But then you're counting the end of the months, not the start. End month 7 = begin month 8 ;)

Crap I forgot about remembering to get measurements and weights taken...

This is just from my surgery day stuff where I take my measurements. But my weight stuff is done month to month cuz it's just easier to say June..., July, etc. I'm actually down for 6+ lbs for the month of September lol.

Posting more golden green milk, made with almond milk, Water,matcha, tumeric and stevia

Some IF plans say unsweetened almond milk and stevia are fine , that's what I go with

That looks beautiful!

Tell me more about matcha please? About how much equivalent caffeine would be in a cup or two? I can drink a full 24oz glass of iced tea with lots of ice without a problem. I can drink "maybe" 1 cup of coffee without issue. But any more than that and I'm bouncing off the wall and fast heart beat etc.

Dr. Fung talks that green tea and matcha have mild appetite suppressant associated with it?

I use Green foods ceremonial matcha (it was locally available and I liked the taste) It has 25mg of naturally occurring tea caffeine (theine) per 2 tsps. So you can add as much Water or milk you want and dilute it if to your need.

I'm not sure about appetite suppression, I never noticed a difference but my appetite was never crazy. Except that time of the month, Sorry.

I always loved green tea (medicinal also) and used it for the detoxification and cellular protection properties. I have noticed that the more green tea I drank in the past the weight would slowly & steadily drop without doing anything else , and stay off (it was how I lost 30lbs prior to wls but at about 10lbs per year without trying)

Research shows EGCG in green tea stimules metabolism. I'm sure there's more to it all such as the L-theanine that helps reduce stress.

I also like the fact that is plant based, holistic and something I can drink

That's what he says in his YouTubes, that it spurs metabolism, has antioxidants and important micronutrients and antioxidants and is a weak appetite suppressant (both matcha and green tea). That's absolutely amazing about your pre-op weight loss with the green tea girl!!!

So how does the 25mg of caffeine compare to a single cup of coffee?

So I almost exclusively drink Starbucks blonde (veranda not willow) and it's ~180mg caffeine for 8oz - that's a lot more caffeine per cup.

      Saw the surgeon yesterday. He is very pleased with my loss thus far. I am averaging about 10 lbs a month. Turns out my nutritionist and my surgeon have vastly differing ideas on how many calories I should be eating right now. Nut put me on 1K a day. Surgeon said nope, they are wrong, go to 800/day. Too bad I have been following what the Nut advised. I could have lost more weight already. Oh well, I will do it now! I am also going to add another day of working out to help break this stall I have been in since 8/28. I am very happy as this week I was able to get into a size XL shirt and I am wavering on pants sizes, but I am wearing a lot of size 18 that are too big or are getting too big. The inches are still dropping off nicely. I saw my parents for the first time after a long time this past weekend (they live out of state) and my Dad who never says anything gave me some super nice compliments. My sister also did...her words as we were trekking through the airport on a long upward ramp were along the lines of "Before the mind was willing but the body wasn't. Now your mind and body are in sync. Before we would have had to have stopped at least once and now you aren't even phased by this." What a great thing to have someone recognize.

        I was there yesterday too! My appointment was at 1:30pm. And its crazy that they told you 800 calories per day, when they told me 1k yesterday, but I've got my own agenda lol.

      Had my final pre-op appointment today. Next Wednesday my liquid diet starts. It's getting real.

      Has anyone reading this lied about your weight just to get the surgery done?

        The surgeons office will weigh you pre authorization for surgery. How do you lie?

      2. MargoCL

        How can you lie, like @skinnylife stated they weigh you at the surgeon's office and throughout each of your pre-op steps. There is no lying in this, everything is documented, double checked, etc.

      3. Coachthex32

        I had to gain 20 lbs. Makes no sense. High Blood Pressure, almost diabetic, and sleep issues (stop breathing in the night).

      4. Leia

        I dont think I could have if I wanted to, they'd been weighing me regularly for 6+ months before the surgery, and then again the day of.

       I don't know what to do for my birthday being that I just had weight loss surgery I know that I have a lot to be grateful for

        What would you normally do?

        Instead of planning a meal, what about an activity that you enjoy.

        If the weather is nice, plan a picnic and explain that you are not eating and will not be providing a cake instead if you wanted you could have birdseed bags that people could use to feed the birds or the ducks in a pond at the park where the picnic would be held. Everyone could bring their own lunch if they wanted to attend and you would only have to make little birdseed bags.

        If nature walks are more your style, do something along those lines and just let everyone know that for your birthday you are planning an activity and not a party. There will be no cake and ice cream if that is what they are looking for, they can just stay home.

        You could ask your friends to join you in a day of caring and you could all volunteer together somewhere either serving at a soup kitchen, helping at a shelter or a children's center or even a senior center.

      I managed to finally break my old school manual Italian espresso maker... Is this a sign?

        Of what?

      2. GreenTealael

        Of what indeed. I thought at first I should give up coffee, nonsense.h Then I thought I should go out for coffee with friends more. Then I thought I should go to Italy for coffee with friends and get a new maker...
