Here is some food I’ve eaten. Jimmy Deans Light turkey sausage, eggs and potatoes 1/2 serving or less about 2-3.5 ounces. 130 calories and 8g of Protein. The turkey sausage and cheese is 20g of protein but it usually takes me two sittings to eat it.

TIPS-

Check out Baritastic meal and weight tracking app instead of myfitnesspal. It’s made for us!

Don’t buy too much broth. I have 8 boxes left.

PERSONAL TRAINING

So, I’ve done PT before. I was excited about the place I found; I thought it was in my budget. I felt like it was a bait and switch when I walked in a month later and they said the training I wanted was $200 more. Luckily, after a very stressful afternoon we found a middle ground. I start tomorrow on my twice weekly semi-private lessons. I really need this because I need the accountability. I already have aerobic equipment in my house so a gym doesn’t make sense. I need an accountability partner who will encourage me to meet my health goals. So, back to training for me. If I had never left maybe I wouldn’t have gotten to the size I was. Either way, it always brings a smile to my face to make progress with my physical fitness.

WEIGHT UPDATE-almost 4 weeks post op

Down to 328 this morning! In 8 lbs I will meet the “normal range” of weight loss after surgery. That would be 25 down in 6 weeks with two more weeks to go. Here’s a photo from my baritastic app of my losing. Also, I’ve been losing the app for inches and I’ve lost 10 inches overall! I have my first full personal training session today so I’m super excited!

      Hey all! So I went in for my weight management class. I thought that would be my last one but I actually have to wait until the nutritionist clears me. She has to decide if I'm ready. I''m not mad at it. It looks like my surgery will be happening in the summertime. So instead of focusing on the surgery date, I'm putting my energy into losing weight and making sure all these appointments are taken care of. It feels like doing mini quests on a video game before trying to fight the BIG BOSS. I'm not ready for the BIG BOSS yet. haha. Feeling pretty good!

      Finished my 6th and final NUT appointment yesterday.  Everything is done except the psych eval and submittal to insurance.  I did everything required of me including the 100 pages plus of food tracking, I lost 5% of my total weight, and I went to every NUT appointment.  
      Hoping for the best, things seem to be lining up well for me and in the end, I think I will be able to fully have my wife on board with this whole thing.  She says she is, but I know she doesn't think I should do it.  Just like I replied to another post earlier, i'm doing this either way, it's my decision at this point and I know I can get her to come around at some point and maybe even convince her to look into it as well.
      Also, I just started with an APAP machine a couple weeks ago and "holy sh*t" has my quality of life improved greatly so far.  I wish I had looked into this years ago.  I didn't think I had apnea until I had the study done and i stopped breathing an average of 12 times an hour.  That's nuts...

      I'm 13 years out from having weight loss surgery. I would have to say it was the best choice I have ever made. I have been successful BUT now I'm feeling like I'm sliding back and getting comfortable with old eating habits. I absolutely do not want to ever go back to where I came from. I'm just needing support and some pointers to get me focused again. Any one have any thoughts or suggestions. Thank you in advance for any help you can give me.
