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!!!!

((hugs))) UGH on gaining/losing the same 2. I so get it!! And yeah. Sigh Fluid retention...the bio*ch! :(

I am thinking you also deal with BD. Cuz 167 and 5'8" I am betting you are totes smokin!!!

Aww Fluffs - stahp!!!!! I never thought about having BD, but now I kinda agree with you. Also, I could see myself very easily going over toward the eating disorder side of things - even though I believe I am too levelheaded for that - because of how wrapped up in this I get. I am currently taking a scale break!!

Today I have eaten:

Breakfast, 3 deviled egg halves (homemade) 208 cals

lunch, 1 polly-o cheese stick, 85 cals

1.5 cups of chopped salad 100 cals

Have a Tomato and 2 cheese sticks left that I can eat for Snacks

dinner will be a 3 oz burger w cheese, no bun, obviously!

Ok y'all swamped today! Gah!

So 5"4" 👵 17m PO (WLM) 135.2lbs

B1 Protein latte

B2 egg puff (egg whites, 1 sl HSF ham, froz spin/onion/p/c, lt cheese wedge) + decaff

L BH peppermill turkey breast + lacy swiss + raw sauerkraut + baby carrots + grape tomatoes

AS chicken bouillon + iced cocomojoe protein coffee decaff

D blackened pangasius (basa) + sauteed broccoli + avocado and grape tomatoes

BS seaweed snax

Gah! I have no idea wtf is going down with me. I wake up starving and want to eat every 3 hours. It's totes CRAY!!! Maybe it's my body healing? Maybe it's the big D and I'm not absorbing. Maybe the D5LR IV in the hospital put me back on the blood sugar/insulin rollercoaster, but "we" (all 3 of me=me, myself, and I ;) ) are not amused! I stayed within my framework and cals were low but still. And I'm not losing weight. I'm just stuck at 134-135lbs. Oh well...bi*ching over. :)

And FYI today is equally insane.

Ha. Cuz we all know how imperfect I am. I'm on a string of hungry hungry heifer days. And today it stops. I'm calling the ball on the shenanigans. Yesterday I'm just gonna call a "feast" day. *snort* and it ended with baseball at the park and our minor league team -- which was a big event and fun, but ended in a rainout.

Now today it's time to pay the frickin' piper and I'm back in black--on plan with a vengeance. It's another swamped day with work. So no time for bs from the kitchen and my tummy. (I honestly can't believe I'm not up a couple pounds just from the sheer volume of poo that I didn't have issues with yesterday. I think my tum is getting back to normal. Yay probiotics!!!

So 5"4" 👵 17m PO (WLM) 135.8lbs

B1-coffee with PP Creamer

B2-egg white puff (HSF ham + froz spin + o/c/p + 2% cheese)

L1-sauteed broccoli + iced cocomojoe Protein coffee

L2-lo grilled fish + lo avo/tom salad

AS-BH turkey + lt string cheese roll-up + baby carrots

D-1/2 crispy beef taco + 1/4 taco al carbon + guacamole + charro beans/rice + tortilla chips & salsa

S-2c baseball popcorn (buttered)

image.png.933c3e94aa6ea473eff64ed8164803a9.png

I think this is goin' down as an all-time example of what NOT to do in a day. I'm pretty sure this is the definition of grazing. None of the meals were big (except the 2c of popcorn). Some of them were only 1/8-1/4c, but still a ridiculous number of insulin elevations.

How did y'all do yesterday?

So today I made my “protein ramen” with my Protein Soup mix, shredded chicken, and tofu noodles. Dumped in a scoop of Bone Broth and the whole thing was about 38gm protein.

That’s how I broke my fast at noon, so I’m going to have a second meal of leftover tuna steak (2oz) and 1/2 cup cottage cheese.
Yay me, another protein bomb.

After Pilates tonite, I’ll pour out a glass of plain milk and that will finish me out.

lol, too lazy to log it all right now, but I know it’s >60gm protein and <750 calories.

Yesterday's Menu - July 31st

5'2" ♀️ 9m post-op 115.1 lbs (maintaining)

It's after midnight, so I figure I can write this up now. Spoiler alert: the day ended with a big downer...

10:10 am: 2 cups black coffee (10 cals)
2:30 pm: *only ate 2/3 of this* salad + 2 oz grilled chicken + .75 oz duck breast + 1 oz feta cheese + 1oz carrots (227 cals)
4:40 pm: *ate the remaining 1/3 of my 2:30 meal*
6:30 pm: 1/4 cup low cal ice cream + 1/4 cup brownie w/ frosting (330 cals)
7:30 pm: *drinks and apps at a bar* 1oz beef Jerky + buffalo cauliflower + blue cheese dip + 1/2 a vodka caesar (550 cals)

Totals: 1117 cals, 53g Protein, 66g NET carbs, 79g fat

10:45 pm: suspicious tummy rumbling begins...

TMI ALERT!! So the ride home from the bar was pretty stressful as 2 minutes after I got in the car, I suddenly needed to get to a washroom BADLY..something apparently didn't agree with me and I had some explosive poop as a result. Luckily I made it home before the explosion happened in my pants. I suspect the dumping was due to the blue cheese dip, but it could very well had been the cauliflower, it was especially greasy and I ate quite a bit of it. Or...it could have been the brownie I ate beforehand. The onset of this, however, was much later than my previous dumping experiences as those started within 10-20 minutes of eating the offending food...so yeah, i feel pretty crappy right now :(

Awww! So sad to hear of your unfortunate fire down below!!! I'm thinking it sounds like a fat event--too much in your dinner meal. It hits me within 10-20 minutes as well and it's immediately demanding. Did you feel better immediately after the trip to the trone room? :( 😧

So 5"4" 👵 17m PO (WLM) 135.0lbs

Ok, so scale is moving back down in the right direction. Had a business meeting last night at a restaurant, but was very good. Chose to have a small Greek salad with shrimp. And had iced tea rather than drinks. Woot! Eating was also back to a normal-ish non-fasting level.

6am B1-Black coffee

10am B2-1c Egg Salad with Cottage cheese + 50g Radish chips

2:30pm L-4 Deviled Egg halves + Iced Cocomojoe Coffee (3oz PP + decaff)

6:00pm Small Greek Salad (dressing on side) + 2oz grilled shrimp (ate 1/3 of salad + 1 1/2 oz of shrimp)

8:30pm Quest Cheddar Sour Cream Chips (yeah...sigh...I went there--the whole bag)

      RE: the running/training
      Honestly it started with me just doing laps around the kitchen that first post-op week.
      In a week, I graduated to walking up and down my street, then to walking around the block every day.
      The distance increased, then the speed.
      Then I started running little spurts during my walks, then to alternating 1km runs with 1km walks.
      And now I can do a continuous 10k (which I totally did for the first time this morning...so full of myself about it today, it’s disgusting.)
      Just do something everyday and slowly increase speed and duration, next thing you know you’ll be one of those odd “running people” (who I never understood pre-op, but now totally get, lol)
