Lan2K,

I didn't like the greek yogurts the first time either. (then again...I hated ALL yogurts..) Now I get the plain...and mix in a teaspoon of sugar free Smuckers peach preserves or strawberry preserves. It adds enough flavor without being so sweet.

I also use the Greek yogurt in place of sour cream when making cauliflower Mash fauxtatoes. ONE frozen bag of cauliflower, cooked till it's entirely dead (no tender crisp...this has to be soft). I drain it very well, even pressing on it with a couple paper towels to get it dry. Then I mash it with a potato masher, add 1 T each of Greek yogurt, Neufchatel (low fat) cream cheese, and margarine or butter. Salt and pepper to taste... It keeps for four or five days in the fridge and is easy swallow early in the mushie stage.

It gives you the feeling that you're having comfort food. Easy to measure out too, I usually have about 2-3 tablespoons for a portion.

Sounds delicious, the cauliflower recipe. I could also try adding preserves to the plain greek yogurt. Thanks. How is your knee BTW??

Lan2K,

my knee is improving daily. Still turning down the "advice" to have an MRI but other than being able to definitely diagnose the damage...my doctor is happy enough with my progress. I don't have to use the walker anymore and I'm off the Vicodin. Swelling is down and bruising is fading. The weird skin hypersensitivity is gone so the nerves must be healing too. I walk with a noticeable limp but really doubt there are any major muscle tears...I believe it was a severe strain and sprain caused by the knee dislocating, with accompanying soft tissue damage caused by the impact of my knee hitting the ice. I'm mending..and taking it easy! Thanks for asking!

Tracy I am really really relieved for you! Now just do NOt attempt to do anything in the ice or snow! Before we know it spring will have arrived. Hang in there and take care of yourself.

      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)

        Happy Sunday! I like weird people. Normal people are boring! :) I began following you and wanted to know if there are any other members you would recommend? My surgery is 8/29/19 and I want to learn as much as possible. Have a great day and thanks so much for the website.
