How about some NSVs!?!?



Recommended Posts

Can anyone tell me how to get 60 to 8o grams of Protein in my diet daily. I will be having bypass in may...thx for your help

I assume you are talking post op. But either way, I got mine the first few months post op with Premiere Protein Drinks from Wal-Mart. They are 11 oz and have 30 gr of protein. Two of those get you the minimum. Also early on Isopure Protein waters from GNC were a lifesaver for me during the all liquid stage. Some people don't like the flavor but personally I enjoyed them. Especially over ice. They come in several different flavors and taste like kool-aid. If you mean pre-op or after the liquid phase, I eat lots of rotisserie chicken or grilled chicken. My favorite yogurt is Danon Lite & Fit with 12 gr of protein per serving. Also the chocolate on top flavors really satisfy my desert cravings when I have them. Grilled or baked fish is great also. Just be sure the package says "wild caught" and not farm raised. My other option for extra protein is in the deli section or your store. They are the Oscar Mayer P3 protein packs. They have nuts, cheese and deli meats. A great snack and each package has 11 or 12 grams of protein

My NSV... I got to shop on the right side of Catos last week!! Some super cute stuff

Since my surgery May 1st I am no longer taking BP medications (those were discontinued within the first month of surgery), I am currently weaning off my heartburn meds and I no longer use my CPAP! I can't believe how great I feel. I get easily frustrated since I've been at the same weight for some time now but I look at these NSVs and it helps keep things in perspective!

I'm the same way..... I've lost 90 pounds but sit between 185 and 188 for a while now. But I can tell how much the weight loss helps because today I walked 8 miles without my knees and ankles hurting. Also went on a plane and the seat wasn't uncomfortable and the seat belt fit. All little NSVs but I'll take them

My ID was refused. I had to bring up my Facebook profile on my phone to prove that the name and address matched my driver's license.

Oh well I have to head to get some new bras. My 36 band no longer fits and my boobs fall out the bottom too often. And as my husband says in a pouty face, "there is too much room in the cup area too". It is hard to laugh when he is pouting, but at least I did not spit out my coffee this time.

So excited! I am wearing size 18 pants! NOT even 18W pants, just plain old 18s! Except that I have always been top heavy and generally one size bigger on top, my next shopping trip will be to the MISSES section, instead of plus!

I have to say that regular size clothes fit my shape so much better. I have fairly skinny muscular legs and plus size pants tended to give me to much space in the butt and thighs. The jeans I am wearing today fit, excpet they are too long and I am walking on the hems. There was a time in my life when I thought I had average length legs. I was very wrong! I keep walking on my hems!

On Sunday I had plans to mow/weed eat the lawn (which I have been paying someone to do the last few years) and then my sister called and wanted to go for a walk. I went for a 3 mile walk AND worked in the yard for almost 2 hours and didn't die! Seriously just the lawn used to sideline me for a couple of days. Amazing how much more I can do now at 135 pounds down. Also went to a Dr yesterday whom I haven't seen in about a year and a half and had no idea I had the surgery. She was amazed and so encouraging! And PS it just never gets old when a Dr office hands me the smaller robe instead of the largest they have and even then it didn't fit right!
