August 2013 Roll Call



Recommended Posts

I'm allowed Protein and salad (not everything, but a good enough list) once a day, as well as I can substitute a shake for a yoghurt. So I'm probably getting more calories than you but I haven't counted or worked it out, I'm simply following the NUTS plan.

For those of you on a liquid diet I have a question. How many calories are you getting in a day? I started my liquid diet on the 30th and have only been getting in around 400 calories a day is this normal or do I need to get in more calories. If I need more calories can anyone give me pointers on how to get more in please.

I tried to get 800 with 100 gms of Protein, less than 50 gms of carbs. It was quite easy for me. 3 shakes with almond milk and sometimes one, other times 2 scoops of Protein Powder. That's usually 170 or 340 calories each respectively.Three veg Soups of 50 calories each.

I agree... Not so bad. I have one incision that is hurting and some gas pain on the left side of my chest- other than that its really not that bad. I hope all of my sister sleevers are doing this well!

        I haven't pooped in a weed and I'd love a 4 pound poo right now lol

      2. ms.sss

        Lol, yeah, I've been known to drop 3-ish lbs after a good (and long awaited) poop.

        .....or even after a moderate to severe dumping episode. yikes.

        Those are championship cups for both you guys! :) I personally came up a 1.4lb winner this morning. ;) hehehehe.

      I met with my surgeon on Friday.. I've completed all my tests and all my nutrition meetings as well as meeting the weight loss requirements for my insurance. We are officially submitting to insurance for approval and I was given a surgery date of January 16th 2020 (13 days before my birthday!) Fingers crossed all goes through

      Ok, now im getting old...my body gets me up at my normal 5am dog walk even when it's the weekend, vacation, and most importantly when I'm sick. So now that I have more energy, my body wants to make sure I suffer even longer during the day when I have a cold! Damn being healthy again! (:D)

      At my Primary Physician appt, the Doc said you know you lost a whole person. When you started seeing me you were 265lbs now you're 148lbs.
      She's right... I lost the fun me 😂 Joking Joking Joking. It's amazing who keeps track when you don't like insurance and browsers feeds
