Recommended Posts

Are fellow Texans the only people capable of understanding you?[emoji4]
I'm assuming DFW stands for Dallas-Fort Worth.
Sorry about that yes DFW stands for Dallas-Fort Worth it's just the short version when you say DFW in Texas everyone already automatically knows that they are speaking of Dallas-Fort Worth area sorry

In Davenport Iowa they talk about the Quad. Cities, and in Cincinnati Ohio and Wheeling West Virginia they allude to the Tri-State, just a shortcut that locals understand. In a more despairing👈😛👉 tone, downstate Ohio refers to Cleveland as" That Mistake by the Lake"

Yeah I think we all get it in our heads that it's going to be fast. That sounds like a pretty good start to your weight loss though so keep up the good work!

Oh thanks ! I had trouble at first but kind of worked out the Kinks at least I hope I have it seems like I have like the weight is coming off a little easier I was over eating and I was eating too fast not doing food journaling eating with a regular size spoon or Fork I was just doing lots of things wrong but I have adjusted to those and also adjusted the timing to eating I don't know maybe you could tell me what a day of recipes or a day of meals looks like to you maybe I could judge from that

      Thought I'd give an update.  I'm over half way to my goal, which is awesome, and I've lost over 12 inches in my waist!  The weight isn't coming off as quickly as I had hoped, but I am also not exercising and still not getting even close to the amount of water I should be drinking, so slow weight loss is not all that surprising.  Sometimes I'm just "over it" and try to eat huge portions like I used to, but, thankfully, I feel the restriction of my smaller stomach and can't go crazy.  In general, I'm quite good, just trying to live my life.
      I now have a motivation to start exercising, though... I booked a plane ticket to Germany for the end of September, so this is a good chance to get strong, get hydrated, and reach my weight goal.

      Wow looking through my own eyes I just don't see 50 lbs done.  I took the side my side picture from 4 months ago to today's and can only see some change.  I hope I can keep loosing.  I just read that the window or the honeymoon stage of weight lost is in the first 4 months after that it will slow down and you have to work even harder to keep it going.  Trying to keep positive even if it is one pound I lost in 2 weeks.

      So I had my surgery on Jan 7th. At this point I haven't eaten anything for 2 weeks am giving myself my injections. I can barely stomach the protein shakes that I am to have twice a day. I have noticed a small weight loss not as much as I thought I would have since I haven't eaten anything. I haven't started working out at the gym yet. I broke in a horrible case of hives from my incisions but have since been cleared up. I didn't really have any nausea from my surgery. I don't even feel like I had surgery. I am sure once I start eating  I will notice. To ask others. I have sleeve surgery so wondering if anyone else out there had this surgery how did you feel after. When did you start eating foods. I am nervous to start eating. I drink my 64oz plus water a day but that's about it that I am taking in other than the occasional sugar free Popsicle.

        In the beginning, I was sure that I would go straight to malnutrition hell if I missed even a dose. Turns out, it takes several weeks to months to get yourself in any substantial trouble. My excellent labwork has proven to me that it's not just okay to skip (out of laziness or accidentally) your supplements, but it probably saves you a couple of bucks here and there. Mellow out is my new mantra. Go the best you can with hydration, protein, and your recommended supplements. Trying to live a stress-free life is infinitely more important than your supplements for any given day. (None of this little blabfest was intended for the lovely and ever-knowledgable GT.)
