What about veggies? Carrots, celery? Or I've found some pita bread and flat breads, lavash that is very low cal and high Protein.< /p>

There are soy chips. Also some crackers are not too bad calorie wise.

There's lots of options for almost any food you want to eat. Make healthy choices and remember Portion Control and you can enjoy all types of foods. That might sound like a diet but for me with the band it's not.

I got a microwave chip maker from pampered chef and it's nice to make veggie and fruit chips. I can make apple, zucchinni, sweet potato and they taste good, but aren't loaded with the fat, grease and salt like store bought are.

However, if any one gets one, you do have to play around with the time in the microwave to get it right.

That sounds like a great idea cause my problem is craving salty. This could give me a healthy alternative.

Carrots, capsicum/peppers, cucumber sticks are great. Celery I've had some trouble with stringy bits if my teeth can't shred the stringy bits

Mary's Gone Crackers - wheat free, gluten free, made from rice, seeds and flax. Rather low calorie and moderate carb, and at least nutritious - not empty process wheat calories. You can have 13 for 136 calories according to te box.

Hard to get in Australia and probably specialty store item in the US too but easily available online.

Jachut,

Thanks for the recommendation! I just discovered them here in a nearby shop called "Veggies" - quite expensive but worth the price

      Yesterday I "officially" eclipsed the 100 lb mark.  I'm sure if you're in any other country than the US, the 45.3 kg mark doesn't sound as much of a milestone, but it's very cathartic for me to post that I hit it. 
      I recently read back through both my BP status updates and my private journal and hitting this milestone makes all the things I "worried" about seem stupid, but I know they're not stupid because they were very real at the time.  Also, I think if I didn't give these fears my full attention, I may not have been as successful as I have been to date.
      I'm about 50 more pounds off my end goal and I know that will not be the end, I will continue to strive for bettering myself in both physical and emotional ways.  I have to hunker down and get this done. 
      I'm noticing if I don't exercise every day, the weight loss stalls quite a bit.  I'm not really into the 80/20 theory with diet and exercise, I think there's a genetic modifier that needs to be applied and it's different for everyone, just my opinion... don't hold it against me.

      RE: the running/training
      Honestly it started with me just doing laps around the kitchen that first post-op week.
      In a week, I graduated to walking up and down my street, then to walking around the block every day.
      The distance increased, then the speed.
      Then I started running little spurts during my walks, then to alternating 1km runs with 1km walks.
      And now I can do a continuous 10k (which I totally did for the first time this morning...so full of myself about it today, it’s disgusting.)
      Just do something everyday and slowly increase speed and duration, next thing you know you’ll be one of those odd “running people” (who I never understood pre-op, but now totally get, lol)
