I voted none at all, just eat till I'm full. But I'm choosing wisely, lots of fruit and vegetables, pretty low fat (but I do eat the good fats), trying to get in lots of fibre and still enough Protein, etc etc. So I'm not eating any rubbish which means it's pretty low cal. I've done the calorie counting thing so many times in my life I can keep a pretty accurate mental scorecard and it's came in around 1000-1200 for the first couple of weeks, is edging up to 1500ish now, I think I will be having a fill next week.

:eek: This is my first week on regular food and I am trying to eat low fat and low sugar. I am eating my Protein first followed by my vegetables and carbs. It is so nice to be back on regular food.

I've found, post-op, that I can eat just about anything in moderation. The simple act of eating about 1/3 of my pre-op intake is enough to have me losing an average of 1.5 lbs per week. Today I officially hit the 20lbs loss mark! - I guess I should update my ticker....

      To working out faithfully for 5 days a week. Lets go back to that year with a more positive mind, 
      It's Saturday!!! My fiance and I are out doing yard work and I made the mistake of not staying hydrated before going out so now my body is shaking and weak. I have my pre-op appointment Tuesday, the 2nd and I am trying my hardest to lose another 2 lbs by then.
