Hope everyone is doing well. I weighed myself this morning and I'm up 2 lbs after the holidays. I have been sick for the entire time with a bad cold that has morphed into either bronchitis or walking pneumonia and the only thing I can really taste is either sweet or salty. My old eating behaviors reared their ugly heads and I was eating too many processed junk foods and high-sugar items like Cookies (my nemesis). So below is my list of New Years Resolutions. Posting them here to try

I'm up 2 lbs also, I had gotten to 146 before Xmas but am solidly at 148 (it's not Water weight!). I am amazed at how fast and easy it is to put weight back on. I joined the Valentine's day challenge and hope to get these two pounds plus four more off. Fingers-crossed because my loss has crawled to a snail's pace over the last 2 months. Keep on moving Feb sleevers!

I meant to post this before but screwed it up. Anyway, here's my list of 2014 resolutions. I am hoping that posting them here will help me stay accountable and on-track. Already having trouble with the TV one.

This year-2014

I will eat slowly, savor and enjoy my food.< /p>

I will strive to get at least 1/2 hour cardio every day.

I will stop eating in response to emotional upsets, boredom, lack of intimate connections in my life.

I will track my food intake and strive to eat 60-80 grms of Protein every day.

I will strive to avoid eating foods with processed sugar.

I will turn off the TV when eating.

I will weigh myself everyday.

I will read this and update it, if necessary, every day!

Hey all you Feb 2013 sleevers! I hope everyone is doing well! I just wanted to report that like many of you I had slowed to about 5 lb loss per month starting about July (5 mos after surgery). I continued that way till Nov where I lost 9.2, then Dec where I lost 10.4. I am hopeful I can continue this better monthly loss trend. The only thing different I think is that I am more active and have been going to Curves and have been increasing my Protein intake. My Curves had a Holiday Challenge from Nov 27 to now and I lost 13.5 over that time! Bah on those yummy looking Cookies that I wanted, lol.

For those interested I have been loving these Kay's Naturals Snacks and cereals that all have high protein/low cal. Search online for discounts!

I am 11 months out and have lost 55 lbs. I was at 165 before holidays but am at 168 now. I am ready to buckle down and continue losing and want to get to 150 then ultimately 135.

I am upping dense Protein intake to help with that and logging

I will continue running and resume circuit training as soon as I overcome this winter illness. This is only the 2nd time I've been sick since surgery but it is a mean one and I wanted to eat comfort foods, especially in the beginning of it

I have been sick too with a bad cold that became an upper respiratory infection. I was definitely "feeding" my cold and not getting any exercise. I'm also not ready to resume my workouts. Hope you feel better soon!

The holidays and my sleeve have NOT gotten along. No who am I kidding, it's MY doing!

SW: 257

Preholidays: 152

CW: 156

Goal: 143

So ya the 4 pounds bother me, but it's more the fact that I'm watching myself slip back into horrible habits! And I need to change before the slope gets slippier. ..

CONFESSION: I've gone to Tim Hortons everyday for the last 2 weeks and eaten a chocolate chip cookie! I've gone back to drinking sweet tea. I don't eat enough Protein. I haven't done ANY exercise since...... Thanksgiving......

Ughhh I KNOW what I'm doing wrong but can't seem to switch it off. I've GOT to get back on track here. I hate the new site and wasn't going to come anymore but I could really use some encouragement and reminders! (It's hard at home with a husband who thinks you should "stop losing now")

We are all in the same boat, struggling with post-holiday weight gain, old, destructive eating habits coming back, and lack of exercise (other than shoveling snow). First of all I would gently suggest that you may have a sugar addiction. I know I do. So stop with the sweet tea and the Cookies. You know what you need to do. I wasn't going to come back here either cuz I didn't like the new app but realized that I really need the support. So I'm back, hangin around. Check out the Valentine's Day challenge. That might help you get motivated. You are really close to goal, as am I, and I just need a little kick in the butt to get myself going again. Tell your hubby that you need his support and find out why he's potentially sabotaging you. He might think that you look just fine now or maybe he's tired of hearing you talk about the struggle. Up to you to have that conversation. For myself, it's the realization that I can't afford to become complacent about what I'm eating and not track my food. Otherwise, it's a quick and slippery slide back UP the scale!

After the holidays I decided to get my butt into gear again. I've been meal planning and sticking to it. I figured the good losing was over but I've dropped two pounds in two days, I wasn't expecting that at all. I have been at 185 for roughly three weeks so 183 was a pleasant surprise.

I still can't figure out my old screen name or password so I think I will be staying on this one. Hope that doesn't lead to much confusion. I promise I've been with the group since the pre-op days but not as active post op. Guess it's time to add a pic and fill out the profile.

hw-315

Sw- 294 (2/4)

Cw- 183

My realistic goal weight was 200 size 16, I've surpassed that and now I've set it to 175. I hope to adjust from there once I see what my body looks like,.

Hope everyone is well and to love that this thread is still active.

Hello February sleevers!!!! I was just wondering what kind of Protein Drinks are y'all taking?? I was on Premier Protein but got tired of only choclate!!!! Since I can't stand vanilla. So a friend took me to an herbalife shake shop and their shakes r amazing!!!! With 220 calories 29g of Protein oh and I also take herbalife Vitamins. What do ya think?? I don't take any other supplement only their shakes and vitamins. Has anybody else tried herbalife shakes and vitamins?
