First time posting meals but I did read through almost the first 100 pages of the thread. Let me just say, there was a lot of salad and yogurt... and I plan to continue that trend. 😂

Breakfast was 1/2 cup nonfat plain Greek with 2tbsp Peanut Butter powder and 1/4 cup frozen berries. Ended up eating the rest for first dinner (5pm). Oh, and no sugar added hot chocolate with a scoop unflavored Protein Powder (not pictured).

lunch was 1/2 cup cottage with 2 slices roasted turkey slices and sautéed with 1/4c onion, 1/4 cup zucchini some garlic, and some garlic chili sauce.

Second dinner 7pm was a low carb tortilla crusted with shredded cheese blend and dipped in 1/4 cup simply ragu. Ended up eating the whole thing over an hour.

Was in the area of my favourite Italian bakery, so of course I needed to load up on goodies and spend some quality time staring at all the goodness and smelling the place.

Assorted amaretti Cookies, pistachio cannoli and mini traditional ricotta cannoli: 67644566 gazillion calories, am not even going to bother trying to figure out the nutritional info.

I haven’t any yet, but at dinner later, I figure I’ll have 1-2 of the teeny almond topped cookies (my absolute faves) and a bite of someone’s pistachio cannoli and mark it down as 500 cals...that seems fair, no?

Bring on the sugar coma! (It’s Friday, so eff it).

This is actually the after picture. Was really craving battered fish for like a week. Ate 1/4 of the fish, a battered shrimp, 1/2 a hush puppy, a popcorn shrimp, and a French fry.

I need a smoothie after all that grease. 🤢

3.5oz piece of halibut that I was lazy with and just used Old Bay to season with a shake of Everything Bagel seasoning to get some crunchy garlic in the mix. Made an ounce (dry weight) of edamame spaghetti and tossed it with Taste Cilantro Lime Ranch...and more Everything Bagel seasoning. I slightly overcooked the fish sadly (not used to baking such small portion sizes) but it didn't get too too dry.

Of course, I finished it and was quite happy and then saw the news about Ruth Bader Ginsburg and now I'm heartbroken and sick to my stomach. Considering my day started with being told I had to get a COVID test by my employer and can't return to the office until I get the results and ended with this awful news, I think I'm done with Friday. At least my dinner was successful!

RBG is a hero. A very sad day indeed. Glad your dinner was good! 🤗

All the food I had today. No leftovers. Trying to up my calories since I’m in a stall. I’ve been eating around 600-700 a day and my nut says it’s not enough. With my last stall she recommended I up my cals and add more carbs and to my surprise she was right. The idea of eating more just scares the crap out of me.

Breakfast: Avo toast and an egg on the go. The bf and I had to be somewhere so he was driving while I was getting yolk all over my face.

Lunch: 1 oatmeal banana pancake with microwaved frozen berries and a sprinkle of cacao nibs, chia seeds, and hemp seeds. Also had 1 yellow peach and some cut up fruit.

Dinner: salad with chicken breast (romaine, spring mix, carrots, cucumber, tomatoes)

Snack: I saved the banana in the pancake photo and decided to eat it with a tablespoon of PB2

Drinks: Iced matcha latte w/ almond milk

How do u eat that. I’m having a hard time eating 2 egg, lol

I can’t eat eggs now. They make me so sick since my VSG to RNY at the beginning of August. The fried food was definitely a mistake though.

If I may ask, how do you make the oven crisped tilapia? Everything looks so good!

Season fish to taste then lightly dust with flour (optional)

Place on a nonstick/oiled/parchment papered cookie sheet then bake at 350° - 375° until crispy, So very easy !

      I've hit a stall 9 months out. I'm not worried, though. My fitness levels continue to improve and I have nearly accomplished my pre-surgery goal of learning to scuba dive! One dive left to complete to get my PADI card 🐠
      I was able to go for a 10K/6mile hike in the mountains two days ago just for the fun of it. In the before days, I might have attempted this, but it would have taken me 7 or 8 hours to complete and I would have been exhausted and in pain for the next two days. Taking my time with breaks for snacks and water, I was finished with my wee jaunt in only 4 hours 😎 and really got to enjoy photographing some insects, fungi, and turtles.
      Just for fun last week, I ran two 5Ks in two days, something I would have never done in the past! Next goal is a 10K before the end of this month.

      Hi everyone, I wrote back in May about having no strength. I still get totally exhausted just walking from room to room, it’s so bad I’m using a walker with wheels of all things. I had the gastric sleeve Jan. 24th. I’m doing exactly what the programs says, except protein shakes. I have different meats and protein bars daily, including vitamins daily. I do drink my fluids as well.  I go in for IV hydration 4 days a week and feel ok just til evening.  So far as of Jan 1st I’ve dropped 76 lbs. I just want to enjoy the weight lose. Any suggestions or has anyone else gone thru this??  Doctor says just increase calorie intake, still the same.

      Losing my hair in clumps and still dealing with "stomach" issues from gallbladder removal surgery. On the positive side I'm doing better about meeting protein and water goals and taking my vitamins, so yay? 🤷‍♀️
