Sure!! I just put that so if anyone wants to bump up the carb intake, do it the healthy way with God's intentions. ;) Oh and why I put maximum instead of minimum. You can do minimum zero so you're still on plan.

The Facebook thing is just an added outlet. You can just check in here if you prefer. The event is open to all (not hidden) so chances might be that someone can view it if you're not open to that.

I'd love for everyone to check in every day!! I will for sure. I really REALLY need this!!!

Ok, I think I need to at least try it. I opened the door to carbs (mainly crackers) and now they are barging in and slowing me down. I just ordered a blackberry and am going to dowload the livestrong food tracking app so I will have no excuses....crossing my fingers.....:blink:

Hi all,

I did good yesterday, eating as planned except for 7 grams of Pork rinds with my evening Protein shake.

I'm on track so far today with a yogurt smoothie for Breakfast and walking fast for 45 minutes this morning. Not sure about lunch and dinner yet, but I will report back tomorrow.

      I feel like I've finally gotten past the biggest hurdle. Surgery date is September 6th, the day after Labor Day, and yesterday I got my insurance approval letter. I've followed everything they've told me to do, and I've even lost 30 lbs on my own since hubby had to change his diet for diabetes. No worries now about having to do 4 weeks of the liver shrinking diet instead of 2. On my initial visit, if I had gained just 5lbs I would have had to do 4 weeks. It's getting closer. Just 2 more months to wait.

        Although the prep work took energy, I found the biggest hurdle was post-operative. The first 48 hrs were extremely uncomfortable. I did an overnight and trying to down the liquids, Tylenol, and especially the barium was rough. Thankfully though, I got away with only having to have 1 belly injection after surgery. Needless are not my thing.

      I am looking for people to connect with that are 4-5 years out. Many of the support sights I go to are all newbies. And while I enjoyed that when i first had my surgery and found it useful, I am looking to exchange ideas with folks that are out a few years. I am slowly gaining weight back and losing my excitement. I don't want that!

      How do you stay focused? I'm struggling a bit the past three days.  All I want is sweets and carbs.  I have no clue what changed but for some reason I'm craving hard.  I'm literally dreaming about food and when I wake up, I'm thinking about my next meal.  I'm not "hungry" but so munchy.  I'm trying to stay focused, busy, exercise and the likes but this looking struggle is getting to be so hard.  I meet with my nutritionist tomorrow and I'm so hopeful she has some advice.  My protein intake is great, liquids on point, even throwing in some raw veggies and berries to curb the sweet/carb craving.  Thoughts?
