Sorry, I keep forgetting to check in. I've been meeting goals every day this week. In fact today, I've gone way over on my exercise since I'm moving into an apartment and I will again tomorrow.

My typical day has an egg beater for Breakfast, 2 or 3 ounces of pureed meat product for lunch and dinner along with a couple of Protein shakes each day. I'm still in the pureed stage, so my diet is pretty much the same each day. Occasionally, I'll throw in a Soup instead of pureed meat - that I will usually add Protein powder to the Soup. Can't wait for next week when I get to have mushies! I'm already planning to make a meatloaf. :)

Lila,

Thanks for adding our calorie info! It helps me plan for what will work in a few more months when I can eat more. Are you using a tool to get the carbohydrates or just adding them up from the package nutritional data? I should add fat and carbs to my tracking too.

Hi Lynda, I use Fitday to track my calories, carbs, Protein. However, I've been sort of slacking on tracking lately, so I'm glad for this challenge which helps me to track better again. You also get a general sense of what's carb-heavy if you are eating similar meals. Another tool I really like is:

http://caloriecount.about.com/cc/recipe_analysis.php?process=resubmit&count=2

You enter a recipe and add the number of portions and it breaks down the calories/carbs/fats/vitamins for a serving portion. It's really handy if you make the same recipe fairly often.

Thanks for the info on fitday. I will check it out.

Today I stepped on the scale and was greeted with 184.9!!! I am officially merely overweight, not obese!! The first time since the 1990s. Thank you sleeve!! We went to the movies today and I was able to resist popcorn. It smelled good, but I was full from my Protein drink and hubby didn't want popcorn so I wasn't going to by a bag for the bite or two I might eat.

On Sunday, I feel asleep AGAIN before drinking my evening Protein Shake and taking my evening pills. No more laying down in bed to watch TV after dinner. And I have to eat dinner earlier so I have enough room to get the shake in before I am pooped. So total calories and protein for Sunday was Protein, 36 grams, Calories: 425.

August 1, Monday:Breakfast: Yogurt Smoothie (3/4 C. Fage 0 Plain Yogurt, 1/8 C. OJ, 1/4 C. Water, 2 strawberries, Splenda): 15 grams protein, 115 calories

Lunch: 1 scoop French Vanilla Gold Standard Whey Protein, 1/2 C. Starbucks Via Decaf Italian Roast, 1/2 C. plain soy milk: 27 grams protein, 155 calories

Dinner: 2 oz.ground beef mixed with 1/4 cup mixed veg.: 14 grams protein, 155 calories

Planned Late Snack: 2 oz. ham, 1/2 C. melon: 10 grams protein, 70 calories

Planned Protein, 66 grams, Planned Calories: 610, Water: On cup 6

Vitamins: Took my lunchtime Calcium today!

Exercise: Did 1/2 hour taped sit and be fit before lunch today

      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?
