what are the drinks please ? great visual- edit i saw your answer is the first 2 Water? is this all you drink per day?

The first two are Water, then coconut water, milk, and coffee. Each of the jars holds 2 cups, so 4 of them is 64oz. I'm very particular with the food, but the drinks are more flexible. I get at least that much, if I'm thirsty I drink more. Sometimes tea or extra Decaf coffee.

That's why it took 6 hours. Eat, wait 2 hours, eat... I'm almost never hungry... I eat because my body needs the fuel.

My favourite meal is: 1 piece of whole grain whole meal bread, fat free eye bacon avocado, egg and spinich. And a can of tuna and vita wheats have lots of Protein

@Meryline I'm so sorry you're hungry all the time! ((hugs)) That's a b***h and also exactly why I'm having the RNY. I gambling that it will reduce my hunger.

So will you post your most recent menu and daily calorie load/average daily macros? Also, if you input that into MFP and track sugar as one of your 5 tracked macros, what is the average daily sugar content (of course that's naturally occurring). I have some ideas about your hunger.

I think we figured out what is causing Meryline's hunger. She is a hair's breath from goal, and needed to increase her calories/protein/nutrition. Sometimes hunger isn't a bad thing! ;)

People may be getting bored of the Protein one.. how about asking how many carbs (and from whence they come)?

@Berry78 and @FluffyChix I had a 4 day weekend and stayed offline for the most part.

Yes, I'm hungry because I'm not eating enough. Still not eating enough, trying to figure out how I'm going to get more food in me, and still stay with in my guidelines of 50% Protein.

      Looks like I need people around to complete a 10K.  I tried to do one by myself this afternoon and I gave up at around the 7km mark.  Gonna try again on Friday, but I may have to look into joining a running club...

      My Surgeon asked me a question the other day and i didn't give it a lot of thought at the time.
      He asked "do you tell"
      we were talking about peoples reaction to seeing me since i lost such a large amount of me.
      I answered that i do tell if they ask but that it seems most everyone is afraid to mention it if they haven't seen me in a while or they decided they already know the answer so they don't need the truth from me (we all know those types)
      I have had exactly one family friend come right out and ask me how i lost so much weight this year and i told her i had Gastric Sleeve.
      I am sure family has passed it around to other family (you have that type family don't you? or is it just me)  
      So that left me wondering "do you tell" and i dont mean right at surgery time. more like a year or so down the road do you say how or do you just say cut out the sugar and carbs and WAALAA
      Its a real personal choice to open yourself up to that kind of criticism and we know all about how we took the "Easy" way and yada yada yada.
      hope everyone is having a great week

        If people ask, I am open about it

      2. ms.sss

        I'm about 10 months post op, and my standard answer is I eat way less and exercise way more (oh, and I cut the carbs by a lot). The only people I told were Mr., the Kid, BFF and my Mom.
