Nice try, but I'm convinced you have bigger boobs, and I have bigger everything else! :lol:

Haha! Well I have foobs cuz the original pair tried to kill me. Lol so they will stay the same but losses in my chest measurement really measure fat loss in my back and loss of lymphedema Fluid in my left side chest. Lol. The PS made me get DD's even tho I wanted smaller ones cuz he said anything smaller would look odd cuz of my size and how wide my chest and shoulders are. I so wish they were smaller cuz I don't have much skin and they are painfully tight.

Well, painfully tight doesn't sound like fun. But the silver lining is they don't have the deflated thing going on, like so many of us.

When I decided to have WLS, I knew that it would be followed by PS. I figured tummy/boobs/lipo for sure. But now I'm reconsidering the boobs a little. I mean they aren't what they used to be, but they're not too bad!

Thanks ... I was actually reconsidering because I've gotten some compliments as of late on them, in their natural state, lol. So it made me think maybe they're not so bad?

I also really, really hate porn boobs (no offense to those who love them!), so I have to really careful about picking a surgeon who can give me very natural ones. So the thought of being stuck w boobs I hate makes me anxious.

Yes small take out but it's a ton of Protein, beef and chicken & I ate some before I remembered to get a pic. I can't handle beef well but decided why not lol. I doubt I will be hungry enough for additional meals. Plus unseen was a bite of cheesecake.

I was hungrier and eating more before IF, my hunger has greatly diminished. I'm just drinking more these day.

Ok, so don't know that I will take pics every day cuz I'm compelled to go in and color correct etc. And I don't have time or energy for that. LOL. Here was today's food. I'd post afters but they were clean plates. The thing about being AR is that I know how much I can eat by now. So I only serve what I can eat. I probably won't end up eating the BS cuz I finished dinner at 8pm and it makes no sense to try to eat again in 1 hour. But I did actually have 3.25oz of pork loin. Cals were well under 500 for the day and Protein was 67g which is fine. Carbs were under my limits as well and fat was fine too. OMG. I'm such a nerd.

Breakfast - Egg White Puff

lunch - Chopped Shrimp salad

Dinner - Roasted Pork Loin with Broccoli

Tomorrow is "Toosday" and is an UD. I will attempt 1000 cals that do not include a bunch of crap. :D

@FluffyChix ....That all looks delicious ....like, REALLY delicious!

I'm also super impressed you can get 67 g of Protein in at 500 cals, with all real food. I can't do it without supplementing Protein Shakes, protein Soups, etc.

One thing about living alone is cooking for one sucked pre WLS, and it just seems ridiculous post WLS.

I hear ya on the cooking for one! I usually cook meats ahead, then we have them to eat with different things. Like I'll boiled a pound of shrimp when it's cheap here and freeze them on a tray then bag them. That way I can pull out 2-3oz. Same with chicken breasts and this roast. It was part of a whole loin. So I cut it into about 4inch sections and freeze them. So they make 2 meals + lunch each. Then I only have to nuke veg and do avo/tomatoes.

If you pair down any carbs to only low glycemic veg, limit fruit til you know if you have room left and go for lean Proteins with almost zero added fat, you'd be amazed at the quantity of food you get for 500 cals!

I will admit that I miss my PP in coffee. Since I have 24cals left, I think I will alter my plan to have a decaff with PP in it as my BT snack. Then tomorrow will just have to delay eating until 11:30am. No big whoop.

Good morning everyone!! How did you do yesterday? Any good word for us?

Yesterday was pretty easy. No hunger or deprivation--but come on, with huge meals like the ones from yesterday--how could anyone feel deprivation? But you know...whah! It didn't have cheese or gooey stuff, and wasn't in the form of a casserole! No Pasta, rice, bread, or potatoes! :( The hell??? :) And it was a "feast day"=holiday. Bet you didn't realize Labor Day was a feast day. Right? LOL. ROFL!

I got all of my walking in -- and beyond, but I was gonna do my core exercises and didn't pull it together to do it.

This morning as expected after a day of clean eating and drinking lots o plain Water, I'm back down a couple of pounds to 163.6lbs. It's not enough of a diff to go change my ticker. LOL. So I will wait until next Monday to change things up for the week.

Today is an UD for me which means I get 1000cals. I'll still keep my basic proportions, but will use higher fat items/carbier items to use up the cals. In actuality according to the diet, my UDs should really be about 1200-1400 cals or more. But I can't bring myself to eat that many cals. I'm so afraid of gaining! So I may have to just take baby steps to get back up there so that I'm doing the full UD/DD rotation and getting the best metabolic benefit.

