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)
