Ok Deanna - my goal is 1200 minutes of exercise this month! I'd like to lose 12lbs, but I keep feeling like its not going to happen. I lost 4lbs last week, but now I'm up 2lbs. I feel like a failure. I gotta get my butt back in the gym. I haven't been since sunday...

Don't get discouraged! Remember to get Protein in especially when you are exercising every day. When you lift weights get your limit of carbs in also. Drink plenty of Water that's also a key! consistency! consistency! You can do this!

Hey Deanna - I know we're in the exercise thread but I was wondering what your eating is like. I'm trying to figure out if I'm still eating too much. I track it in fitday and I'm eating approx 1500 calories a day. How many are you taking in. You've definately lost a good amount of weight so far! I'm jealous.

At my 3rd fill I felt like I was filled too much, so I asked the doc to take half out. But then I felt like I could still eat a lot so I asked for another fill about a month later. I'm only .4cc's away from where I felt too filled, but I wonder if she adds that in next time I see her if it will feel the same (too filled) or if it will help me lose better...

jm, I really wish I could give you a honest answer, but I have no idea how many calories I get a day. I do know that they vary from day to day, but I couldn't even begin to tell you what they are. Like yesterday after my 23 miles on the bike, I ate more that I would have only going 10 miles. Right after surgery I was keeping track of my calories on fitday, but I was getting so little calories that I didn't really see the need to do it anymore and then I just haven't done it again. I have lost well, and I guess I don't want to mess with a good thing. I guess I could try to write it down for a few days and see what the calories are, but I might be scared when I see the numbers!!! I am definitely not one of those people who can live on 600 calories a day, I bet I am up above 1500, but that is only a guess. Sorry!!! You are rockin' that exercise!! Keep up the good work!

Thats great news...I was hoping you weren't one of those 600 calories is all I need people. You have helped to motivate me to work out, and if I heard you ate 600 calories I think I would have an anxiety attack! For me, it seems the weight isn't coming off how I'd like, but I'm not gonna give up on the exercise because I feel a lot better, and I know I look a lot better, even though I haven't lost that much weight in the past few weeks...Thanks for motivating me!

I am glad that I could help. You know, yesterday I told the last of my SILs about my surgery. She told me about a gal she knows who had the surgery and has lost quite a bit of weight. She has not exercised at all!!! I told my SIL that was so stupid. Why spend that much money and have this done to not exercise and have muscle and high metabolism. I could not imagine doing this with just the band. I want to move, our bodies were made to move, not sit and be inactive. The feelings of physical well being are soooo strong in me now that I get out of control grouchy when I don't get in my exercise!!

I told my DH the other night, I couldn't believe how much money we have spent on exercise equipment over the past couple of months, before banding, the only thing I wanted to spend money on was eating out!!!!! Lots of eating out!!

      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.....

      5. SabrinaGoddess

        @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.

      4. ms.sss

        I feel ya.
