I broke my stall by saying the heck with it and not focusing on a Protein number and trying different things and reducing my calories. I lost 7 pounds last week, can't wait to see what this week brings

Not in a stall but just slow.. Ugg Its always right before a goal.. Waiting patiently :rolleyes:

I've been thinking that I have been stalled for about a month, and was getting pretty frustrated and down about... Thank the Lord for mfp, a quick look through my posts revealed that I have actually lost 8 pounds over the last month. Woot woot! No more pity party :-D

I learned yesterday I have no restrictions (Not good) I have feared bread for the last 4 months and now not so much. I had a Smash Burger Yesterday (ate the whole thing in 2.5 sessions) It was over 1,000 calories for the one I chose don't get me wrong there was a slight side effect. (the ability to drink Water behind it) It had been over an hour and I went to drink water and it was as though I ate a house I became over filled very fast, I guess the bread from the burger was still inside me and caused serious bloating. (Not a great feeling) I won't lie that was enough to keep me from wanting bread again any time soon but wow the fact that the bread did not bother me alone scares me since I feel breads pastas and rice are the main reason I became this big to begin with. :huh: I am strong, I know I had a moment I am over it and today back on track. I wont let the devil win I came to far and been through to much to allow those Bad foods back into my life. I will beat this weight no matter what! :)

Hi December Team,

I havent been here in a while and i was really down on myself because I lost sight of how much work it will take to reach my goal and began eating whatever, and not working out as much as I should.

But since I cam back to our December page I am motivated again to work as hard as i did at the beginning of this surgery!

The goal I'm reaching for now is to be under 200 by 4/30/13

I weight:

4/6/13- 207 lbs

Goals:

4/30/13 - 199-195lbs

5/30/13- 186-180lbs

6/30/13- 175-170lbs

7/30/13- 165-160lbs

Big Goal:

10/19/13(my birthday)- 145-140lbs

Thanks for all the motivation team!!!

I haven't been on in the last month, but so much has changed. Down 52 lb 12/19/12. I started walking two miles almost everyday and I'm now doing a squat challenge. I'm about to start the breakup process...from a five year relationship. It's not the weight, I am just so unhappy where I am. That being said I am no longer hungry at all. I don't know of it is from exercise or my nerves??? Ideas!? Also my hair is so thin now I loose so much daily....what do you all use to help with this issue. This may sound like a sad or negative post, but it isn't. I'm so proud of my progress, but I'm just a little worried about my hair and appetite. Also all you walkers....how many miles do you do and how often...what's you normal loss pattern? I'm wondering if I should walk more miles daily. THANKS Y'ALL!

Jalese -- You inspired me to set some realistic goals for myself! I had my surgery 12/26 and have lost 42 pounds since the surgery, 62 pounds since I started the journey. I keep a journal but had not really set goals. I am also putting the scale away so I can weigh myself every 2 weeks and quit stressing over the numbers. Thanks for the encouragement!

Slimforme -- I use 1 Biotin and 1 Skin, hair & Nails plus 2 Centrum vitamin/mineral tablets and 2 calcium chews per day, hopefully to prevent some of the Hair loss. I also take 2 Vitamin D each day. So far, I haven't had a lot of loss (surgery 12/26). Hope this helps!

I have been taking Super Biotin 6000 mcg by GNC since January. I still have hair loss...most noticeably in my temple areas of my forehead...like where men often lose their hair. I don't know that there is anything you can do to prevent the loss. All we have control over is getting the appropriate nutrition so that our bodies will re-grow hair later.

Also, I lost a toenail. I don't remember hurting the toe, but the nail turned black and fell off. That part isn't strange, but I can't see any signs of growth (of a new nail)....

I didn't start to lose my hair until I decreased my Protein about 3 weeks ago. I asked my nutritionist about it and she said hair was pure protein and my body was revolting because it was not getting enough. Not sure if that is why, but good information.

      My name is Jose and I am from the UK, I had a gastric bypass a month ago so I am at the beginning of my weight loss journey.
      I would like to know how many calories I should be eating a day to stay healthy, thank you for your time

        Hello Joset, why haven't you been given a diet plan? Did you have your surgery in the UK? Every surgeon has a different diet, and no two people are on the same one. Weird I know. Contact your team if you can

        Mine was two weeks clear liquids

        Two weeks on soups, milk shakes and broths all with out lumps

        two weeks on pureed foods { I couldn't stomach this step }

        two weeks on soft foods like Protein yogurt, stewed mince and veg, soft scrambled eggs. Pate on hard crackers

        Then onto any food I fancied. If you struggle on any step or with any foods go back a step for a few days. Eggs, salmon and chicken are hard for beginners.

        Sorry I missed your original post, hope you are still on here.
