Where is Lipstick Lady when I need her?

I hate this season too ESPECIALLY Christmas. I'd rather hibernate than deal with life!

I wish we had this option. I feel pretty down during winter, I would love to sleep it off.

I hear ya! I came to this forum looking for some support for about 25 pounds of regain I've had in the past year, and this time of year isn't helping matters at all! I've got to get back on track before I gain anymore!

I HATE THIS SEASON!!!! I have always, even as a child hated the Christmas season! I would like to stay in bed from September to the first of March. I'm having a really hard time lately, starving and wanting to eat everything and anything!! Not sweets so much as I want comfort food. And my pouch does not get full very quickly. I rarely throw up but might retch but I never was one to throw up anyway. I'm trying to stay positive, think about my goals, read this forum a lot but I'm still having a hard time!!

I ordered myself a Fitbit and joined the New Year Challenge on this board but I think I need a kick in the butt or head!! Which is why I wonder where Lipstick lady is because she has not been posting a lot!! Hopefully by 2017 I can get back to basics!

Crap Odie this comfort food post made me suddenly think about Pouding chômeur...argh! And Swiss cheese fondue (a Christmas Eve tradition in our house)

And ho-hum in the manner that watching my peeps getting called names for offering good advice is snoresville.

I agree with that.

When your doctor clears you for it. :) Not being a smart ass, but every plan is different. I was about 6-8 weeks in before I could have the above.

No worries I understand and so I'm seeing that on here. I was just curious and trust I'm following my doctors plans

Having RNY has actually change my taste to the point where I crave hot spicy food. Prior to that I would get sick with reflux if I ate something to spicy.

Make me very very happy!!!

Me too!

We went out for Thai food last night, and I ordered hot curry. The waitress said, "It's Thai hot, not American hot!"

It was amazing. I could not have eaten it before surgery. I don't know why, but I crave spice now.

I have talked to many people about this. I know our tastes change but I am shocked at how food was clearly once more bland to me.

My son is coming from Minneapolis tonight and I am making his favorite enchiladas. Of course, I will make one very spicy for me.....not sure if he can take the heat but I love it.

I also found a spicy new snack that I absolutely love! They are sweet chili spiced pistachios. They have just enough heat in them, I could even go a little hotter but they make me happy!

The meatballs - this is a really frequent meal in our house. Frozen turkey meatballs, pop them in a pie dish or other shallow baking dish and marinara. Bake as directed (about 15 min). Top with more sauce (I'm a saucy girl) and add parm or mozzarella. Bake for another 5-7 minutes. So good, so easy. And just adjust the amount of meatballs to your family size.

      Went to see the Star Wars movie yesterday. (Glad I waited as no one else was in the cinema for the midday session - yes!) Hadn’t been to the cinema for a few months and OMG I suffered the most terrible butt pain.  So uncomfortable. Started after 30 mins. Was in the premium cinema so grabbed a cushion to sit on but it didn’t help. Ended up sitting sideways in the chair, stretched out on an ottoman. Soooo super glad no one else was there. Sometimes I do miss my old butt fat cushioning... but not really.

      I have a surgery date, I have my next doctor appointment on Wed and then Thursday I start my 2 week liquid pre-op diet. I am very nervous right now. I know it's going to be a tough mind game.

      Week 5 Post Op Report

      What a journey! I am 5 weeks from surgery and a total of 24.4 pounds down!

      I feel amazing! I’ve incorporated a ton of walking and I’m using my Apple Watch to help me along! I have closed all three of my fitness rings for 11 days straight! Ok, so I am in LOVE with my Apple Watch. I've had it for almost a year and I am just now tapping into it's fitness power!

      I keep on top of my protein, vitamins and biotin!

      I struggle with water but I average about 50 ounces a day. I have only had one day where I had to “purge” because something did not agree with me. Tuna and my Tiny Tummy still do not agree so I’m going to leave it alone for a while!

      I walk on average a little more than 3 miles a day for my exercise but manage to get in at least 13,000-17,000 steps a day depending on how my schedule goes.

      I get up every hour and walk around for at least five minutes. Then if I’m watching a show I get up and walk in place during the commercials!

      I meet with my doc this week for a progress report.

      I have one more week before I graduate from soft foods to the final phase!

      I’ve got my cookbooks ready, my food scale ready and my measuring plates ready!

      I could NOT be more happy with my progress! I feel amazing and I’m grateful to have this tool!

      None Scale Victory: My rings on my finger are spinning!

        Sabrina, you are doing so well. I'm truly inspired and equally excited for you. The view you shared is breathtaking and relaxing, I'm in love with the ocean. Please keep sharing. Where did you find the trackers and how do I access them? My date is approaching the 31st, I'm in liquid diet mode. I see my surgeon on the 17th. Any advice?

      2. SabrinaGoddess

        You got this sis! You totally do.
        The ocean is so peaceful. Some days I get blessed with seeing whales, dolphins and seals. It is truly amazing.

        You can go to under our name at the top left section and click "TICKERS" you can create them there. Then when you lose weight you just go to "my surgery" and change your weight and they will adjust.

        On the liquids, do sugar free pop-cycles. They are more like a treat than a liquid and they count as 2 ounces each! Liquids not the funnest part of our journey but who cares....LOL. I do like the IsoPure clear liquid protein drinks, you can get them at GNC. The flavors are ok. I also LOVED Kettle and FIre Broth and Epic Broths so I drank them all the time, it's good for you. It's BONE BROTH. Kinda pricey but the good stuff usually is.

      3. Krimsonbutterflies

        Thank you for the encouragement/positivity!!! I'm going to conquer this liquid phase, moment by moment. I also appreciate the mini tutorial of how to get the ticker. I'm thinking of starting status updates after my pre-op visit with the surgeon on Friday. I really enjoy the personal perspective and experience being shared, without feeling like the thread is being dominated. I look forward to how each person is approaching the wls lifestyle. Thank you lady, good night. Happy Whale watching. I love seeing the dolphins at Hermosa Beach.