*Forgot to mention, tonight is trivia night with our friends at a local wine bar. So I will have one glass of chardonnay and "whoop it up" then have iced tea in a wine glass. :) I'm so wicked. I used some of my fat for the cals in the chardonnay.

Also, I will likely be adding my psyllium husks in to get more Fiber and I'll be damned if I'm going to count the calories OR the carbs toward my daily totals goal. LOL. So I'll make my menu, then add it in to try to get higher in fiber. Ohhhhhh the little head games we play with ourselves--and the rationalizations...

09.04.18: Up Day (UD) 1000 cals: 30% Protein (75g); 15%Carbs (38g--total non-net); 55%Fat (61g); 25g Fiber; <15g daily natural sugars

Brekky 1: Decaff; Colace; Miralax

B2: 2 over-med eggs with sauteed super greens trio, broccoli and mushrooms

L: sardines nicoise salad (sans potatoes)

AS: mozzarella cheese stick + roasted almonds

D: grilled chicken; steamed broccoli with butter; avocado/tom salad

BS: Granny Smith apple with FlufferNutter Dip (Vitacost Peanut Butter Slim PB powder + WF Marshmallow Dip)

Vitamins: 2 multis, 1500mg Ca Cit, 18mg Iron + C; 100mg Thiamin; 1000mg B12 subling -- don't count the values into daily totals for cals/carbs. Sue me.

Busy travel day, I don't think there will be any meals for me as my non fasting hours fall during my travel hours. So modified water& tea fasting all day (I use stevia & Protein Shake if I want throughout fasting and non fasting hours, it works for me)

I will use the PP as Creamer if I want any (sometimes I like hot tea English style and iced tea Thai style).

But these babies will be in rotation, mostly Water and green tea. Maybe a coffee if there's a decent roaster where I am in Manhattan...

      I received my nutrition book and checklist today! I am so very excited (and a tad bit scared too) Each day this is becoming a reality!
      I created a new blog post about how BRAVE we all are for doing this. Because I think we are! Most of us know the horrors of people calling us nasty names, saying we can't control ourselves, we are easy targets for people's verbal attacks! But I feel we are BRAVE because we are taking control over our lives and creating a new world of happiness.

      Today I scheduled my mental evaluation and my nutritionist appointments. Yes, we are moving along quiet nice.  December 9th will be here before you know it.
      I have informed my inner circle of family about the surgery and I will be keeping it in my CORE!

      Well, it has been a while since I posted here, but my journey continues. As for breaking my stall, I was able to get down to 214 with the help of a friend via our Fitbit fitness trackers which has made me ecstatic! Since that has happened I was fortunate enough to have my insurance company approve a panniculectomy to remove the panniculus (THIS is the correct term, NOT pannus, see this reference: https://www.merriam-webster.com/medical/panniculus) that has been deviling me for years, even before I had bariatric surgery. It was to the point that it was hanging down far enough to cover my pubic area, covered half my thighs when I would sit, and also drooped between my legs which I could hardly manage to keep together when sitting. For any males that may read this, for a woman that is pretty uncivilized, not to mention, unladylike especially when wearing a dress or skirt - just looks slovenly to say the least. Despite the numerous skin issues I had the last couple of years, my health insurance insisted the procedure was cosmetic... 🤐 . I would guess no one that is saying so has been in the bariatric patient's shoes. The damn thing was just getting to be a self-esteem killer in addition to a medical nuisance requiring many visits to my primary care physician, and interfering with my mobility. Now, I realize there are folks with more egregious panniculus sag issues, but the fact that it interferes with mobility is an important consideration.
      One thing I have to say is that this surgery is drastically different from any other I've had. Things occur that are deemed routine, expected even, after a panniculectomy that would be downright unacceptable after any other procedure. This plastic surgery experience is definitely a learning experience that is still unfolding as I key this entry. For one thing, the swelling is a story all it's own, I had no clue my abdomen could get so large, so quickly, without causing my skin to just split open - it's crazy! So far, I'm pleased to have been able to get this procedure despite may be perceived as drawbacks, just to get the pendulous adipose tissue demon off of my person. Here are a few links to information about this procedure for anyone considering it in the future:

I will provide updates periodically on my progress of this surgical recovery. Have a wonderful day!
