I went to Vegas last weekend for a few days, I did not do great. I had chips during the long drive and while I was there, ate some things outside of my routine. When I got back, I had gained about 1.5 lbs, but went right back to my routine and things are flowing as normal now.

One thing I would do differently in a future, is plan my Meals way better. Take sufficient food for a couple of days

One thing I can say, I used to love buffets, now I feel like they are a waste of my money considering the portions

Enjoy your trip and plan well:).

Hope the vacation part is at least fun. I'm one week into a huge kitchen remodel so its really been tough. Thankfully my husband and I don't eat much having both been sleeved or we might starve. At least I can still get in my Proteins via drinks, yogurts, cheese, etc. but we have eaten out more which doesn't always agree with me. Happy with progress so far since we've now made it to the 8 week mark. Down to 186. I just broke a 2nd stall that lasted about 10 days. I have so much more energy now! Feels really good. Hope everyone is doing well!!

Hi everyone!!! I'm so excited, I finally broke my loooong stall. Down 7 lbs in 11 days!!!! Down 33 ugly awful pounds since surgery!!! Yaaayyy!!! I'm tracking my calories ( usually under 900) I think I was just eating unhealthy high Protein like bacon. Now I'm eating more "lean meat" like chicken, seafood, fish and shrimp. At night when I get the evening munchies, I eat a string cheese. That helps.

I have restriction for sure, but I believe I was putting unhealthy food in my body that was helping to cause my stall. I've never was a healthy eater, so I'm just taking this day by day.

Can you all believe that it's been 8 weeks since surgery? ??

      I hate these Lovenox shots.  That is all! LOL
      Feeling like a pin cushion.
      I know they are needed and it's only 10 days worth but I really hate giving myself shots. It's one of the reasons I want to be healthy because diabetes runs in my family

      Yas, I am HOME! Traveling back home was interesting but I made it.
      For the first time in my flying life we had NO drink service due to the turbulence! It was crazy. I had to call the steward to bring me water. You CAN NOT let yourself get behind on drinking! That would be dangerous.

        yeahhhhhh we are only 3 months apart on the sleeve journey. I found it has been way easier to lose with the sleeve than it was with the band...... although i loved my band. Sleeve was the easiest SX i ever had too.....

        @bayougirlmrss I was told this is the fastest weight loss surgery, but I am not really looking for extremely fast. I want it to be healthy. This is our new tool and we can use it wisely for sure. Are you taking your biotin and vitamins?

      TOMORROW IS MY DAY! (note this did not post properly so I am still  posting it after the fact)
      I am so very excited! My sister is here with me and my son. I am so excited. My anesthesiologist called me tonight to discuss our plans for tomorrow. I am not feeling nervous at all. Just excited for the future!
      I did buy a few bottles of CFpreop which is really suppose to help you stay hydrated. It's pricey but I feel it's worth it. I tried the Watermelon tonight. I have to stop all liquids after midnight and I go into the hospital at 5:30am for check in. My surgery is at 8am.
      SO HAPPY for this journey!
      You can get the CFpreop on Amazon if anyone is interested. It comes in Watermelon and White Grape.

      Today I said I’m an XS or size 8 (Aust) at a clothing store. I never thought I’d say those words and say them with confidence. And when I commented a dress was too big on me I was told it was the smallest size. As was the belt I wanted. 
       
      I tried on a slim fitting singlet dress yesterday & was shocked to realise the lumpy bits on the dress were my hip bones. I have an hour glass shape so I always had hips but never ones that stuck out on the front of my body! 

      I’ve been a size 10 before - for about 5 minutes. While I am now confident about saying I’m an 8, clothes shopping is all still a bit freaky for me. It’s not that I’m focussed on the size on the label. I’m well aware the cut/line of the clothes and the designer’s style will dictate what size I need or if it will suit my body shape. The size is the starting point & it’s starting at an 8/XS/38 which is a big mind set change. It’s thinking a pair of pants will be too small & discovering they are almost too big. 

      While I’m still coming to terms with my actual new body shape and size, I’m very happy to be in this new reality.

        ...ah! I see you are from Brisbane! We lived there for a year when Mr. got a work contract there.

        I have fond (and not-so-fond, lol) memories of the weather there this time of year. It it crazy hot yet?

        Hit 42degress last weekend but this week has been in the rather pleasant low 30s (relatively of course😜). Could still wear jeans but thank goodness for air conditioning. Worse is the drought. Everything is dying or dead. Very sad & depressing.

        I feel ya.
