April 16th role call - who's with me!



Recommended Posts

Sorry gals. Meant to reply sooner but work/life has been busy lately! I am still loosing but it's at a snails pace. I don't have much body fat left on me, so I've had to rethink my original 140 goal weight. Actually, my weight went UP recently as I began training hard for an upcoming event. I have been around 150 and the last few weeks it suddenly went up to 154. Things didn't compute as my diet was the same and I was logging sometimes 14 miles per day! My size 8 jeans were becoming baggy on me, so I decided to focus on my measurements vs what the scale is reporting. Now my weight is back down to 151. My daughter and I wear the exact same clothes and she is 134, so I've come to learn that weight is just a number. I didn't like how skinny fat I had become and now that I am exercising, my muscles are becoming tone and I'm building muscle. I've accepted that I may actually gain weight as I continue exercising and as long as I like the way I look, I'm okay with that! As far as what I'm eating, I could probably clean it up a bit more. I log everything in my lose it app on my phone to maintain accountability. I eat carbs but they are not my main go-to like they were pre-surgery. A typical day consists of: a Quest Protein Bar for Breakfast, a few dried mango mid-day, a small turkey/cheese lunchables, beef Jerky (although the sodium makes me retain Water weight so I'm backing off a tad) and maybe a yoplait yogurt. At dinner I typically defrost one of the premade containers I have in the freezer ready to go. I find this helps me with turning to take out or drive throughs on the way home from work. Some current favorites are a stew and chicken skillet Pasta dish that are portion sized and fill me up. I don't feel like I deprive myself. If I have a specific craving, I eat it. I try to avoid slider foods and there are certain foods that just don't appeal to me anymore. I can't remember the last time I had a sandwich. The idea of eating that much bread makes me want to vomit. I continue to participate in the challenges on this site and I find having to check in helps me with accountability.

I'm still here! My weight is stuck again! I don't eat bread at all! It just don't taste the same anymore. I also don't eat Pasta I occasionally will eat a little rice but not much those are pretty much the three things that I have gave up I eat a baked potato from time to time but no french fries or fried potatoes that's some of the things that I miss but don't crave anymore! I have to admit I have been slacking on the gym so I'm trying to get back to that.

Hey everyone!!! Just wanted to say hey and tell you all that my husband is having sleeve done tomorrow!! I feel like I'm having surgery again because I'm so nervous and excited for him all together!!! I hope you all are doing well. I can't wait for him to feel like a new person like I do. I wore size 8 pants to work today and a new blouse and got so many compliments. It was so wonderful to feel pretty! I can't remember ever really feeling proud of myself. I think it's so special to me because I worked so hard to get to this point. Well, I could go on forever with how happy it has made me..but I won't. I want my husband to feel that joy in his life as well. Please pray all goes well for him tomorrow.

So nice to hear from you sleeve! I hope your Husband has a speedy recovery! I often wonder how everyone is doing in theirjourney. I still frequent the boards often, but find my interest is dwindling as the newbies ask the questions I had in the beginning!

My hair is just... AWEFUL. Thin and I fear will never be what it once was. Partially my fault as I don't think my Protein intake is what it should be. Outside of that, nothing more to complain about. I have been maintaining at 148 with very little effort. I seem to drop 3-4 pounds every 3 months or so but I think that may now stabilize. People finally seem to have accepted me at my new weight and the comments have finally stopped (thank God.) please don't be a stranger and stay connected!!!!!

I had my sleeve done on 4/16/2014 and I am still not at goal. Any suggestions. My doctor didn't really have any support groups. He just started.

Hi everyone! April 2014 sleeve. Started at 270 and surgery weight was 254 and I am at 208 as of this morning because of a 20 pound regain over this past year. The lowest I have gotten so far was 191 and I know it is going to be a tough journey getting to goal since the honeymoon period is totally over:( Looking for some support and motivation. I am hoping that I can make 2016 the year that this happens for me and be able to use this surgery as a tool and knock this out!! Hope all of you are doing well:)
