Post Op September Sleevers, Roll Call



Recommended Posts

Ladies' date=' are you all still getting in at least one Protein Shake a day? I swear, that is what makes or breaks you. My surgeons office says we should have one a day forever! Protein, protein, protein. You have to make sure you get your protein in. I slip up more than I care to admit but I always get my protein in. Plus, the exercise is so important. And this coming from the president of the "I hate to exercise" club! I do 35 minute on the elliptical every other day (for the most part). I hate it but I make myself do it. I also try and track all my food on My Fitness Pal. My name is barisaxylady on there too if you want to add me. We can do this ladies! We had MAJOR surgery! Work the tool the good surgeon gave you![/quote']

I think you have to enter email address on MFP.

What is your email?

I just threw your situation out to my Facebook community and they agree, you are not eating enough to support all that exercise.

NGM- sounds like your body is just going through an adjustment time. You are doing such a great job!!! It's hard to not get frustrated when your doing everything right. Put your scale away and just focus on your measurements. Have you taken them lately? With your increased exercise you muscle mass has got to be changing.

Measure everything.

I just wanted to update - I have had a few stalls but have passed my surgeon's goal and I am 1 pound from my original personal goal. I have lowered my personal goal and hope to reach that by September (9/10/13 will be my one year!). I am hoping to have plastic surgery late July-August. I hate to exercise and have not really started - I do walk to work everyday and only use the stairs while at work. I would like to start exercising but it seems like I never have enough motivation to actually do it. I don't drink Protein Shakes - I don't even count my Protein anymore. I usually end up getting all of my protein but I don't worry about the protein as much as I focus on not eating too many carbs or calories. I do count calories religiously and I use MFP. Essentially I think I have changed the way I eat and have really adapted my habits. I have experienced minimal Hair loss - and I notice the thinning but since I had very thick hair it is barely noticeable to others.

NGM- sorry to hear you've been not feeling well. I know that must have been scary. I get dizzy alot. Happens when I've been sitting and move to stand up. Feels like things get dark and dizzy but then it passes. Not sure if that's what's been happening to you. I've heard that is common And they Arn't sure as to why it happens. I also read that we all tend to have a lower Blood Pressure than before loosing weight.

I hope the problems your having get better soon. Hugs to you my friend and let me know what they way about this dizzy thing.

I was really dizzy the other day. Just sitting at my desk working. The blood pressure thing is probably right, I have noticed that my pulse is much, much lower than it used to be. So bizarre to me. But that said, I did start drinking more Water that day. And I felt better. I know that I am constantly walking around on the edge of dehydration. Just cannot seem to get in the Water. It's the bane of my existence. I used to drink 64+ ounces a day. Now I'm good to get in 24. It's pathetic. I wake up every single morning with my mouth and lips so dry and stuck. It's awful.

We have to be so careful. And this heat in the summer is a killer. Especially for us who just physically cannot consume enough liquid. Be careful NGM! More water everyone!!

green thanks, a co worker told me whts wrong and it makes since, i have high bp and i take meds and i drink coffee everyday and i workout almost everyday intensely she said that the meds and excersise brings it down and the coffe brings it up that could exlplain the whole dizzy thing im just off balance so she said try stopping coffe and lower my dosage and see what happens well i didnt workout out for 3 days and cut my pill in half and not as dizzy. i did have about 3 oz of coffee but thats the most i will have. and by the way i gained 5lb lbs and i really think its the Water i am holding on to it i drink lots of Water so i guess i have to reduce mysodium more.

momof i found it easy if you by one of the starbucks venti glasses they sell withthe straw. 4 of those and you are done. it works, i also put fruit in my water.

Happy Wednesday!!!

It's quiet here so let's get it rolling. How is everyone?? I'm in a holding pattern. Trying to find out a good calorie count for me. I want to maintain and I've always eaten low calorie around 800 or so daily. Recently, I've up them to a little over 1000 and guess what??? I gained two pounds. ????

What the hey!!! I should be able to eat at least 1200-1400 daily but my body wants to gain if I do it. Has anyone found a happy spot?
