A thread for when Umm Yasmin wants to add marginally relevant comments about stuff



Recommended Posts

Well now I have one of those tickedy-boo things, lads! And to my surprise I've lost 40 kilos since my original Lapband in 2009. Half of that is since my gastric bypass surgery in Oct 18. Actually, maybe I'll reset the ticker just to show my bypass weight loss - it's more meaningful to me these days.

I feel too guilty to start a million threads of random stuff that goes through my head - noone needs that much Umm Yasmin in their lives, so here it will all be in one glorious thread.

Do make one for yourself too, I love reading your posts!

Oh I think I'm all tapped out. I've run the gamut of things I'm going to talk about, I'll just continue to participate in the ones I'm already in. LOL. No new threads.

Here is the trick especially when things come too big/family/value/bulk sized:

Open it over a trash/rubbish bin and pour it out indiscriminately, (stop before nothing's left of course but) and whatever is left in the bag is yours.

Become ruthless on your path to success

Good news is, I'm back on plan today.

I made prawns with a tablespoon of leftover aubergine pesto that was in my fridge. Steamed up some brocoli and Brussels sprouts then when the prawns were nearly done, put the veggies in as well and stirred it all around with the bit of pesto. It was actually pretty tasty. Soz no pics.

      Looking on the bright side: both a loss of 1lb/week and a loss of 4lbs/week are LOSSES.  So long as the trendline is going down, I'm happy.

      Thought I'd give an update.  I'm over half way to my goal, which is awesome, and I've lost over 12 inches in my waist!  The weight isn't coming off as quickly as I had hoped, but I am also not exercising and still not getting even close to the amount of water I should be drinking, so slow weight loss is not all that surprising.  Sometimes I'm just "over it" and try to eat huge portions like I used to, but, thankfully, I feel the restriction of my smaller stomach and can't go crazy.  In general, I'm quite good, just trying to live my life.
      I now have a motivation to start exercising, though... I booked a plane ticket to Germany for the end of September, so this is a good chance to get strong, get hydrated, and reach my weight goal.

      Wow looking through my own eyes I just don't see 50 lbs done.  I took the side my side picture from 4 months ago to today's and can only see some change.  I hope I can keep loosing.  I just read that the window or the honeymoon stage of weight lost is in the first 4 months after that it will slow down and you have to work even harder to keep it going.  Trying to keep positive even if it is one pound I lost in 2 weeks.

      So I had my surgery on Jan 7th. At this point I haven't eaten anything for 2 weeks am giving myself my injections. I can barely stomach the protein shakes that I am to have twice a day. I have noticed a small weight loss not as much as I thought I would have since I haven't eaten anything. I haven't started working out at the gym yet. I broke in a horrible case of hives from my incisions but have since been cleared up. I didn't really have any nausea from my surgery. I don't even feel like I had surgery. I am sure once I start eating  I will notice. To ask others. I have sleeve surgery so wondering if anyone else out there had this surgery how did you feel after. When did you start eating foods. I am nervous to start eating. I drink my 64oz plus water a day but that's about it that I am taking in other than the occasional sugar free Popsicle.
