Recommended Posts

@moondoggie1983 Thanks :) I woke up today 3 lbs lighter so my stall has broken. I am celebrating being in the 260's! It seems unreal that only 3 1/2 weeks ago I was 298 lbs.

I am working on upping my liquids, I know it helps with the weight loss. There is where I put all my Protein too. 3 scoops of protein at 30G per scoop so I HAVE to drink it and not waste the expensive Protein Powder.

No problem! I stalled for 10 days and was really down/frustrated about it. Now I’m 5 down in a week. Nuts! I’m between my 800-1000 calories a day now and I’m getting my protein from food as a whole. My program doesn’t want us using very much protein powder or shakes long term. I still put a shake in my diet once in a while, but I’m hardly using my powder. The best thing I’ve found so far are these turkey burgers that have 35g of protein in each one! One lasts about a meal and then a snack. Or 2 meals depending on how I’m eating that day. Add 2 pieces of cheese and there’s another 10 more grams of protein. Good stuff! I never get anywhere near the 90g but I usually get about 70-75. Most days I get at least 50 oz of fluids, but I too still struggle there. I think it’s because I was diabetic and always thirsty before, but now I’m not. I have to make a conscious effort to remind myself to take a drink.
As for celebrating, I’m right there with you! I mean I was 311 lbs 14 months ago! I can’t believe I’m in the 220’s and so close to being a full 100 lbs lighter!!! Insane! I know I’m going to totally lose my sh*t when I hit 211. 😂
I can hardly believe we’re doing so great!! Keep me posted on how you’re doing! I really look forward to seeing your successes and celebrating with you!

@moondoggie1983 That is a really good thing - not really on Protein powder because it makes you very conscious on reading labels and getting to understand your nutrition. I need to start doing that myself. Fortunately I LOVE cheese too. I buy the string cheese in the individual packages so I know the calories and nutritional info exactly.

I00 lbs is amazing!!! Throw a party :) I am planning on a big celebration when I do. Thanks for the encouragement

Hello All,

I am a little over 5 weeks out and 30 lbs. down. I am 12 lbs. away from Onederland which I am very excited about. Some of my clothes are starting to fit big and most of my clothes are just starting to fit comfortably. This surgery has been a big confidence booster. I am feeling a bit tired but I attribute the fatigue to my lack of Protein. I'm in my soft foods stage now so I'm going to try Protein Bars because I'm tired of Protein Shakes. Mentally, cravings and hunger are getting easier. I'm really happy for everyone, this was the best decision we could've made for ourselves.

That’s awesome!! I had surgery May 7. I was 358 surgery day, 8 pounds higher the day I left the hospital, I guess from Fluid and gas...today I was 322.

Still chugging along ok over here. Had to go shopping for a whole new spring/summer wardrobe last week (cheap stuff from k-mart / best and less since I'm only going to need it one season) because I'm now a size 16 and all my old summer clothes were size 22-26. Once I get to size 12-14 I can also start raiding my little sister's and my mum's wardrobes :)

Down to 86.8kg this morning.

Looking fabulous @taoz! I’m buying fall clothes now which is awesome :) my favorite season! I mts so much cheaper though since I can buy from regular stores. $25 bucks at NY&C vs $70 at LB or Torrid is definitely nice!!!

      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.
