Lol. Yup KISS is exactly what you guys think.

Sometimes less is more and just getting back to early PO basics for a day or two is the best plan, IMO

Okay so I’ve been fasting since 6pm last night, went to Pilates this morning, and have to get ready really soon for a 1-11pm shift today.
Before I left, I brewed 8 ounces French roast and put that over crushed ice in the fridge.
Just now mixed half the caramel PP and half the coffee with more crushed ice and it’s pretty freaking delish!

My only concern right now is whether or not I can drink the whole thing. I’m at about the halfway mark and feeling pretty full.
It’s liquid though, so I think I’ll head upstairs for a quick shower and get ready and come back to try to finish this before leaving for work.

Hubs made some skirt steak last night and I’m also going to cut up 3-4 ounces of that and take with some leftover salad mix.

Eating window today should be my normal 16:8

yay!!! It's even more better with a sprinkle of cinnamon and the bananas and cream flavor with the coffee. I call that my CocomoJoe Iced Coffee. Just sip on it all the time if you have to! I drink it in 2 drinks about an hour apart at times.

Is there anything you do to encourage the poop???? I'm 7 days P.O and been waiting!!



Sent from my SM-N960U using BariatricPal mobile app

I normally take the following, in order of desperation:

  1. Benefibre or Chia pudding daily, no matter what
  2. Clearlax/Miralax daily after 2-3 days of a poop no-show
  3. MOM after a week
  4. Senkot-S and suppositories when MOM produces nothing after 2 days

I've been away for a week so I had no access to any of the above, but given that today is day 7, its MOM tonite so crossing my fingers...

5'2", ♀️10m PO today!, maintaining 114.0 lbs (aaaahhhhhh...I finally parted ways with the week old poop I've been carting around in my colon! yay MOM! 😁)

Yesterday, Fri Aug 23:
So my cookie addiction has turned into a coffee addiction! Bought a bag of Beans during vacay and just can't stop from reaching for it and fixing multiple cups for myself in the mornings (which btw, I am currently drinking my SECOND cup as we speak this AM...)

Yesterday's Menu:

Totals: 1603 cals - 117g protein - 35 NET carbs - 100g fat

  • 8:30 to 12:30pm (6 cals)
    • 3 black coffees w/ Β½ packet of Stevia each
  • 1:10pm (335 cals)
    • salad greens w/ low-cal vinaigrette
    • 87g pan fried chicken
    • 27g chicharron
    • 2 tbsp white vinegar
  • 3:20pm (306 cals)
    • 125g cottage cheese
    • 1 fl oz pumpkin seeds
    • 20g blueberries
    • 1 tbsp almond butter

    • 25g crispy pork belly
    • 27g beef Jerky

Yesterday's Exercise:

  • 3k run + 3k walk (so yeah, my 10k run ability seems to be a strictly group thing. Or maybe a vacation thing? Mr said he'd come with me to try again this Sunday, but I couldn't wait and tried again this morning. Spoiler Alert: I got tired at 4k and walked the rest.)
  • 15m strength training (arms)
  • 15m strength training (core/butt)

Your menu looks so yummy!!! Doncha love MOM!!! She cares! ;) Congrats on your RBD! ha!

So maybe...you were eating more carbs/cals/energy on vacay and so you had more energy to get you over the 4K hump? Maybe you could try a pre-run Protein Drink? And see if that keeps you from bonking?

Are you and Mr. sharing the same brain this AM? That's exactly what he told me when I told him about my unsuccessful run attempt this morning. Plus he said today should have been a rest day (since I made an attempt yesterday)...so gonna upping the carbs/calories Sunday/tomorrow and down a Protein Drink (and possibly a coffee) pre-run on Monday morning. Ooooh, I love experiments...😎

hahaha! Why yes, we were separated at birth! ;)

And RBD = Really Big Dump = RBP = Really Big Poop = RBJ = Really Big Job. :D

Can't wait to watch the experiment!!

Okay so broke my fast with this wonderful Soup.
https://www.galonamission.com/slow-cooker-low-carb-zuppa-toscana-soup-keto-friendly/

For extra Protein, we subbed beef Bone Broth instead of plain broth and I also added in an extra 1/2 scoop of the bone broth powder to pack in 22 gm protein in my 1 cup serving.
I can do Soups as long as I slurp the liquid, then wait a few minutes and eat the solids.

There were no leftovers.

Okay link is in my above post.
You have to scroll down forever for the recipe, but it is so worth it.

Like I said, I subbed out the regular broth and used Bone Broth for extra Protein
In addition to that, I added a half scoop of the powdered bone broth to my bowl. (I love savory so much that I’ve got a selection of bone broths, lol)
I also added a pinch of shaved parm.

      Hello everyone! I just joined the forum today. Had my surgery almost 3 months ago and lost about 44 pounds. Most of the weight was lost within the first month, and my weight loss slowed down almost to a stop. I became very frustrated. Talked with my dietitian several times, and it turns out I haven't been eating enough. Who knew!Β I was eating around 500 calories a day, and exercising daily. Well, I had to up my intake to 800 to 1,000 calories. I'll see what happens.
