Did you find the link to thread @kakatlady612 is talking about? I went to 4 of the forums to find it? :(

Sweetie you gotta hook me up with the links. :-/

You go to that post your talking about. Go up to the address bar that tells you where you're at and use your mouse.

Right click 1 time and hold the button down. You'll see a drop down menu.

Run the mouse down until it highlights the "Copy" line. Left click once on that line to select it.

Then you come back here and click on a reply window and click 1 time in the empty window.

Right click again and run the mouse down to highlight "Paste" line. Left click once on that line to select "Paste".

If you did it right, you will see an underlined address within the window. Now hit the return or Enter button to get off of that line and you've created a link. (There are other ways to do it, but this is your first lesson and the easiest.)

I just want to give a 5 o'clock somewhere update to all you hosers sittin' there in your private Idaho suckin' back a brewski.

Today is VASTLY different from the 3 previous days. I'm pretty sure I'm going to live and I just had a contraband SF Dr. Diet Pepper (ie Diet Dr. Peppy). I don't usually have caffeine or sugar free drinks, but I'm like what the hell! I'll run with scissors!

And I'm so excited! I got my box of Celebrate Vitamins. I got a variety pack to try out on the 3-in-1 powder Vitamin mix. I just mixed up the orange citrus flavor and good golly Miss Molly. It's totes worth it! So damn good. Can't wait to try the other ones later. There's a very faint bitterness (emphasis on very) and it's damn sweet, so I will definitely mix it with more Water. But I think that dog will hunt! Huuuuurrrrraaaaahhhhh!

Day 4 is done! Slamma jamma! For the most part it was an easy peasy day. Not a lot of hunger until last night. Hunger got ahead of me and I just had to white knuckle it and put myself to bed early-ish. And this morning I woke up hungry. So it's too early to tell if Day 5 is gonna suck or not. I can tell you that with each day that passes, it gets more and more difficult to cook for Mr. F. LOL. Big wah huh? LOL.

I think when it comes time for me to do the liquid diet, I might try to make a bunch of freezer meals for my hubby and the kids... and then head out for a walk during dinner. Cooking for them is going to be a challenge for sure.

Yeah, this is so true. Making leftovers for meals is DEF easier. That's what I'm doing for Mr. F. I made a bunch of different meats, portioned them and froze them (i.e. pot roast, grilled chicken cut into chunks and strips, grilled fajita meat cut into strips, hamburger base with hamburger onion, peppers, spices, chili, Soups, etc.) Then I really only have to make the fresh veggie and/or salad of some kind. But still, I am interacting with food and smells, so it does make it easier thank cooking but less easy than shear avoidance. I do like your idea of going for a walk during the meal! Great idea girlie!

        :) I give you permission to stand up every hour from your seat, kinda jiggle and shake and move your legs and sing along to whomever is on the screen at the time. :)

        My boyfriend might sneak away and leave me at the theater if this happens

      3. FluffyChix

        I doubt that. :D I'm thinking he likes livin' on Fantasy Island too much. :D

      4. Orchids&Dragons

        That's wonderful! I have trouble sitting still in the movies now. (I even fidgeted through the last John Wick, and it was awesome) I can't imagine sitting still this soon after surgery. More power to ya! Have fun!

        Fun! Why not?

        It will be interesting to watch as this theory develops. Thanks for posting!

      Feel like it's time for a status update, I haven't been on here regularly in a while and I need to keep my mindset focused on my goals.
      I haven't weighed myself in ~ 3 weeks.  I think I'm becoming the opposite of "obsessive" about tracking my progress and it could cause me some issues.  The good thing is that there have still been quite a number of NSV's happening that is telling me that I'm still progressing without knowing what the scale says.
      First one is that a belt I bought about 5 weeks ago because all my other belts were too big is also on the last hole so I'll have to buy yet another belt again.  second, I bought new jeans about a month ago and I have a lot more slack in the waist than I did when I purchased them.  I also boarded a plane and had about 8 inches of slack in the belt.  Finally, I hit my goal last week of being able to ride go-carts with my kids.  The last time I tried about 4 years ago, I had to leave because I couldn't fit in the harness.  This was sweet victory and I showed those two how it was done on the race course!!  😈

      I just looked through all my old pants after my pre-op pants started getting to big. Keep in mind that I wear men's pants (usually cargos) because I am so tall 5'10"/5'11" ish. I also find that men's baggies tend to fit me better.
      I started out at a 44 in waist pant and quickly found that I was back down to my 42's. So even when thise got to be too big, I had to start pulling old clothes out of storage. After finding my 38's, I thought that these would not yet fit, but when I tried them on, they fit perfectly. I also found some older pants that now fit better than I remembered. What a relief! It's not like I can pop down to the store like I could do in the US and the styles here in Sweden are all skinnt jeans which I cant stand. I also found some 36's, but I'm not mentally ready to try those on yet. The biggest challenge will be buying women's clothing again.

      slow and steady wins the race.  don't get discouraged and just keep at it. Let your sleeve do its job and try not to stress yourself out.
      hope you are all having a great summer and enjoying what your sleeve has given you.
      just got back from a wedding in OR. and man am i afraid to get on the scale

        Great reminder about how fast you can lose weight. The mind games we play with ourselves are the worst.
