I will be 5 months out this Sunday, and I'm right there with you 48 lbs so far. Started at 238. It's been discouraging, especially when you read how people lose 40 or 50 lbs the first month or two. I figure the slower I loose, the less excess skin I will have. Just keep doing what your doing and be patient. Good luck.

You might consider adding some other fruit than banana which is very high in sugar, carbs. How about berries: strawberries, blueberries, raspberries.

I have been using the herbalife healthy meal shakes to increase my Protein intake (this is a Meal Replacement shake). Also my dr and dietician have told me to avoid fruits as much as possible since they are high is sugars. Down 77 at 6 months but probably started at a much higher weight 107 total.

When you are short and/or have less to lose, you lose slower. I'm in your same club (hobbit sized) and I think you are doing great. Maybe instead of focusing on eating less, or eating more low calorie fake foods, exercise more and boost your metabolism. It might be enough to kick your system into losing.

Think about it this way, you're about 20lbs from your goal in 5 months. That's 10lbs a month! This is good!!!

Sweetie, that's not bad in the weight loss! So now you've learned and will move on. Please forgive yourself and stop beating yourself up (that's part of the journey we have to learn - I believe we ALL do this to ourselves and used to use food as a solace, perhaps even a punishment in a way).

I like the ready to drink Protein shakes (RTDs as they are called). I am not a chocolate fan (except usually certain times of the month, lol). My current "fav" is OH YEAH brand in vanilla cream. Strawberries and cream is good in Oh Yeah's too! Oh yeah's are 220 calories/32 g of Protein and usually about 2 g of sugar per 14 oz bottles. They also have an 8 oz bottle for the vanilla creams that is 130 calories and 18 g of protein per bottle, fyi.

Pure protein is another brand that I enjoy. They come in actual cans but fyi the protein they use is a blend of whey and caseinate which some ppl say isn't as good as whey protein (but it's really how caseinate protein is absorbed, it takes longer to absorb in your body supposedly). Those cans are generally about 170 calories/35 g protein and about 2-4 g of sugar in each maybe 11 oz can. I like the Cookies and cream kind in that brand and the bananas and cream is ok as well (didn't care for their strawberry and the mint Cookies and cream got a bit minty half way thru the can).

Also, Premier Protein in vanilla is a good IMO too (that's 160 calories/30 g of protein and maybe 1 g sugar). They are 11 oz per container.

Maybe I'm lazy, but I like the RTds - easy to grab and go and you know exactly what carbs/sugar/etc are in there as well as calories and protein.

Hope that helps you! I do have some shake recipes if you want the old fashioned blender versions too!

Just pls forgive yourself and move on... it's a learning experience hon. You are rocking it with 50 lbs in 5 months - AND you won't have saggy skin from loosing too fast (it's all about perspective lol) Best of luck! xxx

Protein shakes can be so gross. I do Protein Bars found some that range from 15-30 grams of Protein a bar. much better than nasty shakes.< /div>

When did you start to eat the bars?

      Yesterday I "officially" eclipsed the 100 lb mark.  I'm sure if you're in any other country than the US, the 45.3 kg mark doesn't sound as much of a milestone, but it's very cathartic for me to post that I hit it. 
      I recently read back through both my BP status updates and my private journal and hitting this milestone makes all the things I "worried" about seem stupid, but I know they're not stupid because they were very real at the time.  Also, I think if I didn't give these fears my full attention, I may not have been as successful as I have been to date.
      I'm about 50 more pounds off my end goal and I know that will not be the end, I will continue to strive for bettering myself in both physical and emotional ways.  I have to hunker down and get this done. 
      I'm noticing if I don't exercise every day, the weight loss stalls quite a bit.  I'm not really into the 80/20 theory with diet and exercise, I think there's a genetic modifier that needs to be applied and it's different for everyone, just my opinion... don't hold it against me.

      RE: the running/training
      Honestly it started with me just doing laps around the kitchen that first post-op week.
      In a week, I graduated to walking up and down my street, then to walking around the block every day.
      The distance increased, then the speed.
      Then I started running little spurts during my walks, then to alternating 1km runs with 1km walks.
      And now I can do a continuous 10k (which I totally did for the first time this morning...so full of myself about it today, it’s disgusting.)
      Just do something everyday and slowly increase speed and duration, next thing you know you’ll be one of those odd “running people” (who I never understood pre-op, but now totally get, lol)
