Thank you! Yep I'm 38 today. Yayyy!!!

Sounds like a great plan. You say you've had two WLS. What other one have you had besides the sleeve?

I had the Lap Band done on 2/11/08 then revised to VSG on 9/15/11. :)

Do you count calories when doing the five days? I'm almost 2 months out and am in a stall. Would love to try you five day program but need to know amounts or calories to make sure I'm doing the right thing. I haven't been to my nutritionist post op so have no idea how many calories I should be consuming. Thanks in advance and wow, what an ispiration you are to many of us!!!bigear.gif

LOL Thanks Kim and Lynda! I like to call it my Birthday Month... haha :)

Elixabeth - I did in the early stages during weight loss. I would log all my food in https://www.livestrong.com/login/ It will keep track of all your calories, carbs, sodium, sugar - all that and it's free. There are many others you can use, but that just so happens to be one I chose. Not sure why, it was just easy to figure out I guess. ;) I didn't really ever set a real limit to myself, I just figured if I'm eating right the calories can't go that high. They were always around 800-1,000 for the day and really I burned 1,500 for the day on workouts alone. So you can see it wasn't anything major for me to worry too much about that.

I don't ever log my food anymore, since I'm not actively trying to lose. I do however plan to continue to use this as a way of life if I need to get off a few pounds here and there. Good luck!!! :)

Thanks for the info. I consume about 800-900 calories per day. Dont know why I'm not loosing. I lost 20 lbs week 1 post op and then went about 4 wks with hardly any Protein since the shake wasnt agreing with my sleeve and I was scared to eat other things. I think I choked my body really bad! In total if lost about 35 lbs in 2 months so not to bad I guess but it feels horrible to be newly sleeved and have a 2 week stallbanghead.gif ...I will give this a try and let you know how it goes.

Let me know Elixabeth! I'm interested to find out. :) I know it worked for me, but it's interesting to know if it works for others.

Hi SR! I'm always glad to tell others how I went about my weight loss. Thanks for the Happy Birthday! Really, I'll probably need to do this myself next week... too much birthday fun ;)

Happy Birthday (a little late). Mine is today. We December babies are doing great. I plan to use your 5 day the next time I hit a stall. I JUST got off one today. Almost a month with nothing and then 5 pounds today.
