Is there a place on this forum that people post their daily menus? I know there are posts scattered here and there, but just curious if there's a specific place on here that people will post what they eat on the daily? Their Breakfast, lunch, dinner, Snacks?

I'm 3+ years out from VSG and haven't lost anything in over 2 years. I initally lost 100lbs but have gained back 30, and now I'm trying to get back on track and have lost 5 of those lbs. I stupidly went back to old habits and don't want it to get worse than it is. Just looking for ideas on what other people eat on a daily basis. Thanks!

I am still Post Op week 1 in my revision surgery so I wanted to show you some extra support. I think this is great!

I know my biggest challenge for me will also be getting in exercise :( I think I am allergic to it like I am shellfish :) I need to find the cure to that ASAP! Sending positive vibes and prayers for loads of menus.

I don’t know if there’s already one, but I’d be willing. To post my daily menus

I tried to get a daily menu thread going a while back, but it never really took off.

I'd participate if you ran it.

The bad thing is that if you create a new menu thread each day it will quickly fill up the right side bar of recent posts with "Daily Menu" threads and be very very annoying. So it's important to plan it out so it isn't intrusive to those who don't want to be part of the Daily Menu. You know?

Yeah, there are some of those on forums on different platforms, and they come and go in popularity.

Perhaps if we stick to a single thread that everyone updates daily, rather than a new thread each day, its volume would stick it into the "Trending Topics" section on the right and not monopolize the "Recent Topics" section, Just a thought.

OP here. Yeah, I'm thinking a single daily thread would be great. I think it would give everyone plenty of ideas too.

      I hate these Lovenox shots.  That is all! LOL
      Feeling like a pin cushion.
      I know they are needed and it's only 10 days worth but I really hate giving myself shots. It's one of the reasons I want to be healthy because diabetes runs in my family

      Yas, I am HOME! Traveling back home was interesting but I made it.
      For the first time in my flying life we had NO drink service due to the turbulence! It was crazy. I had to call the steward to bring me water. You CAN NOT let yourself get behind on drinking! That would be dangerous.

        yeahhhhhh we are only 3 months apart on the sleeve journey. I found it has been way easier to lose with the sleeve than it was with the band...... although i loved my band. Sleeve was the easiest SX i ever had too.....

        @bayougirlmrss I was told this is the fastest weight loss surgery, but I am not really looking for extremely fast. I want it to be healthy. This is our new tool and we can use it wisely for sure. Are you taking your biotin and vitamins?

      TOMORROW IS MY DAY! (note this did not post properly so I am still  posting it after the fact)
      I am so very excited! My sister is here with me and my son. I am so excited. My anesthesiologist called me tonight to discuss our plans for tomorrow. I am not feeling nervous at all. Just excited for the future!
      I did buy a few bottles of CFpreop which is really suppose to help you stay hydrated. It's pricey but I feel it's worth it. I tried the Watermelon tonight. I have to stop all liquids after midnight and I go into the hospital at 5:30am for check in. My surgery is at 8am.
      SO HAPPY for this journey!
      You can get the CFpreop on Amazon if anyone is interested. It comes in Watermelon and White Grape.

      Today I said I’m an XS or size 8 (Aust) at a clothing store. I never thought I’d say those words and say them with confidence. And when I commented a dress was too big on me I was told it was the smallest size. As was the belt I wanted. 
       
      I tried on a slim fitting singlet dress yesterday & was shocked to realise the lumpy bits on the dress were my hip bones. I have an hour glass shape so I always had hips but never ones that stuck out on the front of my body! 

      I’ve been a size 10 before - for about 5 minutes. While I am now confident about saying I’m an 8, clothes shopping is all still a bit freaky for me. It’s not that I’m focussed on the size on the label. I’m well aware the cut/line of the clothes and the designer’s style will dictate what size I need or if it will suit my body shape. The size is the starting point & it’s starting at an 8/XS/38 which is a big mind set change. It’s thinking a pair of pants will be too small & discovering they are almost too big. 

      While I’m still coming to terms with my actual new body shape and size, I’m very happy to be in this new reality.

        ...ah! I see you are from Brisbane! We lived there for a year when Mr. got a work contract there.

        I have fond (and not-so-fond, lol) memories of the weather there this time of year. It it crazy hot yet?

        Hit 42degress last weekend but this week has been in the rather pleasant low 30s (relatively of course😜). Could still wear jeans but thank goodness for air conditioning. Worse is the drought. Everything is dying or dead. Very sad & depressing.

      4. ms.sss

        I feel ya.
