Wondering if a little bit of nonfat frozen yogurt is ok to have. I know there's a place I went to that had nonfat no sugar added frozen yogurt that was outstanding. Only had about 3 oz. Anyone else out there?

I work next door to a Yogurtini and I have it sometimes. It's a great tasting treat and it's better than ice cream. Theworldaccordingtoeggface has some great Protein ice cream recipes. I just got a frozen yougurt maker so I'm going to try some of them.

Yes- I have it as a treat occationally. Maybe once or twice a month.

I try to stick to the non-fat, no sugar kinds... like watermellon sorbet. But if they have almond or postashio flavored froyo... im gonna cave and have some!

As always... I offset my "treat" with some good ole workin out the next day.

Oh, yeah, I eat frozen yogurt from Red Mango almost every day--as a meal substitute. They have nonfat yogurt (I don't worry too much about the sugar, but that's just me) and slivered almonds. It's delicious and a great way to get some Calcium and a touch of Protein in yummy form. I end up eating around 250 calories of this when I have it--small amounts, please!! Ask the counter staff for a smaller or child-size container--those regular "bowls" really encourage over eating and supersizing. You can also get your yogurt in a coffee-size cup if you ask for one; they may look at you strangely at first; the staff at Red Mango just hand me the appropriate cup when I walk in now. :-)

If it regular frozen yogurt I would have to say nay, I would be afraid it would mess up my tummy...

Have you tried Skinny Cow? Not frozen yogurt but good. Comes in a much more proportionate size.

Try mushing up some Jello, and a frozen fruit bar - kinda chunky, and you can do it with popcicles too. Put it into a freezer bag, push the air out, and let it freeze...and then dump it into a blender and pulse it for about 30 seconds...chop some ice in the blender first and let it sit, and toss that (it tempers your blender so your creation does not melt immediately - pour into an also tempered glass mug or such...it make a kinda gelatto thingy, very nice in my opinion.

Oh yes, we have a Big Spoon yogurt shop in town, go there sometimes and have a small amount like you with some of the fresh fruit choices they have...yummy!

I know that we should be eating sf stuff now, but I've been getting concerned about the artificial sweetners in them now. I'm thinking that maybe have something with a little more natural sugar might be alot better. So I am starting to look at whole foods with no additional additives. The less ingredients the better. However, I do eat yogurt, frozen, one in a while. :)

I have the TCBY frozen yogurt every once in a while. I get the nonfat no sugar added kind usually and sometimes I get the white chocolate mousse 96% fat free BUT it does have 17G of sugar for a serving so I just get one serving of it. I like to go there on 99cent waffle cone wednesdays. I just eat the yogurt and throw out the waffle cone.

I just learned how to make ice cream from only bananas. It's a great way to use overripe bananas. Peel and slice bananas into 1 inch chunks. Freeze at least a couple of hours. Toss into a food chopper and process until they turn to a soft serve consistency. You may have to stop and scrape down the sides a couple of times.

Here's a great link with pics: http://www.thekitchn.com/stepbystep-instructions-for-on-97170

Of course, I'm a year out now and have more room for foods besides just Protein.

      Went to see the Star Wars movie yesterday. (Glad I waited as no one else was in the cinema for the midday session - yes!) Hadn’t been to the cinema for a few months and OMG I suffered the most terrible butt pain.  So uncomfortable. Started after 30 mins. Was in the premium cinema so grabbed a cushion to sit on but it didn’t help. Ended up sitting sideways in the chair, stretched out on an ottoman. Soooo super glad no one else was there. Sometimes I do miss my old butt fat cushioning... but not really.

      I have a surgery date, I have my next doctor appointment on Wed and then Thursday I start my 2 week liquid pre-op diet. I am very nervous right now. I know it's going to be a tough mind game.

      Week 5 Post Op Report

      What a journey! I am 5 weeks from surgery and a total of 24.4 pounds down!

      I feel amazing! I’ve incorporated a ton of walking and I’m using my Apple Watch to help me along! I have closed all three of my fitness rings for 11 days straight! Ok, so I am in LOVE with my Apple Watch. I've had it for almost a year and I am just now tapping into it's fitness power!

      I keep on top of my protein, vitamins and biotin!

      I struggle with water but I average about 50 ounces a day. I have only had one day where I had to “purge” because something did not agree with me. Tuna and my Tiny Tummy still do not agree so I’m going to leave it alone for a while!

      I walk on average a little more than 3 miles a day for my exercise but manage to get in at least 13,000-17,000 steps a day depending on how my schedule goes.

      I get up every hour and walk around for at least five minutes. Then if I’m watching a show I get up and walk in place during the commercials!

      I meet with my doc this week for a progress report.

      I have one more week before I graduate from soft foods to the final phase!

      I’ve got my cookbooks ready, my food scale ready and my measuring plates ready!

      I could NOT be more happy with my progress! I feel amazing and I’m grateful to have this tool!

      None Scale Victory: My rings on my finger are spinning!

        Sabrina, you are doing so well. I'm truly inspired and equally excited for you. The view you shared is breathtaking and relaxing, I'm in love with the ocean. Please keep sharing. Where did you find the trackers and how do I access them? My date is approaching the 31st, I'm in liquid diet mode. I see my surgeon on the 17th. Any advice?

      2. SabrinaGoddess

        You got this sis! You totally do.
        The ocean is so peaceful. Some days I get blessed with seeing whales, dolphins and seals. It is truly amazing.

        You can go to under our name at the top left section and click "TICKERS" you can create them there. Then when you lose weight you just go to "my surgery" and change your weight and they will adjust.

        On the liquids, do sugar free pop-cycles. They are more like a treat than a liquid and they count as 2 ounces each! Liquids not the funnest part of our journey but who cares....LOL. I do like the IsoPure clear liquid protein drinks, you can get them at GNC. The flavors are ok. I also LOVED Kettle and FIre Broth and Epic Broths so I drank them all the time, it's good for you. It's BONE BROTH. Kinda pricey but the good stuff usually is.

      3. Krimsonbutterflies

        Thank you for the encouragement/positivity!!! I'm going to conquer this liquid phase, moment by moment. I also appreciate the mini tutorial of how to get the ticker. I'm thinking of starting status updates after my pre-op visit with the surgeon on Friday. I really enjoy the personal perspective and experience being shared, without feeling like the thread is being dominated. I look forward to how each person is approaching the wls lifestyle. Thank you lady, good night. Happy Whale watching. I love seeing the dolphins at Hermosa Beach.
