First of all people "assume" that the sleeve (Gastric By Pass) is the "EASY WAY OUT". I'm here to tell you it is the hardest and most rewarding thing I have ever done in my life. The only issue I have is eating enough or getting a variety of things to eat. Can anyone help out with that. I tend to stick to the chicken, beef, cheese, Premier Protein shakes and bars, etc. I am having difficulty finding recipes where I can get a variety in 4 oz portions.

Also does anyone else have problems with constipation and if so, ideas. I do Fiber and get as much liquid in me as I possible can in a day.

I love the recipes at skinnytaste.com. Most of them can be halved and lots of them are freezer-friendly. All the recipes have the nutritional info at the bottom. I plan to make Mexican Shrimp Diablo for dinner tonight.

Colace is what I use and I haven't had too many problems since. Use the generic it is much cheaper.

      Have decided on the Lap Band.  Excited, tomorrow 7/24 I have my consultation with my surgeon!  Hoping he will approve me.

      Ok...so keeping my daily weight updated on here is getting tedious due to the the daily 0-3 lbs fluctuations.  Soooo...I figure I'm just going to update every 1-2 weeks moving forward.

        Yeah, I kinda do it when I see a new low. Then it fluctuates up and down up and down until I finally see a new low. Mine went down to 131 on Saturday but is now back to 133, lol. So I won't log it till I see 131 for a second time.

        I do my daily weight graph in My Fitness Pal. Much easier and it keeps a cool graph!!

        Me too (sort of). I gifted myself a fancy-shmancy smart scale back in January and it wirelessly updates the data to Apple Health in my phone, which in turn automatically updates MFP (among other apps I have). Very hands off on my part. Updating BP was the only manual weight updating I was doing, which has stopped being fun and instead become a job, now that the weight goes up and down so much.

        LOL the joys of maintenance! ;) NOT!

        Like @FluffyChix I updated at every new low, consequently I'm now listed as my lowest weight. I should probably update it to where I've been maintaining, which is +3 lbs or so from that weight.

      5. FluffyChix

        Nah, keep your low and stay aware of your upper threshold so you don't hit it. :D ;)

      7 days post revision... I am wiped out! I forgot about the energy depletion stage 
      Logically I know there is some fat left for use... But not much
