Friday-July 26 5'4" 56 year old female, WLM, 134.8lbs

Ok guys, yesterday was a great tummy day. :) I say "great" cuz I had no big huge pains, rumblies, or you know whats! Woot! And things are kinda looking sorta normal-ish! I didn't notice any difference between the early part of the date only drinking fluids and Protein Drinks and end of day where I added low fiber food. But the one thing that I'm very dissatisfied with is the number of times I had food or caloric drinks going down my piehole. And I was hungry again all day! I attribute that to the part where the more I eat and the more often I eat, the hungrier I get and also the more carbs I eat the hungrier I am. And I think that my IR rears its ugly head in response to Protein drinks via cephalic insulin response, despite being low carb--as well as the true insulin response to the carby Pasta I ate last night. So today I'm gonna fine tune the diet and go back <30g carbs and try to eat only on a schedule. So we'll see. I will also just do mostly food today--still trying to stick to small servings. We'll see. :) But no poopies or cramping means my guts are waking back up!!! Yippeee!!! The crops ahr saved!

Here's yesterday's train-wreck:

B1-cultured cottage cheese + grk yogurt (plain) + banana protein drink + banana

B2-cocomojoe protein latte

L-beef Bone Broth + tropical punch protein drink

AS-grilled salmon + linguine + green beans

D-bone broth + smoked chicken shreds + green Beans + angel hair noodles

BS-part of a Quest bar + decaff coffee

GAH! Make it stop! ROFLMHAO!

How was everyone's weekend!? Let's see some menus!!!! Come one, come all!!!

I had a couple of really good days recovery wise. Thinking things were back to norms and this morning. Bam! WWF Smack Down!!! Hellll NOOOOO BIO&CH!!!! Your MINE! LOL. And like that I backslid. LOL. Oh well.

Wasn't good this weekend, nor did I follow any real diet rec from the doc cuz I was just over it all and I rationalized it. Went up and down a couple of pounds. This morning back to being stuck at 134.8lbs. Which is fine. Cuz at the beginning of the month I was up and down a couple of pounds around 136-138lb so it's incrementally still ticking down.

Sunday, July 28, 2018

B-black decaff

Brunch-2 over medium fried eggs, 1 1/4 piece crispy bacon, 1/3 biscuit with 1tbsp gravy + black decaff (Felt like absolute crap and got sick after this meal...like yeah. I predicted it and still ate it.)

AS-1 serving Mediterranean Blend Exotic chips + homemade onion dip

Nah, my carbs were on the relative high side (well, for me at least). I was between 75-100g each of the days. But I figured I was on vacation, so I threw caution to the wind (though I still stayed away from bread/rice/pasta/potatoes, I'm not that wild after all, lol)

Welcome to our group!! Sorry you are stuck at 167. Stalls bite the big one! But congrats on all your success. Your menu sounds yummy!!! LOL I read your snack as 5cups of salad and I was bowing to you! LOL! Just a thought, have you tried cutting out the salty cured stuffed to see if it budges anything? Maybe you are losing and filling up the empty fat cells with Water retention? Just spitballing for you!!

I dunno about inches. I forgot to measure initially, so I never measured because I figured it would all be skewed. When I look at photos of myself I still see a fat girl, albeit less fat, but I weighed this when I got married and I looked GREAT!!!

Fluffy - I am very sensitive to salt/water retention, but in this case, I don;t think that's it, because I've literally been losing and gaining the same 2 pounds for weeks. I think I need MORE Water, less wine (occasional, but still) and more exercise!!!!

Regular exercise makes/made a huge difference. I have also noticed that exercise on an empty stomach (i.e., getting a run in or some class or some strength training before the first meal of the day) was very effective on the weight loss front...well, with me at least

      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.
