. I also wanted to make sure that I would be scheduled immediately if anything became available. And I ate Pasta and mexican food over the weekend and on Monday , they called and said they could get me in on Thursday! A day earlier than my original surgery date. I confessed about eating and they said "Just be good until Thursday, and I was and I got it done. Good luck...2020 is a crazy year. I hope you get a surgery date soon!

    kellym1220 got a reaction from TheMoxieMama in HOW WAS YOUR THANKSGIVING/ ANY ADVANCE PLANS FOR DEALING WITH CHRISTMAS?   
    I had my mom (81 yo) visiting for Thanksgiving. It was very low key, my sister, my son, my mom and me. If it could have ended with that day. I probably would have been fine, but since she drove up from Miami and spent 5 days...well...I gained 3.3 pounds and today I finally lost weight below the 225 I was at on the Wednesday before Thanksgiving! YAY! We ate out (I tried to steer it toward seafood), we ate leftovers and TOO MUCH CHEESE! And crackers, meats and nuts...little "snacky" things. (Plus eggnog...I made mine with a vanilla Protein Shake, egg yolks and spices, but the brandy...ah. the brandy!)
    For Christmas, it will just be my son and me, and I will NOT have all of the Snacks. There will be a special meal (Prime Rib) and I have mashed cauliflower, but will be making mashed potatoes too.

    It gets better on day 3. You might want to try a different shake (unless your surgeon tells you what shake to use). I used Premier Protein shakes primarily and also had Swanson Bone Broth and Jello.
