Aussieslady ---things did not turn out well, read my topic" Change Your Hospital", I was original poster on it. I am a soap opera and a cheap,non well- constructed one at that. I could consider not living anymore but I'm the wronged person here, so why punish me? Let my persecutors be struck down instead of me. I've never cried down a vendetta on someone but does anyone have a spare Uncle Vito I could borrow?

Hi Guys, a temporary detour in my weight loss journey but I vow it will not be a roadblock. Still trying to make March-April even May although I don't want to wait that long. Anybody that wants more of the story check out my Change Your Hospital posting, I will not let the happenings embitter me. I am the same kakatlady as always, friend to all and a dog gone sweet person, if I do say so.

Oh yes. I started it February 20th. It appears to be one of the more strict ones out there. I am allowed 5 Meal Replacement shakes a day (Boost diabetic only actually) and Water. I wish I could say differently but it’s been challenging. I’ve lost about ten pounds though so that’s good. Sending you strength as you start yours!!

I'm only allowed 2 replacement shakes a day (I've been going back and forth with Atkins and premiere) with a lean cuisine for the first 7 days. The last 3 days is a clear liquid diet. It does feel amazing losing weight before! 10 pounds is amazing! This whole process has been very challenging and long. I'm glad I'm almost at the end of the tunnel. It sure has changed my eating habits and not to mention my portion size. Before my pre-op diet, my friends wanted to have a party and have great food as my "last meal", I only ate half of taco and felt sick to my stomach. I couldn't even enjoy the piece of cake I had. :( The chocolate Protein Shakes will have to do now. lol

You will be in my thoughts and prayers as we start this amazing journey together! :)

      I went to my 4th NUT appointment this week and I was absolutely surprised that I had actually lost 9 pounds from my last appointment.  I can get a bit obsessive when it comes to scale use so I've decided to only do pre-op weigh-ins at my monthly appointments.  It saves me a lot of anxiety, I think. 
      I actually was prepared to go to the appointment with excuses on why i gained, so this was a big win.  I didn't actually add much activity to my routine, the only thing I changed was having protein shakes every morning instead of just weekdays.  I really thought my extracuricular snacking activities were going to cause an issue, but I'm not going to let that make feel like it's ok to snack late or keep eating cheese non-stop.   Also probably helps that I had the stomach bug a couple days last week.  I think my organs liquified and came out....yuck...

      Stalls are the WORST.  I know they happen, but I am still disappointed.  I've been the same weight for over 2 weeks.

        Girl, that stall will break. Give your body a minute to realize what's happening and catch up with itself...it'll kick back in gear! 💓

        I know the feeling. I did some major online shopping with all the sales around black friday. In tops I wear anywhere between a S-L. In pants from 6-10. But I must own the world's most elastic panties, because -100+ lbs, I still wear the same undies! :lol:

      I went against my weekly weigh in and cheated today the scale says I'm 248 😂How? Maybe it's wrong lol I just purchased the scale and it's my first time using it. I'll weigh my daughter to see if it's accurate. I was 255 this time last week so I guess it's a real possibility. I'll let you know , I have been very picky about sugars and carbs even though I don't have a huge variety of foods to choose from. I'm super excited and hope everyone is doing great! Got to charge my iPad but I just had to share my happiness
