No top secret tips from me, just consistency over perfection (Balance)

Help me out @Sophie7713 @ms.sss @sillykitty @Cheeseburgh @summerset @MarvelGirl25 @catwoman7

I agree, no top secret tips here

I think the key is to find a sustainable plan that will work for you long term.

What works for me (but may not work for anyone else)

  • Logging everything I eat and drink everyday. So I know the approximate calories that I lose, maintain or gain at.
  • Weigh myself on a regular basis. I have weight red line. If I go over that for more then a few days I know I need to make adjustments to my diet to bring my weight back down
  • If I want to lose a little then I can do intermittent fasting which I might combine with calorie restriction.

I think it is also important to be aware of what will not work for you long term. I know that I will never maintain a rigorous work out schedule. I am also very susceptible to diet fatigue and will rebel if I feel deprived. So I know that moderation works for me, and not restrictive diets like Keto etc..

BBQ Feast!

BBQ Brisket (à la Instant-Pot then finished in the oven), warm German potato salad (with BACON vinaigrette!!), grilled corn & garlic bread.

You don’t see all of it, but the entire brisket was almost 6 lbs. Gonna be leftovers for days...

I ate 75g of the brisket, 1/4 of a corn cob, and (oh my) a spoonful of the potato salad with a generous amount of bacon bits. This was probably the first time I’ve had potatoes on purpose since surgery, and it was meh...I really just wanted a taste if the bacon vinaigrette (which was DELICIOUS).

398 calories.

P.S. Mr. was in charge of frying up the bacon and he didn’t cook it for long enough, nor at a high enough heat, hence the unappetizing pasty colour to them 🙄

Congratulations on your surgery date.

SIx years out, living healthy has become habit.😁 . There is no weight loss surgery secret. Follow your surgeon and dietitians plan. Be consistent not perfect.

This can be done long term

I don't know your starting BMI, but 100 lbs in six months would be pretty optimistic for a lot of us. Some lose that much in six months, but I wouldn't say that's normal. Regardless, you should lose quite a bit if you're committed to your plan.

I decided to have a mini splurge dinner last night. (I consider over 450 calories, or high carb a splurge) I bought Molinaro pizza kits from costco. 220 calories for 1/4 crust and sauce. I added 1.5 oz of mozzarella 3 slices of pepperoni and 1/3 of an *Italian sausage. I sat down, took a bite and got confused , it was weird and gross.

I accidentally put bratwurst on my pizza! I DO NOT recommend this combo!
I took it off, saved 90 calories and learned a lesson.

How was the crust otherwise? Thick or thin? It looks really really good 😍

For as easy as it is, it’s very good. You top it and it’s done in 8 minutes. It isn’t as good as fresh dough but it’s better than frozen pizza. I would call it medium crust, I prefer thin and I don’t find this one bready. It might be marketed as thick crust, but it isn’t thick like Digiorno.

Hope that helps, I take my pizza seriously!

There are ton of recipes for it, lol.

Since we're talking about weird pizza combos, I could try to make Pasta pizza for variety:

Pasta Pizza

Or if one is really brave:

Pizza with Pasta AND Wuerstchen

I have only ever seen mac and cheese pizza 😳

      I hit my stall ALREADY 🤷🏽‍♀️ been at 300 for almost a week. I’m not worried about it though, because I know that my body is healing. I’m not in a rush, I loss 30 pounds since surgery which was 3 weeks ago. I’m just going with the flow and staying positive. 😁

        It's very common. Give your body a chance to "catch up" with its new reality and the weight loss will start again. Hang in there, I know it can be frustrating!

      First Orangetheory class back after surgery! #347 for me. Determined to take things easy- especially those ab exercises. Looking forward to hitting #350 this week.

        Hi, I have been having a look around the site, I cant find anywhere that you can delete your account yourself, However in the rules it indicates that staff can delete accounts so maybe use the "contact us" tab at the very bottom of the page and ask for assistance there.

      I loss 19 pounds my first 7 days post op 🙌🏽 (Water weight or real weight.. weight is weight to me.. I’ll take it lol) I make sure I keep my water with me 24.7 and I walk every chance I get. I cook dinner for my kids with no problems. I have zero cravings!  By next week I should be in the 200’s. Haven’t been there since high school 🥲

        I had my surgery 11/17 and hit 299 this morning! :) Rooting for you!

      2. UniquelyMe28

        Congrats I’m at 289 now. Its a wonderful feeling, right!?

      Well, starting day 2 after surgery. Felling hunger pains again this morning and nausea, no vomiting. I think the hunger pains are coming from my stomach and not my pouch. Think I will call their hotline and speak with them about it. It is not terribly bad but it is uncomfortable. I do not regret getting the surgery though. I expected some discomfort right after, I just didn't expect the hunger pains.
