I make a "green" smoothie. Here's my recipe for it:

Base:

2oz frozen spinach

2oz frozen blueberries

30g (or about 1 scoop) Isopure banana cream Protein Powder (or any flavor)

1 eyedropper vitacost liquid vanilla stevia

16oz Water (or coconut milk or Fairlife fat free milk)

4-6 ice cubes

Nutrition with water as the base: 140 cals; 25g protein; 6g carbs; 2g fiber; 4g net carbs; 4g sugar naturally occurring

Variations:

6g whole psyllium husks (makes it thicker and lasts with me longer before hunger) - 21 cals; 5g carbs; 4g fiber; 1g nt. carb

6g vitacost Peanut Butter slim powder - 22 cals; 3g protein; 1g fat; 2g carbs; 1g fiber; 1g net carb

Nutrition when I'm doing a peanut butter banana blueberry with psyllium and water as the base: 183 cals; 28g protein; 1g fat; 13g carbs; 7g fiber; 6g net carbs; 4g sugar.

Nutrition when I'm doing a peanut butter banana blueberry with psyllium and 8oz Fairlife Fat Free Milk and 4-8oz water as the base: 263cals; 41g protein; 1g fat; 19g carbs; 7g fiber; 12g net carbs; 10g sugars (this would last me for 2 meals at least).

I know for DS you can have extra fats, so maybe add 1 tbsp or 2 of whole peanut or almond butter rather than the peanut butter slim powder. You can also add coconut oil if you feel like you have to have it or I sometimes add 1/4 of a ripe avocado.

      I can now buy clothes in normal stores again. Admittedly the first time when I started trying on clothes, I really had to keep myself calm. Normally trying on clothes causes me to become SOOO depressed that it take weeks just to get over it. Now, I have to keep myself from not wanting to buy everything!

      Hi, congrats on your surgery!  Saw you went to Dr. Pleatman.  I've been between doing the Lap Band and sleeve.  I was suppose to have a consultation with Dr. Pleatman this month.  So far great experience with his office coordinator Carrie (sp?).   Feeling really scared and nervous about getting the sleeve.  If you can share...how was your experience with Dr. Pleatman's office and the surgery?   Thanks!

      I'm not new, I was an active Lapbander from:

      February 6, 2017 Here I am on October 4, 2019 thinking back over my Lapband journey and how I thought I would be banded for life. Unfortunately, I have been sick for some time, and am on medications; and well my weight has constantly slowly increased. I was 225 pounds when I had my Lapband surgery on Dec. 17, 2010. At least my weight hasn't reached 210. I have been fluctuating between 202-206. For that, I'm grateful. I'm just excited to be able to have another tool to assist me with my weight loss journey. I'm not looking forward to the liquid stage, however.
